Primary Songs

Tears of joy were brought to my eyes as I sang primary songs to Bekah at nap time. "I love to see the temple","teach me to walk in the light", "families can together forever", "I am a child of God", and  "love one another". I realized I am living the life I always dreamed of growing up. Not to say I don't have bumps in the road because I definitely do. I mean the essential things like having an eternal family, striving to keep the covenants I have made by trying to live righteously, having great friends that inspire me to be good, making temple visits a priority, and remembering my Heavenly Father and being grateful for all I have. I'm so thankful to my parents and the principles they taught me at a young age. I owe a lot of who I am today to them. I hope my children will feel the same way about me and Sean someday. I know the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints is true. I know my Father in Heaven  loves me and knows me. I know that Jesus Christ died for me. I know the atonement is real and I can always repent and become one with God again. I know that my family is forever and I'm so grateful for that. I love my family :)

Ears and big bed

I totally think I missed blogging about Bekah getting her ears pierced.  I Instagramed in but don't remember putting it on here. Sean and I had talked about it before and decided that we wanted to do it before she was too old and would remember it hurting. Also it was super easy to take care of and clean with her being so small. The earrings are super cute! And she looks darling with them. 

This was just before we got them pierced. I went with my mom and sister Amanda to get pedicures. This is how a mom does it haha. She fell asleep on my lap and stayed asleep til I had to get up. 

Noah is now an even bigger boy. He is officially in his big boy bed and he is doing so great about it. I think he just loves the freedom to wake up and get out of bed all on his own in the morning. He does a great job going to sleep and staying In at night. There has only been two difficult nights with putting him to bed since we started last week. I'm so proud of him :)

The things my kids do

Seriously I am so blessed to be the mother to my beautiful sweet children. They do such cute caring silly things. I wanted to record all the things they have been doing lately. So here it is in the first installment of "things my kids do". 

Rebekah is a smiley little girly. She rolls over like a pro. She is so good at grabbing and holding her toys. 

Noah is so silly and says the funniest things. He likes to hold Bekah and give her hugs and kisses.

Noah sings "teach me to walk in the light" which is so special because I have sung that song to him every night since he was born. He sings so many songs now. His favorite is "ring around the poises ashes ashes Noah falls down!" 

Rebekah is fascinated with her hands and sucks on the all the time. She is holding toys now and bringing them to her mouth. 

She loves when daddy sings to her 

Noah gives her hand kisses 

She was squeezing his cheeks. 

I painted her baby nails. 

Hanging out during conference 

He helped me make meatloaf. He told me "messy meat. This is messy mommy" 

He is so pro at the ipad now 

Loves pushing her in the swing 

Bekah sucked on an apple. She said it was yummy. 

Noah bug likes to help. E with the laundry. Such a good helper 

This was adorable. He wanted to push the stroller all on his own so he did. He pushed from the front so he could look at Rebekah. So precious. 

This is a picture of my siblings (minus Andrea she is 3 years younger). I'm 3 months here. Doesn't Rebekah look exactly like me!? Noah is a mini Sean and Bekah is a mini me :)

He puts the pacifer in her mouth. 

He sees Rebekah suck on her hand so now he does it too haha

Eating her toys. 

Love the new hair bows I bought on amazon. 

One of Noah's favorite games is pretending to take a nap. He asks us to "cover me with a blanket. "

He loves his sister
