With Cousins

One of our favorite things to do is hang out with the cousins at Grandma and Grandpa Wilkes' house. Here are some cute videos of Aiden and Parker jumping on the couch (one of the first things they do when they get there!) and Parker talking to Sariah.

Our wonderful girl

Being a mother has brought joy to my life that I have never known. It is completely different than graduating from college, falling in love or getting something for Christmas that you prayed for months for. It is a deep forever joy that only a mother can describe. The world really depicts mothers and almost degrades them these days. After becoming a mother, I realize how difficult and challenging it is but nothing of worth comes easily. Every runny nose, every poopy diaper, every cry at 2am for the pacifier, every grab of the nose and every spit up on my clean church dress is worth one smile, one laugh, one rest of her head on my shoulder, or one look of pure love. I thank my Heavenly Father every day for our beautiful girl and give thanks that she is healthy and cute. =)

I am 4 Months Old Today

I am 4 months old today!

I can laugh really cute.


I am starting to push up onto my knees.


I can reach for objects and grab them.


I have my 2 bottom teeth that are going to pop through any day!


I am sleeping 7:30 pm to 7 am every day.


I recognize my mommy and daddy.


I love the sound of my own voice so I talk all the time.


I am rolling over constantly.

I am VERY independent and will be sure to tell you so.

I want to do things on my own and get frustrated when I can't.

I love my cousins and all my grandmas and grandpas.

No one is more beautiful, more cherished, or more loved...

Daddy Dresses Me...

Well *sigh* I had to go back to work. I am so fortunate that I have had 4 months at home with my darling little girl. Thankfully, I'm done in May because I am a teacher. Sariah stays with my sister-in-law during the day which is also a blessing. There is no other place I would rather have Sariah be than at Aubry's house...besides my own. I cried all the way to work Monday morning! What is nice is that Jared gets all morning with Sariah. I leave the house at 7am, so Jared gets her up, feeds her, dresses her and takes her to Aubry's around 8:30. He loves spending the mornings with her! Here is what she looks like when Dad dresses her.

Our Little Lion

Bathing is a family event! With Jared in school so much, having him home a couple nights is such a treat. We bathe Sariah together, and this is what happens...

Cutest Caterpillar EVER!

We did a little poll on what Sariah should be for Halloween, and Caterpillar won at the last possible minute. So here she is, folks...drum roll please...







And then the hood fell over her face...





Here she is with Grandma at our Trunk 'R Treat. Not a very good picture of Sariah, but a wonderful picture of my mother!



Here are the two cutest fire fighters in the world! Aiden, 3 and Parker, 2 with my sister, Kendall.



I can't wait until next year when Sariah is one and I can take her around to all the cars!!!

Lounging

Here she is, lounging in one of her favorite places...

Thumb Sucker!

Here she is, going after her beloved thumb...

Hanging on with both hands!

She is getting so good at using her hands! She's starting to reach for objects, and purposefully sucks her hands. Here is the cutest picture of Jared feeding her - and she's hanging on to him with both hands!


Whoa!

Nice expression my darling little girl.
