Another First

Amika took her 1st step Nov 18th at church.  I was of course in the nursery, so I missed it:( But Dalin saw it and said she was so proud of herself:) She of course took her step to get a treat! She loves treats as much as her mommy loves treats:) She also took her 2nd step yesterday, and I missed that because I was sleeping:( But TODAY she took her 3rd step and I saw it:) She is getting there, who knows when the walking will come...but at least she is starting:) Way to go Amika! We are so proud of you!:)

Dalins Pre birthday

yesterday I took Dalin to Knotts Berry Farm for his birthday.  We went with our friends Tori and Matt, and Kayla and Brent.  It was so much fun!!! We all had a great time and will sure be going back some day.  We were so happy that the kids got to stay and play with their cousins at Michael and Stephanie's house.  We stayed for about 6 hours and then went to Outback Steakhouse, which was amazing! We went to pick the kids up, but ended up staying and talking to Michael and Steph for 2 hours.  We didn't get home till around midnight.  What a fun day though! HAPPY PRE BIRTHDAY DALIN! LOVE YOU FOREVER!
here are some pictures that Stephanie took of the kids:) I love them!

Amika 10 Months

WoW!! what the heck? Amika is already 10 months old? Time sure does fly.   She is so much fun and so stinking cute!!! She is such a talker as well.  Her favorite words to say are Momma and Baba.  She will say those words for like 5 min straight.  She loves to wrestle with her brother, she loves books, she loves to suck on her finger, she loves her blankets, she loves her crib, she loves her car seat (to sleep in, not so much the car), she loves following Taelin everywhere, she loves our neighbor friend Mykah, she still only has 2 bottom teeth, she loves to eat ALL DAY LONG, she loves to do things by herself, she loves to be outside, she loves to be pushed in her stroller, she loves Achilles, she loves her mommy and daddy, she likes to head butt babies, she loves other babies, she loves baths, she hates getting dressed, she hates getting her nose wiped, and she hates being cuddled.  We love our little baby Amika Namoi.  She sure has gotten big!
She loves to lounge here!

Today while practicing Taelin's M words, he insisted we say a couple of his words.  These were the words that I had to say first, and then he would say them: Basketball (while using his hands to dribble a pretend ball) and Horsey (while galloping like a horse).  He is such a silly boy!:) I love him!

Thankful Post Day 15

Today I am thankful for medicine to make us all healthy:)

cuddle bug

Amika has not been much of a cuddler since she was 3 months old.  Well, lately she has been hugging Dalin & I more, and we are loving every min of it.  Last night she started crying in her sleep around 2:00am.  I rushed in and held her.  I even got to rock her on my rocking chair.  All she wanted was to be held:)  She even turned her body and laid her head on my chest, she has NEVER done this with me since she was 3 months old.  I held her like that and hugged and kissed her for 20 min.  Thank you Amika for making my night a special night.  I love you FOREVER

Family Pics

Our friend Kelly Hutch took our family pictures the other day at Oceanside Beach. We love how they turned out! Wish we could have gotten some with just the kids, but it was getting cold, and the water got us all wet! :) love living by the beach
