7 months

Our Princess is 7 months today!!! We love her so much! This has been a big month for Hannah. She got her first taste of real food. She has eaten sweet potatos, carrots (she didn't really like), bananas, and pears. I still make her food and she loves it! I just have to remember to take it out of the freezer or it gets to be a pain to defrost. She also has just started to show signs of crawling this last week or 2. She will get on her knees and sometimes on her belly she goes backwards. I have tried to watch her but she doesn't always do it. She doesn't seem to push backwards but she will somehow get under the couch (yes I have a picture). A few times she has pushed forward. It will come and I can't wait to see what the boys will do. None of our kids have crawled till about 8 months so she is on track for our family. She still loves to smile and loves life. She loves when Ryan comes home from work and he starts talking to her. Her face just lights up the room and she starts looking for him. She loves her Daddy!! Yes, she already has Ryan wrapped around her finger. She loves to watch Ryan's ipod as he plays games and looks at pictures. She will sit in his lap for a long time just enjoying her daddy! Her hair has started to get very blonde and who knows what it will be like tomorrow. I'm still hoping for strawberry blond like mine. The boys are still really good with her. Dallin still asks to hold her and loves to talk to her. She will laugh really hard at him and it makes me smile! Jacob loves to play with her and give her toys. This last week or so she has found that her back or her side is how she likes to sleep. In the past, she would wake up on her back and not be happy. But now she pretty much sleeps through the night on her back. If I try to roll her over when she's asleep she doesn't like it and goes right back to her side or her back. She actually seems to have started to sleep in a little later so I guess her back is her favorite right now. Yes, she has me wrapped around her finger also. She is such a good girl and has lots of patience as I have things to do with 2 other boys and life to take care of. I love our Hannah Girl so much!!

Our cute Princess!!

Hannah loves to play on the floor. She was here and a few minutes later she was...

here! She doesn't like getting stuck under the couch. Mommy always saves her!

I love how she will cross her legs while playing- she's so cute!

Another huge, cute smile!!

Hannah's first bite of food! She loves it!!!

Our happy girl playing- she still is working on rolling from back to tummy. She can get to her side easy but all the way over is hard.

I love this picture- she's getting to be a big girl. She is pretty much sitting by herself.

I love this girl!

When I put Hannah in her bumbo I have to be careful what is around her because she will try and grab it. She really wanted the cool whip and she got it.

Hannah Nicole

Oh my Hannah Girl- I love this girl so much! It's so much fun to have cute pink things around our house and cute to see how Hannah brings the sweet, soft side out of our rough boys including Ryan. I tell this adorable girl I can't wait to do the girly things with her- we will go shopping and get our nails done. Oh I love how sweet this girl is. I love her smile and I love how she smiles from her head to her toes. She gives the biggest smiles and is usually so happy. She is so easy going and content. She isn't crawling yet but that's ok. I still wish she was my little 5 lb 14 oz girl but this stage is fun. She loves life and I love her!!! How truly blessed I am to have 3 kiddos and an amazing hubby!!

Hannah did get her ears pierced a few weeks ago- now she has bling bling!!

Hannah was trying so hard to get my food!! She even wanted my plate!

Even Hannah was having fun with Nana's computer!

I love this sweet girl!

Hannah was talking up a storm to me and was so happy! I wish you could have heard her- it was a good story!!

Our Boys

Our boys love each other and it's fun to see them grow and learn together! I love to hear Dallin say that he wants to play with Jacob! I just love these boys so much!!

Ryan went and got poop one day for our garden. Dallin thought it was cool we got poop and kept telling me what it was. Course both boys loved helping to get it out of the truck. Yes, they all took a bath.

Our boys were waiting for the girls (friends) to come play. I found them like this!

Our boys love to help in the kitchen!

Both boys love the computer Nana gave them- thanks Nana!!

Both boys wanted toast for breakfast one morning.

The boys were having so much fun fixing this car. They had it upside down and doing things to it for about 45 min.

Jacob Ryan

Our Jacob Ryan is such a sweet, cute little guy! He has the cutest laugh that always makes me laugh! This boy sure has grown both physically and emotionally. He didn't like to leave my side and I felt like he was going through the middle child syndrome already. There were some fun, hard days with this boy with his whining and crying. But, we both have made it and I just tried to have patience and show him I was there. I think with him getting 4 big molars back to back to back didn't help either. Getting his teeth are always a hard one for him too. Now, he sleeps so much better and is happier! He loves to help me do things and loves to clean ( I hope this keeps up). He also has the sweetest smile, likes to get into things, loves to play with Dallin, loves to watch Curious George, LOVES to do dishes, and loves to be rocked. We love our Jacob Ryan!!!

Jacob loves his pillow. He always ends up across it. As my mom says, it's softer this way!

Jacob LOVES to help me with the dishes. I now take his shirt off because it ends up soaking wet if I don't. I can't complain. Makes my job easier- I just have to put them in the dishwasher.

Jacob also LOVES chocolate!!! Can you tell?

This is just after Jacob got up from a nap and I was rocking him. Sometimes it's hard to wake up from a nap!!

Dallin Gary

We love our Dallin! He sure is growing, maturing, and being such a good big brother! He can count to 10 and sing his ABC song. Just recently he started singing the BINGO song. It so fun to see our 4 year old doing big boy things. He still does really well at potty training but wears a diaper at bedtime- that will come. Dallin loves to be outside, helping with any cooking, telling me he loves me so much (always melts my heart), watching Curious George, playing with Jacob, and making sure Hannah is happy! Dallin does really well at speech and loves his teacher. We are keeping an eye on a stuttering problem that seems to be getting worse. I'm hoping that it will clear up. We have to stop him and tell him to start over. We think he's trying to find the right word. Dallin has such a sweet heart and loves life. I love my Dallin and am so blessed Heavenly Father chose us to be his parents. He is meant to be in our family and we wouldn't have it any other way.

Our cute Dallin Gary!!

Always Daddy's helper!

Dallin was laughing and in a good mood. We got some good pictures!
