Jack loves playing on his Daddy's laptop.
Quite often Ryan will set up a movie for him to watch of a kid website for him to play on.
Jack also really enjoys wearing Dad's headphones!
My sweet little man.

The Other Night...

The other night I was busy doing something.. some craft or sewing something.
Things like that have really taken over my life these past couple of weeks.
Trying to stay busy and not go crazy with the anticipation of this new baby.
Well, suddenly I realized that it was after midnight.
I swear I don't know how five hours had gone by, it felt a lot more like fifteen minutes!
I also became aware of how quiet the house was.
So off I was to try and find my family.
THIS is what I found.
All asleep, all in my bed.

I don't know how on earth Ella is able to sleep with her hair in her face like that!?
I would go crazy!
She's such a deep sleeper, I guess she doesn't even realize.
I LOVE that this shows what I have to deal with every night.
See, Ryan has a special- blanket. Not any old blanket, his silky.
It's a HUGE!
Every night he nicely folds over all of the other sheets and blankets on our bed, to make room for his silky.
Don't get me wrong, Ryan is SUCH a manly man. Until it comes to bedtime.
Then it's his silky and his fan.
Hehehehehe... sorry Ryan. For the sake of posterity I am glad it's documented.
I seriously need to try and find a better duvet, his yellow one is so unattractive!

Sweet Siblings

The other night I went in to check on the kids before going to bed myself
and couldn't find Jack!
He was in bed with his sissy.
These kids are so sweet.
I don't know what I would do without them.
And I don't know what they would do without each other.
I love that they love each other so much.
Such sweet brother and sister.


Over the summer Ella took a cheer class at our local community center.
(Where Jack did soccer)
They don't let parents sit in on any of the classes, so Ryan and I were excited to go to her year end performance and see what she's been up to.
It's about what we expected... hehehehehehehe.
Ella had a lot of fun and that's all that matters!
She was so cute!!!

A few months ago when we went to see Paige's dance recital Paige got some flowers from her Dad and Grandma. On the drive to her cheer performance Ella told us she was so excited to get flowers too!
Oh, okay.
Ryan and I had to go to three different places to finally find her some flowers while she was practicing with her team.
It was totally worth it, since she said that was the best part!
We are so proud of our sweet Ella!!
Way to go BellyBug!

This past weekend we had the opportunity to attend a yearly pool party put on my Tiffany's work. We also got to go down early and celebrate Avorie's birthday!
Jack had so much fun!
This poor kid has missed having a pool!
The only problem was he would take off towards the deep end and scare the crap out of me.
That kid is way too fast and I'm way to slow!
Ella was so excited to go down the BIG slide

I am sad I didn't get a picture with all of the girls.
Those Robinson girls were off having too much fun!

There was a table dedicated just to watermelon.
Jack was in heaven!
I don't know how much he ate, but it was A LOT!
Thanks for inviting us Tiff, we had so much fun!
Happy Birthday to Avorie!

Jack's last day of Soccer

This was Jack's last week of soccer.
I think that he liked playing tee ball better, but I'm glad we did soccer too.
He really opened up more and was much more comfortable this second time doing a sport.
That and Ella did soccer and now he feels like he has that in common with his big sis.
My tiny boy..........
As soon as the mascot came in I knew Jack would start freaking out, which he did.
But after a minute he decided he would be alright to run over for a quick high five.
Progress people.
All done.
Now Ella has her last day of cheer and we're done with our summer activities.
I have to say I'm a bit revealed. I'm getting too big and too tired.
But then again school starts in a week.... early mornings everyday here we come.
I'm going to miss sleeping in until 8:30am!


I LOVE this video of Jack.
He loves being goalie, a LOT.
But this particular day there wasn't a lot of action coming his way.
I think he got bored.
Yep, he's the one with his shirt over his head.
Everyone else running around..... Jack standing there with his shirt over his head.
Makes me laugh every time.

Summer is almost over.........

I can't believe that Ella starts school in 10 days!!!!
Where did the summer go!? I feel like that went by so fast.
(Which is good I guess, since I'm pregnant and that feels like it's gone by fast too!)
Lisa and Tiffany met us at the splash pad for some fun!
I am going to try and pack in as much fun as possible over these last few days of summer!
Jack cracks me up! What a silly boy!

Date Night

Last weekend Ryan and I had the opportunity to go out on a (much needed) date!!
John and Tiffany took both kids ALL DAY!
It was so nice!!
Ryan and I went and saw a movie, out to dinner and then headed over to a REAL Salt Lake soccer game!
(I'm 35 1/2 weeks in this picture!)

It was so nice to get to go with Ryan to one of his games!
I had been waiting and waiting to go and then we realized, this was my last chance to go before having the baby.
It was a lot of fun. Even if I had to walk a long way and made us a little late since I had to walk so slow!
Ryan really gets into the game and knows EVERYTHING there is to know. He could guess what was going to happen well before it did. It was kind of creepy. But I guess that's what happens when you've played soccer your entire life.
I was so glad to spend the whole day with my sweetheart! Just the two of us.
I loved doing what he LOVES to do and spending good quality time together.
It helped that Real won! Too bad I was in the bathroom and getting a drink for BOTH goals!
Thanks again John and Tiff for watching the kids!!!!

Ella's 8 year old Pictures

A while ago I decided to take some pictures of Ella.
We just went to a nearby park.
She's getting so grown up!

Of course, had to sneak one in of Jack too!

What I've been up to......

This is about all I've been doing lately.
Lots of sewing blankets, burbies, hair bows and lots of other cute little girls things!
Unfortunately that means that not much else has been going on around here, including dishes and laundry. Blinging out binkies is way more fun!
About a week ago I went to take some pictures of Ella for her big baptism coming up.
Ryan took some shots of me and my huge belly!
Only a little over 4 weeks to go.
I can't wait to meet our new little one!

Jack Started Soccer

Ryan comes from a huge soccer loving family!
So when the local community center offered a soccer camp-
(just like his little baseball camp he took earlier in the summer)
we just had to have him play!
His team is France!
These silly kids. I don't know what Jack is going to do when Ella goes back to school!!
He's going to be so lonely! Good thing we'll have the baby a few weeks later, so he can have a new at home pal to play with!
With Baseball Jack as so nervous. He would take half the time just to warm up and feel comfortable. This time he jumped right in and participated with his team!
After watching Ella play soccer all last year he had a pretty good idea of how to play

He's the best dribbler on his team!
My sweet boy, he's growing up so fast!
