19 Months!

Friday, January 9, 2015

I missed the 18 month update so here is one for Cash's 19th month. His personality and language have definitely exploded lately. He says a lot of words, makes all kinds of animal noises and is repeating most of what we say! Some of my favorite things he says are Please, Thank you, I love you, and most recently, Booty:)

He is really into the little grill and play food he got for Christmas, along with these wooden cars, but his favorite, favorite thing right now is Peter Rabbit on Nick Jr. He will ask for "Pete" multiple times a day.

He loves doing things himself, IE: using utensils and brushing his teeth, but his independence comes` at a cost because the tantrums are killer. I know it's a phase, but man, he can sure act out. Before becoming parents Jake and I would always see kids misbehaving in public and vow that would never be OUR kid. The other day in Walmart Cash had an epic meltdown for no apparent reason (sometimes it's just when he's frustrated) and Jake turned to look at me and said "We are officially those people." 

We are looking forward to seeing Cash's personality continue to develop, especially once he becomes a big brother in 3 months!

Stats at 18.5 months:
Weight: 32 lbs, 99th %
Height: 34 in, 90th %

2014 Recap

Saturday, January 3, 2015

In the winter of 2014 we survived apocalyptic conditions and the longest, coldest winter I can remember.

In March, our little punkin started crawling, which was VERY exciting.

In April, we celebrated Cash's first Easter

In May, Cash turned one year old and we threw him a birthday party!

In July, we participated in the centuries old Fourth of July festivities and took a midweek getaway as a family of three.

In August, my brother got married and Jake and I were in the wedding. Cash was the cutest little tot in suspenders EVER. And best news, after 7 months on the market, we sold our first house!

In September we visited an apple orchard with friends and danced in the rain! 

We also announced baby # 2's arrival to friends and family via this text:

In October, we enjoyed the beautiful Fall colors and found out Cash is getting a little SISTER!

Winter came early in November and Cash closed the month by meeting Santa for the first time.

Then, of course, December was filled with Christmas festivities. Tree decorating, cookie baking, fun with family, lots of wrapping paper, and one stressful Christmas Eve candlelight service:)

We are thankful for another year with our little family and have high hopes for the changes about to take place in 2015!

Christmas 2014

Christmas 2014 is a wrap. We celebrate with Jake's family for New Years so it takes a little longer for us to move past December 25th:) We had a great holiday with both of our families and hopefully created some fun memories for Cash in the month of December. And to think, next year we will have TWO kids. Fun stuff.

Bye, bye 2014....

It's that time of year again!

Tuesday, December 9, 2014

I feel like the holiday season started early this year because we had so much snow so quickly after Halloween and everyone got in the spirit early! We have been staying with my parents for three months now, while waiting for a job transfer so we are enjoying the season's festivities with family.

Cash met Santa for the first time and he decided he's not much a fan, which I would have bet money on. But we just wanted a picture! Santa was nice enough to sneak up behind us to get this shot. Sneaky:) He said kids Cash's age are the least likely to sit on his lap. I think 18 months is a challenge for more than just Santa....

The tree is decorated and it has a lot of character this year. Holes and all. But we really love it.

There has been some baking going on. Not all of which was successful, but who needs to eat 100 cookies in the month of December anyway?!

The cousins came over and made chocolate dipped pretzels while Cash ate them:)

And we learned a new phrase..."Ho, Ho, Ho!"

May your days be Merry and Bright....

Our October

Monday, November 24, 2014

Well, we enjoyed the last of our fall this year. It snowed on Halloween and hasn't left the ground since. But weren't those leaves pretty?

A weekend spent at the cabin is always fun, even if this weekend involved a major boo boo for Cash.

Jake and I attended an out of town wedding and Cash spent the night with my Aunt Lorie. I was nervous about how he would do and it turns out he was probably better behaved than he is for us. Go figure.

We celebrated cousin, Jazi's, 12th birthday in style:)

And then...October ended, just like that.

And baby makes...FOUR!

This announcement is long overdue. We are expecting another baby in March! Yes, Cash is going to be a big brother, although he is still completely clueless. We are super excited to have a healthy little GIRL growing in there.
We are very grateful that God has blessed us with another baby and that, thus far, this pregnancy has been much easier than the last.

(20.5 weeks)

Let's  hope for less than a 9 pounder, mmkay?!

Almost 2 years ago I was 20 weeks pregnant with this guy.

Our September

Sunday, October 12, 2014

We endured a lot of rain and someone danced in it....

A fun morning apple picking with friends at Friske's Orchard!

Cash, Crew and Hunter:)

Cash was crushin's on his cousin's tractor!

Bye, Bye September....Hello October!
