Hailey is 4 1/2 and is so FULL of life! She always has a "great idea" as she would say and she is always looking to have a good time. She is a party waiting to happen. This is a picture of her and John from last week as they were walking to the bus stop. I tried to get a shot of her face but she refused in her grumpiness! This was the best I could get...her pouting! She is STILL crying every day but at least John doesn't have to carry her anymore. Some days are better than others, but she hasn't had a day without crying a little. She comes home so happy though and shares songs and talks about her friends. She is always excited about the weekend when she gets to play with Isabella!

Isabella is now 1 3/4! This is a picture of her and her cousin Madeline! We had a great visit with my sister-in-law and her three kids a few weeks ago when they traveled here from Tennessee. They are 5 months apart and will hopefully be great friends someday.
Isabella is talking more and more everyday...I love this stage! She is sleeping in her bunk bed with Hailey on the top and I'm sure she thinks that she is so cool. Whenever John or I try to lay on her bed she tells us, "MINE"! She is still LOVING her pacifier and it will be interesting when we try to cut her of that habit! For those of you wondering if I'm still glad that I let her have one-the answer is HECK YA! I know that every mom has there own opinion about binkies and my opinion is that if the child likes them, let them have it! I do not think that it's so great to have a three year old walking around with one so someday we'll have to break the habit.
Today Talon is 2 months old! Where has the time gone? He has started smiling a ton and loves to play peek-a-boo! He still cries quite a bit during the day, but it's just because he wants to be held. I wish that I had more arms sometimes. He is such a sweet little boy and I can't wait to get to know him more and more everyday as he is showing more of his personality. He loves to run errands and sleeps great most of the time...as long as we are on the move he's sleeping.

All of my children have been sick for the last two weeks and we look forward to the next week of hopefully healthy bodies. John and I have both had it as well, but luckily we are over it! John stayed home from church with the girls (Hailey had a fever of 103) and Talon and I went and enjoyed a relatively relaxing sacrament. When I came home, the house was sOoOOoooO clean! Thanks honey! He mopped the floors, cleaned the couches (vacuumed between the cushions) and scrubbed anything else in his path! Gotta love that!! He was even still in his church clothes (he had been at early morning meetings all morning). There's nothing better than a clean house, a handsome husband, and well rested children!

Enjoyed your update, Katrina. Your kids are so cute! Also, would you have John talk to Markus? I could use a good house cleaning. : )
