It's always fun at Aunt Kortni's House






Poor Kortni. She has these 3 great girls, yes, they do throw some major hissy fits, but all in all, they sit during church, they ask to do things, they stick together. And then she gets these nephews...... Bridger, Branson, and Beck, crazy kids AND little Broxton will more than likely be the same. They throw things, oh no! They write on things, yikes! They think that glitter glue goes on the walls or at least you should be able to dump out the whole bottle at once right? The sage brush across the street is not a play ground? What? Snakes stay OUTSIDE? Cleaning supplies aren't toys??? You can't run with scissors or use a razor to cut your lip and pretend to shave? Kortni's girls are quite creative, but these are all things that Beck has done at her house. She's never had to lock up cleaning supplies or put away scissors, or heaven forbid throw the tub of butter away in the OUTSIDE garbage!!! Nope, she threw it away in the INSIDE garbage and Beck saw her do it, so he went and got it then proceeded to show Piper how to paint the window and Kortni's lovely expensive curtains with it.... Oh Beck, thanks for sharing you imagination with Piper and Kortni's poor house and sanity.






And thanks to Aunt Kortni for watching Beck, so I could go take Paisley to her Dr appt without the nurse having to enter the room in fear! haha!


Speaking of, today Paisley turns 2 months! Wow! She weighs 10 lbs 2.3 ounces, is 22 inches long and her head measures 15 1/4 inches. She is between the 25-50 percentile. She's my little petite angel. So patient, sweet, and darn is she CUTE! I think that she really is an angel baby. And I always knock on wood after I say this, but really, she is so sweet! She is starting to coo and reach and hold onto my hand. She likes her swing and she lays in her craddle and falls asleep by herself, unless her binky falls out, whoa! You better run and get it back in before she gets too worked up over it. She likes to be wrapped up tight in a blanket to fall asleep and I am getting pretty good at reading her cues. Wake, eat, sleep, awake, eat sleep, major blow out, awake, eat, sleep, fuss a minute. That's about it. :) She is so sweet to let her older brother torture her and poke her in her eyes. She likes to suck on her hand and she sleeps 3 hrs straight at night eats, then back to bed. She smiles a lot and has a beautiful smile. I take all these pictures of her, but it is so hard to catch a good one because they just don't show her personality. Yesterday morning I went to work out at 6 am and that is the first time that I have left her. We've always been in the same buidling before at least, like at church, Stephen has taken her to Priesthood before or someone has held her, but I'd always been right there. I was gone for about an hour and it was weird, but we both survived. I came home and Stephen had her in bed and they were both knocked out. If I can't get her back to sleep in the night I lay her down with us and she stops fussin. I know bad habits start small, then Beck crawls in about 6 am or so, we need a bigger bed! I love my sleep, but my babies are only small once! (remind me of this in 6 months when I am sleep deprived and you can refer me to this post and say, "you said it yourself, it's all your fault") So it's hard to say it, but my baby is 2 months old and growing fast. Now I am waiting for my friend Bethany to have her little girl, so I can hold a newborn again! I know, Paisley is still a newborn, but when I had Beck, the only thing I was doing was watching him grow, and now that I have Paisley too, I am so busy raising a toddler as well, that all of a sudden she's 2 months old and I don't remember being able to just sit and watch her grow!

I can't believe she's already 2 months! I know what you mean about not wanting to miss out on anything and wanting to sleep with them because they are only young and cuddly for so long.

Your going to make me cry! My baby is almost 4! I have always had babies its so weird! Its a good thing Avery is still naughty so I don't miss all the messes yet but I know I will! :)

That is so funny about the butter. Thank heavens for little boys!

Bethany said...

Of all the things they could have wiped on the windows, they have to pick butter! That's the worst to try to clean. I love the last two pictures of Paisley. She's so pretty. I love those big smiles!

Yes boys are definitly different than girls and nothing is ever safe. After two boys you just learn that things will get broken and messes will happen and while playing outside they will disappear. But I love them just the same!!! Wow amazing that Paisley is so good. I hope it keeps up!!! And yes she is beautiful!!!

Victoria Gilbert said...

aww you got a good pic of her smiling! She is so beautiful. And all that hair! I'm jealous...Claire doesn't really have any hair, and she's almost 9 months! And I can't believe that she is almost 9 months...it does go so much faster when you have another to chase after...I know what you mean about missing watching her grow. It's too fast....aww i want to go cuddle my little girl now :)
