Big Girl

With the arrival of a new baby, I knew that Mikayla would need to be moved into a bed soon so that we could free up the crib for Sophie. So when Mikayla was 15 months, we moved her into a twin size bed. I was really nervous to move her over, I kept having nightmares that she would roll out and get hurt. We debated getting a toddler bed, but felt it would be more economical getting a bunk bed so when Sophie is older we wouldn't have to buy anything else. Luckily the transition went very smoothly and Mikayla loves her new bed. I have heard horror stories of trying to keep a toddler in bed, but Mikayla has been great. She is able to get out of the bed, but she just doesn't. Whenever she wakes up, she just patiently yells for me to come and get her. It is funny to walk into her room and see this itty bitty girl being swallowed up by a twin size bed. She has become my big girl. This is the picture of her in her bed for the very first time. I'm also posting some other pictures of Mikayla because she is just so cute

Back in the Land of Virtual Reality

Yes, I am alive. I know it's been awhile since I've posted a blog. Life has been crazy, busy and full of change. First of all, we moved from our house in Provo after living there for the first 2 1/2 years of our married life. It was sad to leave the house, our ward and friends, but it's nice to have new opportunities and meet new people. We bought a condo in Eagle Mountain and we love it! The move was high stress as I was 3 weeks away from delivery as we packed up everything. Luckily we got everything settled in our new home a few days before Sophia came. Next blog I will post some pictures of the place, but for this blog I wanted to post pictures of our newest addition. On Aug. 6th, Sophia Nicolle was born at 12:27. She was just a little peanut, weighing in at 6 lbs 10 oz. She is the cutest little girl and already I can't imagine life without her. It's hard to believe that she is already 2 weeks old! Mikayla is a great big sister, except when I nurse Sophia. I think Mikayla knows that I can't give her my full attention while I'm nursing, so she tries to get it anyway she can. I love my two girls! Now, sit back and enjoy the pictures of Sophia Nicolle...

Sisters (No Mikayla isn't holding Sophie by herself. My sister-in-law took this picture and photoshopped me out)
