We had Gemma's first birthday party on friday. I don't think she really knew what was going on but she had a good time. I originally planned on playinh kickball and eating hot dogs, but we just had the kids play on the playgroung instead. We had a great time visiting and bbqing. Grandma K surprised us and was there. It's always fun to see her!! Here are a few pictures from the party...

My baby girl turns one today. Wow, where did the year go? There really is no feeling like holding your baby for the first time. All the pain and struggle you went through for nearly 10 months just doesn't really seem relevant anymore, quite trivial, when they look at you for the first time and you know that they know your their mommy. There is no better feeling. Gemma is such a sweet baby, definately rambunctious and busy but she is so sweet. I can't believe the year went by so fast. I am so grateful to have her with us and I can't wait to watch her growand learn and help her through all life's challenges... lets hope they're not too hard :D I love you Gemma!!

So for those few who do follow, or atleast check out the blog, sorry for the no postage. I am stuck in between the busy life of an almost three year old and the very much non stop life of a nine month old. Not to meantion mine.. oh wait... that's pretty much my life, haha. Anywho, after a long and trecherous nine months and one week Gemma is now officially crawling, and yes, had her first spill out the front door that her very gracious older brother opened to let the dog run away. Luckily the welcome/ wipe your muddy feet mat, padded her fall and she crawled away from the accident with just a red bump. Her brother on the other hand walked away with a red rump. (catch the rhyme?) Coop stain is doing well, he almost has all of his shapes down, we are working out the difference between a hexagon and a pentagon, but it's only one side right?? As for Levi and I, it's the same ol' thang, work, kids,laundry, work, school, work, dishes, you know the drill. I hope all is well with ya'll. Until next time...

Quoting my sister Leah," Life is just passing time between meals..." I do live by this standard (usually not my meals but you get it), unfortunately mine also revolves around changing diapers as well, and picking up toys, wiping cheeks, facial or non..., gettin' boogs, wondering when the next naptime is etc. just loved these pics...
My favorite nap time.
Yes that is food in the nostrils, eyes, and hair. I have no idea how it happened

It was Levi’s spring break so we headed down to St. George to see the fam. We had such a great time!! We first stopped off at Dain and Alyse’s on Friday and Saturday. Levi and Dain went golfing on Friday with Ben in Salt Lake and Alyse and I hung out at their house with Josh when he got off of work. Then the guys were off again playing some tennis in the morning and we took the kiddies shopping. WE stopped at Wal*mart on the way to the mall and bought a stroller and had the funnest time trying to get the zip ties off in the parking lot. A nice guy came over and helped us get them off, apparently all you have to do is push the little tab down and they come right off… yet another thing boys learn in High School that we somehow miss. :D Later that day we headed off to Leah and Steve’s new house in Eagle Mountain. It is awesome. I am jealous. Then off we went to SG. We had a great time swimming at the SHAC and having Gemma’s half party. Her cake didn’t turn out so I’m going to have to make one and just take pictures… Mia and Dar came over before they headed up SLC for the weekend and we got to compare the babes. Man Kalem you are huge. Believe it or not Gemma is older.. Check out the pic, he is like twice her size. I just read Erika's blog about Q and man that kid is crawling!!! I would say I'm jealous, but I'm not. :D I can still leave the room with minimal worries haha... Cooper and Gemma were soooo happy to see all their cousins and Grandparents. Coop wanted to go back right when he saw we were home. We will hopefully get to go back soon so he isn’t gone too long.
Our little fam at SHAC... My mom is comvinced Jo's boys got crypto from it, but my kids are fine :D
Coop with Levster. They sure had a fun time on the slide
Check the Dif... And coming from those two :D J/K
Gemma with Great Grandma, she enjoyed her first taste of chocolate
Needless to say we were exhausted at the end of the week

There have been some recent inquiries on whether or not we are alive, but yes, yes we are :D We have had a busy couple of weeks. We moved into a new place in Boise, closer to school and work. We like it so far we have a lot of space and it's quiet. a luxury we have come to cherish :D (love you Gublers!!) Anyway here is a picture of the outside of our new apartment, the inside is a bit of a mess and i don't feel like cleaning it up for the blog...
Apparently people don’t buy TV’s larger than 32” because the niche above the fireplace made especially for TV’s doesn’t fit anything larger. Levi rigged up a shelf thing to stick out on the edges so our TV would fit. It works out…
As far as kids go, ours are great. Coop is livin’ it up in his new room. Not that he didn’t love living under the stairs. Haha. He loves going for bike rides to the gas station to get a drink even though it takes like an hour (it’s only 2 blocks:D) digging in the dirt out back, and playing with Gemma.
Gemma is the big 6 Months and I’m planning a half birthday party while we are in St.George for 10 DAYS!!! WooHooo!!!! She says Da-da, I was a little offended at first because, after all, i did birth her... but then I remembered Coop said Ma-ma first, so I guess Levi and I are even. She is sitting up and and playing and being the cutest and sweetest baby I know.
Well I hope all is well and we hope to see everyone while we are in the big SG!!!

My favorite thing in the morning is to snuggle with my kids. Lately Gemma has been making faces. They are seriously hilarious. Here are a few of my favs...
I call this the Penny. They both share the "square" (because of the shape) smile. Isn't it Cute!!
The Jaden. One of my favorite baby pictures of Levi's brother Jaden he makes this... I'm going to say "constipated" look... It's really funny (but cute)This picture reminds me of it.
The Levi... enough said?
The Cooper. Even though they look nothing alike in this picture, There is a picture of cooper on this same play thing and you would swear it's the same kid
I call this the Melissa. I'm not sure why... It just reminds me of her, maybe there is a similar baby picture or something.

I just read about Gemma's two little boy cousins that are almost her exact age and they are flippin' MONSTERS!!! haha. I Know Gemma is a little small, well i prefer petite, but sitting up at four months, c'mon. Poor little thing, she is just now comfortable pushing her head up and resting on her elbows while laying on her stomach :( I try and give her a lot of tummy time, but she gets so mad she will just yell and scream until i turn her over. The little fart. I'm not too worried she'll catch up. You two Monster Mommy's quit braggin'! :D

I was looking through some of my pictures today and decided i gave birth to twins... at different times...and different genders... but you get my drift. Gemma and Cooper look so much alike it's scary! None of my genes were passed on, they are both going to look just like Levi. Haha.. I hope Gemma doesn't. Here are a few examples of both of them right about the same age...
