Oh, How They Grow

Hannah at 2 weeks old

One year old

2 years old

My beautiful 4 year old!

Hannah turned 4 today. It was a happy and a sad day. Happy because it is a birthday and sad because she is my baby girl. 4 seems so old! A few days ago I asked her an assortment of questions. Here is what she said:
What is your favorite color? Pink
What is your favorite food? Mac and Cheese and Tomatoes
What is your favorite toy? Polly Pocket Princesses
What is your favorite game? Uno
What do you want to be when you grow up? Doctor
Who is your best friend? Caleb
What is your favorite animal? Puppy
Where do you want to go on vacation? Disney World

Hannah is so sweet. She loves to play and make people laugh. She is a bit dramatic, but very lovable! We love you Hannah! Happy 4th Birthday! You are such a big girl! xoxoxoxo

I am thankful....

I am so thankful for my kids smiling faces and for my eternal family. I am thankful for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints and for all the inspiring messages that they share with us from our Heavenly Father.

new favorite

Just finished editing this picture and LOVE it!

Life in the fast lane

Caleb is an awesome big brother. I can not complain about anything right now. (maybe some more sleep would be nice! :)) My kids help me so much. I am very thankful for all the help the two older kids give me. And for the love that they give their little brother!

Three little ducks

I can't believe that we have 3 little kids! Since this new little addition to our family, life has been a little bit more stressful, crazy, and hecktic, but not near enough to make my go insane. Not yet anyway! I had tons of fun taking this pictures. If my kids would have let me I would have take more.

(love calebs huge feet!)

A little piece of heaven...

You know the feeling that you get when you look at a new born baby? So fresh and new, ready to be loved. The last few days have been so wonderful. I was terrified that I would have a hard time with this one, but I now have realized that they are only little for such a short period of time and to enjoy every second, and I have.
Love me some baby Porter!

Hannah is such a good little helper. She loved getting to hold him like this for this picture.

Just can't get enough Porter

Our new little pumpkin

Our little boy came 2 weeks early and surprised us on Halloween! I went into labor about 2 am and went into the hospital about 5:30am. Hung out for awhile to "see if this is going anywhere" and then at 11:06 out little guy was born. He came fast and I am thankful that he is healthy. I had to stay an extra day because he breathed in a little meconiam which made his oxygen levels go down. But he is doing fine now. As for me, I feel good. I am trying to hold him every second. He is just so sweet and tiny. I just love this little bit boy!

His name is Porter LeRoy Reed and he weighed 5 pounds 11 oz and was 18 inches long. He as 2 very proud siblings.
