A little late posting..Julia is 15!!

Julia had her birthday on February 12th. She was excited to turn 15 and get her drivers permit.  Neil took her over to Cody to get her drivers permit. She passed her test and Neil let her drive part of the way home.  She was been wanting to drive for about 5 years I think. She has always been interested in getting to drive.  We are so pleased for her. Now the fun begins. I don't really like letting children learn to drive. It makes me nervous. Luckily, Neil is good about teaching them and I am happy to let him do it.

We love you, Julia!!! You are a special daughter and we are grateful for your goodness and the sparkle in your eyes!! Congratulations on getting to drive!!

Following in her siblings footsteps

Lydia loves books!! When I ride my exercise bike she brings a book and wants to sit on my lap. She loves to be read to and to sit and "read" books to herself. She just jabbers away while turning the pages. It is so cute to see her reading a book.

Dallin's new hair cut

I have been holding out for a long time on buzzing Dallin's hair. I loved his hair and how cute it looked. He was so good about combing his hair and keeping it looking nice that I really didn't want to buzz it off like the older boys. Last week he asked if we could buzz his hair so I finally did it. It wasn't a fun experience. Our clippers get loud and seem to have a mind of its own. He didn't like it at all when the clippers got really loud right by his ear. That was the end of wanting his hair buzzed short. Unfortunately, you can't quit with only part of your hair cut. It ended up with him trying to hide behind me, and me trying to talk him into letting me finish his hair. He finally gave in, but it wasn't an easy decision for him.

He still looks cute, and I am glad about that. We'll have to wait and see if he wants to grow his hair out or face the clippers again.

Look who's walking

Lydia has been walking for awhile now and she is getting really good at it. I love watching her walk around babbling to herself. She sure is cute!!! What a fun stage she is in right now. She is happy just to walk around exploring the house. We all love to watch her and smile at what she is learning. She loves to babble and talk to us all day. I think every baby should have older siblings to tell them how cute and adorable they are. Lydia sure gets to hear it lots.

Hope you enjoy the video of Lydia walking.
