My least favorite sister says I'm "blogarexic" and my Mother keeps leaving me threatening messages on my phone...so I wish I had something great and wonderful to post, but nothin's new around here! I'm going to make a blog book this year, so I suppose I should think of something to write about even though I don't really have any pictures...

This is how we spend our days...

I've been so tired lately. Nogin has been my babysitter while I lay on the couch and attempt to work. I told my Dr. a month ago that I'm super tired and that I always get anemic when I'm pregnant, but she tested me and I was fine. I had to give some more blood last week and they found out I am pretty anemic this time around, so hopefully some drugs will help wake me up so I can take some pictures of my kids doing something productive.
Here's a cute pic from Lauren's wedding. Brynlie (known by some as "Bella") is one of the most wonderfully uncoordinated little people I've ever known. By the time she was 2 1/2 she could walk up stairs without falling, and she can now get off of a step stool by herself when placed on it. When she was little we'd put her on her step stool just to laugh at her because she couldn't figure out how to get off. The whole balancing thing is not a strength of hers. She has an obsession with "And Baids" (band-aids) due to the amount that she thinks she needs...blood or no blood, "and baids" will cure all.
Her favorite new thing to sing is "B-I-N-G-O and Chingo was his name-o". She gets mad every time we try to correct her.
She is terrified of "Sweeping Booty" (Sleeping Beauty) because of the dragon. Luckily we couldn't find that one around Christmas time so we never got it, and may never do so.
Everything is "Prettiful". She's been saying this word for a few years and it cracks me up.
We're working on Brynlie's L's so hopefully others wont need the Urim and Thummim to understand her.

Kelson is Brynlie's shadow and luckily she's not sick of him yet. He's still obsessed with cars and has now added running around naked and girls accessories to that list. All he wants to do is wear Brynlie's hats, shoes, bracelets and purses. At least he calls her purses backpacks. Makes them a little more manly right?
He loves to kiss my belly when I ask him where the baby is, even though he has absolutely no idea that there is a child in my stomach that will soon take away his mommy. I'm convinced Kelson is going to beat this baby daily. He doesn't even like it when Jeremy sits too close to me. Poor kiddo.

    Ohhhhhhhhhhhhh, my sweet baboos!! I miss them so much. Just want to squeeze them both! I guess I could assign Lynie to do that for me as the other favorite Grandma! Hope you are feeling a little peppier Ju-Ju Bee...that continual tiredness is the pits. Love and miss you all bunches and bunches. Kiss my babies!

  2. You guys are so cute!! I can't believe how grown up Kelson is. He looks so big.
    Hopefully they can give you some meds to feel better.

  3. I love the picture of them by the lap top. They are so into it and Kelson is not banging on the keyboard - so well trained!

  4. I'm so sorry you are so tired. I was severely anemic with Emma and my Dr. prescribed Repliva for me. It was my mircale drug! I seriously felt so much better after only being on it for a few days. I hope you start feeling better soon!
    P.S. Your kids are adorable. I wish we lived closer so our kids could play together and we could scrapbook together. :)

I wish I could see you and the kids..........you live so darn far away! I hope you feel better......take the kids to Jaime's house and sleep all day.hee-hee I love you!

  6. I'm terrified of sweeping booty too! Oh, i didn't read the translation...
