May 2016


We started off May with our sweet baby girl Stella and life did NOT slow down!

In the hospital Stella got to meet Auntie Shannon and Linda, with lots of visits from dad and Wilson.


Poor baby girl wasn't ready to go home I guess, or didn't want to have clothes on.  She looked so tiny in Daddy's arms! I always love seeing Brad hold the tiny little newborns.  We had a nice quick stay at the hospital and a quick check out and I was able to just walk to the car, mostly because it was so dang close since the maternity unit isn't huge. 


Talia got to hold Stella as soon as we got home and was SO excited! Wilson still couldn't get enough of her. 

So we got home on the 3rd, and Brad's dad got into town and took all the little kids to the Aquarium! Stella and I stayed home but Brad took Wilson and had a blast! He loved the penguins and per usual running around.  It was a perfect outing to get him out of the house!


Brad said that Wilson loved watching the penguins and kept wanting to go back to them.


Wilson wanted to give the whale a hug.  He's such a sweet boy and is always willing to give anything or anybody a hug or a kiss!


Stella is such a little lump, she would stat on my shoulder and would slide down into my boobs! haha 
Stella wasn't a big fan of her bath, she was waiting for Grandma B to come and do it right.

On the 5th Brad's Aunt, Uncle, Grandma, and cousins were in town from Washington to drop Emily off at the MTC for her SLC Mission, we couldn't let them miss an opportunity to meet Stella! So we had them over and they got to meet a 4 day old Stella!
Then later that night Dave came over to meet Stella and took Brad out to dinner!


Grandma B got in town the night of the 5th and Grandpa Bob came the night of the 6th!
Mom was a huge help and kept Stella at night when she wouldn't settle in a sleep.


Stella getting her bath from Grandma B, and she clearly enjoyed it better! She also looks so sweet in one of her outfits from Grandma B!

Mom and Dad were in town because Davin was baptized on the 7th, just a week after Stella was born.  That was my first outing out with Stella and she did amazing.  I was so happy we could be there to support Davin and again so many people got to meet our brand new Stella. 


After the first week of Stella being here we finally slowed down on the visitors.  Wilson and daddy spent a lot more time snuggling and adjusting to moms lap not being available. Stella had such cute little outfits I could have posted them all, but that would be a looong post! lol


More hanging out! Wilson loves all things Stella, he thinks all her stuff is his.  We also tried to rest as much as possible and it still wasn't enough.  Baby #2 has been a lot harder since I still have a cute toddler to take care of, and he's not cool with mommy napping randomly.  As soon as we got him down for a nap, we'd eat, and rest!


Poor Wilson would get a little stir crazy, so we would go on small walks.  I bought a wrap to carry Stella in and it was perfect and made it so we didn't have to pull out the stroller!


She's just so dang cute!


Brad had been looking for an internship for the summer and landed as an intern for the Orem Owlz! It's a great opportunity and he's excited to be writing for them!


Wilson loves the Bean Museum and we love it because it's free and a perfect outing! Wilson runs up to every animal and tells us loudly either what it says or just yells some gibberish.  It's pretty adorable!


Hanging out in Wilson's room building super tall towers! Every time Wilson added a block he would say, "Whoooa!! Tall Tower!" 


The realization that I will never be alone again! haha I can't leave Stella alone with Wilson because he's a little to rough and Wilson has to be wherever we are!


Talia had a dance recital!! She's so cute and we can never miss one of these! Wilson was shockingly very good and 3 week old Stella was perfect!


This tiny little dance was adorable and danced beautifully!


Our laps are always full now and you can't have one without the other! 


Brad took some adorable pictures of Stella and I'm so in love! 


She's so tiny!


Wilson seems to just get funnier and more adventurous every day! He's such a firecracker and keeps us on our toes daily!


Right by the house is this big Bounce House place and we had such a blast! Wilson could have stayed longer than the 2 hours mom and dad barely make it too. Ha But he went down every slide and could do a lot of it by himself!


He loves jumping into the foam pit and thinks it's the funniest thing! I love how independent Wilson can be, he's so brave and with a little bit of help will try almost anything.


We're still working on being soft but he loves to give Stella fist bumps (pounds)!
This is actually the first time he help her, he hadn't shown any interest in holding her so we never pressed it.  He decided he was ready and it was such a sweet moment, emphasis on moment!


Our 2 bathing babies!


Apparently mohawks is all this momma knows!!


We went to the park to feed the ducks and play at the park.  While there Brad was holding Stella and someone asked him if he was holding a doll. lol It was pretty funny!


Decided to try out the Provo Park Splash pad and it did not disappoint! Wilson preferred to run around it and get just a little wet but it was perfect!


Found some shade for our little picnic!


One Sunday we took Wilson's picture in front of this brick wall outside our apartment, now every time we walk to the car he stops and waits for us to take his picture.  He won't ever look at us but he waits till the picture is taken then goes to the car.  It cracks Brad and I up! 
May was an exhausting, fun month but was so much fun! We loved seeing a TON of family and making time to go do a few fun things!
