Surprise & Things my kids say...

Our family recently moved to Las Vegas so that Matt can attend an accellerated nursing program. About a month after we moved, out of the blue I was laid off from my job that I had been at for 5 years + 2 summers in college (so were 12 of my coworkers). Three days after that I found out in the ER (checking on my ulcer/acid reflux) that I am prego with baby #3!

Earlier in October my mom called to tell me that she had had 2 dreams where I was pregnant with TWINS!! This was WAY before I was even pregnant! I have gone in of an ultrasound but was too early and nothing could be seen.... so we are hoping for no twins but if it is then I guess our Heavenly Father truly does have big plans for us! This baby/babies is due July 9th and Matt will still have 7 months left in school, Eliza will be 2 1/2 months shy of 4 but at least Luke will be 2! ha ha

What a whirlwind of events in such a short amount of time! I might try blogging again but don't count on it. I just wanted to note some of interesting moments and some of the cute things my kids say!

Cute things my kids are saying:

Eliza (3 yrs, 2 months)

Finger nails = pingernails (She has said this for quite a while but it is starting to fade :(
Finger nail polish = paint polish
She calls us all "my best friend in the whole world" (courtesy of My Little Pony)
When Eliza was looking at our wedding video she said, "My mommy is a beautiful princess and my daddy is a handsome prince."
Eliza told our neighbor Robin, when looking at our wedding picture. "That is my mommy and daddy when they were a little bit younger."

Luke (18 months)
Only says...
Hot dog
uhhh uhh

Stinky toes

Sometimes when my kids get cranky while I'm changing their clothes or diaper I will smell their feet and say "ewww stinky feet!" while my nose is scrunched up and they LOVE it. They laugh and smile and their frown has been turned upside down.

Tonight while Matt was reading scriptures and (Eliza was sitting on her little potty) Eliza was picking up Luke's feet and would say "eww stinky feet!" and he would laugh and laugh! She just kept doing it the entire time Matt read and they were having the best time! Little things like that make me so happy that I have chosen to have a family. I definitely wouldn't trade Matt or my two munchkins for anything in the entire world!!

Hide & seek

We are all obsessed with hide and seek at least once in our lifetime. Well for Eliza that time is now!

We play everyday at least four times. At first I hide, she counts "1, 2, 5, 8, 4, here me come!" and then as she's getting close she says "mommy where you?" and of course I say "Liza, oh liza" in whatever silly voice I feel like until she finds me.

Then she wants to hide in the same spot I just did. Or she wants me to hide again in the same spot but under her blanket. Lol because an adult under a blanket is as good as any hiding spot!

Last week I hid next to the laundry basket and put Luke in the basket. Eliza liked it do much she wanted in while I found her. By the time I got to the basket after counting she was done with that spot. Can't you tell?!?!

Gotta love her!

"Feed my baby!"

Two nights ago Eliza was supposed to be going to sleep but she kept coming out of her room. At one point we thought she was asleep and then all of a sudden her door handle started to twist and she said, "Feed my baby mommy." When she came out of her room her pjs were unzipped and she was carring her baby.

Matt and I were sitting on the couch and as Eliza approached us she said, "Feed my baby." as she brought her babies head to bare chest. It was too funny! I guess she just wants to be like her mom!

Having fun & Eliza at 2 1/2

On Tuesdays we have Joy School and on Thursday we have playgroup, the other three days we are hanging with our friends, running errands or doing something not so noteworthy... but some days we just sit in the kids' room and play. On this day Eliza got out the birthday supplies and Luke and Liza couldn't have been more fascinated with the balloons.

My two little ones are TOO cute. Eliza is about 2 1/2 and Luke is almost 10 months and they are BEST friends!
Eliza couldn't get enough of the tape. What a funny girl.

So what is Eliza like at 2 1/2 years old?
- Smart
- Silly
- Funny
- Dancing queen: We watched the new Footloose movie and Eliza danced for the ENTIRE movie. She loves to say, "I shake my booty" while she is dancing and it is HILARIOUS!
- Loves trying to sing hymns: Today she sang "My mommy, my daddy, my Lukey" over and over in Sacrament meeting during the songs.
- Doesn't want to go potty on the big girl potty
- Comes out of her room a billion times when she doesn't want to take a nap. When she is tired she is asleep in 5 seconds.
- When we put her to sleep she said, "No turn on lights" which actually means leave the light on. We have to turn off her bedroom light after she falls asleep.
- Loves playing in Ellie's crate, consequently so do all of her friends!
- Everyday she asks when she is going to see her friends. Then she starts to name them: Nah (Savannah), Abby, Raegan, Ella, Kylie
- Any word with a double "l" she sticks out her tongue multiple times during the "ll" part.
- Loves Mickey Mouse
- "Sure" is her favorite answer to a Yes/No question.
- Can count to 10 with help on 7:Yesterday we were driving in the car as a family and Eliza started counting. She got all the way to 6 and then started skipping through the numbers. That was the first time she counted all the way to 6 by herself. At that moment I was so proud and a little sad that my little girl is growing up :(

All in all, we can't get enough of her and we don't stop laughing when she is around. Eliza LOVES her Lukey and tries her hardest to play with him.
