Helping Papa

Belle decided to help Papa wash his car a couple of days ago.  It wasn't too long before all her clothes were soaking wet so what better to do than take them all off.  The outside water tap is warm water to help wash the cars (Papa is just a little interested in his cars...).

Clara is getting so smiley now.  She loves to smile a ton first thing in the morning.  She had her 2 month checkup on Wednesday, April 5. She is 11 lbs and 21 inches long.  They had to measure her 3 times because they were sure she couldn't be that short.  She is in the 42% for weight but only the 1% for height. I guess Jarod and I just have shrimpy babies-Belle was little for a long time too.  I think Clara looks a lot like Belle did at this age.  Clara does have darker hair and eyes and her eyelashes seem really long too.


This is Belle at 3 months old. I think you can tell Clara and Belle are related!

Easter was wonderful this year.  Our sacrement meeting with testimonies was so good-everyone had wonderful things to say and the spirit was so strong.  Easter is such a great time to reflect on our Savior and all he did for us.  We had a lot of fun enjoying the warmer weather that comes with Spring too. Belle got to have 3 different egg hunts, one with our playgroup, one from the Easter Bunny with our dyed eggs, and another one at Grandma and Papa's house with the cousins. She knew just what to do this year (after picking up the first egg she found and throwing it back on the ground).

Getting ready to dye eggs-she thought it was so fun.  I let her decide how long to leave each egg in and how dark she wanted the color to be.

The girls in their Easter dresses-matching dresses are a must! Clara was not thrilled about taking pictures.

Not too bad of a picture of my sweet babies.

Sweet Pictures

Here are a few more pictures that were taken at the hospital of Clara.

Sisters getting to meet for the first time-Belle wasn't keen on holding Clara but whenever she would come over and look at Clara, she would talk about 5 octaves higher and say "Oh look at the cute baby" and really draw out the word baby. 


Happy Papa meeting Clara.

This was when we were all ready to finally go home-too many days in the hospital.

My sweet big girl!

Chirstmas Dress & Cattle Drive

Here is Belle in her cute Christmas dress. She even wore a poofy petticoat under it that was my sisteer Tiffany's when she was little. Belle is looking so grown up lately and her hair is getting really long.

She had a sweet red pea coat this winter.  She loves to snuggle her stuffed animals. My mom found this panda a little while ago that used to be mine when I was little-I loved pandas. 

One of the perks of living in the country-having a cattle drive pass your house.  A rancher was renting some of our cornfields this winter and they were moving the herd from one field to the next. Lets just say they were much more coordinated than our cattle drives have ever been.  They had five cowboys on horses and a couple of cow dogs helping herd the cattle along.
