There is nothing I love more than watching Liv love her brother. She wants to include him in everything she does. I mean, sure, she wants to put her feet on his face, hug too tight, and just torment him sometimes, but she really loves him! And Kade really loves his sister. He lights up when he sees her in the morning and loves snuggling her in mom and dad's bed. What a rewarding sight to watch your kids love one another!

On Friday night our little family and our friends, the James', went to Day out with Thomas in Heber. Olivia thought it was the greatest thing ever. She just loved it! We rode Thomas (the Heber Creeper), played mini golf, got Thomas tattoos, played with Thomas train sets, and got pictures taken with Sir Topham Hat and Thomas. It was so fun to watch what a great time she was having. I just love being a mom and watching my kids have fun and seeing them happy. There's nothing better!

Olivia is obsessed with the show "Jake and the Neverland Pirates" on the Disney channel right now. She wants to watch it every morning. Well, Jake wears a bandanna around his head, so Olivia has been wearing one for almost a week now and will not take it off. She sleeps in it, wears it to the store, and even wanted to wear it to church (I had to put my foot down there and tell her it wasn't reverent to wear bandannas to church, to which she agreed). If I call her Olivia she says, "No mom. I'm Jake". So, needless to say, I and everyone else has been calling her Jake since last Tuesday. It's quite hilarious! She even wants Kade to be a pirate!

We are so dang happy to have Kade home with us. He's been home for two weeks now, and we just can't get enough of him. He's such a good baby. It feels like he's always been part of our family. Liv is the sweetest big sister ever. She loves to snuggle him and is always making sure he's got his binky. I just love seeing her interact with him. It's precious.
Since Kade was born, I finally feel like myself again. I feel like the weight of the world has been lifted off of my shoulders. It's no secret that the past nine months have been extremely difficult and anxiety ridden, but seeing this precious little man in the delivery room made it all worth it.
Having Kade home has made me think of Harper. It has really made me realize all of the wonderful things I missed experiencing with her. The precious cries, the sleepless nights, snuggling, looking into his eyes. I cherish every moment.
Though Kade has most certainly not replaced my little Harper, the pain has been eased a bit by holding this sweet baby in my arms.
I'm so grateful for my two wonderful children at home and my baby girl in Heaven watching over our family.
Here's some pics of life at home with my little stud. I think he's quite darling, but hey, I'm the mom!

It's no secret that this has been the most stressful pregnancy ever for Kelsey! After losing Harper a year ago, there was always that thought in the back of our minds that we could lose this little guy as well.
Obviously, we didn't lose him, but he came four weeks early and is currently in the NICU getting some help breathing.
Here are some picts...

Each year during the third week in January we head up to Snowbird for a family vacation. While there we swim, ski, and spend many hours of lounging around the condo.
Greg and Liv went skiing a few times and she is getting really good. Here is a video of her and Greg on Chickadee. This year she started skiing along side Greg instead of being in between his legs.
Here is a video of Liv skiing all by herself on the bunny hill. She is an animal!
Here are some pictures of our trip as well.
This is Liv and Maddie snuggling in bed watching Monsters Inc.
As you can see, Liv is pretty excited to head out skiing for the first time this season.
