Baby Tessa

As Luke says, "Baby Tessa is CUTE!" 
She is also so sweet and now her smiles melt our hearts. 
She is getting some cuddly chub on her and grunts 
like an old man.  
Oh how we love her.

The Lukester

Lukey cracks us up.  He wants to be a big boy, loves doing puzzles, 
and does a fantastic fast dance.  He has a constant drool stream and 
puts EVERYTHING in his mouth (even broken glass).  
He is one cool kid.

Sammy Boy

He is becoming so helpful and thoughtful.  But knows how to push Lukey's buttons. 
He loves Hide and Seek and anything "a little bit scary".  
We love our sweet Sam.

My Dress, My Baby

Here are pictures of us both in the same dress.  
I love that my mom saved this dress for Tessa.  
Crazy to see how different we look.  

Look at that cute belly!

Too much fun

My parents stayed with us a whole month to help with 3 kiddos while Ryan went back to school.  Their help was priceless as I was able to sleep in while they fed the boys breakfast and got them ready for the day.   Below are some pics of things they did with the boys while I spent time with Tessa.  I think they went to Chuck E Cheese about 4-5 times!  Plus, they probably read them a million books and put the fishy puzzle together 500,000 times.  They were ADORED!

Off to Church; My mom even taught my Primary Class for me! 

 We had so much fun with them.  We got to celebrate 4 birthdays together 
(Pop Pop, Tessa, Luke and Mimzy).   We celebrated their last day here and Mimzy's birthday by going to a play  Skippy Jon Jones and eating at The Cove.

Baby Blessing

 We had Tessa's baby blessing in our home on Jan 25th.  Of course my Mom and Dad, Bran and Claire were there.  Bishop Hagey and his wife and our friends from the Baylor program came (Chiquituctos, Niesses, and Sam) came too.  It was very special.  Tessa wore an heirloom as my Mom, McKay and I have worn it.  She was the 3rd generation to wear it.

Claire captured some sweet poses and faces of our little girl getting ready for her big day.

Falling in love

Lukey turns 2!

Luke is excellent at saying, "I two year old!" and holding up 2 fingers.  He is so proud.  We went to the Kiddie Park, a 1940's amusement park, the day before.  He rode every ride and loved it.  
He is still obsessed with Elmo and prays for him, Grover, and the Count every night.  He also insists that you pray for them too.
