Isabellas Blessing!

The day was great! All of our families and friends came to support us on this special day! There was only one thing that didn't happen and thats a family picture with Tom in it. The girls were playing downstairs with Grandma Halling and I went down to catch a few pics and we ended up taking some of me and the girls. I yelled up to Tom to come get a picture but he was running behind getting ready. I said its ok will do it later, yeah about that it never happened! Sorry babe! We Love You:))
Tom did an amazing job on her blessing. I just love my little family!

There are going to be one too many Tea Parties with these cousins:)
It happened again 5 years later I got the girl and they got the boys! I love you girls! Your boys better be nice to my Izzie:)

This nurse was seriously so sweet and so fun with Brindley and Londyn. She wanted to give Isabella her bath so then they could help. The girls were in bath heaven! They are seriously the biggest help with every bath sometimes a little too much help:) Love my girls!
All of us enjoing our new little one!
I remember thinking and feeling so much joy for 3 beauitful healthy girls. I am so grateful that I can have kids and that they are healthy. Brindley Londyn and Isabella I just want you to know that I love you more than life itself, you have helped me know who I am and I love it! I want you to know that your Heavenly Father loves you too and your his little angels. This world is a crazy world and I want to teach you everything I can to help you understand his wonderful plan for you.

Isabella Nicole Swenson

What a way to start off blogging again by introducing little Izzie to our family. Isabella was born September 2, 2011. She was a healthy happy baby. I enjoyed 2 days in a very quite hospital bed holding her ALL day long! No matter how many babys you have you forget how sweet and precious newborn babies are. We came home on a Sunday afternoon to 2 VERY excited big sisters that couldn't get enough of her and still can't to this day! Izzie is the BEST baby. She eats and then sleeps! I love her so much its rediculous! I thought that through my pregancie with her I was done for sure but Im not so sure anymore, I still might have to try for that boy but don't hold your breath it's going to be awhile:)
Heading home from the hospital! Love those sweet cheeks!
Isabellas very first bath at home. The only of many things that I am weird about is I buy a new bath tub for each of my babies (I know Im crazy). So when it came time for her first bath I went to get the tub and realized I forgot to buy one! Oops! So Izzies first bath was in Mom and Dads bathroom sink!
SERIOULSY can't get enough!
LOVE HER!! She loves loves loves her little fist! Whenever she isn't eating she is doing this.
There are no words!
Love those CHEEKS!!
Izzie you are a great addition to our family sweetie and can't believe we got so lucky to have you! Love Mom:)

So happy to be back!

Im so sad that I have let this part of my life go! I love blogging and looking back on the things my family and I do and go through! I can't believe that it has been almost a year since my last post! Its overwleming to try and post everything that happened over the last year so Im not going to. Im starting FRESH!! So as soon as I can get my camera not to be stubborn I am going to upload a few pics and say a few things about the big events that happened in 2011!

What a WEEK!

It has actually been a long couple of weeks! Tom and the girls have had the worst sinus infections/ear infections. I have been SO lucky (knock on wood) to stay healthy! Someone has to be right? Tom said that he hasen't had an ear infection since he was a kid, I felt so sorry for him. I also have realized how much help he is to me when he is home. EVERY weekend he lets me sleep tell 10 or so, he gets the girls ready for church on sunday besides the hair and SO much more, but since he has been under the weather I have had to do it all and let me tell you Im very TIRED!!!!
Londyn has been extra cranky because of her ear infections in both ears:(, this is her first time having them and also her first time being on meds! I really don't like putting her on them, but it helps so I do it!
I'm more than grateful that once in awhile my kids get sick because it makes me sooooo much grateful when they're they're happy, silly, giggly self!
Just like everyone else we are SO ready for SPRING!!

On a very exciting note my little LOLO turns 2 on sunday! Time flys! I swear she was just snuggling in my arms and eating every 2 hrs! I have loved this last year. She is a very entertaining 2 year old. Ill do a special Londyn post next week after her birthday:)

Nap/Quite Time

Over the past year and half Brindley has stopped taking naps. At first it was the worst thing ever just because every mom needs a few hrs a day for herself. So I told her that she needed to have quite time for atleast an hr in her room. She can read books play with her dolls or watch a movie just as long as she stays in her room. Londyn has always enjoyed her sleep and I really hope that lasts.
So one day when I was cleaning up lunch I told the girls they had a few mintues to play before quite time.
This is what I saw about 10 mins later

Brindley wanted her to take her nap like this! I told her we would try it! Yea that lasted about 2 mintues but Brindley liked that I let her try!

I love these girls sooooo much! I am going to be so sad and lonely when they aren't with me all day. I just have to LOVE each and everyday that they want me by there side all the time!
