Milestones...

In this last week, my two babies hit milestones...

Dallin turned three!!
I can't believe I have a three year old. I know I'm going to be saying this every birthday with him... But I really can't believe it! He really is one of my best friends- since I talk to him all day every day. He makes Jeff and I laugh constantly with the funny things he comes up with. He's so sweet- always saying thank you, or no thank you... making sure I'm always ok... seeing to it that everyone has some of whatever we're having (he's a great sharer)... giving Allison constant kisses... giving the best hugs... He is such a character and has such a fun, crazy personality! He's our smart, wonderful, charming little boy- with stunning blue eyes... :)

For his birthday this year he really wanted a "Handy Manny" birthday party:
We tried... :)
By the time it was time for the party- I hadn't gotten hardly anything done that I had wanted to (I'm still getting used to balancing my time management with a 3 year old and a nursing baby), and the little toppers that I had ordered for the cupcakes hadn't come in the mail yet...
But of course Dallin didn't care. :) All of mommy's stressing was not needed. He had a fun time with his friends and our neighbors, and loved his Handy Manny play sets his mom scored off eBay. :)

All of the kids were able to take these home too:

He had a great birthday! (Or at least he keeps telling me so :)

The second Milestone:
Allison turned one month!!
She's doing so well! She's was up to 8 lbs last week (She's growing so much faster than Dallin did) and is a strong little thing! We sort of new that at the beginning though- When we took her back to the hospital after she was born for help with nursing, the nurse put her on her tummy on the hospital bed, and she started scooting across the table! She's been holding up her head completely on her own for a couple weeks now, and she loves to look all around. I love it when I have her facing out against my chest, and look down to find her looking up at me. One of her favorite things is her tounge. She has such a long one!! And today- she's starting to smile!! She's growing up so fast! We love our sweet girl!

(I decided to take her picture with this little bunny every month to see how she grows. :)
