I know I stink at this! It has been super crazy at the Lott house. I know its not much but we are all doing great. I just don't have much time to really get into it! Love you all and will post again soon with better updates!

Just a Quick Update!

So, I really find it hard to find time to post anything lately... It's 3:00 in the morning and I can't sleep so this is a good time! Brody is getting so big! Its crazy! He is trying so hard to talk! His attempts at sentences are so funny. Some of his common spoken words consist of Mommy, Dada, monkey, cookie, cracker and ba ba and many more (just can't think of them all). It's really cool to see how little kids start to associate words with the actually item. I couldn't find his shoes the other day so Spencer asked him where they were and Brody took Spencer to his laundry hamper. Spencer was a little confused the he looked in and there they were! He knew what they were and where he put them! I sure am one proud mommy!

And can't forget my Little Olive! She is so precious! She is still really little, 5 months old and just over 12 lbs! Yes, I do feed her. Her pediatrician says she is growing on her curve so she is just fine! The poor girl's head is just so big to her body she really can't hold it straight up for a long period of time. It really is fun to just watch her grow, slowly but surely! I did see the other day that she found her toes!

As for Spencer and I, nothing too exciting. Spencer is just finding his niche at his job and is really starting to love it (I think). I am still watching my niece during the week, but only to the end of October. I sure will miss her. I am just finishing up with my softball I have played this fall. Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays... Never doing that again! My life has just been crazy! But I sure did love it! Hopefully I won't wait so long for my next post.... Love y'all!

My Niece...

I found this picture of my niece, Alexa, on my sisters facebook and I had to show everyone how darn cute she is. She is two and a half and is full of personality! She calls me Caca! She loves to play with all her little cousins and is so sweet with all of them. Mandy, you really do have an angel! We sure love her!

Our little Brody has been cutting teeth this week (again). Can I just tell you, we are miserable parents! No sleep and no way to really help the little guy. Lots of slobber! We had about three nights where he was in so much pain he couldn't even fall asleep, he just crawled all over me and cried for literally two hours! It all started on Sunday with a fever and got worse from there. Friday was the first day that he went down for his afternoon nap without screaming himself to sleep. For all those parents who have babies without their canines.... they are by far the worst! Its rough for a while, but the pain does go away eventually. And on top of it all there is a lot of Mommy-Baby cuddly time!! Oh, and another secret... I used lavender oil to rub his feet with. It is supposed to help relax them when they don't know what else to do and it really worked great!

Oh! Brody

Spencer and I had to wake up Brody so we could take Spencer to work the other day. This is how we found Brody....

I wonder if he had a sore neck that day?

My Best Friends...

So, I decided that my new best friends are those I see and talk to every day... And they are all under two! I stay home with my two babies Brody and Liv, and watch my niece Jordyn everyday. I talk to them like they understand me. Sometimes Brody really helps me out with my drama. They are all great listeners! I can't wait until my kids can actually talk back with me! Well, sort of....

My sweet little Brody was sick last night! I hope it is just a 24 hour flu. He woke up at about 1 am. Spencer and I were still awake so we got him out of bed and sat him on the couch with us. It was so funny because he was just sitting there staring into the dark and was sitting as straight as a board (great posture!). So we took a few snap shots of him. Brody, I hope you feel better soon little guy! We love you!

Our Trip to Hollywood, CA!

So Spencer and I went on a trip to Hollywood to go see the great Mariah Carey preform on the Jimmy Kimmel Live show! We were only there for a short time but we had a blast! I made sure I found Tom Cruise's star because I love him and so funny I ran into a homeless guy I saw on Keeping up with the Kardashian's. He was sweet and took a pic with me! I love CA and can't wait for another vacation there in the future. My only beef I have with the trip is I couldn't take a camera to in to see Mariah. But let me tell you she is definitely one beautiful woman! I love you for going with me Spence, thanks for all the fun we had!

Lions, Tigers and Bears.... Oh My!

We took our first family trip to the zoo last week! It was great! I thought Brody may have been a little too young to really enjoy it but boy did he surprise me! He loved all the animals and made his best attempt to sound like them! The best part was when we walked past a little bunny and he just got right up to the window and started freaking out. He loved it, he was so excited to see it right at his level!

Something Spencer and I have joked about is that our little one, Olivia, looks just like a baby orangutan. I took a picture of one at the zoo and I have to say, I think I was right!

We had a lot of fun with my dad, sisters and brother. We love you guys!

Last weeks adventures!

After all the Fourth of July fun last weekend it was time to return to our normal schedules. But Brody didn't seem to want the fun to stop. I think he just played for hours when he finally had it and fell asleep. I found him sleeping in the most random places! In the first picture here he had just woke up from falling asleep in his toys... it was so cute. Then the next day I was making his lunch and came back to him sleeping in his high chair. I stay so entertained with this boy.

Olivia is getting so big! Well I guess not so big just bigger than she was :). At her two month appointment this week she is only in the 5% category. She weighs about 9 lbs 10 oz. She is really starting to notice all of her surroundings and loves to be sang to. She makes the cutest sounds when you sing to her!

Brody just loves his sister! We got a new jogging stroller that fits both kids. We decided to test it out on Friday night and as soon as both of them were in there Brody just wanted to hold Liv's hand and kiss her on her forehead (his kisses are so funny, open mouth and tongue out). She just cried... Brody bugged her and I think she is a little too small to fit correctly. It will be nice when she does fit!

Spencer is working his butt off and I just stay at home with the babies. So it's nice when we all get to spend time together. After our walk on Friday night I got the most precious picture of Brody and Spence. I just about lost it when I saw them walking in the sunset holding hands. My boys are the greatest. I love those tender moments! Hope this next week is as exciting as the last!

Olivia's Blessing Day!

Today was so great! Spencer had the honor of blessing our second baby, Olivia. It was such a tender moment to see daddy holding his little girl in his arms and giving her a blessing from our Heavenly Father. I am so grateful to have a husband who takes his priesthood seriously and loves his Savior so much to be able to influence our children in such a positive way! The spirit in our home has really changed with the addition of Olivia. There definitely is something special about her! The experience today was perfect. Thanks Spencer, we love you! :)

4th of July with the Lotts

We had a fun day yesterday celebrating the 4th. We started out by going swimming in our pool, then had a great BBQ at grandma and grandpa Lott's house, and ended the day with fireworks at Thanksgiving point. Brody loved the fireworks. We had a fun day!!

The Kids

A few weeks ago we got Kiddie Kandids taken. We did it for Olivia's baby announcements, but were also able to stick Brody in there for a cute brother and sister picture.
