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.
