Wonderful Two's

Age 2
Woke Andrew up from his nap 3 times (door doesn't latch)
Cracked 4 eggs on the kitchen floor on two different occasions (he found the eggs I hid)
Put a soggy Frosted Mini Wheat into a full gallon of milk
He made Tanner seem like an angel today
Tomorrow will be better
Good thing his smile makes me melt

We have been busy, but loving the warmer weather. It has been close to 50 degrees and sunny for the last week. I can't believe it is almost the end of January. It has been so nice this winter so far for all of us to stay pretty healthy, especially with a new baby.

Aubree has been into doing her hair lately. She did her hair with a side pony and a bow when we went to watch Eric's brother wrestle. The pic above is Aubs and Tann with Grandma Nygard. Aubree asks me to do my hair everyday. I can't wait till she really can do it. :)
The kids before church.

Trav has been in the need of a haircut.
Aubree posing for a picture.
Aubree LOVES her Dad. Whenever he leaves for school she has to give him tons of hugs and kisses. After we visited him at school the other day, we were back home getting ready for bed and Aubree came up to me and said, "I love my Dad soooo much."
The kids favorite part of the day.
Trav in Aubree's baby car seat. Last night we brought Eric some dinner at school so the kids could see him. Anyways, we got there and went into the building to find Eric. Before I made it to the elevator, Trav had gone into the elevator and the doors had closed. He kept pressing the alarm button, but I couldn't get to him. Eric found us and we split up trying to find him. It was pretty scary. We ended up finding him in the basement. I need to get a leash for him. He is getting better at staying with me, but it is still difficult when I don't use a stroller.
Travis loved his smoothie. I love his smile!
Tanner got himself out of the bath the other day with Andrew's bathrobe. I don't know how he fit into it. Oh, every morning Tanner loves to have oatmeal. Instead of calling it oatmeal, he calls it ointmeal. Eric, Aubs, and I have a good laugh.
Lately, Trav has been spending a lot of time putting stickers on himself. He entertains himself for a long time this way.
Trav after his haircut with a smile on his face, because he is wearing a backpack. He thought he was pretty cool.
Sweet Andrew. I love this boy! He getting more smiley and giggly. He is such a sweet boy!
I was having a hard time cutting Trav's hair. I liked it long. This was the last pic I took before I cut it. This boy is hitting his terrible two's running. Good thing he is cute!

3 Months!

I can't believe our sweet, little Andrew turns 3 months old today. He is such a great baby. He fits into our family so well. I am grateful to be able to be his Mom. He has the cutest big lips and I love his chubby cheeks. He is such an easy going baby and each one of his siblings loves him so much!

This video is from when I went to work out and Eric bathed the kids and got them ready for bed. (WARNING: Poop is involved) ps. listen to the commentary in the background at the end from the kids

Merry Christmas & Happy New Year

It has been crazy with visiting family, the holidays, and with Eric being out of school. We had a great break, but we were ready to be back at our house. Eric started school Monday, as well as Aubree started preschool. It is kind of a pain to get the boys in and out of the car at 8 and at 11, but Aubs loves it. We were in Wenatchee for Christmas. The picture of above is the kids in their Christmas Jammies. Love it!
Tanner wanted to wear the stockings rather than hang them up. On a side note, when we were taking something to Eric at school yesterday, Tanner pointed to the school and said that is where Dad lives.
We attempted to have the kids act out the story of the Nativity. I don't know who Aubree or Tanner ended up being. I don't know why Tanner has his shirt off.
Andrew was Baby Jesus and Carly was Mary.
We had all the Nygard grandkids together for about an hour and we were able to get a couple pics (10 kids under 4). I love how sweet Aubree is with Andrew.
We celebrated Mary's (my sister) birthday while we were home. Just FYI, Mary got accepted to the Utah Dental Hygiene Program. She is awesome!
Aubree loves her cousins!
Oh Andrew! He is such a sweet boy. He is smiling all of the time and has even started to giggle. He is almost going 12 hours at night now and he naps great. I love how he is becoming more interactive. We are so grateful for Andrew. We should get to have him sealed to us this month.
Love him!
Tanner opening his presents on Christmas morning.
Trav opening his.
Aubree with her favorite gift from Santa.
These two wanted another picture taken of them. Tanner really misses Aubree being gone in the mornings.
Another PJ's pic.
Aubree's attempt at entertaining Andrew. She thought he would enjoy playing with her laptop.
This is Aubree's second morning of Preschool. I wasn't able to get a picture the first day because it was too chaotic. I love that Tanner is wearing Aubs boots.
Travis eating his cousin's birthday cake. Trav said farewell to his binky over the break. It was harder on me than it was on him.
This is the best picture I got of the boys in their Christmas sweaters.
This was the trap Aubree set up to catch Santa.
I need to start posting more video. This is from Trav's birthday party. I will post the one soon of when Trav pooped on the kitchen floor while Eric was home with the kids.
