hellos & goodbyes


we had a fun week with family. bri bri & adi + emery & sage came to visit from vegas. sage is just five and a half weeks younger than haven, so this was their first chance to meet (read: first chance for the mommies to take pictures of them together). although they're just itty bittys and have no idea what's going on, it's fun to think ahead and know they'll be play buds. sage was blessed on sunday and looked so cute in her little white dress. and i made my best batch of cake bites to date-strawberry and chocolate!-pictures to come (?).
















grandma debbi took everyone to thanksgiving point to the discovery farm and noah's ark. the kids had a blast. riding the pony was by far nash's favorite part. {more pictures here.} nash is now 21 months old. he's such a character-one of a kind. he's been such a good helper with haven and loves her to death. his laughter is contagious and he loves to put on a show for anyone and everyone who will watch (especially strangers).


haven went swimming for the first time. {more pictures here.} she's now three months old and i can hardly believe how the time is flying. i swear nash didn't grow this fast. she's been a great baby so far, sleeping well and is generally happy despite colds, thrush and g.e.r.d. now that all that's under control she's getting happier and can focus on getting stronger and smarter! she's slept through the night several times at random, and the past two nights has slept at least eight hours straight. she loves the jumperoo and smiles at the little animals on it. i'd almost forgotten when nash used to do that. it's fun to remember nash as a baby because of the similarities between the two.

finally, we had a goodbye party for beeta & jp. they're moving to oregon tomorrow for work. we're sad they're leaving. they're both so great with the kids. nash adores beeta and loves to jump into the pool with her. we're proud of them for moving on and know it will be good for them, but we can't help but be a little sad...
