One year ago...

One year ago today I was 9 months pregnant ready to burst. Ready to meet my baby boy. I went into labor one year ago today. And I held my beautiful Quinn one year ago on September 1st.

One year ago, I became a mother of two boys. Heaven only knew how much fun they would have together.

One year ago, Jude became a big brother. Ready or not.

One year ago, Nick became a wonderful father of two.

They make each other laugh so hard it hurts. No one can make Quinn laugh harder than Jude. They look out for each other. They Quinn already knows how to fend for himself and can throw quite a punch.

Quinn is our peacemaker. Our easy going, fun loving, social, happy, drooling and energetic one year old. Happy birthday my sweet boy. I can't wait to enjoy many more with you.

So a lot has happened in the last little while. We had a beautiful baby boy named Quinn and Jude loves having him around! They play really well together. Jude likes to help when Quinn starts crying by trying to make him laugh. He jumps around and then freezes making a face. His new one is coming up to Quinn and saying "Don't worry, it's just a bear" with his hands in a claw shape and then tickles him. It usually gets Quinn to calm down.

Nick graduated from BYU! We also made a pretty big move to Chicago and we are soaking it all in. Nick is working for an advertising agency named Leo Burnett and is really excited. The boys and I are happy that we have a park in our front yard. We are also excited to explore all the many things Chicago has to offer. Zoo's, Children's Museum's, live music in the parks, and a beach at the lake front! We miss friends and family, but are excited for our adventure. Now friends and family have a new place to come and visit:)

We have found a few fun indoor play places to play at while the weather is still a little chilly. We do still go to the parks around here though. Jude always is wanting to go down the slides and talks about them all day.

We have been making new friends and finding lots of nice people. There are lots of boys around Jude's age here so they like to run and play together.

Also Quinn has taken a liking to put his binky in his mouth like this:)
