Guess who's walking??? Yup big man Jack decided to take his first step on April 7th, now he is up to 4 or 5 at a time! Then he gets down cause he realizes how much quicker crawling is! Jack is on the move, watch out! He also figured out how to turn around on the steps so he gets to play on them a little more often now! Less then 2 weeks till he turns the big 1!

Well I guess I can say it now, spring is here! I do believe the actual first day of spring was like 30 degrees, and we had some snow since then, but the weather has broke! The last few days have been close to 70 degrees, the kids are enjoying the outdoors (and mom) finally! We try to go for a walk each day if it isn't raining. The swingset is really getting a workout! They are on it every day! Daddy just filled up the sandbox so Ella can finally use the new shovel I bought her! She loves that sandbox!
Saturday was the kids' bowling party!! I can't say it went smooth, but they did have a blast! And that is what matters, right? When we got home daddy and I ripped out 5 overgrown shrubs and 3 not so hot looking trees from the backyard. Looks great! We just have 4 stumps left to dig out, wish us luck on that! We have a lot more room in the backyard, and big plans for it! Now to get the $ to go with those plans hehe!

Now I guess Ella doesn't believe me that it is warm out, cause she insisted she had to wear her scarf and hat, she is such a goofball! She went on the whole walk with them! She let me take them off when it was time to play though hehe!! And Jack, I've been trying to capture this smile forever!! And there it is!!!! And this is Cam at age 9, he got his favorite haircut and looked so cute in his new shirt, that I finally got an opportunity for some pictures! Now to talk the teenager into some...

Sometimes I don't think that Ella realizes Jack now weighs more then her. In fact she still asks me to hold him, or to put him on her lap. It is so sweet that she sometimes loves her baby brother. So here she is trying to hold big Jack on her lap, and then deciding she was going to take a turn on his lap next! Jack was cracking up when Ella sat on his lap, guess he was quite amused by his big little sister!

Well it is official, Jack is now 11 months old. In less then a month my baby will be 1, I can not believe it! So here are my 11 month old pics of Jack! And Ella wanted to wear her dress that I totally forgot to bring to Easter, so here is Ella's pretty Easter dress!

Tay is doing great on the pump. The specialist is amazing and is working closely with Tay. We call her everyday for adjustments, so far NO ketones, which is awesome, cause she was having such a rough time with them! Soon it will all be figured out! I'm loving how easy this pump thing is! We went to dinner the other day and I caught myself asking Tay if she had her insulin, log, test kit. Hey we don't need to bring all of that now! Just the test kit, wohoooo!! I guess I need some pics of Tay and her pump for a scrap page now, that is if she will let me hehe!

That hair! How in the world did Jack get that white blonde hair??? And those big blue eyes? I know it isn't a mix up, he never left my side at the hospital, that and he looks so much like my other kids, but aren't genetics funny? Mom with light brown hair, daddy with dark brown hair, both of us with brown eyes, then there is Jack, blonde hair, blue eyes. People always do a double take, look at me, then Jamie, then Jack, then me and Jamie again with a stumped look on their face!
Hair so light it sometimes is hard to get pictures of! The sun bouncing off it makes it disappear!

Oooh the dollhouse! The nicest lady at my moms work thought of us when she needed to find a good home for her dollhouse! Apparently they were cleaning house and it needed to go! It has always been a dream of mine to own a dollhouse, and I can't believe we get to do this for our little girl. Some of the electrical was done already, but Jamie added to it. Now to paint, wallpaper, carpet, shingle... just like a real house!!! Here are some pics of Ella playing with it, even before we did anything to it, and another of it painted. Jamie plans on putting the shingles on this week!
