This little love is Maddie.  Last year she had an accident and fell off a wheelchair ramp and received a major brain injury. She was placed in a medically induced coma so that her brain could heal. It's been a year since the accident and Maddie has just started to talk to her mom about what happened during those three days. It's been pretty amazing, humbling  and faith provoking to hear. I don't want to share too much about this tender experience but Maddie got to spend some time with Lila. She said that Lila  couldn't stop hugging her and that she wanted to ask her all about her mom. (Melt my heart!) It's been fun to picture our girl hugging, chatting and being such a great comforter to others  in the next life. 
If only i could spend a few days with her. ....

Fun with cousins

Eight months.

It's getting harder and harder to get this kid to sit long enough for a picture. 

Such a happy, quick to smile boy

Front teeth

I spy a front tooth coming in. 

Our daddy.

We are so lucky to have this amazing guy as our daddy. He gives so much love and is super fun. We always have a dance party when daddy comes home! 
Thanks Quinn for all you do 

Father's Day!

Happy Father's Day to my dad!! 
Love you 

Girl chat.

The other morning I caught Ruby chatting with Lila in the garden. By the time I got out my phone to record the sweet exchange she was just thanking her sister for sending her a tulip solar light.

Ruby and daddy have been walking to church together. (Look how adorable she looks with her owl backpack!) this week as they were walking to church Ruby told daddy to walk in the gutter (we don't have sidewalks in our neighborhood) so that she could protect him. Quinn said if your protecting me who is protecting you? Immediately Ruby said "Lila protects me" 
Heart melting. 

Swimming swimming swimming.


Utah is so beautiful. It's a great place to be

It's that time of year

Every year I wonder if it's worth it to get the pool up and running. It's expensive and frustrating. But then that first day comes and we get in the pool and I realize how many wonderful memories that we are going to have here. In honor of Lila. 

Look how cute this boy is in his little swim suit!! 

Cousins came to help ring in the season 

Grandpa and Eddie 

All three

When I was pregnant with lila Quinn and I went to Hawaii and got this hi life onesie  for her. All three babies have worn it now.

Tiny dancer

So crazy to see Ruby wearing my old dance costumes. 

Getting our nails done.

The ladies went to get summer nails for my birthday. Ruby was in heaven! She sat so still and took it very seriously. 

She was chatting with the ladies 

I just started to laugh when I saw her sit down and start thumbing through a magazine. Threenager.
