Smiling Baby

Elijah really loves his big brother and sister. I can never get him to smile at me but Luke manages it almost all the time. We caught it on video this morning while playing in my and Paul's bed.

Well Eli is offically my easiest baby. He sleeps the night almost every night, and when he doesn't he only wakes up once. He likes to just sit and watch everyone else while sitting on his boppy (Luke loved that too if I remember). He also loves to nurse - something neither of the other too even tolerated.

Thanks Eli for being so easy for me. I needed an easy baby.

He's cute so here's some pictures(thanks esther for taking the good ones). Also, some videos of the kids meeting him and right after he was born.


Liliana is probably the funniest person in our family. I swear she has 100 different facial expressions. I try to catch them on camera but it's rare. At the moment she is sitting reading a book and shouting "HOLY COW" at the top of her lungs. No idea what is so amazing but hey she's reading.
 Lily also LOVES to dance. She does it all the time, in the car, in the hallway and at home. She also likes to perform so here's a video to match.

Lily also Loves to tease Luke. I swear most of the time she just bugs him to pieces and then giggles (evily of course). One of these days she's going to get it from him. Mind he teases her just as much. It reminds me of that talk from Elder Holland talking about bedlamities. yep.. they're bot bedlamities.  Here's some cute pics of them both.

This video is from earlier in the month - the kids are playing in the snow and throwing snow balls at our cat Padme. Enjoy!

Fun in DC

Washington D.C .has been a lot of fun for our family. It's really nice to be so close to so many tourist-y attractions. We live about 5 miles from downtown and about a 20 metro ride (forget about driving, seriously it'll take you an hour) to the national mall. The kids have had fun looking at the museums Luke especially enjoys the the Air and Space Museum in Virgina, it has his favourite fighter jet the SR-71 Blackbird - he was SO excited, we took several pictures (posted on the bottom). We all enjoy the Natural History Museum, Liliana is a little young still but she tries.
     D.C. is great because all of these sites are free, meaning we can go whenever and for short periods of time. We don't feel like we have to make a day out of it everytime and with 3 kids this is a blessing. The kids enjoy the metro ride so much that sometimes I think we should just spend the day riding it around the city and just pay the $1 or whatever it is to get into the station :)
     We also managed to finally get out to Gettysburg a few weeks ago. I really enjoyed seeing the civil war museum and battlefields. The kids weren't as impressed :) I was a little weirded out about how small the hills really are (maybe too much time in the mountains?) especailly since the history books talk so much about hte Union forces having a advantage because of the hill - what hill?? It was a good experience and again a perk of living on the east(ish) coast.

I hope to get some pictures up of these things but they're on Pauls phone so it'll have to wait until he can get them to me.
