It has taken forever to get caught up and post pictures because something new is constantly happening. The biggest change is that we sold our house at 862 Jessie Ave!
It was exciting and sad at the same time. We lived there for just over 4 years and it was the only home both of our children knew. We knew it was what was supposed to happen, as it was the very day that we first met with a builder to build a new house that we got the offer. So, we are now living in my parent’s basement (thank Heaven for supportive family!) while we build a new house on Hawthorne Rd (.9 of a mile north of my parents) in Chubbuck.
We had so much help throughout the moving process. In these pictures, Dillon’s mom had come to help pack and watch the kids and she was multi-tasking. The kids sat in this box for probably at least an hour.
Alyona took these adorable pictures of Sam at 9 months:
Sam’s 9 month check-up was right before we moved. He was 18lbs 12oz which puts him all the way up to the 21st percentile. He started in the 75th range and went all the way down to the 15%, so we were happy he was on his way back up. He was 28 3/4 inches long which puts him at the 67%.
Sam is a pretty good sleeper. He goes in stages, but we will occasionally get a night that he sleeps all night. Usually he gets up once a night to eat and goes back to bed.

He has 5 teeth now at 10 months. He first got his two middle bottom teeth at 8 months then the top two side teeth came in. Everyone calls them his vampire teeth. If you look closely in this picture Alyona took, you can see one of his vampire teeth. The top middle are starting to come in which will help balance them out!
He is getting more mobile. He has been scooting around for a while, whether it be on his belly or on his bottom. He gets himself into some tough places once in a while. He has just started crawling at 9 1/2 months. Here is a video of his funny little army crawl:
More adorable pictures from Alyona. Lucy is 3 1/2 in these pictures.
This is kinda hard to see, but it is a picture Lucy drew of Sam. I helped with the S, as she had not yet practiced that letter, but she did the rest unaided.
Lucy loves make-up, make-believe, and most of all, technology. She has her own laptop, one that we upgraded from, and she can run it completely by herself. She can get on and find games, watch movies, and type.
Lucy and Sam are the best of friends. They light up when they see each other. Lucy is always a great helper.
Both of my kids LOVE LOVE LOVE the bath!
