Yesterday we started our morning with church. Briton slept through 2 hrs on a rocking chair in nursery, it was adorable. We then went to Park City and got Holland a new snowsuit, like Brooklyn, she too had a growth spurt. We tried going skiing on Saturday and noticed that her pants hit just below her knee caps and the sleeves on her coat touched the top of her gloves. We then met up with our friends from Florida, well be coming back up this week for some slumber parties. And I can’t wait. Lets make this new week a great one!

I’d be blind if I didn’t recognize the hand of God that has been so visible in our lives the last couple weeks. What seemed like awful timing when Hudsons appendix got removed and just about burst, turned out to be such a blessing. All week I would just stop, pause and think about the what ifs and different scenarios it could have happened in. On the plane, in a foreign country, any place but at home would have been a scarier, different experience.
Without hesitation I canceled our Cancun trip. But rescheduled when Hudson’s dr. gave him the green light to go and some antibiotics to take with just in case.
So we went.
I saw miracles all week as his recovery went more than smoothly. We appreciated each other a little more on our trip making our time together that more special and a better experience.
Feeling especially grateful this Sunday for my family and for God watching out for my sweet children. I pray for that on the daily and will continue to do so for the remainder of my life. Because Lord knows I can’t do this job on my own.
We started out in the trampoline area where we took a course on how to roll on our shoulders and how to do flips. We played in the pits and trampolines and then we went upstairs and took parcourse lessons.
Downstairs we went to the skate/scooter/bike parks where we were taught how to. I loved that they were actually teaching my children new skills. I also loved watching papa bird (dallin) in his element.
Outside we did the “wreck-tangle” the American Ninja Warrior course and had a blast.
Coming soon is indoor ski and snowboarding – looks like we need to come back for that 🙂
It really was such a fun time and great activity for the whole family.
One of our favorite days on our vacation was swimming with the dolphins. We stayed at the Hard Rock Riviera Maya and used our hotel credits and applied it to our excursion. With every night you stay you get hotel credits that you can use towards amazing experiences, or at the spa. You just have to pay 20%, transportation & for pictures (optional)
Its a wonderful affordable way to experience amazing opportunities.
This is our 3rd location doing the dolphin experience, but this was our favorite. We all boogie boarded with the dolphins and spent the afternoon playing and swimming along side her.
I highly recommend doing this experience if you ever are in Cancun.
Two of my favorite things in the entire world are:
- dating my husband
I look forward to date night all week which is always a dilemma, as it gets in the way of my second love – breastfeeding.
8 months on from having Brooklyn I have decided to recently start leaving him behind with a sitter along with his favorite bottle to soothe him to sleep. We went with the new Philips Avent Anti-colic bottle with AirFree vent which is designed to reduce feeding issues,
colic, gas and reflux. The fun new spoon looking feature in the bottle helps keep the nipple full of milk (not air) and even when held horizontally, the nipple is kept full of milk, supporting upright feeding. Which, as we can clearly see in the photos, is how baby “B” prefers to drink himself to sleep. He takes a deep sigh and sweetly drifts off to sleep.
The best part is that he will stay asleep after he feeds because the way the bottle is designed makes sure there are no gas bubbles in the nipple. And because of this, there is less having to burp and wake the sleeping baby. This is huge for us because Brooklyn is by far our lightest sleeper.
We have been an family for years, I know baby bottles are not a one-size-fits-all solution, but it seems like this brand has just been growing and expanding their product lines based off our growing family needs. It seems like just yesterday I was using Philips Avent bottles to help me ween Briton from nursing at 18 months. And we were using them when I would pump for my tongue tied daughter who couldn’t get a latch from my breasts. (see post here)
Philips Avent bottles have been around for a long time now, but they are an innovative company that keeps improving their bottles to accommodate changing needs of moms and in line with emerging research. My kids have all had no problems latching on the bottles. The reasonably wide nipple base promotes a relatively real breast feel along with very soft plastic nipples.

Once upon a time there were four little Rabbits, and their names were – Flopsy, Mopsy, Cotton-tail, and Peter.
Never did two quotes describe my children more. I love these quotes from Peter Rabbit.
