Does this fit me???

You Are An ENFP

The Inspirer

You love being around people, and you are deeply committed to your friends.
You are also unconventional, irreverent, and unimpressed by authority and rules.
Incredibly perceptive, you can usually sense if someone has hidden motives.
You use lots of colorful language and expressions. You're quite the storyteller!

In love, you are quite the charmer. And you are definitely willing to risk your heart.
You often don't follow through with your flirting or professed feelings. And you do break a lot of hearts.

At work, you are driven but not a workaholic. You just always seem to enjoy what you do.
You would make an excellent entrepreneur, politician, or journalist.

How you see yourself: compassionate, unselfish, and understanding

When other people don't get you, they see you as: gushy, emotional, and unfocused

Best commercial ever?

Check out the clip on my friend Laura's page titled "best commercial ever" I really do think it is one of the best! I promise, it's not a tearjerker Melissa!

Good times!

Last night we watched our friend Addy for a few hours. She and Lauren get along so well. Usually when Lauren is with a friend there is at least one fight to referee, but these two were great.
Addy came over with her jammies on so Lauren wanted hers on too. They shared their toys and played "Mommy/Daughter" for the longest time. They even played like they were pregnant. (Gee, I wonder why? Could it be because everyone around here is either pregnant or has had a baby in the last few months???)
I love girls. It made me excited for when Lauren gets to have sleepovers.

random pictures

Well, once again the pictures have piled up on my camera.
Here are just some random pictures.

Tummy time.... soooo tiring!

Happy jumper!

Big girl sitting up.

I'm trying to teach Kristen how to clap and this is what she does.

Jesus wants me for a sunbeam!

Today was Lauren's first Sunday as a Sunbeam! She did great. She was so brave and loved it.
Her teachers are Brother and Sister Orellana. They seem very sweet and friendly. I think they will be a perfect fit for Lauren.
I went to pick her up from her class after church and she came running...then she saw Logan standing next to me. No "Mommy!!! I'm so glad to see you", she yells "LOGAN!!!!" and gives him a huge hug. I see now who's more important!
Then later she informs me that her teachers name is Sister Orellana and then tells me "and guess what...she has a husband and his name is Orellana too! He has the same name!" She was amazed for some reason.
I'm so proud of my little sunbeam!

5 Months!

Where has the time gone??
Kristen went in for her well check today ( a month late!)
She got 4 shots and an oral vaccine. Poor baby! It bothered me when Lauren would cry during her shots but with Kristen it's torture!
She is officially a fatty,
90th% for head
75th% for height- 25 1/2"
97% for weight- 16 1/2
What a little chunker! I love her squishy thighs!

Happy New Year

Well we are back in AZ and getting settled. It sucks unpacking from 6 weeks away AND cleaning house at the same time. No fun!
Lauren is happy to be back and has already played with some friends, which she enjoyed a lot. Kristen seems content too, but then again when is she not? I swear she is the most mellow baby ever. My parents were just amazed by her chill attitude. She is eating cereal daily now and can't get enough. She starts wiggling and squirming whenever she sees the bowl. I can't wait to see what she thinks of other foods. Lauren was never excited about food so this is something new!

Cory and I have just been hanging out. We have enjoyed playing Guitar Hero and watching movies. I am becoming quite the rockstar let me tell you!
Here are a few pictures off of my new camera!
I'm still trying to figure it out.
We definitely needed a new camera after Lauren dropped our other one on the cement porch last year. It never quite worked the same after that!

funniest thing!

Kristen thinks that Lauren is the funniest thing ever!
When Kristen first started laughing all Lauren had to say was "tap shoes" and Kristen would gut roll. So funny!
