So, I was sitting here in the chair reading while Judah was laying on the blanket on the floor. I looked down and this is where he was.... I'm not quite sure how it happened....did he roll over??? I wasn't really aware that 11 week old babies could scoot across the floor like that :) Oh Judah :)

June 17, 2010-Evie 22 months!

Today Evelyn is 22 months old; wow she is almost 2! Here she is enjoying a little afternoon snack on Daddy's lap :) Ev continues to be a joy to us, filling our home with the sound of little girl giggles and chatter. She is now saying around 20 different words and they are sounding more clear everyday. Evie is a wonderful big sister. Lately she has been showing true concern for Judah when he cries. She will go up to him and say, "Judah, Judah" and try to give him his pacifier or his blanket to make him feel better :) There is never a boring moment with this little girl.

In about a little over an hour we have to take Bekah to the airport :( She has been here for 3 1/2 fun-filled weeks! We (especially Evie) will miss her a lot, but we know that she needs to get back to her regular life in MN. Hopefully she will be able to come again for an extended visit in August :) Love you Bek, and thanks for all of the help and good times!!

The finished project! Over the last couple of weeks I have been working on organizing the kids' room, going through/sorting all of their clothes. I took a bunch of stuff to Goodwill; it's always a good feeling to declutter and get rid of what we don't want/need. It was quite the process.
Now the clothes are neatly organized by size/gender.
Look at all the empty space we have now!
In the process Evie found these boots which will someday be for Judah. She has decided that it is fun to wear them around the house all day. I keep hearing, "boot boot boot." The boots originally belonged to Evie's friend Benjamin Johnson, but he no longer has need for them since moving to Arizona last week.

*Side Note* Happy Birthday Mom/Grandma Borg!! We love you and are thankful for you :)

Judah -Two Months

Today our little boy is two months old! He is such a delight to us and we love having him as a part of our family. He is a very good baby and only really cries if he is hungry or overtired. Currently he is almost rolling over and sleeps for one 6 1/2 hour stretch consistently at night. He smiles and coos quite a bit and loves to be held and snuggled. Judah loves to eat and weighs in at about 13 pounds :)

Monday-Homemade pizza (favorite crust recipe) spinach salad

Tuesday- Chicken Enchiladas, tortilla chips, salad

Wednesday- Oriental Chicken Salad

Thursday- Spicy Peach-Glazed Pork Chops, rice and corn

Friday- Pecan Crusted Chicken Salad

Saturday- Sweet and Sour Chicken, rice and salad

Ev wanted to read a book to Judah :) Wow Judah is catching up quickly in size. Currently he is close to 13 pounds and Ev is around 22.
Daddy's little helper! We had some plumbing issues today, but no worries Kyle and Evie fixed them.
***Editorial Note (this is Kyle): "Some" plumbing issues is a bit of an understatement. The hose connecting the copper piping to the main faucet in the kitchen fell off and water was uncontrollably spraying everywhere, flooding both the kitchen and then through the floor boards and the basement. Husbands, make a note, be sure your wife knows where the shut-off valve is.***

Here are some pics from our Sunday evening after church. Baby Judah :)
I love her!
Evie has been much more affectionate toward Huckie lately.
Helping Daddy make popcorn for dinner.
Evie's first time eating popcorn like a big girl using her own bowl. This is a big deal in our house :)
