Paityn and Miridyan were destined to come to Earth at the same time. They absolutely love each other already. Here they were both able to pull themselves up in Paityn's crib.
When one needs a bath, the other just can't resist play time in the tub. Our only challenge is making sure one doesn't hit or kick the other while splashing !!!
Besides loving each other, they love Grandma just as much. I am not sure what I would do without her. Paityn and Miridyan have no idea how blessed they are to have this wonderful woman as their very own Grandma.

Miridyan and I walked the Temple grounds while the ceremony took place. It was absolutely beautiful, as always. Miridyan loved all of the colorful flower beds and the water fountain. If she had her swimming suit on I am sure she would have jumped right in.
Congratulations Patrick & Maria !!!

Alright... so I love Bumbo seats. Miridyan does pretty well sitting in ours... now. When we first got it, I would sit her in it to feed her baby food and she would fall asleep every time. Well, recently I have been sitting her in it at one end of the shower while I take my shower. She loves to play in the water, so it works out really well for both of us. Anyhow... today was another story. She actually pooped in the bumbo chair while in the shower with me. I can change a dirty diaper, I have cleaned multiple bedspreads/sheets after she has peed on them, I don't even mind cleaning up spit-up, however... there is something wrong with having to clean up poop in places where it shouldn't be in the first place (that is the number one reason as to why I would never make a good nurse). Don't worry though... it is all good now. This was just one of those things that I figured should be documented for the future, for me and for Miridyan.

Well... I haven't had too much to post on the last little while up until this last week. It's like we are bored for a while and then we find a ton of things to do. I am not complaining though... I do not mind doing nothing every now and then. It's nice to sit around and relax, occasionally go out to lunch with friends and family, be stress free... almost (I will take whatever I can get).
We went to the Main Street Park one night. Usually we will let the girls sit in the stream of water, but for some reason Miridyan wasn't content there. So, we took them over to the fountains where they sat and played with the water. There just so happened to be on that was not as powerful as the rest, which was perfect for them. It was quite entertaining for us as well. Miridyan kept leaning over to get the water and would put her face directly in it. She would catch her breath and then smile and laugh. Paityn and Miridyan love to watch each other. Hopefully they will learn only the good habits from one another.
Morgan and I with our girls. By this point we weren't too worried about getting a little wet ourselves.
Last weekend my good friend Lark came down to stay with us. It was so much fun to catch up with her. She was fabulous with Miridyan, which was a bonus. And... Miridyan absolutely adored her as well. I told Donny that if we ever got a nanny for our children, I would like her to be like Lark. One day... one day !!! I love St George, but when it comes to finding things to do to keep a guest entertained... it wasn't that easy. We went shopping at the outlets, out to dinner and lunch (a few times), got pedicures, and went to a baseball game. I truly had a great time and hope that she did as well. I hope that she will come down again soon. It's not too often that I get to spend time with friends. (The picture below is of Lark in the relaxation room, just before we got our pedicures).
About a week ago our stake had a blood drive. I was so excited to be able to donate, I even talked my mom into going with me. When we got there we both went through the pre-testing to make sure our levels were up to par. Well... I was rejected do to a low hematacrit (iron level). I was bummed, but my mom on the other hand... PERFECT !!! So... here she is, giving back. She did great !!! Atleast I got some cookies and juice for being there.
