Morgan's first bath!

Yay for Morgan after three weeks she was finally able to have a real bath. Her umbilical cord took alot longer to fall off than my other two girls. It got infected so I had to clean it multiple times during the day and let me tell you it did NOT smell good. She loves her baths until it is time to get out then she screams until I get her dryed off, then she loves to get lotioned. She is such a good baby and we love her so much!

Halloween Fun!!

We LOVE Halloween at our house. Mark was off this year so it made it even better. We started celebrating a week before at my sisters house. We dressed up the kids and let them trick or treat around her yard. Then Tali dressed up for her school Halloween party. After school they had a costume parade and then they sang Halloween songs they had been learning, it was so cute. I took the girls to one of my friends' work during the day on Friday to trick or treat, later that night we went to our old wards trunk or treat. On Saturday in the pouring rain I took the girls trick or treating around our neighborhood. We came home and watched the Utah game while Tali LOVED handing out candy to all our trick or treaters. We had a great Halloween and thanks to Mark for staying home with baby, she is still too little to take out and about! Tali was Ariel, Kenya a witch, and Morgan a penguin! Tali's school class

Tali is mad!

First snow of the season!

When we woke up to snow the girls were so excited. Tali was upset that she had to go to school she wanted to stay home and play in the snow. So after Tali got home from school I dressed them up in their snow clothes and sent them outside. They loved it. They made snow angels and threw snowballs at each other!

We LOVE visitors and the girls love playing with their cousins. Both my sisters have came over to see baby. Tali and Kenya have enjoyed the extra people and having someone to play with besides each other!

Gardner Village

Since I haven't felt like leaving the house, I feel bad for the two girls that are stuck at home all day except for Tali the three days that she goes to school. Mark got them ready and took them to Gardner Village to see all the witches. They had a blast and I'm sure the fresh air was excellent for them!! When they came home Mark told me that Tali wouldn't get her picture with any of the witches because she was scared and Kenya LOVED the witches not scared at all....this does not surprise me at all!! I am so grateful that Mark is such a good dad and loves to take his girls on little outings.


Mark got out the spray paint and this is what we ended up with.....GO UTES!!!

Morgan is 2 weeks!!

Morgan was 2 weeks old on 10/13/10. I can't believe how fast time goes by, I am learning to enjoy every minute. She had her 2 week appointment and here are here stats:
She weighs 8 lbs and 5 ounces
and she is 21 1/4 inches long
Morgan is such a good baby. She never cries, she will just fuss a little when she is ready to eat which is every four hours. The girls LOVE taking care of her and will jump up if she makes one little noise. They are always very concerned about her.

Baby Sister!

We have a new baby sister at our house. After 40 weeks of growing inside me it was time for her to meet all of us. I went in for a schedule c-section and everything went as planned. We welcomed her on 9/29/10 at 11:53 am. Meet Morgan Ilaisaane Marie Lapuaho
7 lbs 11 ounces
20 inches long
We love every inch of her...she is just perfect!

Tali has been a big helper. She loves to hold her and feed her and is the first to let us know baby is crying. Kenya has a much shorter interest span in her, she loves to hold her and feed her also but only for a couple of minutes and then baby is too heavy. Mark has been off this week and my mom has been here to help. I am still quite sore and trying to heal from my c-section. Once Mark goes back to work and my mom is gone it will be interesting to see how we all get along.

Tali goes back to preschool!

Tali has been asking all summer when school starts. She loved preschool last year and couldn't wait to start again this year. It was finally time for her to start her 2nd year of preschool. She loves her teacher and is learning so much.

Ward Camp

We took the girls on one last camping trip for the year. We went with our ward to Camp Everett. We had a good time except we could have done without all the rain. We went the last weekend in August. We enjoyed dinner and a smore bar for dessert. The girls had fun playing with all the kids. We look forward to next year and hopefully we will have better weather!

Tali turned 4!!

Tali turned 4 on July 29th. She wanted to have a beach birthday party. We had her party on August 7th since Mark was working the weekend of her birthday. We rented a water slide for the kids, enjoyed a nice BBQ, had a flip flop pinata, sang happy birthday, open LOTS of gifts, and enjoyed a beach birthday cake thanks to my mom who made the cutest cake ever. Tali enjoyed playing with all her cousins, and despite the 2 hour rain (more like down pour) shower we had the day turned out to be great!! I took Tali to her well child check and here are her stats:
Weight: 37 pounds - 35 percentile
Height: 39 inches - 35 percentile
Her blood pressure and vision are perfect.
Tali is such a sweet spirit and we are glad she choose us to be her parents. She is so excited to start her second year of preschool in September. She also can't wait for the baby to come out of mommy's belly so she can hold and feed her!!
