Las Vegas

I'm sure a few of you have noticed that I haven't blogged much lately. The past year has been difficult for me. After dealing with my mom being very ill and passing away, having a new baby, trying to find work for my husband, and transitioning to a stay at home mom, the storm seems to have calmed. Looking back on the challenges it couldn't be more clear that this is the plan Heavenly Father has for me and he has prepared me for every step of it. It is pretty amazing and comforting to know that he knows me and my struggles and is helping me with every step. Especially being a stay at home mom. I don't think that I've ever needed his help with anything this much, and I pray more constantly now that ever before. Mostly so I don't throw any kids out of the window...But I am getting better. Promise!
Besides moving in the heat of August and arriving to an apartment with a broken air conditioner and having it be 100 degrees in our house and having to stay in a hotel and not being able to unpack because of the heat, moving to Las Vegas has been a blast. Rob seems to really enjoy his job and the people he works with. We were blessed to find an area that is really nice and close to everything we could need. The ward that we live in is also very nice.
My kids are getting so big. Robbie is 3 years old and he amazes me everyday. Honestly I had a hard time getting used to being around him so much. It was more difficult to be at home everyday with a almost three year old that I thought it would be. But he is so much fun. He loves Spiderman and can sing the whole Spiderman theme song. He loves music and dancing. He is more proficient using Rob's I-Phone than I am. He can find any game or video on the internet and use most of the apps. It is frightening.
Kailyn is now 11 months old. Oh my. She is getting so big. She started walking at 10 months and now walks all over the place. She is a climber. She climbs on anything she can get a hold of. She just got her first two teeth. One of the bottom and one on the top. She gives the best kisses and high fives. She also eats everything in sight (I wonder where she learned that from, haha). She can say Mama and Dada, Dog, That and Hello. Whenever she says hello she hold her hand to her ear like a cell phone. She is such a calm, loving, and understanding baby. She is such a joy.

I was so happy to finally see an update on your blog! You are such a strong and beautiful woman, and I admire you more than you'll ever know. I'm so glad I can call you my friend. I'm glad Vegas is agreeing with you, and that you're finding your groove. Miss your cute family!
