YES, We Really Do Have Eight!

I love babies. When my babies hit their first birthday, I long once again for that tiny helpless little person that smells like baby powder and doesn't squirm away when you're staring at his beautiful little face. Now don't get me wrong. I love the other stages too. I laugh out loud when I hear the jibber jabber of his first words (Jackson). I giggle when I see one dance hysterically when she hears a Justin Bieber song (Bekkah). I beam with pride when she puts gospel principals into action as she prepares for her upcomming baptism (Emily). I am amazed over and over as he accepts and conquers challenges far beyond his years (Ammon). I burst with pride as I watch his determination and drive in all that he sets his mind to (Zane). I melt when I see the empathy, and concern she has for others (Mckenzie). I have to catch my breath when I see him snuggle with his baby brother (Zachary). I am amazed as I read his letters from his mission (Tres). I guess I just love it all. And this is why I have, despite my horrible pregnancies, we have eight beautiful, talented, amazing, wonderful children!

Rebekkah is Four Years Old

Our little princess is four!
She's no longer a baby and is sure to make that very clear. She loves the movie Tangled and the colors pink and purple. She enjoys swimming, reading books and playing dress up. We can often find her playing with her toys. She fills back packs full of her favorite things and finds quiet (and somtimes not so quiet) places to empty her pack and sing songs to her toys. Her favorite song currently is Book of Mormon Stories. She is excited to start preschool in the fall and wants a Rapunzel backpack.
There have been times when we weren't sure if we would be able to celebrate this day. Her heart continues to worsen, and yet she amazes her doctors time and again.
I am so grateful for good doctors, medications and a loving Heavenly Father who has given us another year with our beautiful little princess!
