Just wanted to share this gorgeous picture of Jael that my sister, Audra, took of her the other day. We had a great Memorial Day weekend. Audra, Jael, and I went to Rock Springs on Saturday and went tubing - we had a blast! Erik's brothers and their families came as well and it was just a really fun day.

Then on Memorial Day we went to Erik's parent's house and Jael got to swim there and then we went to my parent's house and she got to swim in a kiddie pool there. Lots of water fun!

Miss Independent

Short little post...last night I heard two thuds then crying. I realize immediately that Jael has fallen out of her toddler bed. I go in there really quick and by the time I walk in the door she has gotten back in bed, reinserted thumb into mouth, and quickly falls back to sleep. I give a little mommy head rub, walk out, and realize that my little girl did not need mommy to comfort her!! How did this happen? She doesn't need me anymore. Next thing you know I'll be hearing, "Ugh, mom you're so embarrassing." And then college. Then kids - which I'm sure my advice will be sub-par since I haven't had kids in SO LONG.

And this is only the beginning...

So I'm getting scared of 2 - Jael turning 2 that is. She is already very willful and has a short fuse for things not going her way. Last night at my moms condo we spent an hour battling. But, we had a wonderful time before that swimming in the pool, which she LOVES this year. Sweet and sour - that's my girl. She now says "hold you" when she wants me to hold her. So sweet. She also says NO about a 100 times a day - a bit sour. I couldn't imagine a day without her. Love you baby!
