Start Your Engines!

I swear! I have gotten on this blog 3 times this week with the intention of writing some amazing post... then I start reading everyone else's amazing posts and there is nothing to be said for the Huishs. So here I am dad-gum-it! I will post if its the last thing I do tonight... which will probably be the case!

Now Where To Start?!

Life at the Huish house has been fun... (most days)! The arrival of Stacie Lynn was cause for an adjusting period but we are loving our little family! Landon has been an amazing big brother! When Stacie cries he goes into protective mode and begins to softly sing "Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star." I love him! It is cute to see how big brothers instinctively look after their little sisters! I can't tell you how happy that makes me! Of course he is a three year old and can be quite a stinker! He enjoys pouting (not so fun) and that is what we have the hardest time with. I am sure this is what I deserve though since I was exactly the same way for my parents... as everyone likes to remind me. :)

Landon likes to fill his day enjoying food, art projects, and anything that has to do with Lightening McQueen or Thomas the train! He is a pretty loud kid and is complete with all sorts of sound effects. The other day I sat down to race some cars with him. He leaned back with his head raised to the ceiling and shouted, "Gentlemen Start Your ENGINES!!!!" I rolled the car backward (it is one of those cars you pull back then let go and it zooms away) and he gave me an outraged look and put out his hand to stop my car. "Mom! Start your engine first!" haha I made some sort of revving sound, then waited for him to rev up his other two cars before we could race! I love being with him and am grateful that Stacie still takes 2 naps so I can spend quality time loving on him!

Stacie is basically perfect! If she was a color she would be yellow! I can already tell that she has a big heart! She loves smiling at everyone. She is happy to just lay on her belly and chat to whomever or whatever she is with! She loves laughing at Landon! Today after I finished nursing her Landon was crawling around her changing table playing with the curtains and she was cracking up! She is a busy body and wants to grab everything right out of your hands... and boy is she quick! When she gets really excited or frustrated she spits and vibrates her lips which totally cracks me up!

Tyler is pretty busy with work and our schedules are kind of crazy... and don't always compliment one another, but that just makes us appreciate the time we do get to spend together. :) I appreciate him so much! He is so good at making me feel appreciated and loved!

So, there you have it! I am one lucky duck! I have been blessed with a family that I cherish more than I thought possible! I never thought that it would be so rewarding to be a mom. I am finding that I am most happy when my family is happy doing the things that Heavenly Father has asked us to!

July Randomness

So July seemed like a very long month!
Here is Lando sporting a winter hat that is too small for him as well as a pull-up (which he absolutely loves... more on that later...) just driving his truck around like no body's business!
Side note.... I think it is fascinating how boys seemed to be wired to understand cars... Whenever we are driving Landon points out other peoples cars... not just by the color or size... the actual model! The other day a white Equinox pulled up next to us and Landon was so excited that there was Mom's car! He's amazing!

We had a fun 4th of July. Landon and I went to the ward breakfast while Tyler was working. We managed to lay low until Landon was walking on the bench of a table and fell between the two... then everyone noticed us! :) Oh man. Once again I believe I'm in the running for Mother of the Year!
Sunday night we got together with Holli and Brenley's families and went out to watch fireworks! Landon learned how to use the camera while we were waiting and proceeded to give himself a photo shoot of his face. Now he loves the camera and always wants to take pictures! Maybe he will have a natural talent! :) Or maybe he is a 2 year old that likes to investigate like all the rest!

Landon's June Faces

Landon has such a funny personality! He has always been a pretty serious little guy but he has some fun faces! Of course I can never catch any on camera but here were a few of his fun faces in June!
Ahh yes... the "cheese" smile... I'm hoping that this one doesn't come out too often when we get our family pictures done soon!

I'm not sure what this is from but this is the face he gives Tyler and me when we ask him to do something that he doesn't want to but knows that he's not going to get away with it.
PS... Please don't judge the kitchen cabinets... they are in the process of being stained... the very long process that has been going on since we moved into our house!

This is where Landon decided to eat his lunch one day! He was so proud of himself it was cracking me up! Despite the fact that we don't like him eating outside the kitchen I let it slide! I just couldn't help it!

He loves accessories... sometimes this makes me worry. It's not just the sunglasses he's into... necklaces... headbands.... the works. I do worry a little that if I have a girl that I'm going to have to do some serious Boy socializing with Lando. For now its fun... He would definitely choose a truck or ball over a headband so I am safe for now I think!

Yes it is True....

Landon is going to be a big brother! I'm pregnant once again! We are very excited! Seeing as how Landon came while we were not trying to get pregnant I thought it would be fun to try and plan this little one.... I decided that January would be the month for us. That would make the birthdays 6 months apart. I figured that if Tyler and I ever had anymore children I would simply fill in the other gaps.... April then October.... we shall see.... at the moment we are thinking we are done! Then believe it or not the planning worked! We got pregnant the week I wanted us to and now we are hoping that this baby doesn't come too early and is born on our anniversary.... or New Years!
Anyway... that's the scoop for now! Just thought I better put it out there before people start wondering why I am putting on the weight!
PS Holy Canoli It is so true (at least for me) that you show sooner earlier! Golly I feel huge!

The Cold sore from ____

Tyler got the worst cold sore ever. A half dollar would barely cover the blistering, scabbing sore that plagues the upper left side of his mouth. I think he got it from one I had on my nose.

Well, when Tyler gets sick, everything gets sick -- his immune system can't keep up. So he first started with the cold sore - attack 1 -- and the immune system was wiped out. In came the flu for a nasty three day blow, and finally a cold that has left a sinus infection and a dried out, cracking nose, bleeding randomly throughout the day.

Sorry, no pictures for this post; I couldn't bare sharing knowing that you may loose your lunch when confusing Tyler's face for an outer-orbit shot of Mars!!!
