Leif and Sophia

Leif is getting smarter and smarter, he asks me questions constantly about how and why things work, which also means he is becoming defiant...yay. He is full of spunk, and truly loves his sister, Jack, and talks about his "brover" Soren constantly. He has enjoyed playing outside in our new yard, and of course loves anything "Thomas" or "Cars" related.
We are working on potty training. Hopefully all goes well in the next month, and I won't have 3 in diapers. Yikes. Lately he has been coming up to me and saying, "Mommy, you're my favorite, I love you." and gives me a hug. Moments like that make up for all the insanity, and wishing I could pull my hair out. He is truly a darling little boy.

Sophia is pure happiness. She is the sweetest little girl, and loves playing with cars as much as her brother does. It is so funny to watch the little peanut zoom the cars all over the floor...she has it totally figured out. She loves Mama cuggles, and has to be put to bed by me every night, hopefully all goes smooth when Soren arrives, because as of now it HAS to be me. She is developing a goofy sense of humor, and cracks herself up regularly. She says "Uh oh" on a semi regular basis, points at EVERYTHING, and says "Da", everything is "Da". She says "Dada", sometimes directed at Leif, other times just as something to say. She says "Mama" occasionally, usually when she is ready for bed, or is upset. She is going to be a tough little girl, and will be pampered by her brothers and Daddy. I guess it's up to me to try and balance it out. ;)

We are excited for what the next month will bring; inviting Soren into our hearts and home.


  1. Is he moving dirt from the truck to the backpack? Funny boy! They both are adorable little munchkins! :)

  2. That is such a sweet post Lur. I adore and love your kids and can't wait to meet and love Soren.

    p.s. by the looks of your pictures, your new yard looks amazing! Love it! Such a luscious green lawn!
