Lunch, Ladies and Babies

Remember these ladies? we all have babies!

Hattie & Me {9 weeks}

Amanda & Ronin {5 months}

Jackie & Aidaleena {6 weeks}

We all met up for an early lunch with 3 babies, 3 carseats, 3 diaper bags and took up 3 tables! Ha! Who ever thought that back in first grade we would all be:
1. Living in Utah
2. Still be BFF's after all these years
3. All be MOMMA'S to AdOrAbLe babies who are within 4 months of each other!
I am so grateful to have these beautiful women in my life--I truly don't know what I would do without them! They are the BEST! Thank you so much Jackie Beth and Amanda for such a wonderful afternoon!

Sushi Fun

Our friends The Ruckers invited us over for dinner on Saturday evening and we had SUCH a FUN time! Ben served his mission in Japan and there he learned to make real sushi and let me tell you, he learned well because it was soooo yummy! We also had some great steaks and then for dessert Sean and I stoped by our favorite little sweets shop Dippidee and picked up two DeLiSh and InDuLgEnT "mini cakes" a red velvet (our FAVE) and a spice. I wish I would have taken a picture of them because they were so cute! We love hanging out with these guys and can't wait to have them over for dinner soon! Thank you Ben, Vanessa, & adorable little Chloe!

Festive February

February has been quite the busy month for the Pack Clan!

To start, Sean's sister Kylie came to visit along with his Aunt Kris and cousins Brooke and Chelsea. It was wonderful seeing all of them and we can't wait to pay them all a visit to sunny California hopefully soon! Sean was able to go up skiing with his parents and cousins and they had a great time and aferwards we all went up to The Pie for some delicious pizza!

February is Super Bowl month and James and Magan held the 3rd annual Simmons Super Bowl party. We love these guys and always enjoy the fabulous gatherings they host! Magan and Shara make these AmAzInG Oreo Balls and I have to say I probably ate 30 that evening. There goes the diet! Ha!

My Dad's birthday is February 12th and to celebrate we my family went up to one of our favorite sushi restaurant's Suehiro--YUM! Happy Birthday Daddy!

And of course February is also the month of love :) We had a lovely, low key Valentines Day spent at home. To start the day, to my surprise, when I got out of the shower I smelled some yummy breakfast cooking downstairs. Sean had made THE BEST French Toast for me! We had to hurry and eat sice our church starts at 9:00am. We were a little bit late but we had to get Hattie ready in her Valentines Day Dress of course! We took pictures of her after we got home and she wasn't the happiest little Valentine :( Later on we exchanged gifts and I probably got the best gift from Sean--he took the baby and I was able to take a two hour nap! Thank you babe! It was pure bliss! I also made some yummy cupcakes for us and to share with some of our friends. It was a great Holiday! A couple days later another Valentines gift arrived for Sean. I ordered these canvas prints of Hattie and I think they turned out beautiful!

2 Months Old

Can I just say that time goes by way too fast?! I cannot believe that Manhattan is already two months old! So CrAzY!!! She is growing and changing everyday and it's so much fun watching her learn. Her pediatrician is really busy so her appointment isn't until March 8th but we weighed and measured her yesterday and here are her two month "stats":

Height: 24 inches 87th Percentile
Weight: 11 pounds 36th Percentile

She is so long and skinny! I had to put away all of her newborn clothes at about 7 weeks and yes, I did shed a tear or two :) What else is Manhattan up to at two months? Let her tell you!

- I still LOVE bath time and being naked I could lay around in the buff all day long if my Mom would let me

- I still love singing and music and calm right down when I'm sung to

- I surprised my momma on the February 15th and rolled from my tummy to my back!!! I now do it several times a day--it's a good way to get me off of tummy time which I'm not liking so much these days

- I still love my swing and take naps in it every morning

- I started sleeping through the night consistently at 6 weeks and it makes my parents soooo happy even though I'm a little night owl and go to bed pretty late most nights

- I found my hands and I suck on them a lot

- I had my first Valentine's Day! It was fun!

- I love reading books and my momma still reads to me everyday

- I am such a happy baby and smile and "talk" all the time

- I adore my daddy and could stare at him all day!
