There have been alot of pictures added to our blog, thanks to my wonderful sister-in-law Janille. She had alot of pictures on her camera and discs and it was just easier for her to add them to my blog rather than emailing them to me. If anyone knows me, you know I am not that smart on the computer, so if she were to email them to me they would have never made it to my blog. So enjoy all of the fun pictures. There are pictures added to every page. Thanks Janille.
I don't talk about my husband very often. Its all about the kids on this blog. Anyways, I have such a wonderful patient husband. I love him so much. He is such a wonderful dad to our little girls also. I am so lucky. Anyways, my friend emailed my this little survey and I thought it would be fun to post it on my blog page.
1. What is your husbands name? Tyler Reed Olson 2. How long did you date? exactly 6 monthes from the time we met to the day we got married. (April 2003-October 2003) 3. How old is he? 27 (Younger than me and he doesnt let me forget it) 4. Who eats more? Good question. It depends on the food. Probably me since I usually don't get around to eating until dinner. 5. Who said I love you first? He did. I loved it. 6. Who is taller? He is by 6 inches. 7. Who sings better? Neither of us are professionals, but most of us have heard the wonderful singing from the shower and the fun songs he makes up. He is so funny. 8. Who is smarter? Probably him. 9. Who does the laundry? I do, where it all comes from so fast, I will never understand. 10. Who pays the bills? Usually him, but I do sometimes. 11. Who sleeps on the right side of the bed? I do, so I can get to the girls faster. 12. Who mows the lawn? He does, but I offer. 13. Who cooks? I do. Once in a while he will surprise me with something wonderful and tasty. 14. Who drives? He does, unless we are in a hurry, then I take over. He is much more cautious than me. 15. Who is more stubborn? Definately me. I would never admit it in an argument. He is wonderful. 16. Who kissed who first? He kissed me, a week after we met. 17. Who asked who out? He gave me his number first, after impressing me by throwing chapstick into a broken fire extinguisher holder from a long distance. He called me the next night, and that was it, we were dating from then on. 18. Who proposed? He did and I ruined his wonderful idea. He wanted to take me for a walk up Rock Canyon, but not knowing he was going to propose, I told him it was too late for that. So we went to Salem pond instead. I rushed to the car because it was too dark to see my ring. 19. Who has more friends? He talks to more of his than I do. 20. Who is more sensitive? Definately me. I cry so easily. The poor guy never knows whats going on. 21. Who has more siblings? I do, I have 3 brothers and 3 sisters, he has 1 brother and 2 sisters. 22. Who wears the pants? We both do. He would probably say me, because I am too bossy. This comment was made by him the other day to me, "Quit micro-managing my time for me." It is funny to me now, but it made me cry, hence the sensitivity quesiton above. I told him to hurry and get dressed because we were running late for church. I was able to get myself ready, bathe two kids, get them dressed, make breakfast, and pack the diaper bag before he was even dressed. I had the right to tell him to hurry up.
Anyways, even when comments are made about micro-managing his time, I still love him to death and would not ask for anyone else. We have a great life and it is mainly because of him. I love you so much Ty.
Well as I was watching my sweet Avery Lynne sleep today, (she is sick, once again. Is spring ever coming???) as I was saying, as I was watching her sleep I started to think of all of her favorite things/things she likes to do. I am so proud of her. She is such a happy, busy,creative, curious little girl. She is getting so big. I just love her so so much. Here is her list:
-Cheetos (she gets mad at me when I don't let her buy them at the store) -Doritos (read above comment) -The orange part on the orange/white string cheese. (When I say orange, I mean only orange) -Grapes -Strawberries -McDonalds (Its not a happy meal, its Nuggets, Fries, and Sprite.) -Dora -Diego -Incredibles -Brady Bunch -Curious George -Hi Ho Cherry O -Chutes and Ladders -Candy Land -Singing -Reading Books -Jeans (She asks to wear them daily) -"BIG" pony tails -Helping mom make cookies -Writing her name with no help and nothing to look at. She is so smart. -gymnastics -Playing with all of her aunts, uncles, and cousins. Right now she especially misses her uncle Jengiz. -Madis house in St. George -Helping her baby sister walk, except she already knows how to walk, so we hear lots of screaming from Adi. -Going on Airplane rides to Michigan. -Her daddy being home with her. -Counting to 10 in Spanish -Asking me what letters sound like. -Knowing all of her shapes -Counting to atleast 30. -Playing Hide and Seek,(and telling you where she is hiding) -Picking out clothes for her cousins Gracie and Luke, weather we buy them or not, because they are "SO CUTE") -Playing in her bedroom with Adison, what a mess. But they sound so cute laughing with each other. -Sunglasses -Flip Flops -Telling everybody that the Easter Bunny is bringing her a BIG bike.
I just love Avery so much. She always makes me laugh with her silly whitty comments.(Just like her Daddy) and she always puts a smile on my face with her hugs and kisses. I love you so so much Ave.
My poor little Adison has had several ear infections since November, we all know this. Medication after medication. We have an appointment with the specialist on the 25 th to discuss tubes. Well, this past week and a half I have been wondering if her ears have been hurting her, but since we have no insurance for her I have not taken her into the Dr.s and have been blaming it on the 3 teeth she has been trying to cut since we were in Michigan in December. Every night she wakes up crying for me several times and since I have been sick, I just lay her back down with her binky and blankie and let her cry herself to sleep. We are headed to St. George today so I finally took her in yesterday, so we wouldn't have a sick baby over the weekend. Sure enough, DOUBLE EAR INFECTION!!!!!!!!! I felt horrible, hence the title MY BAD MOM WEEK! Her ears have been hurting her for a week now. I just about started crying when we walked out of the Dr.s room. Poor baby. Because Adi is getting so much attention from her ears, I heard this comment from Avery last night, "Mommy, will you snuggle me, I have an ear infection, sore throat, headache, and I think my elbow hurts!" I think she needed attention from her mommy. I love you so much Avery Lynne.
Our family was started on October 24,2003,6 months after meeting through a mutual friend, surprisingly at a UVSC dance. We had our first daugher in October of 2004 and our second daughter in January of 2007. We love spending time as a family and are very blessed to have family close by in Utah and we are lucky enough to make a few trips to Michigan a year to visit with my family.
