New year

Well it is another year. I am another year older, hmmm. I hope 2011 brings good things. I am glad to be through the holiday season. It is always fun but exhausting. I went back for my first weekend in the Er at EIRMC this weekend. It was good to be back working, but hard to be gone from kate. We had a great xmas, although I really missed my sisters. Kate is now 2 months old. That has really gone by fast. She weighs 9lbs 9 ounces and was 22 1/4 inches long. She continues to be smile and laugh at us. She has a very infectious smile. She is either very happy or crying. She is still struggling with colic, worse in the evening. Some days are better than others. She loves her sisters very much. She also loves her mommy, she is a little spoiled. Joe is ready for spring to be here, he is getting bored. He has a few motorbiking trips planned to pass the long winter season. We are getting very excited to go to Disneyland. We fly out in 10 days. The girls are so excited to see the princesses and ride the rides. I am just excited to see the sunshine and get out of the house.

December at the jeppesens

Well December is really flying by! Xmas is here in 4 days. I am having a hard time getting in the spirit this year and I am not sure why. Kate is now up to 7lbs and is 5 weeks old. She has become colicky in the last 2 weeks. It has been a trial of my patients. By the end of the night I am pretty flustered. I keep telling myself this will go away soon (I think to keep my sanity). She is a fun addition to the house. Bailee still loves to hold her and change her diaper, ella likes her but gets tired of her at times. Bailee has lost her 2nd tooth this week. That brings her total to 8 teeth lost! She is very excited about that. Bailee is enjoying school and dance, not so much piano. She did however get a perfect score at festival, so maybe that will make her more excited about the piano. Ella is really enjoying preschool. She has really grown with her vocabulary and knowledge since she started. Thank you Mrs. Doggit! The girls are looking forward to Santa coming, but they are more excited for Disneyland. We are going the end of January. We are all looking forward to a trip. We have never been on a big trip since ella was born (hmm I wonder why :). At least we can get out of the snow and cold for a week. Yes I may be crazy taking a newborn on a trip but I am hoping she will be good. I am trying to adjust to being home. I had a lot of plans and projects to complete on maternity leave and have not got any done. I forget that a new born especially a colicky one, is a full time job! But that is what maternity leave is for I guess. Joe is working for the UPS company helping for the holiday season. I will try to get a picture of him in his uniform to post. It doesn't pay much but it gets him out of my hair. I don't stay too far from the office. I am working saturday and then a day next week for a few hours. I am looking forward to getting out of the house, and maybe it will help me keep my sanity! Otherwise we are very thankful for all of our blessings, friends, and family this year. I hope everyone has a safe and happy holiday season!! Here are some pics of the girls that katie wells took. They turned out very good!!

Ella was so excited to see becca she would not go to preschool!
Kate all dressed to go to her first appt at the office to see dr joe!!

Okay obviously with all my free time that I am not use to I am taking a lot of pictures. It is funny, most of the time life is so busy and you would give anything for a free moment, until you have one. I get up clean my house, do a load of laundry, feed kate, try to handle ella and then wonder what I am going to do the rest of the day. I am sure after I get use to being home for a week or two I will settle down and enjoy being home especially now that it is the holidays. I also have had some time to realize how truly lucky I am. Between my great husband, kids, family, and friends I am very blessed.
