Happy Birthday Miss Hannah

Hannah turned 2 on Monday-
she is growing so much and is turning into quit the beauty!
I know she will be the brute of the family, but she is so pretty!
I feel like she is catching on so well, words, actions etc.
We love this little girl!
She is my little beauty and cant imagine life without her!
It was two years ago that she was born.
It was one of the hardest times of our lives, first she didnt breath for a 72 seconds, she was to big to come out and her collar bone was broken during delivery.
On her three day check up we found out that she wasnt eating, her BMI was a 19- normal is like a 2-5.....
after like a week of every 2 hour bottle feedings, being attached to an in home florecent light, and pricks in her foot this beauty charged through it and is almost surpassing her 4 year old sister.
She is a champ....

What a busy few weeks it has been, Zoes birthday and the anticipation of our first nephew!
His name is Zander Tate, born July 25th at 1158 pm
He is a beauty! heres the proud uncle
We had a great visit with all the family for a solid week in Wenatchee, this is down at grandma Jeannes house

And i couldnt resist this photo-
the little guy showing his true colors:)

When it pores:)

So here I am visiting the great town of wenatchee- great friends good family and two children! A two year old and a 6 week old. Never have I traveled this far ( 2 1/2 hours) by myself with them and the trip there- fantastic!! Well on the way home I was stopped by a road crew blowing up rocks- 20 minute delay- okay, so we wait the twenty minutes. We pass the flagger and of course it has been 2 hours since I fed the newborn so its time to eat she screams- we make it to the rest stop and POW its closed, so we pull over! Then in the middle of feeding my two year old yells POTTY MOMMY, POTTY MOMMY- great- I say. So I give her the option to go outside- NO WAY so I say " lets put on your sisters diaper and just this one time you can go in a diaper" NO WAY aaaaaaaaaaaa- what do I do...well, there is a fruit stand up the road! So we hop in the car, get to the fruit stand and I plead my case- YES they say, you can use the toilet!!!
okay, I think we are good to go...but of course we get behind three truckers!!!
So long story short our 2 1/2 hour trip ends up taking us almost four and we make it home to a loving husband and father and a batch of peanut butter cookies from the neighbor!
I guess there is always a rainbow at the end of a rainstorm- HUH?
