Life with 2 kiddos

We are the happy parents of 2 kiddos now, but soon to be 3 in June!  Mallory is my oldest daughter who is currently 3 1/2 years old and Trevor is 21 months old.

Mallory is just about as sweet as can be and has a HUGE heart!  She wants everyone to be happy.  She is also the most adorable little girl around!  With her blue eyes, dark blond hair with curls at the bottom, and her pale white skin, she's just about as beautiful as they come!  Mallory is so active!  She has a very hard time sitting still, which makes Sacrament meeting during church, the hardest 75 mins of our week. Dinner time every night is a battle to get her to sit still and eat at the table with us, but going out to eat is most always a nightmare.  Mallory also struggles with listening to what mommy and daddy say to her (like most 3 year olds, I'm sure).  She always means well, but since she is so active, she hates hearing she has to sit down, so she usually struggles with listening to us when we tell her to not do something.  Mallory LOVES being a helper!  She often offers her help.  One of the best things about Mallory is that she is a SOCIAL BUTTERFLY!  She often waves and says hi to strangers and will even start a conversation with them if they allow her.  She adjust to most circumstances and thrive in them.  Such as, nursery at church, preschool, her sports class and even in her gymnastics class. She is a joy and we love her more than words can describe!

Trevor is also the sweetest little guy!  He melts our hears daily with is adorable laugh and smile.  Trevor isn't as social as his big sister is.  He needs his mommy or daddy by his side almost always.  At times that can be hard, but other times it's nice to feel needed!  Trevor is a HUGE daddy's boy!  He loves being with and around his daddy.  When daddy isn't around Trevor seems to be pretty happy with his momma though!  He LOVES his big sister and finds almost everything she does funny!  One if his favorite things to do is wear shoes!  Mostly his sister's shoes!  He also loves hot wheel cars and carrying them around everywhere.  His favorite thing to eat is peanut butter and jelly sandwiches. Most days he'll also enjoy hotdogs.  He doesn't like most fruits or vegetables, but he does love smoothies!  Trevor isn't saying may words yet, but he's great at: no, hi, hello momma, dada, more & milk.  He's been saying a lot of other words, but they aren't as clear as the others.  I just have a feeling that Trevor will be our family's little calmer.  He makes everyone happy and we love him so much!

Mallory and Trevor play so well together!  Together they laugh a lot, like watching movies together, like to chase each other, and give each other kisses.  With Mallory being the BIG sister she can find herself bossing Trevor around but don't worry, this little guy will stick up for himself!  His favorite word is "NO!" and let me tell you, he knows how to use it!  We'll quickly remind Mallory to say "it's okay Trevor" and whether he's mad or sad, if she says that he'll calm right down with his big sister's gentle touch.  I truly believe Mallory and Trevor will be best friends forever!
