My beauty..

Okay well.. here is a few shots of my London, as if you all haven't seen pictures of her EVERY DAY.. but these are special because it is for her 1st birthday (March 22nd) and also because my friend Jen did them. Jen continues to surprise me with more and more talents that she has up her sleeve for just about everything.. She did an awesome job. If you are interested in looking at her website it is: http://jenheremphotography.blogspot.com/ .
I sure love my little London.. she has given me so much happiness this past year. I told everyone when I was pregnant with her - that she had big shoes to fill with coming after her brother, Isaiah (because of his personality and his good looks.. he he) and she came out with her very own personality that we have all grown to just adore. She definitely holds her own.. if her brother is teasing her, oh boy.. you better watch out. We love her little raspy voice.. she has such a sensitive little spirit.. she will pucker for like 5 minutes before she even starts to cry and my heart just melts. She doesn't do anything she doesn't want to. Isaiah would just perform on demand for me.. with her, she will just sit and stare at strangers as they are talking to her and she actually makes them feel dumb like.. "why are you looking at me??" Just as in these pictures.. she knew I wanted her to smile and she did the opposite the WHOLE time. She LOVES her big brother, and he loves her just as much. Her eyes sparkle when she hears his voice in the other room. It's precious. But one of my favorites is that she loves to snuggle.. she lays down on my chest or my shoulder and I could just stay in that position all day, even if I had important places to be, I would miss them just so I could enjoy that moment. She does everything on "London's time"- she didn't roll over until she was like 9 months old.. and lately she found "her" way of crawling.. she looks like a funny spider. I couldn't be more blessed than to have this child enter my life almost a year ago. In my eyes, she is a perfect miracle.

Wish list..

I just really want these.. (p.s. my birthday is in a few weeks). Every mom needs a pair of shoes that are realistic and comfortable... but then we also need a pair like em, but with a heel just for dress up. So here are my two pairs that I don't just want, I need. Okay, thanks. I am not sure if Jake even looks at my blog, so someone make sure to email him this.. (I am a size 7).

Oh and not to mention... HEALTHY KIDS. Is that too much to ask for?

One on one

I forget how special it is to spend one on one time with each child. I always was spending one on one time with Isaiah for so long before London came along.. so I have to still find those moments where I can do that with him. So today we talked.. and laughed.. and talked some more. We also decided to take funny pictures. I love my first born.. he is precious and has such a sensitive heart. He also is my look alike:) as most of you have said.

Absolutely crazy.

These two kids drive me absolutely NUTS.. This week was a very hard week for mommy but at least it ended with them being super cute.
This is London doing her, "big girl."

Isaiah's classic face.

I love this picture cause this is 100% their personalities.

She hates taking pictures and he loves it. Go figure.


And my favorite.. those dimples and that smirk. Priceless.

We're back:)

Hey long lost blog pals.. I feel like it's been forever since I have actually created a post. The Martin house is finally moved. We had help from SO many people... thank you so very much. There is NO way.. we could have made it without all that help. We love that we are all feeling well now and in a new house! Last week was absolutely horrific.. from Isaiah getting the stomach flu for 3 days, to myself getting pink eye in both eyes, to packing up, to London being sick.. I have never been so grateful to have a day where we all woke up feeling good!! So much to do to make it a "home" but it is coming along. There is not enough hours in a day -- or energy in a day, to get everything done and take care of two rugrats. But to end this very boring post.. here is my beautiful punkin's in their very own bathroom, which mom LOVES (I've shared a bathroom my whole married life).
