|Stockton loves dropping the stroller and picking it up and doing it again.|
Also, he loves sitting there and dangling his legs. Cute.

|giving the girls a ride|
|stockty running free|
|look familiar? this is Natalie a year ago, running the same mall|
Aaron (Austin's younger brother) spoke in church on Sunday since he reports to the MTC this Wednesday - crazy!! We are proud of him and excited to hear about his service. Austin and Stockton took some more church selfies (I had about 40 of these on my phone).
Aren't they just so cute? Austin is painting Natalie's nails in teh middle picture while Stockton examines his kneecaps. Natalie lovesssss reading with Daddy. He does all the good voices : )
Let's see, what else?
Things Natalie puts up a fight about:
putting jammies on
taking jammies off and putting clothes on
putting the toy/candy fans away at the checkout line at HyVee
changing her diaper
not having pink lemonade at every possible mention of a beverage
watching Tangled (she's tired of it but Stockton loves it)
closing the door at bedtime
getting out of the bath
Words Stockton has (sort of) said:
na na na (natalie)
Things I'm loving about my children lately:
Natalie being so helpful when I ask her to help me tidy up
Stockton sitting in a corner reading Freight Train over and over
their extreme fascination and glee about the minions from Despicable Me
Natalie sharing food with Stockton, even bringing a forkful across the room for him
Natalie naming her art projects - examples: "Rapunzel Sparklies" "Willy and 'Netta" "Baymax"
Stockton checking in more often, just coming up and smiling his huge smile like "hey mom, I love you and was just thinking about you!"
I took Natalie to a combined baptism on Saturday and she did really well! She was reverent and sweet and definitely felt the spirit of the event. She loved sitting right up against the glass by the font and told me afterwards that "they went down into the water! they splashed. they were baptized, like Jesus." There's almost no sweeter feeling than watching your child understand a Gospel principle, especially their relationship with Christ. Going to this baptism was a great teaching opportunity - I highly recommend taking your children. Natalie keeps telling us "I get baptized when I'm eight! I will wear white."
|and then there's nakie pineapple time. the best.|
