Cousin Kaia: This blog is sort of like my journal and scrapbook so I wanted to share a little about Kaia our niece. She started saying the babies names now too and it's so cute. She says "Aundy, Ugoo, Leki, & Miah" She sometimes just calls the babies "beeby." Her mom tells us that she looks at our pictures and repeats "Hi Aundy, Hi Ugoo, Bye Aundy, Bye Ugoo" Kind of in a sing song tone. It's cute, I've heard her do it a few times. She is definitely a huge part of our lives. And I am thrilled all the kids will have each other to grow up with and we will have so many shared memories. (Oh, one more thing. She cracks me up because she'll call my name over and over and over, when I ask her what she'll just point the one of the babies and say "beeby" or sometimes say nothing at all. So sometimes I have fun and do it to her, then she laughs)

(you may be wondering about the "Jerry" we use that because it is the ONE nickname we do not like and pray he never gets... so when we are at our whits end and starting to get annoyed, for some reason that name comes out... not sure why, maybe its a coping skill, disassociation or something)

For Kaia's b-day we got her a baby doll, a kitchen cupcake set with apron, bowl, spoon, etc. and I made her a special cupcake blanket.
Later in the evening we had another birthday party, for the McIndoo's. Happy Birthday to Dad, Cousin Michelle, Grandad Don, Aunt Kathy, Justin, and myself!

MOMMY BRAG MOMENT: Yesterday, the babies had their 9 month appointment. These are the doctors words: "I have never seen any baby, let alone twins, who were born this premature do so amazing developmentally, they are beyond what they should be." I know, I am bragging, but I am also so thankful that they are doing as well as they are. (Jeremiah weighed in at 17.1 lbs and 27 &1/4inches and Alexis was 17.2lbs and 27&1/2 inches)

2009 is here... Wow, I am amazed when I look back at 2008. The year was filled with so many blessings!! I hope this year I am able to be a better servant for our Lord, a better wife, mother, sister, daughter, and friend. I have fallen short so many times and I hope I have the strength in 2009 to be worthy of all the gifts I have been given.
Again, this year we had a party at our house. "Bartlett's Burger Buffett" we made a bunch of mini hamburgers and had lots of different toppings: ketchup, mustard, mayo, terriayki, ranch, A1, BBQ sauce, salsa, chili, lettuce, tomato, pineapple, bacon, avocado, pickles, onion, fried onions, green chilies, & 5 different kinds of cheeses.
Along with some side dishes I also made a "hamburger cake" I came up with this idea, and surprisingly it actually came out better than I thought it would. Not only that, but it tasted good too!!
Happy New year to each of you! May 2009 be filled with love and laughter!
