Happy Anniversary to US!!! (part deuce)

I can't believe that we have been married for four years. It really feels like just yesterday that we got married.

I love Becky because...
-I make her laugh
-I make her a better person
-I am SUPER hot
-I am the best dad in the world
-I am very selfless
-I love me

I also love Becky because...
-She has limitless talents (singing & photography)(dancing?). There is a new one every year and luckily all the talents are expensive.
-She is very patient (mostly with me)
-She is always optimistic
-She is a great mother
-She is smoking hot and has beautiful LONG hair
-She is the reason I am a better person today
-Our combined DNA makes beautiful kids

I love you

It just took a little Patience!

The one thing I have learned today is to not push your kids into growing up too fast. A couple of months ago I was selfish and pushed and pushed Sadie to potty train. I was tired of changing two diapers and felt she was old enough and smart enough to do it. I had many friends who had successfully trained their kids who were Sadies age. I knew without a doubt she would be a piece of cake. Most of you may remember it didn't end very well. Sadie plain out wasn't ready. She would cry and hold her bladder for almost 24 hours. We thought she had a bladder infection so she had to get a catheter put in her, just for the doctor to tell us she was fine and just wasn't ready to potty train. So we stopped. We didn't talk potty for a while. Just recently we have been reading her her potty book again and just have been talking about it. She all on her own wanted to wear her panties again. I let her just for a couple of days without even asking her to sit on her kid potty. Then I started leaving it in the living room so it was accessible to her. She has been sitting on it all on her own, and even has been going BOTH all on her own. I have been so happy just letting her go at her own speed. It just shows me that they know when they are ready.

We are no experts, but I really am so thankful for a husband that is so good at raising kids. We are really against letting our girls "cry it out" at night. I know most of you think we are crazy, but we are so thankful we have done it this way. The girls love their bedtime now and are so excited when we read to them and sing songs every night. That is my favorite time of the day. They have their favorite books and songs we sing every single night. lol

I don't really know what this post is about, but I guess I am just so proud of both of them and love them so much!! They are the sweetest girls and have made me such a better person!!! Can't wait to have another one!!!!!!!! I AM BABY HUNGARY!! lol

I saw this on someone elses blog and loved it.

The below was given in an address to BYU students by Elder Neal A. Maxwellin 1978.

"Make no mistake about it, brothers and sisters, in the months and years ahead, events are likely to require each member to decide whether or not he will follow the First Presidency. Members will find it more difficult to halt longer between two opinions. President Marion G. Romney said, many years ago, that he had 'never hesitated to follow the counsel of the Authorities of the Church even though it crossed my social, professional or political life.'

"This is hard doctrine, but it is particularly vital doctrine in a society which is becoming more wicked. In short, brothers and sisters, not being ashamed of the gospel of Jesus Christ includes not being ashamed of the prophets of Jesus Christ. . . . Your discipleship may see the time when such religious convictions are discounted. . . . This new irreligious imperialism seeks to disallow certain opinions simply because those opinions grow out of religious convictions.

"Resistance to abortion will be seen as primitive. Concern over the institution of the family will be viewed as untrendy and unenlightened.... Before the ultimate victory of the forces of righteousness, some skirmishes will be lost. Even in these, however, let us leave a record so that the choices are clear, letting others do as they will in the face of prophetic counsel. There will also be times, happily, when a minor defeat seems probable, but others will step forward, having been rallied to rightness by what we do. We will know the joy, on occasion, of having awakened a slumbering majority of the decent people of all races and creeds which was, till then, unconscious of itself. Jesus said that when the fig trees put forth their leaves, 'summer is nigh.' Thus warned that summer is upon us, let us not then complain of the heat."

--- Elder Neal A. Maxwell
