I have gotten way far behind, so here is Seth at 4,5 and 6 months. At 5 months he started rolling over, shortly after that he started sitting up and now at 6 months he is crawling. My baby is growing up too fast. He is the Happiest baby, we just love him.

Herriman Fire

We were driving home from Lake Powell (I will post pictures when we have our computer hooked back up again)Sunday night when we got a phone call saying there was a fire on our mountain. So frantically calling and texting people we had a neighbor run in and grab our computer. As soon as he entered our home, the firemen were yelling at him to get out and off the street. We were still 5 hours away from our home and that was the longest ride home ever. Wayne kept playing it off that we were going to be find and we shouldn't worry. Our neighbor told Wayne that he should worry, the flames are so high, and it is traveling so fast. When we got to American Fork we could see the flames. The kids started crying, which made me start crying, it looked so scarey. We stayed at a friends home and I only slept 3 hours that night. We were just glued to the tv. Finally Monday around 3 they let us up. Every home in our neighborhood was safe but by looking at the maps and the fire line, it's such a blessing. Our home is still standing. We have a lot a smoke damage in our home and sleeping here for 2 nights we are all getting sick. We are working on getting a cleaning company to come out and take care of all this smell. It's so overwhelming. Wayne measured the distance from our home to the fire line and was about 290 yrds (less than 3 football fields, two streets away from us). That is way too close. We just feel so blessed from family and friends and their concerns and prayers. Thank you

We went camping this past weekend and Seth woke up about 630 with so much energy so we went for a walk (just me and him) and took some pictures. I just love how this one turned out.

My Brooklynn is 5

I can't believe our baby girl is 5 now. It has been so fun watching her grow so much. She just finished preschool and is getting ready for kindergarten. I'm really sad that she is growing up because it's been just me and her for so long. But it is so fun to watch her get so excited for new things she is learning. She loves dress ups and playing with friends. She loves 4 wheeling and swimming. And she just learned to LOVE her bike (still with training wheels). She comes up with the funniest comments ever and her outfits everyday make us laugh. We can't wait to see what this next year brings for her. We love her so much.

3 months old

Seth is now 3 months old. He is getting chunky. He is laughing and smiling so much, that is when he's not crying (which he still does a lot). Parker and Kendra and Brooklynn have more fun with him now that he is a little older. He's sleeping through the night and has been for about a month now. He is just so much fun and we love having him in our family.

Happy Birthday Parker

Parker turned 10 on March 20. So this is a very late. I was in the hospital for his birthday and missed it. But I planned it before I went in and Wayne took over. They went to IHOP for breakfast and he ended up with food poisoning. His friends came over and they all went to see Diary of a Wimpy Kid and Parker was in the bathroom a lot. When they got home, Wayne's mom made homemade pizza (which is always the best) but the smell made Parker stay in the bathroom for his birthday. Poor kid. Not a fun way to spend your 10th birthday. Wayne had a neighbor stay with the kids so he could come up and see me for a little bit. But I didn't get to see Parker.
He is getting so big and more handsome every day. He is so helpful around the house on most things, some things take a little coaxing. He loves to play outside, he loves to draw, build things with legos, and tease relentlessly his sisters. He loves to watch MMA (mixed martial arts) with Wayne. He is so happy to have a brother finally. I love him and we are so happy to have him in our family. We really hope next years birthday is a much better one for him.

Seth Isaac Brown

Seth was born on March 18, 2010. He was 9lbs4oz and 21 1/2 inches. He is such an adorable baby and we just love him so much. Parker, Kendra and Brooklynn love him and smother him to pieces every chance they get. The delivery went good and I'm still healing. He is trying to figure out night sleeping and is getting better (thank goodness). We are so excited and blessed to have him part of our family.
