Baby Ellie has arrived!

We are so excited to have another little niece.  Now I have a niece on each side and it is so much fun!  Erin had to wait until she was 41 weeks pregnant to get induced so she got induced on the 18th and 7:30. She did most of it without an epidural until close to the end.  It took forever to push her out so I'm sure she was glad to have it!  Erin at the last minute decided to let my mom and I in when she had her.  It was seriously so cool!  Didn't freak me out at all!  Ellie came out so cute and sweet, right when she came out and they put her in the spotlight she put both of her hands over her eyes.  It was so funny!  She weighed 8 pounds and 1 ounce, 21 inches long, and born at 11:24 p.m.  She is seriously the cutest baby!  We are not sure who she looks like, but for sure looks like a little girl!  I am addicted to her! I have seen her everyday so far!  Tage and Cohen met her today and Tage held her and Cohen looked at her and kept saying, "Hi baby Ellie!"  We are so excited our families are getting bigger!

Trip to the Zoo

Last tuesday we decided to go to the zoo.  We usually go with friends, but we just went all by ourself.  We had so much fun.  It was nice just following Tage around where ever he wanted to go.  Cohen loved the birds that were flying around, glad we went to the zoo to see birds haha.  Tage loved the elephants and the monkeys/gorillas.  It was the perfect temperature outside, and the zoo was packed!  We went on the carousel and the train.  They both loved going on those.  Cohen really liked the train and kept asking to go on it again the whole time.  Notice how Cohen isn't really looking in one picture, there was too much excitement and so much to look at, at the zoo.  We had a really good time and the boys were both really good! I love my boys!

Cohen's 2 year old appointment:)

Mr. Cohen Bret Allen 2 year old stats:

32.2 lbs.- 89th percentile 
36 inches tall- 89th percentile 

This little man is not so little anymore.  He really hasn't been since he was like 6 weeks old.  He is just getting bigger and bigger by the day! We love this little 2 year old so much, even though he makes us crazy he is such a sweet heart.  He was so funny at the Dr.  He kept telling the dr. he wanted him to bring him back to life.  He is so funny.  Such a little talker too.  He is doing great and is a big boy now!

Easter 2012

We had such a fun Easter this year.  We went to St. George on friday night and had such a good drive down, Cohen is finally starting to be good in the car!  We got to St. George around 9 and let the boys get in the hot tub and then went to bed.  Saturday morning Tage got to go golfing with the big boys for the first time.  I think he had fun, but TJ said he kept asking if they were almost done.  I don't think he realized golf was so long:)  While they were golfing Cindy, Cohen and I went shopping for a little while.  Then we met the boys for lunch and then headed out to get pedicures!  Todd and Christine got there later that day, we always love them to come and bring our favorite little Jossie!  We went to dinner and then headed to Fiesta Fun.  I wanted Cohen to go on the go-carts with Tj, but he ended up being way to small to go so he got to go on some other little cars and loved it.  Tage went on the go carts and did the bumper boats with uncle Tay.  It was actually a really fun night!  On Easter the kids got up early and got their Easter baskets from the easter bunny and then they had a huge easter egg hunt and each got a million easter eggs.  We had such a fun easter, lots of sun and pool time and fun times with our Allen fam.  We always have such a good time in St. George.  If only I could figure out a way to live there!!!
 Easter morning, getting ready to go outside on their Easter egg hunt!
