It's been way too long since I've posted. Mostly because our computer is horrible. However, we finally purchased a new one!!! Yeah, hopefully I'll find time to post more. I just find it hard to post when I have my sweet Paizley to spend time with. She is growing up so fast! What a girl! What a kid! She really is so much fun to hang out with and her personality is just charming. She's a hoot and makes me laugh most of the day. She's also a talker. A very good talker. Pretty much says whatever she wants and what's on her mind. Funny story: some how she's learned the word boobs. Not sure how it happened, but it happened. I think it's probably because she touch herself and looks at me like, "mom what are these!?!" So I tell her. Is that wrong? I don't want her to feel like she can't ask questions, so I'm honest with her. Well, now she will find my bras and say, "boobs". Oh what's a mother to do! Sometimes she accidentally calls her boots boobs too. So funny. What a kid! I love her so much and don't think Craig and I have been happier. She really brings love, joy, and happiness into our home.
She also just got a big girl bed. Mostly because the crib was getting ridiculous to get her to sleep in. Also because we found out baby #2 is on its way, I'm only like 6ish weeks, so we wanted to get her use to the idea very slowly. She is use to having ALOT of attention. So when we told her we were expecting she said, "NO!!" I explained that it will be fun to have someone to play with and that she can help me change it's bum and feed it. She started to like the idea after that. She loves it at times and hates it at other times. Hopefully it will be a fun thing for her. Craig and I are really excited. We just know how much joy Paizley has brought into our lives and know this baby will do the same. Unforuntely, I've been SO sick with this baby. Throwing up, tired the whole gig. I finally got some medicine and it's really been helping. I'm wondering if this one is a boy. I never threw up with Paiz. We'll see I guess, but very exciting. If this is how you found out that we're expecting please don't be offended! It's so hard to tell everyone personally. We told family and that's really it. So don't be offended. We love you all and want to share the news with everyone but it can be so hard.
I've got some pictures to post that I will try and get up soon. But the Marvins are doing well and are just enjoying the news of the new baby coming and the beautiful fall weather.

What we have been up to lately

Like I mentioned awhile ago, my computer has been so weird lately so I haven't been able to post. Well, today I out smarted my computer! I realized it was kind of over heating so I put an ice pack under it while I've been on here and what do you know! It's been working great! Good thing too because I have alot to catch up on...we really have been up to some fun things lately. Here are just a few. The first group of pictures is of us camping for the 4th of July. This has been quite a tradition for our family the past few years and this year was even better because we purchased our first trailer and was able to take it with us! What a treat it was!

The new trailer!!! We got a sweet deal on it. It's super nice inside, everything works, sleeps 6, and even has a private master bedroom...Horray!

Paiz playing with her cousin and friend Jackson

Paiz, Jackson, and Jakell playin

Can you say DIRTY!! Paiz seriously looked like this 99% of the time. She couldn't keep clean and didn't want to stay clean either! She is alot less prissy that she appears!

The next group of pictures is from when we took our dog Hank to the Course Alure. It's a big dog show thing that more people go to than I ever imagined! Lots of fun activities for the dogs and fun to see different types of dogs. Here is Hank running through the course...he did pretty well for his first time! Go Hank

Dad and Hank getting ready for the race. Next year we will try the water jump. It was expensive and we wanted to train him alittle before we paid for him to do it. They just jump after a water toy into this huge pool of water to see how far they can jump compared to their size. Craig's uncle Keith's dog is the first in the state of Utah. We want to try and give him a run for his money!

Next are some pictures of Paiz and I doing her favorite thing...swimming. We go atleast twice a week. She loves it. And she is getting so tan...she has beautiful skin!

Snack time after the pool

The next group of pictures is us at the zoo. I got to go with some of my highschool friends and their kids. It's so fun getting together with them and their kids. Paiz needs more friends! She lives in such an adult world right now and just loves the chance to play with other kids. Here's us at our fun day at the zoo. She loved all the animals!

Yes, I forgot my stroller and had to rent one! CRAPY! But I wasn't going to walk through the whole zoo without one. Oh well, it all worked out!

All the kiddos

I took a picture like this when I was a kid at this same zoo, so I just HAD to take one of Paiz. She couldn't figure out how to hold her hands out there by herself, so I had to help alittle! Still SO cute!

Next are some pictures of when we went to St. George in May for our 4th anniversary. Can you believe it...4 years! It's really gone by so fast and I have really been so blessed and happy. Craig is the best. He's such a hard worker and wants to help others. He just has a big heart and I love him more and more each day! Love you babe, thanks for choosing me

Paiz came with us, we just couldn't leave her behind! We love this girl too much. But we had a great time all of us together. We stayed at my brother's the first night, went 4 wheeling, stayed at a hotel, went shopping, ate yummy food, played tennis and basketball, and did lots of swimming. Before we headed home we visited the St. George temple. Beautiful!

Although in this picture it doesn't look like Paiz loves swimming, she does! She would just jump right in to Craig. She would swim around kicking her legs too! So fun

Headed swimmin

Lastly are some pictures from Craig's sister Annette's wedding. It was so pretty and we were so happy for her and Payden!

Paiz supported that orange dress like a champ...we got so many complimants on it. What a cutie!

Paiz smiling because we're telling her to smile! Sometimes she closes her eyes, too funny!

Hey Everyone-
If you are thinking..."How are the Marvins?" "I wonder what the Marvins are up to these days" or "I just want to see more pictures of that cute little girl Paizley"... I apoligize for not posting as much. My computer is being really lame right now. It's being SO difficult and won't letting me download any pictures to it. Therefore, I'm really behind on posts. Sorry about that if you're a regular follower. Hopefully we'll be able to get a new computer soon. You never know how much you need it until you don't have it! Just know that we're all doing great, enjoying the summer, and Paizley is just as fun and cute as ever! Hopefully I can feel you in soon.

Love, Ky

This Easter was so much fun with Paizley. She loved all the candy and searching for eggs. We started off Easter Saturday at the city egg hunt. Paizley only got one egg. That was perfect for her though and she did it all by herself, unlike all the other kids! Then we had a party at my sister's place. We had yummy food and Paiz got to search for more eggs this time...she loved it! Her expressions when she would find an egg was priceless! That night we had more yummy food at my in-laws. The next morning was Easter Sunday and we let Paiz look in her Easter basket. She was SO excited. Christmas all over! She mostly loved the candy, but enjoyed her other things too. Then Craig did a short lesson on why we celebrate Easter. We showed her a picture of Jesus and told her that's why the Easter bunny comes to celebrate Jesus. We had to keep it simple and on her level! We finished it off with a yummy breakfast and day at church. Here's all the pictures from the weekend:

15 Months

Today was Paizley's 15 month check-up. I know I say this everytime, but I can' believe she's already 15 months! Good times. Here are her stats:

Weight= 20 lbs- 9%
Height= 2'6"- 33 %
Head= 76%
She still has a big head, but that's because she has such a big brain and is so smart! Still super tiny for her age too. That's ok, she's healthy and adorable and that's all that matters. She's right on track with everything and here is alittle about what our princess can do: loves books, drawing, playing outside, playing ball and catch, playing with animals, loves playing with other kids, can almost do a forward roll by herself (we might have a gymnast on our hands!),loves to dance and sing, make messes, and can say some words like mama, dada, wawa, please (in sign language), hot, eyes, Jesus (she really can!), and cheese. That's our girl and we love her so very much. xoxox

'I Do It Myself'

Paiz is all about doing it herself these days...EVERYTHING, but especially eating. She believes she is big girl who can feed herself. She is getting big, but not big enough to eat...well without getting completely messy. Oh well, this is one of those things as a mom I have to just let her do and don't worry about getting dirty. Believe me it's really hard, but she loves it.

14 Months

Here is Paizley at 14 months. One thing about her at 14 months is that she has SO much much that it's almost impossible to get her to hold still for a picture. We did get a few and that's why there are a few with mama...even thought she still wouldn't smile. She either won't smile or pulls huge cheesy smiles. What a cutie. 14 months has probably been one of my most favorite moments with Paiz. Her personality is really starting to show. She's starting to talk jiberish too and it's hilarious. Craig and I love to make up things that she's saying. She's recently learned to "wink", walk backwards, turn in circles, and balance on one leg. She gets so proud of herself...not to mention her parents! We really are so proud of her...she's gorgious from the inside out.

Isn't she the most gorgious thing! Such a doll
