One Month!

(For size comparison)

My thoughts on the transition to 3 so far: Lots of time and work? Well, yes obviously. What newborn isn't? But really, what would I have done with out these 2 And I don't mean the monkey on Dude's back (pardon the pun).Elyette scooped her up when she was crying last night and sang her to sleep (a song she made up:)). It was pretty sweet... and HELPFUL!

Ah, yeah... I have some pretty GREAT kids!

Elyette: Mom, what's it called again when animals sleep in the morning and day and awake at night?
Mom: Oh, nocturnal.
Elyette: Oh yeah... Charlotte's nocturnal.
Cute animal :)

What's it called when someone gets almost no sleep?...

Farewell to Ray

On Wednesday, April 14th Boz's little brother Ray left on his mission where he will serve as a missionary for our church for 2 years in the Texas McAllen Mission, Spanish speaking. Wednesday morning he flew to Salt Lake City to report to the Missionary Training Center (MTC) in Provo where he'll be for the next 2 months. If you feel so inclined to send some encouragement his way is address there is:

Elder Ray Millar
mtc box 274
tx-mcal 0616
2005 N 900 E
Provo, Ut 84604

When I explained to Elyette that she'll be about 6 1/2 years old when Ray gets home, she realized how long it will be before she sees him again. At random she'll say "Mom, I'm going to miss Ray". She adores her uncle Ray and is very excited for him too. Jack also LOVES Ray and has been talking all week about him becoming a missionary and how he's going to be a missionary too! He's pretty excited himself.
We got to see Ray off at the airport and Jack ran after him for one last hug (and almost got grabbed by security when he started to take off running when he saw me coming to retrieve him). When ever we hear a plane Jack exclaims "That's Ray!".

We are so excited for you, Ray. Thank you for you wonderful example. We'll miss you. You're in our prayer! WE LOVE YOU!

-Boz, Maegan, Elyette, Jack, and Charlotte
(PROOF- Boz gave Ray a "real" hug)

Want Some More?

Here ya go Auntie Brooke :).... and everyone else who was thinking the same: "More Charlotte pics PLEASE"
We thought Charlotte looked an awful lot like Elyette when she was born (and not just because of the squished nose). Although there are obvious differences of course (like HAIR for example :)), we still think she looks a whole lot like her big sister. Still to early to tell if she got daddy's crazy eyebrows like Elyette, but that is for sure my nose.
We hear a lot of high pitched "OH, Honey... its okay sweetie" etc. around here. They love her! So do I!
And we're out... more to come soon.
