My first blog

I am not sure what to say except that I am excited to start this blog.  I intend to use it to document our family, its growth, the funny things our kids say, our travels, etc.  I have enjoyed keeping up on other people's lives through their blogs and hope that I can use this to return the favor.
My life is basically consumed by two children.  Nick spends most of his time working and serving as the elders quorum president.  This leaves me with Bethelle and Rigby a lot.  I really love them, but it is a constant struggle to find ways to break the monotony.  
Bethelle is practicing her counting lately.  We recently made a break-through when I thought to count edible things.  She is very accomplished on the computer and has her own Mac.  
Rigby is almost 3 months now.  We just moved him into Bethelle's old crib, as she has moved on to her Garden Room.  I'll have to post pictures of that when I take them.  Rigby seems to be sleeping better away from us, and so am I.  Let's hope this continues to improve.  He is a very pleasant baby.  He has the biggest mouth when he smiles!  Even when he seems inconsolable, if you just take him in the bathroom and turn on the bath water, he will coo and love you like he was never sad.  The bath tub is his favorite place to be.
As I figure out better what I am doing with this blog, I will post pictures and be more interesting!
