Think Pink!
So as previously noted the big news for us this month was to find out we are having a baby girl. It still hasn't quite sunk in for either of us that come July it's going to be all about PINK! Jason, having grown up in a house with all boys is especially thinking about what the change will be like! He will gladly welcome any tips!

We thought really hard about a few names and came to a decision with Olivia Jane LeCheminant. With a last name like ours a few we liked just didn't "roll off the tongue" but we really love Olivia. Jane is a shout out to Jason's mom, Jan, who will now be the proud Gram of two LeChem girls within the next few months!
Mo has really started to get on board with the idea of having a baby sister. He will gladly belt out her name for you and we know he is going to be a great brother. He will go to her room and point out everything as "Livi's bed" and "Livi's light" and "Livi's chair".

(Hopefully this one actually works. Sorry to anybody who couldn't see the last video.)

Happy To You Mo!
On the 4th we celebrated Mo's 2nd birthday. Leading up to that day he would walk around the house and sing "Happy to you, Happy to you" and it was a lot of fun to have all the families over for the occasion.

He currently has an obsession (that's an understatement) with horses so it was no surprise most his presents were related to that. The hit of the party was an old spring mounted horse that Mo's uncle Nic found for him. He wasn't sure of it at first but by then end of the night he was riding it like a pro.

The last Saturday of the month was just warm enough for the boys to hit the range after a long winter. Check out this guy's form! Probably not the last hours these two will spend with each other on the range.

P.S. Jason is beyond proud of these pictures!!!

Look Alike
Going through the pictures this month Jason saw a few funny resemblances that made us laugh. See what you think!
Can you say Marty McFly?

The Golden Toad or The Golden Bear?

Book Worm
These three pictures are ones we took this month but we have about a dozen just like them. With kids this age when there is an extended period of silence at home any parent's mind goes to the thought that their little one is up to no good, but all the time we will go back in his room and find him there reading so we quickly grab the camera to snap some candid shots.

His favorites right now are The Story of Ferdinand, Caps for Sale, Little Black Sambo, Harry the Dirty Dog, Big Red Barn, The Big Hungry Bear, the illustrated Book of Mormon (he loves "Ne-five") and any book about dinosaurs.

Wow you guys have had a fun month! Jeff is finally worried about adding the "PINK" to our house when I did the wash this last weekend. Actually the idea of having something so small around the house just seems so crazy! We try to webcam with mom on Thursdays when she has Mo, Trey loves hearing Mo say 'Triple'. Hope you are feeling good Ari!
