4 Months

The above picture was taken at Audrey and Addie's party, which was on Lissie's 4 month birthday...I couldn't resist the drool. Lissie will be 5 months in a couple of days, so it only makes sense that I am just now posting. Her are few things about our precious 3rd born.

*STATS (@4mos.): weight 14 lbs. 8oz., length 26in.
*smiles with her whole body
*goes to bed around 7 wakes at 5 to feed and then back to sleep until about 8:30...usually!
*rolls both back to front and front to only child to ever roll off my couch (tears on both end)
*loves to be held but wiggles like crazy
*smiles every time her daddy makes a turkey call
*just now started liking her carseat...yea!!!
*poops out of any diaper
*pinches when she grabs at things...especially skin
*can sit up alone for a short period of time
*sucks her thumb like her sister and brother
*plays alone well until she knows someones in the room


Before church this morning I found Kaylinn in the play room with 2 bags of chocolate chips, a bag of butterscotch chips (half eaten), and 2 ice cream popsciles eaten....needless to say she was running around and doing jumping jacks all morning; she crashed and burned by lunch. Fun, Fun!

Audrey and Addie's Birthday

We celebrated my nieces birthdays recently, and my sister in-law Ashley did an outstanding job! Audrey and Addie had a big top celebration that would make the Ringling Brothers proud.

Addie enjoying a birthday cupcake.
The other birthday girl, Audrey, with Matilda the clown. She was a hit!
Kaylinn, the pink took some talking in to, but she ended up loving it.

ARRRRR...John David is a pirate. He looks pretty tough with that smile.

Popcorn and snow cones for all. Kaylinn stayed pretty close to the sweets.

Lots of booths with fun games and prizes.

My kids had a blast! Happy birthday Audrey and Addie, and job well done Michael and Ashley!!!

Latest 2 Stories

Story One:
Kaylinn came to me with her pointer finger sticking out, "Mommy smell my finger." "No, Kaylinn. Why?" "Because someone tooted on my finger." which time we went straight to the bathroom and washed her hands.

Story Two:
We've been having some bedtime issues with Kaylinn. So as we begin the nighttime routine, we go over the reasons she can get out of bed, which is just to go potty. One night I walked by a noticed the bathroom light on, so I peek around the corner, and she is looking at herself in the mirror. I gave her a little pop on the bottom, which shocked her. She whipped around and without hesitation says, "I was just looking at my pretty blue eyes!"

Joihn David's 2nd Birthday

I'm least for the moment. Hopefully I'll post more soon, but don't hold you breath! We celebrated John David's 2nd birthday at the end of July. I cannot believe he's already 2!!! John David brings such joy to our family. Here are a few facts about our little man:
*uses his left hand mostly
*LOVES animal figures, balls, trucks, bacon, & climbing
*loves his sisters...even wipes the drool from Lissie's mouth
*sounds like a sailor when he says truck, sheep, & eyes
*wants to make up quickly
*gets the strangest injuries...he bruised the top of his ear somehow *has a sweet and gentle spirit
*gets embarrassed when you catch him dancing or singing...just like his daddy
*when he smiles he tilts his head to the side and usually laughs as well
*wants to hold your hand during prayers
*loves giving hugs & squeezes tight
*enjoys being read to; as a baby he didn't enjoy this activity so much
*doesn't stay with one activity for too long
*STATS: weight-26lbs. height-35in. shoe size 6 1/2-7

He enjoyed his favorite breakfast...eggs, cinnamon toast & of course, bacon.

We had JDT's party at our church gym. It was PERFECT!

Can you guess the theme?

We rented a bouncer, which the birthday boy wanted nothing to with, but the big kids had a blast.

Some of the mommies with the little babies.

Lissie up close.

Our family.

A little take home gift.

We love you John David and are so blessed to be your parents!
