Sweet pics of Colt and Julia

I just loved these pictures and I'm glad I caught the moment.  Colt and Julia were playing on an iPhone. 






I definitely see a future for these two:)

Addie is 5 Months!

Well, you guessed it, Addie is 5 months old!  I can't help but to think about our other child who is also 5 months older too...so sad.  Anywho, I took Addie to the doctor Friday to get her lungs checked...Bronchiolitis AGAIN...and she weighed 16 lbs 3 oz and is 26" long.  Colt was 3 lbs more than she is at this age...wow!  Love looking back and comparing and I'm so glad I kept up with it.  She has been so stinkin' easy!  I could literally take her anywhere and put her on the floor and she would be happy as a fat kid eating chocolate cake:)

I feel like I go on and on about what's new at the next month's update, but I don't feel like I have a lot of updates this time.

What she's doing now:

Eating 6 oz every 3 hours (about 5 bottles a day)
We haven't started solids yet...tried a couple of times but not ready to fight that battle yet:)
Size 2 diapers
Size 3-6 month clothes (so ready for the spring/summer wear!!)
Two good naps during the day (and maybe a small one right before bedtime)
Sleeping well through the night 7:30 - 6:30
Rolling over both ways - started rolling over in her crib at night to her back:(
Laughing a lot (it's so easy) - she laughs mostly at me and Colt
She doesn't talk too much which makes her that much sweeter
Has discovered another person living in the house - Josh!  She will stare at him like "where did you come from?"
She has found her feet and loves to hold one while she sucks that precious thumb
She's very aggressive at grabbing objects...wonder if she's going to be stingy?? No way!
Trying to sit up with her arm support - definitely doesn't like resting her head in her baby tub
Is putting everything in her mouth
AND gotta mention it...still has the ear hair...haha

Ok, I said there wasn't a lot but once I started thinking about it, maybe there is:)

Here's some picture of our sweet little girl at 5 months:









KK made this bubble for Ryder and I'm so glad Addie can wear it too!


Sweet head:)


Love you baby girl!

News update...

Colt is FULLY potty trained!  Whew, thanks to Nana praying to Jesus with Colt and Mrs. C at school being very firm and consistent with him.  We did it!!! Okay, THEY did it.  I didn't want to get my hands dirty...literally.  Gross!

Jesus, please help Colt go Poo Poo in the potty!!  He can do anything:)

SOOOO we promised Colt 2 things when he finally decided to "go" #2 in the potty:)

1. There's been a HUGE sucker waiting for him in the pantry and

2. Sleeping with Mommy and Daddy!!

We followed through with BOTH promises and he was pretty pumped...






Hilarious!

Worn Slap out....literally

This was from this past October, but I was going through some pictures and HAD to add this...once again...Colt is not going to be happy.one.day:)

We went to the Peanut Festival last fall (the big fair in Dothan) and stayed out a little too late.  One the way home, Colt fell asleep in the car.  Josh brought him in and partly changed his clothes and diaper.  He was completely and utterly worn out!

First he laid him down...still asleep

Then took off his pants...still asleep

Change the diaper...still asleep

Took off his jacket and put on some pants....still asleep

Changed SHIRTS....STILL asleep!
Poor baby:)  I love how Josh put a pillow under his head...hahaha!

One Sunday Lunch

We all got a kick out of the boys on this Sunday.  The Moss's, Cox's and us went to La Parilla to eat after church.  Canon and Colt have a love/hate relationship...sometimes they're on and sometimes their off...very off.  This particular day they were very ON!  Not sure who decided they were going to sit together...well, actually I think they did.  Here are some pictures of them during lunch...our sides hurt after laughing at them so much.




Taking a stroll

I didn't think I would be able to use this double stroller.  We have had it since Colt was itty bitty.  One of Josh's friends gave it to us and her mom got it at a yard sale for $25!  It's a very nice stroller and is so light even with two kids.  Both kids love this thing.  Not sure if we would make a long run but we did make it to the playground down the street and around the neighborhood.



Ryder turns 1!

Amazing, my little sister's, Rebecca, boy, Ryder turned one!  We had a little sock monkey party to celebrate...

I love this picture!

Party favors.  All the crafts were made by the cricut:)  We (I) had a fun time with this party.

Ryder's "1" sign...didn't get a picture of the final but this will do.


Cupcakes with topers.


Party hat...Elyse and I made this with the cricut.  It's so cute!

We made the smash cake too and added banana runts:)


Jon Jon made by KK...we are so lucky to have her because she makes the cutest stuff!

The food table

Cake time!  Thumbs up..haha!



Rebecca found out he had RSV on Monday:(





Troy was a BIG fan of the cream cheese ball.

Happy Birthday Ryder!!
