Charlie is Four Months!

Our baby is 4 months! I will always remember Dr Benak telling me four months was his favorite age and I can see why. This once very high maintenance little fella is so sweet and easy now.  He just lights up from ear to ear if he gets just a glance from me or his daddy. And he's SO happy!

What he's doing now:

Weight - 15 pounds even. Still sitting in the 40th percentile. 
Height - 26" (65th percentile)
Size 3 diapers
3-6 month clothes
Eating - I try to give him 5 oz every 3 hours but he's going through a weird stage right now and not eating much. The doctor isn't worried about it.  He will drink a whole bottle once or twice a day then it's only 3-4 oz the other times. Mmmm
Sleeping - ugh. This one.  With his weird eating he's getting up twice a night. And I get him be use I feel like he's hungry! Usually 1 am and 4 am. I'm tired. 

New things - blowing bubbles, getting in the bouncer, started batting at items/toys

Likes - staring at mommy or daddy (or anyone for that matter), his play mat, blowing bubbles, bright lights and sounds, bath time, his car seat toy, his paci!

Dislikes - tummy time for too long, being sleepy...mostly happy happy happy! (Even with his new eating habits)

Christmas on the Farm

Christmas at Granny's!  And what a crowd, had a great time as usual with all the kiddos...I told Josh soon we will have a really good football game going on:)

The kids had a picnic (McDonald's) outside since the weather was so nice!  And notice, Blaine with the no shirt courderoy long alls.  Ha!

Football!  Justin's favorite.

There was a lot of rock throwing...and several of them ended up in Grandma's mailbox:/

Present time!

Sweet Vivi

Waiting so patiently.

Merry Christmas!!!

We're here!! Merry Christmas! Josh had the genius idea of putting BIG jingle bells on the doorknob of the playroom so we would know (or hear because it was loud!) if the kids tried to leave the room. And it worked!! They stayed in their bed all night long.

Charlie was the first to wake up at 5:15 am...thanks Charlie, so that last when mommy woke up too. I tried to get him to go back to sleep after he ate but that was a no go. So I tried to take some special pictures of Charlie for his first Christmas;) 

All he cared about was his hands...who needs toys!

By the time the kids got up at 7:30, Charlie laid down for a nap. 

They were so excited that Santa came!! 

Colt got a hover board!

Addie helped open Charlie's stocking 

Nana and Pops came to see the kids and make breakfast...a tradition;)

Neighborhood guys checking out the new electronics. 
Since it was 82 degrees we were in shorts and shirts today. It was HOT! 
Hover boards were the hot items this year. 

I asked Addie where all her new toys were going to go and she said 'right here' 

Monopoly Jr. 
And that's a wrap. Fun day, Merry Christmas!!!
