Cole is 4 Months Old!

Cole is already 4 months old! He is growing like a champ! He weighs 16lbs 9 oz. He has his four month immunizations coming up next week. Poor, little guy isn't going to like that. Cole can now giggle. It's seriously the cutest sound ever! He loves bathtime! I took the sling out of the tub, which gives him more access to kick and splash. He LOVES to kick and splash. Cole is still not sleeping thru the night, which I'm ok with. I really don't mind getting up in the night to nurse him. I enjoy the bonding time.  I love him more and more each day!

Weekend with our Best Friends!

Gracyn, Caroline, Brooks, and Cole pretty much spent all weekend together! Friday night we celebrated G-rise's 30th birthday! We left the girls with Aunt Jeffie (bc we are smart!) and took the baby boys with us (they just sleep.) Shannon had Flying Burrito cater for dinner and it was delicious! Who knew Flying Burrito had FRIED BROWNIES?! They were amazing! Not to mention the fudge, cookies, and two cakes that were there! Us girls sat around and visited, while the guys watched the Cardinals and drank a few beers.
Clearly, the only way to get a good picture of these boys is to line up their carriers.
The next day, Katie and I had planned on taking the kids to Farmland Adventures. However, it rained so we were in search of another activity. We wanted to do something crafty with the girls and Jacqueline suggested Crafty Cottage! How perfect! We decided to stop for lunch at Western Sizzlin. Since we had 4 kiddos we decided to sit away from the general population. Probably a good thing, because the girls decided to put on a dance show for us!

How cute are they in their Best Friend dresses?!

Dance Party!
After lunch, we headed to Crafty Cottage!!! The girls picked out their clay pieces they wanted to paint.  Gracyn picked a lady bug and Caroline picked a horse. They had so much fun picking out their paint colors! Halfway thru their painting project, the lady did a nice job of up selling. She convinced Katie and I to do a Christmas platter with our kiddos footprints. Of course the girls wanted to help us do our painting so we had to convince them to pick out another piece of clay to paint! Gracyn picked a lizard and Caroline picked a pony! Meanwhile....the baby boys slept. We had planned on taking the girls to a new Mommy and Me Salon to get pedicures, but after several hours at Crafty Cottage we decided to do that another day! These Mommies were exhausted!

Fall Carnival

The other night we decided we wanted to get out of the house. We were going to try to go to the Apple Festival in Lincoln, but by the time we finished dinner I thought it was too late. So, we decided to go to the Fall Carnival at the rodeo grounds in Springdale. Gracyn had so much fun and Cole LOVED facing out in the moby. He couldn't get enough of the bright lights!

Here are just a couple of random pictures. This first picture is after gymnastics. Gracyn wanted me to take a picture of her and said, "This is how cool girls stand." I have NO IDEA where she got that! The two right picture are of Cole and me watching Gracyn at gymnastics. He loves to watch her perform! Then the bottom left picture is just too cute!!!!

Cole is 3 Months Old!

Cole is already 3 months old! How did this happen?!!! He is weighing in at a whopping 15.6 pounds! He can now roll over from his back to belly! I lay him on his back for bedtime and will come in to him laying on his belly. I can now hold him on my lap and he sits up looking all around. He LOVES to watch Gracyn play around him!!!!

This picture cracks me up....it's like he is just got caught doing something he wasn't supposed to be!
