Mason is 4 months!

I can't believe how fast the past four months has been... Mason has been such a blessing to our family.. The kids adore him ... Logan is the best big brother he is always making sure I know where and what Mason is doing. Rosalyn tells me everyday just how cute Mason is ( the fact that they look so much alike is what I love) and Audrey just wants to cuddle him and kiss him...
Mason weighs 14lbs 15oz and is 25 3/4in long! He is in the 90% for height and 55% for weight. We think he is just perfect!
Things you are doing:
Wearing size 2 diaper
Wearing 6 month clothes
Nursing every 2 hours
Sleeping from 7:30~1:00 or 2:00 ( sometimes I get lucky and you will sleep until 4:00)
Smiling like crazy, all the time anytime we talk to you.
Just this past week you started to giggle and coo so much!
You love to play in the jumper and the saucer.
You sit in the Bumbo while I cook and do dishes and just love to watch me.
You sleep on your belly and started rolling over to your back.
You LOVE your binky
You kick your feet and most of the time it looks like your trying to run somewhere!
You do not enjoy your car seat AT ALL ( we are trying to make it more enjoyable!)
You love the church nursery, having everyone love on you!
Happy 4 months baby boy!

The days of my life...

I honestly don't know where the time goes. I feel like I don't have enough time in the day for anything. Having 4 kids with 2 being under 2 it has really to say the least rocked my world! I wouldn't change it for anything!! We have been very busy around here, now that we are in the house we are trying to do projects each weekend. I finally have some things hung and organized... The girls are doing wonderful in school. We just had their parent/teacher conferences. Audrey is excelling in Kindergarten and Rosalyn had a great report for 3rd grade A's and B's for my sweet girl!

Wow, where does time go??

It has been so long since I posted. I have been holding off because I couldn't find my camera I found it but now I can't find the cord.. Still searching through the move! A ton has been happening, we have moved and are trying to get settled. It has been almost four weeks and I am still unpacking. But to my defense Ben is gone through the week, we were in Kansas City one weekend, and we have had company every other weekend ( which I love because its our family we don't get to see often!!) And taking care of the boys is work!

So some updates: Logan is sleeping in his big boy bed!!! We set it up the first night we moved in the house but we also put the pack-n-play in there. We just put the crib in Mason's room because I didn't want to confuse Logan more than he probably already was. So he didn't even sleep in the bed for the first week, after that he would start there and end up in the pack-n-play =) Well this past week has been wonderful, he is napping in there and also sleeping there at night. And to top it off we don't even have to lay with him anymore!! I'm so proud but also sad at the same time, he is such a big boy! Also he has been going potty a few times, I'm not pushing anything at all.. He thinks it is fun.

Audrey is doing wonderful in school. She has adjusted well! Rosalyn is doing great too, I just can't believe she is in 3rd grade already. She is growing up before me and it is just too fast!! She is really coming into her own this year!!

Mason is growing so much, he will be 3 months next week! I think this has been the fastest 3 months ever. He is such a sweet baby, his smile melts my heart!! We put him on previcid about a month ago for his reflux, it has helped a ton. He is still my little spitter!! His little dimples are precious.. I will say my I can handle anything attitude has been tested these past few months, having boys 19 months apart has defiantly been a challenge, but I love my boys and wouldn't trade it for anything. Being home with them during the day is the most amazing job ever!

On that note Logan is such a sweet brother. Anytime Mason is upset Logan will make sure I know and he will lay by him rub is sweet head and say in is precious voice "its k baby" Oh how I love that!!

Well that's all for now, I'm exhausted and I have to price garage sale items and get the house ready for the in-laws this weekend...

Big Truck


Now that I am staying home with the kids I have also adopted another little one! My friend Kelli just started a new job as a school nurse and needed someone to keep her little guy Jackson, so I am. He is so much fun and Logan just loves him. They play so well and Logan is so gentle and loving with him. I have to load him up with us to take and pick up the girls from school. Well he is still in a infant seat so I always take Mason in first then come back for Jackson, the entire time Logan stands by the car screaming "yay yay" that is what he calls Jackson! Here are some pictures of what most days are like!

House... its coming along!

Align Right

Wow the house is really starting to come together. Ben has spent many, many long nights even overnights working on our amazing home! I am so thankful for his dedication and hard work. We have also had some amazing friends helping as well. It seems like it has been forever but really it was only 6 short months ago that he started!! Well I went tonight wanting to get some pictures of the awesome cabinets but they had the kitchen cabinets covered because they are going to paint tomorrow.
So here is a sneak peek at the girls bathroom!

Fireplace Mantel, I love it Ben really captured my vision!
