Abram: 4 months

Wow. How is it I am always behind? Perhaps we are having too much fun this summer?   Better late than never.  Now that school has started I am hoping to be much more diligent in documenting our family and lil sweet little boys milestones!

Abram at 4 months...

26in 11lb 12oz size 2 diaper 
You wear 0-3 mo & 3-6 mo clothes 

You nurse well every 2 hours.  We increased your feeding (and mama is eating like crazy) to help "beef" you up!
You have spent most of your days swimming or watching your big sisters play.  You follow them and laugh and kick your legs.  We all think you will be active early.

You welcomed in a new cousin, John Cooper.
Ayla 5, Ridge 3, Leah 3, Abram 4 mo

You attended a 5 day, overnight dance camp with Mommy & her team

The dancers all LOVED having you around!  We had a silly, yet successful week.
First time in your exersaucer.  Now one of your favorite spots!

You take a cat nap about every 1.5 hrs after you nurse and usually 1 longer nap each afternoon.
You are sleeping ok at night, but love to snuggle with mama.  Most nights you only wake up once to nurse, then back to sleep.

We enjoy you everyday big boy :)
So much of you is changing except that sweet, loving personality keeps on going!

School Days

1st day of school 2011
1st day of school 2012

Today was Ayla's first day of pre-K.  This year was prayed over so much as we were deciding on whether to send her to Kindergarten or wait until she was six.  I feel so blessed to have been able to make that decision with two of my close friends who's daughters are also two of Ayla's best buddies!  It is going to be a fantastic year.  I can already tell.

Feeling very blessed today...

July Happenings

Our annual French Lick Trip came and went really quickly.  We have traveled so much recently that lots of details are slipping my mind.  Though I do remember it was HOT.  We spent every moment in the pool.  Surprise ha  I didn't get my camera out as much as I should have, but I was enjoying our weekend away.  Jeff's cousin Faith and her family came to visit too.  Loved seeing her boys!

We had to leave French Lick only after a few days to get ready for our annual 4th of July party.  Always a blast!  Again, not a lot of pics. I only got one pick of my sweet boy, too.  Geez.  I have alot to make up for.

Hi There...

Its been awhile. 
Isn't he growin' like a weed :)

We've been watching a lot of Olympics lately.  And even enjoyed the watching some possible future Olympians.  On top of that Im gritting my teeth thinking summer is gone.  

In reality I am so ready for fall, but not quite ready for my baby to be back in school.

Oh well, such is life!  I have alot of catching up to do so hopefully school time will allow Mommy a little more computer time.
