3.5 months

3 months is a milestone.
I don't have a newborn anymore.
We've already moved on to the next size of clothes and sitting up in the bumbo.

Life is full of smiles, giggles, and coos from this little guy!
I'm still so in love!

Cornbelly's with Cottrell's

My friend Katherine and I braved it...
the 2 of us with 9 kids total!
The older kids were fine.
It was the 4, 3 and under that were a little tough, particularly my 3 yr old.

yes, that cute boy has quite the attitude these days.

After all that play, we worked up appetites for burgers and fries at JCW's.

Passed Out

Weston has been the best sleeper until just recently he has started to fight me. He finally figured out that he can get out of the crib so we are just barely making the transition to a big boy bed. I walked out of my room the other night to find him passed out literally in the hallway...

It gave me a good chuckle.

celebrating three years

we started the day off with donuts...

then we went to the dinosaur museum at thanksgiving pointe as a family. we went once when avaree was little but weston had never been. it's kind of expensive i think but it was his birthday and he wanted to see dinosaurs!

hands on stuff is the best

someone walked by and said, "how old do they think they are?"

uncle trevor teasing the kids. avaree was really frightened.

weston is even more fascinated with sharks right now than dinosaurs. he has a shark stuffed animal that he sleeps with and carries with him everywhere.

after the museum, we went to olive garden for some pasta! weston's favorite dish is mac-n-cheese.

on his actual birthday- we had another bday dinner, blew out candles, and opened presents.

avaree put her own personal touches on this gift. she had so much fun helping me pick out gifts and wrap them. she is going to love christmas this year.

POP goes the sock monkey!

if you could only hear the sound effects that went along with this picture.

hot babe!

oh and we celebrated at grandmere's too.

grand grandmere knitted the kids these cute sweaters (thank you).

i love my three year old!
now it's time to plan baylee and griffin's birthdays...
