Happy Halloween!!!

 A cute bride!
 Spiderman! Or, as Jameson says, "Piderman!"
 Gotta see Superbaby's cape!
 Love these kids!
And with their pumpkins that Daddy helped carve! Ok, he did all the work :)
Can't wait to trick-or-treat in the rain! Not! Kinda wished we lived in sunny California so we wouldn't have to wear rain coats over our costumes! Oh well!
 Happy Halloween!

Pumpkin Patch!

A few weeks ago, our family, my sister and her family, and some friends from church braved the weather to go to the pumpkin patch. Thankfully, by the time we went the rain had stopped and it was quite warm! Was just the perfect weather for us!
 I love this picture. Jameson was looking at something on the other side of this truck, and instead of going around the cardboard truck cut out, he just leaned in the he was talking to someone! At least that's how it looked to me :)
 Leandra and sweet baby Owen!
 Lily LOVES riding horses!
 Sisters with our boys . . . if you look closely you can see Colby's face!
 Yes, that's my adult husband riding on the horse that were for kids only! When he asked to ride them, they did have an adult horse for him to ride. He loved it.
 Sadly, this is our first family photo of the 5 of us and you can't even see Colby's face!
 Tractor riding

I love that Jameson is looking at AJ like, "what?!"
 Had to take a picture with Colby and this cow because they share the same birthday!
 See? :)
 Um....So, there was face painting there. And I saw they had a sheet of paper with little pictures the kids could choose from. Unfortunately, I was too busy talking to pay any attention to what was happening to Lily's face. When she turned around I gasped, and tried to not make a big deal of it! I asked her what she said to the gal drawing on her face and Lily said, "I told her I wanted to be a zebra." Doesn't look like a zebra to me! That poor girl probably had no idea what to draw for a zebra since it wasn't on their little color sheet. I gotta give her credit for trying though! And yes, I was a bit embarrassed to be seen with Lily :) It's kinda shocking don't you think?!
 All the kiddos!
 Jameson loves tractors!
 And since we couldn't see Colby's face in the pumpkin patch pictures, here he is! I was trying to take a picture of his little brother shirt and trying to make him smile all at the same time.
 Almost a smile! You can see a little bit of his cute dimples!
There's a smile! He has smiled bigger ones but they are hard to get on camera! Mainly because I never have my camera around when he smiles! Love that boy!

1 Month!

Our sweet Colby is 1 month (and 1 day!) old!! I am sure I'll be saying this every month, but I can't believe how fast this month went!
A few highlights of Colby at 1 month:
*WAS sleeping through the night for a long time. But, ever since last weekend when he and I went to our church's women's retreat, he has regressed! Stink! He only wakes up once, which isn't horrible. But, it makes me miss the 8 hour stretch! Hopefully, we will get back to that point sooner than later!
*Still in NB diapers and could be in NB clothes if his legs weren't so long! He is just so long and skinny! So, lately I've been putting him in 0-3 month clothes and they're a bit baggy on him!
*I got him to smile for me for the first time last night! Of course, my camera was no where to be found and it was so quick I'm sure I wouldn't be able to catch it on film. But, it was the sweetest thing and he has 2 dimples that are so stinking cute!
This is Jameson at 1 month old who is a bit chubbier than Colby! But, I actually see some resemblance in the boys!!
We love our sweet Colby!!

Life at Home

Colby is now 3 weeks old and I think we are finally getting the hang of being a family of 5! I also still can't believe I haven't talked about Lily's first day of Kindergarten! My mom is the one who took Lily's pictures on her first day (since I was in the hospital!) so as soon as I get those pictures, I will talk about her and school! Here's just some snap shots of life at home with 3 kids!
 Snoozing away in the swing
 Can you tell this girl LOVES her little brother?!

 Jameson has done so well with him too! He has yet to try and hurt him! Praise God!
 Yes, he may look like a girl, but I love these gowns for middle of the night diaper changes!

 First bath at home...he hated it!
 All clean!

 Cousins!! 1 week old Colby with 3 month old Owen (my sister Leandra's son!) So fun!
His eyes look a little creepy here, I think he was trying to sleep, but I love how he looks like a little old man in his tie shirt!
 My 3 kids!!
 Soo sleepy.
 Is it just me or does Jameson's head look GINORMOUS next to Colby's?!!
 Yay! Uncle Joel and Auntie Katie came to town to meet Colby!
 With their nephews! Seriously, isn't Owen's hair the best?!
 And my sweet Jameson riding around with his bear.
 Gotta love self portraits :)
I was practicing using my moby wrap and I think he likes it! Plan on using that this weekend when I go to Portland for our church's women's retreat!
Colby is an amazing baby. I hope that I'm not jinxing myself when I say that! He is sleeping through the night. I'm not kidding. He has been doing this since he was 10 days old. I keep waiting for it to end, and it may end sooner than later! But, for now, I'm enjoying getting 8-9 hours of sleep! And don't worry, I got the ok from Colby's dr. to allow him to sleep the night away! He is gaining weight too! As of last Friday he was 8 lbs. 8 oz! He sleeps great in his car seat and is flexible when we have to go places-like, picking Lily up from school. He isn't the best napper when we're at home. If we are out and about he sleeps great in his seat, but at home, we're struggling a bit. If I held him all day he would nap great! But, definitely can't do that while taking care of the other kids! We're figuring it all out :) So thankful for this sweet addition to our family!
