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!
 Love.this.boy!

 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!

I love those gowns for covering hands too- Bailey was trying to suck her thumb so she still sleep in them. So jealous at four months we still don't get that much sleep. . . .
