This week!

This week both my kids have colds so I'm trying to get them to do a lot of this…... 

We are planning a week long road trip in June and making our summer calendar.  School and swim lessons are almost over. We are trying to stay cool in this hot weather and enjoying the long days.  How are spending your days this week? Not wiping noses I hope!

Everyone always said how much Makayla looked like me as a baby and now they say how much Jackson looks like Steve! I totally agree but it is amazing how much they look like each other. 

They both have there uniqueness but WOW they really do look a lot alike…Good thing I don't have to worry about Jackson being cute when he gets older if he is like his sister he will be just fine!  Lets just hope he is a little calmer at her age then she is! 


Jackson 3 months

Makayla 4 months
Jackson almost 4 months

Cutting Grass

Is there really any other way to cut the grass then in a little black dress, pink rain boots, and a pink glitter head band?

Ohh why yes you could add sun glasses but I didn't get a picture of that. Makayla adores Steve and wants to be a part of everything he does! 
I love these pictures of them making memories!!! 

WOW Feet

Look who has found there feet!

4 months old already

Jackson you are 4 months already! Wow has the time flown by.  You are growing up so fast and have been such an amazing part of our family. At 4 months you are doing so many things. You are finally sleeping in your own room (though you are still waking up at 4:00am to nurse) unswaddled. You are rolling both ways. You are putting EVERYTHING in your mouth. You started sitting in the exasaucer. You LOVE your Mom more than anything!

You are still nursing very well and gaining weight perfectly! I think you are about 13lbs! You started rice cereal (you hate it) so I started using oatmeal (you like it a little better) You have tried, peas, carrots, apples, and sweet potatoes. You seem to like all of them.  You are starting to sit up on your own, though still VERY wobbly.

You don't like the car seat very much, but you love to go for a walk. You sweat all the time (boy thing I guess) You found your toes and love holding them and putting them in your mouth! You are sweet and very calm natured. You only fuss when you are hungry. You don't spit up much if at all.

I love the way you light up when I come into a room. You seem to say "Mama" when you want to nurse or haven't seen me in few minutes. I love the bond we have already created.

Your sister adores you! She loves to play with you and make you smile. You are always watching her and you seem to just want to get up and play with her. (Soon enough)

You enjoy watching TV (sports) with your Dad! You boys relax in the evenings. Its so sweet!

 Look how much you have grown! 
You smile and laugh all the time! I absolutely love spending my days with you.

Swim Lessons

Swim lessons have not been an  easy thing for Makayla! She has never liked putting her face in the water. With each lesson she is getting better and better. As of now she can swim about 5-7feet float and swim on her back, and dive down to get toys! I also feel confident that if she did happen to fall into the pool she would be able to make her way out which was my number one concern!

getting better and better

Big Sister, LIttle Brother

The love these two have for each amazes me! Makayla  adores Jackson she is always so thoughtful of making sure her little brother is part of everything. She loves being a BIG Sister! 

Watching Saturday morning cartoons in mommy and daddy's bed

Jackson Loves Makayla…he smiles and giggles any time she is near. He looks around when ever he hears her voice! These two are best buds…I can only hope it stays this way!
