Sophie's 3rd Birthday Party

We had Sophie's 3rd Birthday Party at Larry's Pizza on Saturday. It's one of her favorite places to eat and play!! We had a great time and Sophie loved her little party.

Her invitation that Tadd made.

Sweet Sisters

Playing games

Gabby and Ginger were able to join us for her Party and a visit for a few days. They had to get in on some games. Gabby wanted to play Deal or No Deal

Daddy had to join in on the fun with the games too!

Sophie loved opening the presents!

Coach and Gram gave her a new four wheeler and she hasn't stopped riding it yet!

Gram made all of her good cookies and cupcakes for the party. They are so good!

She made the cute cake too!

Sophie was precious blowing out her candles!

It took several tries...

It was a fun party, I wish I had a picture of the whole group, we had a lot of fun eating pizzas and playing games!

Sophie Sue:
* You are such a funny little girl and we love you so much!
* You love to eat and your favorites are turkey and cheetos.(A request from Santa for Christmas) You also love chocolate cake and want chocolate cupcakes for your Birthday party.
* You are a great Big Sister and love to help me with your baby brother. You call him "Bubba-Do" and love to try and make him smile and laugh.
* You are very good with electronics and your favorites are the ipad and our iphones. Watching Netflix on them is your latest new hobby. You have even rented movies that have been mailed to us without us knowing.
* You are also a good little sister and love to play with Ella and pester her.
* You love being in Gymnastics and hanging on the bars. Your weekly goal in class is to "listen to your teachers" so you can get a stamp and a piece of candy after class.
* You have been running around all day saying "I'm 3" and holding up 3 fingers. You called yourself my "Birthday Baby Big Girl" all day. We spent your Birthday all day together having lunch with friends and then went out to Copelands for a family Birthday dinner. You wanted to go there because of the Chocolate Cake we had there before and you call it the "Chocolate Face Place."
* You are very excited about your Birthday party this weekend and eating cheese pizza and playing. It's so hard for me to believe my baby girl is already 3, it goes by too fast, but you will always be my baby!!

Seth-3 months

Our sweet boy is 3 months old today. He is growing too fast and this month seemed to fly by. We took his monthly picture today on his rocker next to his little sock monkey. I can never choose just one pose so here are several cute ones.

This month you are:
*Smiling and cooing a lot you have become more expressive. You are also laughing this week, especially when we tickle you, it's precious!
*You are a very sweet and happy baby.
*You are now sleeping ALL night in your bed in your room:) You have been doing this for several weeks now and we are loving it! (Although I do miss you being beside me in your bassinett-you were getting too big for it.)
*You nap several times a day, for now after every time you eat still. You will take naps about anywhere and take a long morning nap one hour after you wake up.
*You are still on a good Babywise schedule of feed, wake, sleep.
*You nurse every 3 hours during the daytime. It is typically around 8,11,2,5,8,11 for your feeding times and you have had 3 bottles now and took them well.
*Your Prevacid for reflux is helping but you still spit up a lot, but are no longer fussy or upset after you eat:)
*Wear size 3-6 month clothes
*Wear size 2 diapers (just now)
*Weigh close to 14 pounds now, not sure about height until your next Drs appt.
*You love your bouncey seat, swing, boppey pillow and bath time. You also like your play gym mat for a little while. You are starting to grab onto things and hold things.
*You move your arms and legs a lot and love to chew on your hands this month!
*You seem to love your big sisters (or tolerate them well). They love to play with you and try to make you laugh. (I wish I had taken monthly pictures and written all of this down with them!)

We love you so much!

He's ready for Summer too and starting to swim:) Look at those arms moving!

He has really started laughing more this week. He may have a big gut giggle like both his big sisters did, I love it! I will try to video it and post it later this week, it's so cute!!

He just loves to grin as he looks up at his daddy!

Valentines Day

We had a fun and simple Valentines Day this year! The girls and I woke up to flowers and teddy bears from Tadd. I went to Ella's Valentines Party at her school and enjoyed getting to see my big girl in her classroom with her teacher and her friends. Then we headed to the girls Gymnastics classes while Tadd cooked us a good steak and scallops dinner that we all ate outside next to our new heater and candles. ( My husband is so sweet!) Then I managed to finish off the whole plate of chocolate covered strawberries from Gram-yum! The weather was so nice today! Tadd and I went out to Dinner and a little shopping on Saturday night for our "Date night" despite what Seth's shirt says. We just took this sweet baby boy with us!

The flash of the camera caught him! I thought his little shirt was funny!

Ella's Kindergarten class posing for a picture with their ice cream sundae's they made.

Ella is getting so big and smart! I love this picture of her, you can see her little sprinkle of freckles on her face. She is the sweetest big sister and is so patient with Sophie, (who is requiring lots of patience lately) and Seth!! She is a very good child!

I can't believe I didn't get any pictures of Sophie today. This could be because she is going through a phase of wanting to be held a lot. She said some of the cutest, funniest things today though. She called the card that Tadd left out for her this morning her "Happy Valentines Day." She continues to keep us laughing all of the time, I can't believe that she will be 3 soon.

Ella's Haircut

The week before the big snow storm Ella had a big hair cut! I think she had at least 5 inches come off. It was getting pretty long. I think it looks pretty cute and it definitely looks healthier and thicker. We still have enough for a pony tail when softball starts soon. Here are some after, before, and during hair cut pictures. She was really excited to get it cut and has wanted it cut for a while now but I kept putting it off. She is quite the little poser as you can see!

Winter Wonderland

This week we had a big snow storm. It started on Wednesday and snowed all day, close to 8 inches later we were out of school and in the house for the rest of the week! We had a great time mostly staying at home and inside out of the cold. The snow was pretty but the girls usually prefer to stay inside. We played lots of Wii Dance and ate a lot of food and cookies! Here are some of the pictures on Day #3 when we ventured out to sled and attempt a snow man.
