Ice Skating

We left the boys at home and had a little date night with our girlies. We took them ice skating with some friends of ours. The girls hadn't been in a couple of years, but caught on rather quickly. Being that it was the middle of the week, the crowd was really low. It was perfect! It was also pretty warm outside so it wasn't unbearable if they fell and got their hands and jeans wet. Fun was had by all!

Hill Country Weekend

We spent New Years weekend with my whole family in Wimberley. My brother and his family just recently moved there. They are renting a beautiful home on 47 acres in the Texas Hill Country. We had so much fun! There was plenty of room for all of the cousins to run around. The weather was perfect when we arrived on Saturday. We took family pics, played outside, walked around Wimberley's fun little town, fried a turkey, made s'mores, and just soaked up lots and lots of family time!

Exploring the land...

Family pics...

Pappy's fried turkey...YUM!!!!

Hanging out...

A COLD front came through on Saturday night. It didn't stop the kids, though! They ran around and played with the dogs Sunday morning before we packed everything up and headed home.

It is so great to have a fun little "retreat" to visit. :) Can't wait until next time!

4 Months

Rhett is 4 months old today! I dropped my camera last week and broke it. :( So, I had to take his monthly pics with my iphone. They aren't best, but he's still a cutie!

Here is a little of what he's up to...

Weighs 15lbs. 12oz. (as of last week)
Size 2 diapers
3-6 and 6-9 month clothing
Nurses what feels like constantly! But, prob really only every 3-4 hrs.
Still HATES his car seat
Has had 3 ear infections and croup
Chews constantly on his hands
Doesn't suck on his fingers anymore and really doesn't take a paci
Cat naps throughout the day
Goes to bed at 10:30ish at night and sleeps anywhere from 5-7hrs.
Smiles ALL the time
Laughs out loud
Talks constantly and loudly
Almost rolling over (back to stomach)
Loves his play mat and swing
Grabs everything within reach

I think he looks so different in all 3 of these pics.

Conn calls him a little koala bear. When you hold him, he snuggles right up to your face and holds on.

This was his birth announcement that we sent with our Christmas card. Love those big ole blue eyes and kissable lips!

Now that he is getting bigger, I can dress he and Cash alike sometimes.

Almost rolling over.

He LOVES watching t.v.

When he was sick, he got these really rosy cheeks.

He is almost always this happy!

Happy 4 months, precious boy!
We love you!
