Four months!

Dear Finley,

You are four months old!!! Four months of pure sweetness. You bring so much light and joy to our lives. You are in LOVE and awe of your big brother and sister. Your face lights up when you see them and you smile when you hear their names. You are pretty attached to my hip (and the feeling is mutual) and you give your daddy the biggest smiles. We love you so much.

You eat around six ounces at a time (give or take) every 2 to 3 hours. You have made your bedtime around 7 and sleep 10 or 11 hours. You are a rockstar sleeper much like your sister. And we are so very thankful baby girl.

You love your bouncy seat - you have gotten quite vocal when in it. You don't mind the car. You love your activity mat and the swing. But, honestly your favorite place is in my arms. :)

You are a little indifferent about bath time. You don't hate it, but it isn't your favorite. You like to talk non-stop after your morning bottle. After your bottle, you go back down for a few more hours and wake up so very happy.

You give out your smiles freely and people are enthralled by you. You really are just the cutest little thing!!!

You remind me of your big brother at this age, but I don't dare tell your sister because she thinks you are twins. :)

You are the piece that was missing in our family. I can't remember life without you in it. We love you so much baby girl.


Beautiful Days!

We have had some gorgeous weather lately!
This one loves the outdoors like the bigs:

I love watching the two of them together:

It is impossible to be in a bad mood when you are waking up to this pumpkin:

Soccer pow wow time at practice:

These two have quite the Christmas list going already:

Hudson asked for something to wear so he could have his monitor on him all the time. I was waiting for this to be his idea so I wasn't forcing it on him. I am so glad he was ready and asked. We both feel better all day!

Pretty girl:

I have tried telling her we don't do thumbs in this house but she refuses to listen! :)

Easter Weekend

We had a wonderful Easter weekend! And this pics are totally out of order, but there are way too many for me to try to fix it!
We dyed and painted eggs which the kids LOVE:

And Fin slept:

And Fin slept some more:

Saturday night the Easter bunny visited 3 very lucky kids:

My three loves:

Ready for the (very competitive) egg hunt!

She isn't sure what to think about all of this:

It was time to decorate the annual bunny cake:

And two littles kept sneaking m's:

Last year, we did confetti eggs for the first time and the kids LOVED them. The Easter Bunny brought them some this year and they had a (mostly) fun time cracking them on each other. Harper might have gotten a little emotional about it at one point, but alls well when Daddy lets you crack them on him!

Backing up to earlier in the weekend! On Thursday, we surprised the kids with a trip to Joe T's and the drive in!

It was our first time to the drive in downtown and we will definitely be back! We took the kids to see Home and they had so much fun!

Friday, Mal and I took Harper and Alan to Casa to see Cinderella:

And later that night I took Hudson's to his buddy's birthday party where he won 100 tickets!

Sweet Fin and I took a nap and it was lovely:

Trent and I escaped to celebrate my birthday a little late.  Big thanks to my mom for holding down the fort where things got a little bit crazy!

Before church - the cutest 3 around!

Loved celebrating this beautiful holiday with my wonderful family!!!
