Two Months!!

This sweet boy is TWO months!! I can't believe how fast the time has flown by!!

He is the best baby ever... And we have good babies! I didn't think babies could be any better than Anna and Caroline! But- they can be! Case is sweet as pie! No fuss, no worries, no trouble!!
He is eating good, sleeping good, and growing good!!

Eats about 3 ounces every 3.5 hours and
Sleeps 3-5 hours in between feedings during the night!

He has had his first snotty cold but barely complains!
Basically I'm a much bigger baby than my baby!! 

Here is is new born picture with the baseball:

And at two months:

He wasn't so agreeable to the photo session this time :)

I'm kicking myself for not taking one with the baseball at one month!

Two months have gone by way too fast!! Won't be long before he's pitching that baseball!! 

Be back soon!

Bottle Warming!

Cloud Nine is beyond freezing! I didn't think Case's bottle would be room temperature after being in here. So...

I'm warming it the best way I know how.. Ha!
At least I know it isn't sweaty under there! :)

Cloud Nine

We have painters at our house today so we are killing time at Cloud Nine..

No rocks allowed in my house!

A rock meltdown!!

All I said was, "don't bring any rocks in the house!" (Because I find them everywhere if she does! She throws them all over the house!)

She had a meltdown!!

She is definitely in her terrible twos! Stubborn!!!!! i just told her she was being ridiculous  and to leave the rocks outside and come in when she quit crying. She stayed out there a good 5 minutes sobbing!

In other news.. This little man woke up. Got a bath, medicine, bottle and then threw up twice! Poor little bug feels awful!!

But still looks cute!

Case Report...

8 pounds 3 ounces
20.5" long

He is growing wonderfully- despite being in the -1%

He does have a little cold so he didn't get his two month shots... We will go back Friday for those as long a his fever breaks. Today he has just been catching up on the sleep he missed last night!

The girls have been super cute and sweet too!!

Happy Tuesday!

Memorial Day!

Hope Everyone had a happy Memorial Day!!

This is a picture of the 100th Infantry Division!

My grandfather "Big Ben" is on the top right!!
These men were of a strong, God fearing generation... I'm thankful for their strength and courage! Even though my grandfathers are not here to watch my children grow up, I only hope that Anna, Caroline, and Case will have the strength and courage and respect for God that they always had!

We had a fun very relaxing Memorial Day!
My parents were here til lunch and then we came home and ALL took long naps! Afterwards the girls played in the sprinkler and we grilled kabobs with Casey's aunt and uncle. 

Girls having a blast in the sprinkler! Caroline on the left, Anna on the right. (bc they look like twins!)

This little guy had a very rough Memorial Day with his first cold! Last night was no better. He spent the night taking turns "sleeping"(I use that term very liberally) in my arms or Casey's! Right now he is running a bit of fever but, we have his two month check up in a couple hours so... No worries!

Ill be back with a doctor's report!!

Circus in my house..

I'm letting them make a total mess and they are having a blast!

Keeping It Real!

Anna colored this during church on Sunday. She said it is a circus. In my opinion it is an amazing replica of what my brain looks like!
It is like a Jackson Pollock painting in my head. Thoughts splattered everywhere!
I'm a crazy person and I can't remember anything!!
"Three-kid-brain" is much worse than "pregnancy brain"! 
I have my own personal circus happening inside my brain not to mention inside my house!!

But..I wouldn't trade it for anything! I'm gonna frame Anna's picture to remind me everyday just how great I've got it!!

Swing Set!!

After he and his dad cut all the wood the other day, Casey worked so hard this weekend and...

we have this to show for it:

He started screwing it all together two nights ago...

Worked til dark!

Then today he put a long hard days work in and just about finished!

It still needs a ladder, a slide, and a few other fun accessories but, it's at least swingable now :)

And... Don't be fooled... I helped some!!

Needless to say, the girls are ecstatic!!

We will be out swinging all summer!!!

Isn't she adorable in her little cap and gown!!

Afterwards I gave them a little "Starting Summer" happy!
They were thrilled!!

My sweet boy!

I love our neighborhood! Especially in the summer when the weather is nice. Everyone gets out to play!! 

Here are some pics from our last few days outside in the neighborhood!!

Visiting with friends and family down the street!

The girls were thrilled to take maggie's pups for a walk!

Absolutely THRILLED! They LOVE all dogs and kitty cats!!

Popsicles on the way to the park!

Swinging at the park!
Then today we rode bikes to the park.

And of course we cannot leave out the little guy!! 

His little man cave... The stroller!! 
Sweet boy just sleeps during all of our neighborhood outings!! But, I don't think he cares too much :)

Dinner and A Movie!

Technically it is "dinner and an episode of Little House on the Prairie"

The girls were thrilled to get to eat supper in front of the TV! 
I'm flying solo tonight with the three kiddos so supper is Peanut Butter sandwiches, apples, and Chips :)

This little guy passed out right after his bottle! No "little house" for him :)
