3 Month Bloopers

3 Month Stats


It is now 2 months later, and this Momma feels terrible that she never got around to her baby boys three month statistics.  But I can tell you a few special things about him that must be mentioned:
*  River's breath smells like buttered popcorn flavored Jelly Belly's!  Really it does!
* When River smiles, his eyes smile too:)
* When River looks in the mirror with someone else, he looks at the person beside him and not himself....we think he is going to be a little guy who thinks of others first.
*River's laugh is really more of a chuckle;)

Santa Clause 2011

Boxes Are Bomb!

Stuck

Laken let out a little whimper from the living room and this is how I found her.....stuck in her drum!

An Old Friend

Laken was surprised to see her old friend the bumbo out and about again. Secretly I think she enjoyed all of the attention her brother got from sitting in it;) Shortly after breakfast she tried it out and had a blast! And for the past several days she has been testing it out for a little bit each day.....even though it is much too small for her;)

Bumbo 1st!

Riv sat in the bumbo for the first time this week at 3 months old! He really liked it, and even got to sit up with us all through breakfast on the table! When it was time for a sibling picture Laken really wanted to hold his hand;)

Jolly Good Fellow

Adorable right.....I can't get enough of the little man's smile! ~3 months and change

The Secret Cupboard

I found Laken the other afternoon playing in the cupboards! She was so cute, and I marveled at her while snapping pictures as she worked so hard to shut herself inside. She kept getting a foot or a finger stuck! She finally accomplished her goal and spent the rest of the time playing peekaboo with me.

Grandma Ivy's 57th!

We celebrated Grandma Ivy's birthday at the house this year. Laken helped her blow out the candles, while Riv watched!

Sweet Boy

Laken also wore this sweet little bear suit last winter......aaaaahhh slow down time!

Pistol and Magnum

We certainly have our hands full with these two!

Christmas Lights at Locomotive Park

We took the kids to Zany Graze tonight (a new favorite) and then to Locomotive Park as our family date night this week. The Christmas lights were beautiful and Laken loved running wild to the Christmas music and lights. She threw a toddler tantrum (kicking and crying) when it was time to leave. River was all bundled up in a fleece blanket and slept through the whole thing:) I think that we may have to come back a few more times this month!
