Forde's 4 month stats...

  Ok my baby boy is already over 4 months old.... I can not believe how fast it goes by. It is absolutely  crazy, It has been so much fun with him he is the best baby ever. He sleeps 12 hours almost every night and never cries unless he is hungry, I have really been lucky with him. He is now rolling over and laughing so much. And the girls have been the best little helpers they love him so much!  Ok here are his current stats>

  Weight 18lbs 12oz
  Height 25 1/2 inches 
 I am not sure his head size.
 Clothes 9-12 months 

Yes I know he is a big boy and I absolutely love it that way.

    Isnt that super cute, I found him that way when I came into the living room where he was playing. I had set his bottle down to go in and feed him when my phone rang and I went to answer it, he has been grabbing everything and anything that is around him, apparently he couldnt wait for me to get out there...

   Today my girls started school! They were so excited and could not wait to go today. I was a little sad myself, especially when Ky said (Mom you dont have to come inside the classroom with me) she was not at all scared or sad to leave which made it even harder in a way and easier in others. 
    And then I think it was really hard for me to take my Lundyn, This year she is going to a different school than Ky and the past 2 years in preschool they have been in the same school so Ky has always been there to kind of look after her, I am very nervous about this because if anything happens, well Lundyn cant tell me. I am sure everything will be ok but I know I will always worry about her after everything we have been through with her.... Also Nate gave the girls blessings before we went this morning just so they can start this year off right, and I cant tell you how much better that made just me feel. 
   Ok here are some pics of them now.

 Ky in her class! (she was so  happy)

All about Forde!

 This is all about Forde today... My poor little guy is sick he has croup and it is no fun at all, and also very scary. I dont know if any of you have ever experienced this (ok so i know Maria has oh and cyd) but I was super scared and worried when his little cold turned into a cough and then to a point where he could hardly breath. I rushed him into the dr where they gave him a steroid shot and then put him on an air machine thing. Anyways needless to say I have not gotten much sleep since I was up worried and checking on him making sure he was breathing all night long. And of course he was but he still also has his cough and sounds horrible and I have to do treatments at home every 4 hours with the machine. So I took him back today and he is starting to get much better. I hope this doesnt happen to often though it really freaks me out, Here is a picture of my little man sitting in his new bumba chair, which I think is so cool. He certainly looks alot older than a 3 1/2 month old baby in it. Ok he is alot bigger anyways. When they weighed him today at the Dr. he was 18 pounds 4 ounces and just barely over 23 inches long. He is completly off the charts and has gained a total of 12 pounds 2 ounces and grew just over 4 inches since birth. I really hope he slows down just a tad I mean I love holding and squeezing him so much it is so cute, But I want him to stay a little baby for a while since I am still not quite sure if I want any more...

Makes me laugh!

Every night we have a routine for bed time. I get the girls in there pj's and they brush there teeth and I go in  to read them a book, I always say just one but it always ends up being like 2 or 3 sometimes more. But they always want more and more so every night after I shut the door and say good night I hear not even 30 seconds later the light flicker back on. And it is the same thing every single time, Well the picture tells it all.....

  So I go in and check (as if I dont know what to expect) and Ky gets a book for her and Lundyn then hops into bed with her and they will lay there for at least a good half hour after looking at more books. I just think it so cute the way they look every night and it just makes me laugh, because it never fails it is the same exact thing every night...

  Oh Ky loves her sister... I wonder how long this stage will last?

Fordes blessing!

 This past Sunday we blessed our son Forde, it was such a special day, I was so excited to get him blessed and Nate did such a good job. He was one of three babies getting blessed that day and he was by far the biggest. (also the cutest) I think maybe because he is over 3 months now, but we really wanted to wait until our family was in town for it. And I think it made it that much more special for us, We are so blessed with our son Forde he has been such a great addition to our family, and I am grateful for all my children and all the joy they bring to us. I just want everyone to know how awesome my husband is he is such a great example to me and our kids I am so grateful he was able to bless our son this past week, there is something so special about a father giving his child a blessing, I cant put into words how I felt at that moment. 
      I also need to give a big Thanks to all our family and friends who came out to support us on this day, and we had so much fun after just being together and hanging out with everyone at our home. I really love it when we all can get together. I have so many pic's from the blessing so I will be sure to put those on in my next post, so be sure to check back to see those later this week!
