7 Months!

Time is marching along, and our Jonathan is now seven months old!  He's still a happy boy and seems to become even more content as his skills develop.  He is scooting along on his tummy to reach things he wants and babbles "ga ga ga."  I'm still his favorite, but Daddy continues to be the nap master.  A new development this month is our normally easy baby decided that he will no longer take a bottle.  Ugh!  So much pressure on me!  We started some pureed food with little success.  Time for patience.  (We're still being patient with sleep, too; no break-throughs there).  Yes, we love our little J. Scott!

Florida Adventure

Who says I'm not ready for excitement or adventure?  Guess what, taking three children on a vacation is certainly an adventure, and that's just what we did for my birthday.  And what a delightful break from Illinois winter it was!  We played outside, went to parks, enjoyed Grandma's pool, put our toes in the sand at the beach, rode in the boat, ate ice cream and donuts, and just enjoyed.  Thanks to Poppy and Gigi for all their help.  (Turns out it's a lot of work to vacation with three young children.)

Six Months

Happy half birthday Jonathan! 

While we were on vacation, Jonathan turned six months old.  I can hardly believe it's been half a year with our sweet little boy.  As time passes, we enjoy him more and more.  Could there be a happier, easier baby?  (Don't ask about sleep...)


More later about our great Florida adventure!

Five Months!

It's been quite the month around our house.  All five of us have been sick once or more, even poor Jonathan.  Poor thing didn't let a nasty cold hold him down.  He's rolling all over the place and as happy as ever.  We love this little blue-eyed boy!

We're looking forward to the end of February and a family trip to Florida in March.  Wish us luck!

Four Months

We've made it to four months, and the smiles keep coming!  Jonathan is a charmer for sure.  During the past month, he's been doing some rolling over, some squealing, and not much sleeping.  It seems like we're coping better with a sleepless baby than we did with Forrest.  Someday we will sleep again.  Until then, we're enjoying our happy baby around the clock!

We have a two-year-old around here now!  We celebrated with a purple party a couple of weeks ago.  Here are a few pictures of the day.

What's not to enjoy about our two-year-old girl?  Yes, our little Charlotte, or Lovie as I usually call her, is a bubbly, happy, stubborn, sweet girl.  She loves to do what Forrest does, she loves to say "no," and she loves mischief.  We're so glad to have her!

A few pictures from our Christmas celebration last week.  It was a different kind of day than usual.  Lucy was born about a month ago, so Kati and Ryan stayed in Arizona, and Shaun and Bill were in Michigan.  We had a nice time despite the missing faces.
