Hanging with Cooper

In October, Cousin Cooper came to Texas to visit us.  He brought Grandma Lonna and Auntie Tabi with him.  The girls had a fantastic time playing with their cousin.  This was Coopers first time to Texas, but I bet after how much fun these guys had together it will not be his last.

They love him so much!

Trick -or- Treat 2015

The older two went trick-or-treating around the neighborhood with dad.  They had so much fun ringing doorbells, wearing glow sticks, and loading up on candy.

A Kitty-Cat and a Princess - They each picked out their own costumes.  Thank goodness for the dress up bin!

And now we have a Honey Bee!

It's Fall Y'all!

Tim and the girls had a lot of fun playing in the leaves.  Our next door neighbors have an oak tree, which make for a fantastic leaf pile.  Tim and the two older girls had fun jumping and tossing the leaves around. Thankful for warm weather to play outside.

Visitors Part 2

Baking with Grammie

Such good kitchen helpers!

Post playing pedicures (foot bath).

Reading with Papa!

All the ladies with Papa!
We love visitors!  I cannot say that enough.  Grammie and Papa came to town to meet Cameron.  While they were here, we had lots of yummy homemade meals, quality playtime, kitchen helping, pedicures, a trip to the library, and lots of snuggles.  The girls soaked in the time with their Grammie and Papa.  Thank you for coming to take care of us!

Visitors Part 1

We loved having Grandpa and Deb come and visit with us.  I guess we were having to much fun to take pictures.  A lot of fun was had going to the park, playing in the back yard, going for walks, making Monster cookies, reading, and snuggling. It was so awesome having the two of you here.

Pumpkin Patch 2015

Our first trip of two to our local pumpkin patch.  During our first trip, Grammie and Papa came along.

Carter was so excited to see all of the pumpkins.

Pumpkin patch round two! 

Just the girls

I love this picture of the big sisters looking at their little sister.

Cameron Leanne

Probably one my favorite pictures of the day.
We love this time of the year.  The weather gets cooler and the trees start to change colors. Going to the pumpkin patch has become a tradition since Crosby was born. Both Crosby and Carter ask to go all throughout the year.

The 3 C's - 2 Months

Crosby Eleanor
Carter Joy

Cameron Leanne

The 3 C's - 1 Month

Crosby Eleanor

Carter Joy

Cameron Leanne

Cameron - 2 months

This little girl is 2 months old! She is continuing to change from day to day.  I am enjoying spending this time at home with her so much.  This month, Cameron had a 2 month appointment with Dr. Towns, so we have weight and height stats!  

Height: 24.75"
Weight: 11lbs 11oz

Read more about Crosby's 2 months here and Carter's here.

Cameron's likes: eating, riding in the car, sitting in her rocker, being talked and sung to, sleeping on her side in her own crib, laying on her changing table, taking a bath, her big sisters, box fan noise, going to church, being held upright, FaceTiming with MN family,  her play mat, going for walks 

Cameron's dislikes: being swaddled (she's warming up to it), waking up early from a nap, napping on Mondays, staying in one place to long, waiting to eat

Cameron is starting to coo, talk and smile very big this month.  She is still eating at 12am or 3am every night (sometimes I don't hear my 12am alarm).  Fingers crossed that sometime during the month she will make it all the way through the night.  After she eats at 12, she'll still wake up sometime in between 4 and 6am.  She will usually wake up due to a dirty diaper, which makes for an early load of laundry.  Cameron is taking 3 decent 1.5 hour naps daily.  One or two naps are around 45 minutes.  Once she's out of her crib, she's a very happy little girl. I've come to the conclusion that she just don't want to miss out on anything. 

Cameron we love you so much!

Cameron's 1st bath (w/ helpers)

Just making sure dad knows what he's doing.

She favors her left side and maybe she's a bit camera shy.

Cater obviously needed a better angle.

Even with the look on Cameron's face, she loved the bath.

Just watching out for her little sister.

Cameron - 1 Month

On October 11, Cameron reached the 1 month mark. We are learning a lot about this little girl.  She's has some similarities to her sisters, but also she's very different.  We love this new addition and she has been fun getting to know.  You can read about Crosby's 1st month here and Carter's here.

Fantastic Trio

Three girls.  Sisters.  This makes me so happy.  One of our kind nurses made Big Sister bracelets for the girls.  These three are going to share secrets, laughter, dreams, hopes, prayers, and much more. Love!

Our 1st Family of 5 Photo

We had this photo taken before we left the hospital with Cameron on September 13.  We are so excited to be a family of 5!
