8 weeks old

WOW we are already to 8 weeks will turn TWO months old by the end of this week! It just doesn't seem possible that amount of time has already flown by! You have come alive this week. You slept SEVEN hours straight TWO night this week which was FANTASTIC for this mommy. But that left you up 3-4 hours straight several day during the day time. I was so strange to have a baby awake for so long. But you are such a joy, you smile and you light up the room! We all gush over you like we have no sense and have never seen a baby smile! You coo and squeal all the time! We are soooo ready to hear you laugh out laughed! This week we let you sit in the bumpo for a few minutes and you loved it! And you really like your new exersaucer! You are starting to stare intensely at things and then trying to grab them. You have even tried to sit up out of your bouncy seat; which SHOCKED us all! You are strong as an ox! 


And you LOVE to look at yourself in the mirror!

 I just love that you smile with your mouth WIDE open!

 First time in the bumpo chair!
 My camera was left in the car Saturday night so when I got it out and started taking pictures this is what I got.........and I didn't even realize it till it was too late!

At least the lens warmed up before the last picture!
And what better way to celebrate truing 8 week old than with a Christmas celebration with Aunt Paige and Uncle Jody!!!! Greer knew just what to to this year! She needed NO help opening her gift!

 And finally Kinley got to dig into her present!
 A HELMET!!!!!!
Now she is ready for tee-ball!!!! 
And in the midst of all the excitment...Creed feel dead asleep on his play mat. So he didn't get to see the cute stack-able toy or monkey hat that Aunt Paige got him! But I tried to get a picture of him with the hat on,lol!

Christmas Day!!!!!

Christmas Day 2014! The day the kids...and I.....have waited for ALL year long was finally here! They crashed before 8:30 so I assumed they would be up at 4am running and squealing through the house.  But, I was wrong...they slept till 7am and came quietly into our room to tell us Santa came! They were so excited to see what Santa had brought them!!!

 MC got an ipod touch and the American Girl doll she wanted!
 Kinley got the doll house and American girl doll house she wanted!
 And baby brother got an exersaucer and a riding toy!
 Love that smile!!! And the WILD bed hair!
 KB trying so hard to hold back a smile.....she kills me!
 MC got an Itunes card in her stocking and she was pumped!
 Such anticipation...........
 She wanted to know Maddox's middle name and the Jolly Ole Soul came through!
 Santa had her name engraved on the ipod!

 They couldn't wait to see what Creed got them......
 LOVE Kinley's intense face here!!!
 Two excited girls........they have been asking for fake glasses for months now!
 They look so cute in them!!!

 And we got them an new easel since the wind demolished their old one!
 Baby brother slept till almost 9am! So we opened his stocking without him.
 And when he finally woke up the girls couldn't wait to help him open his gifts and show him what Santa brought him.

 He loved it all
 He got super excited
 He did a little dance
 He cooed a few times
 And then he pasted out again!
 Then it was off to Nana's for Christmas lunch! The girls just had to have their picture made iwth their glasses on so I said okay for a few but then off they come!

 My cutie pies!
 Nana and her favorite two girls!

 Nana, Poppa, and the crew..........minus Creed who was sleeping so soundly that we did not want to wake him!
 The WORLD'S Best Nana and Poppa!

 Aunt Ashley and crew!
 Love these cute boys!
 Kinley trying to play big sister to Parker!
 The girls showing off their monogrammed bags Ashley and Eric got them! SUPER CUTE!!!
 Cooper excited over his camo bag!
 He will be the most stylish guy at deer camp next year!
 The girls got this camo hat for Cooper and it was hilariously cute!
 Family picture........and yep we had to wake Creed up to get him in the picture!
 Our family! Crazy that we have added TWO sweet boys to this family in the last year!

 Since Creed was awake we finally got to get a few pictures of our little family!


Our Family of Five! LOVE IT!
And after another nap that afternoon, Creed got to try out his exersaucer! He looks so tiny in it!

Merry Christmas from our home to yours!
