Noah is 3 Months Old!

I can't believe my little man is already 3 months old!! We are enjoying you so much! You are pretty easy going!! This is the best picture I could get of you because you never stop moving! Our lives have started to get in a routine over this last month. Both girls have started back to school/mother's day out, dance, gymnastics, and we have all gotten back into our various church activities. We seem to stay on the go during the week! Here are some of the things you are doing now:

- You are sleeping more during the night and less during the day. We are on a schedule during the night, mostly in the morning, and are still working on the afternoons!
- You stopped nursing about 2 weeks ago so you are strictly on formula now. You are a little piggy! Sometimes when you finish your 6 ounces you are still wanting more!!!
- You love to be talked to and to talk back. That is when we get your best smiles!!!
- You like sitting in your bumbo chair. You can sit in it for a good 10 minutes before your head starts to bobble.
- You are in 3-6 month size sleepers and clothes now.
- You prefer to sleep on your side.
- You are growing like a weed! We don't go back to the doctor until next month so I don't have any stats but you are longer and heavier!

I am sure there is much more but it is past my bedtime so my brain is shutting down and I started boot camp today so my arms are about to fall off!!! We are soaking up every moment with you and fall more in love with you every day!!!

Dallas Trip

A couple of weekends ago we went to Dallas to visit Bryan & Christine and to take the kids to the Fort Worth Zoo. We had a great time! All of the kids traveled well! When we got there on Friday we met B & C at The Rainforest Cafe. The girls were pretty scared at first. They sat us right under this huge gorilla that totally freaked them out! They eventually warmed up to it. Christine & I did some power shopping then went to met the guys & kids for dinner. Saturday we got up and went to the zoo. It was HOT!!!! We got there at 11 and left around 2. Noah was a trooper! He slept for the first 2 hours then ate and either rode in the stroller or we passed him around. After we left the zoo we went to Christine's parents house to swim. When we got there I went to the back to nurse Noah and we fell asleep for 2 hours!!!! We were both hot & tired. When we woke up the girls were having a blast!! Mallory did not like the pool last year but loved it with them. Uncie even convinced her to jump off of the side of the pool to him! Alyssa LOVES the water...whether it is the bath, pool, or a puddle in the yard! When Noah & I woke up we put N in his swim trunks and put him in the pool. He seemed to enjoy it. He was constantly kicking his feet like he was trying to swim!! The next day we went to church which was interesting. We were running late so by the time we got there the child care was full so we had to take all of the kids to church. Uncie & Auntie ended up taking them all out in the foyer until we sang at the end of the service. they were sitting fine...they just weren't very quiet! We had a great trip! The next week Mal & Trey went to Indy for the birth of Tucker...I will post pics soon!!!
