I am sure if Addison could talk she would tell me she really hates me for putting her in a pumpkin, but it was sooooo cute! :)
we had her 4 month check up, little chunky monkey is up 15lbs (90%) and 26.5" (98%) the doctor said she looks fantastic and is growing big and strong and right on track. she has great neck/head/chest support which is great too. he said i can start her on baby food since she really is showing interest in our food. once we do i will post pictures of that mess :)
This fall has been so beautiful, one of the nicest Octobers we have had in a long long time, and we have been loving every minute of it and taking full advantage of the nice weather and going on daily walks and out to the park to play. i am not in any way ready for the snow to come but i know there is no escaping it so i better just get over it and not complain, right?!
Carson and i are just a couple weeks away from celebrating our 5 year wedding anniversary i wish i had some exciting plans to that i could share with you all but i am sure our night will be no different than any other night.
Colton is LOVING school (happy dance) and asks to go every day, we are so happy he loves it. THe teachers seem to really like him also, they are always giving me good reports on how well he is doing.

love my family

Being a stay at home mom of a 4 year old and a 3 month old sure keeps me busy each day and gives me little time to update my blog, i am sorry i haven't been updating as i normally would.

Things are going great for us, the kids are keeping us on our toes, and we are loving every last minute of it. Colton is great, such a joy, though he has his moments of being jealous of his sister he is such a good big brother and loves Addison so much. I love it when he holds her and hugs on her, in the morning he tells her "good morning princess" and tickles her and gets so excited when she smiles at him. We are thinking about putting him into a preschool a few days a week to try to work on his social skills (he has horrible social anxiety, and it breaks my heart to see him so shy around others) we are hoping if we do it it will mellow him out a bit and also help him make new friends.
Addison is growing each and every day, she is already 3 months (14 weeks on wed) at a doctor appt a week ago she was 13.8 lbs and 25 1/4" long, she has a few little rolls on her little legs and nothing is cuter than little baby rolls :) she smiles anytime you look at her and is starting to giggle, it completely melts my heart to hear that little laugh, and "talks" up a storm. She is trying to hard to roll over, she will get half way then can not get her arm out from under her. She is sleeping fairly well at night, some nights are better than others but for the most part she does great. We started her on some medicine for her Acid Reflux, and it seems to be helping with the constant projectile puking, we are also giving her rice cereal to help with it as well and she loves it.
I started to watch a little boy a few times a week, his name is Chase and he is such a sweet little guy... he just turned 2 so colton and him play Ok for the most part.
Carson is still busy with work so that is good. Hunting season has come and gone, unfortunately, he didnt fill his deer or elk tag but its ok.

This last weekend we heading to the pumpkin patch, this year we did the corn maze which Colton didnt really like all that much, but he did the pumpkin launching cannon and the archery shoot and he and Carson went on a hay ride, it was a great day, but trying to get a family picture was pretty much a joke!!!

I hope everyone is doing well, until next time have a great night!!!
