Merry Christmas!

This was such a special Christmas for us. Our first one as a family of four :) We have felt God's hand on on lives so closely this past month and He has truly blessed us. Eric and I were so excited to be so close to our family for the holidays and just soaked up some family time! This has also been the ideal month for Eric and I to go on a couple of dates (which are far and few to come by these days!!) due to Christmas parties and 1 dinner alone :) We're also looking forward to ringing in the New Year tomorrow with some close friends and enjoying a yummy Italian dinner while my parents babysit. Then next week MMO starts back and our normal routine will be underway. January is my motivator month! Love it!!!

Nolan's new hair-cut

Nolan got a big boy hair-cut today. I snapped this pic of him this afternoon on the playground before he got knocked down by a fast flying soccer ball! I sware...Nolan has more accidents at the park than anyone I know. The shirt he wore today ironically says it all, "Little Tough Guy"...and that he is indeed!

I call William my "sweet precious" because of his sweet spirit, but I also call him "bright eyes" because he's always got his eyebrows lifted and eyes wide-open taking it all in this pic all snuggled in his stroller at the park.

December begins...

It's the holiday season and one of my favorite times of the year. It's been pretty chilly here in Gulfport and I actually got to wear my coat for the first time last week! Wow, huh! We are all enjoying the change in weather and warm fires in our cozy living room. The stockings are up, the tree is decorated, and the Christmas shopping is just about complete. We are most importantly reflecting on our blessings from above and celebrating the birth of our Savior.

Bright eyes!

William wants so badly to sit-up...he's not as laid back as Nolan was at this age.

Always together :)

Not too sure about Santa

Crosby's 2nd birthday (and yes Nolan is sitting in his chair!!!)

My dear friend Lauren (we were pregnant at the same time and had our babies a week apart in July. This is also Crosby's mom...Nolan's best friend). This pic was taken at their annual Christmas party.

Saved the best for sweet husband, I love you babe!

4 months old

I've been such a bad blogger and even skipped posting William's 4 month pics & stats! He was 4 months old on November 23rd and at his routine visit last week, he weighed in at 16 pounds, 14 ounces (75th percentile) and was 25 inches long (50th percentile). He is changing so much everyday! He is teething all the time, loves playing in his exersaucer and jump & go and still really enjoys tummy time. He can roll over from stomach to back and from his back to stomach now. He has this squeaky singing voice sometimes when he's playing or's hilarious! William loves watching big brother Nolan all the time and smiles every time he hears his voice. Lately he's been enjoying watching Nolan play with his trains and just loves looking at the Christmas tree. I've been dressing him in all of Nolan's hand-me-downs (some of which Nolan never wore b/c he grew so fast) and he's wearing 6 month old clothes now. I think by January he will be completely out of size 3-6 month clothes.

We have also moved into our rental house. It's great and we have so much more space! I'm most excited and most thankful to God for blessing us with this home before Christmas so we wouldn't have to be in that apartment any longer. It was difficult moving with 2 little ones, but so worth it!
