Alivia’s an awesome 2 year old now!! We love her so much.
Here are our Thanksgiving day pictures, however, I am sad to even call them that as we did not enjoy a Thanksgiving meal or time with family because Ben and I were sick on Thanksgiving eve and Thanksgiving day. It was so sad to have to tell Alivia that we couldn’t go play with her cousins or aunt or uncle or grandma(s). We made it through though with many explanations that we would have a party with our family again soon. Alivia kept saying “Amy & Allan’s house.”
Nolan listening to his daddy play guitar, he loves this!!
Well, Nolan is now 4 1/2 months old and he is so gosh darn cute. He is such a smiley little fellow and he just puts smiles on our faces daily. He is only usually a grumpy, grump at night time right before bed. We are kind of finding out his schedule… morning nap around 10:00/10:30ish, afternoon nap around 1:30/2:00ish, bedtime around 8:00ish. And, it just so happens to coordinate with Alivia’s nap and bedtime schedule. Makes this mama happy!
(@ 4 months) 13 pounds, 4 ounces and (about) 24 inches long
- His giraffe: sophie! he can chomp, chew, suck, slobber on that thing like crazy
- White noise when sleeping
- Playing peek-a-boo
- Singing, he gives us huge smiles!
- Playing with toys that he can grab

Nolan’s New things:
- Rolling over from his tummy to his back (just started a few days before Christmas at 4 months)
- Grabbing toys
- Sleeping in his crib during nap time… still working on the night time sleep
- Getting into a sleep pattern all by himself
Alivia has become quite my little climber. I was on the computer (October 2011) for a few minutes and I heard Alivia quiet for a few moments and then burst into giggles, repeatedly saying “hands”. I went into her room to see what she was up to. She took off her clothes, climbed up onto the changing table, and opened the Vaseline. I found it all over herself… we needed an afternoon bath that day. We don’t even use Vaseline but we had it in her room since she was a baby. We decided to move it into our bathroom, incase we want to use it someday.
I did have to discipline her for climbing on the changing table and getting into the Vaseline but it was really hard not to laugh at this one. I decided to take pictures because it made me smile. Just look at that face…
1st time dressing up for Halloween party!
Just some fun in their Halloween gear
2nd time dressing up for Halloween party and trick or treating!
We had fun going to a few Halloween parties and trick-or-treating at a couple of houses. We don’t plan on “celebrating” Halloween much but it was fun for the kids to dress up and fun for me to take pictures of them. Each year we will evaluate what we want to do for Halloween since there can be negatives to the holiday but for now we enjoy dressing up the kids. Simple as that!
