Henry 2 months

Henry went to the Dr and got an excellent report.  He is also a BIG boy!  He is bigger than both James and Blake at 2 months and I thought they were big!

Height 24" (86%)
Weight 14 lbs 3 oz (94%)
Head 15.2" (22%)

Sleeping- You are starting to take longer naps during the day.  Sometimes in the afternoon you will sleep up to 3 hours straight.  Unfortunately, many afternoons I have to wake you from a nap to pick up the boys from school.  You are learning to be very flexible.  You go down for bed around 7:30-8 and get up once in the night before waking up for the day around 7 am.

Eating- You are nursing every 2-3 hours during the day.  You will take a bottle very easily too.

Personality-You have become a much happier baby the last few weeks.  I feel like you went from crying a lot to hardly at all.  You still let me know when you want a diaper change or are tired.  You are content being in your swing, bouncy seat, or floor.  You are giving us a lot of smiles and coo's.   You have two adorable dimples along with a double chin.  I could just kiss your chubby cheeks all day.  We love you so much Henry!

We had a low key Thanksgiving week in KC this year.  Todd's brother(Justin) and sister(Ashley) came in town and it was so much fun having them here.  Todd and I even got away for a couples massage and dinner out all by ourselves.  It was such a treat!  

I guess we were too busy having fun with our 3 sweet blessings that the only pictures that were taken over the weekend were on Thanksgiving at my mom and dad's.  I MUST do better at Christmas!  Especially since I need to get some pictures of the boys with their Aunt and Uncle!

Trip to Arizona

Henry took his first airplane ride earlier this month to Arizona.  We went with my mom and Abby to visit Grandma, Lynda/Wayne, Shelly/Ken/Sarah!  Henry did great on both plane rides.  He slept both flights and didn't get fussy until we had landed and were waiting to get off the plane.  We also got to celebrate Sarah's 8th birthday with some yummy chocolate cake.  It was great to see Grandma and I know she was thrilled to meet Henry.

The big boys

James and Blake are now officially roommates!  Blake didn't want to give up his crib until a few days before Henry arrived.  We had everything set up the beginning of September, but he wasn't so sure and didn't want to rush him.  Once he decided to sleep in his toddler bed he did really well in the beginning.  The first few weeks were easy and Todd and I thought it was a much easier transition than we expected.  Well.... the last week or so hasn't gone as well.  He doesn't want to stay in his bed and if we try to put James to bed at the same time Blake will not leave James alone.  We are trying to put Blake to bed first and then James.  Another difficulty is James' nap.  He likes to sing(loudly) and read books before he falls asleep so after waking up Blake a couple of times we have decided to have him nap in our bed.  So far it is working out well.  Most of the boys' room was done from when James moved in, but I did update it with a new furniture arrangement and some new pictures.

James family portrait

One of James' favorite things right now is to draw on his doodle.  He drew this picture of our family which I thought was so precious!

Visit from Lynda, Shelly, and Sarah

Aunt Lynda, Aunt Shelly and Sarah came to town a couple of weeks ago.  We enjoyed spending time with our AZ family.  James and Blake really look up to their big cousin Sarah.  Henry and I are going to Arizona next weekend and we are excited to see everyone again!
