2 Months

Lakyn, you are TWO MONTHS OLD!

Here are some of your newborn pictures, you were only NINE DAYS OLD! You have changed so much in just 8 short weeks. I love Shelia, our new photographer, and can't wait for Christmas pictures!

Here is your 2 month snapshot. (Taken with my iPhone) It was the first time you have worn Baby Legs and I think they are so cute on you, we have to have some in every color! :)
Here is what you are up to at 2 months:

*You weigh 12 lbs. 2 oz and you are 24 inches long! You are over the 100th percentile in height and you are in the 95th percentile in weight. Dr. Taylor said you are the size of a FOUR MONTH OLD! You are a chunky little monkey!

*You wear size 3-6 month clothes which is really exciting because all of your adorable outfits are starting to fit! You look like a little baby doll every time we leave the house!

*You wear size 1 diapers, Pampers Swaddlers. You had a weird reaction to Huggies, so we will just stick with Pampers!

*You are fully weined now and you are doing great with the change! You use Avent bottles and Similac Sensitive Soy Formula. You drink 4 ounces every 3-4 hours.

*You have been randomly sleeping through the night, which is awesome for Mommy!

*You are staying awake for longer periods of time and cooing and smiling often.

*You always recognize Mommy's voice and this morning when you heard your Daddy, you stopped drinking your bottle and scanned the room trying to find him, it was so sweet!

*Harleigh and Trey are head over heels for you and they want to hold you and talk to you all day long! Trey loves to get right in your face and he calls you, "Sweet Lakyn" and "Little Tiny". Harleigh loves to feed you and read to you!

You are our little hope baby and we are enjoying you so much!!!

Halloween 2010

We had a really good time celebrating Halloween this year. My Mom and I took the kids to a Pumpkin Patch the weekend before Halloween. I was so excited to get pictures of the kids in the pumpkins and I just knew they would be adorable and perfect pictures! Boy, was I wrong! It was hot, the sun was in their eyes, and they were grouchy. There were also a lot of kids there, so they really just wanted to play. It was a total bust! This is the best picture I got of them. It's definitely hit or miss when you are trying to get a good picture of 3 kiddos!

Lakyn was such a little angel. They had all kinds of fun stuff for the kids, coloring, games, a moonwalk, firetruck, train, etc. She just layed back in her stroller looking like a little Halloween Princess and never made a peep. She is such a good baby!
On Halloween night, Josh and I took the kids trick-or-treating. We were supposed to go with a bunch of friends but there was a change of plans. It really worked out for the best because we had a great time going as a family. We went to a neighborhood close to home about 30 minutes before dark and we went from house to house until it got dark. Lakyn was dressed as a skeleton for her 1st Halloween! I barely got any pictures of her. I was pretty busy keeping up with
Our Little Fisherman...
And his Big Sister the Garden Fairy :)
