Don't Blink!

Remember that song? That's how I'm feeling right now, life has been fast and furious for this little family lately (but what's new:)! My little Rush turned 4 months old yesterday. We went for his 4 month well baby check and everything was great. He weighs 14.2lbs and is 25 1/2 inches long. The whole time they were examining him (attempting to get him to lie on his back), he was doing "crunches" and grabbing for anything he could pull up on. He will seriously have a six pack like his dad soon. He also pulled the wooden stick out of the doctor's hand while she was trying to look in his mouth and started waving it around, ha! Of course, shots were no fun and he fussed pretty much all day today. Other than the stats, he has been smiling and laughing a lot these days, talking to us all the time, and finally loves to play with his toys. It is so funny to see him reaching and shaking toys....he seems like such a big boy. He has also been sleeping in his big boy crib for a few weeks now (and still napping some in the swing). Since I have been working, days seem to be getting shorter (especially the days I have home with my baby). Hopefully I will get used to the schedule and things will calm down soon. I had pictures from the Dr's visit, but they were deleted when my phone went crazy today, however, I do have to post a few of my little guy from this month.

It's Snowing?

Let's go play! Andrew got this vest for him when I was 6 months pregnant. I think it is adorable.

They are warming up to each other...slowly but surely!

Count Your Many Blessings

This year for turkey day, we went over to James and Linda's to join the Chaddick side of the family for a delicious, traditional Thanksgiving meal. Linda is a gourmet chef, so of course, it was delicious. We have so much to be thankful for, the Lord has been good to us yet again this year. I wish I had more pictures, but my phone crashed and I lost all except for these. It was great to see everyone, can't wait to do it again!

Dressed up for lunch

Then changed into his turkey shirt to play with dad
And Hope and Molly

And then went home to try my first meal of rice cereal. You can see where most of it went
I'm so sad, I had more pictures of sweet Claire and the rest of the family, but I lost them. So....if you have pictures please share. Hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving.
PS-Thanksgiving was like a mini-Christmas for Rush! More posts to come on his new loot.
