Smile or Not

Little M had just woken up from a nap when I decided to put him in the activity chair....he didn't like that idea too much.  But sweet Little N was trying to make him happy.  Then once he realized I was taking pictures he looked at me and said cheese.....NO IDEA where he learned that from.  (Maybe his camera....who knows)

Animal Crackers

Little N for some reason has stopped eating animal crackers.....however he will eat them if he can dip them in milk.  Silly GUY!!

What a fun day!!

We got a bunch of snow this weekend.  On Saturday we decided that it would be fun to play outside.  So we bundled up - Little N, Little M, John & Caristy.  It was QUITE a production.  It was the perfect type of snow - for snowballs, snowmen & making a big hill (that will have tunnels through it).  It's very unusual for North Dakota to have this type of snow.....usually it's really powdery and not fun to play in.  But we had fun.  We played outside for a while.....Little M for a while in his snow sack & then he was tucked inside my jacket in the baby bjorn.  It was lots of fun.  We topped the day with homemade ice cream!  We enjoyed it but I think Little N's face captures it best!

Brotherly Love

Little N since Little M was first born LOVES to give him kisses and love.  He's not quite that sure when Little M gives "love" back but it's sweet.  Little N also LOVES to try to "help".....he found sunglasses and decided that HE had to put them on Little M.  Poor Little M had NO IDEA what was in store for him!  Thankfully no one was hurt and we had good smiles to take pictures of!!

Uh Oh!!

Little M has decided that he's tired of laying on his he has started rolling from his back to his front.  But then once he gets to his tummy he really doesn't like thankfully he has a helpful older brother who tries to roll him back.  We are slowly getting to the point of having two mobile children (getting a little nervous!)

More Driving & Visiting

We stopped in the Cities (if you don't understand what that means....we are in MN now) to visit John's cousins for a quick stop (thanks M & M).  Then we got stuck in traffic (because of a car fire....crazy!!)  We drove to Fergus Falls where we got to eat pizza & visit with Caristy's Grandma & Uncle, & Aunt.  Then we drove up to Fargo to stay at John's parents house for the night!

We drove and drove through the night and John finally needed to stop to get much need 1 hour of sleep in Ohio (at a rest area) which was perfect timing because Little M needed to eat so we slept and ate.  We drove and drove until we got to Westby, WI to visit some wonderful friends.  Sadly I forgot my camera in the car the whole time we were there....but let me tell you we had fun!!  Too much fun to attempt to take pictures.  Jumping, eating, jumping, playing, talking, visiting.  We had fun!  Thank you Adam & Andrea for your wonderful hospitality....we appreciate our visit!

Good Bye CT

It was our last day with family...sad! We packed up our stuff, ate & decided that we wanted to leave before the storm hit us. We timed it pretty good because Little M was tired & the snow was just starting once we got 45 minutes on the road. We were thankful that we were able to spend time with family and friends.  It was a short visit and to Caristy just felt like it zipped by to quick for words.  Can't wait till we go out again!

Merry Christmas

We Celebrated our last Christmas celebration today.  We had my Grandma, Tantes and Little N's second cousins.  We feasted on DELICIOUS lasanga & Greek Salad!  Then sadly it was discovered that a pipe had broken and there was lots of water and steam in the garage.  Little N openned up his presents with the help of his second cousins.  He loved getting trains and he also got a cool thing that will help him read books. Thanks for the wonderful Christmas Presents everyone! We love you!!

A yummy Japanese Meal

We decided to make a japanese meal (Caristy sister wanted some & we wanted to invite some friends over before we left).  So Caristy tried to find some of the supplies....she found some but it wasn't quite what we were used to....sigh!!  But it was really yummy!!  We had J & J over.....I made a craft project for the two boys that I thought they would like but Little L was a little nervous (he's allergic to peanuts) and the playdough I had made (with sunbutter) just reminded him a little bit too much of the peanut butter so he played for a little bit and then was done.  John did a great job with the food....always so much fun. :-) 

4 months old

We haven't been to the Dr to have a 4 month check up so I don't know the height of Little M but he's 13.6 pounds (according to wii fit).  Little M is bigger than Little N (by alot - at this age).  He's a sweet baby boy who knows what he wants - he likes to be held, look at people, talk to them and coo, he also has this habit of rolling over from his back to front (so not ready for that!).  He's my boy and I love him!! :-)
