Brooks ~1 month!

Brooks, I can not believe you are one month already!!  You are growing so big and strong.  Here are just a few things that you're up to lately.

You weigh a little over 7 pounds and you're around 21 inches long.

You still wear newborn clothes but I think you're getting close to getting to 0-3 months clothes.

You're in newborn diapers but not for much longer.

You sleep really good at night and during the day.  At night you sleep on average 3-4 hours before you wake to eat.

You've been eating 3 ounce bottles every 3-4 hours.  I'm going to move you up to 4 ounces this week.

You've started to smile and it's just the sweetest thing!

You are just such a chill baby.  The only time you cry is when you're hungry.

You started sleeping in your big bed.  You're doing great but mom's not so excited having you so far away.

You rolled over at three weeks but I think it was a fluke.  If your arms are underneath you then you can roll over but if your arms are not underneath you then you can't roll over.

When Farrah talks to you, you smile real big and start kicking your legs.

Having a older sister means you get to play dress up.

You had your first haircut at three weeks!  It HAD to be done!

Happy first month!  (You have your arm up all the time.  Dad usually gives you a high five and mom says "Up Up and Away!"  Silly boy!)

You are such a sweet baby and such a blessing to us!

Family Date Night!

Last night we had a family date night at the Corn Maze.  We had promised Farrah we would go before Brooks was born and it happened to be the same day as her field trip to the Corn Maze but she didn't seem to mind.  I wanted to take some pictures of Farrah and Brooks together.  It was a challenge but fun!

Oh how I love this girl!!

Our joy and blessings!

Sweet boy!

Our first family picture of four!

After pictures we had some fun at the maze.  It was so much fun watching Farrah running through the maze and telling us which turn we should make.  Thankfully James had a map and and kept us from getting to lost....;-)

This is what Brooks did through the whole maze.

I just love our little family!

Corn Maze fun!

Farrah had her first field trip at the Corn Maze with her school.  She was so excited about her first field trip and getting to ride on a school bus.  I was glad James was off that day so he could keep Brooks at home and I could have some one on one time with her.

I love seeing Farrah with her classmates!  It 's so fun watching her personality and her just being a kid.

I loved having some much needed one on one time with Farrah.
