Crew - 3 months!

Today was my first day, as a mother of 3, that all the kids were going in different directions....note to might be exhausting:) Ayden had preschool, Mya had a birthday party, and Crew had his 3 month checkup. I of course went with my little man to his appointment. He had his 1st round of shots, which is never fun but he did check out well. He weighs 12lbs 2 oz (25%) and 24.5 inches (70%). After his appointment, we picked up Ayden, ran some errands and then came home. We managed to snap some cute pics of Crew. Here are some that we like! A special thanks to Ryan and family for the cute outfit!

Calvin and I had our 1st date since Crew was born. We went to the Sugarland concert at the state fair. It was our first time to the Indiana State Fair. We were able to enjoy a little fair food before the concert started and got to meet up with some friends while we werew there. The best part about the concert was one of our friends, Alison Elliott was singing a song with Sugarland. She works for them and they let her sing "Baby Girl" since she was in her home state. We have grown to love Alison and her family. This was all a surprise for her parents. We wish we could have seen the looks on their face. Here are a few pics from our fun night!

A great morning!

What a great morning.... I never thought I would have this much time on my hands when I have 5 kids at my house! My dish washer is running, the washer is running, the dryer is running, the kids are playing.....that is a good morning at my house:) This was all able to occur because my wonderful baby Crew is still sleeping away( yes I checked on him to make sure he was still breathing) and my 14 year old nephew and his cousin are here building forts and playing wars with Ayden and as for Mya...well she is playing with them some, visiting me some, and doing her usual....making messes!

So the point of my blog this morning is we went to King's Island yesterday. Calvin wanted to take his nephew who had never been before. I managed to make arrangements for Mya and Crew so I could tag along and hang out with Ayden for the day at Planet Snoopy! He had a blast as any 4 year old would! I really enjoyed spending some good quality time with Ayden.

My growing boy!

Here are some pics of Crew when he was about 1 1/2 months old. He is growing fast. He is now at the 2 month mark and getting more fun each day. He is smiling alot now and laughing. He also is paying close attention to what is going on around him! He really likes to swing in a big swing that his buddy Josiah let us borrow. I can't wait to enjoy many more sweet moments with Crew!
