Presidents Day

So this morning I went to the  APEX center to work out, and on our way out the kids said maybe we can come and swim later. I told them that it might be really crowded because of Presidents Day. Then Ashlie said to me " mom then where are all the presents". I was laughing to my self. I said it was Presidents Day, not Presents day. She is a goof.

Western Stock show

We took the kids over to the western stock show. We had a really good time at the rodeo. The kids really enjoyed the bull riding. In one of the events, where the cowboys rope the calf and tie the legs together, the cow was just laying there, and Matthew said "mom is he dead"
I thought it was really funny. 

Nothing like some good old cotton candy

3 Months Old

3 Months old: 

Weight: 11lbs 13oz

You are starting to get such a personality, you giggle at me when I sing to you (probably because I can't sing) 
You give the biggest smiles to me and daddy
You LOVE to chew on your hands
You like to have your burp cloth on your tummy so you can eat it or snuggle with it
You are discovering your hands, and trying to grab more things
You really enjoy staring and smiling at your toys that hang
You now sleep 11-12 hours straight!!

The first picture is of the day he was born, this one is his 3 month old. I can't believe how big he is getting already. We just love him!!!
