15 months!

Our littlest snuggler who gives the BIGgest hugs is 15 months old!

And guess who finally broke the growth chart?!
Yep, this kid!
At 18lbs 1oz he is now in the 2% for weight.
Of course his head circumference 
which houses that smart brain of his is still holding strong in the 27%.
I'm pretty sure that most of his caloric intake goes straight to his noggin. 

ColT's weight gain is probably due to all of the
 sweet potato french toast that he ate up this morning.
After he finished his tray of food he was stealing from everyone else's plate.

We LOVE our lil' scrapper!
And fight over who gets to hug him ;)

And Colter's best new baby trick?!
Sleeping through the night!
We've had ONE full night of sleep!
Whoot!  Whoot!

P.S.  I have no sympathy for mothers who complain 
about their 4 month old waking up at night...

Sweet dreams to all!

A couple of weeks ago Rollin requested crab for dinner.
That kid has a big appetite for the finer things in life.
Only problem was we couldn't find any in town.
Then I kinda forgot that he wanted crab till yesterday.
But I wasn't sure if we'd be able to purchase 'fresh' crab in Wenatchee.
So in an attempt to avoid disappointing our leading man I said,
"Hey Marshall, I wonder if we should try to find some C-R-A-B today."
At that Rolli looked at me and said,
"Moaaam! You forgot to get me crab!"
Yes, and I also forgot that I've been teaching them how to read.
Clearly our spelling lessons have been effective.
There will no longer be any secret conversations in our small home.  

And thanks to Mike's Meats we had CRAB for dinner!!

My usual sou chefs. 

Experiencing our meal with all the senses.

Next time we'll have to buy two whole crabs.
Cuz Rolli LOVED it!

(In case you have been wondering....
Colter is wearing a lady bug costume;) )

Snuggle Kids

We have a home full of snuggle bugs :)
And everyone wants to cuddle the baby! 

Big Brother and Lil' Brother.
Big Sissy and her ColT!

As we where driving by the cemetery last week 
Viv announced that she wanted a rose on her grave.
I told her that she should write that down cuz 
I didn't want to be around to make that decision.
She asked why and I said, 
"Because I love you so much."
Her response,
"I hope I die before Colter because I love him so much!"
And she does!
Vivian is head-over-heels in love with her Baby ColT :)

My sweet peas.
