Why my baby needs to stay 4 months forever...

I love me a newborn. It is by far my favorite stage. Especially Rhys he is so happy and cuddly I get so sad that he is growing up. And yes he turned 4 months way back on the first of July.

He is now 13 pounds which is still only the 10% for his age but considering where he started the Dr. isn't worried. He has been cleared to start solids but he is sleeping and growing just fine so I haven't started. Again I want him to be a baby forever.

If he could stay like this forever that would be fine by me :)

Sawyer is the funniest/spunkiest/stubborn kid on the planet. Is spunkiest even a word??

He keeps me on my toes every single day and now that him and Ryder are best buds we have major TROUBLE.

Some funny things I want to remember.

-he cut his hair in the above picture so he could look like his brothers and Dad. I miss his red locks.

- after cutting his hair he didn't want to take a shower bc that would wash off his baldy (that's what he calls his new do)

- when he gets hot he puts sunscreen on he says it helps cool him off.

- loves to sing. And makes up songs and talks in a singing voice a lot of the time.

- we bought him a new hat to wear bc he gets so fried and he told me he couldn't wear it bc he looked like a grandpa and none of his friends would like him or recognize him.

Ah that boy. Such a character in every way!!

4th of July

The 4th was spent lounging for the week with the Trapp's in Newport.

Of course it wouldn't be complete with out completely cheesy matching outfits and a photo shoot.

The Trapp Group....

Some how we were able to talk Leslie into joining us again this year. What am I going to do next year when she leaves for college?? I can't believe how much easier it is with three sets of hands!!!

Sorry T that was the best I got. Such little nuts refused to take any more pictures.

The JLew crew.....

Kids lined up by age ready to do poppers!

The boys are obsessed with Kingman and Boomer......we NEED a dog!!!

phew.....we had a great fourth. Maybe someday I will journal the rest of our trip!!!

Golden Birthday.....

Jeff turned 29 on the 29th of June. Finally closing the age gap and making us the same age again.

Jeff's birthday almost always gets the shaft. being that it is all wrapped up in anniversary, fathers day and trapp week celebrations. I try every year to make it a BIG deal but usually it is an epic fail. But we do what we can.

Jeff sure is awesome and I am so lucky to call him mine and to have him.

I am going to make this year as GOLDEN as possible for him!!

Love ya Jeff!!

Getaway? Yes Please!

My amazing wonderful parents have been taking the three older boys once a month over night so Jeff and I can have a night off and regroup a bit. It has been such an amazing blessing for us!! Usually we just stay home and enjoy the quiet.
But last month Jeff asked me if I wanted to go to Palm Springs for the night. He found a great deal at Embassy Suites in Palm Desert.
We jumped on it and headed out.

The drive out there never gets old to me. I love the wind mills.

Rhys was the BEST traveler. He enjoyed the quiet as much as we did! Jeff and were laughing we took Ryder on a weekend trip when he was the same age. He was awful. Rhys is so mellow!!

Hot hot hot!!

We went to dinner at out favorite mexican place Las Cansuelas so so yummy!!

After dinner we roamed the book store and went to the movies to see X Men. It was entertaining. After we treated ourselves to dessert. And walked around the mall.

We got a great night sleep. The next morning we enjoyed a yummy breakfast at the hotel and then we attempted to sit by the pool. It was super warm so we headed back to the room to enjoy the AC.

On our way home we decided to stop and take pictures of the dinosaurs from the movie the Wizard. The boys love that movie and got a kick out of it.

Lastly on our way home we stopped at the outlets for some shopping. After years of searching I got a coach purse for super super cheap!!

It was a great quick getaway. We are so lucky to have my wonderful parents!!

Such a nice brother to help him get cleaned up!

All ready to go!!!


Afterwards EVERYONE (really the entire school) heads to the pool to get is nasty the pool is insanely crowded and filled with nasty whipped cream.......luckily another friend invited to swim in there pool so we avoided the crowd part :)

Thanks Kane family. This is definitely going to be a great tradition to add to our last day of school!!

Fathers Day

We had some big plans Fathers Day weekend. What we didn't plan for was strep throat. Talk about major bummer.

Jeff and I bought tickets almost 2 years ago for U2. We were so pumped to go!!

I got strep throat the day before the concert and I felt like death. I opted sadly to skip the concert. I was very sad and it was definitely no fun to stay home with 4 kids. Jeff felt good enough to go and had a great time. Although I have forbidden him from talking about it or rubbing it in.

So Jeff started off his fathers day at U2. Then that morning we surprised him with cinnamon rolls from cinnamon productions and presents. We went to church and then had a yummy dinner of roast beef and potatoes. We ended the night with dessert at Jeff's uncle's house.

WE are so lucky to have Jeff in our life. He works so hard for us and we are glad we got to spoil him a little. Although he definitely deserved more!!
