Kaden, Lauren, Ava, and Olivia in October

Ava had an Octoberfest celebration at her school. They were invited to wear German clothes. Ava jumps at a chance to sport her dirndle.

Lauren is doing well with dance,violin, and loves to pose.

Kaden is enjoying scouting, reading, and piano.

Olivia Four Month Pictures

I can't hardly believe that we have had littly Livy-Love for four months already. She is such a sweet baby and truly a joy! If you ask me, I think she is a mini Lauren and reminds me so much of her big sister at this age. Some of the things that she is doing right now......

Smiling, smiling, smiling (except in these pics for some reason)

Sleeping 9-10 hours in a row at night (YAY!!)

Discovered her hands and loves to suck on her fingers much to Kevin's dismay

Pulls mom's hair every chance she can get

Drools like crazy (teeth already?)

Loves her play mat and is starting to hold toys

Gets the giggles when she is ready for a nap

First time hanging out in her Bumbo Chair.

Thanks for the super cute diaper cover and hair pretty Aunt Kelsie and Uncle Brian!

How can you not want to smoother that sweet face in kisses?

The other day Ava asked for some cheese. All I had in the fridge was a new German variety that she hadn't tried before. As I handed it to her, I waited patiently for her response. We've really been trying to work on manners lately. Hoping that she would thank me for stopping what I was doing to fix her a snack, I waited and waited. So finally I said, "Ava, what do you say?"

From the other room she yelled back, "I say this is YUCK!"

Oh Ava, how dull life would be without your sweet sassiness! How I love you little bug.
