Nathan enjoyed ringing in the new year all snuggled in his crib….with his first tooth!!! He’s been fussy and not sleeping so well, but then he cut his first tooth and slept great.
We enjoyed sparklers before the big show that Mark and Levi put on for us all.
After the fireworks show we said goodnight to my parents and headed upstairs for a slumber party in our room with the kids. This has become a tradition. We put on some movies and then see who makes it to midnight.
When it hit midnight Levi was not interested in waking up. 😄 The babies (Isaac and Nathan) went to bed at their typical time. Mark took a nap through a movie but was up with us for the countdown.
Happy New Year 2019!!!
Today Nathan is four months old! He’s such a happy and content baby. I wish I could have 10 more of him. Everyone wants to hold him and someone’s always talking to him. We are so blessed!
Today the UPS man came to our door, the first thing he said was “are you making cinnamon rolls?” I told him I was! Then he said “it smells just like when my mom makes them.”
The boys have been helping. Over this past week we’ve made about 180 cinnamon rolls!!! 😳
Here’s the recipe I use. CINNAMON ROLLS
We had to try them….nummy!
My lightbulb fixer…
My backseat partner……I don’t usually get to sit next to Ila in the van.
We visited the condo my parents own in downtown Boise. Their renter moved out and it was empty so we took a tour before the new renters move in. Here’s the view off of the deck.
We went with my parents on a Christmas carriage ride through the city.
Here we are waiting for our turn.
The older boys and Mark got happy Christmas haircuts. 😄
Nathan loves napping in his Moses basket and always wakes up so happy!
Sunday afternoon naps are the best!
They love to sew! I remember teaching Lulu how to hand sew and now Ila’s enjoying it. They are making matching teddy bears.
My dad had some female helpers to guide him in birthday shopping for my mom. Don’t worry mom you’re not getting a shop-vac. 😄
Playing Mexican Train with my boys.
Reading with dad.
Enjoying an abundance of oranges. Every child has enjoyed putting an orange on their finger. An inside joke we’ve had for years is “Chickie ate a Booboo.” We say it almost all the time when someone puts an orange on their finger. An orange on your finger is called a booboo because they pretend their finger is hurt and Chickie was a squirrel that visited our apartment often. One day we saw Chickie run down the fence with a booboo in his mouth and sweet little Ila at just 2 years old yelled “Chickie ate a booboo!!!” That’s the story of our inside joke. 😎
Nathan keeps getting more and more fun!!! And more and more vocal. He has so much to say.
I LOVE this Moses basket. Nathan’s the 3rd baby to sleep in it.
Levi loves creating swords and guns. Here he’s using a jigsaw to cut out his latest creation.
Ila loves to dress up her little brothers. Here he was a preacher. 😂
Brothers! Levi lately has been asking to hold Nathan more. I think because Nathan is getting more animated and fun.
