Our newest baby...

No, I'm not preggo again! This baby arrived at our home already 18 months old (and he sleeps through the night!) Meet Zeppelin.

Nick has been searching for a dog for months now...texting me pictures of dogs...pleading his case for a dog. And it's not that I didn't want a dog, but I was just worried about caring for a dog while juggling the needs of three other children and the household.

However, I knew that he really wanted a dog and that it would be great for the children to grow up with a dog so I said, "Let's go for it!"

We looked into adopting through an agency, but by chance he found a dog that was going to be given up from a private home so we decided to visit him.  We went one evening after Colson's soccer game and we came home with a 60lb baby!

Zep is a super sweet dog. He's wonderful with the children, already knows basic commands, stays in the yard, doesn't get on furniture (we have to be careful since I'm allergy prone) and loves to play. I think he's the perfect fit for our family and the kids are crazy about him (especially the big red headed kid!)
One worn out pup!

Sam at 5 months!

Another month has passed, and it's so hard for me to believe that my little Sam is already 5 months!
He is just the happiest little baby, and I am so thankful that I get to spend my days with him.

5 months:

Weight: 14.5 lbs
Length:  25 inches

Sleep: Takes a morning and afternoon nap...usually the afternoon nap is a bit longer. Sometimes he takes a cat nap around dinner time too. Goes to bed around 8:30. Wakes around 2:30-3:00 to eat. Then back to sleep for a few more hours. I'd really like for him to drop this last feeding, but the boy has to eat!
Awake: We brought the Jump-a-Roo out of storage and Sam loves it! The boy can bounce! He also enjoys being outside and being carried around while I do housework.

Eating: Loves rice cereal, and we've also tried bananas too.

Other fun facts: Loves to blow bubbles, grab Colson's ears and try to eat his nose, splashes in the tub, and smiles constantly! Sam was baptized on May 5th. He wore the same suit that Colson wore, and he was my first babe that didn't cry the whole time.

The Bug is 4!

Lilly-Belle celebrated her 4th birthday (or I should say birthday week) last week. Each time we celebrate a birthday, I am reminded at just how fast time passes and how quickly they grow up. Here are a few pictures of her celebrations!
