As Jen was waking from having her wisdom teeth taken out I could not resist taking a picture.( I know she is going to kill me for this) She reminded me of those national geographic shows when the tranquilize the animals and all the animals can do is look around. She was a trooper and everything went great. I cannot wait for her to be back on her feet. It is times like these that I really appreciate what she does all day.

Summer Fun!

Allison graduated from Preschool a month ago and "summer fun" has been in full swing ever since! Zachary is officially potty goal for the summer. We drove to Utah to visit Grandma Menlove. We also had lots of fun with Uncle Stevie, Uncle Dodo and Auntie Kenna. We also saw Great-Grandma Menlove who met Joshua for the first time. We met up with our friends the Lewis' and their sweet family. The kids were great travelers and we all had a wonderful time. The day after we got home from Utah, Emmy, BennyBoo and Gracie arrived. We spent three days at Auntie Nora's house and had the best 4th of July ever. We loaded all the kids on the back of bikes and rode to friends house to watch a pretty amazing parade. That night we got back on the bikes and rode to the beach to watch the fireworks. There were lots of laughs, lots of late nights, and lots of fun! This summer we have been doing a lot of relaxing, swimming, and just enjoying our time together, and it's not over yet!

4 Months!

Joshua turned 4 months on Monday the 7th. He has his check-up next week so I am anxious to see how long he is and how much he weighs. As you can see he is still skinny and very long. Some of his nicknames include: string bean, daddy long legs (given by auntie Em) and Mr. Smiles. He smiles all the time and at everything which is a lot of fun. He definitely lets us know when he is not happy about something, but is usually easily soothed. He loves to be on is tummy which my other two never much liked, and has just started rolling over. There are days that I wish time would stand still because it is all going way too fast, but it is also fun to watch him grow and develop a personality. We have already had a fun filled summer, so I will post soon on all our fun adventures! At four months Josh weighs 12lbs. 6oz, which is the 10%. Very similar to where his sister fell on the charts!
Joshua 4 months
Zachary 4 months
Allison 4 months
