Our Weekend

Friday night we didn't do much. We watched game 7 of the world series, Go Cards!, and went to bed early. Saturday morning I took some pictures of my friends 2 week old baby. Coby was out getting a part for our broken washing machine. Yay for a $6 part instead of having to buy a whole new machine.
We watched the Hogs pull out an ugly win over Vandy and Keller tried out his activity center. His face tells all. It wasn't his favorite. He's still a little small for it.

Saturday night Keller went to bed and Coby made us homemade pizza and we watched a movie. Something we haven't done since Keller's been born.
This morning we got up and went to church then to lunch.
The boys took a nap on the couch.

Our churches fall festival is tonight. We've had cookies in the oven all afternoon for the cake walk. Keller will wear his Halloween costume but I'll save pictures of that for its own post.

Just a swinging

The other afternoon Keller and I went on a walk. We stopped by the neighborhood park and watched the big kids play. Then I decided to see if he was big enough to sit in the bucket swing. He fit right down into it. He seemed to enjoy it. He never really smiled while in it but he didn't scream either which I took to be a good thing. Maybe he was just taking it all in.

Keller is developing so fast it's unbelievable sometimes. He's finally begun to realize he can hold onto things and actually manipulate his surroundings. He has always loved his play gym and the music/light toy that is on it. He would lay there and watch and talk to it but would get upset when the music turned off. Now he realizes he can grab ahold of the rings and toys and hit and grab them. The other day I was in the kitchen and I noticed the music was off but that he was perfectly content playing and entertaining himself for the first time. Who knows what he'll be doing next.

Pumpkin Patch

Thursday Kellers school was out so I took off. It just happened that our friends Dee and Weston were going to the pumpkin patch that day. We met up at Chick-fil-a for some lunch then headed to the patch. We were able to see pig races. Weston enjoyed them and I bet Keller will too, next year.

We went on a hayride. Keller stayed in his carrier for most of our time there. See the little ears of his owl hat poking out?

We saw some farm animals.

And finally we got to pick our pumpkin.

It was a great day. Keller took a good nap when we got home. Cant wait for next year!

Day in the life...

Typically during the week...
6:00-7:30 a.m. Keller wakes up and eats a little then goes back to bed. Coby and I get up and get ready. I get Keller out of bed, diaper changed, and ready. I feed Keller a little more before school then Coby takes him to school and goes to work. I finish getting ready and head out the door.
7:30-4:00 Keller at school. Mommy and Daddy at work.
4:00 p.m. Either Coby or I pick Keller up from school. Whoever gets off work first.
4:30 p.m. Wash bottles, pump supplies, get dinner ready.
5:00-6:00 Dinner, dishes, playtime (sometimes we have an evening activity i.e. church that throws our day off)
6:15 p.m. Coby cleans kitchen while I give Keller a bath and get ready for bed.
7:00 p.m. Whole family heads to our bed. I know we are old. I feed Keller and we play a little.
8:00 p.m. Keller goes to bed.
8:00 -10:00 p.m. tv/computer time
10:00 p.m. I try to pump before bed.
10:00 p.m SLEEP
1:00/2:00 a.m. Keller gets up and has a quick nap and quickly goes back to sleep. I pump.
4:00 a.m. (sometimes) Keller eats a little and goes back to bed.
Weekends are a little different. We sleep a little later on Saturdays (usually with him in our bed). Keller usually takes a nap around 10, 1, and 4 and goes to bed at 8. Sunday mornings we go to church.
Would love to have "play time" more during our day but there just doesn't seem to be enough hours in the day.

Keller 3 months!

So I've only posted one time in the past month! Things have been so busy. Keller starting back to school, me back to work, and a change of seasons has really filled up our days. I got a message from a friend the other day saying how she hadn't talked to me in awhile, 3+ weeks to be exact. I seemed like I had just talked to her. Life is flying by.
I can't believe you are 3 months today. You weren't to interested in taking this picture. It looks like you are loosing some of your hair but I think it's just brushed over. It is getting lighter though.

We went downtown today to have some professional pictures taken. The photographer kept saying how laid back you were. This has always been your personality. You are usually content unless you are tired, hungry, or board. I think I have figured out your cries. Super mad when you are hungry, you fuss a little when you are board, and you have short loud cries with your eyes closed when tired. You haven't developed a "stranger danger" fear yet. Going to school might have helped that, but as of now you will go to just about anyone and smile and coo. Your teachers at school always comment on how you are so observant, and have so many expressions. The other night at church an older lady was talking to you and you were just hamin' it up. Talking, cooing, smiling. She got a thrill out of it and said "why his entire head turns into one big dimple when he smiles!".
You are still tolerating tummy time fairly well and are able to hold up your head for a good amount of time. You are still rolling tummy to back but haven't mastered back to tummy yet. You can sit in your bumbo chair for a short period. You head control is pretty good but your bottom slips around in it. I got it out the other night when we were in the kitchen watching daddy cook dinner.
I'm sure this won't be the last time you are in the kitchen with daddy.

You are starting to notice your feet although you are reaching out for them yet. This afternoon you were in my lap, looked down, saw your foot and started to move it around and track it with your eyes. It was like you were saying "oh look, there's my foot, oh look, I can move it from side to side". Too cute.

You still love your bath time. You love for water to be poured on you and to kick and splash.

You are sleeping pretty well during the night getting up about once to quickly eat and go back to sleep. I think you might sleep through the night but I haven't really pushed it. I have been letting you sleep on your tummy during nap times. This is how I found you today.

You are wearing size 0-3 month clothes for the most part. 3-6 months sometimes but this is still a little to big. Your school let out early last Friday so daddy kept you for the afternoon. This is what I can home to. All my boys in the bed watching a movie.

Daddy was feeding you a bottle and you were almost holding it all by yourself! This was surprising to me because I hardly if ever see you take a bottle (you are still nursing at home).

Tonight we are watching the Arkansas vs. Aurun game. As of now we are ahead, GO HOGS. You really like to watch tv but I try to no let you. It's scary how mezmorized you get. I keep telling your daddy how it will turn your brain to mush but we do make an exception during the game sometimes.

I can't believe how fast you are growning little man!
