4 months!

Celeste is now 4 months old...well, she was over a week ago, but I'm catching up. Anyway, she is growing wonderfully, 65% for weight and 99% for height!!! She is 27 inches long! The doctor said that the height is their most inaccurate measurement, but even if they are a little off, that is still really good. I can't believe how tall my kids are! Especially since I'm only 5'6" and Justin is 5'9 1/2". I would say they get it from my side, since my dad and brothers are so tall. Anyway, she is such a sweet and happy girl. She has been smiling like crazy since she was a month old. All you have to do it say hi or smile at her and you will get a huge smile in return. She is giggling and once in awhile will laugh pretty heartily for Taylor. She's really close to sitting up on her own, not straight up by any means, but we can sit her on the ground leaning forward and she will stay that way for a long time without tipping over. She is rolling over and has been a tummy sleeper since just after she turned 2 months. It worried me at first because she couldn't roll from her tummy to her back, but there was nothing I could do about it. I tried a positioner, but she always managed to kick out of it and it ended up at the bottom of the crib and she would be on her tummy again. So, I gave up, and she's just fine. The only time it's no good is right now cause she is congested and it's harder for her to breathe on her tummy. I tried to put her on her back early this morning to help her, but she just rolled right back over. Stubborn child. But she's so cute, so it's okay, I'll forgive her. Anyway, she's so much fun, and we are just loving having her in our family.

Taylor's 3!!!

I know I'm like a month late, but Taylor turned 3 on August 30th and we went to the Dinosaur Park in Ogden and had a birthday party at the park to celebrate. Here are just a few pictures from the day.

My little boy is getting so big. I barely even remember him anymore when he was little, so today I had to go back and watch some video of some of his firsts. Taylor is talking like a pro now, he's quite the conversationalist. He loves Dinosaurs, Cars, and any movie with dogs in it. He loves to play outside and is already talking about building snowmen. He loves his little sister, and is already turning out to be the best big brother. I love my little boy and I'm excited to see him grow up, but I really do miss the little baby that made me a new mother.

Family Pics

Justin's cousin took our family pics. I'm really pleased with how they turned out, so here they are. If you want to check out other stuff she's done, click here. I think she's a very talented photographer.
