4 Months Old!

Every week I feel like I want to start out the blog by saying how busy we have been, but I am beginning to accept that BuSy is just our new life! The boys are 4 MONTHS OLD!

Ashton is growing so fast! He is 12 pounds 15 ounces and 24 1/2 inches long. He will be growing out of his 0-3 month clothing very soon! All the summer rompers we have bought are 3-6. He wore his first pair of 3-6 pants the other day and they were just a bit long! Everything looks so big hanging in the closet, but when I wash it up and try it on... it fits! Ashton is getting more comfortable using his voice and will have conversations with you. He smiles every moment he can and LOVES the ceiling fan in our dining room. Ashton has had a couple nights where he goes down to bed at 9-9:30 and sleeps until 5. now if we could get both to do it the same nights, we will be HaPpy!

Aiden likes to stay busy with his hands and seems to be always moving. He weighs 12 pounds on the dot and is 24 inches long. He is holding onto toys and starting to bring them to his mouth. Aiden is wearing 0-3 month clothes, but will be moving into 3-6 months like his brother. He also wore his first pair of 3-6 month pants the other day! Aiden smiles and uses his voice and is a bit louder than his brother while he is not as interested in the ceiling fan. Aiden is definitely the lighter sleeper of the two and wakes more often through the night. He goes right back to sleep with his pacifier and has slept for 6-7 hours straight!

It is so fun watching the boys grow and develop each day! Every week there is something new and we are just amazed that these are the two little boys we brought home from the hospital 3 months ago!

Ashton likes to lounge on the couch when he isn't busy playing or sleeping. Speaking of sleeping, He slept through his bath one night. We were out and about right up until his bath time. He was sleeping in his car seat and I thought for sure taking him out and getting him undressed would wake him up. Nope. He slept all through his bath until we were getting him dressed. Then he ate and went right back to bed for the night.

I Have a feeling that in the years to come, all the little boy shoes will not be this neatly aligned when I come into the house! Adam and I went golfing and to dinner with Elly and Price last weekend. When we came home the boys were bathed, fed, and in bed with their shoes "all put away". Too cute! Yes... Ashton's shoes are bigger than Aiden's.

The boys just hanging out waiting to go to Eau Claire to visit Uncle Dave, Aunt Missy and Elle!

With the weather getting nicer, we are finding that Ashton and Aiden like to be outside. When either are fussy, a brief walk outside in the stroller or bjorn is all it takes to calm them down and often put them asleep.

All "the boyz" and Nizzer hanging outside on the deck.

Look at Aiden's glowing blue eyes!

Ashton has baby blues as well!

On Sunday we went to some friends for a Pre-Memorial Day grill out. They have a little girl that is a month younger than the boys. We liked trying out Reese's toys!
Ashton tried out the jump-a-roo and liked it!

Aiden thought her play mat was pretty cool as well.

So, when we woke up in Monday, the first thing Adam did was go downstairs and get our jump-a-roo to put it together. We also have cousin Elle's exer-saucer that we brought up. With a pillow to touch the ground and some blankets for padding, they do great and like their "new toys".

Aiden just hangs out and watches T.V.


If anyone knows Adam, you know he LOVES bonfires and being around water. He was in heaven while at Nate and Brooke's. Here we are by the fire and behind us is Lake Menomin. WE are going to be very busy in a few years as there was 5 babies there under a year and the older older kiddos were fishing!

The Family (missing the Iz)

See. I told you Adam was in heaven. Look at his smile ;)

Adam just reminded me... One more big piece of news for the week!!!! The boys have made the "Little Angels" Calendar for the year of 2012! Over $2100 dollars has been raised for the Children's Hospital of MN and we couldn't be prouder. Thanks for all the votes!

This week is a sort week and the school year is winding down! We have nine days left, and of those nine, three are fun days and field trips. I cannot wait to be home all summer with my two favorite little boys!!!
