Carly's 3 Month

Carly has been doing great. She's sleeping through the night and has been since about 8-9 weeks. She goes to bed around 10:30 and wakes up around 8 to 8:30. The boys love to help out if I ask. Landon still tries to console her when she's upset. Cody will try and stick her pacifier in her mouth when she's sleeping (and she doesn't even take a pacifier too much). Carly really does seem to be getting so big so quickly!! It's like the first couple of months just flew by! She's smiles a lot and loves sucking on her hands. She sucks the 2nd and 3rd fingers on her left hand and sucks her thumb on her right hand. She'll "talk" and her favorite thing is to look at your face. She's so fun to make laugh and sometimes I find myself doing silly things just to get her to laugh. Is there anything better than a laughing baby? She likes to be undressed and she has been known to be a little demanding. For example, one time I wasn't paying attention to her. I was watching TV. When I looked down at her, she had been frowning but right when she noticed me paying attention to her, she gave me this big smile as if to say, "Hey, thanks for looking at me!"
She is such a sweety and such a blessing in our lives!
Here she is hanging out while I'm cooking.
Stretching in the morning
Look at this smile!
Can you believe this face!! So gorgeous!
Can you tell I'm a proud Mommy? :)

Things To Do When It's Cold Outside

Run around "naked" (as Landon likes to say). Thankfully naked means take off everything but your underwear.
Go out to eat and watch the guys make pizza
Play with the "Cody" bugs
Take pics with your sister and try to stay still so Mom can attempt a photo opportunity
Do lots of reading
Share beds
Play with new toys bought with Christmas money (Thanks Great Granddad and Grandma). Landon picked a puzzle. Surprise, surprise!
Put the leggings that belong to your sister's outfit on your head instead.

Coldest Weather EVER!

This week has been pretty crazy! On Tuesday, it started snowing. We were supposed to get even more on Wednesday but it never came. However, it was cold. Very, very cold!!! And schools/work ended up being cancelled for 4 days! Of course John got to go to work everyday because he's special like that. He did not get off. However, there were some business's that were without gas and a lot of houses that were too. And pipes began to freeze. We have been lucky and have not had any pipes freeze.
The boys got to go sledding for the first time ever. On Wednesday, I brought them over to my parents house. We went to a hill that I always went sledding on growing up. We only stayed maybe 10 minutes because it was COLD!!!! The boys had a lot of fun. Landon went down with my Dad first and I took Cody down for his first time. It was really funny because Cody was really nervous and as we were going down, he screamed this really girly scream. But then he started laughing and was okay. Carly stayed with my Mom at their house because like I said, it was COLD!!!
This was pretty much all the snow we got. Not much!
And this was the temperature.
