We had the best Christmas this year. Trey and I woke up at 7 a.m. waiting on the girls and we started to hear them at 7:30. Ella and Layla came running down the stairs to see what Santa brought. 

 Ella was first. In their stockings they all got fingernail polish, candy, coloring books, and quick dry paint sticks.

 Santa brought the big girls a Wii U, Lydia got a Peppa pig, and Loralei got a bouncer.

 Quick picture before everything is messy!
 And go...

My little reader lover the Dork Diaries series.

They all got new jackets for Colorado this Summer.

They all got shopkins pillows.

And of course we all had to have Legos. They are Lego obsessed.

After we got everything cleaned up it was time to get ready, cook a few things for lunch and wait on everyone to come over.

All the grand kids.

 And then it was present time again.
 More Legos, yay!!!

After everyone left we  cleaned up again and enjoyed playing with all of our new gifts. They love the Wii U, I am so glad we got it. And Lydia got a Peppa Pig house and car that she is obsessed with. It was such a great day. Nothing makes me happier than making my kids happy!

Loralei is 4 Months Old!

Sweet girl, your 4th month brought a lot of firsts. You had your first Halloween and your first Thanksgiving. For Halloween yuo were a flower. 

You are still a great sleeper. You take several naps during  the day and sleep from 9:00 pm until 7 am when i wake you up to feed you and get sisters to school. 

You are awake more though. You are full of smiles and love to "talk".

You weigh 18 pounds 10 ounces and aer 26" long. You wear a size 3 diaper and size 12-18 month clothes. I have officially boxed up all other smaller sizes and will have a big garage sale this Spring I hope. Not goint to lie, I am pretty sad that there will be no more babys to wear all of it.

Funny story: the other morning I woke you up and changed your diaper and you were wearing Lydia's size 5 diaper that Daddy had accidentally put on you. It wasn't that big on you!

You love bath time.

And you almost held hands with who could be your futue boyfriend You will at least be good friends like his big brother and your big sister.

You are still nursing like a champ (obviously)!

You love your big sisters and are tolerating them holding you more. You can hold your head up so I think that helps. You have also started sitting in your bumbo, but you aren't a big fan of it. In true tradition, it is already too small. I mean, they really need to make a plus size bumbo!

We took these the day you turned four months. Sweet girl we love you so much!!
