4 Months!

Not too much has happened in the past couple weeks... just lots of getting ready for Christmas and hanging out. Kayden had to get his 4 month immunizations. He handled them pretty well again. We found out that he weighs 14 lbs 5 oz. He is 24 3/4" tall and his head is 42 3/4cm. Here are some things he has been able to do lately:
  • He has rolled over from his tummy to his back... I think he even went from his back to his tummy once. If he really didn't do it on his own he is close. He constantly rolls on his side.

  • He somehow turns around in circles when he is laying on the floor. I think it is a very slow process though!

  • He laughs and it is the cutest thing I have ever heard!
  • One day when I handed him to Phil he turned around and reached for me! He loves me! Phil claims he was just hungry though. haha whatever makes him feel better!
  • He has been sleeping through the night for months now... except every now and then he will get up once after 5-7 hours. Can't complain at all.
  • He is pretty good at grabbing and pulling on things.
  • He loves to play with his toys and especially his blue stuffed puppy.

  • Bath time is super fun for him. He will sit and splash and kick like crazy. He is constantly trying to put his face underwater and drink it. Silly kid.

  • When he has tummy time he will stick his butt in the air and act like he is crawling with his legs. He is lacking in the upper body though. I don't want this kid crawling quite yet even though he seems determined to be able to move around on his own. He's still so young for crying out loud!

  • I also decided to feed him some baby cereal which he took to right away. Here are some pics of how cute he was while we were feeding him...
Sometimes when he smiles he will try to hide his face and act all bashful... it's adorable!

Our first big Christmas tree... It was loads of fun to pick out and decorate together! It will be even more fun next year when Kayden can help us. All he does is stares at it all the time. I also decided to buy some pink and silver ornaments for my little tree. Doesn't this tree fit me so well with the pink on it?!

This year for Thanksgiving we flew out to Oregon to spend time with Phil's family. It's been two years since we've been to Oregon so it was good to finally go back. We got to spend a whole week out there relaxing and having fun. Kayden enjoyed his first time on the airplane. While we were taking off he kept looking out the window and getting all excited. The rest of the short flight he spent sleeping, thank goodness. We had a lot of fun visiting his family. We got to spend time eating great food for turkey day, shopping, freaking out over a car that we thought was gonna catch on fire, playing games, visiting friends, chillin with the missionaries ;) hehe, and eating lots of Chipotle (Phil's favorite). We got to play a new extremely fun game called Things. By the end of the game I think we all had laughed so hard we ended up crying. I would definately recommend playing this game.

Phil and I even got to go on a date Friday night. We left Kayden at Grandma's so we could have our own fun. His mom gave us tickets to go see a Blazer's game. We had awesome seats... only 16 rows back! It was my first NBA game, since the Harlem Globetrotters don't really count. It was definately a good experience with loads of fun! Thanks Shirley for giving us your tickets. We really appreciated getting out and having a break from Kayden.

Look how close we were!

These noise makers were tons of fun!! I felt like I was a kid again... Phil would probably say I acted like one too!
