4 month stats 

We had B’s four month well visit this morning… Perfect report, and he’s still our biggest baby so far… Weighed in at 16lbs even and 25.5 inches tall! So thankful for a healthy Bear :)  

 Cutie patootie!

I can’t find any stats for Maddox at 4 months, but Hatcher was 14lbs 8oz and 24inches! 

I can’t believe my BABY is already 4 months… Time has got to slow down!!! 

4 months

Four months with our sweet sweet Bear. He’s so great.. The perfect little brother. Happy and chunky and easy and chill and tolerant and smiley. We are all still crazy about him! He’s transitioning to eating every 4 hours instead of 3 and it’s incredible how different that feels.. One hour really makes a huge difference! We had a fun month… Celebrating Justins birthday, Halloween, football games, a trip to Atlanta, the pumpkin patch… It’s been a good one! He’s mastered rolling from front to back and tries going from back to front, but can’t quite get it. Honestly though, he doesn’t get a ton of time to practice unless I can stop what I’m doing to protect him from his crazy brothers :) I am so thankful. I still find myself not believing that I am really the mom to these boys, but am just so grateful for the privilege. To all the older ladies in the grocery store telling me to, “cherish these days”… I am! 100%. This job is so hard and yet so incredible and rewarding. I really do love it! 

Here are some photos from our month.  

   Funny story: I was cooking dinner and Maddox came into the kitchen and said, “mom, Bear was really cold so i covered him up with a blanket. He was sooo cold!” Looked over and saw this 😂😂 That’s a king sized blanket! 


And here are just a few examples of the tolerance I mentioned earlier…  








  Cracker crumbs dumped all over his face. And it was a good 20 mins before I discovered it 😳.




“it ain’t easy being the little bro….”

I love you so much Bear! Praying daily that you grow to be a strong, kind, Godly man. Happy four months sweet boy! 😘 


A-hind and thank you 

These are my two favorite words/phrases the boys say right now. Hatcher is starting to talk more every day, and Maddox pretty much talks non-stop. A-hind is how Maddox says behind… “I’m right here mom, ahind the couch.” Justin noticed he said it like that and it’s our fav :) I will be really sad when he starts saying it correctly.   

 You are one cute and funny kid, Maddox… Gosh! LOVE you!  

Hatchers favorite thing to say is thank you. He literally says that more than anything else i think. I give him his food, “thank you”, Maddox hands him a toy, “thank you”, we go through a drive thru, “thank you”… And it’s soo adorable! Like seriously I wish I could bottle it up and keep it forever. Y’all, hatcher is gonna be a little heart breaker… He is just so stinking cute!

 I seriously have the most incredible kids… So so thankful! 

The fair 

Justin and I were so excited to take Maddox to the fair this year! He had a lot of fun last year, but we knew he’d have even more fun this year bc he was finally tall enough to ride most rides! We decided to leave the two little boys with Justin’s mom {thanks Kiki!} so we didn’t have to worry about pushing a stroller or taking nursing breaks.. I was a little sad because Hatcher really would have enjoyed it, but it was definitely the right call and so good to have some 2 on 1 time with Maddox. We went with one of Maddox’s favorite little friends so that was really fun for him too! 

When we got there we debated on how many tickets to purchase and finally decided on the largest ticket package… We got in and the first ride we saw was the carousel. We hopped on, thinking it’d be a good slow start…. About half way through Maddox started crying and I held him for the rest of the “ride”….. I got off and told Justin we may have overshot on the largest ticket package 😂 
 He did warm up though and rode a bunch of rides… As long as they weren’t too fast! He is so cute and I loved seeing him get so excited about everything… He kept saying, “Mom! Dad! Come look at this… You will not believe it!!!!” We saved our last tickets for the Ferris wheel which was my favorite! Such a good day with 2 out of my 4 fav boys :)    

 Wore these boys out!   


Maddox is really into referee-ing good words vs. bad words… He gets on to me every time I say stupid, or gosh, or ridiculous (I can’t convince him ridiculous isn’t actually a bad word 😂). I have no clue where it came from, but he has coined his own “cuss word”, sugarnuts. He’ll drop something and say, “oh sugarnuts”. I about died laughing the first time he said it!! Well once i figured out he said sugarnuts, and not sh*tternuts. This kid y’all, is the funniest! I seriously can’t hold back the laughter sometimes… Hearing his thought process is just too much 😂 love you, Maddox  


Saturday selfie.

I am guilty. I love a good selfie with my kids. They always seem to do better at wanting to the take the photo and smiling when they can see themself on the front camera… I didn’t realize just how early the front camera would work for a smiley selfie :) Bear has already caught on!   

  Apparently this week is international baby wearing week… I was taking a pic of B in the ergo {which he loves by the way} and this was his reaction when he saw himself.

   I mean, how cute is he? 

The older boys love them too!  


3 months

When I think about my favorite age for babies, 3 months is always kind of at the bottom of the list. They’re out of the snugly newborn stage, but they can’t do much yet. Reality is though, Bear is 3 months old and I am eating it up! He is so much fun y’all! Laughing and smiling and talking… All that and he can’t go anywhere! I can walk away and know he will be right where I left him when I get back :) What the heck am I thinking hating on the 3 month stage?! Maybe it’s my favorite? He’s not talking back or climbing or opening all the boxes of yogurt raisins or unrolling the toilet paper or peeing all over the toilet seat…. I could go on all day! I think I just forgot how sweet and easy this stage is. And Bear is exceptionally sweet and easy! Go with the flow, loves to be held, but is totally cool with laying on the play mat for 45 minutes talking to the toys too. He sleeps great, eats great.. Gosh we are just so in love with this little guy! His schedule is still basically the same. Eats every 3 hours during the day and sleeps about 11-12 hours at night. I can’t believe it’s already been 3 months, and yet it feels like he’s been here forever! Here are a bunch of photos from our month!  



 Cousin Nels :) 

    He likes sucking on his knuckles. Maddox and Hatcher did the same thing around this age… Didn’t stick for either of them, we’ll see if it does this time.

Happy THREE months sweet sweet Bear. You are loved by so many and are the perfect little brother. So thankful for you and pray for you to grow up into a strong man of God. 😘  
   We were at the dr last week for an ear infection, and he weighed in at 14lbs even :)
