Company Christmas Party

Tonight we had Jake's company Christmas party at the Civic Center. We had dinner, played games, & they gave out door prizes. They also had candy for the kids, a blow up bounce house with a slide, and Santa. As soon as Santa came out, Kade immediately started crying. I was hoping this year he would like Santa. So we couldn't get him to sit on Santa's lap, but Kolt was easy to convince!

This is what Kade did all evening. He jumped in the bounce house and slid down the slide. When it was his turn to get out and let other kids come in, he would sneak past the man at the door and keep jumping!

Kolt almost slept through the whole party. He woke up once to eat, and then went back to sleep. He didn't mind Santa one bit!

Kolt Swinging

Kolt very rarely will sit in his swing, so it's a nice surprise when he falls asleep in it. Then I can get a few things done, instead of holding him all day long, which he prefers!

First Thanksgiving

Today was Kolt's first Thanksgiving. We spent lunch with Mimi & Papa, Uncle Bryan, Aunt Donna, Chloe, Mema, Pepa & Nicholas at Mimi & Papa's house. Then we went to Jake's parent's house for dinner. Jake's brother Kim, his wife Shari, and our nephews Kyle and Mik got to meet Kolt for the first time while we were there. We had a lot of great food today and fun visiting with all our family.

Potty Trained

Kade is completely potty trained now! We are very excited to only have one in diapers. He started wearing pull ups 2 months ago and would go to the bathroom off and on but nothing consistent. So we just kept encouraging him to use the bathroom. He was completely potty trained at day care, but for some reason he wouldn't use the bathroom at home. So last weekend Kade asked to wear his underwear instead of the pull ups, and he's been in them ever since! I put him in pull ups at night for the first few nights, but he was always dry in the mornings. So we decided to get rid of the pull ups all together. He hasn't had any accidents and is doing so good!

2 Week Checkup

Today was Kolt's 2 week checkup. He is doing great! He weighs 9 lbs. 7 oz., and is 21 1/4 in., which can't be right, since he was 21 1/2 in. at birth. He must have been curled up today! We came home from the hospital exactly 2 weeks ago, and Kolt was 8 lbs. 1 oz. when we went home. So he's gained 1 lb. 6 oz. in just 2 weeks! I guess I'm going to have another big boy. They scheduled all the 2 week old babies for appointments this afternoon, and Kolt was by far the biggest baby there!

Also tonight was Kolt's first trip to church. We had services tonight instead of Wednesday night due to Thanksgiving. He did really well and mostly slept right through it.

Kade was listening to one of his CD's, and it got really quiet. I found him sound asleep in the floor! He must've been worn out.

Strep Throat...Again

It's been a month since Kade had strep throat, and he went through all his antibiotics. But he started running a fever again over the weekend, and we noticed white bumps in the back of his throat. He said his throat didn't hurt, but we knew there was something wrong. So I took Kade to the doctor tonight to get him checked out. It turns out he has strep throat again. So I don't know if he just happened to get it again or if he never got over the first bout. So we got antibiotics again and hopefully this time it'll go away for good.

Two Weeks Old

Here is Kolt at 2 weeks old. I take him for his 2 week checkup on Tuesday, so I'll have measurements then. He is getting so big!

Kade & Kolt checking each other out! Kade always gets excited and says, "Kolt's looking at me!" He loves it when Kolt pays him some attention!

My little boy and my big boy!

Kade is so proud of his little brother. He's always saying, "I love my baby brother!" Or telling people, "That's my baby." It's so sweet to see them together. I know they're going to be the best of friends!
