Lawrence is 4 Months Old!!! (August 17, 2012)

Lawrence, you are 4 months old!!! Every day you reveal more and more of your sweet little personality!

It was a little harder for me to take pictures of you this month with your sock monkey because you kept grabbing him and trying to put him in your cute!!!!

At four months old, you:

*** are still wearing 3-6 or 6 month clothes and are wearing Pampers size 2 diapers

*** are now trying to put almost everything you can reach into your mouth

*** are getting better gross motor control of your arms and hands, and can now reach for and grasp objects

*** have started to lift your head up occasionally while you are eating to look at Mommy and smile... it is one of the sweetest things ever!

*** have rolled from back to front about five times in the past month

*** are allowing almost all women to hold you, but have started crying when men (other than Daddy) try to hold you

*** enjoy your time in the jumperoo (your feet touch the ground at the lowest setting) and you can
move yourself around in the circle while you look at and try to manipulate all the toys

*** are starting to enjoy tummy time a lot more and can now hold your head and chest up for five

*** love sitting in your new BLUE bumbo seat (thank you Lacy:)

Popsicle Party!!! (August 5, 2012)

Today was finally the day of your big popsicle party!!! Mommy and Daddy wanted to have a special party for you to celebrate our new house!!! We told you that you could invite all of your friends! Mommy made special popsicle invitations and then you helped me take them to the post office and put them in the mailbox!

Almost all of your friends were able to come...Keira, Ella, Liam, Adelyn, Baby Owen, Vash, Drake, Dahlia, and Tess! Lillian and Cassidy weren't able to come and Colin got sick at the last minute:(
Here are all the lunch baskets Mommy made for your friends:

Here is your basket up close:

And the contents of each basket:

Lawrence was also able to invite a friend, so his friend Ellie came too! Ellie looked so cute in her new popsicle shirt she wore just for the occasion:)

Here are some of Mommy's favorite pictures of you at the party!!! You had such a fun time and you look so happy in all the pictures! You also loved wearing the same outfit as Keira and Ella!!

We are so happy that you had such a great time with your friends at your popsicle party!

Lawrence is 3 Months Old!!! (July 17, 2012)

You are already three months old!!! I love this picture of you!! I can almost always count on a smile are such a happy little boy!!

At three months old, you:

**** weigh 13 1/2 pounds

**** now eat about every two hours during the day (rather than every three) because you are growing so fast, and can now sleep for a 6 hour stretch

**** are still wearing 3-6 or 6 month clothes and are wearing Pampers size 1 diapers

**** continue to smile so much and have now started to is the cutest sound!!! You first laughed with Daddy during your bath, and now you laugh with either of us or Briana a lot more often.

**** have been doing an awesome job during tummy time, and can now hold your head and chest up for 2 minute stretches

**** have discovered your fingers, and have been trying really hard to get them in your mouth, but you don't quite have that control yet

**** just love your sister so much! Whenever she is around, you watch her attentively and smile almost every time she interacts with you! The only exception is when Briana holds you. She just loves holding you and is getting pretty good at it, but you still look a little scared:

We all love you soooooooooooo much!!!!!!!
