Sykes and Cooper Farm

Over the weekend we met up with some good friends and took all our kids to this farm for some fall festivities. We did a corn maze (and yes we got lost...but Kerry got us out!), animals, hayride, corn popper and play ground including a corn box (not sand box but corn box). We had an awesome time and the kids loved it. The weather was just perfect for the first weekend of October!

Labor Day Weekend Fun!

Started off our Labor Day weekend by going to the beach! This was the first time for Matthew and the girls haven't been since they were 1. We all had so much fun! Abby and Chloe cried when we left. They wanted to stay longer but Matthew was exhausted.

He's a Rocking Boy!

Matthew's been crazy about the wooden rocking horses that his Grandpa handmade. Every chance he gets he crawls over to them and plays with them. A few night ago he made his way onto one and the rocking just came naturally.

This video is especially for you Grandpa!

11 Months Old & Almost Walking

Maybe it's because he's the youngest or maybe it's just because the girls were a bit behind him, but I'm just not ready for my little man to be cruising all around my house. Alas I have nothing to do with his progress and whether I like it or not this little man will be 1 in less than a month and may be walking for his birthday. Its funny how we feel so different with our children. I remember we couldn't wait for the girls to walk. So excited!!! Don't get me wrong I am excited but its definitely different! He is already a handful and a world of a difference from my then so shy girls.

Finger Food

Matthew loves eating. He gets very jealous if you have food and he does not. I've started introducing finger food in the last few weeks. He has tried baby mum mums, puffs, bananas and now avocados. Here is a video I took yesterday of the kids at lunch!

Egg Decorating

We started off our Easter Week by decorating a few eggs with our neighbor. The girls had so much fun watching the eggs turning colors and then decorating with lots of stickers. We plan on doing another dozen this weekend!

I'm Back!

Its been a few months since I last blogged and I am hoping to get back to blogging on a regular basis. So much has happened in the past few months. The girls are full speed ahead at potty training. Abby picked up on it real quick and only wears diapers for nap and nighttime. Chloe fought me on it but I told her no more diapers this past Monday and now I'm proud to say she is only wearing diapers in her bed as well. Can't wait to only have one in diapers! Matthew is growing so much so fast. He is eating finger foods now (beginner one like puffs and small banana pieces) and starting to get on the move. He started sort of army crawling this week and he really is getting fast at it. His big sisters are already getting annoyed that he is stealing their toys and "No Matthew that is my toy" is becoming a common sentence in our house.
