Everett is 6 months old

I cannot beleive this sweet little man has been a part of our family for half of a year already. I say it all the time, but he brings our family so much joy.  He is just a sweet, happy, smiley, loveable little guy. 

At 6 months old Everett is:
 15.5 lbs (12th percentile for weight)
27 inches long (62nd percentile for height)
Sitting up on his own for a few minutes at a time
Starting solids (he's tried avocado and sweet potato)
Sleeping 12-13 hours at night
Can put his own binky in his mouth
Rolls across the room
Is trying really hard to crawl (yikes)
Napping much better
A complete joy!!!!












And here is a picture of all three kids at six months old.  It's fun to see them side by side.  I think Everett is a mix of both Ethan and Alayna.

First Bite

We gave Everett his first taste of food a few days shy of 6 months.  We tried sweet potatoes and as you can see, he was not too happy about it :)  I tried avocado the next two times and he was much more receptive to that.








Get this stuff away from me!!!!

Finishing up 5 months

Since Everett turned 6 months this week I'd better post the rest of the pictures I took from when he was 5 months old :)

Happy 5th Birthday Alayna!

Alayna turned five this week. I can't beleive how quickly this past year flew by with her.  Last weekend we took her to Pretend City in Irvine to celebrate her birthday, and then out to dinner.  She chose BJ's because somehow that has become their special occasion place :)  She loved Pretend City and had a fun day.




I made her homemade cinnamon rolls for breakfast and she was so excited that I put fresh rose on the table just for her :)




On her actual birthday she had school, so she got to bring cupcakes.  I picked her up along with her friend Taelyn and we went to Chick fil et for lunch.  Matt met up with us as well. 


Later that evening we had a little party for her at the park.  Her cousins came and two of her little friends. We kept it simple, just had pizza and played and enjoyed the amazing rainbow cake that Jolene had brought out earlier that day. She was so cute, she looked up at me during her party and told me it had been the best birthday ever.  Thanks to everyone who made her feel special! Oh how I love my one and only girly!


















I couldn't pass up the opportunity to take a few pictures with my little babe in the golden light :)




Everett kept trying to grab Jerrod's beard, lol
