Our First Halloween

We have struggled for a few weeks over what we were going to do for Halloween. Phillip wanted the boys to dress up, I didn't care so much because they won't know the difference. After going back and forth, trying to decide what to do, we finally figured it out. Thanks to Aunt Adele, we had 2 Grand Canyon Jr. Park Ranger outfits. Hayden's fit pretty well. Carson's was too big, so we decided he could be a bear. We think they were adorable, but of course, what else would we think?

Here are some pictures from the boys' 1st Halloween.

First, we had our pictures taken right after we got dressed...

Then, we got them taken together...

Mommy and Daddy wanted their picture with us.

Gran came by before we went to the Fall Festival at church...

When we got to the Fall Festival, we saw Goodmommy, Gooddaddy, and Aunt Dodie.

Then we saw alot of our friends...

We had so much fun during our first Halloween, it wore us out!

4-month Checkup

The boys had their 4-month checkup on Friday. According to Dr. Skaug, they are doing great.

Some new stats... Hayden now weighs 15 pounds and is 26 1/2 inches long. Carson is starting to gain on Hayden a little, weighing in at 13 pounds & 6 ounces, and is 24 3/4 inches long.

They had to get shots at this visit, but it didn't seem as bad as the last time. We decided to try a little sugar water on the pacifier to see if it made a difference. It worked really well for Carson, he didn't even make a noise during the first shot, and only whined for a bit with the second two. Hayden was already unhappy to be there (he needed a nap), so the pacifier did nothing for him. But, he doesn't tend to take the pacifier much anyway.

So, all in all, everyone is doing great! Here is a picture of them that night in their pjs.

Four Months

The boys are 4 months old today. This picture was taken last Friday. They are growing so fast! We are going for our 4 month check-up on Friday, so at that time, we'll know just how much they've grown.

They are becoming much more interactive. They will smile and laugh. It is especially fun in the mornings right after they wake up. They will smile really big and talk to you. They are still doing the "ah-goos" and are starting to make other sounds that I can't quite figure out yet :). As I noted in another post, Hayden has rolled from his belly to his back, and a couple of weeks ago, Carson decided it was time for him to do this as well. They are both doing so good on their tummies! The day they become mobile is getting closer.

Well, that is about all I have for now, but after Friday, I'll post the latest stats on them.

For Pops

Pops left for Utah this morning. He is going to hunt and get some R&R. We sent this picture with him because we knew he would like it (who wouldn't like a picture of us :) ). And, it was so cute, Mommy decided to put it on our blog.
