Happy Father's Day!

Our Father's Day tradition for the last 3 years has been a trip to the Zoo. The first year, Finn was just 6 weeks old.  He was so tiny!

 Family train ride! Sidney Claire wasn't interested in picture taking, she was a little annoyed she was awoken from her nap in the stroller to ride the train:-) This picture really shows how beautiful Finn's eyes are.

 didn't mean to cut off Jeff's head, but this pic of Sidney Claire is just too cute not to post
 Daddy and his babies
 That afternoon we went for our first family bike ride.  Jeff and I are really trying to get into shape and the kids loved it.  Finn was really sad when we got home, he just couldn't understand why we couldn't keep going.  Hopefully soon, we will be in good enough shape to go more than just a mile, haha!

And here's  a picture collage of me with my Dad and him with Sidney Claire.  Hope everyone had a great Father's day!

4 Months

Sidney Claire, you are 4 months old! Time is going by so fast and you are just growing and learning so much every single day.  I love watching you start to play with your toys and you hardly take your eyes off your big brother for a second.  With both you and your brother 4 months has been the magic time that you suddenly go from newborn to a baby with personality.  I love watching yours develop :-).

weight: 13lbs 7oz
length: 27 inches
eating:  You take 6oz of formula every 3-4 hours during the day and most of the time one during the night.  We switched you from gentlease to soy formula this month and you seem to be spitting up less, but you still have to wear a bib almost constantly.  I've started sewing you bibs and they have all turned out pretty cute.
sleep: Oh where did my good sleeper go?  I swear you slept better your first 6 weeks than you have since.  Some nights you sleep all night and others you are up 3 times. Mostly, you go to sleep between 7 and 8p wake up around 2ish and then back to sleep until 6-7a.  There is really no rhyme or reason on the nights you wake up multiple times. Daddy and I are trying to get you on a more strict schedule to see if that helps. 

 Big Brother loves getting in your bed.

 Quick comparision.... Finn was definately chubbier but they are both the cutest babies I've ever seen!
