4 months old

I lost my voice with makes treating patients very difficult so I got to stay home with this little guy. We had some good snuggle time on the couch. I cherish these moments because they grow up too fast!
 He is getting bigger by the minute. At 4 months he was 16lb 9oz (71%) and 27inches long (98%). He is getting better on his tummy and has actually started to enjoy it some. He is rolling from his belly to his back. He is starting to have more of a voice and lets us all know when he wants something, or more often when he doesn't want something (like his siblings in his face).
 Even though he growing rapidly he has a long way to go to catch up to his cousin!

Memorial Day Weekend

What a wonderful weekend! We heard it rained a lot at home but at the cabin it was beautiful until Monday. This was our first weekend at the cabin since the addition has been completed. We are all loving the extra space, the table to eat meals at and most of all the porch to kick back and relax in without the Minnesota bird biting.
 On Sunday everyone was out of the cabin except me, Jameson and Harrison. Jameson snuggled up and took a much needed nap on the couch.
 Our first weekend of the year can't be all play and no work. Trevor and my dad worked hard to get the docks all put in for the summer.
 And while they worked the kids and the dogs played.
 We finally got some of that rain on Monday and so off to the pool we went.  This was Harrison's first time in the pool and he loved it. Granted the warm tub is like bath water temp so he was a little spoiled by that. 
 The kids love the water slide. Olivia is getting better about going down by herself. They were all smiles.
 By the end of the couple hours little guy was ready for a nap!
We are looking forward to the rest of the weekends on Middle Cullen this summer!

Missing Tooth?

I have become the designated tooth puller. Tonight I yanked out Olivia's first tooth! She did not shed a tear. So was so excited to put her tooth under her pillow and wait to see what the tooth fairy would bring. Just look at that cute new smile!

Block Party

Tanglen had their annual Walk-a-thon and block party today. Kate and I took the boys down to the school for some fun!
 Ben and his buddy Jack walking the track during the walk-a-thon 
 While we had the boys at the school Olivia and Trevor had their father/daughter dance. These two divas had been waiting all week for this night. 
 This year Stefan and Addie Julien met them at the dance. I am not sure how much dancing these girls actually did. It sounds like they spent more time playing on the playground. Either way it was a great time and they got to have some quality time with their dads.

A New Adventure

Trevor started at Superdimension in 2009. Then about 3 years ago SuperD was bought by Covidien and most recently Covidien was bought by Medtronic in Dec. 2014 . Even through the changes in the company Trevor has stayed with them but it was time for a change.

On May 11th Trevor started his new job as a program manager with American Medical Systems (AMS). It was hard for him to walk out the door on Friday the 8th but after lots of celebrations and kind words from his co-workers he knew he was making the right choice. He has been there 2 weeks now and is really enjoying the new opportunities so we will just have to wait and see what the future will hold.

Mother's Day Weekend

Mother's Day weekend was really nice and pretty relaxing! We did a little cleaning, yard work and baseball but also had some quite time.
Trevor made brunch for me, my mom and Emily and Thomas. The baby cousins had a little quality playtime. They are so fun to watch now because they are at the age where they start to realize there is another baby on the floor with them.
I love The Chew! During my maternity leave I looked forward to noon with my friends at the Chew. That made this the perfect Mother's Day gift. I also got some beautiful new bedding to brighten our room in the summer months.
And it is not Mother's Day without some extra special gifts from the kids.
A sun catcher from Olivia
Beautiful flowers and vase with fun beads in the bottom from Jameson.

I am one lucky Mom!
