So many milestones

I suppose with five children a busy household is a given. Lately it seems like we are just hitting one milestone after another. Today my baby is 3 months old! Time has flown with him. He is so strong and talking all the time. He will sleep all night about three nights out of the week. I went to take a picture of him for his monthly photo shoot and could not find the hat. I found one similar and took it anyway. I also decided to leave him in just a diaper so that he could show off his fat rolls. Hey, why not? It's the only time in his life that it will be socially acceptable, not to mention I didn't want him to spit up on clean pajamas. So, if you need a reminder of what he looked like one month ago, click here. Here is Dillon at 3 months!
Another milestone tonight was Dillon's first taste of cereal. I know it is early for cereal but he was spitting up so much tonight and has been so hungry lately that I thought the rice might help settle his tummy. He loved it! He was a bit impatient, as he is used to the flow from the bottle, but he gobbled it down! Here are my two favorite shots.

I love the cross eyes look! Hilarious.

Seth brought his report card home. It really was not the best. He is having a hard time concentrating in school and it is really showing in his grades. We are working on that. While we do work on that, we are celebrating each success. He received the "Good Citizenship" award. Seth is such a friendly, helpful little boy. I am so proud of him.

I also thought he would like to share his current passion. Seth wants to make movies. Not when he grows up, he wants to make movies now. His first ideas have been greatly inspired by his favorites. The most recent is Harry Potter 8 - Return of Voldemort. The idea, for you Harry fans, is that Harry sees a dementor and when he tries to vanquish him, nothing happens. It did not work because it was not a dementor, it was Voldemort. Here is the cover of his book/movie. The medium changes all the time between those two.
Caleb really wants to write also, but using a different outlet. He has an email and he wants a blog, like his sister. He checks his email faithfully (he wants more everyone!) and is working on earning the blog. Caleb writes reluctantly at school so we have a deal. If he brings up his writing grade for the next marking period he can have a blog. All three older kids love getting on the computer. This truly is a different generation, more so than I could ever have imagined.
Brooklyn also earned the "Good Citizenship" award and was on the "Honor Roll". We are so proud of her. I wanted a picture but she couldn't find her certificates and she said we could wait to update her info because she and I are spending some time together on Saturday. We will take some pictures and give more information then.

Ayden mimics everything we do and say (oh dear - huh). He is using complete sentences like - my turn, I want on (the light) and I don't want this. Very opinionated, our little man. He also is imitating what he sees while he practices on the potty.

A Tad Pathetic

Ayden came down with some kind of stomach bug early Monday morning and it has spread. Poor Bobby now has it. Any of you that know Bobby know he gets incredibly ill when he gets sick. I stayed home from work today so I could take care of the sickos. Ayden is doing better but still has a bit of the bug. Bobby just looks miserable.

Ayden and Dillon hanging out watching TV (I didn't bother putting pants on him - we had five diaper changes in 3 hours)

Bobby decided to hang out with me on the couch. Yeah, he needs to just go back upstairs to bed

Ayden told Daddy he was sorry for getting him sick. Poor boys.
One more photo -- hello Papa! My dad picked out this outfit and it was so adorable. Dillon wore it to church on Sunday. He's so cute no matter what but he looks like a little man here.

On Sunday, February 2, Bobby blessed Dillon at church. His parents were able to be there and his father stood in the circle. It was a beautiful blessing and the part that stood out to both of us was that he was blessed that he would not suffer the afflictions of his fathers. Bobby and I constantly worry about the boys having diabetes like him and we feel so grateful that Bobby was prompted to say that in Dillon's blessing. He is so big already and growing so fast. He seems to be a healthy, happy boy. Here are some pictures from the day:

Dillon still had his hat on here. Daddy took it off, he said it looked sissy.

Caleb wanted to help me take some pictures, I think this one turned out pretty good.

Dillon has a sneaky smile here, I love it.
I love this one, it looks so paparazzi. "No pictures please, I like my privacy."
And of course, as my sister said, we had to take the typical 'Mormon Family' photo
