4 Month Update

In September, Hoyt turned 4 months! His Dr. appointment stats:
Weight: 16.8 lbs (84%)
Height: 25.75 in (79%)
Yep, this kid is solid! He is such a happy baby and started sleeping really well through the night somewhere between 3 and 4 months. His personality is very laid back and he loves to laugh, smile, and coo at us. He is also a hit in public because he smiles and talks to everyone. He especially loves laughing at his big sister! He started rolling front to back right before 4 months, and I think it would have been much sooner if he would have had more tummy time, but with big sister around, and the move, he hasn't had much time on the floor.
Hoyt is still such a snuggly baby and loves to be held and cuddled, which I love. He likes to read stories, play with toys, and chew on his fingers and toys...everything goes in the mouth! We think he is the cutest little guy there is with his huge blue eyes and adorable smile!
Here are a few pictures from the week he turned 4 months.
My two handsome guys. :)

Lexie Turns 2!

In August Lexie turned 2! Things were crazy at the time with Bryan working away from home and just visiting on weekends. Luckily her Birthday fell on a Saturday so he could be home. Some of the Hoyt family came over to celebrate with us on her special day! Lexie loves the PBS show "Super Why" so here is my attempt at a "Super Why" cake. Not great, but she loved it so that was all that mattered!
Blowing out the candle and her cute little grin!
Nothing is better than a pizza party and she cooked us all some great food with her new kitchen!
What's a kitchen without food? She loves to cook!
She also loves her new dollhouse from Grandpa & Grandma Hoyt, and the princess pj's were a hit!
I think Lexie was a little spoiled, but despite a few terrible 2 side-affects, we love this little girl and are so happy to have her in our family. Because of the move and insurance changes etc. I haven't taken her in for her 2 year checkup, but we know she is tall compared to most kids her age. She has such a fun personality and loves to laugh and make her brother laugh too.
Lexie's very favorite things to do are sing and dance, and she knows words and actions to many songs. Some favorites are "Sunbeam", "Child of God", "ABC's", "Twinkle, Twinkle", "Happy Birthday" and many more. Lexie knows all of her colors and counts to 10. She loves reading stories, coloring pictures, learning ABC's on the computer, going to nursery, and going to the store. She is obsessed with trucks and really enjoyed riding with her Dad in the moving truck. On trash day she stands at the window to see the trash truck pick up the dumpster. She also loves animals and has a huge stuffed animal collection, but she really goes crazy when she sees real animals and wants to pet them. Also among her favorite things are slides, swings, playing at the park, and swimming. As you can see, Lexie has a love for life! She really enjoys spending time with her grandparents, aunts, uncles and cousins.
We love you Lexie and are grateful you are growing up and learning many new things!
