Blake at 3 months

Blake will be 3 months old next Tuesday, October 25. Time has flown. He is getting so big!
He is filling out and has fly-away hair. He is super smiley and happy most of the time. So mellow and content. Oh, he giggles too! The best sound in the world! Love it! These pictures were taken around 2 months. He has filled out even more since then!

People say he looks like Ryan but he looks a lot like Garrett's 3 month picture too! He must belong in this family somewhere.

He is sleeping mostly through the night too, which makes for a happier, saner set of parents. Here are his 2 month stats:
Length-23 inches (55th percentile)
Weight-11 pounds, 14.5 ounces (55th percentile)
Head circumference- 41 cm (75th percentile)
My boys sure do have big heads! Haha! Oh well. Lots of room for lots of brains (I hope!).

Blake is such a good baby and I'm so thankful for that. Especially during August. Blaine had a kidney stone towards the end of August/first of September and was not feeling well at all. I was so thankful for a sweet, mellow baby that just went with the flow during that time. Oh, what a huge blessing that is! Love my sweet baby Blake!

New Haircut!

Here is my cute little Ryan last month. So sweet with the longest lashes ever!

Here is my sweet little Ryan man this month.

Still has the longest lashes ever!!

And the cutest spikey new do! He loves it! I love it. He looks so different to me. More grown up in some ways, littler in others! Love my little Ryan man!

Blake's Blessing Day

We blessed Blake on September 18, 2011. It was a gorgeous day, sunny and crisp outside. Lots of family members came from both my family and Blaine's. As we walked to church I wondered where I was going to seat everyone for the dinner afterwards. It was feeling a little too chilly to eat outside as I had originally planned. By the time church was over, it was warmer and we were able to eat outside as planned. I know, I stress over little things. Although I have to say that I was way more laid back for this get-together than I have ever been. My friend asked if Blaine had secretly slipped something in my food to make me more relaxed and if so, could she have some too? Haha!

Here is the cute little man in his (borrowed) blessing outfit. So big and smiley. Thanks Terresa for letting us borrow the tux!

My cute littlest boys all ready for church. Ryan wouldn't be ready without a couple of trains in hand. And trains on his tie! (Side note: I don't like trains and have a irrational fear of them. My boys LOVE them!).

Family picture after church. Hannah is a good helper and loves holding Blake. She is the little mama.

Normally Hannah is surrounded by all boys-brothers and cousins. She gets so excited when girls come to play. Especially to play dress up. Here is Isabel, Hannah and Taylor in their dress up clothes. Hannah is wearing her blond Rapunzel wig. I like her better with her brown hair.

The babies like to play too. Here is Blake and Jayden just hanging out after everyone had left. Both are sooo mellow and smiley. Easy babies. I hope they stay that way.

Thanks to everyone who came and helped out. Huge thanks to my mom and Beckie who helped me TONS with the food! Love you all!
