4 Months Old!

Meredith loves this bumbo my friend
lent to us. She loves to be up and looking

Four months? Really? Can't believe she is four months old already! Meredith is growing so fast! I took her into the doctor yesterday and she weighed in at 16 lbs 8 oz and 26.5 inches tall! Dang, she keeps going and she may beat Nathaniel in height :)
Seth and I messing around with her hat :) I love the look on her face here!

Meredith is a non-stop smiler! Everywhere we go people are drawn to her little smile, we get comments on it all the time. She is extremely happy and so laid back. We have finally figured out a nap routine which involves actual naps in her crib so thrilled about that. I was very nervous about starting school back up with Elizabeth because Meredith wasn't taking any real naps during the day. But she has finally settled into a bit of a routine and it helps a lot! We all just love having her here with us!

Tree 2 Tree

My Dad bought Rob a gift certificate to Tree to Tree this year. It's a fun little place out by Hagg Lake that consists of an obstacle course up in the trees. We decided to go on Sept 2nd before school started. Rob LOVED it!! Zip lines, rock walls you have to climb up and across while 20 ft or so up in the air, crossing over on nothing more than a cable and not much else to hold onto at some points. What isn't there to love? Haha! No thanks, I'll keep my feet firmly planted on the ground :) But Rob loved it and that's all that mattered. He took Jonathan and Nathaniel up with him. Shane was able to join the fun up in the trees while my dad and I sat it out below with the younger kids and took pictures. I was pretty impressed all four were able to complete all four levels, each getting progressively harder and higher off the ground.
I gave Elizabeth a camera and let her follow the guys around since I had to run back and forth between them and Meredith. She did pretty good :) Because the two of us took a ton of photos I just put them all into an album. Sorry lots of pics of behinds but we couldn't seem to ever get in a better position to get the other side of them :)
