Christmas Eve

We went to Shaun & JaLee's for dinner on Christmas Eve. I videotaped so I don't have any pictures from their house. My whole family was there, it was nice. My brothers, sister & I got our pictures taken for our parents for Christmas. The kids all opened their presents. Its fun having kids, they were so cute. Blayke got a lot of cute stuff. We went to Grandpa & Grandma Waters house afterwards and visited with them, Lori & Kevin and Uncle Dave. They had Blayke open a couple presents. They got him a rocking horse. Its head moves, it neighs and snorts. I can't wait for him to be big enough to ride it.

He is always grabbing his feet
Jestin had to try it out, he cracks me up

Blayke has been coughing for a couple weeks. He would start to get better but would start coughing again. I took him to the Doctor on Monday and she basically said it has to run its course. She said they would test him for RSV just to be safe. So I really didn't think he had it. She called me back on Wednesday saying that the test came back positive. I took him in that afternoon and they gave him a breathing treatment. It scared us because I've heard of babies having to be hospitalized. The doctor said that he has a mild case. He isn't wheezing, having a hard time breathing and hasn't had a fever. We have to give him breathing treatments twice a day until he quits coughing. He doesn't mind the mask. He just smiles and sticks his tongue out. It was scary but I am thankful it's not worse. Its been so hard seeing him sick. I can not imagine how hard it was on my parents to see Jace go through all the surgeries and pain that he did. I know that Blayke's cough doesn't come close to what Jace went through, but it made me realize how hard and scary it was for my parents. I am so glad that Jace got his new heart and is healthy.

Christmas Tree

Maddie likes to hang out under the tree

Nicole & I wanted a Christmas tree so we got one at Star Nursery yesterday. It is little but very pretty.

Bath Time


I put Blayke in the bath last night, Colt came in and wanted to get in the bath too. They had fun splashing eachother. Colt kept making this face, he was cracking Done'e & I up.

Lil Husker

We were over at Doug & Aunt Susan's on Sunday for miss Kodi's 7th birthday party! Happy Birthday Kodi! I slacked on getting pictures this time. The Winterfelds are big fans of the Huskers so of course little Gabby has a Husker hat! Grandma put it on Blayke, he looked so cute and he liked wearing it. I wish I would have got a picture of Gabby & Colt in it. Colt loved it. He loves putting Jace & Jestin's hats on.

Last Night

Tonight- Hanging out in Colt's highchair
I love this face

We gave Blayke rice cereal for the first time last night. As you can see, it didn't go so well. He did not like it. We tried again tonight. It went a little better but he still isn't liking it. I'm going to keep trying. I put him in Colt's highchair tonight and he loved sitting in it. We videotaped him tonight so the picture is after we cleaned him up.

Here ya go Nikki! I posted lots of pictures! She has been calling me wanting to know where my Thanksgiving pictures are.


My mom was here for 5 days. Grandma and Grandpa were so nice to fly her here so she didn't have to drive. It was a really nice relaxing weekend. Most of the time when she is here we are running around trying to see everyone so its crazy. I love having her here and we miss her so much when she goes home. Thank you mom for coming to visit as much as you can.


Thanksgiving was really nice. It was my family turn this year. We switch off every year. Last Sunday we had dinner at Grandma Talbot's and on Thursday we had dinner at Grandpa Ves and Grandma Mary's house. Both dinners were so good. I love Thanksgiving.

4 Months

It's going by so fast. I can't believe he is already 4 months old. He had a Dr. appointment on Monday. He weighed 14 pounds 2 ounces and is 24 inches long. Its hard to remember him as 6 pounds 4 ounces and 17 inches. His new thing is a high pitch scream. Most of the time it is when he is happy but sometimes when he is mad. Its cute but its going to get old quick. He kept doing it in the waiting room at the doctor office. He's funny. He is giggling all the time now. He sounds like a baby doll. I just love him so much.
