Zoey's 4 month Stats

Zoey had her 4 month check up today! Weight:14 lbs 2 oz (41%) Height: 26 in (93%) Head circ: 16in (43%) 

To celebrate how awesome she is I gave her oatmeal cereal for the first time (the Dr. said it might be better to help her poops...) She LOVED it and tried to feed herself like the whole time!

We met up with some friends for some good ol' trick or treating!  It was one of the coldest halloweens in Kansas history... and yet Jenson still was sweating haha it was the perfect costume! 

 but seriously can we talk about how cute he is!? 

He was so polite, he even kept up with all the big kids! 

Zoey stayed nice and warm in the stroller the whole night! 
When we got home we put Jenson to bed, enjoyed some candy and hung out with our little kitty! :)  another halloween for the books!

Halloween fun

First up, pumpkin painting!  We like to paint our pumpkins verse carving them.  I think it's easier, less messy, and it keeps the squirrels from eating them!  We kept with the Monsters Inc theme this year for our big pumpkins then Jenson painted his, and helped Zoey with hers too! 

Daddy was on Zoey duty while I started painting with Jenson!

Another halloween tradition is the Raytown Pumpkins on Parade!  This year we found pumpkins donated by our the LDS Church! We went early so we could miss the big storm rolling in that night!  We made it home just in time, before the storm hit! 

Trick or treating at IKEA!  What a hit and not busy or crowded at all!  We went with some friends and Jenson was in heaven and Zoey slept the whole time!  

We also went to Sar Ko Par Tails park for their "enchanted forest".  We had to cut the night short due to a HUGE blow out from our little Zoey girl! We made it on the hayride though so all was well! 

Our friend threw a awesome Halloween party and I had fun making food!  My plan for the "fingers" (hot dogs) kind of blew up (literally, they like exploded during the boiling process haha)

We also decided to potty train Jenson a week before halloween.. haha more on that later!  But we promised him a glow stick party at his friends house if he could do it!  Sure enough he did and he got his party.. we just combined it with the halloween party but Jenson was convinced everyone there was at his glow stick party.  He kept telling the other kids "welcome to my glow stick party!" haha We sure are proud of that kid!

Zoey 4 months

Zoey has the cutest laugh- you know she is tired when you can really get her laughing because almost minutes later she will be out cold! She is such a good sleeper at night but only takes long naps if your holding her. She loves sitting up, hates tummy time, and being left alone. She loves to spit up- even hours after eating but we decreased how many ounces she get and that has been seeming to help a little more. We love our little Zoey and can’t believe how fast time is flying!

 Zoey is such a feisty eater, she seriously attacks her bottle the second it goes near her mouth!  She is eating about 4 oz each bottle!  She loves to spit up so we lowered it a little and feed her more often instead of more formula and less feedings. She still spits up but is doing better!

 She loves to be swaddled and is about the only way I can get her to go to sleep.. her daddy can get her to sleep just about anywhere though!

Zoey LOVES the bath, she splashes and giggles the whole time.  It's the cutest thing ever! Jenson also HAS to take a bath with her every time!  My babies just love the water!
