Jonah's three months old

I can't believe that Jonah is already 3 months old.  Actually he is 3 months and 1.5 weeks.  He is such a good boy!!!!!!  He sleeps GREAT at night.  He has sleeps a min. of 5 hour stretches but usually much longer than that and not waking more than to eat for 11 hours or so.  I remember having to wake him to eat when he was a wee little one.  Now that he is a little older he is awake a lot more during the day with about 3 naps, a long 2 hour nap or so, and then a couple shorter ones.  He is almost always a happy.  If I set him down on his back or in his bouncer he will just kick his feet, smile and make little cooing sounds.  He still fits most of his 0-3 month clothes and is still in size1-2 diapers.  As far as his measurements I'm not sure how much he weighs but I do know that he is a lot different than the other K-B kids as far as weight.  All of the other K-B kids were a lot chubbier than Jonah. There's a poem a friend from my small group wrote about her son and it is exactly how I feel, so I asked her if I could share it here:

Until I met you.

I thought I was right. Until I met you.
I used to think I had it all figured out.
I thought I was right. Until I met you.
Once I thought my life was as full of joy as it could possibly get.
I thought I was right. Until I met you.
At one point, I thought I was stretched to my limit, with nothing more to give.
I thought I was right. Until I met you.
I used to say that I was fine with having just four children.
I thought I was right. Until I met you.
I used to think my heart held as much love as it could possibly hold.
I thought I was right. Until I met you.
I am so glad I met you, Baby Jonah. You fill Mama’s heart in ways I would have never thought.

On the way over to Wisconsin, we stopped at this gas station that had a Veteran Memorial.  It was pretty cool!  The K-B kids got to climb on the tank and go inside the turret.

Grandpa Dan's Land

Recently, we journeyed over to my dad's cabin in Wisconsin.  We always  have such a good time there.  Here are some photos that we captured while we were there:

Learn 2 Ride

Justin and I recently bought James a Learn 2 Ride bike for finally being completely potty trained. I wanted to share how cool of a concept it is.  First, it's a two wheel bike so he thinks he is just like his big siblings.  Second, the bike has no petals.  It is meant to teach balance.  Here is James riding his new bike:
