Levi Austin: Four Months

Well I'm two days late on this post, but it's been a busy past few nights...Levi got shots at his appointment on Monday which made he pretty irritable that night and all he wanted was to be held, then last night I had open house and didn't get home until pretty late. So here is Levi's four month post!
Sweet Levi,
You are four months!!! Yea! So many thing are going on with you...
You love to stand on your feet while being held. This lead us to getting you a jumper...which you really enjoy!
You so want to already sit up, I think because you are always looking around and wanting to see what's going on!
You are still sleeping great! We put you down around 8:45-9:00 and you sleep till about 5:30ish.
You are currently the only baby in your class! This makes mommy very happy to know your getting all the attention you need, but it is making you a very spoiled baby!
You are eating around 6-7 oz. every 4 hours. Monday at your doctors appointment we got the go ahead to start you on rice cereal...and then we can begin baby food!
You are seriously such a happy love to laugh! You only seem to whine when you're hungry. But you really just don't did I get so lucky twice!?
You weigh 16 lbs...which puts you in the75th percentile for weight!
You are 24 inches long...which puts you above 50 percent in length!
You are in size 2 diapers and are still wearing about 6 month clothes.
The biggest thing you did this past month was start daycare.

I love watching you grow and discover new things, but each passing month you are getting further and further away from the baby stage. Mommy, daddy, and Lane you love you!

Let the Games Begin

Yesterday Lane had his very first soccer game of the season! Let me just say that the Strikers didn't do very much striking, ha!! We played the oldest team in the league (they were all 4/almost 5) and we are all 3, some newly 3! The boys did score some at the end though, even Lane, and they were all just as happy! Lane did a great job! He followed the ball and never whined or complained to come off the field! He kept saying "We beat the Matrix" and I just said "Yes you did baby!!
So here are a ton of pictures from his first game!!

He is sporting Aunt Brittany's soccer number!!!
For some reason he wanted me to take a picture of his number!

Pre-Game warm-up!! I love that their uniforms completely cover their little bodies up!!
Lane's in action here!

Pre-game pep Coach Paul...Coach daddy according to Lane!

Warm-up goal shots

Levi of course was sleeping

Getting them all set up took a bit!

The Greatest Show on Earth...Sorta

A couple of weeks ago we took the boys to the circus! This was Lane's first time to go. I was very excited about taking him, because I just knew he would love it! Well, we got there early to do all the "preshow" stuff and it turned out that Lane did not like it. It was loud, there was a ton of people on the floor and it was just too much for him. So we went to our seats to watch all the fun from above!
This was the first time we really took both boys to something like this, and we definitely had our hands full! Between holding sno cones, corn dogs, Levi, a bottle, and M&Ms's I didn't really have a chance to take alot of pics!.
Once the show started Lane got interested. He loved the first couple of main acts...the elephants, the tigers, and the motorcycles. However, some of the acts lost his interest...the tightrope, clowns, the "freak show" acts...and right before intermisson he said "Let's get out of here"!! His exact words! So we decided to leave at intermission..but we only paid $8 a ticket, so I didn't feel bad!

It was a fun evening. If you ask Lane, he'll say he loved it...but he definitely enjoyed Toy Story 3 on Ice much better! I on the other hand, couldn't stop thinking back to Water for Elephants while there, ha!

What's all the fuss?

If you live anywhere in the DFW Metroplex, then you have seen and heard first hand all the hype about In-Out Burgers coming to Texas! It's been crazy seeing people standing in massive lines in anticipation for these to open! 
But I did fall victim to all the hype and have been wanting to go and try this place..however, the nearest one to us at the time was in Allen and  I couldn't convince Paul to make the drive for a burger...he's not one for all the hype! BUT, last Thursday the one in Ft. Worth opened and since it was alot closer, convincing Paul was much easier! So Sunday we met some family there to try it out!
It was packed and the drive through line was a mile long!! I've never seen anything like this for just a burger! But they were extremely fast and we didn't wait long at all. Overall I thought the burgers were decent...Were they the greatest? NO ....Would I eat there again? Yes. I actually liked the fries the best!

It was a fun little experience and I can now say I've eaten there...for whatever that's worth!

First Day

Sadly our summer came to an end today. I have loved spending time with the boys this summer, but knew this day would come! So here we are, the first day of school for both my boys! Surprisingly, it wasn't as hard as I thought it would be. In part because we have done this with Lane and he has done great and because I know Levi is in wonderful hands...the same teachers Lane had when he was an infant!
Our morning was good...both boys were easy to get ready! I have been worrying about Lane and how he would do, but I can report that NO tears were shed!!! He is in the Preschool 3 class and I know he will love it! Levi's teacher's said his day was good as well...ate good, napped good, and is such a happy baby...all things you love to hear as a momma picking up your kids after a day away!
So, day one of the year is in the books! And no such occasion would be complete without some pics!!
Here is my sweet baby...all smiles this morning!

And a brother shot!

Happy boy

My big boy!! So darn cute!

He is loving his new backpack!

And just for fun, and mainly because I thought it was too sweet, I dressed Levi in the exact same outfit that Lane wore on his very first day of daycare!! Here is a side-by-side picture of my boys on their first days!
Let's hope the rest of the year goes just as well...okay most of them anyway!

Meeting Claire

This weekend the Furr fam made a quick trip down to Houston to meet our new niece, Claire! She arrived early and is seriously the tiniest baby I've ever held!! She has a head full of jet black hair, and is just as cute as can be! We spent Saturday just hanging out. The two big boys played non-stop all day. That evening they swam and we cooked out. It was a great time. I'm so glad we got down to visit, before our crazy Fall starts! Here are alot of pics from our weekend!
