Random January Pics of my Kids

So this picture was taken at the very beginning of January when my baby girl was still so tiny. She started out at 5 lbs 9 oz (2%) and 18 inches as of two days ago Jan. 26th she is now 8 lbs 4 oz (20%) and 21 1/2 inches (50%). What gets me about this picture is her onesie. It was one of the smallest ones we had and fit her the best. Now this onesie fits her a little on the tight side. Man, she is growing so fast!!a

This is Hank our snowman, named by Carter.


One night Carter fell asleep in the car and this is how he slept for at least the first half of the night.
Carter was set on eating his lunch like this one afternoon. He was not successful.

This pic is still from the beginning of January. This is Hayden with her buddy who was born only 8 days before Hayden. He looks like he could eat her. He is such an adorable kid and has been gaining weight like crazy too. He is now 6 weeks and over 13 lbs.

We had the joy of having Grandma Bonnie come for 10 days at the beg. of Jan. She is such a great buddy to Carter. She made this awesome track and they played for hours with it.

It is such a trip for me to look back at these pictures even though it has only been a few weeks and see how she has grown and changed already. Here Hayden is in a premie outfit I got from my sister. There is no way she could fit in that now.
Carter is OBSESSED with his blankies. He has his blue blankie (the blue and white checked one), his white blankie and his train blankie. They go just about everywhere with him.

I thought she looked so funny in a cute way in this hat.

I love those cheeks of his.

Grandma Bon in grandkid heaven.

Her hair is darker and thicker in this picture than it is now. She looks so darling in this little outfit. Plus, you can already see her filling out more from the pictures above.


Precious, just precious!!


She LITERALLY has her daddy wrapped around her little fingers.

What?!? Mr. "I-was-meant-to-have-all-boys" is wrapped our his daughter's fingers?? I just can't believe it! Ha ha...yes I can. I knew it would happen. It's this amazing magic that baby girls are blessed with. (my penny-pinching hubby wanted desperately to buy Sydney a $200 blessing dress that he fell in love with. Luckily, her magic didn't affect my logic and we decided against the dress). And this magic only grows stronger as the baby girls grows up. That picture of her and Matt is precious.

She is just a beauty. And I'm so glad that she is growing so well. Thanks for posting pictures. We're excited to meet this new niece of ours. Syd is dying! She wants to fly and see Baby Hayden right now.

I totally know what you mean about how fast they grow from being so tiny. I always thought about that with Asher because he was preemie! She is so cute!

Cute pictures, Amber!

So cute!! I am so glad you shared! So, how is it having two?? Not as bad as you thought but some how worse?? Yah, that is how I felt, too. Hope all is well!

So glad to see new pictures! I love them all. It's amazing how much little babies can change in just a short time. I love seeing her. She's still pretty stinkin' tiny! And how fun to have grandma come visit. Isn't it the best?! I love Carter sleeping in his clothes and I can say that I knew, without a shadow of a doubt, that Matt would be wrapped around a little girl in NO time at all. I saw the little girls in the ward swoon over him and I just knew it wouldn't take much to get Mr. Sensitive wrapped around her finger! :) Miss you guys so much! (oh, and we got Hayden's beautiful baby announcement the other day, I have been meaning to tell you. I loved it. And yes, we HAVE to make something work this next year for us to get together!!!)
