4 months

Sorry haven't posted anything in a while, since summer started in June we have been super busy! We left for Alaska in the end of June and spent 10 days there exploring. We all had a ton of fun and made some special memories!

From there we flew to Minnesota to spend some time with our family. Getting ready for the Nicks 5k walk/run on July 20th. We also went up north to my parents camper for the weekend and had some fun swimming.

Hubby flew back with us from AK and the next day we went and looked at some houses, we looked at 4 and the last one we loved! It is the one we have been looking for for a long time! . We put an offer on it and after a long process of back and forths and inspections we a do excited to close on the house next week on August 20th!! I just went to National Night Out last night with the boys and my mom and it was so awesome to be able to meet the neighbors, they were all so welcoming and excited for us to move in! There are a ton of young families like ourselves with young children so Boo boo and bubba will have lots of friends close by!

Bubba has been busy growing and growing. He is becoming increasingly more aware and outgoing. He is very easy going and happy just as long as mom is close and he is fed. Recently has been going thru a thing where he screams in the car but I think it's just he doesn't like not being able to see mom. He really liked standing in the walker or jumper. Also loves laying on the floor watching his big bro play cars.

Boo boo had a really hard time adjusting to the time change and lightness from ak to mn. Then he got croup so it has taken a while to get back on track. He also has been very testy, rechecking all his boundaries and he has spent a good amount of time in time out. But it seems a lot of his friend his age are acting similar so I'm not too concerned.

Both of the boys are enjoying spending so much time with both sides of family, and we are grateful for there help!!

I will update after bubba 4 month appt with his stats and some more pictures .
