Here are some more recent pics of my sweet Cally baby. He is three months old now, wow how time flies. He is already a whopping 15lbs. He loves to nurse, and most of the time can only go 2 hours before he is screaming that he is starving. He never misses a meal and his chunky thighs are proof of that. He is a super happy guy, but I wouldn't say he is mellow. He lets us know what he thinks about things. Especially his carseat. He HATES his carseat. He likes to be with me all day long and spends very little time entertaining himself, but I am enjoying it. I am taking plenty of time to just sit and talk to him and kiss his fat cheeks and remember that I only have a few moments before he isn't a baby anymore. His smile is heaven, I watch him all day just to memorize that gorgeous slobbery smile. He already tries to sit up and loves to stand. Ruby and Jeffrey have finally taken an interest now that he cries less and they often fight over who is allowed to cuddle him or touch his bouncy seat. I have found life with 3 children to be busy, but it's beautiful.

Nana and PopPop are living in Las Cruces now and we love having them closer. Jeffrey and Ruby love getting to see them more often. Last month we went down and stayed for a week and then Dave joined us and we went camping. During our week with Nana and PopPop we spent our time swimming, riding horses, and shopping. We had lots of fun. At the end of the week we went camping. We had planned on going to Cloudcroft, but after driving there it was raining too hard to stay and we came back. Luckily my Dad remembered a campsite that was on the way home and we stopped there. It was beautiful and we ended up staying a couple of nights. PopPop helped the kids catch lizards, we looked at a sky full of stars, made smores, played uno, went for a hike, and enjoyed the great outdoors together.
