Happy Easter

Jack's first Easter was great. He received tons of gifts, including his very own red wagon! We actually had all of the boys together for the first time...Kason 11 mos, Jack 5 mos, and Benson 2 weeks. What did we do before they came along?

Guess who is turning over??

YES, Jack turned over today...woooooo hoooooo!! Of course, I left the room, came back, and he was on his tummy...missed the whole thing. He loves the fact that he can do something new and so do we!

Back to church...

Jack actually went to church yesterday!! Our Ped told us to keep him on lock down during RSV and flu season, so he hasn't been getting out no church. Since the weather has been nice and all the viruses have calmed down, we took the plunge. He did well in church and he looked soooo handsome!! Everyone had a FIT over him...couldn't believe how big he's gotten.

Jack is 5 months old

Jack turned 5 months on the 10th and he has become a pro at this eating business!! He has done great with the cereal and most veggies...HATES green beans, LOVES sweet potatoes. He is now onto fruits and he is loving every bite, but his bottle is still his fave! He is doing great and he's becoming such a chunk. Just think...this time last year, I was just realizing I was pregnant. Time flies when you're having fun!!

Jack's 1st trip to Disney!

Jack is almost 5 months old and he has already been on his first plane ride and to Disneyworld! I had a neonatology conference in Feb., so my mom, Jeramy and Jack came along. We had wonderful, warm and sunny weather the whole time. Jack did great on the plane ride over and once we were in Disney, he loved the carousel in Magic Kingdom and the 3D shows. We will definitely have to go back when he will actually remember going!!

Benson is here!

James Benson Oates was born at 8:28 this morning. He was 8 lbs 9 oz and 21 inches long...just like Kason. I was able to attend Kristen's exciting! He came out pink and screaming with white hair...just like Jack. Kristen, Michael and Benson are doing great! What is the deal with all these boys?? A girl in the mix would be nice!
