Two in one!

This morning while we were getting ready for church, Mr. Will was doing some tummy time and hanging out. He decided to roll over not once, but three times! He's so advanced! In the matter of one week, he is smiling at us and rolling over! I'm trying to get a picture of him smiling, I'll post it when I can!

So, the Brewer kids have been sick...again. Jack and Molly both had influenza A and Molly had another ear infection, all last week, Jack was on four medications and Molly was on two. Luckily, Will did not get sick, but I did. I'm not quite sure I got the whole influenza A, but I got the cough, runny nose, sore throat fun! We are ALL feeling better, yea for us! I did take Will into the doctor just to make sure he wasn't sick, he did have a few sniffles and coughs. Not sick, but we did find out he weighs 10lbs. 5 oz.! It's so sad how fast he's growing, but I love that we finally have a big baby!

Thanksgiving was super fun! We had our friends, the Tillson's, over and had a great time! They are friends from our church small group and have kids the same age as our kids! We had way too much food, but they went home with plenty of leftovers, a bonus for them!

The Tillsons brought over a toddler bed they weren't using for us to give to Molly. Our big girl has been sleeping in her new toddler bed since Thursday night without a fuss! With Jack, it was a long process and he would go back and forth between the crib and his new bed. No, Molly is a big girl and sleeps in her new bed all the time! How did she grow up so fast?!!

We took our family Christmas pictures last week and it was very successful! We did them outside on the one day it was 50 degrees. The rest of the month, the temps are in the 60's and 70's, no, we choose the one day it wasn't very warm. Oh well! We got some ADORABLE pictures! I will post them later, I want to surprise everyone when they receive their Christmas card. Wouldn't want to spoil the surprise by posting the picture on here!

Will went to the zoo with us for the first time today and slept the entire time. We rode the train, which was the highlight of the trip! Eric took us to Texadelphia for lunch for some Philly cheese steaks. It was pretty good, I liked the queso the best! Will stayed awake for the experience, just taking in the sights! He's a great little baby!

Finally, Will is smiling! Yea! It's the sweetest smile and melts my heart! I can't get over how much he looks like Jack as a baby, only bigger! I love my kids!

1 month old!!!

Our little buddy turned 1 month on the 4th and he's had quite the eventful 1st month!!


*Gained 2 pounds!!! He now weighs 9 pounds and is in the 34% for boys his age! He's our big baby!! He's growing out of clothes Jack wore for months!

*Had his 1st Halloween!

We went to the pumpkin patch the weekend before Halloween to pick out our pumpkins, the one we went to had a petting zoo, haunted trail, face painting and horse rides. It was fun, I guess, but the pumpkins were way overpriced. I took the kids to HEB the next day to pick out our pumpkin and we carved it on Halloween! We went Trick-or-Treating to the outdoor mall by our house around 5:30 and got some yummy treats! Then we drove home and Eric took Jack and Molly around our neighborhood while Will and I passed treats out at our house. I was asked several times if he was a real baby. Jack was Thomas, again, and Molly was a fairy. We had a great Halloween!

*Went to Jack's soccer games! It's about the same, he's kicked the ball a few times! Yeah Jack on the team Attack!
*Met Boppi, my dad! Boppi was in town on Friday the 23rd to meet Will and hang out with us! We went to Jack's soccer practice and dinner at Fuddruckers. It was nice seeing Boppi for a few hours!
*Had his first bath in the baby bath tub! He had sponge baths until his umbilical cord fell off. He likes the water and Jack and Molly love helping give him a bath! Molly loves to sit in the bath tub when we're not using it!

*Is getting used to his car seat, he's not a huge fan. He usually screams when we put him in it and wears himself out to eventually fall asleep. When Jack and Molly were babies, they were carried around forever in their car seats, but not Mr. Will. First, his car seat is wedged between there's and almost impossible to get out. Second, it's hard holding hands with 2 wiggly kids, carry a car seat and diaper bag. So, Will pretty much lives in his Moby wrap, which I LOVE and recommend to everyone having a baby!! He loves to cuddle in it! See, you can barely see his little head, but he's in there!

Next up for all of us....
*Christmas pictures...should be fun!
*A few more soccer games
*Hopefully a smile from Will when he's not pooping or sleeping!
