Colton Yoder

This afternoon we went to visit another new baby, Colton Yoder. Colton's mommy is a good friend and sorority sister. She also has a daughter almost the same age as Alivia. They are great friends. We had a great time visiting them today. This is our third newborn in a week to visit. Alivia LOVED kissing all of them. They were all so precious!

Big sister Claire got a coloring book from Alivia!

Kisses for Colton

Makena and Jenn came to visit too!

Alivia and Makena checking out Colton!

Riley Susanna Stoffregen

This morning we went to Centerpointe to meet baby Riley. I grew up with Riley's mommy. She is like a sister to me. We were so excited to meet her. Ben was especially excited to go early and eat Centerpointe breakfast because apparently he LOVED it when I had Alivia. So...we ate breakfast first and then went to visit Riley. The breakfast WAS super yummy! Riley was just precious and Matthew came with his big brother shirt...too cute! Alivia was suprisingly gentle with her as well. YEAH! Enjoy the adorable pics of precious Riley!

Babysitting BIG BROTHER Matthew

Today we were so lucky to have Matthew with us because his mommy had his baby sister this morning. Baby Riley was born at 9:33 weiging 8lbs 8oz and 19.5 inches long. We are so excited to meet her. Matthew and Alivia played so well together and Alivia even shared pretty well!! I was very surprised about. Matthew, we love you so much. You are welcome anytime. Maybe next time you can bring your new baby sister with you so your mommy and daddy can go out??? Congrats on being a big brother! You are going to be so sweet with baby Riley. Sorry the pictures are a little out of order. Enjoy!
OK, Ben did this to Matthew's hair. He LOVES spiking little boys hair.
Matthew says, "YEAH...Alivia is awake!"

Adventure Oasis

Daddy is off work all week so we started the week off at Adventure Oasis in Independence. I had heard it was a great place for little kids. We definitely had another long day in the sun and Alivia LOVED it. I think Alivia is getting tanner than we are. lol! There was a lazy river where we spent most of our time because Alivia liked riding in the innertube with the waterfalls but I didn't get a pic of it. Alivia also had her first snowcone and thought it was yummy of course! We had a blast and can't wait to go back. Ben and I even had a blast on the big slides! Enjoy the pics. :)

Popcorn with Daddy!

Every night Ben has a bowl of popcorn and shares with both of our dogs. lol! Tonight Alivia wanted some too so she sat by Daddy watching the game and ate popcorn. Ben LOVED it because he has been waiting for the night to share popcorn with his little girl. They were too cute and Alivia LOVED the popcorn. :)

Family Day at the Pool

Today we went to our neighborhood pool from 10:00-1:00. We had a great time and it wasn't even crowded. We even had a special treat and I went and got sonic to eat lunch at the pool. Boy does Alivia LOVE sonic drinks!! We had a great time at the pool and Alivia was a fish today jumping in all by herself! We are so lucky to have a pool in our neighborhood. We LOVE it!

Fountain time!

Going under with Daddy!!

Throwing balls!

Fell asleep on the walk home...followed by a 3 hour nap..YIPEE!!

The Kidd family used to live right across the street from us but they moved a year or so ago. Today we went to visit them and their new house. They are such a sweet family and it was so good to see them. Here is a picutre of the kids. Little Elijah had just got down for a nap so we didn't get his picture. Aren't they too cute?

Cameron-3, Katey-4 and Alivia-almost 18 months

Baby Karson

On Wednesday my friend, Jenn B., had her baby boy. His name is Karson. He is such a doll. I almost forgot how to hold a little baby when I first saw him. lol. We didn't get it on camera but Alivia gave him a little kiss. It was too cute! Alivia even said cheese and posed for a picture. :)

Alivia's first time saying cheese to the camera! Don't we look alike in this pic?? First time I have ever thought that!
