Our sweet Stockton

Stockton is 4 1/2 months old. He has been such a blessing and joy in our lives. Everyday Darren and I get amazed at the new things he does. One day he starts to giggle and then in two more weeks he laughs at everything we do. LOVE HIM.

Here are some fun things about him. He is a very laid back baby. He doesn't cry much. When he does it's usually because he is tired or hungry. Hiccups? No problem, they don't phase him. We even have to check his diaper to see if its dirty. He doesn't care if it is! EEK!

He LOVES to be held. He wants to be held all the time. He will be totally content for hours if we just hold him. If I do need to put him down so I can get stuff done, he wont be as happy, but wont complain much. One thing he just started doing is while he is being held he will cuddle up and put his head on my shoulder. Melts my heart every time!

Stockton has the best smile. Whenever he has a big smile he scrunches his nose. Cutest thing ever! He loves to smile at anything mommy and daddy do, especially daddy. Daddy is the funniest thing to him. Daddy is basically the only one to get Stockton into full out belly laughs. It's hilarious! This is good for daddy, because Stockton is a Mommas boy.

Bath time is one of his favorite times of the day. He loves to splash his little feet. He would stay in there all day if we let him. He is one clean baby!

Stockton has just learned to sleep in his own room and crib. In fact he has gotten so good at it. We just can't forget to swaddle him or he cries til daddy comes to the rescue. If only I could get some sleep now that I have my bed back to myself again.

I could go on and on about this guy. He is the love of our lives. We couldn't of asked for a sweeter baby to come into our lives. We feel so blessed to have him and can't wait until we can give him a sibling. Hopefully soon!

California Vacation- Lake Arrowhead part 3

For the last few days of our California trip, we went up to Lake Arrowhead. We spent the rest of the time there relaxing, boating and playing games. It was a great way to end our trip. Here are some highlights of Arrowhead.

Lake Arrowhead!

He hated his life jacket!
So we took it off. Isn't he cute in his swim trunks and rash guard shirt?

California Vacation- Disnelyland part 2

Our second part of our trip we took Stockton to Disneyland. We know he is too young to remember any of it, but we will. We had so much fun sharing it with all the family and his cousins.

First stop was Club 33 for lunch in Disneyland.

Darren and I enjoying Club 33. Don't worry Stockton is asleep in his stroller.
This is my first ride of the day. This is where my side ponytail had to comedown. :)

My first time on teacups. My mom never let me go on this ride. I think its cuz she hated this ride?
Reasons why a girl would be fun! Cinderella and Jane. This was actually funny, she ran in front of the line and gave Cinderella the biggest hug. It was awesome!

Stockton did this when Jane met Cinderella! haha!

we made Stockton meet the Princesses. He hated it of course!
Haha! He really hated the Princesses!
Darren doing his share of Kid rides! We both loved going with kids and can't wait to take Stockton when he is older.
Stock slept through the loud Mickeys Playhouse Show!

After we fed him, Darren trying to amuse Stock.
Does he look amused?

Can't leave Disneyland without a treat! MMMMMmmmMMMMmmm
