Olivia's preschool graduation

Wow! Olivia is finished with preschool!! Five classes graduated Thursday and put on a cute program. After announcing all the graduates individually and giving out the diplomas, the kids sang about five songs and did a super cute job! After that we had cookies in Olivia's classroom and went out to Chick-fil-a as a special treat!

Miss Amy and Miss Lori did a fabulous job this year! Olivia loved them both and learned so much!

The only time Leo was happy the whole morning!

They are rarely this cute!

Jason is four months!!

Jason turned four months on Wednesday! He also had his four-month well visit that day. He weighs 16 lbs. 10 oz., is 25 inches long, and is in great health! He is rolling over from belly to back, babbling a lot, blowing raspberries, and generally just being a great baby! 

The next day, we tried a little solid food! Just some oatmeal with breast milk, but Jason wasn't into it! We'll try again next week.

We had four month pictures taken, but I wasn't pleased with them. Here are my two favorites!

Mutti and Jeffery's visit

Mutti  and Jeffery came to visit last weekend, and we had a great time hanging out with them! Mutti brought lots of presents for Olivia's birthday, and even water guns for the kids to play with! Olivia's favorite present was the unicorn helmet! We are already looking forward to the next visit!

Olivia is five!

I can hardly believe my girl is five! Look how much this sweet pea has grown!

On Wednesday I took Olivia to get her nails done! She was a little under the weather, as we are all fighting head colds.

On Thursday morning, her birthday, this was the scene at our house! Nicholas took the day off to put her make-up table together that he built and have a special lunch out!

Red Robin. Yummmm!

At home with the box cake and crown from her school party!

Keeping on

The kids keep growing up and we keep keeping on! I had my hair all cut off last Wednesday since I just can't deal with everything and fixing long, hot hair! I love it, and the kids weren't phased. Jason hung in there while I had it done!

We hit Pullen Park for the first time that afternoon and Olivia made it up the climbing thing to the first seat for the first time--she was thrilled!

Leo and Olivia found a cool Magnolia with lots of exposed roots, and played there for forty five minutes! Leo loved all the "rooms!"

Jason is growing up and is getting even more fun! He is playing with toys and "talking" more.

Friday the kids were off school, so we went to Marbles with our friends. They played so nicely together! Jason slept and played in the Bjorne. He is getting less able to sleep on me because he is getting more aware, so I am going to have to step up my game!

Saturday we had some family time and played outside a lot! We also watched the Derby together, a throwback to my childhood!

Sunday we went to the Durham Museum of Life + Science and had a blast with my Clemson friends Lisa and Jay and his family!

Monday and Tuesday we played more at Ritter park and outside on the street! Jason is starting to sit up!

And Jason got his first tooth Sunday--at three months! A new record for Kraft kids!
