My Favorite Sleeper

I bought this really cute sleeper when Jakob was little and all 3 of the boys wore it! I love being able to get such good use out of all the boy clothes.

Here's Jakob at 5 months.

Levi at 4 months.

And Zack at 3 months!

Either that sleeper shrunk with each kid or each boy is bigger than the next!!

Zack is 3 Months Old

Our "little" Zack is 3 months old today! Zack is growing like a weed, he's already 16 lbs and 25 inches. He's off the charts for weight and slightly above average for height!
He loves to smile, talk and laugh. Zack is really strong and holds his head up well, he can roll himself over from his tummy to his back and has even gone from his back to his tummy a few times! He is so cute and cuddly. We love our little Zack!

The Coconut

Jakob and I went grocery shopping the other day and he convinced me to buy a coconut. He has been wanting to buy a coconut for a long time, but every time I said no. This time he managed to persuade me. He said that he wanted to drink the milk with a straw and an umbrella! How could I say no to such cuteness!!Michael cracked a little hole in the side (which took a lot of effort and made a big mess).

Then the boys put their straws in and drank the coconut milk. Sorry, no umbrella!
After they drank the milk I asked them what we should do with the rest of the coconut?? Jakob suggested coconut pudding, so we got busy making pudding from scratch!
The whole event took over 3 hours!!

Jakob strained the coconut to get the milk out, he did a really good job!

The boys eating the finished product, at last.

Levi's 1st Day of School

Levi started preschool this past week! He was so excited and had a great time at school. Levi goes to preschool 2 times a week and he counts down the days until he can go to school again.

All ready to leave for his first day of preschool! He looks like such a big boy!!

Snow Babies

Zack does not like wearing hats! I thought he looked so cute in this snow hat, apparently Zack doesn't think so!!

The boys love playing in the snow!

Christmas 2009: Part Three

Our last Christmas celebration was with the extended Hermann family, on Christmas day.

Jakob and Michael played a song on their violins together.

Then Jakob played a song on his own.

On boxing day Levi played and sang a made up song on the guitar!

Christmas 2009: Part Two

Our fourth Christmas celebration was our family, just the 5 of us, on Christmas eve. I got this great book that had the Christmas story in it with a little nativity scene that we put together as we read through the book.

This year we celebrated Christmas several times! Our first Christmas was with Michael's parents at the beginning of December, our second Christmas celebration was with the extended Linke family and our third Christmas was with our immediate Hermann family!!
Here are a few pictures from Christmas with my family, at Jordan & Kristy's house:
