~Paintball for 5 yr olds

It wasn't too cold today (10 above) so Noah put on his coat and headed outside with his "Splat" gun. The gun is basically the same idea as paintball, but geared for younger kids. He had a blast. Notice the safety glasses. I think wearing those were just as fun as shooting the gun!

~4 Months Old

I can't believe Jett is 4 months old. It's going by way too fast. Anyway, yesterday he had a well-check. He weighed in at 13 pounds and 12 ounces and measured 23 inches in length. He's a shorty!! The dr. tried to make me feel better by saying that it's no indication of how tall he'll be when he's older. I just smiled and said, "oh good." Jett's in the 10th percentile for height and 25th for weight. He's a little smaller than both the other boys were, but just as cute!

We also got a prescription for Vitamin D drops (once daily until Jett's a year old) After the dr. explained, it made sense. Because of little sunlight in the winter, a lot of the babies here in AK are lacking in Vit D so they need a supplement. I thought it was kind of interesting. If it gets really bad the baby can get a disease called Rickets (softening and weakening of the bones).

Jett also had his first taste of rice cereal. It was really cute and he was actually opening his mouth for more!

~STEAMY New Years!!

Earlier this week we went swimming at Chena Hot Springs.
It was so much fun. While it was -25 below outside, the temperature of the water was super warm! And even though you can't really see it in the pictures, it was super steamy. The outdoor adult lake was the place to be, but we spent most of our time in the indoor family pool. Even Jett liked it!
