Addison and John had a Father/Daughter date night on Friday night. They hit the town and had so much fun! A little dinner at Chick-fil-A, Christmas lights on the Fayetteville Square and finally a Razorback basketball game. Addison proclaimed it "the best date night ever!"

Well it may have rained all day and not snowed but it still is beginning to feel alot like Christmas around here. I suppose it's because Thanksgiving is so late this year, but it seems like everyone I talk to is jumping into Christmas head first...so we thought we'd join in too!
We made our annual trip to Walmart this morning and picked out Angels from the Angel Tree for both kids to buy for. We picked a 2 year girl and an infant boy. Addison kind of got it, she definetly knew the presents weren't for her (we made that perfectly clear!) and that we were buying the toys to give away but I don't think she really got that she was helping someone less fortunate. In time she will and it will be wonderful to explain to her that we've been doing this since she was one. Addison enjoyed walking up and down the toy aisles and picking the perfect gifts.
Then for evening entertainment we put ornaments on our small Christmas tree. We picked up this smaller tree on super clearance after Christmas last year and decided it would be the "kids" tree in the bonus room. So I'm not allowed to worry about ornament placement or colors matching the rest of the house or anything...its a fun tree for the kids to enjoy. Addison already loves turning the lights on.

Asher had his 3 month "birthday" on Tuesday, Nov. 18th. And despite being a relatively smiley baby, he wasn't having it with this photo shoot and refused to crack even the smallest smile. It may or may not have had something to do with the fact that his sister was crying and carrying on in the background because I wouldn't sit to get my haircut by her at that very second...sigh...oh well, it's all just part of the memory!?
Asher is a sweet little thing and rolls with the craziness that comes with having a 3 year old sister. He still LOVES Addison and smiles at her constantly. He always has big smiles for daddy when he comes home from work too, which daddy loves. He has rolled over from his tummy his back multiple times (I even got it on video, bonus!) He is a great sleeper and has slept through the night many times although crazy mommy has started getting him up again to squeeze in one more feeding in hopes of plumping him up a bit. He is on a pretty good schedule, waking by 7 and feeding every 2.5 to 3 hours. He gets his bath at 7:30 or 8 and then feeds once before before going to bed. I do one last feeding while he sleeps right before I go to bed at 10 or 10:30 and recently I have also been feeding him while he sleeps around 3am.
