"Dadda"

So to break up my post on each of the kids here is a little video of our cute Jossy girl crawling around saying her favorite word! As you can hear in the background we're all sick around here!

Miss Jossy Jo

Jocelyn LOVES her daddy! She is such a daddy's girl! As Jon would say, 1 out of 4 isn't bad!
She has his adorable blue eyes too
As soon as he walks in the door at night she's crawling over to his feet and up his leg
Jossy loves her food, she is such a good eater
She is a pro at crawling all over and getting into her brothers toys
Jocelyn is getting so good at pulling herself up to anything and everything
She naps like a champ and always in her crib
Says "daddy, dada" like its her job
Jocelyn has 3 teeth on the top and 3 teeth on the bottom, 6 ahead of her sister!
Sometimes boycotts nursing
Has long hair and it hangs in her eyes so we try and keep it pulled back in a clip/headband
Constantly pulls her sister's pacifier out of her mouth just to chew on it and pester her
Is the most laid back of the 4 kids and we sure appreciate that!

All about Miss Jewels!

Julianne is such a mama's girl! As soon as I walk into the room she's at my feet climbing up my leg.  
She is such a snuggler, must be a "Baby A" thing
Julianne LOVES her baby and still holds/carries her at all times
She is down to nursing just 3 times during the day and once during the night
Jewels is getting really good at pulling herself up to ANYTHING and trying to cruse along it
She loves to explore the house and get into any nook and cranny
When she gets excited her feet curl really fast over and over again
REFUSES to eat her green vegetables out of a jar, but will eat whole peas when she can feed herself
Her first word was a week ago and she followed suit with her brothers and said "daddy" "dada"
Julianne has the biggest smile and it always puts a smile on my face no matter the time!
She has the cutest little dimples, not sure who she gets those from but they sure are cute! 
Jewels loves to eat whatever we're eating, she really isn't picky at all! 
No longer has to be swaddled to sleep at night (for about 2 months now) 
Refuses to nap in her crib...we're trying to work on this! 
Loves to follow her brothers around and check up on them!

Happy Valentine's Day

All of us hear at the Waters household wish you all a wonderful Valentine's Day! Here are some cute pictures of the kids in their Valentine's Day gear that I took this weekend in a 5 minute little photo shoot we did (I didn't get one of all 4 together yet, Jewels thought 5 minutes was long enough to take pictures). Jon and I aren't doing anything special with just us tonight but we are heading to my Grandma's for a little dinner she is having, when a 98 year old calls and says she's having dinner, you go! So we're all heading up to Maxwell tonight. The boys have been busy, busy, busy making/coloring pictures to share with everyone to pass out to family they are pretty excited!

Family Fun Night

Last Friday night was my mom's birthday and to celebrate we asked them to go to the Family Fun Night at the boys' preschool! We all had a blast, the boys LOVED playing all the "carnival" type games.

 {The girls were so good and just hung out and checked everyone out}

 {Jackson LOVED getting his face painted}
 {Of course he got a train on his cheek!} 
 {Joel getting his face done}
 {And the finished train}
{Playing the duck game} 
 {They enjoyed the cake and the book walk and being able to pick out a new book} 
 {playing the bean bag toss game}
 {shootin' some hoops}
We had a fun night and the boys went through 50 tickets so 25 games a piece! There was a silent auction and mom and dad won a couple baskets.  After the fun at the church we headed back to our place for homemade ice cream and Texas Sheetcake Brownies that I made earlier that day! It was a fun night!

Mr. Snowman

When the boys woke up on Saturday and saw it snowing all they kept saying was they wanted to go outside and build a snowman.  Jon took them out and that's exactly what they did!

 They made some snow angels too! 


 Sophie was chasing the snowflakes from the sliding glass door and kept crying because she wanted to go out...so I let her out and she enjoyed getting covered in snow! 
 And here he is....Mr. Snowman, rocks for eyes and a mouth, a baby carrot for a nose and shovels for arms!

Weekend Recap

On Saturday we stayed home mostly all day.  I had a morning maternity photo session and then my Blackberry stopped working last Wednesday so my new one arrived Saturday so Jon took it to US Cellular to activate.  Then all the boys headed out to play in the 6-8 inches of snow we got that day! They had sooo much fun and had the rosiest little cheeks when they came in.  I was busy making some new snacks to take over to The Cathcart's later that afternoon.  That's one of the good things about having friends in next door, when the roads are bad you don't have to travel!  The only stipulation for the party was we had to bring new recipes and they had to be from Pinterest.  We each made at least 3 new recipes a piece and everything was  WONDERFUL! This is the picture of the "crack bread" that I made.  After the kids all went to bed at 8 the adults had a few hours to catch up and hang out it was soooo nice to spend an evening out of the house!! 

On Sunday we all slept in a little, we had a rough night with the girls, never fails when Jon and I stay up late the girls are up way more than usual during the night and Miss Jossy was up from 5-6 just screaming! Finally the girls woke up at 9 and we all had breakfast and then ran to the grocery store and came home and all the kids took naps and we caught up on the cleaning and laundry I made a few things for us to eat during the Super Bowl.  It was such a nice relaxing weekend! We've got a busy week ahead of us with something going on almost every night!
