Wow, I can hardly believe it has already been 1 week since welcoming our 3rd son, Jackson Drake. This sweet, sweet baby could not have made our family more complete. Weighing 9lbs 13oz and 21 inches long, Jackson arrived September 20th 2012 at 5:12pm. Labor was a breeze, pushing took an hour, this little man was not so little and entered face up which makes it a bit harder on mommy. Once he got here all was well....he is so beautiful and looks so different then the other kids as he is my only little one with lots of hair and black hair at that! When he sleeps on me he looks alot like Ryder but also a little like Mason did, especially when he is wearing some of Mason's old sleepers. Carissa can't remember his name for the life of her and calls him something different daily, Mason really loves him and makes a real effort to pay special attention to him and Ryder is still trying to figure out what this new thing is and has swatted him a few times while checking him out. He seems to be genuinely excited about him though. Sleep is not happening but Jack is a great eater so we will take it for now. 4 kids is way harder than it looks especially with Ryder being so little still...I change diapers and feed bottles all day and still have to break away to drop/pick up the older 2 kids. Hope it calms down eventually...time will fly as fall is approaching and we are always on the go.....love that we have another precious boy to enjoy life with!! Here are some hospital pictures of our new little guy!

Mason has just started a soccer team over here in Fort Mill. It is a 5-7 year old league that practices twice a week with games each Saturday. He seems to be pretty good at it and definately wears off a little energy running around. He is excited to make some new friends and play. He has a kickoff Jamboree next weekend with his first game starting the end of September:) Here are a few pictures from his first practice.

This morning Carissa had such a fun time enjoying the beautiful weather and celebrating her friend, Adi turn 4 years old. Adi's mommy hosted a super fun art part with lots of different art stations including: bead making, canvas painting, rock painting, easel painting and spray art. Carissa loved it all, especially the adorable rice krispie paint brushes and rainbow fruit kabobs. Even the desert and food table was themed in artistic rainbow colors. Adi's Daddy did a great job face painting too:) Thanks for a great morning and inviting us to celebrate sweet, sweet Adi!!!!

So we are just about a week out from baby #4 arriving so we have been trying to do some special things with the kids before it gets too crazy. This afternoon we met up with our friends,Chemeeka and Gianna for Tea at Savannah's Tea Room in Fort Mill. The girls had such fun dressing in fancy hats and sipping tea from their very own teapots. They also got mini-sandwiches, fruit and dessert to accompany their tea. Such a fun idea and hoping we can make High Tea again one afternoon. Mason also had fun at Carowinds with Daddy riding all the rides we never can because Cari is still not tall enough, like sonme of the coasters and roaring rapids. He even got a giant Icee and won some games with dad. Later that night we headed out for his first soccer practice of the season here in Fort Mill.
