Chris was scrolling through the pictures on Colton’s Kindle and found this… needless to say we were in tears with laughter!

Claire is definitely the more adventurous of our children… She was showing off at the park recently.
Chris and I were standing out to the side talking while Colton and Claire played… We looked up and saw her sliding on her belly!
Here I go!!
Love this wild girl!
I think it is time to give this hat to her cousin Keylee and get her one that fits!

I really cannot figure this chick out… She is such a firecracker. For some reason she loves to put stuff on her face! Whether it’s lotion, Vaseline, Desitin, or even stickers.
Muah! Love her so much!

14 pounds & 12 ounces
25 1/2 inches long and still in the 90th percentile!
You are wearing 6-9 months clothing.
Feeding & Sleeping:
During the day you are doing awesome. We are currently transitioning to a 3.5 hr schedule. Since the time change we are having issues with nighttime, but I am hoping that will adjust soon!
We have been a lot more tummy time and on March 5th you rolled over for the first time! We were all in Colton’s room after bath time … I had turned around and Colton said, “mom Beckham rolled over”. I was totally shocked and a little disappointed that I missed it. Colton was super excited that he got to see it.
I did not realize how much I missed seeing my husband snuggled up with a baby. Seeing him take care of and love on Baby B is just different than seeing him with the toddlers. There is something over the top sweet about it… makes me fall in love with him over and over. I love these boys… I love all my boys.

Colton is such a big helper around the house. He is really great about helping to put away his laundry and he helps pick up the playroom. His favorite though always involves a spray bottle!
So I gave him the windex and something to clean the windows with and he got busy!
Those extra set of hands are going to be great as he gets bigger!!

What happens when you give your 4 year old your phone?
He takes a gazillion pictures of himself!
I love that silly boy and all of his silly faces!!

Dinnertime can sometimes be the most enjoyable time of our day. Sitting around the table as a family is important to both Chris and I – even if we are having take-out. It is a good time to sit together as a family and talk about our day. We all take turns sharing what went on that day. Chris will share a little about his work day and then we make our way around the table and ultimately end up trying to pull stuff out of Colton about what went on at school.
Colton likes to tell us about reading circle (his favorite part of the day) and will talk about playtime. I try to get him to share about his bible story for the day, but I normally do not get much of a response. Last Thursday while eating dinner Colton was telling us about what had went on earlier that day at school. They had a little Easter party and during playtime they watched a movie about Easter. We of course took this time to talk about Easter and Jesus dying on the cross only to raise from the grave three days later. In the midst of our conversation Colton interrupts and says, “He took the punishment for our sin”. Chris and I could barely finish our bites of food. Chris got that deep down gut happy belly laugh. You know, the one where you do not know whether to cry or laugh with joy. Of course I welled up with tears. Chris confirmed to Colton that what he said was true. I finished the rest of dinner with such a thankful heart that my little man is learning about our Lord. Hearing my little four year old come out with “He took the punishment for our sin” was almost more than I could stand.
Good Friday is a day of remembrance of the crucifixion of Christ – the entire day I thought about what Colton said. So thankful that my little toddler helped remind me that Jesus did not just die on the cross, but he was crucified for my sin… He took the punishment for my sin. Glory to His name!
