A Disney Thanksgiving!

The whole Morgan clan packed up and headed down to Disneyland for this Thanksgiving. A few years in the making and a couple of location changes later we finally made it! I think everyone else thought our plans sounded fun and decided to join us as well... it was so crowded! Despite the crowds it was such an enjoyable vacation. I was so nervous taking a 4 month old to Disneyland but Madden did amazing.  Thank you so much Connie and George for a memorable Thanksgiving!

I was so nervous about the drive down and feeding my baby! Madden refused bottles up until the car ride down. It was amazing! Thank goodness for the pump.
We bought Mickey Mouse Clubhouse for the Ipod. Great source of entertainment for a 10 hour car ride!

In line for Maddens first ride at Disneyland. Pirates of the Caribbean....
Lets just say he hated it!

Waiting for the World of Color to begin.
The Grandmas volunteered to take Madden and Nixon that night so we could enjoy the show without worrying about the babies! It was kind of nice as you can see by our faces!
He kept pulling the hat down over his eyes.
Poor kid spent so much time in his car seat. One morning we went to put him in it and he wouldn't sit down!

Maddens First Thanksgiving.

I love this picture. Madden has beautiful eyes.
All the cousins

After four days all three of us were spent!

Time flies when your having fun!

  Can you believe this handsome little guy is going to be 4 months old on Saturday. I can't believe how fast he is growing up! It seems like it was yesterday that I was in the delivery room holding him for the first time. He honestly brings so much joy into our lives. He is the funniest little guy. He is either super happy or a screamin demon! He has to be standing up at all times. We love him more and more each day.
His 4 month stats are..
Weight: 13.4 oz. (25%)
Height: 24 1/2 inches (50%)

 Helping mommy exercise.
Dad and Madden
First experience with Rice cereal. Lets just say we will try again next month!
The story of the bumbo....

Not so sure about it.
Not loving it.
Not sure about it again.
Hating it!
Madden doesn't love his bumbo. I try to make him like it but nope... he wont have any of it. He will sit in it for maybe a minute until he starts screaming. I was most excited for him to be big enough to sit in the bumbo. I have heard from so many people how amazing they are. How much there kids love them. Nope, not mine. Madden just likes to be standing ALL THE TIME! Maybe next month!

Happy Halloween

Halloween was really fun this year. It was Maddens first go and I think he just thought we were all sorts of crazy. His costume fit him perfectly this year. He loves his little monkey so we figured what better than being a monkey himself! He looked so stinking cute. My favorite part of his costume was the little tail! He didn't love being in costume so Auntie Kylee supplied him with a skeleton onsie he wore the majority of the time. We started the day off with the annual party at Grandma Connie's. We ate, played games, carved pumpkins, and had lots and lots of fun. After Madden experience his first time trick or treating. He didn't quite enjoy it but mom and dad sure are enjoying his treats!  He just slept the whole time. Lucky us!

A couple days ago I decided to do some tummy time with Madden. Well he decided he didn't like it and rolled right over. I was laughing so hard. I'd roll him on his stomach and he would roll right back over. We did this for about 15 minutes. Karson comes home and we try to show him and nothing. He just laid on his stomach gibbering away. I am just glad I have it recorded or no one would believe me. He finally remembered and has been showing off now. It is crazy how big he is getting. He is growing up way too fast!!
