This guy. I sure love him. He has worked so, so hard in the past 7 years to give me everything we want and need. It is all about to pay off! We accepted a job in Sioux City, Iowa with a wonderful dental practice. We will be moving at the end of June, and although I am so sad to leave my friends here in Lincoln, I am really, really excited for a real job and a real house! We feel like Sioux City is just a perfect fit for us. Cody will be able to do the exact work that he wants to do, it is a great size city with all the shopping and food that we desire. We are so so so so excited to start this new journey with our sweet, crazy, boys!

3 months

Meyers is 3 months!!! The angel baby continues to bless my life daily. I just want to cuddle him, it is so different having one baby! So different and so wonderful!

The last few months...Little Things {Nov, Dec, Jan}

Scroll down, far! There is another post about Meyers' birth below!

The last few months have been great...having 3 boys to feed, and change (like 15 diapers a day. Holy. Moly.), and entertain has sure kept us busy!

Honestly besides keeping everyone healthy (aka we have been sick for 3 months), I haven't done much! I helped three little boys to learn and grow every day, I guess that is actually a ton to do! Here are a ton of pictures to keep ya in the loop with our growing family.

Meyers as a brand new baby!

 This is about how well the sibling photoshoot went when Meyers was first born...ha. There are a few good ones on my photography blog... www.winterhollerphotography.blogspot.com
 Love the still new baby wrinkles:)
 He has Winterholler legs!
 The boys were able to pick out their Christmas ornaments this year. It was soooo fun! Barrett chose a bulldozer, and Dax a fire truck. They were absolutely devastated every single day as they saw their "toys" hanging on the tree, out of their reach!
 Meyers' first day of church-looking sharp with daddy.
 The first real decent picture I got of my three boys! Yay!
 Only the cutest outfit ever invented, if you ask me. Thanks Fimrite's!
 O, bathtime. It is the best. Seriously they just giggle and splash to their hearts content, or until daddy decides its getting a lithe out of hand:)!
 Dax on his new bike from Santa Claus!
 Barrett was so excited, "Bike! Bike"!
 Daddy has been working really hard lately, so Barrett decided to plop down with him and relax after work.
 Happy Meyers, as always.
 This is how I have to protect my baby from the crazies. Most tummy time/floor playing is done behind the gate!
 Handsome daddy chilling with the baby. If Cody could hold him all day, he would!

 My life with three littles on my lap. It's hard sometimes, but how lucky am I to have all these fingers and toes needing me at once:)?!!
 Dax drinking his Mac and Cheese:) He loves it almost as much as I do!
 Getting so big! He is 2 months old here, wearing clothes that the twins were wearing at 7 months!
 Dax man, loving the camera.
 Barrett, running from the camera! Always!
 That's Dax's new "awesome!" face. I love it.
 Barrett loves to do his own thing. Unless he can wrestle, then that is his activity of choice.

 Dax is my music lover. He SCREAMS in church to sing along with us. He loves any type of music, and dances like a crazy man.

Meyers' Newborn Photos

My Meyers Boy...

November 1, 2013 we welcomed our fourth baby boy into our family. He was 19 inches long and 6 lbs. 15 oz. We went to the hospital first thing in the morning, before Dax and Barrett woke up. My wonderful momma was here to stay with them while we headed out. I wanted her there so my great friend, Holly, came over and hung out with the boys so my mom could meet Meyers as soon as he entered the world:). 
I was pretty calm for the entire process. My nurses were great, and I love love love my doctor. C-sections are so quick and predictable, and I love that. I am such a planner that it is right up my alley to know exactly what to expect! We started surgery with Cody right by my side, and shortly after my baby was born! 
Cody rushed off to be with him, but he was crying on and off. This concerned them a little bit, as his breathing just wasn't perfect. They had a specialist come into the room as I was getting stitched up, and he said that it should resolve on its own very quickly. The entire time he was getting checked out I couldn't even seen my sweet boy. That was one thing I didn't like about my entire experience. But, he was fine and that was all that mattered. As we were in recovery his breathing was still a little iffy, but after I nursed him for just a few minutes it regulated and we were good to go. What a good little guy he has been from the get go. He pretty much nursed for the first 2 hours of his life, and was on a great schedule from then on! 3 hours during the day, 4 at night from day one. Really from day 1! What a champ!! I am a crazy baby wise scheduler, so I can't give all the credit to Meyers:) It has worked for all of my boys. I feel like if I can get twins to sleep 6 hours at 6 weeks and just go up from there, that baby wise is the real deal! Meyers is now sleeping 10 hours at night, and has been since he was 10 weeks old.
He has been hands down the BEST baby. He only cries if he is hungry or tired, and that last about 15 seconds until I feed him or he falls asleep. We are so so blessed to have him. Heavenly Father knew that I needed an angel baby with the twin crazies running around all day! 
The boys have actually adjusted rather well. They have been sick pretty much since he came home from the hospital, so a little grumpy just because of colds. But they have held it together great for having to now split their mommy 3 ways. I have done decent, too! I'm sure there are many breakdown days ahead, but thus far we have all survived just fine.  I am, however, soooo ready for this winter to be over. It has been in the single digits for way too long, with the windchill taking it to -10 to -20! We have been trapped inside for like 6 weeks. Ug. ANd the 6 weeks before that I was recovering from my c-section, so basically since Meyers has been born we have barely left the house. I can't wait, and that's an understatement, to go outside and PLAY!!!! Anyway, here's Meyers first few days as a Winterholler!
