The precious moments of Life!

We are fast approaching one full year with Bentley. This little sweetheart has only added to the love, laughs and cuddles in our home.Before I had a little girl I dreamed of what life would be like with a little girl but they were no where close to an amazing way. My baby girl is funnier, sweeter and more precious then I could have imagined. She is growing and learning so fast that I find it a little bitter-sweet that I really no longer have a little baby girl. I wish that she could just stay tiny and sweet forever. Good thing another little one is on the way:o) Here are a few of her funnier moments lately:
This is how her hair usually looks when she first wakes up. I can't complain because I'm just glad she has a full thick head of hair. We will probably keep the hair detangler company in business single-handedly here in a short while! She may look like her Daddy but there is no escaping the Jones' tongue. When she is in deep concentration her little tongue sneaks out. Way cute and funny!
Having 2 older brothers I was worried I would have a little tom-boy but she is ALL girl. She has started picking up stuffed animals and giving them loves and kisses. Not the best picture...I caught her in mid-blink.
I have to admit that this specific moment made me cry. Almost one year ago Bentley fit INSIDE this little hat and now it fits her head:o(
Jarron says that I have early nesting syndrome... he might be right. I put up all our Christmas decorations inside last week and this weekend we put up the lights and decorations outside.

Busy, Busy, Sick, Sick, Sick!

My first trimester hasn't been an easy one and I even caught a horrible stomach flu that kept me in bed for 4 days! There has been one thing after another so here is a quick overview of the Langston's the last couple of weeks.

The kids at Boo At The Zoo. I was in bed with the stomach flu this weekend. The boys wanted to be ghosts so my mom through some costumes together the night before.
Cayton actually enjoyed the slimy mess of pumpkin carving this year.
Ayden didn't.
And Bentley just wasn't quite sure of anything.
Cayton was into ghosts as you probably can tell. (Thanks papa for carving!)
Ayden just had a rough night:)
Actual Halloween night. Angels, monkeys, thomas and scooby oh my! Jarron was an angel at work and the girls he works with were devils. As you can see the boys are not ghosts but it is a long we won't go there.
Avery and Bentley. Avery was a strawberry.
Halloween was a success!!
Thursday night we headed North for the annual thanksgiving/birthday/hunting celebration with grandma in the mountains and stayed till Monday. We were hoping for some snow but just got rain. We all had a great time and loved seeing all our family again.
Bentley's 11 month cupcake day celebrated at Great Grandma's in the mountains.
All Cayton wanted to do for his 5th birthday was celebrate it and open presents at Grandma's in the mountains and go to Planet Kid with Daddy and Ayden and eat pizza so that is what we did!
Daddy had Tuesday off because of Veteran's Day so we spent the afternoon at Planet kid
I had never given her the chance but we found out that Bentley can use a straw!

And last but not least this was my first attempt at 2 ponytails. She even sat there and just let me do it while she smiled at herself in the mirror!

I also had a birthday somewhere in all the mix of things and had a wonderful dinner date with Jarron. It was very relaxing and just what I needed!
