I'll have to get back to you

I'm tired, cranky and this picture of Landree at her program tonight pretty much sums my day up

If I happen to find any extra energy, I'll let you know all the details. At least I have blackmail material when she's older

Mother's Day

I never know what to expect on Mother's Day. Life has certainly changed since I became a Mom. There is some irony to the fact that you spend less time with your own mom because you start getting honored yourself for Mother's Day about the time that you realize how much your own mom loves you and how much you really should thank her. Before then you know your mom loves you and you think you know how much she has done for you. Of course as every mom knows- you have no clue until you have your own baby. Reminds me of Peyton's recital song this year- "No one loves you better than your M-O-double M- Y. That may tick a few dads off but you moms know it's true.

My first Mother's Day was the day my sweet baby girl Peyton was christened and welcomed into God's Family along with Jayce Carter and I became his Godmother- Loved that. There are certain parts of mother's days since that I remember and cherish. I have this sweet video from two years ago

Last year, I was still dealing with the disbelief that god was unexpectedly blessing us with a sweet baby. I had found out the week before and we had planned to keep it to ourselves for awhile. Then my morning sickness kicked in and Peyton thought I had swine flu so we decided to come clean. We called and told our Moms that we were expecting because is there really any day better than Mother's Day for that kind of news? While we all knew that we would have a sweet baby, I don't think we were expecting this sweet boy

Don't you just want to pick him up and snuggle him and yes he is as sweet and cuddly as he looks.

This morning I got waffles and bacon for breakfast, a homemade card and book from each girl- they know their mama, and they gave me Jewelry and a gift card to Sephora- SCORE!! We actually got up and got to 8 o'clock church. Got home where my sweet husband proceeded to fix all the meals and clean the kitchen and glory be I haven't changed one diaper today- yeah!!! Here are the three reasons I have been doted on by sweet husband today. Don't they look innocent like they never harass their mom.

And because I told my husband I would- here is a picture of me and my sweet babies. I put makeup on this morning but you would have no clue by this picture.

And this one has nothing to do with mother's day but I think Brian is trying to indoctrinate him early. He is becoming such a wiggle worm. He started off on that mat behind him and scooted and rolled himself all over the floor. It's been a great day. Sigh... back to reality tomorrow with Brian going out of town. Hopefully the kids and I will survive.

Don't faint

I know- two days in a row here. I have a Landree funny and pictures.

Girl talk coming ahead so warning to the few guys that might actually read this blog.

So I was sitting in my chair pumping when Landree came to visit. She has asked on more than one occasion if she can squeeze my boobies to help get the milk out so I never know what to expect.
Today she informed me, "You know if you keep pumping, your boobies are going to get small like ours."
Me: No Landree I didn't know that
Landree: My boobies are growing. When I drink water and milk it goes into my boobies to make them bigger.
Me: Landree how do you know that?
Landree: Just do. Pizza helps make my boobies bigger too. When I chew and chew they get bigger
Me: Nice to know Landree
Landree: Can I have a banana?
And I left it at that

This afternoon, Brock somehow managed to roll and squirm his way off his mat and into the middle of the floor. I was sitting here watching and still don't know how he did it.

Aren't these two cute- she would have a fit if she knew he had spit up on himself.

I then tried to get a picture of all three of them and thought I had done a pretty good job.

Then Daddy came home and stood behind me and you can tell Brock was thrilled to see him.

Be Careful

When you have two older sisters, you should be careful where you fall asleep.

Brock fell asleep yesterday afternoon while playing on his playmat. He originally was in the middle on his back but scooted around and flipped. Landree and Peyton decided he was sleepy and gave him his pacifier. Peyton then sang to him while Landree patted his back until he fell asleep (not spoiled much at all is he?). Landree then decided he was cold and put her pink Bitty Baby blanket on him and no one could convince her that one of his own would work just as well. So of course like any good mom, I took a picture so the girls could torture him with it when he is grown. Or he will use it as evidence about how we allowed him to be mistreated by his sisters and why we need to pay for his therapy.
