You guessed it more boys!

I just wanted to show you more pictures of my little boys. They are so sweet and I just love them so much. They are growing so much and some days I do find it hard to keep up but they are such blessings.

Kaden trying to get Brayson. We were playing outside enjoying one of the pretty days that we have had.

Brazos drawing on the concrete with the chalk. He likes to draw and color.

Braxton working hard as always. That kids is the energizer bunny he just keeps going and going.

The boys playing in the grass at the capitol. This is as good as I could get they were just to busy playing.

These kids are just great. I know I might be a little biased but they are pretty good. Thanks for checking in on us. There will be more to come soon.

One more note - Brazos has been in big boys pants for two weeks now, he is doing really well. We have most everything but nap and night time down. Great job Brazos!!!

Brayson is rolling over and started eating rice cereal. He had his 4 month check this week and weighted in at a whopping 12 pounds and 11 ounces 8% and was 23 inches 4%. They are concerned that his breathing has slowed his growth and want to keep an eye on him so we will see. But he is a happy little boys and is hitting all his milestones so we will see how the weight gain goes.

My sweet boys

I am not sure that I can use the word sweet very often with this crew. Energetic - yes. Busy - yes. Entertaining - yes. But sweet? Today - yes. They are good kids and I need to stop and realize just how good they are. We have been working a lot harder on discipline and they have been responding well. We are finally getting into a routine and I feel like I can take them out on my own again. They are adjusting to all the craziness that our life holds and are able to go with the flo. I am thankful for them and feel so blessed to be their mother. This week Braxton and Brazos have said I love you with out being prompted. Braxton has given numerous hugs for old toys that he has found in his room to play with. So today my boys are sweet. They are precious gifts from God and I am thankful to have them. Here are some pictures from this week.

Andy and my three munchkins. We went to Tiffany's graduation on Sunday afternoon and they were all dressed alike so I could keep up with them. These are the loves of my life - all four of them.

Brazos found his snow boots and hat today - I thought I had them all put away - guess again. Notice the big boys undies. Brazos has been potty training this week. We started on Monday and got off to a rocky start but yesterday we only had one accident and today we are still at zero so we will see how the day goes. Good job Brazos.

Our weather has been beautiful this week and we have been enjoying some time outside. The boys painted for me on Tuesday. They had a great time - there was paint everywhere.

Braxton is refusing to wear shorts yet. The hat and boots are a permanent feature. This kid works from sun up to sun down - he really is a busy bee. Here he is working yesterday.

And finally - Brayson turned 4 months on Friday. It is amazing how fast time flies. His little personality is really taking shape. Those smiles are so sweet.
I still have pictures to post so more to come soon.

Sleep over!

Braxton got to have his friend Rosa over for a sleepover. It was the first time for her to stay with us. They all did really well. We had a good time. Some of my pictures turned out a little blurry but we will remember our fun time just as well. Brazos wanted to be part of the whole process so we let him. Andy and the whole McDonald clan were out of town so I got to experience the whole thing on my own. We had a great time. I think we will do it again soon. (this was over a week ago but I guess things are better late than never)

Ice Cream anyone!

I like mine cold, or on my plate, or from the bottom up.

The kids enjoyed reading some books before bed. Once again Brazos wanted to read too.

Then it was time for bed. Everyone wanted to camp out in the floor - they were all playing possum in this picture.

This is a little more accurate. See those little devilish grins. It took a little while to get to sleep but once they were there they slept all night.
Thanks for coming to play Rosa we had a good time.

Quick Update

Not really a lot going on here. We are still making it one day at a time. The boys are all well and growing fast. We have been enjoying a lot of time outside. We are finally starting to warn up we are suppose to see a day at 80 degrees here in the next week we will see if that happens or not. All is well up here. Da and Mama Z and Amy and Jorge are coming up to see us this weekend. We are ready to see them. Braxton has been getting up every morning and after each nap asking if Mama Z is here. So they will be very thankful to see them. Here are some pictures from the last week or so.

Go Aggies Go

What happens when you brain wash your children . . . they think that all sports are the AGGIES!! Nothing wrong with that. Uncle Karl is playing softball and the boys love to go and watch. Brazos stands at the fence and hollers go Aggies, go Aggies. I love it. Maybe one day we will have three more Aggies. Here are some pictures of the boys at the ball field. Their favorite part is when the game is over they get to go out on the field and run the bases. Dad told them they could take their tee and balls too, and that has also been a hit - no pun intended!!
Look out Aggies here come some ball players.

Rolling Over, Growing up, and just Stuff

Time is going quickly and it amazes me just how fast time flies.
The boys are all healthy at the moment and we would like to keep it that way for a while. Brazos had a great birthday and lots of friends came to see him. There are quite a few pictures in this post so just bear with me.
Tiffany and Brayson - Tiffany has been around for a long time and she is the boys favorite babysitter by far. Today was her graduation party so we went to wish her well. She will be staying close and going to beauty school in Ames. Good Luck Tiff!

Brazos wanted a turn too!

Dad and Braxton all smiles while watching some softball.

Kaden and Brayson talking it over at the game. Kaden wanted to know if Brayson thought that his dad was doing a good job. Brayson thought so. He was so proud he held his head up to watch!

Brazos on his 2nd birthday - he was more interested in eating carrots than cake.

There were three in the bed and the little one said roll over, roll over, so they all rolled over and one jumped out! The boys were playing in Brayson's bed while I was changing out his clothes. They were having a good time so I thought I better capture it on camera before our attitudes changed.

Brayson sitting up real big in his Bumbo

Brazos helping dad mow the lawn

Braxton enjoying some cake at the birthday party, look there in the back ground - dad is enjoying some too.

Four boys all smiles!

Happy Birthday!!

Happy Birthday Little Man! I can not believe that it has been two years already. My how time flies. Just yesterday we were bringing you home from the hospital and watching Braxton adjust to you. You are a precious little boy and are learning more and more every day. I am so amazed at how you have grown and all that you continue to do and say. You are a sweet little one and I am so glad that God has blessed my life with you. I look forward to all the years to come attitude and all. Keep loving live and learning every day. I love you Brazos!! ~Mom
