Happy Birthday Jett!

Oh my sweet, sweet boy! I can't believe you have already blessed our lives for two whole years! You changed my life! This child is just about the sweetest thing. He loves to cuddle with his mommy, is always telling us he loves us, and is just a charmer all the way around. His favorite things right now are choo choos, cars, trucks, guns, and Buzz and Woody. He is ALL BOY!!! I am thankful for that, and boy does it keep me busy! He loves to wrestle and be rowdy, loves to get in the car and GO! Anytime we get in the car, he thinks we are going to Mimi and Poppy's house! He loves to play with friends, and is always asking about Lizzie and Lainie.

He is 28 lbs 4 ozs, which I guess is a little small for his height. That doesn't really surprise me though since his diet consists of crackers, cereal, yogurt, smoothies, peanut butter, nutella, hotdogs, cheese, spaghetti, pancakes, and that's about it! He is 34 3/4 inches tall which puts him in the 50th percentile, long and lean like Daddy.

Some funny quirks about Jett right now:
  • he has some Thomas the Train snow boots that he insists on wearing everyday, not to mention they are three sizes too big
  • if he has a new favorite toy, it has to go to bed with him, including the giant trash truck he got for his birthday
  • he LOVES his shoes, wants to wear them all the time
  • every night, he still wants to be rocked, then Adam and I have to go in separately to pray with him
  • he answers almost every question, "yeah, shoo" (yeah, sure!)
  • if he is wearing a button down shirt, especially pjs, he likes it all the way unbuttoned
I am crazy about this kid and thank the Lord for the blessing of him! Happy Birthday Buddy! You are treasured!

"Even youths grow tired and weary,
and young men stumble and fall; but those who hope in the LORD
will renew their strength.
They will soar on wings like eagles;
they will run and not grow weary,
they will walk and not be faint." Isaiah 40:30-31

Cuddling with Mommy


I'm TWO!!!

Christmas 2010

Christmas is such a precious time! This year, it was SO FUN to see the kids reaction to everything! We really wanted to start sticking with some family traditions this year. Adam was so fun in that he wanted to make sure that we did some sort of Christmas activity every week. We did our Jesse Tree Advent again this year, and the kids really got into the stories. We spent some time in beautiful downtown Grapevine, we went to the Southlake tree lighting, NorthPark Trains, Parade of Lights, lots of Christmas movies, and even our own "Tahoe Express!" Adam was the conductor with a train whistle and all, kids had to be in their pjs, wear a jingle bell necklace, and have a ticket! It was so fun, and we saw some beautiful lights! We loved celebrating our Savior together as a family!

This is a sweet picture of my babies before Addie's Christmas program at school:And this is a SAMPLING of all of the shots that it took to get the one above :)

The cookie table was right at Jett's level

Strike a pose!

Two Months

Yet again, I cannot believe that another month has gone by! This baby is P.R.E.C.I.O.U.S.!!! I am SO in love. He is the sweetest, calmest little thing, we'll see if that sticks around, the other two are not so calm! :) At his appointment last week, he was 11 lbs 1 oz which puts him in the 25th percentile, and he was 23 inches long putting him between the 25th and 50th percentile. So, he's a little guy, or a long, skinny little man. And his head is still in the 25th, quite a difference from his older siblings! He is just a "go with the flow" kind of boy and SO smiley. That gummy grin melts my heart. He has been sleeping 4-5 hours at a time at night, but last night he slept from 11-8, WHOA NELLIE! What a change! Hoping that trend sticks, even though there is definitely a part of me that already grieves those times where it is just the two of us at night, those are precious moments. He is definitely a paci boy, and I think that he is trying to suck his thumb, he's always trying to suck on his hands. His brother and sister are nuts about him! Addie is continuing her role as a little mommy and Jett loves to say, "Well, hi baby!" and tell me how cute the baby is. He has also gotten very good at saying "Shh Shh Shh," to him when he fusses, which is just not very often, unless he is in his car seat, or he gets his shots! Poor baby, he was SO offended! Tears and everything!

So, yes, I am smitten with this little boy! I have so many more pictures to post and many fun pictures of Christmas and all of the fun stuff that we were able to do with the kids. Hopefully I will get around to that soon. Its supposed to be FRIGID this week, so I'm thinking we'll have a lot of inside time, maybe I'll get to it then...if there's one thing I have learned being a mom of three, there is not much down-time! I hit the floor running in the morning, but I wouldn't trade it for the world! Love it!
