Summer 2013, Week 7

Well, this week may not have been at eventful as normal…but it was pretty special since we got to spend some extra time with dada and make some sweet memories too.  So highlights….

Wesson…turned 15 months!  That little guy just melts my heart and I am NOT sorry at all that he is a Mama’s Boy!  Love my little Tubba-Wubba!


He is now sitting at the table too!!! Well, welcome to the real world my BIG man!  If you eat like a big boy, we will treat you like one!  HEHE!


Love love love these moments and snuggle with just him!  SO SPECIAL!


He got his first golf lessons from Daddy!  And of course, anything that involves a ball and something to swing…this little guy is IN! Natural Athlete!



Oh his obsession with BAT BAT BAT continues as he struts around the house sporting his new backpack!

And of course, there you go…climbing on to ANYTHING you can!  Going to give me a heart attack crazy!

All BOY, ALL the time!  Here you are carrying a ball and splashing in the puddle!  OH BUG!

AND WAYLON......oh my Mini!  You just impress me each and every day!  You ask me to pray with you when you see an ambulance and you are always willing to grab a Band-Aid whenever someone has a ouchie!  Your kind heart and sincere concern for others just makes me so proud of you!  You are a remarkable young boy!

On top of having a heart that is so are just a SUPER smart dude!  You can count to 100 by tens!  Go Mini GO!  You can write your own name...ALL BY YOURSELF!
You also worked a bit more on patterns with aliens and space ships (YOU LOVE THESE), your math facts, some fun science experiment with milk and soap,
practiced using glue and applying noodles in the shapes of a W
and of course some fun painting with you brother!

Oh and I caught you getting them Dada snuggles during nap time too!  You love your Dada!
But, what has been most exciting for me this week is watching both the boys continue to grow together!  They literately are ALWAYS together and it is so awesome to watch them learn from one another and grow together!  They make me so proud how they have each other's backs and how Waylon helps to introduce Wesson to so many new and exciting things!  I also love watching Wesson get so excited and clap for Waylon any time Waylon accomplishes something new!  We have some amazing sons!

And while the boys were lucky enough to get some extra lovins and times with Dada....
I was too!  Had some fun kicking Dada's booty TWICE while playing Scrabble.
He he...had to get that in there! 
I just love my family...I love how we don't have to be on some crazy vacation or doing something long as we are together....EVERYTHING feels right!  Love my boys and I will forever feel so lucky to be right where I am, right now!

Bug-A-Lug is 15 MONTHS

15 Months of pure LOVE and PERFECTION!

Wesson Lee…I tell ya Tubby….you are one special and loved little man!  You are climbing on chairs, running out the front door, jumping, running through sprinklers, wrestling on the bed, dancing with mama, leaping right into the pool, and flying through the air when Dada throws ya!

You are obsessed with balls...kicking or throwing them, bats, golf clubs, food, books, BATMAN, monster hugs, nursing, grapes, your BROTHER,  snuggles, cars, King of the Hill, popsicles, bubbles, stairs, throwing your food, helping with the dishes and laundry, high-fives and first pumps, and tickles!

YOU ARE TOUGHER THAN NAILS!!  Don’t back up, don’t back down!  But Sweeter than any Boy I have ever met!  You hold my face when you give me kisses and rub my back when I carry you!  And Tub-A-Lub, you finish ALL your dinner and then Waylon’s too!  And you have your Dada’s attitude.  If anyone tells you no, you look right at them and do it anyway!  (Oh, that is going to be SOOOOO cute in a few months!)

I can’t believe you are already 15 months old!  You have filled our home and hearts with so much love and laughter.  I will never understand how I got so lucky to be your Mama!  You are the cutest damn thing I have ever seen and stinkin smart too!  I am so blessed by you and so proud to see you grow and learn each day!  YOU are my greatest gift! God has a fabulous future planned for you, I just know it!

We love you Baby Brother Bug-A-Lug!  No baby brother has ever been loved more!

Summer 2013, Week 6

WOWZA!  What a week it has been.  HOLY MOLY!  But, this blog is going to focus on some of the amazing moments that the Lord allowed us to have this week.
Let's start with Bug-A-Lug!
Our little brainiac is taking off!  He worked on new flashcards this week, is talking a WHOLE bunch, JUMPING, CLIMBING onto the chair and couch, mimicking EVERY little thing his BIG bro does, learning all about the color red in his red sensory box, and picking up every ball he sees then running and grabbing a bat!  We've got a BALLER on our hands!
The Mini Man kept working on his flash cards, managed to memorize a whole bunch of new songs off of our Sunday school CD, can write the letters W, a, l, o, n all on his own, (we are working on brother's name too)
spent some of this week working on the money coins, what letter they each start with, and how much they are all worth.  (we used his chore money!)
 Then we "washed" the pennies with apple cider vinegar and salt!  Mini Loved this....until the vinegar got into some of his eczema sore! :(  But, he still thought it was pretty cool!
We also spent some time writing on the eisle and coloring too! 
And while a lot of our plans for Daddy's birthday didn't quite work out....we did get to spend some extra special time with him at Discover the Dinosaurs!!!  We thought it was just the coolest ever!  BOTH the boys were SO into it and it was great to see them explore, be archieologist and search for bones in the sand, and even ride a dinosaur!  It was just awesome!
The boys played a bit outside on evening in on the swings!  This is ONE of our most favorite things to do!  Oh and bounce-a-bounced too!
And, we spent one night with Grandma and Grandpa celebrating out awesome and ice cream cake! MMMMM
And a few nights later Grammy and Papa came over for dinner and cake too!  We have THE BEST FAMILY!
OH and we made Dada a Copenhagen cake and spent some time just loving on our favorite guy!  You are world's most amazing lucky to be your wife and our boys have you to look up to!  THANK YOU for always being the kind of man, I hope our boys turn into! 
Oh and Wes got stung by a wasp! :((((
And a few of my other favorite pictures from this week....
 Playing with Auntie Linds and TRASHIES!
It is CRAZY how fast the boys are growing and CONSTANTLY changing!  We are just so lucky to be their parents and are having so much fun every second we get to spend with them!
THIS has been so on my heart this week! 
Thank you Lord, for letting me be their Mama!  May they always follow YOU and may they always know they are LOVED!
