4 Weeks

 Thursday - My little boy is 4 weeks old today already.
 I think I could say the same thing over and over - where has the time gone?

 He is such a joy!
We headed out this morning for Moss Wright Park. The kids were so excited!
After we ate at Chick Fil A
CJ joined us which was so nice!

I love my little snuggle bug!

Friday -The kids decided it would be a good idea to get dressed in their wedding outfits this morning.

They were such a big help getting ready for Britton's birthday party. Now I'm just praying it doesn't rain! We went out this afternoon to Sams with mom and Robert. Brandon took Britton to a Sounds game with the church and Paityn, Beckett and I went out to eat with mom and Robert.

First Full Day of Summer

Tuesday - Today was the first day that I had all three kids by myself.

Now, I've had them on and off and during the afternoons but not yet an entire day. The kids were great!

 Bethany, my best friend in Canada, had a sweet baby boy named Jaxon. I can only hope that our boys can have a relationship like Bethany and I do!

 Wednesday - This morning we played and then headed to the strawberry patch with Bre, Meghan and Haley. 

 The kids were impressed with picking for about 10 minutes and then they were done!

We stopped by Sonic, headed home for quiet time and then spent some time in the pool in the afternoon. Overall it was a great day and I'm hoping to have many more like it!

Tonight we were out by the pool before church when we saw two of these. Not cool! If I have a phobia, it is snakes, I don't care if they are poisonous or not. They are so gross! Luckily Travis was here and got them out of the pool area. Mom came home with four bags of snake away. I don't want to see them again!
Here is Britton, Paityn and Beckett in the same outfit. When they are all side by side they look so much alike!

Memorial Day

 Saturday - The kids sure love their little brother. They love him so much that pretty soon I'm sure one of them will get punched in the face! Britton did get Beckett to smile at him, so much fun to watch.

We headed out this morning to pick up report card and then to a soccer game that apparently had gotten cancelled. We wanted to get out anyways so it worked out! Britton had gotten a new teacher a couple months ago, Ms. LaRae - he loved her! We were really blessed with a great first year despite all the changes that happened.

This is the last time that Britton will walk out of Coopertown as a kindergartener. Now I have a first grader!

Sunday - After church on Sunday we headed out to eat with the Batsons for Andy's birthday. Beckett slept all the way through lunch so by the time I got him fed and home, he was wide awake.
We had a little cookout this afternoon even though the pool was still freezing!
The kids loved it though.

Britton loves swimming but it was so much fun to see Paityn have such a good time as well.
They swam until their lips were blue!

Monday - Of course the kids woke up wanting to swim. I made them wait a little while to get in so they spent some time "cleaning" the pool.

After swimming and quiet time, we headed to Rivergate for dinner with Brandon.

What a great weekend!

3 weeks

Tuesday - Love my sleepy, snuggly little boy!

Wednesday - Today we made strawberry jam from the strawberries we picked. The kids love helping with it all!

Thursday - My little boy is already 3 weeks old!

The worst part is I just keep thinking how quickly I have to go back to work.

He has been such a joy already to our entire family.

He really has been a great baby. He sleeps well and really only cries when he wants something.
Now he loves to eat and can cry pretty loud if you don't feed him right away.
He makes the sweetest baby noises and sounds of contentment when he breastfeeds.

I love these three!
Beckett's favorite place to be.
