New Milestones

Linford has hit some new milestones!

I don't know if we can call it walking just yet but he is taking 5 to 6 steps ALL ON HIS OWN! I am trying to get it on video to post so everyone can be excited with us!

He also has his 2 fangs on the top, not the two teeth in the middle yet but its so cute. I am trying to get a good picture to post.

He now plays peek-a-boo and I got some really good pictures that I will post of that soon

He waves and it's really sweet.

He not only crawls up the stairs BUT down the stairs as well.

Hewitt will be 3!!!

Hewitt is Growing UP!

I will do a real tribute on his birthday (August 4th) but its JUST AROUND the CORNER, and EVERYDAY and I mean EVERYDAY, ALL DAY LONG, he asks when it will be here. He is so excited to turn 3 and he is starting pre-school too!
So MUCH is going on for him this month!

Pioneer Day Get-Away

My family has a "get-away" that we take every 24th of July and this year we were able to have horses at the place we stayed. Hewitt LOVED it. He wanted to spend ALL his time feeding the horses. He's never nervous or scared around animals even big ones like these. It's really great, but sometimes scary for me!

Grammy bought the boys these shirts and they LOVED them

Here's Hewitt feeding the horses again, he named them Harry and Mark. One of them had blonde hair and Hewitt said excitedly, "look mom, he has blonde hair just like me!"

Here's the fam sitting in the hot tub. Look at Linsey pulling a face! Everyone is there but Jackson and Heather and my mom.

Kids Say the Darndest Things...

Well I just think chunky babies are the cutest thing ever.
Skinny ones are cute too, but sorry,
not as cute as chunky ones.
SO whenever I am giving Linford a bath or when he's sportin' a onsie or a diaper, I will always say in a cheesy baby voice,
"ohhhh, look at those cute little chunky's!"
Well, Hewitt has definitely caught on and will say the same thing in the same voice to Linford ALL THE TIME...its really cute.
Then the other day I was cleaning the floor and Hewitt came up behind me and said,
"ohhh look mom, you have cute little chunky's"
I turned and looked at him,
shaking my head I HAD TO LAUGH.
So, I brushed it off, "he's just a 3 year old" I told myself and then today I was sitting on the couch and he said it AGAIN! He said,
"ohhhh look at your cute little chunky's mom!"
AGAIN, I just had to laugh.
Kids Say the Darndest Things!

I am so completely GREATFUL for these three boys in my life. I have just been reminded over and over of my gratitude for them and I feel like I have to let it out!
I went somewhere with just Hewitt last night and then somewhere with only Linford today and I was overwhelmed with JOY when I was with each of them. BUT I AM ALWAYS OVER-JOYED when I am with them....They are THE BEST boys in the world and THE CUTEST, MOST HANDSOM boys ever. I am so BLESSED to be surrounded by such amazing spirits.
Brandon is just the most patient loving person. I don't know what I would do without him. He is everything to me. I am so blessed to be able to spend the REST of this Life with him and the NEXT.
