Baby No More

Today is my baby boys 1st birthday.
So I feel that I should tell you the story of Mason.
When we found out I was pregnant with Mason I was really upset.
It wasn't a planned pregnancy I really felt that I wasn't ready to take care of another child.
After he was born every fear I had just melted away.
Not because of his squishy cuteness but because of the joy I felt when he looked at me.
He was the happiest baby ever and I actually feel that it is easier with 3 children instead of 2.
Since he's been born I've never had a question about him belonging in our family.
He makes me want to be a better Mother
and I know that my Heavenly Father was watching over me
and knew that I needed him in my life.
And I am so grateful to be entrusted with raising him.
I just wish he would grow up a little slower.
So here are a few pictures of the squishy cuteness that's so fun to look at and more fun to touch.
 I really don't know why this picture won't rotate.


So go give your babies a hug because we all know they grow up way to fast and there's nothing we can do about it.

I Got In A Fight

I have a love, hate relationship with the shower.
I love to get clean and warm up with the hot water but
I hate having to do my hair.
Maybe I hate my hair more than my shower but that's not important.
My shower is having issues right now.
It has decided that water pressure isn't important.
It feels like laying back and doing as little work as possible.
Well remember that hair I have issues with?
It's kinda long
and thick
and it NEEDS water pressure.
Not only is the shower lazy
it's started taunting me.
Yeah a little spit in the face every morning...
Literally.
When I turn the water off it shoots a nice strong burst of water at me before it turns off.
I know it's seriously cruel.
So today I yelled at it.
Yep, got in a fight with my shower.
Now if we wanted to analyze the situation I would say I'm probably more upset about that it's been over a week and I still don't remember it's going to do it.
Or it could be that I really hate my shower.

My Goofy Goofs


I have had a lot of time lately to just enjoy my family.
Well some of the time we are enjoying and sometimes we are running around like crazies.
But no matter what we are doing I can't go a day without thinking about how grateful to have the family that I have. I've been having tailbone problems for about a month and it's really limited what I can do but Reed has been great about it even though it means more work for him. 
And when I see the kids playing together and getting along it just melts me. 
Yesterday Ava was asking me how to make the letter e. Before I could even say anything Braeden jumped in "Come to the chalkboard and I'll show you." When I went into the toy room later it was covered with letters that they had been writing together.
So to give you an idea of what I see on a regular basis I recorded them playing tonight. If you watch it 500 times in a row you'll get an idea of what my night was REALLY like.

I know they are seriously nuts!
 And because we can't forget the little man here's a little video of his new talent for our family that's not around here. Sorry you have to tilt your head. I'm not sure why I thought you could flip it.

I know I am seriously blessed!
