You've got a friend in Will!

 We had an, everything Toy Story Birthday Party for Williams 3rd birthday. He's so into Toy Story right now so he Everywhere you looked there was a character hiding in the corner, or a sweet saying from one of the movies. I kept this party small which I loved but that didn't stop me from going a little over board with all things in theme for this special birthday boy!

We enjoyed "pizza planet" pizzas, a yummy salad, our favorite pretzels, and of course lots of yummy deserts. I did this party as easy as I could and I loved that I was left with plenty of time to visit with family and friends and enjoy watching my boy soak it all in. I had been sick on and off for about a week the day of Will's party, I just kept thinking I'll be sick later, this is about Will... and boy did I pay. See next post. Looking back while writing this I cant believe I held it together as long as I did feeling as horrible as I did.

One of Will's favorite things about birthdays is singing happy birthday, especially when its to him. He gets really quiet with the biggest smile on his face and he is just in awe of it all. It makes me melt and get all teary eyed watching how much he enjoys this simple special part.
When you ask Will what he wishes for he always says "to have a fun day" This is usually what we wish on stars for too...

 Will got some great new toy story toys he loves, including his NEW Buzz! And the next morning Uncle Tim brought him some brand new golf clubs!

Side note: The other day we all went shopping, when we got home and got Parker out of the car seat we realized he had pooped and it had "blown out" as Luke and I laugh, and wipe, laugh and wipe, and Luke acts like he might get sick Will says "WAIT GUYS (he always calls us guys, I love it) I'LL GET BUZZ, HE ALWAYS KNOWS WHAT TO DO!" He right away went and got Buzz and started shooting his laser beam at the disgusting diaper.
We all had a good laugh after that!

I love these two pictures so much, it sums it up perfectly.... Will is simply the sweetest most compassionate person you will ever meet. My heart hurts with how much love I have for him, he is an amazing son, a great friend, a silly grandson, and an all around perfect little person. I love the person he is and the person I can see him becoming. Before you are a mom you never know the amount of love you will have for your child, but every day my love for this little boy grows more and more, and I thank God all the time for giving me the opportunity to be his mommy.
 Happy THIRD birthday William Lucas, I don't know what I would do without you in my life, I love you, I love you, I love you, so so much ;)

Will Quotes

Happy Fall everyone... ummm hello, is this thing on?
I'm not sure if anyone reads this or not, But figured its time to update a little on the ol' family blog!

We've been doing good, going through the grind... work, kids, family, home, and trying to squeeze in just as much fun as we can. Which has been pretty easy considering we has a pretty mild end to the summer and just an amazing Fall, I literally cannot remember the last time weve had weather this nice for this long.
This time next week I will have a THREE year old GASP! I know right, what happened to the past three years and that fat pregnant lady that was waddling around 41 weeks ready to pop. Feels like it was yesterday but then again it doesn't, Love that our sweet family is complete and I'm at perfect ease saying that, and showing it by getting rid of everything. Loving de cluttering our house and hopefully making it easier to move sometime sooner rather than later! 
What better way to start documenting again than with some of my favorite recent quotes from Mr. Will

Reading book in bed that has a flap torn.... "The book is broken, daddy can fix it."

On the way to school, "mommy where you going? I've gotta go to work buddy. with your girls? No buddy not with my girls. why? I dont work with my girlfriends sweetie, I wish I did though. Ohhh, you just go to dinner with the girls? Yes buddy." Love the way his little mind works.

Going down slip and slide, "mommy I wanna ride ON you!"

When I have a dress on for work in the morning... "Mommy you going dancing?"

Speaking of mornings, 4 out of the 7 days of the week I go in Wills room dressed and ready for work, latley the days I am ready he immediatly falls on the floor whining and crying becuase he knows its not a day we can lay around in our pj's and rest in bed. :(
The past two Tuesdays Will has waited in his bed after nap till I got home 5:15 becuase he wants me and no one else... its a phase were going through he has to have mommy do everything. #luckymommy

Last Friday we went to Food Truck Friday at tower grove park with some friends. Luke took Will potty for his first experience in a porta potty.... Luke was scared he was going to touch stuff so he made him hold onto his leg. Will must usually not get that close... " Daddy you have a BIG wee wee!"

About a lot of things "Mommy, thats a GREAT idea! I'm so glad you thought of that!"

When Parker makes a crying or weird noise. "Parka doesnt like me!"

Mr. Parker is 6 months old & lots of brotherly love

In the past six months I have felt many emotions, pure joy and love and the first sights of my sweet son. Fear and anxiety at the challenge of taking care of two babies 2 and under. Craziness and stress at the task of becoming a full time working mommy of two. But the emotion that sums up the past amazing six months the best "humbling" I just dont know how I got so lucky to be blessed with these two perfect boys and this amazing little family I call my own. My heart literally bursts at the seams everytime I lay my eyes on these two little mini me's weve created. And day by day step by step were finding our stride in this crazy busy new normal life and I love it. Theres not a night I sit down before 9 pm or a morning that starts any later than 6 am, theres always dishes to do, baths to give, and babies to kiss on, and I love it. After 3 years now of contemplating if I am doing the right thing and questioning my every move I make, I now know I am living my calling. I am not only a great mommy to these two amazing boys, I am providing an awesome life for them all at the same time. I do wish there were more hours in the day and the weekends were longer, but dont we all? I've just learned to make every.single.second with them memorable and count the best it can!

Such a SWEET baby!!!


Love this one!

Love these two human beings with every morsel in my body!

Its impossible to catch them both with that sparkly smile at the SAME time!

I caught them playing together and just happened to have the camera handy!

hand placement, melts me

Still my Mr. Sweet tooth! Love him!
