Father's Day 2014

3 of my favorite dads in one picture. 

My baby daddy. He has completely surprised me in the last two years. He loves his baby!!!! He is such a hard worker and always puts me and Henry first. What a role model he is for Hen. Drew helps make this parenting gig a lot more fun!!!! 

My dad. The first man that I ever loved. Such a hard headed hard worker. You continue to work so hard for our family. You and my baby daddy are so alike it is scary! Thank you for loving us no matter what decisions we make! 

My BIG brother. Such a role model for his own sons and my own.  You love your family unconditionally. Thank you for allowing me to be such a big part of your children's life as well as loving Hen like you do. 

You all ROCK. You all have your crazy personality traits but I Love you all. Thank you for all that y'all do.

Living Life

We have been so busy having fun that updating this blog is the last on my list. We have been busy playing, going to baseball tournaments and hanging with friends. 

Update on Henry. He is a maniac!!!!!! Loves all things boy. Trucks, cars, any ball, tools, sports and being loud.msems like in the last week he screams when he does anything. He Loves to growl, not sure where this came from but he does it all day, happy or sad. When he is with his cousins he thinks he's just as big as they are. Love the relationship they have with each other.  He survived his first session of swim lessons like a champ. He loves the water this year. He is a mess but in such a fun stage!!!!!!! Love that boy!!!!

Update on Andrew. He is working a ton like usual. He got a new truck that his son thinks is amazing! He has been spring hunting and got him a turkey. Life is good in his eyes!!!

My update! I am busy subbing. I've been with the same class for the last 3 weeks and have 3 more weeks with those sweet angels. It's been quite the experience but I would not change a thing. I have never worked this hard and it was complicated at first but I have and will survive. Ready for the summer. Drew and I have a beach vacation planned, some baseball tournaments and my dreaded school work.

All about Henry

This week my little man will be 26 months old. 

He is a mess!!! Out of control mess!!!!! He currently can say most words. Almost daily he amazes his dad and I with a new word. I love hearing his new vocabulary. I love asking him a question and him responding with "ok"! If you ask him what his name is he will respond with baby, so we have been trying our hardest to call him by his name rather than our baby!!!!! Andrew is very guilty of calling him baby!!!!!!!!!!! In a good way! 

He is currently obsessed with anything and everything baseball. Good thing he likes baseball considering the amount of tournaments he will be attending this summer. We play a game of catch multiple times a day. He is also obsessed with trucks!!!! No telling how many times in a car ride he mentions trucks. He loves the new show on Disney jr. Sheriff Callie's, he calls it sey sey for horsey. 

I hate to talk about this and jinx ourselves but  mission big boy bed is going so much better. Next up potty training during our spring break!!!!  Not sure I am ready for this as diapers are the only thing keeping him a baby.  

He eats like a pig and currently requests cupcakes a lot!!!! I blame this on recent birthday party attending and them serving cupcakes. So this crazy momma is going to make cupcakes just for her boy this weekend! 

I love this little boy more than he will ever know. I pray that we will always have this amazingly close relationship. I pray that he always thinks I am amazing and wants me to join him on his adventures. I hope that he always looks up to his older cousins and wants to do everything they do as they are the best role models for him. 

No recent pictures but boy has he changed over the last year. No longer a baby!!!!!

Brain Dump

Again, life has been super crazy.  I have been subbing daily and loving it!!!!! Hen is busier and hungrier than ever. And of course Andrew has been working nonstop!!!! Life couldn't be better!!!

We had a great Valentines day. Andrew got a little gift every day from February 1-14. It was way easier than I thought it would be! And I got the greatest gift of all!!! A new ring! I had no idea, never in a hundred years did I think that was my gift! Best Valentines ever!!!!!!!

Hen had 2 birthday parties the last two weekends. He had the best time! 

My whole family came last weekend and we had the best time. Hen thought he was a big boy and had the best weekend of his life. He played so hard and loved every minute of the baseball tournament!!!!! I know he can't wait til the next one. And is still asking for his gaga aka Grandma! My moms grand kids sure think she is the best!!!!!! 

I start my classes this weekend. I am very ready to get this first weekend over!!!! 

Hen being silly while playing with playdoh!!!!

Weekly Review

Last weekend me and little guy headed to Lubbock. No pictures were taken as we were too busy hanging with the fam! Hen had a blast! He LOVES hanging with his cousins!!!!! 

Hen had his first visit to the dentist for a check up. He did much better than I had anticipated. Glad it is over!!!! 

Thursday I had the day off and ran errands all morning plus did some dumpster diving. Yes, dumpster diving, long story, but I was eating breakfast and saw some suspicious men going thru some neat stuff so I decided to join them. And.........Andrew is so happy I did. He got 5 manikins. Just what we needed!!!!! Ends up that Hollister closed in the mall and they just throw everything away. We ended up going back later and got a table, bench and stands for the manikins. Andrew was one happy Dude!!!!! 

My classes start very soon so this weekend we are at home relaxing!!!!!!

And in case your wondering NO Henry is NOT sleeping in his bed!!!! I'm over it, very over it!!!!

Big Boy Bed

Recently I decided it was time to move Henry to his BBB. No reason, just felt since he was 2 it was time. So our journey began. Night one of course went better than expected!!!!! And from then it has just gotten worse. I am ready to throw in the towel. Yes, I admit almost everything else we have done with this child has been a cakewalk.  The past two nights my fat ass and his big butt have tried to sleep in a tiny twin bed. Don't worry Andrew thinks this is nothing, all while he sleeps in our King size bed. The crib is still set up and I would love to throw his but back in it! Hoping tonight is better as I am exhausted right now.  

In a few short weeks were going to tackle potty training so I would love to get this done before another adventure begins.  

Seriously who wouldn't want to cuddle with this dude all night!!!!!

Christmas 2013 and New Years

Christmas has come and gone. I can't say I am sad that it's all over. It's hard work, it's stressful and tiring. 

We went to my inlaws for the first part. Henry got his beloved truck there. It sure makes our walks easier.  

We then headed to Lubbock to celebrate with my family. I only took pictures with my good camera, which is haven't uploaded. 

We had a good time with family and got everything on our lists. This is the first year in years that I actually made a list and I am blessed to say I got everything I wanted. I must have been good. 

We had a blast celebrating Hen's 2nd Birthday. We made our first trip to Mr.Gattis. Hen and I loved it but Andrew was not impressed. Not much to offer here in Midland but he doesn't seem to understand!!! 

We had a pretty calm NYE, although it was fun we celebrated with our new friends, The Clicks. We had a nice steak dinner and the adults got to play some games while the kids played!!! We were in bed by 10, we're getting old!!! On New Year's Day I went to the famous Dillard's sale, I got some great stuff. This will become a tradition. Next year I just want Dillard's gift cards for Christmas to prepare.
