Pierce 26 Month Birthday!

I cannot believe I have had you for 26 MONTHS! I am one BLESSED mama! I love you son! You are definatly going through some changes. You have become very clingy. You just need your mommy and daddy a lot right now. You need us and you need us to not be with brother. I think you need to feel important and I want you to! SOn I love you. I think about you and I honestly lose my breath you are the sweetest most special little boy in the whole wide world. I never want to take one moment for gratite with you boys. I am so thankful to have all this time with you! You are speaking so much more now and so much more clearly. You talk constantly. You have also developed a love of books! I love this. It only took you 2 years to get here and cable being cancelled so we nev er watch tv but now you love it! THere are many evenings we sit on the couch all 4 of us we read books and sing songs. And than almost everynight after dinner we go for our evening walk. You ride the scooter and mommy and dadd walk. This is one of my favorite times of day with you, brother and Daddy! Its very strange though you think every color is green... hmm... i wonder if you are colorblind LOL! You sleep in yoru room great now because you are locked in. WE had to do this because you kept escaping when you were supposed to be sleeping! It works and you sleep better! You can count to ten! You also sing Holy Holy Holy is the lord God almighty. There are times when my days are busy and you say "Mommy"... I look at you and you have your hands folded and you say "pray" and so we do! Son I am so thankful that you have a heart for Jesus! When we pass the church you yell for it! You want to be there. I pray to God this desire to know and love him will never falter! I want you to be a light for the Lord and to always proclaim his name! You are amazing son! You will be a leader when you are older you will be someone GREAT! I can't put into words how special you really are. I know that God has some BIG plans for you and I pray I mold and guide you the way the Lord would have me to! You are perfect!

Little boy I adore you i love you and I am so thankful for you! Thank you for being my little boy for being super atheltic I think its awesome and for being strong headed. I like the strong headedness because I know like I said you will be a leader and you will make a difference!!!

North Dakota and Changes

Oh my loves how things have changed. Hayden you went with Mommy and Daddy to North Dakota to meet your little cousin caleb! You were such a delightful little baby the whole trip... wait BIG baby! You are a big boy! You were so good on the airplane you were wonderful there you are just such a little sweetie right now. Everyone who meets you is just amazed at how much you smile. How you are the happiest baby they have ever seen. They say you should be on commercials or in photos. I let them know it only took four months of screaming to get this great baby! We will take ya. The only bad habit you picked up is wanting to sleep in bed with Mommy EVERY SINGLE NIGHT! So we are going to be making some changes over here. We missed your brother terribly while we were gone. I think you were very happy to see him and him to see you.

So the changes we are making besides Hayden forcing you to sleep in your own bed now but cutting out all junk food. WE want you and brother to be healthy happy boys and so we are going to start putting more boundries and less junk around our home. I think this will make for happier boys and happier parents. We just love you both so much and really do want the best for you boys! Hayden the other day you have starte dthe huge belly laugh it cracks me up. You still don't do it often but when you do it is amazing. Your brother is the one who can get you to laugh the most. Well boys I adore you both more than you know and I am so thankful to be your mommy and I can't wait to see what the future holds! I love you Pierce and Hayden!

Happy 6 Months Hayden Jackson!

Hayden my love you are 6 months old! How the time flies. You do so many new things now adays. You sit like a king. You are so good at sitting and honestly I don't know how you got so good at it because I hold you about 75% of the day but you are darn good at it. So now you sit alot. You are also a rolly polly!!! You roll everywhere. Before I know it you will be crawling! AHHHH!!! You adore your big brother. I don't know what I did right in this world to have two little boys who love eachother to pieces! You are such a sweet reminder of how much God has blessed me!

hayden this last month has also been challenging. From putting you on some type of schedule to you being on a nursing strike! I thought for sure that yesterday on your real 6 months of life that we were done nursing for good. You didn't nurse at all yesterday till finally at bedtime I let you try one more time. And boy did you do good. Than today all day you have nursed great. I don't know maybe you needed a day break. I cried and cried because it broke my heart that you refused to nurse. It made me so sad and I cried to your daddy that I know this won't be the last time you break my heart. But the good news is we will still nurse and if you refuse a time than you can have a bottle and I will be ok. I think honestly you are just to busy and like to see what every one else is doing so why would you want to nurse when you can have a bottle! OH well time will tell.

Your other new favorite thing is waking up sometime in the middle of the night wanting to come to bed with us. So what do I do? I of course bring you to bed. I would rather sleep well than constantly try to get you to sleep in your bed. Atleast for now. This time is only for a short time before you know it you won't want your mommy anymore so I am enjoying every second with you. I lay you right smack in the middle of the bed on your pillow and your gone! You sleep like a champ in my bed! I love you little boy.

Well we leave tomorrow for North Dakota! That will be crazy and I know you will miss your brother but I am so excited to see your newest little cousin. I love you son you are the light of my eye! Thank you for being such a great little boy and for loving your family so much. I pray and hope that the love you have for us will also be the love you have for our Lord and Savior! I love you little boy!

Love your mama!
