HAPPY FATHER'S DAY!

I have been trying to organize pictures and I found this one of when Tate was a little chubby three year old. Who knew that this shirt would become his number 1 favorite all time thing to wear. I miss his little toddler face. He is getting so grown up and sophisticated these days. I love listening to him talk. He has such a hilarious vocabulary and loves to give you EVERY detail of his stories- It can get a little exhausting at times but I love that he expresses himself. Such a good boy........

Tate went horn hunting, fishing, and rabbit hunting with his dad last weekend. I love it when my boy comes home and turns the bath water brown! I feel like Chad gives the kids the best childhood by sharing his love of the outdoors. You have to watch the video of Tate finding a horn. Chad finds them first and then makes it seem like Tate is the champion finder- LOVE IT! He always comes home so proud of his finds. He seems to be using his arm more and more which is great seeing as how it has not been bending so well after the break. Did I mention his horrible break healed three weeks earlier than he was supposed to? He was pushing the pins out and they were scraping on his cast. After taking him to get x-rayed, the surgeon determined he was healed and ready to begin physical therapy. He still has some issues with it but he is such a trooper. I can't believe I get to have another little boy to raise and cuddle and send out with his dad and big brother......................I love my boys!

So very sick of putting my feet up! The bed rest thing is hard and I am actually only on a moderate bed rest............ Reading books and taking naps and watching movies is so much more appealing when you have to fight for it. Now that it is within my reach at all times it has lost it's gleam! I just want to do projects and play with my kids! Thank you to all who have stopped by for visits with treats or have helped with my kids- it means more to me than you will ever know......
On the last day of school we had a neighborhood celebration. The kids got off the bus to find a water party complete with snow cones! I ate about four of them..........now I dream of them every night. Liv is now a second grader and Tate is a kindergartner. I truly can't believe it. We are going to have such a fun summer!

So my body needs to rest but my brain wants to "NEST"! I am feeling like a prisoner today and even though the medicine is working really well I still am getting contractions especially when I push it too much with getting up. I really thought this little guy would be different but he is reminding me so much of being pregnant with Ms. Livy at the end. I am slowly getting things ready in the baby's room and luckily I have fabulous friends who are willing to help out. I have basically cut in half my expectations of how I wanted the house to be when Brigg got here. I know this picture doesn't look like I am really huge but I think that is the problem- My kids just don't pop out! They squish inside of me and make me feel stuffed. I am just waiting for his arm to pop out of my mouth! (remember that dream sis?) Well, I best get back to bed, I am secretly hoping that since I got ready today Chad will want to take me to lunch!
