JuJu got these boys a new fun game! ⚽️

My little valentines

❤️ My big boys

A4C76E06-1ED4-42C2-A2B4-B761AE3D3701

They finally got a break in the weather long enough to play outside. Hallelujah. So this little man promptly went in our yard and picked all of these “flowers” just for me. Love it.

Thomas loves his big sister

People watch out. Spiderman is now armed with a bug sucker and a drill.

My little assistant

😫 Go away respiratory bug. Go. Away.

C72E0F19-B0A9-4553-8FFB-5FB298E80C9D

So much dang drama.

Lego maniac and his robot

9AAF6A6A-90CB-4A58-A1A5-E58E52D373A5

Soccer practice. 😑 One kid participated 99% of the time and the other stomped around, pouted and committed every foul known to man. I’ll let you guess who did what.

Big boy 💙

5BA5BD46-85C6-4EDB-AA8A-DBAADD5D5AA2

Today was a day. He needed to sleep. His twin did too but I’ll take what I can get. Lawd.

50D35C0F-8E4C-4BE3-8E66-0AC032B7CC79

His new thing is spitting. So what’s more fun than spitting with a mouth full of food? Nothing. Such fun 🙃

Cici and Grumps got suckered into “playing legos with the boys”. What really happens is the boys sit there while you search for all of the pieces and they do nothing. I’m a fellow sucker. Nightly. 😜

EEF284B3-E709-4ECD-A104-6F58F59A66FE

Sweet, chunky hands 💕

Cooking pasta with daddy

482612E4-F0D1-4FEE-927B-6322ADCC7E0F

We had our first tutorial on taking a shower by themselves  in their own shower (yes, I made sure they scrubbed everywhere). Charlie loved the independence of it and Tuck carried on a bit. Pretty typical.

272CC0B7-22A5-4FF8-BEC1-E22E23CB02AD

What a pouty face! 

EE109284-70A5-4FC7-A257-A30C5BC53E0D

And to the doctor’s office we go. Thomas had a checkup scheduled anyways so I took Tuck with me when he woke up with a fever! With all this flu going around I got scared! It was just a little fever virus & is gone. Thank goodness. 

3827B744-408B-4258-A712-7C64EE868DDA

Little man was given the green light at his four month appointment to try rice and puréed fruits & veggies. So we tried rice first. He was a little unsure about it. He didn’t hate it, but he wasn’t asking for more or anything. Think he was glad to try something new.

C8C326B4-2009-4840-982B-346B82BA08B1

Home from school means he had to go to work with mommy for a minute. Kid/work logistics are hard when our normal family help is out of pocket!!!!! 

926A04F0-C855-43DD-8C00-AB457565A3F0

Then we tried bananas……and he wanted more. And more. They were definitely a hit. And he was definitely ready for food. Boyfriend sucked up anything that dribbled out 😜.

My babies at the table together ❤️

Making valentines for our school friends and family. This took a minimum of 1.5 hours. Wore. Me. Out.

How precious is this?!

8B326873-0F20-4079-B256-12F9EA8D8EF5

Can’t. Keep. His. Hands. Off. Thomas. Or anyone. But mainly Thomas in our house. He’s a sweet boy though with a heart of gold.

“Hibernation Day” at school. They celebrated by using tents, flashlights and bringing animals that hibernate to school. They had a blast!!!

C9BF858E-5CC0-45EF-8F30-E28876076C8A

We took the whole crew to the races, oh yes we did.

My big boy turned 4 months old today!!!! This happy boy has added yelling/talking, putting everything into his mouth, trying to sit up and watching his brothers to his list of his favorite things to do.

A8D277A5-FD11-47F8-A8D2-7623D0F0B288

So incredibly sweet. I hope they realize one day how special these walks to school were.💙

B8B78D30-32AC-41A9-BD5C-DA7826A59A5E

Big boy!!!!

D247A399-CDFF-422B-A37F-90DFAF5AADDD

Love this boy’s smile and his new found laugh 💕

FD71D035-0877-4196-A95F-49AFD51CE36A

So these guys could not take their eyes off “Chopped” last night. We watched three shows back to back. They loved every minute-especially Alton. 😜 Charlie now wants to be a chef.

Heyyyyy good lookin 😍

This boy has decided he likes toys!

Catching the first snowflakes of winter

99CDE4CF-B424-4552-BA65-12113294CF85

So disgusting. But I’m glad they ate. Too bad they used their pjs as napkins afterwards.😕

Hoping for enough snow to build a snowman

Tuck couldn’t wait to make hot chocolate and drink it by the fire 💕

22EB745E-892A-468D-8C0C-F6838BBD1EB9

Snowball fight! You can imagine how this ended. If you can’t, it ended in tears and tattle tailing. 

E3A07853-F5CA-4FE4-AC04-AC104A7DF17B

Other than my finger being in it, it was a pretty cute pic 🤪

We are implementing a new helper program over here so everyone gets equal attention from Ben & I. Tuck was my helper this week, so he made sandwiches for everyone. He did a great job! He only licked his hands a few times 😆

9D221B22-4C15-4C78-B922-62D84996C205

Charlie was daddy’s helper so they made spaghetti together. They love to cook. And help. 

7FF04EE2-703F-468C-8B13-EC49D5DD9B9D

So. Weird.

Today was a very special day for Thomas. He was baptized today at St James! Greg was also the pastor that baptized the boys and Ben so we were very glad he was able to baptize Thomas as well!

Playtime with his assistant, Charlie 💙

I love this picture. So cute 💕

So the buddies got some puppets for Christmas and promptly put on a show for Thomas 💙💙

11B5C9F2-C5D8-4AED-A662-6CD1C1F8A222

They thought the puppets were HILARIOUS 😂

5840C08D-9449-4E17-9B70-E65CB3D2E8FE

Legos. Legos. Legos. Knees deep in legos over here. Tucker loves him some legos. He will tell you what kind of lego he needs, wait patiently while you search for it, and then build it like a champ following the directions word for word. He just needs an assistant you see.

10A90969-41CF-4213-B010-0C6360753B8A

Charlie likes to build as well. He does not like to follow the directions-he likes to do it his own way. (Story of his life. Comes by it honest, though. I don’t really care for instructions myself.😐 I cannot begin to tell you how many recipes/toy assemblies I have jacked up because of this.) He also will (impatiently) wait while you search. But his favorite part is the destruction. Always has been.  We spent a good hour on this motorcycle and it probably lasted in tact an hour or less. He just can’t stand it.

Sorry for the really short blog post. This was a crazy work week and we rounded it off with a stomach virus. 😐

6DBA92BF-2D37-4EDC-9414-10486B3AE791

This little man is 3 months old this week!!!! I am absolutely, 100% in love with him. I think he feels the same 🤗 He loves to be held, to eat, his paci!!!,  sweet talk, to talk back, baths, his brothers and his mommy and daddy.
