Summing up Garrett in one phrase....

"Mommy, you're pissing me off." Nough said. Judge me if you will, I'll take full credit for that lovely little phrase, my bad. Bad mom moment....


I know I'm lame...but here are some pics from my Wyatt's 5th birthday

So one of the reasons I have taken SO long to do this post is because I'm having a hard time with my oldest baby being 5! Isn't it crazy to think that I have a 5 year old, who will be going to kindergarten in just a few short months! KINDERGARTEN!!!! AHHHHHHh! I can hardly believe that 5 years ago I became a mother for the very first time....It wasn't an easy pregnancy, and we had some pre-term labor, but we got him to an acceptable baking time, and they let me just go ahead and have him, it also helped that my water broke, and that he was in a little distress...not too much distress mind you, but enough to let them keep me, which was a good thing or I'd have been back an hour later when my water broke. There I was just 20 years old, the most scared and excited I've EVER been in my life, waiting, waiting for the miracle that is my Wyatt. Labor was hard, after 13hrs dilated to a 2 and the pit turned up as high as it would go they FINALLY gave me the blessed epidural, and just 5 short hours later there he was...perfect, and sweet...just one of the miracles my Father in Heaven has blessed me with, but I'll never forget that first time. Weighed and measured, cleaned and oogled by all those there, they finally gave me that sweet little spirit, and do you know what he did the first time I held him? He looked right into my eyes, and smiled! No joke! I held him and said "hello my son", and he looked right in my eyes and smiled at me! I guess it was a prediction of how in later months and years he would become, a sweet, happy, loving little mama's boy, through and through! The years have not always been easy. I am still learning daily on what it means to really be a mother, but Wyatt, it is you who has always made me want to be a mother a million times over! So before I get too mooshie, yes I am bawling my little eyes out as I write this, I'll give you all a little taste of what it means to be Wyatt:
-Wyatt LOVES to learn! He has always been an early at things I think should take longer, like writing, reading, knowing his letters, shapes, numbers, our phone number, the state we live in our hometown, ect...
-Wyatt is a very loving and attentive older brother...to Jett! Ha ha! He loves Garrett very much too, and they are very much best friends, but since they are so close in age, they are ALWAYS testing each others limits and boundaries!
-Wyatt's favorite food is Mac and Cheese
-He WILL NOT eat a hot dog, even if I payed him, he still wouldn't eat it!
-Wyatt is a very tenderhearted little boy, and if someone is upset or crying he is the first to be there asking what's wrong.
-Wyatt never gets sick, I can count on one hand and probably on 3 fingers the number of times he's ever been sick in his life!
-Wyatt is one tall little boy! He is coming in at 47in tall and 50lbs even these days, and wears a size 6/7 in little boys, and a size 13 shoe!
-Wyatt LOVES me to read with him, he would spend all day on my lap reading if I'd let him!
-Wyatt is a VERY picky eater, but I can't complain too much because I am to, so I guess I deserve it!
-Wyatt has a love for old cartoons, like bugs bunny, and stuff like felix the cat, or popeye, in fact he would rather watch the videos we have of them, then watch the cartoons that are on tv right now.
-Wyatt is mom's big helper and best bud, and follows me EVERYWHERE I go!
-Wyatt loves Ninja Turtles and Transformers
-Wyatt can write his name, both his brothers names, and pretty much any word I put in front of him. The words he knows from memory are Wyatt, Garrett, Jett, Mom, Dad, and I love you!
I guess I could just keep going on and on about my Wyatt, I could fill a book or ten on how special he is and how much we love him, and all the things he does awesome! I just want to finish up with saying that I love my sweet Wyatt more than he can ever imagine, and becoming his mother has changed my life so much! He has made me better in more ways than I can ever thank him for, and I am SO grateful that I lived my life in such a way that Heavenly Father blessed me with him. So Happy 5 years Wyatt, you are so special, and I'm SO glad you're ours!

Alright, so I'll come out of my self imposed blog exile and post what's been going on...(long enough title for ya?)

Well, I've decided it's time to update the blog, I have no idea how many of you out there in blogland actually read or care about this blog, but oh well! So we have had quite a lot going on here in our home over the last few months! We are going to be signing Wyatt up for Kindergarten tomorrow, and I am having a wee bit of anxiety and A LOT of emotion about the whole ordeal! I can't believe that my bubba is old enough to go to Kindergarten! I'll tell you what though, it makes me feel entirely TOO old and entirely TOO young to have a boy old enough to go to school. I'm sure going to miss my big helper boy! So here's the scoop on Wyatt! He is reading a little, knows all his shapes, colors, letters, numbers, animals, yada yada yada! I feel he is just a little too smart for his britches sometimes! He is still growing like a weed, and I can hardly keep up with cloths and shoes for the boy! He wears a size 6/7 in pants and shirts, and a size 13 shoe! Just remember people, he is only 4! He'll turn 5 the end of May. He loves math and science. And is my complete emotional clone! He is nurturing, loving, sensitive, sweet, and extremely protective. Unfortunately, he also has the temper of a raging bull. Like I said, my complete emotional clone! Hey, I gotta take what I can get here, since they all look nothing like me, there's gotta be something of me in them, right?!
Garrett is also learning and growing! He just had his 3rd birthday, and that was incredibly hard for his mama! He is really going to miss Wyatt when he goes to school, and is already telling me that he wants to go to Kindergarten too! I think he is going to feel a little abandoned when Wyatt's gone during the day. This will be the first time that either of them can remember, that the other will be gone for a few hours a day. They have never been without each other. Garrett is now starting to learn his shapes and letters, but has his colors down pat! He actually knows most of his shapes, but gets impatient with me about his letters! He is the complete opposite of his older brother in the sense of sitting quietly and coloring or "reading" a book, and would much rather be throwing a ball, digging in the dirt, wrestling and of course his favorite..."break dancing"! I have NO idea where he picked it up, but it's hilarious, and loves to do it for an audience! It is the highlight of my day when he will just sit still on my lap for a little and tell me he loves me and gives me his precious kisses!
Jett is also growing like a little weed! He is now 7 months old, and is the apple of our eye! Well, the smallest of the apples anyway! :) He is just a tiny thing, NOT! He is 20lbs, and wearing a lot of 12 month sized clothing! He has some chubs, but he is REALLY long coming in at a mere 29 inches! He has two teeth, and even though Ryan will NEVER admit it to anyone, Jett occasionally says "mama"! He can roll over, but mostly chooses not to because his brothers will give him anything he wants, so who wants to spoil a sweet set-up like that?! Smart kid! He can also sit up, and at the mo is sick as a dog! Poor baby! He LOVES all food, and is the happiest baby on earth! Well at least for us! He has already had his first haircut, and sadly with it went his black locks! Made me cry! He is the spitting image of Garrett, but has a much softer temperament, Garrett is quite the spitfire! We love him SO much and wouldn't trade him for anything!
Ryan and I are doing great! Ryan has been working SO hard lately so he hasn't been home much the last few weeks, but he trys to do as much at home as he can while he's here, and he spends all the spare time he has with the boys and me! Right now we are just waiting on our new carpet to come in and then they'll have it installed within a week or so after that! I am STOKED!!!! We need it SO bad, and I can hardly wait! Other than that, not much has been going on!
