3 Months Already?

This little guy isn't so little. He has changed and grown a ton in his short three months. He was born weighing 8lb12oz, and weighs 15lb10oz now. He has literally doubled in size. He loves his momma already and calms down immediately when I pick him up. All you have to do is look at him and he will give you the biggest grin with the biggest little mouth. It's so cute! We love him to pieces! He is growing too fast. Slow down so I can savor it :)Photobucket

Happy Memorial Day

Brian had to work today bummer :( so I had a BBQ at our house. Coreen came and brought her boys. And my Mom came and brought her pool!
 The kids had fun playing with their cousins. Grandma had fun with her newest grandson. Tummies got full and babies got tired. All in all, it was a fun day!
Crew thought it was too much with all the kids in the pool, he would only go near it when only a few were in it!

Today was crazy hair day at school. Hannah got the faux-hawk, multicolored. Gage shaved his head to look like an old man. And Hayley got a head full of crazy with multiple things going on. They all had fun participating! Photobucket

Really? Already?!

Crew has insisted on feeding himself lately. If I try to feed him he screams and throws his head to the side. So I gave in and let the boy feed himself. I think I need to come up with some cleaner finger foods for him. :) But he sure had fun! Photobucket

Explore NM

This past weekend we took the kids up to Soda Dam for the day. They had fun climbing on the rocks and playing in the mountains. Almost makes me want to go camping :) Photobucket

Great Grandparents

This morning I went out to Edgewood to visit my mom.
 It was a quick visit but well worth it!
My awesome Mom even gave me a pedicure while I was there :)
(my all-terrain feet needed some attention, thanks Mom!)
My Grandparents came by to see my boys so I had to get a picture with our newest addition.
Traq was hungry by the time I got to the picture,
he's normally very happy and chill.

Rock & Roll

Hayley has had fun this year with her school choir group. They put on a little musical called, "Rock & Roll Forever" and Hayley had a special part in "Surfin' USA" She did awesome! She was so animated and you could tell that she really enjoyed herself. We are so proud of her and her beautiful voice! Photobucket Photobucket Photobucket

Babysitting Already?!

We just had to document it. Hayley has officially started babysitting! Only for us of course, Brian and I (and Traq) went to dinner tonight and left Hayley to babysit her siblings. She did great! We are proud of how responsible she is and that we can feel comfortable leaving her . She is a great big sister! Photobucket

What do you think?

Am I finally going to get a red head?
I was just looking through these pics I took last week
and I couldn't believe it, it looks like I might have a redhead.
It's hard to tell though, 
and his hair doesn't look this red in person,
so I guess we'll have to wait and see.

Our Perfect Baby Boy!

I'm finally getting around to posting some pics of our new little man!
He was born Monday, March 12 and weighed in at 8lbs. 12oz.
We named him Traq Waylon Victor and he is absolutely PERFECT!

After we'd been home for a few days,
Bode asked me, "How come we get all the cute babies?"
I don't know, but we sure are blessed!

My big boy turned eight last month and was baptized!
Doesn't he look so handsome in his new suit?

More Crew Pictures

I finally got a chance to go out and take Crew's birthday pictures today!
I had to order the large balloons online,
so they weren't here for his birthday.
Then the throw-ups started going around.
Then  it was windy!
So today was the day!
I love how they turned out.
What a cute little man I have!

Crew's Birthday

 My baby turned a year old yesterday!
How can that be?
They grow so slow inside my tummy, 
then they come out and time flies by!
Look how he's grown!

Picture Chaos!

Does anyone else have this hard a time trying to take pictures?
Maybe having eight kids under the age of nine has something to do with it!
Aren't they a good lookin' bunch of cousins?
And one smokin' hot proud Grandma!

Trying for a Christmas Card

After the last attempt and having to many of the pictures not turn out,
I borrowed a camera from a good friend to try to get a picture for the Christmas card.
These all didn't make the cut,
the kids are becoming less and less tolerant of my picture taking.
I did manage to get one for the card, so that is done!
Can you say Yay!?

Camera Testing

 I took the kids out on the mesa trying to test my camera.
It's been acting pretty funny lately, giving me blurry pictures or not wanting to shoot at all.
I was able to catch these though out of nearly 100 pictures shot.
I love my kiddos and can't believe how fast they're growing.
They are all so much fun at the stages they're at though.
I can't believe we have another one on the way!

This is an actual conversation I had with Bode only moments ago as I was clipping his fingernails after his bath...
Bode (as he's pulling his hand from mine) "Don't clip my fingernails! I like them long!"
Me (knowing how the boy likes to pick his nose) "I know why you want them long, so you can pick your nose."
Bode (with a little chuckle) "I like to pick my nose. And eat my buggers when I'm hungry."
Me (totally grossed out at this point, I knew he picked not ate) "Bode, just tell me when you get hungry. I'll feed you food, not buggers."
Bode "But when I don't like the food, then I like the buggers."

So obviously I need to make him eat dinner, even when he doesn't like the food.
Otherwise he's going to fill up on BUGGERS!

I have the neatest friends!

My talented friend Nicole watched a few of my kiddos
for a few hours this morning while I ran errands.
This is how they looked when I returned!

(a peacock, chosen by Hayley)
(a butterfly of course)
(and a dragon)
I love it! 
And she did all this while watching eight kids!
Pretty amazing! Thanks Nicole!
