My Cup Runneth Over

As the month of February is wrapping up, I have had a lot on my mind. One of my best friends just got some great, long awaited news, that her baby is going to be fine. I have been praying for her all month long and it was such a blessing to get that phone call and hear that the baby looks great!! Plus, she came over and we celebrated with lunch and to top it off, Chocolate Trinity Ice Cream!! YUM!! I have not prayed so diligently over someone/something is a long time. I wanted her to have this baby so bad and my heart is just so happy for her and her family. What a great addition this sweet baby will be to our group! Since I have had her on my mind lately, it was making me think about my own family and how blessed I am. WOW am I blessed!! The Lord has given me an amazing husband that fears the Him, two of the sweetest boys that I am head over heels for and wonderful friends and the most supportive family in the world. Those thoughts have led to the fact that my sweet Cade is going to be 2 in a month. TWO YEARS OLD!! As I say it, I myself cant even wrap my mind around it. I have been going back and looking at pictures of him as a baby and crawler and it makes me want to cry. My baby is turning into a little boy. He even has lost his baby look and is ALL boy!! Not to mention that he is all about sports and goes nonstop. I just look at him and cant believe that God entrusted him in our care. I am so thankful he did. I have so much fun with Cade. He is full of life and keeps me on my toes. He loves us so much and loves "his baby" (Matthew) so much.
I am working on his post for his birthday but I wouldnt be surprised if March holds lots of pictures of my sweet Cade doing the things he loves. One thing I am glad about..I take lots of pictures and its so fun to look back and remember how much fun we have had.

Matthew, or known to us as Peanut, is a little under the weather. He caught the cold Cade had but not as bad since he is nursing and getting that good milk. He is still the sweetest baby ever and I am in love big time with this boy. I dont know how I could have ever thought that loving two boys would be hard because my love is so much bigger than before. Peanut sleeps great and is happy most of his days. He has been such a great addition to our family. He had his 2 month check up and got those nasty shots. He had never cried so hard. He weighed 10 pounds and is in the 18% for weight and 91% for height. He smiles all the time at us and has started to even smile at his crazy big brother.

Since Cade and Matthew have been a tad sick..we have been spending more time at home than usual. Our home is not very big so I was having to get really creative to keep Cade from climbing the walls, literally. So I built a tent in our den but Cade had to have the basketball goal in the tent to make it something he would hang in.

Peanut likes to sit up now so I tried the bumbo and he liked it. He didnt last long but still! Pretty good for 2 months.

Since MJ did the bumbo, Cade had to show mommy too! Makes him look really big huh?!

I am so excited that March is here as of tomorrow. We have so much fun stuff happening this month. My brother and his fiance come in town, St. Patrick's Day (family stuff), my childhood best friend is getting married and to top it all off.....We are flying to Indiana for my brothers wedding!!! We are so excited and since Cade loves planes, we are thinking this will be so much fun for him.
As for my title of this post...My cup runneth over!!! I am so thankful and blessed....BEYOND MEASURE!!!

Happy Valentine's Day

This is how me and the boys are spending our Valentine's Day... at home!! Cade is pretending to be a fireman and he is the cutest one I have ever seen!! He has been playing this everyday since we went to the Fire Museum.

And Matthew is playing on his play mat for the first time. He LOVED it and after playing on it for about 10 minutes, he was so tired that he fell asleep! He is such a sweet boy!!

Happy Valentine's Day.... Love Cade and Matthew

My Peanut

Matthew is known as peanut around our house. And I cant believe that tomorrow he will be 2 months old. Gosh time flies!!! We go to the doctor on Thursday so I am excited to see how much he weighs and has grown. He is long but still skinny! We also have a Valentine's party on Wednesday so I will update pictures of that too I'm sure. I will update on Thursday hopefully with his stats and I will share about my sweet peanut...

We are still here...

Cade now loves to climb the stairs and yes we let him most of the time! He was having fun...
Yes he is wearing his Christmas PJ's in February...they still fit so why not :)

MJ is my little peanut!!

He still likes to keep his fists close! Watch out...

We went to the Fire Museum. They gave all the kids hats. It was fun for the kids...

Super Bowl Party at the Nelson's

My little baller...just up from his nap and goes for a ball

Things are SO busy here! If the boys are sleeping for their naps, I am either sleeping or cleaning. But we are still here and having a ball as a family of 4! I really thought having MJ was going to slow us down, he hasnt, we are still on the go. He is the BEST baby and so easy going. I guess that comes with being the second child but seriously this is SO much easier than I thought it was going to be. And not to mention how in love I am with my peanut. Even his little cry is the sweetest thing. We all love him to pieces and Cade is smitten as well. He hugs, kisses and constantly checks on his "baby." We are working on him calling him Matthew but we arent there yet. We have some fun things coming up in the next month. Two weddings that I am in and one which will lead us to Indiana. I am excited and it will be the first time the boys will be on a plane. Either our fellow passengers will hate us or not even know we are there. Either way it should be an adventure. I think Cade will love it and he and Matt will be fighting over the window seat Im sure. Oh and did I mention that my sweet boy will be turning 2 next month?? Oh my gosh I cant believe how fast time flies...
