Happy 3rd Birthday Thompson!

Wow! I can't believe that my baby boy is 3 years old.

As many of you know, Thompson decided that he wanted to come into the world at a Razorback football game! It was pretty embarrasing, but luckily he waited til the next morning to make his grand entrance!


You have brought so much joy into our lives. You are such a happy kid. You love going up and talking to anyone and everyone. Like your Nana, you have never met a stranger!

You are such a great big brother. You are never foul towards your brother and are so protective over Brycen. You are always helping me with anything I need and are quick to tell me if I am doing something wrong. (You must get that from me!) :)

You are a talker. Plain and simple. You talk and act like you are 10 years old. You also like to think you are as big as a 10 year old too. Many times a day, I have to remind you have to listen to me because I am the momma. Your reply usually is "And you listen to me because I am the BOY!" Yes, yes you are.

Oh, Thompson! You have just a sweet spirit. Yes, you can test my limits, but most of the time you come up to me and give me sugar, or a hug, or tell me that you love me. It melts my heart. I owe it to you, little man, for making me the person I am today. Because of you, I want to make sure that you know that you are always loved and taken care of. Even when your daddy is threatening to kick you out of the house when you turn 18, just know that your momma is there to make sure that you will always have a place to stay and we can kick daddy out together ;)

I love you Thompson Lee! You are the coolest 3 year old I know!

Your stats:

Height- 37 inches
Weight- 29.5 pounds
Clothes- 3T in shirts and jeans, 18 months - 24 months in shorts (You are a skinny mini!)
Shoes- 9

You are a picky eater. You love chicken nuggets, macaroni and cheese, waffles, yogurts, raisins, and pudding. You are a sweets eater. You don't eat much, but when you are hungry-- watch out!!

You still sleep 12 hours a night and take a 2-3 hour nap.

You love to watch movies. Toy Story, Diego and Dora, and anything on Nick Jr and Disney are your faves! You love playing with trains, airplanes, cars, and action figures. You are such a boy!


Happy 3rd Birthday Sweet Boy!
We love you so much!!

These two songs always make me tear up and make me think about my baby.

Billy Dean's "Let Them Be Little"

So let them be little,
'Cause they're only that way for a while.
Give them hope, give 'em praise,
Give them love every day.
Let 'em cry, let 'em giggle,
Let them sleep in the middle,
Oh, but let them be little.

Brad Paisley's "Anthing Like Me"

He's gonna love me and hate me along the way
Years are gonna fly by, I already dread the day
He's gonna hug his momma, he's gonna shake my hand
He's gonna act like he cant wait to leave
But as he drives out, he'll cry his eyes out
If he's anything like me

This weekend we will have A LOT to celebrate! Thompson's turning 3 (on the 30th) so we are having his party on Sunday afternoon. And my parents and sister are coming to visit for a few days!

We are EXCITED!!!

Although we have all been sick. Yuck! I have a sinus infection, Thompson is sick again with another sinus infection, and Brycen has a cough and is teething. Robert is finally feeling better after being sick for a week.

So, we have been shopping, preparing, and making lists. I have been trying to clean the house, but find it impossible to do with a (almost) 3 year old and a 9 month old destroying it behind me. Thompson has a new thing of dumping out his big buckets of toys. I make him pick them all back up, but it literally takes 2 hours to finally get it done. That boy...

So we have ordered the cake and bought some presents! We are ready to party!
Here is the birthday boy himself with his own video message about this weekend!

Can't forget the Razorbacks, right?! Go Hogs!!

FALL is Here!!

Aren't y'all excited!!!

I know that I am! Fall is my favorite time of year! I love watching the leaves change, curling up on the couch watching movies, the crisp air, and all of the fun holidays!!

Here are some of my favorite "Fall" things...

I LOVE apple cider-- especially Starbuck's Caramel Apple Spice! Yum!

Isn't this so beautiful!

I am bound and determined to get to a pumpkin patch this year to take the boys' pictures!

Lovely Fall decor

And of course, cute kids dressed up in their Halloween costumes!

Happy Fall!

9 Months Old!

Brycen Boy, you are 9 months old now! And I can't believe it. In less than 3 months we will be celebrating your 1st birthday!

You are weighing 20 pounds now. You are wearing mostly 12 month clothes, some 6-12 and some 12-18. You are in a size 3 shoe. You are in a size 3 diaper.

You are more boy than I know what to do with! You are such a good baby, but boy do you get mad if you are hungry! You eat 4 or 5, 7-8ounce bottles. We switched you to the Enfamil AR formula and it has helped your spitting-up SO much! It's very rare for you to spit up these days! You also eat 2-4 jars of baby food a day. You have also been eating some smashed up bananas, puffs, biter biscuits, and anything else you can get your hands on! The other day I caught you with one of your brother's oreos! You were so mad when I took it away from you. Makes me laugh. :)

You are standing by yourself, but only like to when you do it yourself. If I try to make you stand, you just go limp. I know that you are going to be a strong-willed child. You also love to crawl behind the couch and hide. (Your brother showed you this trick!) You think it's a game, because you will crawl so fast going around and around the couch. Can't help but laugh. Anytime we try to catch you, you just turn the other way and try to get away from us. Sneaky, sneaky.

I can also already see the sibling rivalry between you and your brother. If he takes your toy, you scream bloody murder and then go after him to get it back. You like to take his stuff too, though. The other day Thompson was eating something and you went and just grabbed the spoon from him. Poor big brother. ;)

Brycen, we are so proud of the little boy you are turning to be. We are seeing your personality more and more each day! Love you, Brycen Boy!

Tuesday Night

Well today has been pretty low key. The boys and I got up, ran to the bank, and then went on to playgroup. Thompson LOVES playgroup and wants to go everytime we drive by the place. I have to explain to him that we only have play group on Tuesdays and that the kids aren't there. He is also that way about storytime at the library. :)

After playgroup, we made our way to Chick-fil-a. Since my diet, I have been deprived of the Chick-fil-a yumminess! I was good and just got some tenders, no waffle fries. I did get me a sweet tea though. Hello, heaven! After I let Thompson play for a bit we headed to Wal-Mart. Robert and I have been tossing around ideas of what to get Thompson for his birthday. The kid has so many toys that I hate buying him toys. Clothes probably aren't the coolest for a 3 year old. So we decided to buy him one big toy that he hopefully won't stop playing with after 2 hours. So... we found this while shopping today.

And I found this online that I know he will love!

So, Mr. Thompson-- you are all set! I also have a few clothing items that I am going to throw in there too! ;)

Tonight Robert has duty. Boo... I hate when he has duty. He has to stay there overnight and basically babysit. When he is on cycle, he has duty about every 5 days. So, when we were at Wal-Mart I grabbed some movies out of the Redbox machine. I know that Robert is going to hate missing this one.

But he might hate that I rented this without him!

So that will probably be my evening!

Oh, and today I was watching Oprah and guess who was her guests? The Judds! Yes! I LOVE The Judds! And they are going on a tour this month. I might have have had a huge school-girl grin on my face when they sang "Love Can Build a Bridge" and might have belted out a few lines with them!
