It worked for me!!

Just a note, in case you are having issues as well.

As most of you know I'm a mother of a 5 month old and still attempting to nurse.... without any supplements. I had no problems with my first child, but number two was a different story. By the time Cade was four months old my milk was gone and we were on formula... Nothing is wrong with formula, but my personal preference is nursing. Anyways, this time around I was having some trouble with supply and let down (all you nursing moms know what I'm talking about) and someone suggested this, MOTHER'S MILK. It is an herbal tea that helps promote good lactation and sure enough... it has made a huge difference. I can tell a difference if I go two or more days without a cup or two. And it doesn't taste half bad...especially on a chilly day.

Brennan has a new trick.

Why is this underlining?
Anyways, I have showed you all the new, wonderful, and funny things that the older brothers are doing, so here is what the littlest brother is doing.
That is right that is air under that belly. Brennan is now getting into army crawl position. He is getting so big and strong, I can't believe it.

He loves to kick his feet around in the ball pit, it makes fun noises and the balls go everywhere.

Now that you have seen baby pictures of William and Cade in their Photo montages. Who do you think he looks like?


Cade has been so busy lately... he is learning to run faster and keep up with the big kids. And it is taking his toll. This day the kids played outside all day and while I was cooking dinner I put on a movie. 10 minutes later this is what I found on the couch. I put the pillow there to try to get him to lay down, but snapped the picture first. Night Night Cade.
Cuddlin with Mommy.

Jan. 10th we met Michaels parents in SanAntonio for th day. The boys got to experience Build a Bear workshop. William's T-rex is named Furry and has a guitar, Cade's T-rex is named Roar and has a blue Tshirt. They have loved on those silly dinos for the last two weeks. Money well spent and a memory made.

The Birthday Parties!

Ok, so for whatever reason, Blogger wont let me move the photos, so they are really out of order.. sorry.

This year we opted to start having family only birthdays. We really enjoyed our time with the brothers, here we are at Cade's birthday. All the Sonic's around here have playgrounds, here is Cade going down the gigantic twisty slide, he was so brave.

Here is Sweet Cade with his Elmo Cake, We LOVE Elmo!!

Year 4 is a big birthday to William, he is still telling everyone that we see that he is 4 years old.
This Picture is at Chuck E Cheese during William's Birthday. We ate Pizza and cake, played games, opened gifts, and had a blast.

William Blowing out his candles, check out those cheeks.

William and his Camo, Transformer Cake.... The tank transforms into a robot, it was his favorite gift recieved.

Brennan was at both of these parties, but spent the majority of his time in the stroller asleep.

Out of the Mouths of Babes.

At our church we have Little Bit school (2 yrs - 4 yrs) run by a good friend Aunt Billie and Northwest Christian Academy (Kinder - First) run by the boys surrogate grandmother Aunt Nanny. Anyways one of the moms cooks on Tues and Thursdays as a fund raiser for the school, and today Michael, the brothers and I went for Hamburger day(they were fantastic hamburgers!!!). Anyways, we walk into the gym where all the kids from the schools were sitting waiting for their food, and William froze up a little, he has never been to school before.
I picked him up and Aunt Billy walk over and said what's wrong.

William's response was priceless, "I am just jealous of all the other kids".

I guess he is used to not having to share Aunt Billy or Aunt Nanny, and I'm not sure he knows what Jealous means, however; I guess we will do our next Bible lesson on Jealousy.

Happy Birthday William!!

Happy 4th Birthday William!!

Our Sweet William Turned 4 years old on January 7th, and I wanted to share a few special things about him.
1. His news bulletin.... "Hey you know what?" he says this to everyone and then says the most important thing to him that day... "We went to my Granny and Papa's house" or "I have a new bike" or "My brother threw up yesterday". You never know what he is going to say.

2. His sweet big brother actions, like talking to Cade and Brennan if they are upset.

3. His love of reading. He is completely content to read for hours, by himself or with help.

4. The excitement and joy that come over his face when he has finally accomplishes something he has been trying forever... I love to watch him learn.

I know I just did a photo montage not too long ago, but it's his birthday... here are a few shots of William over the last 4 years.
William Has always loved reading books here he is at 10 months.
Don't you just love these cheeks. He has the most beautiful blue eyes and sweet dimples.

Williams 2nd Easter in Longview at Aunt Carol and Uncle Steves house. We had such a wonderful day that day and William loved hunting for eggs. William 16 months old.

William loves his guitar... infact he wouldn't put it down this day, He got right out of the tub and kept on playing. William 2 years 4 months old.

At the San Antonio Zoo. Wearing his daddy's hat. 3 years old.

Birthday pics to come soon... My boys are so big I can't believe it!

A few of the things that make Cade Special!

1. His ornery ways, he has perfect timing... and can always get you laughing
2. Always looking out for his brothers.
