wow - can you say way behind?

So trying to think of where to start. We finished the house on circle drive. Chads step dad came and helped us finish. We were feeling pretty overwhelmed and so thankful that he came. When he was here chad found out he had a hernia so he had surgery the next day! So glad for the help that i have, because it was a very stressful time with getting the house done, 3 kids, husband to take care of and all his duties. We all made it through. we are moved into the new house. Still not organized but we are getting there.

Halloween 09 - The boys dressed up as Alvin and the chipmunks. Gary gave me the idea and I ran with it. I must say they were so dang cute!!! We went to the fall carnival and played games and the boys loved the cake walk! Then halloween night chads mom came with me and we took the boys trick or treating.

Cade was also diagnosed with thrush. Poor baby!! His mouth was horrible but we got it taken care of.

Cade is 6!! I can't believe it! What a great kid he is! He is so smart and is prob. going to be some kind of architect/engineering guy or a video game junkie. : ) He loves building things!! He got several bionicals and legos for his bday which he masters very quickly. I made him a skateboard cake and had some of his friends over for a party. It was a fast planned party (like an hour). We got cade mario kart and i must say it is addicting!! we are all hooked! it is funny because just gets frustrated when cade beats him. : ) I'm not to shabby either. Cade is very sincere. Somebody asked me one time who is the better babysitter for jude. My answer was Lane if you want to keep jude happy and laughing but Cade if you want to keep him safe.

Thanksgiving - We had thanksgiving at my house but with Glennas cooking with Rick, glenna, allyssa and her kids, and dana and her kids. It was really great food and great company. Plus it made me get busy on getting some stuff situated in the house.

For thanksgiving day we went to colorado springs to chads moms. Food was great as usual and it was a relaxing time. Jude did get sick but at least we were there where i could take care of him and the other boys taken care of by the grandparents. : ) chad and i also got to go out and do some shopping for christmas. Black friday was fun. Bill got up with me early and I got what i wanted except for my bike. We got a camera for cade and a basketball goal for lane. : ) I"m so excited!!! A few days later (after getting home ) i made a walmart trip for groceries and there in the front was the bike!! so i snatched it up!! wahoo, even got extra's on black friday - a cricket expression! so excited to use it. Happy birthday to me. : )

We have all of our christmas stuff out which i love! Rick brought over some wood and so we got to build a fire!! we have a fire burning a lot. The cashier at walmart said "i smell something like a campfire" i started laughing and said that is prob. me!!!

Cade had his christmas program last night. He made me laugh. He wanted to do everything right so his face was total concentration. Makes me wonder if that is how chad was. : ) I could see chad up there in cade.

Jude is 10 mths today!!! oh wow how time passes!!!

a little about him
-size 3 diapers
-6mth pants but 12 mth onsies
-he can make baskets with his basketball goal
-loves playing with balls
-loves getting into the cabinet and anything else he shouldn't get into. : )
-walks while holding on to things
-he has stood alone for a few seconds but then realizes it and sits down
-loves food - cheese and bananas, cereal bars
-getting better with sippy cup
-does this nod thing that is hilarious
-boucies on his butt
-still loves the kitty
-likes to look for things
-starting to become a daddys boy, he loves being around daddy
-nursing about 4 or 5 times in a 24 hr period.

He is such a funny little guy. I'm so lucky to have my boys!!

Since I wrote about the other two I should write about Lane. He is getting better on his letters at school. He really enjoys going. He has been awesome at picking up stuff that he gets out. Loves loves loves going across the street to grandpa and gigi's. I think he would stay over there all the time if I would let him. Chad taught him how to start a fire in the fireplace - of course he doesn't do the lighter part but he can build it to have it ready. : )

I'm continuing to lose weight. Had to start back on my diet and excercise. Yes i get to workout again and man have i been sore!!

Chad has healed from his surgery and i love being around him. : )

So i can't post any pictures because chad is working and it messes up with his connection but at least i'm up to date!

There has been some funny moments in the last few weeks. We were remodeling the laundry room and i really needed to get some clothes washed so we went to the furnish's house (me, lane and jude). Lane and Bryson were outside catching grasshoppers and would come in to show heidi and i their catch. Heidi missed a big catch so the boys came in to show her. She said you guys are - lane interrupts with "amazing" with the face expression of a confident boy. : ) It was really funny. She then wispers to me, "I was going to say having great teamwork".

Cade - I was dropping him off at school and I said ok Bubs have a great day at school, and he says "mom sometime I want you to walk me to my class sometime." he has always wanted to go by himself. So I said, Ok, I didn't know, I got out and we walked hand in hand to his class and he gave me a kiss at the door. : )

I was dropping Cade off and a little girl was running to their class. Of course that is a challege to beat her. Cade takes off and beats her to their door. He opens the door and lets her go first. : ) Very proud momma!!! That is def. the teachings of his daddy.

Lane has been telling Jude a lot that he loves him. sweet.

Just a few pictures from the last couple of weeks. Both big boys wanted to take a bath with Jude. My happy boy

Soooooo.... Jude turned 7 months old!! Can you believe it!!!! It has flown by! My sister in law writes what all my neice is doing by a month so I want to do that. : ) I think it is pretty nice to know.

1. Still wearing 0-3 mth shorts and pants are getting a little short so we have moved to 3-6 mth, but they are a little big.

2. NO. 2 diapers
3.He is crawling all over the place - has it mastered.
4. His favorite "play area" is the entertainment center. He thinks it is just for him.
5. He pulls himself up to standing all the time.
6. Just discovered the plants. He likes to eat the leaves - and as of last night the dirt!
7. He says dadda when he is happy. He def. has daddy melting in his hands. He says mom but only when he is upset.

8. He enjoys looking outside - especially to find the kitty.
9. Developed his first fever. He had it for 3 days and still isn't up to par. But he is getting better.
10. Loves hair!
11. Loves taking baths/showers
12. Has one of the best smiles in the world - Cade and Lane have some awesome smiles too. : )13. Has the most pathetic cry. He does have some meltdowns that just seem like he is in some major pain.14. Still love nursing him- I feed him about 8 times in a 24 hour period.
15. He loves his brothers

Lane got his 4 year old shots. He told cade that he was going to take them "like a man". And sure enough he did. The last (3 in all) shot hurt the most but he stayed strong. We walked out and he was holding his arm. I told him that we would get him some tylenol and i think ice cream would help it feel better. "YEAH!" So here is Lane with his Jr. sundae with M&ms.

Chad wanted to take a picture of us because he said we were twins. I didn't plan it, just happend.

The sold sign was finally put out in front of the new house. So of course I had to get a picture. I took a few before this one but forgot to put the card in. Jude was happy in those. : ) We got the laundry room finished except for one door. The sassins actually picked us up one yesterday when they went to lowes, so i'm hoping today i will have that painted and ready for chad to hang it. Chad has been working on the boys room. The floor is done, trim is almost up, window frame is almost finished. So today their room should be done!!! We worked on the shed yesterday. Chad hung some trim - and i painted it, fixed the door and I painted it. So we are now waiting on new skirting to go around the bottom. Then that will be done. There are a few touch ups to do but the major things are done!!!!

I have bunco at my house tomorrow. So on friday I cleaned the house and decluttered as much as I could. When chad gets done with the boys room I can finish the decluttering.

Lots and lots of picture taking lately. I have orders to do, pictures to finish and pictures to take. Very busy right now!!! I'm so thankful that I can borrow my inlaws awesome backyard!!!

Better get off, jude is asleep and now it is time for a walmart run! wahoo.

Jude and his hotrod

Here is Jude and his hotrod, not even 7 mths old and already wanting to walk!! Crazy!! hope the video works!! grrr!

Tuesday, September 1, 2009

Wow, can you say behind?! I have been pretty busy with pictures lately. I have had a senior, family, and newborn. I have been trying to get the pictures done. I'm almost caught up in time to do a dogs picture and another senior.

Big news - Lane turned 4!!! I can't believe it. As I think everyone knows Lily and Lane share a birthday. So since Lane got last years bday weekend, Lily got it this year. Aunt Sally made Lane feel very special. Thanks Aunt Sally! She and Lily made him his own cake. : ) We did it on his bday morning. It was extra special because Uncle Billy, Aunt Christa and the boys came.

Happy Birthday My sweet Lane!!!

Happy 3rd Birthday Miss Priss!!! I love you sweet pea!

Here is siblings with their kids. Yes half of the kids are mine. LOL! : ) Love my family!!

When we got home on Sunday, We did presents with daddy.

Also that night Chad told me about a house I had called about a few weeks ago. It was sold when the sign went out in the lawn. We heard the people who bought it got a great deal. Well Chad saw the sold sign was off so i called about it.

Yep We bought it. It is a remodeling job! We are pretty excited about it. Def. working hard to get our house done so we can put it on the market. Then we get to start all over. : )

Chad got Lane a rocket for his birthday so on Monday we went and shot it off. Grandpa and Gigi came to join the fun. It was really cool and would have been an awesome evening if it wasn't for the mosqitos!!

This weekend we had Lanes bday party!

Lane's rocket cake - theme monsters vs aliens

We didn't have it where I had planned but that is ok. We still had a good time. There was a huge misunderstanding on the first location.

Here are all the kids who came, plus baby jordyn who was sleeping in her mommas arms.

Do you think he is happy? : )

The kids played hard, ate ice cream and cake, opened presents, did the pinata. The kids had a blast. Thanks for everyone who came to make Lanes bday a special one. Thanks Rick and Glenna for the decorations!!

Saturday morning Beta Sigma Phi had our beginning meeting. Just wanted to share the group minus a few ladies!

Just wanted to share some snap shots. Here is Jude right before a bath. Just thought it was really cute. He LOVES bath time. When he gets in the bathroom and realizes what is fixing to happen he squils! It is really cute!
This is the first time Lane and Jude has taken a real bath together. : )

This was tonight. Jude was playing in the hallway. He is crawling up on his knees now. He does still do the army crawl. He sits up really good, loves food, and can pull him self to standing on anything that will let him. He has started walking with his "hot rod". We will be taken videos soon of this. The video camera is dead right now.

I took a picture of me blowing on Judes cheek. He has a great smile!!

Me and my baby

Cade had checked out a book yesterday from the school library about puppets. So tonight the boys made some puppets. We haven't got to do a puppet show yet because lanes will need all night for all the glue to dry! : )

The boys are doing great in school. They are awesome on their bikes. Lane has some pretty crazy crashes but he continues to get better. This weekend would have been a hospital visit if it wasn't for a bike helmet. : ( glad i wasn't there to see it happen!!

Things are crazy here trying to get the house done and life thrown in there. It is hard to stay caught up on here.There will be more pictures that i will send through shutterfly. I better go so i can get cade and lane to bed.

Here is a picture of lane and cade riding their bikes without training wheels. : )
I'm trying to think of all the things that has happend. I will start with school. The boys started school and so far it is going really well. Cade of course Loves it! Lane is liking the learning part but says no one will play with him. He says when he goes to play with them they walk away. We have been asking him what are some of the names of his classmates are. He hasn't been sad so I'm not too worried. He has learned the letter a. He is so excited about that! : ) Cade walk himself to class every morning but he always turns around and gives me a big smile and wave. This morning he blew me a kiss. When we dropped lane off he was a lovey too. Gave all of us kisses. : )

As for Jude, He is loving food!! His favorites are pears, squash, sweet potatoes, bananas. his favorite of all wagon wheels! He eats breakfast and dinner. Jude is all over the place. He is doing his army crawl but is venturing out on his knees and even did the bear crawl a little today! He loves the freedom. Of course we have to watch him more and make sure things are picked up. When I say he is all over I mean that. Today he went from the living room, to the boys room down the hallway until I picked him up. He will search for me if I don't come to him when he is crying for me. He loves paper things.

He loves water!! Loves it. We have started giving him a bath in the big tub. We put just a little water in it and he goes to town. sitting up splashing, laying on his belly, or even on his back kicking his feet. I do have videos but haven't had time to post them. He gets really excited when you start the water. He took a shower with me yesterday. Loved it!! He has been really vocal lately. Oh his new trick, when you pat his mouth he will make noises and does the "indian call". It is really cute! We went his 6 mth check up this am. He weighs 13 lbs 12.5 oz and 26 1/2 inches long! Long and skinny. I need to look up percentile. For some reason they don't tell you at this dr. office. He had to get two shots. He screamed when the needle was in. but when it was over I held him tight and it didn't take long for him to calm down.

chad had a bday. he turned 32. Work was a little stressful that day but I think we made it special. His dad took him out for lunch. We got him a wii fit, made him strawberry pies (which didn't turn out that great - i don't know - the boys pretty much did it all themselves) and we took him out to eat. it was a fun evening.

I have been taking lots of pictures!! They come in groups. I will go and not have any and then I get bombarded!! the other weekend I took sr pictures of a girl from liberal. I later found out on the way back to liberal they got in a terrible car wreck. My senior is ok bumps, bruises, scratches, but her dad was medivac to wichita. Broke his leg and crushed his ankle. I talk to my sr's sister and she said her dad had surgery on his leg and his moving it really well and was thinking that last wednesday he would have surgery on his ankle. not sure if he did or not. Pretty scary!

My friend keidi went into labor today!! I'm so excited!! Last night we had a storm and i had a feeling this morning I would find out she was in the hospital. I text her earlier and still haven't received anything back. I'm guessing Jordyn is here just haven't had time to call. I'm anxious!!!

Exciting news today

There was lots of excitement today in the Williams Household first off:

YES!! JUDE IS CRAWLING!! Chad and I looked at dates from when cade and Lane crawled. Cade was 6 1/2 mths and Lane was 5 1/2 mths. Actually on the timeline Jude crawled 5 days after Lane did!! We thought that was a pretty cool fact!


The boys finally got their training wheels off!! Cade is doing great, Lane is too but he has some practice to do. I'm so proud of them both!!!

Jude - A - Bug

My sweet Jude is growing up!!
Jude and Lane share a special bond. Lane was def. meant to be this little babies big bro!
Judes fav. sleeping position
Wahoo in the highchair


Me and my babies!

OOOHH, I have a spoon! He sure does love food!

First time in the highchair

Ready mom

Lane and Jude playing peek a boo

First real baby food - sweet potatoes
Now your talking MOM!!
I was just feeding him one meal a day - supper. Well one afternoon we all sat down to eat lunch. Jude was in his highchair. He played for a little bit and got really fussy. I got him out and couldn't get him to calm down. I realized that everytime my fork came close to him he would stop grouching. Yes, he was telling me he needed to eat! So we are doing breakfast and supper. He loves food.

He has found his toes!!

Starting to get stronger. So close to sitting on his own!!

Cade feeding Jude for the first time and Jude eating Carrots for the first time!
Lane got a turn
The boys won't be feeding him very often - MESSY!!
Jude has now eaten sweet potatoes, peas, carrots, pears. The peas were really funny to watch. He would make a yucky face and even shivered a few times. Now that he has had it more he doesn't hate them as much! : )

We recently went to Colorado and visited Granny and Peep. We had a great trip and Jude got to meet his great grandparents. Peep and Jude

Granny and Jude
Jude is also rolling and scooting all over the floor. He is trying to crawl. He will get up and rock. He doesn't sleep very much - which is difficult at times. He has realized when I leave the room. But that look on his face just melts my heart when he knows I'm going to get him. Rick said this weekend that no matter how made Jude is he can always squeeze out a smile. He smiles so much. : ) He is still nursing really well, except the little stinker likes to pinch! OUCH!! He is always moving (except when sleeping). He is such a blessing to not only me but the whole family. Actually he brings smiles to everyone who meets him.
