Creed:24 weeks

Creed: 24 weeks! Son, I'm not gonna lie...this last week has been NUTS! Your sisters have dance, gymnastics, 2 different softball practices and 2 different games and mommy is stretched thin!
 But are the most calmest, go with the flow baby ever! You don't fuss when one bit (unless it's time to eat)! You are happy all the time and love people! I will holding you and talking to some total stranger and you will reach for them to hold you and of course they just LOVE it and snatch right up! The good Lord sure knew what he was doing when he gave us you! Sunday was so busy I never had time to really take your weekly pictures! But Ms.Kelly sent me this one from the church nursery to let mommy know it was time to eat! It just cracked me up to see your smiling face pop up on my phone in the middle of services! 

 Sunday after church was lunch time at Nana and Poppas!
 You are just a happy little dude!
 And boy oh boy are you trying your hardest to crawl! YIKES....I just don't know if mommy is ready for you to be so mobile yet!
 After lunch was MC's ball practice. During her practice we hit the trial with Kinley for a nice spring time walk! You loved it.......all the noises, the breeze, the soaked it all in!
 Lats Monday we started you on oatmeal at bed were not so sure about it at first!
The 2nd and 3rd bites didnt' go so well either,lol But after a few more bites you were hooked!
By Tuesday night you were a PRO! You even grabbed the spoon and tried to feed yourself.....
which led to this............
which led to an immediate bath!
My little messy monster you crack me up!
And now that you are sitting up so well you love to sit up in the tub!
You splash your hands like crazy and just about drown mommy,lol!

Well like I's softball season so in between the sisters games we hit up Subway with Papa!
Love these silly smiling girls..........and Creed.....he was over it and was working on getting that.....
passy in his mouth!
And then you got to try green beans!
OH LOVED them! You kept saying.....ummmm ummmmm ummmm!

And of course MC wanted to help feed ya!

She is the best big sister!
And she is head over heals in love you little fella!

Creed/Creeda:23 weeks

4-12-15: My little love bug you are 23 weeks old! You are sitting up so much better this week. You are getting up on your hands and knees and rocking back and forth; you even lunge a few times and wipe out on your sweet little face! Your sisters are MORE than ready for you to get mobile but this mom really isn't! This week you decided you should nurse every 2 hours ALLLL night long and it was exhausting to say the least! We are gonna start cereal this coming week and I hope and pray that keeps your belly full and you sleep ALLLL night long! 

 Look at you sitting up in the rocking chair like a big boy!
 Oh that smile.....
 I could just eat you up sweet boy!

 You reach for EVERYTHING these days!
 And these big sisters.......well they are all yours buddy! You have them...hook line and sinker!
 I am so not sure what I did in life to deserve these three but I will be eternally thankfully I was chosen to be their mommy!
 You are loving the musical top Papa Barry got you!

 This last week has been beautiful! We have spent lost of time outside and on the trampoline which you LOVE!
 My two handsome fellows just hanging out at Kinley's ball practice!
 Your daycare sent me these pictures last week and it just made me happy to see you so happy at school!

 My big cheeser!
 And guess what.....we finally got your newborn pictures framed and daddy hung them up this weekend! So you are officially on wall and part of the family,lol!
 And you you have two big sisters who LOVE to play dressup......this is just bound to happen!
 You were so tickled at all of us laughing at you........okay not all of us..,,,, Daddy didn't much care for it so he rolled over and refused to par take in the laughter!
 You barely had enough hair to hold that silly bow in! (See daddy still turned over back there,lol!)
 I would take a HOUSE full of girls and been one happy momma; but the Lord decided to give us a boy and I am so glad he did! You have opened my heart to boy lovins and it's amazing to say the least!
 I think I laughed and carried on as much as your sisters did,lol!
Oh and MC had a blast with you.......she said.......We will call her Creeda!  We love you Creeda but I am sure this will be the only time daddy lets us have this kind of fun with you,lol!

Easter 2015 and 22 weeks

Easter 2015: Gosh it's crazy that April is already here and Easter has come and gone! Crazy to think this year is almost half off already! MC and Kinley were beyond excited about the Easter Bunny coming! The had a big list of things they wanted the bunny to bring them; so we had to have a reminder talk about what the true meaning of Easter is and that the bunny doesn't own a sleigh,lol! Right before bed MC is there really an Easter bunny? Uhhhhh the question.....I will never lie when questioned so I chose not to answer; I just turn the question to her. ...I don't know MC what do you think? After a pause I get......I just don't think its possible mom! Kinley was very close by so I said......we will discuss it later! Well later never came and she never asked again and she was pumped when she saw her basked on Easter morning so maybe we are in the clear for now. No the bunny has nothing to do the the Resurrection of Jesus Christ and I am okay with her knowing the truth..... it's just the loss of childhood innocence that goes along with knowing the truth and that hurts this mommy's heart! This mommy who would love to keep her babies little and
 protected forever and ever! 

The baskets all lined up and filled!!
MC's stash.......and sadly she didn't get the $5000 she asked for,lol!
Kinley's stash!
And baby boy's first Easter basket that contained his first truck! This mommy MAY have cried like the world's biggest baby when she put it in her basket at Wal Mart!
Oh the bunny got her the American girl doll glasses she wanted!!!
More AGD glasses and headbands..........which we are now addicted to!
After the girls tore threw their stuff than couldn't' wait to wake brother
so they could tear into his stash!
Oh and he loved all his fun new toys and sippy cup!!!
Then it was time to get dressed for Easter Church and Creed finally got to show off the SUPER cute chevron Aunt Paige got him!!!! MC took this picture with her Ipod and I just love the tint/shade she used......just makes the picture even more precious! Its still very weird when your kid says.....I'll text you the picture strange! 
My girls about to freeze their hind ends off because of course in Arkansas it's 85 the day before you wake up to a high of 55!

Just shocks me to see how grown they look!

And this is what you get when your try to "get a few pictures" in before the baby has a full tummy!

He wanted out of there immediately! lol!
Then after a quick happy little man was back!
Creed you are 22 weeks old! And since life is a little too crazy these days for this mommy........this will have to be your 22 week post!
Yay we started with a good pitcture!

But if ya think picture of one or two kids is hard........three is almost impossible.....there is ALWAYS an issue with someone at all times!!!!!

MCs eyes closed..........
Kinley's eyes closed.......

both girls with eyes closed
Kinley's mouth WIDE open
Oh....both girls eyes opened.......but brother over pictures........uhh
Back to MCs eyes closed
YAY Creed looked at camera..........uhhh but other girls looking at him!
and so on.......
and so forth............

but finally after 100 pictures another good one shows up! YAY!!!

Oh and then this sweetness occurs!!!!!!
And little sister sneaks in a kiss and melts her mommy like a chocolate bunny!

And they decide to do this and mommy's mascara....well it's a thing of the past!
Sweet Creed! Looking so intently at the camera

and then over he goes,lol!
This just cracks me up!
who me?!?!
wow I found my toe!

Im gonna get that camera mommy!

Hey.....there's that shiny fire truck I got.......been wondering where that went!
And over he goes again!
After church it was time for Easter lunch at Nana's!

such pure sweetness!

Time to hunt those eggs!
Maybe next year this little one will join the hunting fun but
for this year he just hung out with his daddy!
And off they went!

 MC was to busy hunting to stop for pictures!
 But little sister.......she has plenty of time to hit a few poses for mommy!

 And little brother had a ball chewing on a plastic Easter egg!

For a bedtime snack we again talked about the real meaning of Easter and how we are saved by HIS amazing grace! And we finished our talk off by decorating our "No bunny loves ya like Jesus" cookies!
Happy Easter!
