Luke Bailey is 3!!!

Luke Bailey! You're 3!

What a fun 3 years it has been. You add so much laughter, insight, fun, excitement and overall greatness to our life and our family. I love you so much!

We celebrated today with a Toy Story themed birthday party. Luke attended the party as Buzz Lightyear, as you can see in the picture. We gave him this costume for his birthday this morning at 9 am, and except for nap, it has been in place!

It was so precious. All day, he was in character. For example:

Luke asked "Mommy, where is Daddy?"
Me: "He's at church"
Luke: "No, you say 'Buzz Lightyear, daddy's at church'"

Or, if anyone called him Luke, he would be quick to remind them "you can call me Buzz Lightyear"

He had way too much birthday cake, played with every toy he owns with all of the kids who came over and finally fell asleep after singing songs and talking to himself for an hour. I guess he was worked up and had a good day and didn't want to sleep. That's fun. That was my goal.

I asked Luke if he could stay little for a while longer and he said "Naw, silly. I need to be as big as daddy"

FTR, yesterday he announced that when he grow up he wants to be a "green daddy". I think that is a very big deal, as green is his favorite color and that adds to the compliment that daddy is his favorite person.

I love you little man. If you must grow up will you please still always say "Oh! I most-tagot!" (I almost forgot) and call masks "mask-ez"?

Check out my little men!
Now tell me if you can believe THIS! Luke will be 3 this month and Judah and Micah are 7 months old.

We are having fun at our house. Luke is such a big boy. He talks in very grown up language using phrases such as "actually, mommy, its called a jeep" and "as a matter of fact, I enjoyed it", but he still includes his little cute things like "Mommy, did you know that the airplanes go to the airporch? They do."

Luke, you make us laugh every single day and you are so much fun. You are so observant and clever that we've taught you what those words mean because we use them so often when we talk about you.

Judah and Micah are growing up! This is the month that they began waving and sitting up. Micah is very good at using the sign for "all done!" and Micah is also cocking his head to the side just to make us laugh. Already a jokester. Judah's wave is so intentional and charming. He is happiest just sitting in someone's lap. Both boys will giggle for apparently no reason, and think that Luke is the funniest thing. I have to agree with that.

Judah, you are so quick to smile. I love when you scream for no reason and then laugh like you are telling a good joke. You love to cuddle. You are also very impressively saying "hey" while you wave. I think that counts as a first word, don't you?

Micah, you love a good game. Peek-a-boo and tickling get you every time. You are quick to laugh and especially think Luke is funny.

Joseph is working on a little trick:
No need to call the authorities. Joseph is skilled in baby holding, yes, but he is also skilled in Photoshop.

How about a new picture of my THREE boys!

Of course, though this was taken just a few weeks ago, it is already outdated as they change so quickly. The babies are 12 weeks old today. VERY hard to believe. Luke is now 2 1/2 and he'll tell you so. Its so cute. I need to post all the cute things he is saying these days. He is a TALKER! and a funny one at that. LOOOOOOVE that kid. Well, heck, I love all THREE. I keep putting THREE in capital letters because I can hardly believe I have THREE kids. Whew. crazy.

Well here's the picture. For your informational pleasure, I have included a key:

top- Judah
middle- Luke
bottom- Micah

A New Friend

Sonic has a fun toy this week for the kids meal. A Bug Dome! Joseph took Luke to the park for an afternoon of play and when they came back home, a new resident had moved into the Bug Dome. It is a fire ant. Luke named him Joe Bob.

It's 3 days later and poor Joe Bob is already forgotten, but he sure was loved for a few hours! Speaking of...I should probably go set him free. FAR from my house of course. His friends are NOT invited.

Before and After

The close up at 12 weeks:

fully cooked!

We are having a blast with our new baby boys. They are SUCH good babies and so sweet. I can't believe they will be 9 weeks old on Thursday. Where does the time go? ( I think it goes somewhere involving the middle of the night and no sleep..the dimension of reality I've been in for a while now!)
I would like to give props though, to the boys who let me sleep quite a bit last night. Holla! (is that still cool? I thought not.)

This was fun. we should meet here again.

My 25 things

So the thing on Facebook right now is to write 25 random things about yourself and tag your friends to write their own. You know, you've all done it before. So, I finally complied and thought it could double as a blog entry, as I am always behind on those! So here goes...

The RULES: Once you've been tagged, you are supposed to write a note with 25 random things, facts, habits, or goals about you. At the end, choose 25 people to be tagged. You have to tag the person who tagged you. If I tagged you, it's because I want to know more about you.

1. I get in breakfast-ruts for weeks to months. This is where I eat the exact same thing everyday, never wavering until the next rut begins.

2. my current breakfast rut is a fried egg on toast with I can't believe its not butter Spray.

3. I'm like an addict with Diet Dr Pepper. I haven't had any since I became prego, but come april 2010, its on.

6. The only must see daytime TV for me is 2:45- 3 when Rachael Ray does her cooking segment.

15. I actually like living in Abilene.

16. I'm running out of things to say.

17. Are you still reading this?

18. I have a foot in my rib at this very moment

19. I'm about to be the only woman in the house with 4 boys and a boy dog.

20. I love to hike. easy trails--lets not get crazy here people. you now know about my loose ligaments.

21. I LOOOOOOVE Jesus and how personally He loves us.

22. Ok... this is cheesy..I love to read christian fiction novels, and if they are set in the 1800's, even better.

23. I also love cheesy Christian movies.

24. Almost every single time I watch Deal or not Deal, Extreme Makeover Home Edition, or Private practice, I ball like a baby.

25. I love to read blogs. I'm inspired my other people's stories.

And for your early Christmas present, I haven't tagged anyone, because that puts expectation on you and I want ours to be a relationship of freedom. :)
