Home with Baby Nathan

Luke & Noah have been the best big brothers. I was very surprised with the smoothness of the transition bringing Nathan home. Noah worried me the most, he's a total momma's boy, he's rough, emotional, wears his heart on his sleeve type of dude. I wasn't sure how he was going to react to having a baby in the house. Well he's been such a loving affectionate big brother! He kisses the baby, he's gentle with him, he lets me know as soon as the baby starts crying. He's been so sweet! And Luke has been awesome too! He calls him "Nafan." He tries to put the pacifier in Nathan's mouth when he cries and he tells me to give the baby milk when it's time to nurse! With three boys our house is definitely louder, messier, full of tears and stinky diapers but also full of smiles, hugs, kisses and cuddles. It's hard but totally worth it, they fill my heart! 

P.S. We got them to sit still on the bed long enough to snap some pictures by putting candy on the bed! Hey, whatever it takes!

Luke's 3rd Birthday

We celebrated Luke's 3rd birthday on Saturday! We went in his room in the morning and sang him Happy Birthday! He lit up as soon as he walked out and saw the table setting. It was the sweetest thing watching how excited he was for his birthday. Then we took him out for donuts and chocolate milk! We made it a tradition to treat our boys to chocolate milk on the day of their birthday so we went to West Oak and got chocolate milk on tap! Yummy! Later that day we had friends and family over for dinner and cake. The kiddos had a blast decorating their own cupcakes, hitting the pinata and running around together. My favorite part of the day was when Luke walked up to me in the kitchen and said, "thank you mom my birday, gimmie a hug." I'm so blessed and grateful that I get to be his mommy. He fills me with so much joy, his smile from that day is embedded in my heart forever.
