Santa Baby

Our Little Stink turned five months old this past week, and since we never miss even the smallest opportunity to snap some photos, we got out the Christmas lights and Santa hat, and played around a little with our camera, flashless.
Notice the drool?
He cut his first tooth this same day.Ah! teething....

Happy Grumpy Thanksgiving!

He didn't go to bed until midnight the night before. Then, because everyone else was doing it, he woke up at 6:30. Dinner fell right at the begining of nap, so he didn't get one of those, either. Oh Boy was he grumpy! and Tired!!! He wet his pants THREE times (which is often a sign of exhaustion for the poor little guy).

On days like today, you really have to stop and realize what Thanksgiving is all about. Family (Who loves you and puts up with your cranky toddler without complaint) Food (even if it's consumption leads you to a coma) Memories (racing around the kitchen to get everything done, running into others in the process).

Ok, so maybe it wasn't HIM who was grumpy...

And it sure makes you grateful for the 364 OTHER days we DON'T get up early to bake a turkey.
So Happy Thanksgiving all! Even if it is a grumpy one!

Ya see something new every day...

Have you ever seen a lion blow bubbles?

He smiles, too, which is something I've never heard of.

And his closest relative?

Yup, he's a scarecrow.

You see something new every day

Lessons Learned

Things We've learned this past month:
1. Infant Reflux STINKS, but Prevacid works GREAT!

2.It's hard to explain to a toddler why all the leaves fell off the trees, and even harder to keep him from jumping in the huge pile it took you two hours to rake.

3. It is difficult to be taken seriously by the previously mentioned toddler when you have hiccups.

4. Little Brothers are NOT good at catching balls that are thrown at their heads

5. Even the Craziest, Wildest, highest-energy little boys make ADORABLE big brothers.

3 months young

K, so this has been a long time coming, as he will be four months old in a little over a week, but things get busy, people get sick, trains get stuck in lotion-puddles...

You know the drill. Anyway, here is our little stud at three months.

My Mommy

This beautiful woman is my Mommy.
She will always be my "Mommy".
To my children, she is "Mamaw".
She raised me to adulthood, and all by herself, too.
My children and husband adore her.
She brings light wherever she goes.
She is my hero.

My Boys

These are my boys.
They are, in any single day, messy, stinky, naughty, silly, noisy, lovable, and amazing.
They are my angels!

I may not know much about being a good mom.

Possibly because Someone forgot to send me an instruction manual .

I don't always know what's wrong or how to fix it.
And I'm not sure how you can love two little people so much.
All I know is that I do, and they are growing up way to fast...

Two Months Old!!!

Our Little Stink is two months old already! I can't believe how fast it has gone. He weighs 11lbs 2oz and is 23 inches long! He is such a happy, content child. I got some good ones of him when he was upset. Since it doesn't happen very often, I just couldn't resist. We just love him so much!

Silly Bubba

Bubba is such a silly little two-year-old! He decided, after the baby was finished with his bath the other night, that he needed to take a bath in the baby tub. He thought it was the most fun thing he'd done all day. Sometimes he says the darndest things.
Today, I was holding the baby, and Bub walked up and licked him on his forehead. I said "That's yuck, Bub!" He ignored me, and said to Stink "Baby, wanna bath?"

Such a BiG Boy!!!

Stinker is six weeks old now, and growing like a weed! Our little piggy already weighs over ten pounds!!! He is sleeping 7-10 hours a night, which Mom is LOVING!!! Bubba loves being a big brother, and just can't get enough of his new baby.

And here is our cute little cheeser at six weeks!

Stink's Blessing

Stinker is such a sweet baby, and an amazing little addition to our family. We celebrated his blessing on August 2. We had a lot of our wonderful friends and family come to support us, and the blessing, performed by Kyle, was beautiful. We partied afterward at my parent's house, where we ate til we were sick, roasted in the blazing heat, and laughed until we almost cried. Oh, and Bubba dropped his Sprite all over Shawn's new wife's skirt. Good times...

Just Playin

Things in the Budge household are pretty great! Baby is sleeping well, Bubba is adjusting well, Mom and Dad are loving life. Stinker is four weeks old today, and I plan on taking some more pictures as soon as his blessing outfit is done.
I have been playing around with some pictures after being inspired by my cute cousin. Here are some I have done...

My cute cousin took some cute pictures of my boys and made them look amazing. Here are the results! Enjoy!
