mommy of three

Life has been a little crazy around our house adjusting to three small boys. There is never a dull moment or quiet moment. So what has been going on around our house.....

We have had a few photo sessions in our cute shirts! Here is my friend's website that made the shirts for my boys. She has some really cute stuff. Take a look.

The boys play with Baby Callen's tub while I nurse Baby Callen. I was informed they were playing doctors!

The boys get creative again while I nurse and become turtles!

Will poops on the potty! He is now potty trained. Thanks to Mems help!!!

Spiderman visits the house daily and plays so hard that he sleeps anywhere at naptime!

Baby Callen is growing. He is so adorable!

I have to admit... I am spoiled! I have not been with all three boys yet by myself. My mom left on Thursday and took the big boys with her for a week. I guess the true test will come when they return, but for now I am enjoying my little one for a week all to myself and enjoying the quiet....which sometimes is too quiet!

I have to say that I have the best Mommy in the world. I could not do this newborn stuff without her help the first couple weeks. I have to give a shout out to my Mom and say thank you for spending many days with us and for all your help. Your the best Mommy and Mems a daughter and grandson could ask for!!!! I love you!!!!

Here are the boys right before they left for Louisiana. They were so excited to go!

We miss them so much and will be ready to see them soon. Even Kirby is waiting patiently. This is where I found him the day after they left. I realized that I had not seen him for several hours. After calling his name around the house, I located him sitting on Ethan's bed looking out the window. Kirby misses his brothers!

Excuse Me! Remember Me, God! It's My calendar not yours!

Sweet Baby Callen David

Well, below is the post that I wrote last Monday and never posted. I was going to publish it that night, but never got around to it.

God reminded me last Wednesday EARLY in the morning that it is indeed HIS plan and calendar that I am to follow not my own. God is in control!!!

Callen David made his appearance Wednesday, June 2 at 4:46 am. I went into labor around 9:00 on Tuesday evening and by 1:00 a.m. I finally figured out what was going on. Well, I should be honest and say that I finally decided to face the facts that I was having contractions!!! We left the boys at our sweet neighbors house and made it to the hospital by 2:45 a.m. The nurses had me all ready and in the operating room by 4:00 am. Then by 4:46 I heard his sweet cry!!!! Callen David weighed 7 lbs and 10 oz. He was 19 1/2 inches long. Our smallest little one! He is beautiful and sweet as pie. The boys are thrilled and excited to have him home with us. Everyone is doing great and adjusting well.

We didn't get to go my brother's wedding. I made it through the day on Saturday with out crying about it, but was sad I didn't get to be there. My family brought me pictures to see, and I am waiting to watch the DVD when it is ready. It was a beautiful wedding, and the exciting thing is that I get to see them this weekend when they come home from their honeymoon! YAY!!!!

I am so blessed to have such a wonderful family and friends that have helped us through the last couple days. Thank you to everyone!!!!

Thank you God for watching over us last Wednesday. Thank you for a safe delivery and a healthy baby boy.

I love their shirts. My sweet friend made them!

Sweet Big Brothers!!!!

Callen David Bozeman

Well, in exactly one week from today we will be meeting our third baby blue bundle of joy. I have been so busy lately with getting the house ready for his arrival, the boys prepared, ending school, doing last minute things with the boys, and mainly just trying to move/walk around that I haven't even posted about his name. So sorry for those who have been waiting!!!

Callen David Bozeman will be our little guy's name. David says will call him Cal for short. I am just going to have to wait to see if it fits him. I am loving just Callen for right now. We went the different route this time. I was a little hesitant to do something different, but now I am glad I bit the bullet. Which pleased David beyond belief!

The boys are excited, and Ethan even asked today why is Callen is not here yet. Apparently I told him when summer came then Callen would be here. Well summer has officially started for us, and smarty pants Ethan figured that one out quick! I told him one more week and counting...believe me mommy is counting!!!!

We just have to make it through the week and the wedding weekend and we are home free. My little brother is getting married this Saturday to a wonderful girl. Can't wait to have a little sister of my own!! Can't believe that my little brother is getting married!! I am so happy for them both and I DO NOT want to miss the big event for anything!!! You hear me Callen. Just a few more days!!!!

What I have learned this THIRD time around?
I do not have to eat everything is site when I am pregnant.
Your wedding ring can still fit even when you are one week away from delivery.
Being 30 something and pregnant is much different than being 20 something and pregnant!
Strangers love to give advice to pregnant women who have two little boys standing or running around next to them! Even when you have it TOTALLY under control they seem to still think they need to impress on to you their wisdom.
The stomach virus doesn't care if your are pregnant or not..he still visits!!!
A bladder infection is MUCH worse when you are nine months pregnant!
Apparently sleeping is over rated when your nine months pregnant!
Houston is 10 X hotter when your nine months pregnant....even on June 1st!
A Diet Coke will not kill you or even a cup of coffee, right?????
Sonic Ice is GOLD!!!!!

Callen's room is ready, onesies washed, car seat assembled, bassinet set up and sheets are on, diapers are waiting, and hospital bags are packed....June 8th here we come!!!

Thank you God for our little miracle and in trusting us with one of your children. We pray that we will raise him to be a servant of yours. Please keep us both safe for the next few days and watch over us all on June 8th.
