playing catch up

Well, much has happened. Tucker was blessed May 2, and it was a wonderful day. We had family around us supporting us, and Tucker had a great day devoted to him. My Aunt Janaye crocheted a beautiful blanket for him to be blessed in, and my parents funded his blessing outfit. It was a beautiful blessing that Spencer gave Tucker.

Spencer has started coaching his summer league at Hunter High School, and loves it so much. He loves baseball, coaching, and just helping these kids to learn and grow. We are very excited because next year he will be getting a little money to pay for the long hours he devotes to baseball.

Kayla is very grown up. She took care of herself the other morning when i was so exhausted and didn't want to wake up yet. She poured herself and me a bowl of cereal, without milk, then poured us each a cup of milk. She ended up spilling, so she asked for my help to clean it up. She also brought up two pieces of french bread. That got me out of bed, because I knew that the french bread was not sliced by an adult. Yes, my three year old got a knife and cut the bread for herself and me. She does still have all her fingers, and no blood was spilt.

Nathaniel is a big boy. I forget that he isn't two yet, because he wears 2T-3T clothes. Any object or picture that is round is a "BALL!" The way he says it is as if it explodes out of his mouth. He loves to pitch to Spencer and have him hit it with a bat. He also has the perfect form for shooting a free throw. The other day he was showing me a circle on a piece of paper saying, "BALL!" I tried to correct him by saying "Circle". That exchange went of three or four times, then he put one hand on the side of my face to make sure I was looking at the same thing he was looking at, and said one final, "BALL". He either thought I understood, or just gave up on me.

Tucker is such a cutie. He is the hiccup king. I seriously have to burp him two times as long as it takes to feed him, so he doesn't get them, but he still will sometimes. He doesn't sleep through the night yet, but I have high hopes he will want to soon. He is growing so quickly. I can hardly believe he was half the size he is now two months ago. He is such a cute little guy, and makes the cutest noises that a baby makes.

Watching my family grow and learn is such a wonderful part of my life. I try to be a good mother and wife, and sometimes I feel like I am. I am so lucky to be a mother of three beautiful and wonderful children. I can hardly believe I am the mother of three. Time is moving very quickly. I love them, and am the luckiest wife. Spencer is so good to me, taking care of me and picking up my slack when I am weak. I am such a lucky person.
