Cade Roy is growing up...

Cade is growing up fast. I think I see two little teeth starting to come in already. Plus, today when I was taking his picture on our bed (see below) he rolled over many times from his belly to his back. In fact, I had trouble keeping him on his tummy for the photo shoot. Our bed may have a slight slope and therefore it doesn't really count as the "first" to me. I'll wait until he can do it on the floor. He also seems to be pushing up with his arms some already. He likes to laugh and is such an easy baby. I am thankful for him.

Luke -- named his hands last week Andy and Zane. Last night Andy was pushing me and one of the two little guys couldn't keep himself under control at the video store. It wasn't Luke's was Zane or Andy. He also noticed today that I started to pull out without my seat belt on. He said, "No seat belt mommy." I buckled myself in and he said, "Thank you." It's nice to know I've got three little boys and a husband to keep me safe. :o)

What makes you thankful?

During Thanksgiving time I am reminded how blessed I am to have three great little boys. I asked the older two what they are thankful for: Zane said that he told his Sunday School teacher he was thankful for watermelon. He told me he was thankful that God protects us from bad men. Luke was thankful for Jesus, Jesus, Jesus and, when pressed for another answer, Papa.

Tonight Cory took the boys to a girls basketball game. Zane asked Cory on the way if there were going to be girls playing. When Cory said yes, Zane said that they shouldn't play because they could get hurt; basketball is for boys. I honestly don't know where he comes up with this information.

Zane's movie.

Zane and I went to his first movie on Wednesday, October 26. We went to see Madagascar while Luke stayed the night for the first time with Papa and Grandma Boom-Boom (His first time overnight anywhere without me.) Zane enjoyed the movie, had his own little pop (a rare treat), popcorn and candy. He talked through the whole thing; asking questions mostly. It was a fun date for us.

Note of interest: Luke got stung by a bee for the first time 10/25/05. He handled it pretty well. He grabbed it from his neck and had it in his hand until Grandma got it out. He cried for a few minutes until I offered him chocolate milk. Grandma Boom-Boom was more upset than he was.

Second note of interest: Luke is now crawling out of his crib regularly. It started about two weeks ago and you can't stop him. About the same time, he learned how to open doors and is no longer afraid to get up and down from our bed.

Zane and litter patrol

The day before yesterday our family went for a walk. Zane wanted to wear gloves and his backpack. Why? Because he wanted to pick up garbage. He said, "People are litter bugs."

Cade spit-up for the first time today. I didn't know that some babies never spit-up; both my other two spit-up regularly.

Luke learned how to climb out of his crib yesterday. Now his is unstoppable - I put him in his crib probably six times today at nap time. He is so excited about his new skill that he is not afraid of the consequences.

Gifts and smiles

I think it interesting that when we brought Luke home from the hospital Zane handed Luke a little toy basketball. When we brought Cade home, Luke gave him two toy puppies. Somehow both Zane and Luke had the desire to give their new brother a gift. They did this on their own. It wasn't an idea that someone else gave them. They both seemed to just want to express their love to the newest member of our family. My boys must each have a sweet, giving nature.Y

I think Cade smiled at me several times yesterday. They are little smiles, but I'm pretty sure they are smiles. He would have been 5 weeks and 1 day old.

What boys like

I want to be able to remember what little boys like at different stages of their development. My older boys (ages 1 and 3 1/2) love: flashlights, tape measures, backpacks, balls, hats & gloves, helmets & bikes. My thought is that if I write these things down now, when I get older and my kids are grown I will still know what to get little guys for their birthdays, Christmas, etc.

Luke's words

I published a post earlier that told a story about Zane saying he would "freak out." Since that time Luke has started "freaking out" too. It is cute because he can't quite say it; it sounds more like "feak ou." He says a lot of two or three word sentences now; however, sometimes his words still run together. His newest sentence is "What did you say?", but when Luke says it it sounds more like one word. He is really fun to listen to. For awhile now he has said "Sorry" followed by "again." He shakes his head when he says "again." Translation: He is sorry and he will not do it again. He seems to be sorry a lot and so we have heard this many, many times. I think I must smile every time because he seems so sincere and it's adorable.

A story that needs to be told...thumb sucking

I think it was May when I took Zane and Luke to the doctor for their last well-checks. The doctor said that she could tell Zane sucked his thumb because of his teeth. A while later I talked to Zane about what the Doctor said and asked him what we should do. I suggested buying something to put on his thumbs to make them taste bad. He said, "No, I'll just stop." The amazing thing is that he did! I can't get over how he just understood there was a problem, determined to stop and then more problem. He is amazing! How many three year olds do you think have that kind of will power??
