Wow, It has been way too long...

Facebook has taken me away from I'm sure it has done to most others as well, it's just so much quicker, not a lot of words need to be written and you can communicate at the same time, where as with blogger, to communicate you have to go to every ones individual blogs and read and look, and before you know it, you've been on the computer for three hours and the baby has put every bit of toilet paper you have in the house in the toilet! No? Not you? Well, I'm sure it has happened to someone at some point. I would LOVE to have a Facebook fan page for my photography business but I have limited computer up keep time on my hands with three busy little ones so for now I am uploading Michelle Jenkins Photography images to my personal Facebook page. If we are not already friends, please be-friend me! :) Michelle Miller Jenkins.

The kids are growing growing growing and learning more with each passing day...learning how to out smart their mama for the most part! Anderson has passed his 18 month old mark and that kid is crazy!!! He is my baby that I must keep an eye on at all times, because he is fearless and could care less about discipline. He just started singing songs and even yodels :) Landon is in 3 year old preschool now and loves it! Loves his teachers and his friends. He uses such big words, and correctly!! He is very strong willed, so active, strong and has a wonderful imagination, not to mention a smile that will melt your heart. Alli is doing wonderfully is school and she will start 2nd grade after the new year. She is such a big help to me and a great big sister to her brothers. She is very into nature right now, and loves catching butterflies and making homes for them in the flower bed. She has moved a bit away from Hannah Montana (thank goodness) and just loves Taylor Swifts music right now. My little diva :)

Here are the most recent pics of them all together this late Summer and early Fall:

For my own records, this is what Anderson is doing at 18 months old:

Says so many words and loves to repeat any thing you ask him to:
(for cow he only makes the sound) moo
(same for cat) meow
eye brown
bebo (belly button)
heiny (same as butt, diff word)
no no
all done
thank you
Aunt Amy
Aunt Katie
Bo bo (when he gets hurt)
no touch
cheese (when he sees a camera)
poo poo
pee pee
(I'm sure there are more little guy, it's just hard to think of them off the top of mommys head)

He can take his diaper off in the morning and throw it in the trash (love this!)
He washes his own body parts, loves taking showers and just standing with the warm water to his back
Has the cutest little fast run
Can clean up
When he spills something he goes straight to the towel drawer to get a towel and clean it up
Doesn't really care about being potty trained
Loves giving kisses, and they are oh so slobbery
Still missing four baby teeth besides his molars
Loves chicken and dumplings, spaghetti and pizza, ranch and sour cream
doesn't like graham crackers or pop tarts
climbs up into his high chair yelling "eat" when he sees me setting the table
loves using a spoon and drinking from a cup with no lid
Stopped using a bottle at 14 months old
Still sleeps in bed with us or on his own little bed on the floor in our room
sometimes takes a nap during the day, if he does he goes to be about 10pm and wakes at 9am, if he doesn't get a nap he goes to bed at 7pm and wakes at 7am
Favorite songs: Ittsy Bittsy Spider, Row Row Row your Boat, ABCs, Twinkle Twinkle, Fly me to the Moon

Good bye BABY Hello TODDLER

The photo above is what a one year old boy looks like sleeping on his birthday.

Today my youngest turned ONE...My tiny little baby, gone. For breakfast he had Apple Jacks, spaghetti for lunch and beef raviolis for dinner. <---Just wanted to record that.

I receive an email each week telling me what my baby is doing now and what he will start doing and they are always titled "Your Baby, 11 months, week 4." But my latest email was "Your Toddler..."

He walks everywhere, there are days that I never see him crawl, he even runs if you chase him! For months I've been telling Landon that pretty soon brother is going to be walking and running in the back yard with you...that day is now here.

My Anderson is so sweet, he loves to kiss and kiss and kiss.

His last "boobie" day was Wednesday April 8th. That was also his first night without me. Daddy kept him while I went on a girls gettaway to Jefferson, TX. I was gone for a little under 48 hours and he did great! Ken too! :)

He gibber gabbers about lots of things, none of which I know. He loves looking at books and being read to and will bring me a book and sit down by me for me to read. He says "that, that" pointing to what he wants. Loves to put lids on objects, drops things behind his back and puts his hands up ("where did it go?") He will throw a ball (straight down, but he gets the concept), laughs when he knocks down blocks, he likes to give bites to people or give you a toy, he screms if you take something from him if he didn't offer it to you first :) He can point to your nose, mouth, tongue and of course boobie :) I give him items in the grocery store and he puts it in the basket behind him.

I will have to say, now that his daddy got him onto bottles he has become such a happy baby to everyone. I can come and go freely without being worried that he is at home screaming.

He still does not sleep through the night, he wakes up at 2 or 4am for a bottle (which he probably does not need). Since last week he slept through the night once, we are hoping to see more of those nights ;)

Happy Birthday my sweet Anderson Brady! Mommy is so happy that God had a plan for your precious life. You have such a special place in our family. You make up smile and laugh every day. Mommy can't wait to see you grow and see what kind of personality you have. Your brother and sister love you so much and are enjoying being able to play with you more and more each day as you learn new things. My life would be incomplete without you sweet boy.

First hair cut

This boy did so great! No crying, or wiggling, he just sat there and got the job done! Oh, now that I'm looking at these pics I miss his long hair!!!

11 months

Here is my boy at 11 months (a little late posting)....he is into everything, and non-stop!

He says "that, that" while pointing to the things he wants, or asking about something new

He loves looking at books and holds them up to me when he wants me to sit down and read to him

He holds his hands up and out to the side when asking where something is or where is has gone to

Says "Uh" when he drops something, and every now and then the "oh" comes out after

He still weighs 20.5 pounds

He is doing very well with walking and has taken up to 20 steps without falling

He is down to only nursing once a day, just at night before bed, okay, lets be honest, I feed him from me in the middle of the night if he wakes up for it, who ever said bottles are easier than breastfeeding? This Mama doesn't have to get out of the bed at 3am :)

June 25, 2002

What does the date above have to do with March 6, 2009? Well, on June 25, 2002 I went home for lunch and took a HPT and found out that I had a baby growing and thriving inside of me.

I was ecstatic!
Screaming, laughing, crying, all out loud in a house all by myself.
I couldn't contain the excitement that I was feeling and I had no one around to tell.

Would I be able to keep this from Ken; how was I going to tell him that he was going to be a daddy?
What do I do?
Do I go to the doctors?
Right now?
Call in sick for the rest of the day?

I headed back to work with the biggest smile on my face. I wanted Ken to be the first to know of course, but I was crazy happy and thought I would mosey on by my managers office door....{Amy Mize}...she could tell I had info that needed to be shared and well, I shared!
She was so happy for us.

I called the doctors and went right in that afternoon!

They confirmed, we were going to have a baby!!!!

I headed straight for the mall to pick up my husbands favorite cake.
An american cookie company cake.
This one had a stork carrying a blanket with a little baby head poking out with the words
"Congratulations Daddy"

He was so excited..."really? really?"
we couldn't believe it.

We wanted two boys, we thought that would be just wonderful...obviously we had never raised a boy!

On October 2, 2002 we discovered that our baby was a little girl.
Waiting to see the doctor after the ultrasound I kept thinking of everything that we would need in the future....another bathroom, prom dresses, a wedding!

Ooohh, a girl!
Ken said, "can't you just be happy and not think of all that stuff?"

So time passed rather quickly as the first pregnancy seems to do, and on March 6, 2003 at 12:43 pm I held my baby girl for the first time, and time stood still as a gazed upon her, I heard nothing going on in the room, just me and her. Holding her warm cheek against mine, breathing her in, my baby, all mine...

She weighed 8 pounds and 2 ounces and was 19 1/2 inces long.

Today my baby girl is 6 years old.

Alli has such a first born personality. She is reserved most of the time, until her fun crazy side breaks out and when it does she is too funny, but only if the mood gets her just right. She wakes up in the morning not wanting to be bothered, or spoken to. She expects chocolate milk to be brought to her and needs to snuggle on the couch with a blanket and watch a cartoon before any conversation takes place. She likes being the boss, the teacher, the instucter, the leader, any role in which she makes the final decisions. She is super quick when it comes to learning new things. She has an excellent memory and excels at everything. She plays the tough guy when she messes up or gets hurt, and yet she can get very embarrassed as well. Alli has a sweet, loving heart and usually takes on the role of little Mama. I hear her all of the time repeating things to her brothers that I have told her. She thinks she has all of the answers, and tends to say "I know, I know" before I can finish giving her an instruction. Happy Birthday my one and only girl! Mama loves you more than you know!
