me & my boys

Well, I haven't blogged in forever but I thought I'd pop in & do a quick post so I can link up with Kelly's "mom to all boys" day today!

I think there is a certain pride in having all boys.  At least I feel that way.  When I was pregnant with my oldest, God spoke to me and said "I need more men who follow after Me in the world. With every son I give you, I am doing so because I trust that you can raise a man of God." Little did I know that he'd give me 3!!!

 Sean is my oldest, he's 5.5 and in Kindergarten.  He is sweet, compassionate, a little bit silly, very loving, very smart, and gets frustrated when he can't do things perfectly the first time. He is the most perfect oldest child I could have picked for our family- he loves to teach his younger brothers & help take care of them.  He's ALL boy (ok... all my boys are)- he loves anything superhero, Transformers, or Star Wars.

Nolan is my middle boy, he just turned 3. He is messy, silly, sweet, and thoughtful.  He loves to spend time with you, do any sort of art project, and he LOVES trains.   He has an incredible vocabulary for a 3 year old.  He's a little bit stubborn and a whole lot of cute.  These 2 pictures perfectly depict his personality!

Paxton is our newest addition- he is almost 7 months old! He has crazy hair & big eyes & is just the cutest, sweetest baby I know.  He army crawls everywhere, drools a lot, sleeps very little, and just said "mama" for the first time the other day.  He melts my heart and makes me smile.

I do have to ask everyone else if the number one question you hear from people is: "are you going to try for a girl??" hahaha!  My answer is always "We want 4 kids. Whether or not God gives us a girl for our 4th is up to Him." But for now, I love being the only girl in a house full of boys!!!
