I Love These Three :)

They wanted to go outside sooo bad. So here they are rain boots and umbrellas in the pouring rain!
Jackson talking to Hampton .. which doesn't happen often! :)
Sweet boy
Princess Carson .. hahaha! I try to tell him he is a PRINCE not a Princess.
One of Jackson's favorite things in the world .. a tractor!
Watching Tangled. And yes, he is even wearing bracelets. Please tell me my kid isn't the only "girly" boy?!

The Past Few Days

Hampton's new favorite things: Talking to Mama and staring at the ceiling fan!

I seriously wasted my time and money on the bassinet, swing and playmat. I'll be consigning them all!

I just bought him size 2 diapers and he'll soon be wearing them when he runs out of the rest of the 1's.

I'm tired of the blowouts!

We're still breastfeeding! Go me! :) He hates bottles when we try to give him one. And he HATES pacifiers!

Brandon is in Georgia this week, possibly selling one of his converter businesses! If he does, we'll be able to pay off our bills and sell our house! Fingers crossed!!! I want so badly to move and of course get our bills paid!

I babysat a kid this week for one day. He was 4, and honestly it wasn't that much harder than having 3 kids. I wiped 4 butts that day not counting my own. I found that hilarious and clearly a first!

Me and Hubby took the boys (all three!) to the movies Saturday afternoon. Hampton slept the entire time, Jackson sat in Brandon's lap and watched half the movie and sleep the rest, Brandon even napped too! And Carson watched the entire movie. He loved it! We watched Tangled and had to buy it today since it came out! Carson loves it!!! Jackson would rather play with play-doh or push a tractor around!

Speaking of tractors, Brandon surprised the boys with new tractors a few days ago. One each, and they love them! I'll be glad when it warms up so they can get out there and ride more!

Hampton is Trying to Talk!!

Hampton loves cooing.

When he is happy he makes the cutest little sounds and tries to talk. It's precious.

Here's a little video I got of him the other day while he was talking to Mama :)

He was cooing so much even though not long after recording he started getting mad!

Now that I know how to do this I'll be posting more videos more often!!! :)

My Little Monkey is 2 Months Old!!

Hampton is 2 months old today!

I love my sweet boy so much!!!

Happy 2 months angel :)

Mama Loves You!!!

I Should Be Slapped

Seriously. We got wasted last night.

I feel like such a bad mommy. And honestly, I still don't feel sober.

Me and Hubby dropped the boys off with Grandma around 8:30! He worked late. The boys had already had a bath and ate, so I figured we would just go get something to eat and be right back.

Well .....

I had a big cup of Boone's Farm on the way (you're laughing if you know what this is). Then when we got to Outback we headed straight to the bar to eat and had a 22 ounce green beer each. We were literally the last ones left at the bar. And by that time I was already acting silly. We couldn't stop laughing.

We should have went home from there, but apparently we were feeling too good, ha!

We went by the store and grabbed two more 22's and headed to Uncle Danny's (where the beer is always flowing).

He wasn't home so we called and he was at a bar not too far away so we headed there.

I had 2 or 3 more beers there, don't remember?

Then left around 11:30 because we got a call from Brandon's dad saying, "Don't you know your mama has to work in the morning?" Oops.

We picked the boys up and got home around 12am. I felt like such an ass picking them up. I left all kinds of stuff over there. Bottle, socks .. not really sure what else. And I'm honestly a little embarrassed to go back to get it. Usually I'm walking around everywhere scouting everything out double checking making sure I haven't left anything.

Got home and gave Hampton a bath. Got the boys to bed. Bless their hearts they were so tired.

I woke up some time in the middle of the night, took some Tylenol, downed a lot of orange juice, and stood over the sink (TMI) squeezing my boobs. I needed some relief and Hampton slept all night last night. Thank God for that!

Anyway, waking up this morning I physically feel fine, luckily. But, I hate knowing I got drunk on a Thursday night. My kids deserve better, shame on me. I'm glad I got that out of my system.

Of course I have pictures .. (Hey I didn't say we didn't have fun!)

Green Beer!

Mine was pretty!
Waiting on Hubbs to finish his beer :)

About how we were feeling

We gave up, I kept complaining how the light was making me look so white!

At the bar with Uncle Danny

Coolest Uncle ever :) Love him

Happy St. Patrick's Day!

Today was Hampton's 2 month checkup.

He did so good! He was smiling and cooing the entire time, until his shots :( Poor baby!

Carson and Jackson chased each other around the room both crying for my phone. Embarrassing.

Hampton weighed 9 lbs 15 oz! Almost 3 lbs up from his last appointment about a month ago. And was 21 and 1/2 inches long. Only a 1/2 inch longer from birth. He was scrunched up, I think she measured wrong.

Today is St. Patrick's Day. So far we went to the doctor, had little man's shots and then we drove-thru at the bank, ate at McDonald's, let the kids play there, then we had to go to Walmart .. imagine that, ha! Now we're home waiting for hubby to get off work. And if he doesn't work too late we'll head to Outback for yummy food and GREEN BEER! :) It's our tradition. Love it!

It is SO beautiful outside today. We've already been taking walks around the yard. Hampton loves it, and I guess all the excitement of being outside wears him out because he seems to take good naps afterward.

Tomorrow it's supposed to be in the 80's! I love Spring weather!!

Also, tomorrow Hampton will be 2 months! I'll be sure to at least post a pic of my precious baby tomorrow! Something to celebrate 2 whole months! :)

Here's some pics from today ..

Just ME!


I saw an ad for a workout called Insanity by Shaun T. I love his workouts. I'm seriously considering it. YET .. it's around $100! I'm trying to be patient!!

I'm also trying to look at it this way. I'm 24 with 3 kids. I should be proud to be weighing 125! Plus, I'm loving the bigger boobs. It's making me consider a boob job, seriously. Hubby said he'd pay for it! :)

And I'm craving a new tattoo some kinda bad. I've been wanting one but I've been waiting to not be pregnant obviously and plus I've been wanting something dealing with my kids so it only made sense to wait until after Hampton was born. Now that he is here I'm so anxious!! I'm thinking a heart with C J H on the inside with wings, on my left inside part of my lower arm. If that makes sense?  AND I want 3 tiny stars on my right wrist after April 22nd. Me and Brandon will be married 3 years with 3 kids! I'm excited and ready to get them done!!!

8 Weeks Old

Hampton is 8 weeks old today! He'll be 2 months on Thursday!

He is already a Mama's boy! He loves to be held.

I miss being able to hop in the shower just whenever I felt like it. Now I have to calm Hampton most of the time in order to get one and by the time I get out he is usually screaming.

I wouldn't go back for nothing though. I love my little man.

Crying or not though I have to shower or I'd never leave the house! Then I'd go crazy :)

Hampton is sleeping in his crib officially now, I guess he has been for a week or so?

He sleeps really well through the night, sleeping usually 4-7 hours straight. Gets up to eat and goes back to sleep. Takes about 15 minutes.

He is starting to outgrow his newborn clothes, but can still wear most of them. He panics in sleepers, he would rather wear a onesie. Usually long sleeve because it's still cold! (it's supposed to be in the 80's on Friday!)

He loves to be outside. If he's fussy I can take him outside and walk him around and he gets calm. He loves it! Hey, there's a lot to look at out there!

He's pretty awesome in the car seat, as long as the car is moving!

He still won't take a paci, but I still try to give him one. Although, I'm sure he probably just won't ever care for one.

He is smiling and cooing now. It's just precious to hear him try to talk!

I need to learn how to upload my videos so I can share!

I think he'll have brown eyes. Sometimes they look green and sometimes brown. So I'm sure they'll just turn brown.

Here's me and my precious boy over the last few days ..

His favorite spot!

I love his smile, and his silly hair :)

What I do the majority of my day. I'm going to have some awesome looking arms ;)

Happy :)

Last week at my 6 week postpartum checkup I weighed 129.

Today at my follow up for depression I weighed 126! Woo hoo! I could tell I was losing weight!

I still wish I could be at my 110 pre-baby weight. I'll just dream, and maybe have time to workout one of these days.

So my doctor upped my dosage to 40mg. I'm feeling good, but I guess he wants me to feel great? We'll see how it works.

We're HAPPY :)

Out for Hubby's Birthday :)

Hanging out in the car at Taco Bell, lol :) We were all eating :)

Starting to feel me again :)

My PRECIOUS SMILING at Mama!!!! (notice he's going bald on top, like an old man, haha!)

That is one happy baby, and one happy Mama behind that camera!

SMILE :)))
