It's Judd's turn (and Kristina requested). I blogged about Owen and I did a video of Wyatt. I don't want to slight the middle child! ;)

Judd is a wonderful little boy. He keeps us laughing a lot. Owen and Judd are so different. I love how God makes each of us unique and so very special.

Judd loves me more than anyone and I love it. He likes to hug and kiss me and tell me how much he loves me. What more could a mother want? I love his big, brown eyes and his long eyelashes.

Judd is the most attached to me but it's in a different way than Owen. Owen doesn't like the unknown but he loves his grandmas and will stay with them at the drop of a hat. Judd goes but not as readily and he is good away for one night. He is always ready to come home. Judd doesn't seem to mind the unknown. I'll be surprised if he cries when he goes to pre-school.

Judd had to get fillings at the dentist in his two front teeth this week. He fell on our porcelain tile and I think it caused some trauma to his teeth (and he really likes sugar). He was AWESOME! The dentist used gas and I could hear him walking him through every step. Judd never fussed once. The dentist was amazed and said it was very unusual. He is a very brave little boy.

Judd says the funniest things (his voice alone will make you laugh). He says his words like a hillbilly. He should be potty trained but he chooses to still use pull-ups. I'm not going to press the issue and he uses the potty much of the time. He'll come and tell me that he used the "big pot." I'm not sure where he got that but it sounds so funny.

He can take care of himself. Brad and I call him the AVENGER. Wyatt dropped a little truck on Owen's head (a 7 month old drops everything) and Owen cried. I'm sure it hurt. Judd thought he should pick up the truck and knock Wyatt in the head. Thank goodness Brad was there to stop it!

I hope you can tell how much I love my three little guys by reading this blog. It's a lot of work but it's so worth it. I'm so thankful that I have Brad to help me. I couldn't imagine a better dad for three wild boys.

Owen has fallen asleep like this two times now. He doesn't take a nap every day anymore and sometimes he should. He just loves to play so much. Notice that he put one puzzle together but then fell asleep before he finished the other. I'm not sure why he likes to play at our front door. I guess it's because there is a nice open space there.

Owen finishes his first year of pre-school this week. It has been a daily struggle. He truly likes it after he gets there but he has some anxiety about going. I think he is afraid he will miss out on something that we are doing (which is usually nothing). I see so many similarities in Owen and me. Maybe it's being first born and maybe it's genetics.

Owen is a very sensitive child. He has a tender, tender heart. I love this about him. He is also very insightful and has a great thought process. We heard the boys talking in bed this morning so Brad got up and went to get in their bed. They all got under the covers and shot basketball from the bed. We have bucket of balls. Brad reminded the boys that they were going to Pop and Granny's to spend the night. Owen said, "Are you and mommy glad that we are going to be gone?" Brad told him that yes we were glad. Owen said, "Is it so you all can clean the house." Brad said that was one of the reasons. Owen said, "And so you all can rest." Is he a smart cookie or what?!?

My sister took all of these pictures of the boys. She was visiting from Nasheville and spent the day with them and let me go shopping. The boys enjoyed Auntie Laura. Owen and Judd have on soccer uniforms that she brought them back from England.

Sweet, Sweet Baby!
I think all little boys love boots. Judd wears these a lot. Owen has some Spider Man snow boots. Somehow I have convinced them that you only wear boots at home!!

The boys got a Gator for Christmas (thanks to Granny Marcy and Pop). They are enjoying getting to use it now that it's warmer.

Mother's Day 2008

I feel so blessed to be the mother of three little boys. God has given me a huge task but I know he will be there to guide me through this journey. Last night Judd hugged my neck while I was sitting on the floor and said, "Mommy, you have all boys."

The following was written in my card.

Somthing nice about Mommy:

Owen: I love Mommy because she is a great, great, good mommy.
I like Mommy because she gives me kisses all the time.
I like Mommy because she loves me and I really love her, too.
I like that she gives me presents sometimes.

Judd: I like Dannette mommy. I like that she put on the "Monster Inc." I like that she puts on
the ghosts that come out of the mud (Scooby Doo DVD). I like her because she is Dannette, she is a girl.

Wyatt: Momomomomomom.

Such sweet, sweet boys!
MY THREE SONS.....Owen, Judd, and Wyatt.
