"So promise me you'll never forget...that you aren't an accident or an incident...you are a gift to the world, a divine work of art, signed by God. You were deliberately planned, specifically gifted, and lovingly positioned on this earth...Flooded by emotion, overcome by pride, the Starmaker turns to us, one by one, and says, 'You are my child. I love you dearly.'" Max Lucado, God Thinks You're Wonderful

The men in my life...

Owen and Cooper could not be more smitten with each other and I love that. My sisters are still my best friends to this day, so I love the way they love (and sometimes fight) each other. And, they are still absolutely head-over-heels in love with their baby sister. They have made up all kinds of nicknames for her (Sade and Ski) and she gets the best smooches from them ALL DAY LONG! I am not jealous or anything...I'm just saying!

They are currently calling themselves Blake and Taylor Griffin. If you don't know these two guys, they are outstanding players for OU basketball. Our boys just happen to resemble them and I hope one day they turn out to be just as neat as these two young men seem to be. Cooper loves it when I call him "Little Blake Griffin" it makes him smile BIG! And, he actually eats more at dinner if you ask him to eat like Blake Griffin does!

He's at that stage (well really they both are) where its not cool to have your picture taken, especially with their mom. When does this end? 18???

Owen is getting so big and I am in definite denial of the fact that he is no longer a toddler, but a little boy. I have to say it's a difficult time as a mommy when he looks so big and talks so well and is super independent...that he is still only 3 1/2 years old. I mean, look at this picture...can you believe how big he is?
Cooper makes me laugh non-stop. He now knows how to wink...and it's scary. I mean, as if this guy really needed anything else to draw in the ladies...come on!

The boys are getting big just since I started following your blog they have grown and so good looking little guys! There's many days that I think a little sister for Aaron would be great he is so good with babies he probally would be kissing her all day too! But then at the end of the day like today I remember how exhausted I am well see.

are you kidding me? Could those two be any cuter? I love how much they love each other and their little sister! Their love for each other is a direct reflection of the great parents they have!

Can't wait to see you... when is that girls night going to happen?

Love your pics!!!! Your boys are gorgeous..and look like the Griffin boys!! They seem to be very neat and very close, hopefully good role models. I know what you mean, Andrew is four and sometimes I look at him and think...where in the world did all the time go, I don't even remember him being little like Kaitlyn you know! Take care friend! Again, you look gorgeous yourself!
