Time! Time to wake up, Time to eat, Time to go, Time to work, Time to play, Time to sleep, Time to blog, Time to cook, TIme to do Laundry, Time to teach, Time to plan, TIme to get ready, TIme to CLEAN, Time to see, Time to listen.......Time Time TIme! There's never Enough Time! My Days are full of stuff to do, I am busy with things I have created for myself! But at the end of the day I find myself wondering.... Did I spend enough time with my boys doing NOTHING? Just sitting there snuggling them, and making sure they know how much I cherish these precious stages. I need to make more TIME for that! Because all too soon my time will be up! So I vow to spend more Time doing NOTHING! :)

I am a Mother!

When someone asks me “what do you do?” I say “oh I’m Just being a mom”.
But I recently read a book that has inspired me to think and act different!!
I should say with complete confidence!!! “I am a Mother!”
“If we stop to think about what we do, really do, we are building for the centuries. We are building character, and tradition, and values, which meander like a river into the distance and out of our sight, but on and on and on.”
-Anna Quindlen, Loud and Clear

Seriously. I love that we can feel empowered as women to be mothers. We are building society as we know it. And we need to help build each other up. That’s one of the reasons i Love Blogging:) We are just a big huge support network for each other. I have had some of the hardest days of my life being a Mother. And it is so comforting to know that i can hop on the internet and find that all of you are right there in my shoes. Cleaning up poopy smears, and trying to find healthy snacks, and figuring out schedules that work, And loving these little monsters so much it hurts.

“ I believe the choice to become a mother is the choice to become one of the greatest spiritual teachers there is. To create an environment that’s stimulating and nurturing, to pass on a sense of responsibility to another human being, to raise a child who understands that he or she is created from good and is capable of anything-I know for sure that few callings are more honorable. To play down mothering as small is to crack the very foundation on which greatness stands.”
-Jane Clayson Johnson, I am a Mother

Those are fighting words! They make my job feel important, and worthy. Contrary to what the world might portray.
Some times I feel a bit inadequate reading all yalls Blogs and Posts. But I am doing the best I can! I love being a Mother, more than I have loved anything I’ve ever been- But It’s harder and more challenging than anything I have ever experienced. I often find myself on my knees at night thanking Heavenly Father that this day is over, and asking for the strength to do it all over tomorrow. But my reward is when both of my boys are cuddled up next to me while I sing “ you are my sunshine” and they drift off to dreamland. Priceless. I am soo blessed.

So next time someone asks you “What do you do?” Shout “I am a Mother!”
Pass it on:)

And yes I recommend “I am a Mother” by Jane Clayson Johnson to all you mommies out there to get inspired.....:)

8 Months

I can't believe how fast my baby is growing! I feel like i need to push pause and just enjoy each stage a little longer!
I can't get enough of this bug... Ooh i just love his kisses and squeezes!
* Jett is such a momma's boy, he reaches for me now- and makes his daddy mad!
* He army crawls with his head... it is so funny to watch. But he gets little rug burns on his forehead from pushing so hard.
* He is still nursing about 3 to 4 times a day, but likes his bottle too and holds it by himself which is wonderful!
* He still likes baby food mostly just fruit though, he is getting better at eating with his hands.
* He is soo smiley and happy, everyone comments on what a sweet happy baby he is.
* He is taking such good naps lately! and has really started liking his bed, he likes to just lay in there and talk.
* His legs are strong, and he can stand while holding on to something all by himself!
* He has two bottom teeth, and bites me! makes me so mad!!
* He Loves Loves Loves his brother! Anything Hudson does he wants to be a part of! When Hudson walks in the room Jett screeches for joy!
*He snuggles on my shoulder, my favorite part of life so far:)
*He adores his daddy, and loves playtime with brother and Dad!
If i could clone him, and have one more just like him- i would!!
It seriously makes me feel like I can handle a couple more If there was a guarantee they would be like Jett.

on a side note: We went to see toy story 3 and i balled my eyes out, Thinking my boys will someday grow up. And I will have to give all their toys away! I dread that day. I honestly can't think about it. I love this stage of life, and Selfishly want to prolong it as long as possible.... Any other moms with me on this?


So Andre PoPcOrNeD me:)
And the first 5 songs on my Ipod that come up when set on shuffle are............
1.Justin Beiber and Sean Kingston-Eenie Meenie (haha Beiber Fever anyone?)
2.Keisha- Your Love is my Drug
3.Katy Perry- Hot n Cold
4.Taylor Swift- Superstar
5.Broken Bells- The High Road

So what if i listen to music like I am a fourteen year old:) I am by heart.

The Tall Tales of Hudson Steven...

Meet Hudson Steven Holm, the kid with the most creative, vivid imagination ever. I love to listen to his stories all day long. And I am Talking ALL DAY LONG. This child can talk.... hmmmmm I wonder where he gets that from? We know it's not from his father:)
But lately i have been sad, thinking this stage will pass soon. And i haven't really written a lot of the funny things he says down. So i am going to try to keep up on the Tall Tales of this precious little boy, so that i can always have them to make me smile....

Story #1: Me: Hud what are you doing in there? Who are you talking to? Hudson: Oh mom, I am just talking to Rowber. He is my friend he came to play!
(Rowber is Huddy's Imaginary friend, he came to play about six months ago. And he never leaves:)
Me: Oh good, do you want some lunch? Hudson: no I don't, but Rowber wants some chocolate chips. They make him strong like a super hero!
(Rowber only eats candy and smoothies, what hudson wishes his diet consisted of)
meanwhile Jett starts to cry....
Hudson: mom! Jettbug is crying! Go fix him..... And fix Rowber's baby brother too!
Me: Rowber has a baby brother too? what is his name?
Hudson: ummm... His baby's name is ......Yogurt. Baby Yogurt! and he is cryin! And you need to call his mommy and daddy to feed him!
Me: OK what is his Mommy and Daddy's name, so i can call them?
Hudson: (not even a pause this time) His mommy's name is Doodle, and his daddy's name is Tuck ok! Just call them!

( i walk in to hudson talking on my old phone, that i gave him to play with)
Hudson: Mommy! Oh good I need your help!
Me: Ok What?
Hudson: Can you please help me Taxt all my friends, and invite them to Rowber's Party?
Me: Oh, you mean Text Message?
Hudson; Yes Taxt message Mom!
Me: Ok, well who you are you inviting to this party?
Hudson: We need to Taxt Chuck, and Jake, and Doug and Deek, and one more........ ummm Toad! Ok mom, taxt all those guys and tell them to come to Rowbers Party! Because there is gonna be a big Cake! And Everyone needs to bring Rowber a present! Tell them to bring him a SPECIAL Surprise! (in a whispery voice)

I get about ten of these stories a day... Oh how I love my little man:)

"A friend is someone who knows the song in your heart, and can sing it back to you when you have forgotten the words."
I liked this quote, and thought it Perfectly described these two Besties:) Literally because I forget words all the time:) and a little deeper then that too. Sometimes I feel like I can't remember what I was like before the kids and Husband, and House duties and bills.... and you know the rest:) I literally feel like it was a different person living a life on another planet. So going to spend some "selfish" Girl Time was a breath of fresh air! I recommend it to every mommy out there:) It was so nice to just hang, and talk, and get in touch with that other Human I used to be:) Even though the stuff we talk about now is entirely different then the stuff we talked about back then, But that's what makes best Friends so AmaZInG! We can Relate and sympathize and Analyze, no matter What stages we are at in Life...
So thanks Girls for making our little 3 day Vacay Happen! I am truly Blessed to have you guys in my life. I love you with all my heart, and am so glad that you two can remind me of the girl I used to be, and help me with the Girl/mommy/wife that I am now.

- He giggles and talks all day long!
- He is sleeping thru the night!!! WOO HOO!
-He loves his Brother!
-And He loves to be Snuggled by mama
- He is soo sweet and such a good baby!
I love you Jett Bug!

Missin my Sissies:)

I have always lived by at least one of my sisters. And for the first time in my life I am alone! I hate it! I miss these girls more than they could imagine! I just wanted to tell them that they are my best friends. They can make me laugh like no body's business. We have so many fun memories together! And it so fun seeing our kids make memories together now. But I count down the minutes until I am with my sissies:) Nobody understands you better than a sister. No one forgives you quicker. No one makes you laugh harder. No one will ever compare to your sisters:) I am a lucky girl to have two:) I love you sissy poos.....

Peace and Love...

5 MoNtHs! I absolutely love this age... (but i always say that at every stage). Jett is so much fun right now. He smiles when I walk in the room. He plays with toys. He rolls over. He loves to be entertained by his big brother:) He blows bubbles and makes the cutest cooing sounds. He is really ticklish, and giggles so hard when you squeeze his legs. He is constantly hungry.... and I mean CoNStAnTly!! Must be a growth spurt! He loves to snuggle. He loves his daddy to tease him. He is close to being able to sit up. HE LOVES rice cereal. Which is funny because Hud hated it! He still doesn't sleep all the way thru the night. I don't know what it is with all you mom's that are like " my two month old sleeps 12 hours a night" blah blah blah is what i say to you! How would it be to sleep thru the night!! I cannot remember! But Overall He is an Angel. The spirit he brings to our Family is soooo Sweet!! We love you Jett Bug!
