Faith & Love

This is one of my favorite pictures of sweet Chanel and Brody. I think of Chanel and thank her everyday for the choice she made for little Brody. This picture speaks volumes to me, of the FAITH and LOVE Chanel has in our Heavenly Father. She never questioned our Heavenly Father once in what he wanted for her and Brody. She is a great example in my life and has a special place in my heart.

Our Little Tonka Boy

Just over the last week Brody has grown so much. He can now put weight on his legs and he is just to the point of smiling. Maybe it's the gassy smiles, but I swear there not. I think he is going to be very ticklish. Sometimes I just touch him and he smiles. It is so stinkin' cute. We love him more every day:)

Bathroom Talk

I need to share some of the funny things Brock is saying. I don't know why, but he loves to talk about poop. It must be a boy thing.?

-The other day Brock was in the bathroom going potty #2. When he started calling my name. "Mommy...Mommy...Mommy, come and look!" I always get so nervous when I here that. So, I go in and he says to me..."Look mommy I have poop juice."
FYI: Poop juice = diarrhea. I was laughing so hard that he associated diarrhea with juice. Smart little boy.

-Over Christmas break Granny Goose was over and asked him...."what his little brother's name was?" With his tongue sticking out and in a low scratchy voice he said "Phillip". So, me being weird and goofy asks him "fill up with what?" He looked at me and laughed. A couple of days go by, when aunt Taylor and Bryson came to stay. We were putting Brock and Bryson to bed and decided to sing them a song. It went like this:

Fill up,... fill up,.... fill up with what?
Fill up with Bryson,
Fill up with Brock,
Fill up with Brody,
Fill up with______?
We then asked Brock and Bryson to fill in the blank and Brock said...
"Fill up with poop"?.
We all were laughing so hard. We had to sing the song a couple of times. The boys laughed every time. To this day Brock will randomly ask me to sing the "Phillip" song. He ask me in the grocery store once. ha ha

Brock Turned 3 Big Ones!

Three years ago Brock was born. We can not believe it. It seems like yesterday we got the "call" in the middle of the night from Mommy Heather saying she was in labor. We will never forget the first time we met Brock. He is truly a heavenly gift and is a great blessing in our lives. We could not imagine life without him. With his silly personality he makes us laugh everyday. He had a great Birthday, got lots of awesome presents and ate a lot of cake and ice cream. If you ever want to play with any Toy Story toy....we have it, so come on over. There are so many things we love about Brock, but sense he is 3 here are 3 things we love about him:
1. We love that every morning he comes into our bed and tells us with a big smile on his face that "he woked up".
2. We love that he loves to give and receive hugs and kisses. We are eating them all up because we know it won't last forever:(
3. We love his silly personality. You know when Brock is in the room, because his voice is way above anyone else's and he can go from a sweet and sharing little boy to a grumpy selfish little boy in seconds. He cracks us up.
He is a very smart 3 year old, but he still has a lot to learn. We are excited to teach and help him grow through the years to come. He makes us laugh and smile everyday. We Thank his birth-parents for the sacrifice they made. We love you Heather and David!
Brock we hope you had a great Birthday. We love you so, so, so ,sooo much!

Brody is 1 Month Old

Cute little Brody is 1 month old today. He has grown so much already. He is up to drinking 3-4oz. and is sleeping really good at night. The other night he slept for 8 hours:) I woke up in a panic and went to his room finding him still swaddled and fast asleep. What a good little boy. He is so sweet. I thank Chanel and Devin everyday for the sweet little blessing they have given us.
