My life with 3 boys!!

So I find myself super busy these days!! Whew! Having 3 kids is far different than having 2! Life is so hectic now that Grant is home, the boys all seem to need something at the same time and im still trying to get the hang of things!! The boys (mainly Kingston) LOVE Grant soooo much! James is still a baby himself so he doesn't quite get it yet, but he is starting to come around. Kingston is so cute with the new baby... he says Grant is his baby and Jimmy is mine.
I also find the older boys doing things i've never seen before! I walked into the kitchen the other day and I found Kingston standing on the counter!! He pushed his stool in and climbed right up and got into the snacks!! He had asked me to get him some apple sauce but I guess I didn't get around to it fast he took it upon hiself...kinda would hurt real bad if he fell!

So I find that Kingston is being more independent and Jimmy....well Jimmy seems to be going the other direction!! He some how got into the swing and put Grants suckie in! I think he is trying to tell me something!!

With 3 boys the house is NEVER clean anymore!! It now looks like this 99.9% of the time.

Now onto my miricle baby Grant! He has been doing so wonderful since hes been home!! He is starting to gain weight and just gets cuter and cuter! We are so greatful that hes here with us and so happy he is doing so well!
papa DeWitt came to see Grant and was so cute with him. great papa is 93 years old and still kickin! Its so nice that he is still around to meet our kids... he is an amazing man and I look up to him so much.

Yay!! Grant got realeased on Sunday morning and is home and doing well!! We went to his dr. apt today and he has gained an oz since being home and now weighs 5lb 4oz! We are so blessed to have him home with us and we are trying to get used to having a new born again! We have gotten about 2 hours of sleep since he came home...I check on him about every 2 minutes! He has a check up with his endocrinologist (hormone doc) tomorrow... he has a rare condition in which he doesn't produce his own cortisol and has to be on medication called hydrocortizone to suppliment for it. Cortisol is a hormone that helps keep your body temp up so its very important that he gets his meds on time! We hope it won't be a permanent condition and we should find out more tomorrow!! If it is we know we can deal with it and are so blessed that this is all we have to worry about right now. It has been a LONG 9 weeks in the NICU and its finally over! WAHOO!!

I love the 4th of July!!

We had such a great weekend up north for the holidy!! The weather was amazing, it was so nice to get out of the heat and enjoy cool weather for a couple days. Kingston played non-stop outside! The boys had such a great time playing with cousins and going to all of the festivities! Kingston loved the fireworks...Jimmy was confused! haha I can't believe how many people were there! It gets bigger and crazier every year! I think thats part of the fun! Can't wait til' next year!!

Playing in Kingston's truck! Kingston puts all of his fake guns in the back and says he is going hunting for elk and rabbits! Just like papa!

Mallory and King at the parade!

Waving to the horses! Kingstons favorite part!

Sisters and mom! We have such a good time when we are together!

Trying to keep James in the shade! It didn't last long!

This pic cracks me up! They are relaxin' in their shades and eating snacks! SO GROWN UP!

Me and the hubby at the fireworks!!! I love him sooo much!

I love to see the magic in all the kids eyes while they watch the fireworks!!
I also wanted to say thank you to my husband for serving our great country! We wouldn't have the freedoms we do without brave people like him! Thank you!!!! I love you so much and am proud to say you are my husband!
Here are a few pics from when Mike was in the Marines! These are from when he was deployed and on ship in the Philippines!
