My Cute Kids!

I got the girls and Bode's pictures taken when Bode was 2 weeks old. I think they turned out pretty stinkin cute! Unfortunatly the girls wouldn't sit still long enough to get one of all 3 of them together :(. But I still think what we got turned out really good. Sorry about the picture overload, but it's too hard to pick a favorite to post.

Bode Bryant Mathews

Now that our sweet baby boy is almost 6 weeks old, I finally feel like I have time to sit down and blog about him. Bode Bryant Mathews was born on August 9 @ 7:55 AM weighing 6 lbs. 9 oz. and 18.5 inches long. He weighed as much as Bailee and Berklee combined at birth. We had a scheduled C-section and everything turned out perfectly. It was such a relief to finally have a normal pregnancy and birth, and to actually get to take our baby home with us a couple of days after we had him. The girls have adjusted well to him and cannot give him enough kisses throughout the day. He has been such a joy in our home, and we couldn't love him more. Here are a few pictures from the happy day!

My Baby Turns 3

Last Saturday we celebrated the birth of our sweet Brinlee Jo. I can't believe it has already been 3 years. At the time of her birth I didn't know if I was going to make it to the next hour, or day, but here I am 3 years later. I am so thankful for the opportunity I had to have Brinlee in my life, even though it was so short. I am so glad she never will have to experience any trials in her life, and that she has the golden ticket into heaven that we all strive for daily. I am so thankful for her 3 siblings who have blessed my life so much, and who bring joy to me every day. I am so thankful for the knowledge of have of eternal families, and look forward to the day when I will get to hold my beautiful daughter in my arms again.
We celebrated Brinlee's birthday by just spending time as family. We took 3 balloons to her grave and sent them free, as we always do. Then we drove to Preston and had a picnic in the park and played with our girls. It was a great day to reflect on all we have, and our sweet daughter.
Happy Birthday baby girl. I love you so much.

I know I am a slacker when it comes to blogging, but I guess better late then never. For Easter this year we went to Salmon for the weekend with my parents, and two sisters and their families. My Grandma & Grandpa Hume live up there and we have made it a traditon to go visit them every Easter. The weather actually cooperated and we got to enjoy a little sunshine for the first time this year. The girls are starting to really get excited about things, so holidays just keep getting funner and funner. Here are some pictures from our weekend. Sorry about the picture overload, but it's hard to choose between pictures when your kids are as cute as mine. :) Playing outside with Daddy

Decorating Easter eggs was a lot of fun. As expected Bailee threw her eggs in the the dye while Berklee placed them gently in. They both did not quite understand that you couldn't eat the eggs with the shell on and both ended up with multi colored mouths by the time we were finished.

Surprise! Surprise!

For those of you who haven't already heard we had our 20 week ultrasound yesterday to find out the sex of our baby. I've had a feeling the entire pregnancy that it was a boy, but I wasn't really sure why. I didn't know if it was just because we are due for a boy after 3 girls, or because I wanted to keep up with the Mathews tradition of having 3 girls and a boy. Bryant's brothers all have 3 girls and a boy and so I didn't want to break tradition. Well we found out that we are having a BOY!... and we couln't be any happier. Even though either of us really didn't care what sex it was just that he/she would be healthy. It looks like all the girl clothes that I have will just have to be stored away for awhile, and I will have to go shopping. I'm not quite sure how to take care of a boy, I've never had brothers, and my 2 little girls are far from being tom boys. I'm sure I will figure it out, but I know one thing for sure I am going to be one busy momma! Wish us luck!

20 months

I took the girls to get their pictures taken last week. My sister Aubri went with me and I'm pretty sure that I wore her completely out by the end of the day. The girls were a little dramatic all day starting out with Berklee freaking out at the portrait studio. She was seriously inconsolable. The only way she would let them take pictures of her was if I was holding her, and that is why you can see my thumb in one of her pictures. We unfortunately didn't get any good ones of them together. It was pretty hilarious trying to take them though the photographer had a sheet draped over me while I held them. It didn't quite turn out how I was hoping it would, but we still ended up getting a few good pictures of both of them in the end. I can't beleive how big they are getting, and how quickly they are growing up. Thanks for being such good sister and such a great Auntie Aubri. We really appreciated your help!
