100% potty time

Seriously could not be any more proud of The Jakester right now. Last night he made it through his first night in underwear! Not saying accidents won't happen, but it seems to me we might officially have one big boy completely out of diapers! He got up in the middle of the night to go on the potty and went back to bed. Then this AM he was SO PROUD...Joe gave him a treat of M&M's for breakfast...I mean seriously...this kid deserves it! (and we could always stand to pack some more meat on his bones)
Next up...Brock...he has definetly made the effort of attempting the potty. But we are not really understanding the WHOLE concept just yet. Totally in his own rush here.

Never would I have thought that I would love the mud so much. But I do, and it is not because I like it, but because the boys LOVE it. Endless entertainment...well, at least for about 30mins to an hour...but hey, I'll take it!

The other night when I was putting Jake to bed we got to talking more about Jesus and why we can't see Him. they heck to explain that one to a 3 year old. Well...I was honest...and told him a little about how we cannot see Him now but we will get to see Him when we go to heaven.
"What" Jake replied
"He is with us all the time now, like when you are scared and ask Him to be with you, but you just cannot see him."
Me: "uh-well, because he died on the cross for you and for me and now He is up in heaven and we get to see Him when we go there"
Jake: "I wanna go to Heaven"
"I know, you and me both...we will soon"
Jake: "I wanna go, but after nap time"

Melt my heart and trying not to laugh: "Ok, got it!"
Jake: "Love you mama...(blow a kiss)"

Definitely one tuck-in I hope to never forget!

boys and bugs

I always tend to forget how entertaining a bug can be for a little boy:

it's rodeo time

I am so glad we were able to squeeze in a quick trip to the rodeo this year. It was a little too short and a little too hectic, but I wouldn't expect anything different with the three boys at the age they are at right now on top of "kids get in free night"...opps...didn't get that memo...
Mimi and Papi were able to join us after work, which was a HUGE help. Jake and Brock both did the pony ride this year...last year Jake was WAY too tired and WAY too hesitant. The most brutal part was the waiting in line....attention span of zero...
We saw lots of animals...Brock was actually way more into them than Jake. And Holt was an amazing trooper the whole time. He stayed awake with Papi the whole time and then crashed in the baby Bjorn walking back to the car. The weather was PERFECT...thank the Lord...and all in all the boys had a fantastic time.

hello Joe look alike:

little giggles

Holt is SUCH a giggly baby...he LOVES to laugh at us...and he has a MAJOR tickle spot under his neck. It's awesome.
Just the other night I was able to catch him laughing at Jake and just this morning he was giving us the biggest belly these moments.

well hello

check out what we found waiting for us at the top of the stairs when Joe went up to do our late night checks on the boys:

How that was comfortable is beyond me...he takes after his daddy who can fall asleep anywhere. It's a Hornberger thing.

the babies

I have been meaning to get these pics up for a while Holt and his cousin baby Clay.
What fun all these guys will have growing up together! This was about a month they have both changed so much already!

And one of Mimi and Papi and their crew of grandsons!

adios winter

as the coldness (or something like that) leaves us we say good-bye to the sweet fires and cute sweaters and boots...ah hem...I mean handsome sweaters and, I just had to post these pics as a farewell to the winter.

And a sweet side note that I always want to cherish:
tonight as I was getting the boys ready for bed I over heard them all playing in Brock's room and talking to eachother. One of the things that I was so blessed to hear as I walked back into the room was Jake telling Holt "'re my best friend"
Then the major embarrassment that set in as soon as he looked up and saw me standing in the doorway with the biggest smile on my face. May I never forget these moments.

our little 3 month old

12 weeks...can you believe it? WOW!
This boy rocks...just like his brother's. He is totally sleeping through the night. We eats around7:30pm and wakes up around 7:30am. ahhhhh...bliss!
He is smiling and cooing like CRAZY! It is hilarious. We get a bunch of giggles from him too. I love it...sure does make things so much more worth it...I hate to say it, but it's true!
He loves it when his brother's are around. He gets so bored when it is just me...true story.
He is sitting up well in his Bumbo for about 10 mins at a time...and starting to hold his head up like a champ.
He is a big boy with lots of hair. He gets called a girl all the time...hahaha...but I am too scared to cut it, since I cut Brock's and his head ended up growing and his hairline (that I cut) did was awful!
To sum it all up we are all in love.
