So, here is a picture of our new little nephew with his very happy family. I am sure Michael and Amy are going to have lots of little hands to help them out. Amy did say that she was already told that poopy diapers are out of the question. If you would like to leave a message or read more about their family go to www.boeckman6.blogspot.com
We have a new little baby in our lives. Our nephew Xavier was born today weighing 7lbs 15oz and 19 inches long. I will try to post pictures soon, if I can get them off of my sister in-laws blog or when you go visit them Friday (hopefully). Kaden seem to be happy about the idea of having a new baby cousin.
Speaking of Kaden... Tonight, Nate and I went out to eat with some friends while Kaden stayed at grandpa and grandma's house...also there was cousin Miles. Well, I heard the story twice tonight...and actually it was the same story. First my parents told me and then Kaden while we were driving home.
Kaden and mommy's convesation (remember Kaden signs)...
Kaden - "cry"
Mommy - "Who cried?"
Kaden - "cousin"
Mommy - "Why?"
Kaden then punched himself then grabbed his ear and touched his head
Mommy - "You punched Miles in the ear and head?"
Kaden - "yes, cried."
Mommy - "You cried, why?"
Kaden - "Grandpa, no"
Mommy - "because grandpa said no?" (grandpa never says no)
Kaden - "yes."
Mommy - "did you say you were sorry?"
Kaden - "yes" then he hugged himself
Mommy - "you gave Miles a hug?"
Kaden - "yes."
We then of course talked with Kaden about not hitting. He loves to "play fight" especially with daddy and Miles. I don't think he quite understands that he can only "play fight" when the other person wants to as well. My dad said that when he went in the room to see why Miles was crying and Miles explained to him what happened Kaden was cracking up. So when my dad told him that hitting was a no-no it really hurt Kaden's feelings because he was just really excited to be sleeping with Miles and that's when Kaden started crying. So then they asked the boys to give each other a hug and I guess they laid next to each other hugging for about two minutes. I wish they took a picture (I could use that some day : ) ).
Kaden being silly Kaden showing off his new underwear...he gets to wear his underwear for awhile after he uses the big boy potty During the 4th of July celebrations, Kaden decided he wanted to get his face painted...but quickly changed his mind so mommy rescued him Daddy talked him into painting his leg...but daddy had to do it Since daddy couldn't draw Elmo, he spelled it instead, Kaden was impressed Kaden enjoying the 4th of July parade...waiting for candy to be tossed to him Hiding from the sun A couple of my friends and I on a girls weekend a few weeks ago
Baby girl, You are always on my mind. I miss you terribly, however when I see your pictures I can't help but smile. You have a beauty that I am in total awe of and it will never be forgotten. I get lost in you big beautiful eyes when looking at your pictures. I pray every night that you can still feel all of the love that we have for you. I hope you can hear the bedtime stories your big bubby picks out for you and that you receive the kisses we send to you in Heaven. You are our love. Your brother has dedicated a new song to you "You Are My Sunshine" and loves to sing it to your picture. Isn't he such a wonderful singer : )!!! I just wanted to let you know that I will ALWAYS, ALWAYS love you and that there isn't a day that goes by that you don't cross my mind. You and the love I have for you will be forever be engraved in my heart. We are so blessed to have such a beautiful and special angel watching over us. Thank you.
First of all, I am sorry that I haven't posted much lately. I just haven't been in "the mood." I have a lot on my mind...as always and I have just been trying to RELAX.
Our fourth was great. We spent time with family, went to our local celebration including a carnival and fun activities. We went to a monkey show, that Kaden absolutely loved, he was even able to take a picture with one of the monkeys. When asked what monkeys like to eat, Kaden signed apples. I thought that was kind of funny. Boy, he got really upset when the monkeys would go back into the trailer and he would have to wait for another to come out. I have pictures to post, but I don't have the energy right now to do it. Nate's birthday was the fifth, we went out to eat and had cake and ice cream. Sunday, Nate's family came down and we celebrated some more. That was our weekend.
So now for the news. After thinking about when I actually wanted to post this, I decided I would just do it now (although, honestly I am second guessing my decision). Nate and I found out on Father's day that I am pregnant. It was a total surprise, although the time leading up to finding out I really thought it could be a possibility. I am really nervous but at this time I am hopeful that everything will be fine, how could it not be??? I am sick ALL day, something I didn't experience with Kaden or Ava. I really do not know what to think or feel at this time. I do believe that God knows his plan, and hey, I can't argue with that.
So that is it, that's our life...Nate's one year older, Kaden thinks monkeys rather eat apples then bananas , and me...well I am pregnant.
March 31st is Congenital Diaphragmatic Hernia Awareness Day. Please wear turquoise this day for Kaden and all of the other's who have been diagnoised with this birth defect.
Jan. 31, 2008 to May 7, 2008 You are in our hearts and will be forever. We love you baby girl and miss you so much.
Our Big Boy
We love you bubby.

Special Angel In Heaven
There's a special Angel in Heaven that is a part of me. It is not where I wanted her but where God wanted her to be.
She was here but just a moment like a night time shooting star. And though she is in Heaven she isn't very far.
She touched the heart of many like only an Angel can do. I would've held her every minute if the end I only knew.
So I send this special message to the Heaven up above. Please take care of my Angel and send her all my love. -Author unknown
A WALK TO REMEMBER
I walk to remember the steps you'll never take. I carry you with me as I firmly plant my feet. Our trek started long ago, before my belly swelled. You were a love that grew-like butterfly wings that beat. Your gentle flutters than became kicks upon which I would dwell. And I would talk to you, sweet babe, about the world you soon would meet. The sun always shown upon us then-when you were in my womb. And I was eager to show you the world that would have been your home. How you'd have loved the sun shining-blue skies without a cloud. The autumn leaves turning-the snow falling all around. The flowers in the summer,would have filled your eyes with smiles. And the rain that might have fallen would have caused you great surprise. You would have traveled far with me-holding me by the hand. And I'd have shown you all I could-more than I can imagine. You hold my heart tightly now, as thought we're holding hands. How far we've traveled, little one-and my life with you has been sweet. For I carry you in my heart as I firmly plant my feet.
I have four wonderful, beautiful children. Three are here on earth with us, the other received her wings and is now in Heaven watching over us. I take pride in my children, they are the strongest people I have ever met. I have been blessed to be a part of their lives. I am TRULY grateful that God chose my husband and I to love these children. I have never known a greater love than a mommy's love.
THE CHOSEN ONES I had a dream the other night. It came to me so clear. I stood before the throne of God,afraid to come too near. God said to me, "I hear your prayers. There are answers you can't find. I brought you here to talk to me and help to ease your mind. "I said,"Well, yes, God, I am upset...About my special one. This punishment is awfully harsh...Whatever have I done?" God looked at me and shook his head, He said, "My Dear, you've got it wrong. I sent this special child to you because you are so strong. I searched and searched to try and find someone with a love so rare. Parents so unselfish they could give him that special care. I try to save my special gifts,like those you're speaking of,for a special kind of parents I call the 'Chosen Ones. 'Of all the ones to choose from,I know I've got it done...Parents who deserve my best,an honor you have won." -Unknown
