Easton is the cutest little boy we know! He rightfully earned the nickname 'BEASTY' when he was a baby and it has stuck with him. He is such a sweet little mommy's boy and we are ALL at his Beck and call. Easton loves cars, snacks, and playing outside. He is talking up a storm and it seems like he learns something new every single day. He is at such a fun age. We LOVE LOVE LOVE this little guy!


Ainslee is the baby and she just turned ONE!! This child is a handful!!! She hasn't quite grown out of the difficult phase.....that she has been in since she was born, but we still find ways to find her sweet side! Hearing her baby giggles and watching her discover & learn new things make all the whininess......just a little easier to deal with. Aaaahhh, we love this Ainslee Girl!!


Oh our cute little Avery! With her blue eyes & blonde hair, she is one of the cutest 4 year olds around!! This girl is stubborn! She definitely keeps us on our toes. She is quite unpredictable, which makes for a lot of laughs! Avery is our TREAT-FREAK! We can always guess what is on her mind. My favorite thing about Avery is her smiles. She always has one for us no matter what and that makes everyones day just a little better. She attends preschool and says she doesn't like it, but secretly we know she does ;). We are so lucky to have this cute girl in our family! We can't get enough of her.

Kobe is our first child, born in 2004. He was 4 months early and weighed a whopping 1 lb. 4 oz.! We got to be with Kobe for 4 wonderful weeks. I feel so blessed to have been chosen to raise one of God's perfect children. We love him and thank Heavenly Father everyday that he is part of our family. We have a treasure in heaven.

Quinnie just turned 6! She is growing faster than we can keep up with! She loves going to first grade and is doing really well! She picks up on things very quickly and LOVES learning. She's seriously a sponge. Her favorite thing to do is write notes and draw pictures for her friends & family. You should see our continual stack of papers. Quinnlyn is creative & spunky & totally independant. We love her like crazy!

Little Buddy

Yes....I do have other children. So here is an update on Easton:

He has definitely gotten a bit more sassy & defiant....just like his sisters! He tells us no often, deliberately does things after we have told him not to, and is just becoming a little independent bugger!

However, he is still lots of fun! We could sit and watch him all day long...just being his silly self. We love getting him up in the morning because he is always just sitting on his bed waiting for us to tell him that he can get up. The minute we open his door, he says: "HI MOM! (or HI DAD!). He loves his dad and is always excited to see him when he gets home. Sometimes I wish I was gone all day just so I could get the 'welcome home' that Brett always gets :)!

Easton is day potty trained including nap time, and only wears a diaper (a cloth diaper actually.....because I didn't want to buy anymore disposables for him) at night. Sometimes he wakes up dry, but not often enough to let him wear undies to bed. He looks so cute with his little bum in those undies :). Potty training wasn't as difficult as I thought it would be thank goodness!

This kid never quits talking. Just ask anybody that has been around him. We get comments on his sweet little voice, and it's true, it is really sweet....but not when you have to listen to ALL DAY LONG!! He talks so loud too. We are constantly asking him to 'talk quietly' but he just needs to be heard I guess. During car drives he wants to know the name of every single store that he sees: "What's that store mom?" And boy oh boy, if we don't know what store he is talking about, he says 'NO WHAT'S THAT STORE!!!' He knows if we are truly listening or trying to tune him out.

Speaking of stores...he remembers the names of all the stores we go to and remembers exactly where they are. Costco, Walmart, CVS, HyVee, Mcdonald's (of course), Wendy's, Menard's, Hobby Lobby, Best Buy, etc. He's always quick to tell us exactly where we are going once he recognizes his surroundings.

Easton knows several letters of the alphabet and the sounds that they make. He says: LOOK! An 'M' for mom. He does the same for 'D' for dad, 'E' for Easton, 'A' for Ainslee, and 'O' for Octopus.

He LOVES his Ainslee and is really sweet to her. Often times he will quit playing long enough to rub her feet and baby talk her for just a second or two. Then he is back to playing. He really wants to pick her up by himself, but is good enough to wait for someone to help him. He can often get her to quit crying if he baby talks her and he is always willing to get me her diapers or anything else I need. He likes to 'pet' her (that is what he calls it) and always rubs her little head. Yes. He is a great big brother.

On the other hand, he is kind of a bratty little brother. He throws a fit and the girls always get into trouble when they make him cry. He is spoiled. So spoiled.

Easton is a pretty good eater and will eat fruit & veggies really well! He is a snacker too. Just like his sisters.

This kid loves to sing songs that come on the radio and he know a lot of them. If anyone else tries to sing we get yelled at: "DON'T SING, DON'T SING!". Like he thinks he is the boss or something.

Most of the time we call him Buddy. The girls were singing a song (Easton, Easton Bo Beaston) and he was quick to tell them that his name was NOT Easton.....'It's BUDDY'!

He gets scared easily. He doesn't like the dark and if we play monsters, he loves it but hates it. It's easy to freak him out and quite funny too.

He is seriously so cute. I think a lot like Jake too, bossy, ignores me, teases his sisters, good to Max (likes to sneak food to him) but doesn't talk all the time.
I love that he likes to sing by himself.
