beckam | 5 years

My sweet little Beckam is FIVE. 
And suddenly I am cursing time for taking away my babies. 
Luckily... I have some amazing big boys that love their mom to pieces, and that makes it all a little bit better. 
It is always shocking to me how different kids are... that come from the exact blood line and the same upbringing. 
Beckam is very much his own little person.
He is very care free, imaginative, sweet and explorative. 
He also has great hair and eye lashes. 
And that dimple! 

Beckam can spend hours in a room of legos, or blocks, or magnatiles and create the coolest things I've ever seen. 
Things that I probably couldn't even build. 
And he also comes up with a purpose or a plan for it. 
The best part... if his amazing inventions break, he rarely gets upset.
He sees it as an opportunity to build it again, but even cooler than the first time. 
And every day it is something different. A new invention or architectural genius. 
He does however tend to break a lot of lego masterpieces. 
In his eyes, he wants to build something cooler, which is unfortunate for the generally type A family members of his,
The kid is obsessed with his baby brother... who I suppose I should stop calling "baby".
He can't get enough of him, and likes to touch his face (?).
This usually results in Bennett's eye getting poked.... seriously, at least once a day.
He also likes to get Bennett to agree with him on any number of topics by just getting him to say "ok."
They giggle lots, and I just love it. 
He is still very much so allergic to eggs.
Peanuts too, but not as severe.
It is great that he is old enough to kind of understand the importance of asking before he eats something, but also terrifying that eggs are in SO many things.
Let's just pray that he doesn't ever need the epi-pen I am always toting around.
The sense of humor on this boy is the best.
He loves to make people laugh and will do almost anything to make people happy.
He seriously loves to laugh.
And it is the BEST little laugh!
We have been so blessed with the sweet boy.
I am so proud at the young man he is becoming.
His free spirit makes me realize he will probably not live on the farm forever... but he has informed me I get to go to college with him and pick out his wife... so... I'll take it.
As he likes to tell me every night.... i love you 100.

brody | 7 years old

Since Beckam has a birthday tomorrow, I figured that it was only fitting that I do Brody's birthday post from February. After all, this blog is basically my kids baby book. (Boy have I fallen off the blog wagon!)
Brody, Brody, Brody. 
What an amazing kid.
This boy will do great things!
He is driven, a great worker, and a little boss. 
He needs to be kept busy, or else he is getting into trouble. 
I can always count on him to help me work in the yard and garden.
His specialty is driving his 4-wheeler with the leaf rake and picking up all of the cut grass. 
He is also an excellent gardener, and has quite an array of vegetables growing currently. 
I am hoping that these traits, along with his love of helping all around the farm, means that he will one day become a farmer and never leave me. 
He enjoys bossing around his brothers. 
Beckam has not been quite as eager to follow along recently, and that causes a ridiculous amount of fighting. 
When they aren't fighting though, they have so much fun together... and he is working on letting Beckam have a say in what they are doing. 

Brody is a huge help with Bennett too, and Bennett just adores him.
I love watching him sing to Bennett at night time, and do their own special bedtime routine. 
Brody has a bit of his mother (ahem) in him also and a few weeks ago when he saw a little video clip of Bennett as a baby, he nearly cried at how little he was and how fast he is growing. 
Their bond is cute.
Bennett still can't get away with stealing Brody's legos though. Brody makes sure that those are built and hidden in a special location where they can't be reached or destroyed. 
Boy are we blessed to have this dude leading our pack of boys.
Being a big brother is a big responsibility and he does it well. 
This guy is smart! 
He digs math, science and history the most, and really enjoys his homeschool group.
We are so proud of all of the hard work he puts in to school and learning. 
 I can't wait to see where this next year takes him, and all of the new accomplishments he makes. 
He is growing up way too quick for my liking.
His two middle bottom teeth have come out, and a top middle tooth is currently loose.
Before long we will have those super awesome adolescent stages happening. :)

Boy is this kid loved!
A special dude, with a big heart, and a huge fan base.

We LOVE you Brody!
