Christmas has already come and gone and we had such a good time!!
All Kaden wanted was a kitchen from Santa and he was really excited he got it. he did ask where Santa was and why he was not there when he woke up. :) But he has really enjoyed his kitchen stuff and the little animals he got. The boy that comes out in him is he is cooking the animals.
Kline is getting so big! He just had his 6 month check up and he weighs 20 pounds 8 ounces!! He is getting so big and getting such a wonderful personality! He talks to us all the time and
just starting to attempt the rolling over! he hasn't done it yet, since he is so big I think, but getting there! He loves his jumper and can do it for hours! It is a good workout for him! :) but he loves it!
Kaden and Kline also got a huge playground from their grandpa!
Kaden loves it and wishes he could play on it each day! I keep telling him when it gets warmer he can. It is a daily conversation!

Below are pictures of my sweet boys from the past few months! They are getting big I tell ya! :)

As 2011 approaches, I am writing down some new year goals for myself. Yes, the usual, lose this baby weight, manage our money better, be a wonderful mother to our kids, there is one more that is on my heart right now... Recently a tragedy happened to a young mom that left her 2 daughters without their mom and a newborn son that never got the chance to meet his mom. The story of this lady is a true inspiration on her relationship with the Lord and her family! I think that one of the reasons this tragedy happened to this wonderful lady is to bring people closer to God and realize the amazing things He has to offer!
My goal for 2011 is to be a better Christ follower and example for my kids and family! I want to open my bible more and talk to God on a daily basis! I want to leave this earth with the inspirations Brie just left. I never knew her or her family but my heart is yearning for what she had with our Maker.

Oh wow...

It has been over 2 months since I have updated my blog...needless to say, we have been VERY busy! With having 2 little guys now and getting back to work and the swing of things, I havent had a night to not have anything to do until tonight! It has been awhile!

Kaden has been doing good, being a great big helper and loving his cousin Boston! He does great with Kline and is very protective over him at 'Coles!

Kline has been getting SO big! He was in the 94% at 8 weeks for his weight! He doubled his birth weight in 8 weeks! He is such a good, happy boy and LOVES to eat! You can tell by what he weighs now! The little guy resembles his big brother in so many ways, especially when he has a hat on! He doesnt have near to close the amount of hair Kaden had, but other than that, they look pretty similar! It is crazy!

The last weekend of summer we went to Ruidoso with my family and had such a great time! This was a family picture taken of all of us, the first since the hospital after Kline was born!

Keenan is staying busy with Westover Park football and school and then helping with Randall football. He is still loving coaching and I am so happy about that! I am back in full swing of things at Tascosa with my new classes (all Audio/Video Production) and cheerleading. I have also started working on my masters through Eastern New Mexico! So again, we are very busy between school, practices, games and me working on my masters!

Heather just took Klines 3 month pics and they are up on her website under client photos and children! :) Take a look. Look around at the rest of her pics...she is pretty talented!

I promise, I will try to be lovely sister Heather always gets on to me for not updating this enough! :)

Hope all else is well with you!

June 27th...

Well on June 27th, 2010, we welcomed Mr. Kline Jackson Hooker to our family!
He came 2 weeks early and we were very suprised since my water broke. But he got here by God's grace and hands and is doing so good! I had to have a C-Section and ended up that the cord was around his neck 4 times and there was a true knot in the cord! He was a very blessed little guy and we are giving God all the glory! He weighed 7 lbs 4 oz and was 19 inches long. He didnt have much hair but had very long fingers and toes! :)

Kaden is doing so good with him and just loves him and protects him! We are all doing good and getting used to having another little guy around the house! We are enjoying our last few weeks of summer and then we will be extremely busy with school and everything that goes with it! Here are a few pics my sister took of that special day and of my sweet boys and family! :) love to all...

Happy 3rd birthday Kaden!!

3 years ago today, me and Keenan headed to the hospital VERY early to finally meet our little guy, Kaden James. After a rough start, he has grown up to be such a big boy and such a love bug! He can always make his mom and dad laugh at just about anything and has the biggest heart for a little 3 year old I have ever seen. He loves his best friend, cousin, Boston but can fight just like a brother with him. He can always make me smile when I have had a rough day at work, just seeing him, makes my day! Now that our next adventure is soon going to begin, Kaden is going to be a big brother, I cannot wait to see him with his little brother Kline. He already talks to him, rubs my belly and gives him a little "pound"... :) I love this sweet boy more than I could have ever imagined and I am so thankful God has blessed us with this sweet boy. Thank you God for giving us this blessing on this very special day! Happy 3rd birthday sweet boy. We love you -
love, mom and dad

Here are some pics from the past 3 years...

Happy 3rd Birthday Kaden!! We love you!!!

Spring Break

Here are a few pics to start out of Kaden and Keenan... Kaden is getting so big!!

My sweet niece Emmerson Dawn Ladd arrived on February 18th, 2010! She is already 1 month old! She is the sweetest little thing and I just love holding her and talking to her! Here are a few pictures of sweet Emme!

We also have been working on Kaden's big boy room and getting Kline's nursery put together! My sister Heather came over and helped out a lot! My mom came over and painted Kaden a chalkboard wall in his room!!! He loves it. They both helped clean out closets and clothes since we have so many between Mason, Boston and Kaden hand me downs and then just the cutest new things Gamma just had to get! :) But we got it all done and organzied and I feel so much better!!!
Kaden loves his new big boy bed and big boy room! Here are a few pics...

Now that spring break is coming to a close, that means that the end of school is closer and Kline's due date is closer! Yay!!! Hope everyone has had a nice and relaxing break!
