As a mom surrounded by three little boys... I am overwhelmed with love, kisses and snuggle hugs! It is such the life, one I didn't know could be so amazing, one with constant chaos and fun! When I had my third little boy... I learned that God definitely has a sense of humor and that he loves me so much that he has entrusted three precious boys to me to raise to love and know him, to put him first and to lead their families and wives someday. I mean as "girlie" as I am and as much as I love "pink" I would be crazy to say I didn't want a little girl someday. Someone to dress up in smocked dresses (thank god for smocked jon jons for my boys), bows and tutus. Someone to go shopping with to get her first boy/girl dance dress, Someone to get my nails done with (thank god for my girlfriends) and Someone to plan a wedding one day with (obvi). But here I am. God knows best, right? And so I'm starting to agree with him on the boy/girl decision... I mean First of all, if I had a daughter, we would be broke. It would all be spent on her wardrobe of tutus, shoes (obvi), dresses and fun bows/flower hats. Second, I am learning the amazing relationship between a mother and a son. It is far more special that I could have ever imagined. The words "I love you mommy" melt my heart and will NEVER EVER get old. Kissing my boys boo boos away (the multiple ones we have a day), playing in the mud (yes, mud... its a favorite of theirs - never did I think I would LOVE to do this like I do... so glad its so good for rejuvenating our skin too - added bonus :o)) and pretending to be superheroes and fly all over the house all make me feel like I'm a real supermom! Their sweet hugs, kisses and smiles are music to my ears and I am in awe of how blessed I am everyday!! And so now here I am... a mom of all boys! And with all my prayers about having all boys and how did this fit into my life story, I am beginning to understand just how important my job really is. I have three little boys to raise to be the most amazing men who will one day take care of someone else's daughter. I have the job of teaching them to respect, praise and honor women. I am learning that my job is still about the daughters, just in a different way. I so badly want to teach my boys that emotions are okay. The answer isn't (always) to hit. That gifts and thoughtfulness are necessary in a romantic relationship. I want to raise my boys to be loving and strong men of god who will be amazing husbands and lead their families to our heavenly father some day. What can I say... it seems like I have my work cut out for me... first I think I need to focus on how not to throw your food on the floor during meal times.. but its baby steps, right?! So as a mommy of all boys... what can I say... I feel beyond blessed!!

My sweet Knox is taking after his older brothers thats for sure as he's growing like a weed!! He is quickly trying to catch up and be like his big brothers and is now weighing in at 11lbs 7oz (40%) and is 23 inches long (50%). He is now sleeping 12 hours 7:30-7:30, eating 5-6 ounces every 3 hours during the day and melting my heart over and over again!! I am beyond obsessed with him as are his daddy and big brothers. What can I say... we are so in love with our new family of five!!
Well he may have started out itty bitty tiny 5 weeks early... but he's a growing boy thats for sure! Knox weighed in at 8lbs 10oz (25%) and was 21.5 inches long (30%) and he literally is sleeping from 11-7 at just 4 weeks old. His older brothers are beyond obsessed with him (still after 4 weeks - god is so good)! And we are just adjusting to life with three little boys under the age of 4 1/2. It is constant chaos with three little boys but my sweet angel Knox barely ever cries even when he's hungry he patiently waits and sucks on his hand and he's sleeping 8 hours straight already. Looks like he is definitely going to be my laid back third child... guess God really doesn't give us any more than we can handle. We are so blessed and we love you more than words Knoxie pooh!!!
Christmas 2012 is one we will never ever forget thats for sure!! My sweet precious Knox came 5 weeks early and so he made it just in time to celebrate christmas... talk about the most perfect and best gift ever!! The boys were estatic of course that Knox came out with a "tallywacker" as Philip told everyone... they prayed and prayed their little hearts out for a brother! Looks like they must have been on the good list as they got a new baby brother and so much more. Spiderman and Jake and the neverland pirates were tops on the boys wish lists this year and they got it all and more! What can we say... we are beyond blessed!!! I love my new precious family of five... just me and my boys!!

We are beyond blessed and excited to announce the precious birth of our sweet son Knox Buckler Brosseau. He was born on December 10, 2012 at 10:57pm and weighed 5lbs 13oz and was 19 1/2 inches long. Although we had a challenging start with a short stay at the NICU (as Knox decided he couldn't wait any longer to meet his big brothers and came early at 35 weeks... great rehearsal dinner material by the way)... we are now all home and doing great!! Our hearts are so full and I feel so blessed to be surrounded by all my precious boys (and as I used to tell everyone when I was 3... guess me and God really did have a plan for me to be a Princess forever). Knox is such a blessing to our sweet family of five and his big brothers are of course beyond ecstatic to add another brother to the Brosseau chaos! Philip had prayed throughout my entire pregnancy for another brother... and even said that if it was a girl... "well that we would just have to tell Jesus to take her back b/c he wanted a brother." So here's to our precious little blessing Knox, the most perfect and best christmas present ever and of course to no take backs! We love you Knox!!!!
