Good Morning!

Sorry it's been a while since I have posted, we have been busy around here! I completed a 5K this past weekend! WOO HOO! My pace was only 11:40 but at least I finished! Next is a 10K hopefully in the fall. Joe is doing well and gets to call every few days which is nice! And now to who you really want to know about...

Ian is great! He convinced me he had a tummy ache this morning though so he is at home with me. And let me tell you he is NOT sick. I am such a sucker. He is getting so tall and looks so much like Joe!

Abbie Grace is definitely starting to look like a little girl and not a baby anymore. It's very sad for mommy though! Oh and I am no longer mommy, I am mom to her!

And Prince Evan is doing much better this week. As many of you know he has been sick since March. The dr's have tried different things but now they have him on antibiotics, steoroid puffer, and albuteral puffer. And his cough is finally getting better! Thank you Lord! He actaully slept from 8-5 last night which is the first time in about 10 days. I really needed the rest too. He still has big bright blue eyes that melt mommies heart!

Darth Vader Balloon

This balloon has scared me more times than I can count. As many of you know I am scaredy cat so this balloon is not good for me. I come around the corner and since it's as large as Ian I think someone is in the house. I really want to deflate it but I think Ian would be crushed!

Happy Birthday Ian!

We started the morning with the Happy Birthday song and ended it the same way! Ian was very excited about his special day! I was able to read to his class this morning and spend some extra time with him at school. Then tonight Grandma, Popie, and some friends came over to celebrate! It was a Darth Vader Star Wars party...we are really into the Jedi Knight thing:)

5 Months Old!

Here's Evan at 5 Months...weighing in at 18 pounds 14 ounces!

4 years old...already!?!?!

So tonight I was just thinking that at 6:14 am tomorrow I will have a 4 year old...me...with a 4 year old! Am I old enough to have a 4 year old? I really don't think I am. As I think back over these wonderful and challenging past 4 years a big smile comes to my face. Ian is the most precious little boy. He has more energy than most but has lots of smiles to go along with that energy! Tonight at small group a friend told me to tell Ian the story of when he was born. At first I wasn't sure what to say but then after everyone left and Ian was lying in bed I went in and told him the story of when he was born. I left out the 31 hours of labor part:) He thought it was lots of fun to hear how he was as small as Evan once. He especially liked hearing how Daddy was the first to hold him. He misses his Daddy a lot.
As most of you know Ian is a big talker. He talks pretty much non stop from the time he wakes up until he goes to bed and sometimes even when he sleeps. If he doesn't have anything to talk about he just makes up stories! This past Friday night he spent the night with Joe's parents and I missed his constant chattering so much! What a blessing we recieved 4 years ago in our little guy! Too bad they can't stay little forever!

SC Pics

I know these are out of order but here are some pics from our SC trip...

Cheesy Pics

Abbie Grace loves to say CHEESE. Whenever she sees the camera she immediately poses and says it! She and Ian had a popsicle after dinner tonight. She loves sitting next to her brother at dinner! If I could only get them to look at the camera at the same time!

I sure do love food!

Evan LOVES food. He enjoys nursing but he really likes food. He eats at least 3 containers per day along with rice cereal AND still nurses or gets a bottle 5-6 times a day. He kicked Abbie Grace out of the high chair today and now gets to sit with us at the table. Tonight at dinner he had rice cereal, green beans, and peaches. He has rolls on top of his rolls! He doesn't even have ankles...just a roll where his ankle should be!
