Been a while

Wow where do I begin, it has been that long LOL!

Well Liam is doing well. He does the army crawl everywhere and is in to everything. We went back to the doc for another followup onhis toe and his Dr. says it is doing well. We will not have to go back until April 1st when they may fit him for a brace to help support his leg due to his pseudarthrosis. He also had a regular check up and is doing great. He is a lil behind in his development, but it is expected when you have a cast for most of the first 7 months of life. He is also a lil chunker butt at 19.8 lbs. What can I say the boy likes to eat anything and everything LOL. He is sleeping in his own bed most nights all night (makes for a sad mommy), he just up and decided on day it was the thing to do. All and all he is a fun loving lil man and makes me laugh, even at 2:30 in the morning ( yeah he decided last night it would be fun to play at that time with Lexi, who was also awake)

Oh Lexi, she is a lil stinker for sure. She all of a sudden had a growth spurt, overnight I swear. She is still a tinly lil thing but tall, I am thinking she will be just like Noah, tall and slender. Her favorite pasttime is making messes and not being able to clean them up because she is still playing with it, Oy! She also still loves her lil bubbers (Liam) and spends most days playing and chatting with him, and he loves her right back. I am going to enjoy it while it last because I am sure they will turn in to Noah and Owen and argue 24/7. She does like to help me out a lot too, she loves to help cook and bake, she says that licking the spoon is her job and we shouldnt tell the boys.

Owen is doing great. He is still excelling in his reading and is now reading at a K level when they really only should be at E! I am very proud of him. He does have a lil problem with being able to really comprehend and retell the story but his teacher and us are working on it together to help him through. He is doing really well in all other subjects to and continues to amaze us with how well he does in school. We had a lil spell after the holidays when he went back to school with grumpiness and whininess, but hopefully have it figured out and our happy lil guy is back for good.

Noah is doing well also. We have had to crack down on him and his schoolwork. He was starting to rush through things and bringing home grades that were not Noah like, but he is working on it and is doing well. He had his eyes checked last week and will now be sporting some spectacles while in school, guess he was blessed with his daddys eyes LOL. He is very excited to get them too, I guess he wants to see. He has been helping every now and then with things around the house and even wanted to make both his and Owens lunches this morning, so I let him at it and he did a great job.

Jason and I are doing great. We are enjoying being able to eat dinner everynight as a family, one good thing of being on the 12-8 shift. He turned 31 last Friday so we went out to eat, just the two of us, for the first time in a very long time, it was nice. I am thinking we need to do it more often.

I am also excitd to announce that my big sis is having another baby after 7 yrs and I couldnt be more happier for her. Congrats to you big sis! Love ya!

I promise to update this more often too LOL

Happy Birthday Noah!

He turned 10 today and I still cant believe it. I look back at the last 10 yrs and am suprised how fast it went. I can still remember on New Years Eve before I had him everyone asking me how I was and if I felt anything, becasue they all wanted me to have the first baby of the millenium, he has other plans. I went to work on Jan.1st and worked like I never had before, who knew that he would finally be ready to come the next day. We went in early the next morning and at 1:02 in the afternoon I became a mom. It is amazing how the littlest, sweetest lil man changes your life forever, and I wouldnt have it any other way. Some of the best things I remeber about him was that he always loved creamer in his Sprite, he used to call his umbrella his younger brother (but never called his younger brother an umbrella), he liked to go to Marys house and play with all the kitties (I think we named him right, as he has a love for animal), racing in his Gator with his friend Rachel in her Barbie Jeep down the road. There are many more of these great silly things he did, but I will cry if I think about them (I am such a sap). He had grown to be a great kid and trys to get along with everyone, even his siblings. I am very proud to call him my son and love him more each day. Oh and dont tell him he is my favorite Monkey LOL.

He had a great birthday and a great party. He decorated his own cake the way he wanted it and actually helped me bake it and the cupcakes. He got a digital camera and a Wii game from us. He also got a few games, shirts and a Gift card to GameStop that I am sure he will use the first chance he gets. Thanks to everyone who came and he thanks you for the great gifts.
