So...I haven't wanted to post this on here until I was really sure I could finish...but I am training for a half-marathon! The race is April 9th. My older sister and I also want to do a half sometime this summer as well. This morning I ran 6 miles! Woohoo! I've been so blessed to have great friends to run with, who motivate me, meet at my house, and make sure I just do it!
Carson turned 3 months old yesterday. The time is flying by. The more kids I have the more I wish time would slow down. As of Wednesday, he can roll from his stomach to his back. It took Addie and Macie four months to do that. Well, he's a boy! He now weighs 11 lbs 2 oz. That's big for my kids! Haha!
And here is just a cute picture of Macie saying "Cheese!" for the camera. She's getting to be so big. She can say 15 to 20 words now, and is starting to sit on the potty from time to time. I honestly do love my job. Being a mom to three great kids, and wife to one fabulous, supportive husband IS THE BEST.
Having sisters around the house is so much fun. It's easy to see how much they love one another. Macie and Adelyn will play and play and play together. Here are a few cute pictures from January and February. I love my blondes!
This weekend we were in Virgina. Jason had an interview for a residency there (which he felt went well, by the way) and we stayed in a semi-posh hotel for cheap. Well, we had a KING BED. And it was SO NICE.
So, thanks, King, for making your appearance.
And thanks, Green Bay, for winning the Superbowl and making my husband a happy happy man.
Last night I woke up around 3 am to feed Carson, who was sleeping beside me. Macie was sleeping next to Jason, who had somehow suckered him into allowing her to sleep in our bed. This isn't too uncommon in our house, we're a family of snugglers. After Carson was finished eating, Addie woke up and asked to come in our bed, too. I was firm and she did spend the rest of the night in her own bed, but that isn't always the case. While the four of us snuggled together in bed, to help me fall asleep, I started writing this poem in my head and finished it this morning. I thought it'd be something fun to share. Oh yeah, and Jason doesn't usually snore, but it has been known to happen! :)
When we were first married Being close was our goal Head on his shoulder We slept on a Full
Welcome Baby Number One Skinny body, blonde head Co-sleeping meant sleep! And she slept in our bed
A few months of that My body soon shouted “I need my space! This Full is too crowded!”
Enter Baby Number Two And I was quite keen On getting my rest Mom, Dad, Baby and new Queen
Much sooner than later Came Baby Number Three We bundled him up tight Between Husband and me
And now that they’re older They all sleep alone But as parents, we’re softies And we have been known…
To wake up in the morn With three kids beside us After the kicking and rolling To grin and delight us
Late last night I awoke With an elbow in my face A leg on my stomach Feet all over the place!
A baby to my left Two sweet blondes over there My husband was snoring An entire family of Hair!
And year after year As the kids keep on growing Our bed, sadly, does not And now Queen’s overflowing!
So, King, if you could Make an appearance tonight Rescue my family, Solve our snuggling plight!
