Three on Thursday

My dear friend Amy asked if anyone wanted to join her in a Three on Thursday blogging adventure. Basically, a way of getting the blog juices flowing by posting three photos every Thursday. I jumped on the chance because I've been slacking on my blog for quite awhile and I thought this would give me a good jump start. Life is busy! In fact, it's so busy that I missed last week. But, this week I've found a few minutes to put a post together. Hopefully it will be a continuing trend! 

Carson started basketball 2 weeks ago. He really likes it and we've enjoyed watching him. He's getting good at dribbling (while running down the court) and passing to his teammates. His also been doing some ice skating with Trevor, his reading is amazing and he's started taking spelling tests at school.

This is red man, at least that's what he wanted to be referred to last week when we had some baking to do and he was wearing all red. He was pretty excited to put on his "baking shirt" and he's quite the helper in the kitchen. We made muffins, a cake and some pizza dough for Pizza Friday! He's officially been tested (he passed!) and is registered for Kindergarten. Yikes! And he's going to start soccer with some of his school friends next week.

This little squirt turned 4 months old last week. So much to say about him. He's 17.9 pounds and 26.5 inches long. Compared to his brothers he's just a little heavier then Declan (our smallest) at 4 months and he's the longest by a half inch to Carson. Bennett weighed 22 pounds at 4 he was big. Maddox has been busy lately. He found his toes, drools like a faucet, no longer wants to be rocked to sleep, he laughs and he loves to suck on his hands. Oh, and he's a crappy napper. The other boys were fantastic nappers sleeping anywhere from 2 to 3 hours for most, if not all, naps. In fact Bennett and Declan still do (yes, I'm lucky!)This little bugger is lucky to make it 90 minutes and most times (like right now....he's pissed I haven't picked him up yet, guess he won't go back to sleep...darn!) he slept for a whopping 45 minutes. Good thing he's so cute!

As for the rest of us....Bennett is wearing underwear and I can't get him to poop on the potty but he has very few accidents and wakes up from nap and bedtime dry 95% of the time. I'm shocked by it and very giant step closer to having only one in diapers. Trevor and I have been running. I ran for 20 minutes straight the other day. I've never done that before....I've never run a mile before without stopping. It's weird, to actually enjoy running...I always thought only crazy people did that. I usually have a ten minute period during my workout where I wonder why I'm doing this but that passes and I feel great and energetic and amazed that I'm actually doing it. My goal is to run a 5k in May with my friends, we'll see!
