Just catching up

So, We've been pretty busy lately. I've been meaning to do a new post for ages, but just haven't had the time! I finally have some now, but it's not going to be the greatest post, and the pictures aren't in order 'cause it's a nice day out and I want to go out with my boys. Can you really blame me?
Braden and Noah Christmas morning. Jack was sleeping, so we didn't get any Christmas morning pictures of him.

Braden in front of our tree. We have vaulted ceilings, so we got a super expensive, thus REALLY nice, artificial 9 footer. It will last forever and whenever we move we're just going to have to have high ceilings there, too.

Andrew (on the left) and Bryan. They're my twin 17 month old half-brothers. My dad, Tami, and the kids all came to visit for a few days after Christmas. It was pretty nice!

Baby Jack. He's three months old now (!) and weighs about 17 pounds. He's a big kid and a total sweetheart. He's been much easier than Braden and Noah so far because he sleeps so well! He's even happy when he's sick, although he doesn't look very happy in this picture. I've just been slacking at picture taking lately.

Noah sitting on Braden's bed. He's nowhere near ready to move out of his crib, but he sure likes to play on Braden's bed.

Sophia and Braden. Sophia is my 5 year old half sister. She's like a girl version of Braden, their personalities are so similar!

I said we've been busy lately. What that really means is that besides Christmas and Dad's visit, that we've been sick. Braden got sick just before New Year's. Then Noah got sick. Poor kid always gets sick worse than Braden. It was so bad I took him to the doctor's because I was afraid he had strep. The doctor was also concerned and did a test. Nope! Just a really bad sore throat from a regular old cold. Thank goodness it was not strep! He's finally just about back to normal. Jack picked up the bug, but he only ever just gets stuffed up and does a little bit of coughing and sneezing, not bad at all. Then I got sick Sunday. I'm not sure what it was, but it was horrible! I spent Sunday night writhing in agony and my muscles did a weird tightening thing and my stomach was bothering me, then Monday rolls around and I'm feeling decent, and today I feel totally fine. Strange. Kevin, the lucky dog, has not gotten sick and shows no signs of becoming sick. So we're finally all healthy and that makes me happy.

Well, gee, it sounds like you've had an exciting couple of weeks! I'm glad to know that everyone is fine and back to normal.

You're right about Jack being a big kid. I love all his chunks! The boys are growing up so much, I can hardly believe it. It just doesn't seem that long ago that Alton and Braden were tiny babies and we were in your apartment watching them learn how to pick up their head during tummy time. Where has the last 4 years gone??

Thanks for the post. I might consider posting on my blog some time this year. =)

Hey, what a coincidence! We were sick this weekend too! Sophie and I had a mild cold, and it sounds like you had something similar to Tony. Leah has been the lucky dog at our house! Cute pics, glad you got to see your dad. we'll have to do dinner again soon!
