These are really random Sorry but here is Drew since last seen till now!
Enjoy they are in no age order!

Life as a family of 4

So obviously I SUCK at updating this....... Let me try to get you all caught up.... I don't even know where to start.......we will start with the youngest and go to oldest!

Drew- Drew is now 4 months old! He is growing like crazy..... he weighs 15 pounds and is 25 inches long......which takes him our of the teen % to the 50%....He smiles ALL the time. Loves to coo and talk to you. He also loves to be in his jumperoo just like Charley did. He is soooo close to rolling over he just can't seem to figure out how to get is feet/legs over. He is going to be starting baby food as soon as Daddy brings in the high chair. He likes to go to bed awake and put his self to sleep....we try to rock or cuddle him and he gets cranky but as soon as you put him in his bed he streches out and coos hisself to sleep. He usually goes to bed around 9-930 and is up anytime between 3-5 am and up for day around 8. He sleeps all night off and on apparently depends on his mood. :)!

Charley- Charley is going to be 3 in 14 days!!!! I can't believe it!! He is growing up so fast and getting so independent. He still LOVES trains. It's all about the TRAINS around here. He weighs about 32 pounds and is 36 inches tall. We have been fighting him to stay in bed at bed time it is usually a 30-40 min task before he actually stays in bed and goes to sleep. We have to brush our teeth, go potty, read a book, go night night in mommy/daddy bed for 4 min, etc.  He still thinks Drew is pretty awesome. People ask if they can keep Drew and Charley tells them NO he is my Drewy! He also wants to play outside every chance he gets. WE HAVE BEEN WEARING BIG BOY PANTS FOR A MONTH NOW AND HAVE HAD NO ACCIDENTS! We only wear diapers a bed time! HE IS GETTING TOO BIG TOO FAST!!!

Mommy- I can't say there is a whole lot new with me! Lynne has convinced me to do 2 5K's with her. The 1st one was last Saturday and I pushed the boys in the stroller we finished right at 55 min. and then did another one last night which I walked 90% of without the boys and finished in 44 min. I'm still loving my job, learning lots of new things which is fun. Seems like I'm just trying to keep up with the boys takes most of my time! But I wouldnt have it any other way!! LOVE MY LIFE.

Daddy- I would say that Greg's main thing he would want me to post about him is that his NEW SHOP! It is almost done. I think they are suppose to be finished with it in the next couple day! I will post picture of shop as soon as Greg bring the camera back in to me!

Not much else going on that I can think of! Now I will do a post with Pictures of everything that I just talked about! ENJOY!

Hope all is well with everyone!

Maternity Leave

Well my maternity leave is almost up! I go back to work on Monday. I am not looking forward to leaving the boys but am EXCITED to go back to work! I know that the boys will be in good hands and have fun everyday! Charley has been begging to go to Barretts( Daycare) so that is reasssuring to know that he likes it there! I don't think Drew is going to care as long as someone changes and feeds him! I also know that Grandma (JoAnn) is getting tired of me being home cause she misses playing with Charley and has been telling me I need to go back to work so she can play with the boys!

Greg is still planning on taking another week off mainly because I didn't want to take the boys to daycare on my first day back to work. He says if the weather is going to be nice he may take another week! He has been constantly talking/throwing around how he want to build the new "shop"! We have signed a contract with a contrator to building it which they will start doing March 20th. It is going to be done by the end of that week. Spending a little more to have someone else do it but we have decided that it is the way to go so it gets done faster and Greg doesn't have to do the work. I'm ready for it to be done because I'm tired of listening to Greg talk/debate about how to do what! :)

Charley is still amazing us everyday! We have slowly started the potty training process..we haven't been pushing him to much since is he pretty good at telling us when he has to go. We put Big Boy undies on him after nap last night till bed  time (4 ish hours) and he didn't have any accidents. :) He still LOVES his trains and play or talks about them all the time. I'm sure he is excited about going back to daycare as much as he asks to go now!

Drew is growing fast! He had a doctor appt last week and weighed in at 9 lbs and has grown an inch. I can't believe he is a month old already! He is starting to stay awake more during the day and smiling at us! He has a pretty adorable gummy smile when he wants to show it! He could be sleeping a little better at night if you ask me but we are all doing ok! He likes to get up every 1.5 to 2 hours which stinks but what can you do! Glad Greg is home this time around to take turns! It amazes me everyday how much he looks like Charley when Charley was this age! Although I honestly don't remember Charley being this small! :)
