My Boys....

...talkin' 'bout, my boys - my boys!


We checked up on Lincoln yesterday, and everything looks great! No funny cord issues like last time or anything out of the ordinary. We discovered he is a "poser" and because he was being quite the entertainer yesterday we ended up with a roll of photos so long it's nearly as tall as I am. The sonographer made me take the pictures out in a envelope so she wouldn't get in trouble for giving us so many, haha. He is "One of the most photogenic babies I've ever seen!" Which I would like to think is just because he's such a beautiful kid, but I think it was more a commentary on the good views she was getting. ;)

Ready for some of those bad pictures of pictures?

We caught him eating a snack and watched him opening and closing his little mouth and swallowing - it was sooo cute and so cool to see! Talking to all the parents out there, but you know that moment when it finally hits you (like for real) that there is a real person in there? That was it for us this time! Watching him eat totally did it.

Here he is mid-munch....

I always think the profiles of babies on the inside look like Peanuts characters. If I was any good with photoshop, I'd morph my child into Charlie Brown.

There's another cute little boy in my life that had a big week last week...I couldn't NOT document this one! Reagan finally got his chance to do something he has watched two sisters do before him. It's that time of the year for preschool screenings, and Reagan could not WAIT to "go to school!"

He was so pumped. It was all that he could talk about for days....

We dropped Charlotte and Grace off to hang out with my dad for a while and then began our walk to the school. That's when I discovered what kind of a day we were going to have at preschool screening. Reagan was very quiet. Then I heard him sort of whimper.

"What's wrong, buddy?"

"I want to go to grandmas!"

Haha. The child suddenly lost all enthusiasm for going to school once he found out his sisters got to stay with grandpa and he didn't. I had about two minutes to pep talk him into how much fun this was going to be. Was I successful?


We made it through the vision and hearing tests. Then when it was time for the main part of screening he sort of mumbled some answers...halfheartedly scribbled some lines for pictures...then absolutely refused to stand on one foot. At one point there were three of us trying not to laugh and asking him to please show us how to stand on one foot. He just stared at the ground. I'm probably not the best cheerleader in times like these, because I think just it's so funny. I cannot stop laughing.

One of the only colors he would identify...pink. "I bet I know why he knows that one!" Yep, he lives in a world of it.

No matter what anyone said or did, by about the halfway point he would just not say a word. He was done done done. Wouldn't even take any cookies. Then AS SOON as we walked out of the room and saw some kids in the gym across the hall, my dear son looked up to me and said clear as day, "Hey mom, there's some kids playing ball!"

So he wasn't struck mute after all!!

The little stinker proceeded to talk my ear off all the way down the hall and out of the building. It was like he was holding it all in, and of course no one else was around to hear it. :) Preschool is going to be interesting with this one!

Now, I know Gracie is not a boy, but she did want to show you something today.

She was very proud to find a four leaf clover in our front yard. :)

It is bittersweet knowing that we are moving and our kids will be going to a different school next year. It's terrifying knowing that Lincoln is supposed to be born the same week school is likely to start, haha. It's going to be a very crazy time of transition for us. Even I don't know exactly how we're going to handle it. Just another uncertainty in our lives...what else is new?!

It's inspection day, by the way. I'm a little jealous of Eric who gets to go over to the house for a couple of hours this afternoon. Hopefully he remembers to keep me posted on everything! We also have a friend coming to guide him on some of the home improvements that we would be planning. A lot hinges on today...so we'll see how it goes!

Happy day to you friends, and I'm very pleased to officially be able to say Happy Spring!!
