4 Months!

Yes, I know, it has been a couple of weeks since my last post. Things have been pretty crazy. Currently, I am working on being the project manager of a $60k hangar renovation. In other words, I was VOLUNTOLD to be in charge of EA Ball, which is about as low as it gets! Not too much flying lately, a lot of phone calls and such. Basically, I have a regular job again. NOOOOOOOOOO! Oh well. This fun will end in a week, and I can get back to the real world. Oh, wait, that means 3 crazy babies. What in the.....

So Saturday, the babies hit 4 months. I still can't believe that there are three babies in the house, let alone have now been in this world for 4 months.

And they have completely changed! The other day, I bought a scale to weigh myself, then me holding the babies (poor man's doctor scale). A week before they were 4 months their stats were: Jack: 14 lbs 6 oz, Chloe: 15 lbs 2 oz, Lucas: 14 lbs, 12 oz. HUGE. At least there is some consolation in the fact that they eat over 40 oz of formula every day (still fun to make).

They are doing some funny things now. You can get Jack to laugh and smile all the time now. It is especially good in church when he decides to laugh very loudly at everything-good times. Chloe is really the same. She definitely has the things she likes and dislikes and isn't afraid to say. But she is so fun to get "talking" and smiling. Once you get her going, you can't really get her to stop. And then the Luke. That kid is going to be WILD. He is trying to run before he can even crawl. He smiles all the time as well. And feeding him is a trick now because he is so long and while burping him he throws his body everywhere (I am waiting for him to give me a black eye, or launch himself over the couch). Crazy stuff.

And one of the best parts? They now basically sleep through the night! That's right. The boys have done it for about 4 weeks now, and Chloe, after some trial and error, is doing about the same. She may wake up once or so, but goes back to sleep very easily. Definitely good for Mama, who is having some long days keeping up with them.....and they can't even move yet.

Here are some picks of us with the kids at my squadron's Change of Command, and a few others. Enjoy.
