Phew... been busy

Ok. So I didn't get back as quickly as I'd like. But now that I have a lot of other things going on. I can keep up with things this way.

First, my babies are growing like weeds! They are so bright and I love it!

JD is 4 1/2, and I can't believe it! How did that tiny bundle of joy turn into the 43 1/2 inch and 40.6 lb boy he is. I can't say little any more, because he's not so little! And he is sharp. Which can get him in trouble. He has such a sassy attitude. Which occasionally is cute, other times, I want to wash it out of him. But he's adorable. And boy does that little man have freckles forming.

Then we have my little man. Ptolemy is my mini man. He's 39 1/4 inches tall and 33lbs! He still has his stutter and a lisp, but we are working on it. The schools say he is too smart receptively to receive any aid. Oh! Well, I'll tell you, he won't be pulled out of his classes to go to some speech class. I don't want other learning affected for something I just wanted ways to help him work it out now. But he is so smart otherwise. Just this morning he counted the chairs at the table and told me how many there were. And knows a good start to his colors. And so much else to add, but I'll save that post. And can I say, handsome as they come! Love his smile and twinkling eyes!

And then there is the baby...who is not a baby no more. Kailtyn has grown up so much! I can't believe it honestly. She's 2, going on 16! Can't believe my girl is 35 1/4 inches tall and 32.2 lbs. She's built like a little gymnast, and acts it too! She's such an active little girl and loves to keep going. And her brothers are her idols! All she cares to do is be with them and doing what they are doing! Smart like the boys, of course. I'm doomed with all three of them! She just started counting objects, and can say her numbers. A couple colors, pink being her favorite. And man oh man is she a little tom boy. She loves to wear her dresses, and then go out and climb trees, dig in the dirt or climb the slide along with her brothers!

I just feel I blinked and they all grew up so much! Where has the time all gone! How can they be so big. I love watching them learn, hearing the joy in their voice. I always look forward to the next milestone/lesson learned as they get so excited and show so much expression. Occasionally it gets hard listening to the same thing over and over, but I wouldn't trade it for the world!!

We also had a pretty good and busy summer. The boys got to enjoy a trip away with his father and that side of the family. The boys had a blast, thought I missed them considerably! That week was Mommy and Kaitlyn time, and she became potty trained, though went backwards just a touch when the boys came home. But hey, she was happy they were home again. We've taken the family hiking, Nature Center in the Pine Bush, to an RC Air Show, Ocean, swimming and so much else. And we can't forget a lot of fun just playing out in the yard! It was good. And of course Kaitlyn got some trips with Mommy without her brothers, and we got to go to the fair, visit a farm for a pig roast, and a lot else. But honestly, glad fall is here!

Fall is my season. This year it's been an odd weather year. The summer started out really wet, had a week of really hot weather and since was cooler. Already a lot of the leaves have been turning, and the nights are very crisp. But I'm looking forward to all the fun. Next week, we are taking the babies to the apple orchard! Last year they enjoyed it, so I know it will be great this year.

Also, having issues with the pre-school getting in touch, so I am working on homeschooling the boys from home with all their pre-school stuff. Actually starting Kindergarten with JD. So I'll need this to keep up and remind myself of the good, bad and ugly! Bring on the fun!!!
