I will get pics

I don't have much time to write much. I'm not surprised though. I've been super busy with work, and family. Josh started school this last month and he's gone until about 9 every night. It's rough, but so worth it. I would so much rather he do school now while the kids are young.
Lincoln is growing growing growing. He already weighs about 16 lbs. He's almost 5 months old!! It doesn't feel like 5 months. I seriously feel like I just had him. He is just as chunky as Porter was. I was looking at pictures of the boys (which will come soon) and they are identical! It is amazing how alike they are. Lincoln is rolling over and he wants to crawl so bad. He's doing pretty well sleeping through the night. Some nights are better than others. Porter is so smart! He is always asking questions and never stops talking. He is doing well at school and learning so much. I am so glad he is there. I have been super busy with work. I feel like I got back from maternity leave and haven't taken a breath since. We did get NAEYC accredited!!! That was a HUGE HUGE deal for our center and me personally.
Anyway, my kiddos need me. More to come.....later. :)

Porter knows...

Porter know his letters, numbers, and can write his name. (This picture was the very first time he wrote his name. April 22nd) He is so good at it now. He is getting really good at puzzles and can do 35 pieces by himself. I don't mean to brag, but my kid is really smart.

Porter says funny things

I just wanted to remember some of the things that Porter has said recently.

Seeing someone parasailing "Wow, they are flying with a tent"

"Puzzle Puzzle comb down your hair"

Putting his one arm in the air "Mommy? That what superman does?"

"That's a good choice mommy. I'm so happy"

There are a million more. I just wish I could remember.....

Some Pictures

Lincoln Patrick was born on April 12th, 2010. We went in at noon and they put me on Pitocin. 1/2 hour later they broke my water and 1/2 hour later they took me off Pitocin cuz I was going on my own. I had tested positive for Group B and needed to be on the antibiotics for at least 4 hours. They were really worried that I wouldn't even make it the 4 hours. I did get an epidural. I don't know how people do it without. :) I tried to "tough it out" for a little bit, but it really hurts. Labor was REALLY fast. I started pushing with contractions and only went through about 5 contractions and Lincoln was born at 4:45! Lincoln was completely healthy. Not a problem with either one of us. We got to come home Wednesday morning. I think one of my favorite parts about having a baby is 1. The baby and 2. I love watching Josh be so proud. Josh is a FANTASTIC daddy and he is really good at giving both kids all the attention that they need.
Plus saves some time for me. :)
Porter was so cute when he met Lincoln. He wanted to touch every part of him and did. He would name every body part and get so excited that Lincoln had it too. One moment I'll never forget is when Porter pulled Lincoln's hat up a little and said "oh my gosh, he has small brains"! He would constantly compare hand sizes, and of course gave ALOT of kisses.
