Maybe it will last this time.

Ok, seriously, I'm going to try to blog one more time.
The last time I blogged was before Owen was born and Jack was 3 years old. A lot has changed since then! My sweet baby boy, Jack, will turn 5 in September. He is going through a major change in his life that my Grandmother says will happen every 5 years. Jack has become a little stubborn and defiant. I know it's hard to believe that Jack can be anything but sweet. At the same time, he is growing up and amazes us everyday. He is so smart and soaks up information like you wouldn't believe. Jack will start kindergarten in August and seems to be very excited. For right now, he will stay at the school that he has been at for 2 years. He loves the staff and teachers there! He will be going to kindergarten for 2 years because he misses the cutoff for kindergarten by a few days.

Owen, who is now 16 months, is definately the opposite of his brother. He is very independent and can play by himself for hours. He eats like a horse and will try just about any kind of food. He rarely sleeps through the night, which is kind of a pain. Right now, Owen wants his shoes on at all times. He has even taken naps with them on. His favorite shoes are his Crocs. It melts my heart when he brings them to me and whines for me to put them on. I love to see my boys playing together, especially when Jack makes Owen laugh!

Mike is still doing the pharmaceutical thing. He is very good at his job and for the most part, loves it. Anyone who knows Mike, knows that he loves golf. He hasn't been able to play since he broke his shoulder about a year ago (I'll tell that story at a later time) We are hoping that he may be able to play sometime in the near future.

So that's our update. More to come, stay tuned...

So I guess I have been slacking on the blog for the past few weeks. We have had a lot going on.
These first few pictures are from a day that Jack and I goofed off at the Botanical Gardens. Even though there weren't many flowers blooming, we still had a great time. Jack loved the koi pond and threw rocks for at least an hour.

Jack really liked the windmill and wanted his picture taken with it. Since it is so big, we had to go down to the rose garden to take the picture.

I love this picture because Jack always has his tongue hanging out when he is concentrating. Aparently, this trait runs in the family on both sides.

We went to Mike's parents' house for Thanksgiving and had a great time. Of course, Jack played trains at the science center that we went to. I posted this picture because there are not many pictures of the two of us. I was kinda proud of it.

Harley also has had a busy month. She went out to Waco and auditioned for a role in a remake of the John Wayne movie, True Grit. She did great and made it to the last round of auditions. She is waiting to hear whether or not she got the role.

There's not much else to tell. Owen is growing right on track and I am measuring right on time. When I was at the doctor's office today, I did something that totally goes against my initial opinion of vaccinations. I took the H1N1 vaccine. I never had any intentions to get the shot at all, but since our friend Chris passed away, I figured it would probably be the best thing. I was nervous before and I will continue to be until I know that Owen is ok.
We are waiting until after Christmas to start on his room. It is crazy to me that we haven't done anything to what will be his room. As soon as we get it together, I will post pictures.
Also, we have a 4D ultrasound scheduled for Friday and I am sooooo excited!
