Changes, Changes, Changes...

I'm constantly falling off the blogging bandwagon...time to try again!

How about a quick update?

Miss Hannah is do amazing in in school. She was doing so well in reading in the Fall that they allowed her to have her reading level tested...even though they don't normally do it until 1st grade! My smartie-pants Kindergartner is reading at a 2nd-3rd grade level! She's been able to check books out at the school library since January and loves it! Recently she started taking tests on the books she checks out. This past week she decided she would get a new book every day and test on it the next day. I'm excited that she loves reading as much as I do!

Miss Avery is a ball of energy. She goes to preschool 2 days a week and stay home with me the other days. She's really started to learn a lot the past few months and will be ready for Kindergarten in the fall! She's definitely my goofball kid and always doing silly things or telling jokes. She's very insistent lately that she's my baby...more on that later!

Mr Noah is such a big boy now! We're just a few days over 2 months until his 2nd birthday! He's still not talking much which I think is partially because he still has a binky in his mouth most of the time. We're starting to work on weaning him off those. He is most definitely a boy and loves "Choo-choos" and cars. Yesterday he was captivated by Caillou. I think that's the first cartoon I've seen him really pay attention to.

The big news is this little one that's Due in August/September! Our New Year's surprise Baby #4!! The timing isn't perfect but we're already in love with this little one. We've decided not to find out the gender until the birth. This baby was a surprise from the start and we figured we might as well keep it that way! Another decision I made is to cloth diaper this time. This baby-wearing, co-sleeping, breast-feeding, baby food-making is getting a bit crunchier! I'm actually really excited to not add a bunch more disposables to the landfills!

Jason started school in January for Solar and Wind Technology. He's doing amazing and has about a 3.8 GPA. I am SO proud of him and hope he continues to enjoy school. He'll graduate next May and be able to get a really great job. It will hopefully make things easier on us financially!

I'm just trying to keep up with everything! I'm finally starting to get a bit more energy now that I'm in the 2nd trimester and hopefully I can keep it up. I'm counting down the days until my Maternity Leave when I can spend some time at home with my kids!
