I am so bad at this thing. I guess life just gets away from me. So many things are going on. Macaulay is 14 months now! It's so hard to believe. He is only 3lbs shy of Brody in weight! Who would've thought that a year ago, he would be almost the same size as Brody! He is doing great! He has taken a few steps, but nothing significant! He has been pretty healthy this cold and flu season. Thank GOD for that!

Brody, is in a big boy bed, and loves it. Now all the boys are together!!!! YEAH!!! He talks so much. A lot different than Zach. At this age Zach wasn't saying anything, so it's really night and day.

Zach is doing good. He worked really hard last semester and got citizenship at school. With that he got to have lunch with the principal. He was so proud of himself! We were proud of him too! He is getting ready to start coach pitch baseball. Practice starts next week! He is so excited!

Kayley is...Kayley! She is doing great in school. She made honor roll this past semester. They just had the honor roll assembly yesterday. With all the snow we have had this year it has been postponed twice! She is going to be playing softball this year. We got her team assignment this week, and she is on a team with a bunch of her friends. She is happy about that!

Other than that things are great! God is so good to us. We are finally settling in to a church routine. I finally feel like its where we are supposed to be! Its a great church, and couldn't ask for a better, more caring church family!

I will try to keep this updated, but with baseball starting I am sure it will be next to impossible!

Summer came and went...

How did that happen? It was busy, but a lot of fun. We got to go to Utah and spend some time with my family. We had a great time!

The kids are back in school and routine is getting back to normal! Zach is doing fall ball. Kayley really hasn't decided what she wants to do, so I guess she will be laying low until spring.

Brody is a chatter box. He talks so much, and says so many words. He is still into Curious George, but is spreading his wings a little and also likes Mickey Mouse! Change is good!

Macaulay is 9 months! I don't know where the time has gone! He crawls and sits, laughs, coos, smiles. Everyday it seems like there is something new that he does. He is a wonderful eater. He loves everything. This past week we gave him the Yo Baby yogurt and loved it! We are going to be have a big celebration for him in January to celebrate his birthday!

Bob and I are great! Life has been busy, but God is good and always faithful! Our church has been such a huge blessing to us these past few weeks as I have had some medical issues going on.

I guess that's all for now! Going to try and get better at updating!

Another weekend comes...and GOES!

Well, Zach had his t-ball game on Friday, and they won! They usually don't win or lose, but Zach's team got several outs so they WON!!! Zach also won the game ball because the way he hustled on the field. Go Zach!!!!!

The rest of the weekend was pretty uneventful! We went to church on Sunday, and then hung out. Bob worked.

Macualay's appointments went well. He is up to 9lbs 12oz!!! He is still on the monitor, and has reflux. So he is now on meds for that. The doctors were impressed.

Nothing else is going on. We are hoping to go away this Saturday night to go and visit an old Pastor and his wife. They are in the process of being voted in to a new church in PA, so we are going to hear him!

I can't believe that this weekend is already Memorial Day weekend! How did that happen? Before I know it kids will be out of school.

I hope everyone has a great week!

Been busy, but nothing exciting!

Well, I hope all you mother's out there had a great Mother's Day! I had a wonderful day! The big kids and I went to church, came home and hung out and then Bob made dinner!

On Monday, we finally got a van!!! It's so nice to be able to go places as a family and not have to worry about the safety of others! We love it!

Macaulay has two appointments this week. I would say that he is pushing 10 lbs!!! The doctor is going to start him on an anti acid. Lately he has been spitting up after eating. Brody had the same issue, but they just put him on a different formula. I would rather try this medicine, than put him on an expensive formula!

Brody is talking a little bit more everyday. I love this age stage watching them come into their own little person! He has enough personality and spunk for all of the kids, but he's so cute! Sometimes you can't help but laugh when he gets in trouble because he shoots you this big cheesy grin.

Kayley and Zach are ready for school to be over with! They had state testing last week and Kayley really stressed over it. I really wish they wouldn't put so much pressure on these kids. Tonight is their last night of Pioneer, so that will make Wednesday's a lot less crazy!

I guess that's all for now. I will post to let you know how Macaulay does on Thursday!

I'm tired!

After a long, exhausting weekend I'm ready for a vacation! Who knew that car shopping could be so tiring! No, we didn't get anything. With the way the economy is you would think that car dealers would be willing to wiggle a little, but not in our case. I know that we will get the perfect van in God's time, so we just have to wait for that.

We took Macaulay to the doctor today and he weighs 8lbs 7oz!!!! He has almost DOUBLED in size in 4 months. We can also start him on rice cereal now, so he will start gaining more. He slept through the night this weekend...well until 5! I really can't complain about that, 9 hours at night! It's a lot more than Brody ever gave me!

Kayley is going to get to go to a BlueClaws (minor league team here) game sometime next month with school because she got Citizenship. Don't really know the details, or why, because she has always gotten it but this is the first time she has been "rewarded" for it. I would much rather her get that than honor roll, because that says a lot about who she is. Not that honor roll isn't nice, or good grades aren't important.

Zach did great at his game on Saturday. He does really good at first base. With it being T-ball they move him around every inning so they get a taste of everything. He also made a really awesome hit! It's so cute to watch all the boys...and the parents! Some are so into it!

Brody had a good weekend. He is so funny! He always likes to steal Macaulay's binki, but always is kind enough to give it back to him if Macaulay starts crying.

I guess that's about all that's going on with the Bennett's today! Pretty boring...I know!

Busy weekend ahead!

There is a lot going on this weekend, so I know before I can blink it will be Monday morning again. This morning Zach has a game, and then my mother in law will be coming down so that Bob and I can go looking at van's! Its beyond time to upgrade! We have a couple places in mind that we want to go first, so hopefully we will find a good deal, I will keep you posted!

Tomorrow we have church and if we have a bigger vehicle maybe we will head to the beach! Its supposed to be in the high 80's! Can't stay inside with weather that beautiful!

Macaulay has two appointments this week. One Monday with our pediatrician and then on Thursday with the neonatologist. I would say that he is probably 8 1/2 to 9 lbs. He is starting to chunk up a little. He even has a double chin! He's a really good baby! He can roll over, and holds his head up nicely.

Brody loves him still. When he is melting down, he comes over and kisses him and that makes feel better. He is starting to say a few words. Ball, George, Zach, Oh Oh, Ma, nose, eyes, ears, and sometimes Da, and Kay Kay. Not bad, a lot different from Zach!

I hope everyone has a great weekend.

End of half days!!!

Well this has really been a long 2 wks! We had spring break, and then all this week with conferences we had 1/2 days. Tomorrow is a regular day!!!! Doing the happy dance!

Nothing really exciting has happened this week. Kayley had a book report due on Tuesday. It was on an Biography. She decided to do it on Jesus! She did a really good job on the report. We had to make a puppet that represented the person. That took 4 hours of my time, and $15! Monday night was not a fun night. She got an A+ on it!!! Here is a picture of the puppet.

I don't think it turned out to bad for our first attempt at a puppet!

Brody has really been loving the warmer weather. We went for a walk the other night, and I put him and Macaulay in the stroller, they both loved it. Kayley and Zach will sometimes take him out with them and he loves being able to play with the big kids!

Zach is looking forward to his game on Saturday. He is doing good.

It's supposed to be nice this weekend and Bob will be off so hopefully we will be able to do something outside. I'm also loving the thought of warmer, nicer weather. This feels like it has been the longest winter! A busy one, but really long!
