A little bit of this, a little bit of that

Dawson had his 4 month checkup today. He's 15lb 10oz and 25 1/4 in.--75th % for both. The doctor was impressed he's rolling over already and said she only sees about 1% of babies rolling at that age. Its always nice to hear your child is advanced in any area but makes me nervous I have a wild one on my hands!!
This is officially my last week as a stay-at-home-mom. On Monday, I'm going back to my old job at America's Family Coaches for 3 days a week, 5 hr. days to get us over the financial slump. They were flexible with the days and hours I was able to work so it'll fit in perfectly with my available childcare. Jon will have the boys on Mondays, with occasional help from his brother Aaron and wife, Bria. Tuesdays, my mom will have them and Fridays, Judie will have them. Plus, I'll only miss one of Dawson's feedings so it shouldn't be too difficult. And it'll be nice to reconnect with all my friends who still work there.
Much to Jon's chagrin, Bennett had his first Starbucks yesterday. My good friend, Manda, came over with her kids (Madeline and E-lion, as Bennett referred to them later!) to hang out and treated us to chai and hot chocolate, respectively. Jon is against Starbucks on so many levels so I'm sure he was hiding his horror, seeing his son with that cup. (Totally kidding, Manda. I don't think he cares, as long as I'm not paying for it :) I saw Bennett take his first sip and about 15 seconds later, he handed his cup to Jon and said, "here, Dad." I thought, oh great, he's not going to drink it and it'll go to waste. But no, he'd drained the whole cup!
Had to share Bennett's hilarious meltdown I caught on camera.


  1. Ha! Next time I will stop at Caribou!!

    Seriously, LOVE that video!! Bennett is the cutest!!

  2.'s not that it's starbucks per's that it is overpriced liquid. so since you weren't paying for it, i could care less...thanks manda:)

  3. Bennett is cute....and that is barely a beltdown! You should see the meltdown my DAUGHTER could have at that age!

    There must be something about that second child wanting to be in the action that gets them moving early!

  4. if that's a meltdown, i better just throw in the towel. :) ha.

  5. shoot bethany me too. maybe its because hes a boy and can be mellow. we are working with girls...
