5 Months

The babes have now made it to 5 months. It is a little hard to believe. The exciting part is Lincoln and Tatum are on the growth charts without having to adjust it for their age. Now usually when you hear about a kid and the growth chart it is because they are 98% for weight or 99% for head size. SO this is definitely not to brag- but to be excited that they are growing. Lincoln is in the 12th% for about everything weighing in at 14 lbs 1 oz, 24 1/2 inches long. Tatum in the 8th% 12 lbs. 5 oz - 23 1/2 inches long. Carter still not on, but growing really well 11lbs 9.4 oz and 23 inches. I think Tatum is getting hosed with growing as fast since she sleeps through the night and apparently doesn't make up the calories during the day. But- you can't really force a kid to eat so all is well. Carter isn't very happy in this picture, but who can blame him when the appt lasted about 2 hours and he was supposed to be napping during the majority of that time.

Here some pics from their first Birthday Party. Addison Hein turned 2 and had a farm party so they got some animal hats to try on which lasted maybe a minute.. not even that long for Tatum since she got a little cranky. But good times. And then once again Carter got worn out and wouldn't fall asleep in his car seat, but did pretty well in Dana's arms. I don't think I've ever seen them fall asleep in a position like that, but they don't get neck pain yet so who cares !!

About the snowboarding trip- Ben decided not to take pictures with his camera so his brother did, which means there aren't any fun things to post besides babies once again....

Another good time

Ben got to take his Licensure Boards this weekend and was a total stress ball, but feels that everything went as good as could be expected and is SO glad it is done. His reward for working hard is a couple days of snowboarding. Hopefully he'll get some cool pictures to put on here since I'm sure we are all sick of the babes pics, but since that is what I have that is what I'll post. I took a couple pictures at the 4 month mark... and Linc got started on some Rice Cereal and actually does pretty well. I'll try and get more pictures of Carter later, he kind of got hosed...And some others that were funny. We went on a walk when it was a little chilly for the babes.. and this is them in their suits. Carter (in dark blue) looked hilarious because he was drowning in it- but it kept him warm and cozy so he got a good nap in it.

I got the OK

Ben had been applying to some GPR programs after finding the no good news for Pediatrics and I realized I never really announced the new news. We will be moving to Oklahoma for Ben to start June 22nd. We are very excited to now have some plans and it will only be for a year, and then we'll have to come up with something else to do. Maybe be done with school and go get a job?? So Oklahoma City...yippee!!

Thanks Teri

Here are the most recent pictures taken of all the kids... professionally! I have been spoiled to have good friends that want to take their pictures , there is no way I was going to take them somewhere and do this. So THANK YOU!! Tatum was a little risky, didn't want to behave but we were so surprised at how well the boys were. Didn't get the flirty smile from Carter, but he was happy so we can not complain. There are plenty in Black and White- But Ben took that disc so everything gets stuck looking at the color. They sure are Cute though!!
Now can you tell which Boy is who??
Top and 2 Bottom pics are Linc...

Here is our Lovely Carter Bug...
And here is my Angel Tatum. Even with her cranky, some pictures are still adorable.
