Cleaning and scrubbing will wait ’till tomorrow, but children grow up, as I’ve learned to my sorrow. So quiet down cobwebs! Dust go to sleep! I’m rocking my baby. Babies don’t keep. – Ruth Hamilton

4 year, 3 year, 18 months

They are a growin.  Growin like weeds!
This post is about 1 month late, but better late than never.
Mark and I took all three into the doctor's office for their normal checkups.  It was the first time EVER to leave with healthy kids, no prescriptions, and no future fears!  WOWZERS! 

Avery at school writing!  This was sent to me from her teachers!  Her teacher's passion for literacy (and maybe mine) show through when a 4 year old is using an ABC chart to write the word toast!

She heard tot!!!!  I give many cheers to our teachers at Stephens-I mean how many people have preschool teachers with their Masters???!!!??? 
Avery Elizabeth is so tall!  She weighed in at 41 LBS (86%) and is 41 1/2 (83%) inches tall.  This is one active girl who is going to be quite an athlete.  She has been enjoying soccer and practicing hitting the ball out in the backyard.  She loves to be outside playing and also loves to be inside reading-we've been reading the Children's Bible every night-We just finished after about three weeks.  She said tonight, "I think I've forgotten where we were!"   It's fun seeing them change into young kids!
Macklin and Avery had a special visit from daddy at school...he brought a whole dump truck on the playground filled with mulch for their butterfly garden.  Look at his face-he was so proud!
Normally I would say he was such a big boy, but he has lost about 5 LBS since being on steroids.  He is now 36.4 ILBS (86%) and is 38 3/4 inches tall (79%).  He is loving life.  most of his days are spent in a sand box!  At school, at home and at the playground.  Mack is one funny dude!
This is Lincoln reading in bed-he screams at night for more books...ahhhh such a teachers delight
Lincoln is fully healthy and can hear out of his ears again!  He has finally started talking a lot this week.  He weighs in at 25 ILBS and 3 oz (71%) and is 33 inches tall (67%).  He can make us memorized by his toughness.  He is a non-stop kind of kid!! 
To all my babies-you are all one of kind!  You are so different in wonderful ways, yet connect with each other in the most amazing way.  You are siblings that will be so close!
