Jeremy - Has decided he's going to "slay his dragons" before breakfast every morning. So, he gets up, has his quiet time and goes to the gym first thing. I have been really proud of him for sticking to his committment to get in shape this year. He's been eating healthy and is very conscious of his portions. He has committed to spend more time at home, which means that he is only gone from the house one night a week (other than Sunday night and Wednesday night). He started this toward the end of last year and I can really tell a difference in the way our family functions. It's just nice to have daddy home!
Carrie - I too, have been going to the gym at least 3 times a week. Lately, I have been going with Katie and it is so much easier to workout with her. If I'm by myself, I am usually not there very long, but when I go with her, the time just flies by. And we get a great workout as well! I am also reading Kisses From Katie by Katie Davis. So far, it is WONDERFUL!
Zeke - Zeke is growing up so fast. He looks like such a little boy and not my baby anymore. He does not like to sleep by himself, so lately, he has been sleeping on the twin bed in Madie's room. It's very sweet at night because we can hear them from the den just talking and laughing. Zeke is obsessed with anythng "Daddy". Yesterday, for example, Zeke helped Jeremy haul a tree to the farm and pick up pinecones in the backyard. He kept telling Madie that she had to stay inside because they were doing, "men's work".
Madie - Madie is such a little prissy girl. She loves all things girl. If her hairbow falls out, she'll yell, "fix it!" She loves to wear her boots with any outfit. She is definitely a good eater. The girl can put away some food! Yesterday I fed her breakfast and then she ate most of Jeremy's as well. She is too funny. Another thing she does now is take off her PJ's. It doesn't matter what kind she's wearing, every morning when I go to get her up, they are off. Who knows how long they've been that way. As soon as I walk in the door, she'll say, "I took off my pajamas".
