Just a few things...

*My mother in law was here for 10 days and it was wonderful to have extra hands and adult conversations!  Plus, the boys were so glad to have grammy here.  Although, Andrew renamed her -- meme :)

*It's almost May.  That blows my mind.

*May is going to be busy: a little family vacation, Andrew's second birthday, finding out if we are having a boy or a girl, Patrick's taking a trip for work, Memorial day fun -- but not in that order.

*Finding time to sit down and blog is tough lately.  I want to do it.  I want to remember things and write them down and take pictures and put them up.  I just...don't.

*I'm going to do a giveaway soon.  This is my 1004 posts.  And that is crazy. But I've been buying random things to put in a little "thanks for reading my blog" basket {or box}.

*Andrew is the strongest kid I know.  He hangs on things and can pull me around.  He also falls more than any other kid I know.  He always has a bruise or scratch or something. Poor guy.

*I've recently been able to feel the baby move around.  They are still little flutters and nothing too pushy -- but certainly much earlier than the last two pregnancies! I love these fun little milestones.

*When Benjamin dresses himself, his socks never match.  Ever.  And I don't change it.  I think it's cute.

*I ran the OKC Memorial  5k on Sunday.  The whole event is so beautiful and so humbling! It really makes me feel like I'm an Oklahoman.  And I get to see the growth and strength of this wonderful city.  Being there made me want to run the half marathon, but I knew that was not possible right now! :) My 5k time was slow, about a 12 minute mile, but I finished and ran the entire time.

*Andrew loves trains. He loves them. And helicopters.  And diggers. And firetrucks. He is such a boy!

*Benjamin is so excited about having a baby.  And he is so grown up, it seems.  The conversations we have are funny and serious and so...big.  He also wanted to know how babies come out the other day.  Good grief.

OKay -- enough for today. I need to corral some boys and get them in the car.

I think the world would be a better place if we could all wear sock (or clothes in general) that didn't match. But that comes from my mind and I am much more in line with the fashion sense of those 5 and under. Thanks for that random update posts. As a fellow blogger you must know they still count!
