mini x 3

I kid you not, my mind has been blown by my status as mom to three at least 300 times this week. I even went all the way back to I can't believe I'm married mind-blowingness. Seriously, how. did. i. get here?! Madness I tell you! Anyway...

The yearly reminder of my children's tininess was today and I'm happy to report they are as skinny as ever. Benson was a whopping 36 pounds, Banks a whopping 25, and Roman tipped the scales at 9lb 14oz. The best part of it all was that in trying to assure me that my kids were fine, my doctor (who I love) told me a story of a patient he recently saw who weighed 27 pounds at 9 months. All I could think was, "I gotta get that mom's phone number!" If I could get my kids to eat half of what that one does we'd be set! My poor little skinny kids.

Speaking of skinny kids, have you seen More Than a Game? That little Dru gave hope to my husband that maybe even our tiny kids will be awesome at basketball. And I have to say, it was a great documentary. Definitely worth a watch if you are even remotely interested in basketball, and it will make you love LeBron. I found him to be cute and witty and all around a nice guy, and if nothing else you'll see he is, as Ben says, "a beast of a man."

Just proves the saying, "good things come in small packages!" Ben was in newborn diapers at the age of one, so I can see how it could happen. (sorry Ben) Cute, cute, cute...

THat picture of your 3 boys is the best! They are all so dang handsome. 3 beautiful boys. Crazy how tiny they are. They look healthy to me :] I should watch that documentary. I love basketball. Oakley weighed more than Roman at birth. I have huge babies. Hmmm. I hope she's not like 7'5" ha ha jk. I'm just grateful she's healthy.

uh yeah I sometimes wish my chunk didn't weigh as much as Banks. There's only a few years difference! When my arm is tingling and I can't feel my fingers at the end of the day...I think of little banks. But now des is getting picky so I think he's slowing down in his weight. Do you know what it is? I gave him something too hot (even though it wasn't) and so now he's afraid to eat anything I give him! Aahhh!

I am so happy to see this picture of all three of your boys. It is so great! And I know the feeling, even though I only have two, but it's crazy to feel like a kid at times but to really be the mom!

Crazy how Ethan weighs more than Benson and Madeline more than Banks. I had hoped Madeline would get some short genes from somewhere, but she didn't! They are all perfect in there own ways though, no matter the size!
