Easter 2012

When you have the best family in the world, and the two coolest kids, you enjoy sharing pics of them with others. This is no different,  but a little more special since the boys were dressed up for Easter. We're a pretty casual family, but clean up pretty well when we want to. So here is a pic of our special boys, Knox and Lucas on a beautiful Easter Sunday in Birmingham.

Life has been so crazy, sometimes it feels like we haven't gotten to pay as much attention to Lucas' little progress as we dis with Knox. Thats probably natural with the second kid, and God only knows what will happen if there is ever a 3rd kid.

But we have definitely noticed as his first tooth (and quickly a second) has come in. And he is lunging forward, and one epiphany away from crawling like the wind.

This is exciting and fun to watch, but it'll create a little more work for Jill and i once he and Knox are sprinting everywhere. God be with us.

Almost there!

Kurt sent this picture to me this morning.  Lucas has been trying so hard to crawl for a week or so now, but this is his newest stance.  Kurt, of course, believes that he is actually practicing his "block starts."  Future track star in the making!

Spring Break starts in approximately 4 hours, 19 minutes...not that I'm counting :)

Nashville - here we come!  So excited to see my friends, family, and all the precious new babies!!

Long time no post

So Jill and I haven't posted a blog in a really long time. Life makes you busy and some things just slip through the cracks. We like it when other people post blogs so we can read/look up on what everyone else is doing, but don't want to take the time to do it ourselves.

Jill has been busy teaching 9th English at Hoover HS. She was a bouncer at the Sadie Hawkins dance last Friday, so be very jealous of that. It's indoor track season, so i'm crazy busy as well. We get to host meets now that the City of Birmingham built an amazing $48 million indoor track facility about 20 blocks from my office. I have taken full advantage and have hosted/am hosting 5 indoor track meets this year. We just got back from a big meet at Notre Dame this past weekend (where the Lady Blazers did awesome), so needless to say, i've been busy too.

Now what people really want to hear/read about...Knox and Lucas. Knox and Lucas are doing amazing. I know people write that everything is great, and the kids are awesome, but honestly, sometimes i think they're lying. Not here. Knox loves his school and has a little girlfriend named London. He is getting really good at counting to 15, naming all his letters, and colors. He doesn't forget a thing, ever. Jill drove past UAB Hospital where Lucas was born last week, and Knox said "Mommy, Knox, Dada get Cucas". Somehow he knew that's where we got "Cucas". Crazy. Knox is a great mimic. He mimics everything I do (not always good), and is really good at imitating songs and sounds. So maybe he'll make millions of dollars doing that for the rest of his life. Lucas is such a happy, fat little boy. He's 6 months old now, and smiles and laughs all the time. When he's not smiling or laughing, he's very content and chill. That happiest thing Jill and I can ask for at this point, is that they love each other, and boy do they. Knox loves tickling Lucas and playing around him, and nothing on Earth makes Lucas more happy or laugh harder than Knox. It's great.

Like I said, LIFE in general has kept us more busy that we could possbily imagine, but we are so happy, we wouldn't change anything. BUT, Jill is looking forward to a Spring Break in another month, and longer days. We'll both be ready for Summer. By that point Knox will be driving and Lucas his partner in crime. Can't wait.

I'm writing this from my work computer, so I don't really have any pictures on here, so i'm just posting a few of the things I have. Enjoy.
