I'm finally back

Blogs came two or three times a week, then once a week, then once every two weeks, once a month.......now hardly ever! Once I get behind, I get SO far behind. I hate playing catch-up, and I hate to skip anything. Well, I have to skip now that it's been 6 weeks!

Things have been so busy! The kids are growing so quickly, I can hardly keep up with them. The twins teach Bennett everything, good and bad. He is so smart (and devilish) for his age. I can't believe he will be 18 months old next week. His dimples are so big, they are like craters in his cheeks when he smiles :o) He is working on potty training and doing very well. He doesn't tell me when he has to go, but when I sit him down he pushes and will usually do something in the potty :o) He is well on his way and should be diaper-free well before his second birthday! Can't wait!!!!

Caden is turning into my little love bug. He is such a great buddy when Cam is not around. He is so helpful and well-behaved. He is a great big brother to Bennett and just an all-around sweet boy when he's solo.

Cam is my charmer. He knows what to say, when to say it, and how to say it. It's hard to tell that little cutie pie "no" for anything. He just opens those baby blues really wide and stares innocently into your eyes. Speaking of Cam, I got to go on a trip with him to Nagasaki last week. He had a modeling job for Maclaren strollers, and I had to go with him since he's only three. It was fun to spend time with him alone. Todd took leave to hang with the other kiddos! Bailey also had a modeling job last week. He shot for two days with Nike for their spring line. We found out he had the cover shot, so we are very excited to see the catalog :o) Aside from missing two days of school to model, Bailey has been hitting the books hard. He always has lots of algebra and Japanese homework, but those are his favorite subjects, so he doesn't complain too much. He might get his first B this year.....he has a teacher who's out to get him! She even told me during parent/teacher conferences, "I'm afraid he defines himself by that A. What's going to happen when he doesn't get an A?" I felt like saying, "Well, Bitch, let's not find out!" I just smiled instead. I know she wants to "break" him so badly. She's a B-I-T-C-H, and I'm just waiting for the day for the big battle between momma and teacher! Oh, I will SO win!

On a happier note, next week is the promotion listing. We are very excited to see Todd's name on it!!!! Of course, it will still be at least another year before he is actually promoted, but we'll know he's been selected :o) Whoo hoo.....pay raise for momma!!!!!

The boys are super spun up for Christmas. They are ALL about Santa Clause and the presents under the tree! They want to go see him EVERY day to remind him that they want a transformer movie. The little weirdos don't even know what transformers are......they hear Tristan (a friend at school) talk about his transformer movie, and they want one too. Santa will bring it though, because SHE is a good Santa and loves to see them smile and get so excited, but she also knows it will scare the pee right out of them! Live and learn, right?

Still hittin' the gym hard.....no buns of steel yet, but I feel good :o) I'm really addicted to it, actually. If I miss a day, I totally freak out about it and beat myself up. If my muscles aren't sore somewhere on my body, then I know I've been slacking and need to step it up :o)

Well, I'm going to go for now, but here are a couple of pics for you to enjoy!

Here's Cam with his "model" mommy. I took this during one of the shoots. He really liked Megan :o)

Here he is showing off his "press" pass he had to wear all day when he wasn't shooting. He thought that was pretty cool.

Should've known I couldn't get all three of them happy at once. Bennett walked right up to Santa, but as soon as he leaned towards him to pick him up, he lost it!

mmm, mmm, mmm......my little mini-me. He is my little darlin', sugar booger, honey bunny, cutie patootie!!!!!

......last but not least, Shaggy, I mean Bailey. His tennis coach tells me ALL THE TIME (he's my tennis coach also) to please get his hair cut. I want to SO badly! Bailey had to rub it in my face that Nike likes it long and he wouldn't have got the job if he got it cut short. So, now it will take some real bargaining to get him to cut it!

toodles for now :o)
