Quick Takes Friday: #23

Since we are now the Lucky 7, I will give a quick run-down of what each of us have been up to lately!  Join more 7 Quick Takes Friday Fun at!

Alice: 3 months old

Alice is at a really fun stage.  She smiles constantly, is very chatty, and graces us with new baby giggles.  We love hearing her "voice" and watching her grow.  Her growth curves are following those of Sophie and Ben's babyhoods... she is a fat, happy girl and I just can't get enough of her!

Lucy: 2 years, 11 months old 

Lucy is just as hilarious as ever.  One of my favorite Lucy-quotes of the moment: "I'm not naughty... I'm AWESOME!"  She is the most fun I've ever had... and she also is very good at wearing me out!

Ben: 5 years old

Always running, climbing, shouting... and definitely, always talking.  This little guy is Mr. Popularity at preschool.  I just can't believe he will be in Kindergarten next year.

Bella: 6.5 years old

Bella is the sweetheart of the family and definitely a girly-girl. She loves ballet, modeling for mommy's business contacts and will do just about anything for chocolate.  After a bumpy start, she is totally rocking Kindergarten.

Sophie: 9 years old

Sophie is a little Mama, the typical oldest!  ;)  She is smart as a whip, friendly and strong.  She loves soccer, running, and writing her own songs.  I love watching her mature into a tween!

Mama: Old Enough to Know Better

 I've finally recognized the importance of making time for myself.  I am spending more time with my good friends, making eight hours of sleep each night a priority, and working out 4-6 times a week.  I feel better than ever, and have lost 20.2 lbs.  I have a lot more to go, but it is a decent start!

Adam: Not Too Old To Make a Change

 I am so proud of Adam.  He is working with a personal trainer and with the goal of running in the New York Marathon this year!  He is losing weight and getting stronger in every way.  He constantly suprises and amazes me, and I think he has started amazing himself a little bit too!  :)
Life is Good!

Love this! And wow, your kids are getting so big. It doesn't seem possible that Ben is 5 and Lucy is 2!

I don't remember where I found your blog, but I read it from time to time. Your family is beautiful.
