We are back in the new year!

So it has been a while, but we are back! A lot has happened since the last post back in March. Our sweet baby boy was born, we moved to Alabama, Baron now has his first 5 flight hours training to fly helicopters, and Charlie is about to turn 5 months old! So lets back track a little bit. Charlie Owen was born on August 10. He weighed 8lbs 6oz and was 20 inches long. 9 days after he was born, we moved to Alabama. It was a long trip with a week old baby, but we made it! He slept most of the way so it really wasn't too bad. Its hard to believe we have now been here almost 5 months! Charlie is now growing like a weed!! At his 4 month checkup he weighed 16lbs and was 26 1/4 inches. As of recently he is sitting up on his own and is rolling like a rolling pin. Its been so neat to watch him grow. We love to hear him laugh and watch him play. Baron started flying on Monday. It is a challenge but he is loving it! Not only has it been a challenge, it has been exhausting. Ever other week he has to get up at 3:30 am to start his day. When he gets home in the evenings, we have a little family time and then its time for him to hit the books. He made a 100 on his first test last week. He has made me so proud. His busy schedule has been hard to get used to, but we are adjusting. So far though, 2011 is treating us well. Hopefully there will be a few more updates from us this year than last, so stay tuned!
