Micah is 4 months!

A lot has happened in this last month... here's a few of them:

David was off on a Monday and when I asked if he could help me with school (which I thought meant to play with the others while I taught), he went to the classroom and started school. He got so much done that we've not had much to do this week... he was/is an excellent teacher! (And that's an icepack on his back; nursing a back injury)

And I couldn't help but capture a rare moment: Jacob "doing school" at the little table I moved into the classroom. He usually is at my leg or trying to get into John Paul's chair while he's working. He was "reading" Bob books.

JD and Rhonda Monlezun (cousins) offered us their super swing set! He said it, "something I mow around now" and they took HUGE leaps and bounds to get it to us (in the rain and the dark while being eaten alive by the mosquitoes). Now... my kids don't come inside anymore, Therese and John Paul have both learned to swing themselves... and Jacob can "swing like a big kid"! Thanks JD and Rhonda!

And our Micah Philip is 4 months old! He's 17 1/2 pounds and 26" long! That makes him 90th percentile in both length and height! Surprised? Neither are we.

According to Dawson tradition, the men feed the first solids...

Sweet Micah Man, as I call him...

He loves his siblings!

Thanks for reading! Have a great weekend!

Wow! I can't believe how big he is! Everyone is always telling me Peter is big, but he's only 15 lbs and not that tall. Love the swing set too; what an awesome gift.
