Ok... so a few things.
One: Rick had some interviews today. the one was with this sign/advertising shop. And in not so many words- the guy who interviewed him said "Well.... you have great work, but how about you go look at these other places and see if they'll hire you and if not, come back to me and i'll hire you."

seriously? like... what is that? He said the guy was very nice and was impressed with his work, but didn't know how to take it. Was it just that his work is not similar enough to what that particular shop does or was it that he felt bad for RIck and really just wanted to be nice? sheesh.

guess we'll see. We're not dead set on living here in this town per se... but we'd really really like to if we can manage it. oy....

anyway- onto more fun things!
Little Jayce had an apt this morning and i was excited to see how much he weighed and how tall he was. For the past...oh..... 3 weeks or so, we've just been in awe of how big we think this kid is. and looks as though we were right! baby will be 3 months old tomorrow (GASP) and he is currently 12 lb 12 oz and 24.5 in long. wanna hear the stats? first off.... ALL my kids have always been below the "norm"- tha'ts to say.... they have been cursed with small parents so they get lucky enough to inherit those genes. ;)-
Hailey has literally been off the charts- in the bad way- for about 3 years now. meaning.... she's WAY below average for her age. she's teeny tiny.
Kayleb has managed to stay around 25-50% for his age. not bad.
Mia... she's a little luckier than hailey. she's in the 10% for her age. still small.
and now little Jayce.... this is funny. He's in the 50% for his weight and 90% for his height.

WHAT??!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!? is he seriously my kid? i mean... we've always had doubts since he came to us. like.... think the mailman entered in somewhere in that equation.... ;)-
seriously though... i was shocked. i actually have a BIG kid. maybe he'll be one of those mutant children where he's going to be the one that looks like he's been adopted or something. lol
man.... kinda makes me happy- i better knock on wood though, heaven knows i get all excited like this and then watch. in about 6 months, we'll go to weigh and measure him again and he'll be in the 10% like the rest of them. this just happened to be one of those freak growth spurts.

aaaaahhhhhhh.... sure love having these goofy things happen- keeps life interesting doesn't it? lol

how funny! I also wonder where our Noah came from because both Jason and I are small and Noah has been in the 90% for height since he was born. He is also built like a football player. If he didn't look so much like Jason I would wonder where this kid came from.

So I have a call into the guy I know and hopefully we can maybe get something going for Rick. I will keep you posted. By the way good job on the big kid. Seth is only in the 25 in weight and 50 in height.

lol! glad you're doing better. You already sound less stressed and happier . I hope the job thing works out, somehow. good luck!

So is it good to call you? Cuz I want to but wasn't sure how crazy things were.
And Husband totally said the kid was his, so you guys got some 'splainin' to do.

good luck to rick...
both my kiddos were always on the small side, except for Owen's head! It was always in the 90s :O (like his dadddy...)

Wishing Rick all the best on his job search! I hope he kind find something that is his "nitch" and not settle for anything less.

And congrats on the Budda baby, lol! Fat happy babies are beautiful!

That is too funny about your children's sizes. All three of my children are built differently and it's really noticeable now that they're grown
