Why do I wait so long between updates?! It’s impossible to go back and fill in all the gaps. Sooo, for now, here’s a brief(ish) update on what’s going on with our family.
Molli (3): Somehow my baby girl is turning into a big girl! She surprises me everyday with her new skills and expanding vocabulary. I don’t know where she comes up with half of the things she says these days. Yesterday she walked into the kitchen and saw a vase of fake eucalyptus and thought it was the most beautiful thing ever. She stood there in there with her eyes wide and said, “It’s so pretty, I can’t even believe my face!”
She’s also been increasingly affectionate. For quite a while, every night before bed she wanted me to snuggle with her for as long as possible, then throughout the day she’d climb on my lap to tell me she loves me. She tells me, “you’re my best girl.” She’s my best girl too. What a sweetie pie! That’s not to say, however, that she’s perfect. She tests me daily and pushes buttons I didn’t even know I had. The girl can really make me crazy! I hope that as she grows up she uses all that spunk to be a leader among her peers. Assuming I manage to guide her heart toward the desire to be a God-fearing young lady. No pressure.
Gavin (2): Ah, what a funny little man! I love this boy to pieces and am constantly entertained by him! He’s a boy of few “real” words, but it’s so fun watching him explore this language. He’s actually caught on to a lot more lately and some of it is really entertaining.
What was that- “Wah, wah, wah, wah, wah, wah was daaat?”
I love you- “E too!”
I brought out the toddler bed for him when we first moved into this house and he wants nothing to do with it. I thought it would be wise to get him used to it now so it’s less like the new baby is taking over all his things- his room, his crib etc. Today he fell asleep in the car so I carried him in and tried to trick him a little. I laid him down on the toddler bed instead of the crib and he woke up just enough to tell me, “No, no big. That one.” Meaning, not the big boy bed, put me in the crib. So I did. I just bought them bunk beds but need my husband home to before they get to try them out. They currently live in the garage. I’m not pushing the bed thing until we can get their bunk beds going on and a more permanent set up. No sense in making him get used to a toddler bed if it’s not going to be his sleeping residence, you know?
There are a lot of other things going on, but I figured I’d make a quick update, for my sake if nothing else.
