But that doesn't mean our life hasn't gone on. I look through the pictures and see so many things that have happened.....that I need to record and then someday stop procrastinating and turn this blog into a book of memories. So, here we go. I'm going to make more of an effort to blog more. This blog isn't for the enjoyment of others, although I know some of my friends read it and enjoy seeing our life. It's for me, for our family, to look back on someday and see and remember all the fun and excitement that was our life.
The boys are facing a double digit birthday next year. Wow! What happened to my sweet boys who needed me every second? Who wanted to sit and play games and puzzles with me? Who begged for another trip to the park? Now they're school aged, facing double digits in February, boys who love their video games, science experiments and series of books.
And Natalie, who will be three in October?! Three?!! Seriously?! She's the one who is the picture of independence! Yes, with a capital "I". Her sentences flow so well, she asks questions and strikes up a conversation. Like, "Mommy, did you buy Cheez-Its at the grocery store for me?" When I answer yes, she's says, "Thanks. I like them." Or last night on the way home, she was loudly complaining that she didn't want to go home. Derrick asked where she wanted to go instead and her answer was "Disney World to see the princesses." Carries her babies, and loves on them. Brings me her Baby Anna every morning so I can give Baby Anna a hug and kiss in the morning. Goes up the play structure at the park with no fear. Sometimes I feel like I missed her baby and toddlerhood because she's developed her speech and thinking skills so quickly. But, from what I've heard, that's a girl for ya.
Okay, enough rambling. I need to write some more posts to play catch up...Lindsey's Shower, The Last Days of School,DI, Flag Football, Lucas as the Student of the Week, Lindsey and Ben's Wedding, and our most recent Disney vacation. Whew!
