These 2 don’t need me!
and they crack me up.
I had to mow the lawn the other day so I got the little pool out for them to play in while I worked. Throughout my mowing they got snacks and chairs and put their feet up. They found squirt guns and water bottles and …. they came and picked strawberries when they got hungry again. I was laughing at them the whole time. My older kids would have came begging me to help them with all of those activities.
The Scraggly Hair… He was definitely in need of his first hair cut. He looks so big now! And I love that I can see his eyes.
THEN… Millie decided to give herself her 2nd Hair cut@!@! as she told Joel today – “I’m the only one that cuts my hair!”
And Tiago is being such a pill at church 🙁 He WON’T go to nursery 🙁 We’ve tried all of our tricks and he just throws a big old fit until he gets his way. Then he falls asleep in the 3rd hour.
But it all ended well with the delicious Rolls that Ben made for dinner 🙂
love this cute kid
needs a haircut
snotty winter time nose
always carrying around baby Jesus
Turned 18 months on December 1st.
Cried for 15 minutes because I wouldn’t let him go to nursery with a cold.
This kid makes us laugh. He loves to be in the mix with all of the other kids.
He throws big fits when he wakes up and when you try to confine him but if you give him some space he will just play for hours.
He still loves his milk and food and weighs a TON – 30lbs.
He has the best smile. He loves Brewer. He loves to tease. He loves to hit. He often hits other kids that he feels threatened by.
Tiago plays a mean game of catch and still loves to dribble the soccer ball.
He doesn’t talk yet but he babbles quite a bit now and will try to repeat when he’s in the right mood – BUT he undertsands everything. It always amazes me how much they “get it” at this age.
He still sleeps in our closet with his special blanket and music box. he sleeps from 8pm – 8am pretty much every night. He is finally starting to get a mouth full of teeth He had 8 for forever, Now he has maybe 15?
when all the kids are off at school this is what I’m still up against:
Ray is pretty easy. He does his Upstart Computer Homework every day after we take Rose to school. Then he gets a little bit of tablet time. He is self sufficient and doesn’t demand much. My biggest problem with him is that he will play the tablet and disappear = playing way tooo much.
Millie still runs the house. I am trying to potty train but she and I are both lazy. She loves to snuggle with me and watch shows or kids Utube crazy homemade videos. I usually snuggle with her and rest while Ray does his homework.
Tiago is ready for a nap right after we drop Rose off. He takes a good 2-3 hour nap every afternoon. He is learning to yell and use his voice and communicates a lot with his actions. He is so much fun to chill and laugh with.
I am SOOO EXCITED! We went to the RSL game on Saturday night and BENJI! babysat for us! from 7-10:30! He got all of the kids in bed and everything was perfect. Do you know what this means!!!!
We took Tiago to the game to make sure that it would be a good experience and it was! He did awesome babysitting and it was an awesome RSL game – they pulled off the win against the top ranked team in their division! Shannon and Kelsey were pretty fun too 🙂
This summer was the turning point for me. I was able to leave some or all of the kids with Benji for short amounts of time. I felt like I had so much FREEDOM 🙂 I often went to the grocery store during nap time. once I took the girls shopping. I even got my tires rotated and oil changed on time!! It’s a whole new world. But now he’s back in school 🙁
