the post is an attempt to name a post something other than "a few things" or "i'm bad at blogging" or "iphone pictures" (i didn't pick that last one because, while i should download and post some pictures from my phone...which has been my only camera lately....i am too lazy to walk the 20 feet to the kitchen to get my phone....so it will have to wait until a time that the phone is on my person, I am sitting at the computer...and i remember to do it....and have a few minutes). 1000 miles an hour alludes to how i feel life has been moving along lately, and is the reason I have not blogged in forever!
For example...Audrey will turn ONE in a few weeks. ONE. I can't quite wrap my head around how quickly this year has passed. We are all still slightly obsessed with her. She is walking (but a little shaky....i'm actually taking her in in the morning to have her hip x rayed for possible hip displaysia. They did an ultrasound a few months ago and didn't really see anything....do i don't think it's anything severe, but they want to do a follow up x ray just to be sure. anyway....She is a little doll. She waves bye bye, she says "oh oh", she smiles gigantic huge grins and does big belly laughs. She loves to give kisses (she especially loves to try to kiss kody's head). She has a few little dolls / stuffed animals that she has taken a fancy to, and tries to cary them around. And while she is an easy baby, she is still a baby...and prefers for me to be holding her much of the day. If not holding her, sitting by her, singing to her, clapping with her, reading to her, etc. And when you add in laundry (where does all the laundry come from????) and meal preparing (which is another post all together), and the kid running around, and garden watering, and homework helping, and baseball / swim team and church callings, etc....there is little time left over.
For mother's day every year we take a picture of each of the primary kids for them to give to their mom's in a card. Here are the pictures of my boys....
Brady was very cute on mother's day this year. The night before he wrote me a little note saying that i was to take the day off, sleep in, stay in bed, he'd be my servant....for me to clap 3 times if i needed anything, etc. He also couldn't go to sleep. He said he was too excited for mother's day. I wish I could have followed his note...but we had 9 am church...and afterward we had family over for a dinner (so there was some picking up and meal prep to be done). But it was still a great day with breakfast in bed and some cute cards, etc. from the kids.
Ok...this is boring. I will come back when i've downloaded pictures from my phone. without pictures to comment on I have to come up with things to say....which takes a lot of work and thought.
