Catching up

I have been so slack with this blog lately. We have had quite a few things going on that I have wanted to write about but when I get some quiet time I either want to sleep, clean or spend time with Scott.
Just to back track some...in June the kids and I, Nicole(sis n law) and Addi(niece) went to the beach for several days. My aunt and uncle go with their 2 kids and my grandmother every year and in the past growing up I would go with them. Since being married and now having children I have not been able to make it so I was very excited to go this year. The kids did great but I will say it was a little much handling them without Scott. The family was a huge help though!

SS loved the beach and swimming in the pool...Hamp was not a huge fan...he is to fat to be in the hot sun!!:)
The kids did wonderful during the ride and on the way home having 3 tired kids in the backseat got me out of a speeding ticket!!! The police officer said "it looks like you have some worn out kids in the back." I batted my eyes a little and said "yes sir they are ready to be home"..it worked all I got was a warning!! Now SS says "fast" when we drive!!

July came around and we had April and Jacob in for the weekend of the 4th.

We always have a great time with them and they adjust to the lack of sleeping arrangements at our little bungalow!!!
Scott smoked barbecue...

and we had friends over for food, horseshoe and fireworks.

It was a wonderful time.

Through the summer I feel like the kids are growing like little weeds.

Hampton is 21lbs, sitting up and becoming such a little man!

SS...well lets just say she is a sassy little thing. Overnight she started carrying conversations with us and has gone from this little girl to this mature little 2 year old. I love it...she is saying things that just crack us up...she knows things that I still don't know how she figured them out! For example the other day we are reading a counting book...I start 1 she says "2" I say 3,4,5,6 she says"7" I proceed with 8, she says "9 10" WHAT...how the heck do you know that:)!!!
She no longer calls Hampton "danton" he is now "buddy." BUT..not just buddy its "buddy buddy buddy" FAST!! Every time she calls him she says his name in 3's.
Pouting has come to stay...she will throw her head in her hands and do a fake cry...then peek at you through her fingers with a little grin! She pouts about anything these days.

We have been teaching her how to say her name...we have made great progress from "Sott" to now " Say Sott!"
My 2 big "to do's" now are starting to think about potty training and getting rid of the paci. I just don't see this paci thing happening anytime soon bc it is so devastating to her when she doesn't have it..HOWEVER daddy has a different agenda!!
Until next time...a little sibling love!!


  1. Oh my goodness! The kids are growing to fast! They have both changed so much since the last time we saw them! This summer has gone WAY to fast! :o) See you soon!

  2. They are getting so big! And adorable!!!
