Lost in Summer

Its no secret that Im terrible at blogging. Everytime I decide to do better it seems like there is even more time between posts. Life with two kids is pretty entertaining (after the initial shock of it all). I am trying to be a good mom, and failing, but that is one thing I wont give up trying to get better at, and just maybe by the time my kids are moving out I will finally get it.

Arvella is huge now, by the way. We are just a few days shy of 7 months for her and I am still trying to figure out where April, May and June went. Here we are approaching August and Im beginning to realize life isnt going to slow down anytime soon.

Ira finally is tall enough for me to mark on the height chart we got (it begins at 36" off the floor) The other day I turned around and he could reach the light switch...seriously? Not to mention he drags chairs from the dining room into the kitchen to score a muffin or piece of gum off the counter...he is too smart!
He sat next to me tonight putting a 25 piece puzzle together..by himself. I was pretty darn impressed with the kid.

Summer has flown by, and we have enjoyed it. Especially the time we had with Kristi and her family. Ira and Dalley got to spend a week with each other and I am pretty convinced that they will continue to be good friend as they grow up (if Ira quits picking on him so much). Our newest niece Whitlee Jane, is a little treasure and it was so great to be able to be with Shawn's family for a week. We are looking forward to Christmas at the ranch.

well now that I have had to refinish this post about 3 different times I am annoyed and ready for bed, but I wont let that be the reason I dont blog again for awhile.. you will find my 2 excuses below...I will try to not be away too long.

I love these pictures. I can hardly wait to get up there and hug those two. I guess it won't be a very long wait with the way time is flying by. And,by the way, you are an awesome Mom.
