Catching up...

I didn't mean to run away for so long, but it seems like there is always something more important than blogging to be done. The good news is that I've found our house under the piles of laundry and dishes, everyone is well, and I'm starting to get some deep cleaning and decluttering checked off of my list as well. That means a bit more time for blogging might find its way into my schedule in the near future. Of course, as soon as I say that something else will probably come up.

In the process of focusing on getting things up and running a bit more smoothly around here, I had several weeks worth of photos hanging out on my memory card. Getting those onto the computer was a good little recap of what we've actually been up to.

Jonathan is done with basketball now, but he has a team party coming up. He says he wants to play again next year, but let's just say it wasn't as easy for him as soccer was. It doesn't help that he got my genes, and he was a head shorter than some of the other kids. He had fun, and he did get up the nerve to take a shot a couple of times. He even made 2 baskets during practice.

This photo is from David's birthday. It was sooo windy out there again. It was definitely reminiscent of the day we had his service. I'm just wondering now why Jonathan didn't have a coat on. It was freezing.

You can also see that we're definitely in trouble now. Benjamin had a cold last week, and he ended up taking breathing treatments for several days. I stayed home with him on Thursday to give him his treatments while Justin took Jonathan to his Classical group. I was being sneaky catching him playing while the big boys were out.

Then when I turned back around, this is what I saw. He was 8 months and 1 day. I'm not ready for this.

Uh oh. It definitely wasn't a fluke, and I'm very surprised we haven't had a big goose egg on that head yet. He's keeping me busy.

So that's what we've been up to. That and a lot of cleaning, dishes, and decluttering.


  1. The fun is only beginning. It's about time we got some more pictures of the two wonderful boys. LOL

  2. These pictures make me even more excited to be coming for my secret visit this weekend. It will be so much fun... I can't wait and I'll see you all in just a few more days!

  3. What a cutie. He looks so proud of himself!

    When my son first started walking a few months ago, he fell into a drawer corner and cut himself near his eye. I thought he was fine but my husband was freaked out about it and wanted me to take him to an emergency clinic.

    On the way there, I started thinking, the child is COVERED in bruises from falls. Goose eggs and big green spots all over his little face and legs. And then I bring him in with a cut eye? Is the doctor going to call CPS on me? I was honestly playing out the whole scenario in my mind and getting totally paranoid.

    We got there, and the doctor looked at him and said, "When my son was a baby, his mother could not get his 1 year portraits taken until he was 18 months old, because his face was always covered in bruises too."
