Long time no post

So this month has been pretty crazy! A lady Jeremy teaches with had a baby and I was going to watch him while she went back to work. I figured it would be a piece of cake, and it was....for the first few days. But as I started to realize how demanding it was, my kids started to retaliate in their own ways. For my kids sake (and my sanity) I've stopped watching the baby now. So hopefully I haven't scared them for life, and we'll get back to normal pretty soon. Tomorrow is my first day to watch just my 2 kids in a month. As much as I'll miss that sweet baby, I'm really excited to be able to play with just Bryn and Kelson tomorrow. I seriously can't get enough of my kids. They just make me so happy.

Kelson is turning into quiet the Mama's boy. He is perfectly content and happy until he sees or hears me. Then he cries until I pick him up. As hard as it can be sometimes, I do really like that at least one of my kids are remotely clingy.
This is a video of Kelsons latest crawl. Each week he has a new way of getting around. Every once in awhile he'll crawl the normal way, or do the butterfly stroke/crawl. But it usually just looks like this. This week he has started a new crawl that is the funniest one yet. I'll try to get some video of it for my own satisfaction, but I know how enjoyable videos are of other peoples kids doing something as exciting as crawling....so I don't know if I'll put it up here. You'll just have to take my word for it. video

Ok I know I'm a dork, but I just had to add these shirts cause I think they're so funny. My poor kids totally need these.

  1. Julie-I'm totally with ya on the crawling thing, Gage definately gets around wherever he needs to, he just has a unique way of doing, it's not the "traditional crawl" method. I'm glad to hear that you aren't babysitting anymore. We really need to try and get together!! Give me a call when you have a free day, or I'll call you. Talk to you soon.
    p.s. funny how we can easily communicate through the blog, like it's so hard to pick up the phone):

  4. I love it when you post. It had been too long. The crawling is qutie cute. Is Brynlie potty trained? Does she wear underwear, or is her diaper always sagging? That is hilarious!

  6. Awww what cute pictures of Kelson! He is so handsome! And haha, I love these shirts. I seriously want to order them. And I hear you on watching other people's kids... you don't think it would be so hard, but you just don't love them the same so it IS hard. It's great that you are just going to hang out with Bryn and Kelson now!!

  7. Long time no chat! I love these pictures and still can't believe how much Kelson looks like Brynlie. You have such a cute family and we can't wait to see you during spring break. Josh will be gone in Scotland, so Jeremy will probably be bored stiff! We'll talk later.

  10. I love the crawl! These babies just grow up too fast ... I am jealous that you get to stay home with your two adorable kids. I had to go back to work this past week and I have been a mess - everyone says it gets better. McKenna needs the shirt as well!
