This and That

I have been off my groove on the blogging thing lately. Ill be honest. Its strictly laziness that has caused the lack of posts. This is my attempt to catch up in form of pics and few words, on the little things that have been happening.
As previously posted AnDee has become a rider of bikes. She is incredibly coordinated and is a pro. We go on lots of walks and bike rides lately so she can show off her new skills. Pep takes his little balance bike and is getting pretty skilled. He can even ride with his feet propped up on the bar all while zig-zagging back and forth down the sidewalk. We talked a little about getting him a new big boy bike too but he told us that he already had a bike and that he didn't need a new one because he likes his bike because its black and old.

Joseph has discovered the joy of tree climbing.

AnDee has got some good play time in with one of her besties

Isaac has become a hipster and started eating entire giant apples

and toilet paper.....
Ok so this kid has a really weird obsession with toilet paper. And I may or may not let him just eat it as long as its only tiny pieces. I know its gross but its like a never ending battle. Sometimes he will walk up to me with a little piece and offer it to me for me to eat. When I refuse he always pops it in his mouth like I just made his day by not making him share his candy. I hope he grows out of this.

We made shields out of card board and tin-foil. And then we had battles using moms kitchen spoons as swords.
 We have finally started meeting neighbors and making new friends.
The boy got a hair cut
The girl has started (what her mom deems) a bad habit. (Halo at 4 should not be an option)

And the monkey is learning how to help clean up.
 He is also starting to use a few words. His favorites are "uh oh!" and "Ba-ba". He is addicted to the bottle. He can be in full on melt down/fit throwing mode and if you simply say the words "Do you want a baba?" he automatically starts laughing. Its hilarious.
He is currently in the process of getting one front tooth and 4 (yes 4!!) molars. The poor kid is oozing boogers and is totally miserable. However he is a champ and still manages to put on a happy face most of the time. He also spends a lot of time like this
cause you can't feel the pain when you are asleep.

Things are fairly busy, as they are for most people. Mom is still trying to stick with the running thing and running 6 miles doesn't seem SO bad anymore. Her friends are trying to talk her in to a marathon... ha! When 6 miles seems hard, 26 seems impossible.
Dad went on a little trip to Utah for a few days to go camping and he is rocking things at work and really seems to like it.
We are sure blessed to have such awesome kids and amazing people that love us and support us. We are excited to head to Utah in a few weeks but super sad that we have to leave dad behind for the first little while. Im not sure how we are gonna cope with that. AnDee has already shed many tears over this and moms not fairing much better.... a month isn't TOO long to take off from work, is it? ;)

  1. So fun! I'm jealous that you guys are leaving in a few weeks. It seems like forever until we go! And that picture of Ike eating the toilet paper kills me! Hahaha!
