Yesterday, as I was reading my e-mails, I had read an e-mail stating that it had been over a year since I had posted anything on my blog and that it would be inactivated, if I didn't post anything soon.
This past year has been a roller coaster of activities, emotions, and changes. I am waist deep in the daily obligations of wife, mother, and trying to stay-a-float of the craziness that involves living with all boys!
The thought of my blog, being no-more, tugged at my heart. Many times, I have sat down in front of my lap top, ready to share my joys, frustrations, ocd tendencies, cleaning tips, and crafting, but then found myself at a loss of words. Or, just.plain.tired.
So for my first blog post, I thought it would be fitting to share recent pictures of my boys. As much as I demand time to stand still... it won't!
Cody turned 16 in August. I have been told on many occasions of how handsome he is. And he is! He is very smart, loves to long board, and "hang with his friends". I would like to say that the teenage years have been kind and fun to us... but they have, instead, been a challenge. I am positive that the moment Cody's voice begun to change and pit hairs begun to sprout, aliens invaded his once, bright, and reasonable, brain. We are looking forward to the day when the aliens return his brain to us!
Conner turned 6 in September. SIX! He started kindergarten and is doing very well. Many witnessed me joyfully, frolicking through the tulips, on the first day of school! Oh what a joyous day, it was!
If you have followed my blog, or know me, you will know of the treacherous moments this boy has put us through! He is famous through out our neighborhood and ward! He continues to be my most destructive, emotional, and messy boy. But along with his "crazy side" comes his funny and adorable side. He has definitely created many, forever memories for our family!
Beckham turned one in June. Time has flown by and I don't want him to grown up! I want him to always have that little extra layer of baby fat on him. I want him to never give up his pacifier! If I have it my way, he will always wander our home with his baby blanket, in tow.
Beckham is proving to be just as an active toddler as his big brother, Conner. Lord have mercy! I have a feeling, he will not be as quite and destructive, but time will tell. So far, he loves standing on his tippy toes, reaching for whatever object or objects are with in reach, pulling them down then running away, as fast as he can, as if he is a running back, running for the goal. He's a climber and is very resourceful in using objects to climb to reach things. Baskets, books, toys, diaper boxes, loaf of bread... you name it, he has used it to climb on. My favorite time of the day is when I rock him to sleep every night. Steve is at work, Conner is in bed (usually not asleep yet) and Cody is downstairs, playing his guitar. I know I should be strong and just let him fall asleep on his own, but my heart is just not ready to let go of our precious "alone time"!
Despite my chaotic, crazy, life, right now, my goal is to write on my blog at least once a month, or even more. I have missed my lil 'ol blog-universe and hope to become re-acquainted again.
