OK, Yes I know that I never update my blog. I have a million excuses, but they all boil down to no one actually reads it, so it is very low priority. But I figured I might add a little not to those who might happen by:-0

Lots has happened since last March. First and foremost we are expecting our third boy in about 6 weeks. We were a bit surprised that we got pregnant so quickly again, but it is such a wonderful thing to be adding to our family again. This has been a fabulous pregnancy (NOTHING like the last two!) I feel truly blessed.

Aaron is growing so fast! He turned two in July. He says the funniest things everyday, has non-stop energy, loves tractors and trains and can be a huge snuggle bug. He is a very loving big brother and likes to have his brother follow him around. He has a great scene of humor and a strong need to be independent. He does things on his schedule and pushing him is really not productive. He loves to sing "I am a Child of God" and says the cutest little prayers ever. He can either melt my heart with "I love you mommy" or crush it with "I don't have to go to time out, you go to time out!" (Which honestly I might actually need to sometimes, but screaming at your mommy is never alright!) He always keeps me learning and growing as a mother and that is what the best part.

Andrew is all smiles!! He has the best smile and laugh ever. He is always happy (even at 4 am! and when he is puking). He loves his big brother and follows him everywhere. He learned to walk at 8 months and is VERY clumsy. He has already been to the ER 3 times for falls and head trauma...only one CAT scan thank heavens! He has bruises on him always and can't go more then two days without bleeding. But, aside from wrapping him in bubble wrap, there is not much we can do. He turned one on the 5th of November and we are excited for him to start talking. He will laugh out loud sometimes and we have no idea at what, I can't wait till he can tell us what is so funny! He is still working on sleeping through the night, but he has gotten better and we can have 4 day stretches of 7 pm - 4 am! He is going to make a very loving and happy big brother.

Logan and I our busy being parents and all that entails. Logan is in his last semester of school, and will graduate in June (YIPPY!). He is currently working for the Census and enjoys working with the community. I have been running a daycare and preschool from our home since March. It is lots of work, but it is really great to be able to stay home with the boys and be involved in their growing everyday.

We love to get out and about as much as we can. We haven't had a non-pregnant summer in 3 years, so it is a little hard, but we make it work. Plus a 2 and 1 year old require a lot of gear to travel :-)

Summer FUN!!
