Let's try this again!

There are so many things that happen with the kids that I don't want to forget! So I decided it's time to archive them! Let's start with an update on everyone....

 Kevin is now 7 and a half months old and I can't believe how fast it's going. I thought time when Ella was a baby flew, but it's going even faster with Kevin. Probably because I spend more time chasing after Ella! He already weighs 21 pounds and has stayed in the 97% for growth. He LOVES to eat. And he eats a lot. So far he eats peaches, bananas, prunes, apples, pears, green beans, peas, carrots, sweet potatoes, and squash. He crawls all over the place now. Especially if he's on a mission for something. But he also spends a lot of his time on the floor trying to figure out how to stand up. I have a feeling it won't be long, maybe a few more weeks, until he's figured out how to grab on to things to pull himself up. If you hold his hands he will take steps by himself. I am not ready for a walking baby...
He has two teeth already which came as a surprise to me, because Ella didn't get her first tooth until she was 10 months old!
He's also a bit of a Mama's boy. He seems to not go to sleep as well when Daddy puts him to bed. And he reaches for Mommy a lot. And I'm really ok with this because Ella was always a Daddy's Girl.

Ella is going to turn 3 in August, can you believe it??? She's 2 and she acts it. I really think I spend half of my day dealing with tantrums and time-outs. But she's also too cute for words! She gets into all kinds of trouble, I will outline that later. She loves to talk and read books. Going to Storytime at the Library is one of her favorite things to do. Right along with blowing bubbles, playing outside with water, sidewalk chalk, going on walks and camping. She loves to go camping!

Also, we are potty training!!! We have had 4 very successful days now so I'm finally starting to feel optimistic that this time might be for real! The thing is, you have to watch her do it because she dumps her potty chair out in the toilet herself right after she pees so if you aren't there, you'll miss that she even went!

David is still working at Chase and I am still an awesome, full time mom! I do teach a few piano lessons but I'd like to leave that and maybe do some more in-home childcare. I posted an ad on Craigslist. We just need to start moving forward to achieve some dreams of building a home around Sunbury and moving before Ella starts Kindergarden.
