10 Months

Oh me, oh my....where has the time gone? The twins are 10 months now. R is combat crawling and pulling himself to a stand. The kid is a bit of a menace. N is just beautiful and talking up a storm. Max is mostly doing great except for the potty mouth, and walking down the street by himself this morning while we were loading the car, and pulling down his drawers to pee on the grass today at the zoo. Ah, I think (and hope and pray) just a typical energetic smart 3.5 year old. He loves being a big brother. It was his idea to have matching outfits with his brother and he picked them out himself with his Nana. I can't tell you how busy and tired I am. I've thought about doing a day in the life post, but too much happens in a day so I can't remember and don't have the time.

Twins first Zoo Outing

Home after the Zoo, Finally able to crawl and move.

Note that look on N's face. Like, what Mom, you don't see this? Am I a floor mat? I think not!

Three things from this weekend that still have me laughing.....

1) About 4 or 5 pm on Saturday, my mom looks over to me and says "I feel very useful. I'm not sure how you'd do it without my help." To which I replied, that a lot less would get done and there would be a lot more crying.

2) Sunday morning we are on our way to church and my mom leaves a message for someone saying "It's 7:30, we're going to 7:15 mass". Hey, I'm convinced that God is glad we actually made it. He knows how hard it is to pack it all up and head out. Often if feels like moving a small army. I did it two days in a row. Have I mentioned I'm tired? I'm only still going because my blood is now sugar water. The Easter Bunny did a good job of not OD'ing on candy and getting toys and other such stuff. However, Aunt Kris sent home her "left overs" causing the need to make up for sleep with candy, candy, and more candy. Egads, I've started bagging it to store away. It must go soon.

3) This picture.....

ps. I tried to post pictures last night, but it took forever to load, then I got booted out and would have had to start over and I just didn't have it in me. Sleep called.

Oh, these are fabulous pictures! You have such a lovely family. The boys look cute dressed alike, and N is just darling. I hear you on being too tired to post - these days I'm too tired to do much of anything.

Oh, so much cute-- I am rendered speechless! :):) LOVE that Max picked out matching shirts for himself and Ray! All the pictures of your HIGHLY photogenic family are great, but I especially love the dog-pile candids!

Praying for more sleep for you.

Love, Laura
