It's so strange to me how the simple day to day can be so crazy around here. I remember telling Colby when we were talking about having another baby that I wanted a house full of chaos, I wanted the busy days of sports practice and dance class and all the many activities that kids get involved with. So far we haven't even reached those activities and yet we stay so busy.
Growing up I always thought my mom just came up with chores for us, I really didn't think there could actually be that much to keeping a house of 4 clean. I was wrong!!! :o) I have to say I can't wait till the kids are old enough to get a daily list of chores...does that make me a bad mom?! haha! They have their regular things they do like pick up their toys and clothes and take their dishes to the sink, things like that. But the day they can do laundry will be a good day!!! :o) There's so much to keeping a house running smoothly and i'm still learning what all it takes, we have way to many bumpy days around here.
Konner has started asking questions like crazy, since he started talking he's asked questions but now they're getting a little bit harder. He now wants to know what everything means, plus he loves to talk so if he doesn't have anything to say he'll come up with something! "Mommy, what does what mean?" "Mommy, why is the sun the sun?" "Mommy, what does because mean?" Those are the times I just have to tell him to stop talking and silence is a good thing! haha! He's such an awesome little boy though and i'm learning all the time how to mother a boy, it's SOOO different than mothering girls! In the last few months he's started not wanting to much affection from me, it's been awhile since i've been able to hug him very much but it's continuing to increase. The other day Lexi was still sleeping and Konner came and sat with me while we watched a movie, he actually let me snuggle him a little bit. Of course as soon as Lexi came in the room he had to get up, he couldn't let sister see him snuggling with mommy. I guess my little boy is growing up!
Lexi is my major drama queen! I told my sister a while back that I don't know where the kids get their dramatics from, I mean I wasn't that dramatic as a kid! Of course she reminded me that um..yes I was! haha! It's so funny to me how often the end of the world comes around here, at least that's what Lexi thinks. She's also my strong willed child, she's only 2 and already she tries to out last me when it's something she doesn't want to do. It's so funny to me that she thinks "no" will actually work! :o) I guess it's something she has to try out though, i'm just having to remind myself to train her will. Being a girl with a strong will can actually be a great thing ans long as her will gets shaped right. Thank goodness for our church, I wouldn't have a clue if it wasn't for our pastor's teaching us regularly how do train these kids!
Logyn is doing awesome, she's growing like a weed and wants to bad to be big like brother and sis. She just follows them around all the time now, of course by the time they've gone in 3 circles she's starting on her first one but she'll catch them soon enough! We're going to go up to Colby's work tomorrow and take some new pics of the kids, it's been forever since we've taken some good pictures of them and they're growing and changing so fast. I'm excited to get them done though! I'll have to post some of them as well as some of Lexi and Logyn at the same age, those girls look SO much alike it's crazy! It's a good thing we keep their pictures separate because I wouldn't be able to tell them apart otherwise!
Colby and I are still doing great, we just had our 5 year anniversary a couple weeks ago, we got to get away for the weekend without the kids which was awesome. I can't believe it's been 5 years already! It's feels like so much longer sometimes, of course a lot has happened in those 5 years! I never though when we got married that by our 5 year anniversary we'd have 3 kids, but I have to say it's been an awesome journey! I told him on our trip that i'm so anxious to see where well be in 5 years, I don't even have a clue honestly. We have some ideas of where we'd like to be but don't really know if we'll actually get there. Colby's starting to pursue his career in fashion photography a bit more which is pretty cool and kinda scary at the same time. If he does end up doing solely fashion photography we'll most likely have to move, I mean there's not a lot of opportunity for fashion work here. Of course we're not really close to that right now so I try to just let go and give all of that to God until the time comes. No need to worry about it right now...easier said than done though that's for sure.
Well it's almost time to get Colby for lunch so I better go...plus it's back to all that house work I was talking about! ;o)
