The lazy days of summer.

That phrase couldn't be farther from the truth. We are so freaking crazy busy these days, it's insane. I blogged all about our last few days on my other blog, so I won't repeat it all here.

My kids are growing up. Here is photographic proof...




Let's see. Karl's 2nd tooth is still not popped through, but his first one is pretty far in. It's so cute. And he's bit me twice now. Rad. Biting isn't a big deal, but it does happen.

Karl's new trick is sitting up. Finally. This boy is ~slow~ with his milestones! But perfectly okay with me.

Ella and Allison are awesome big sisters.

Ella has the biggest smart mouth EVER. I'm filled with joy while it also drives me fucking insane.

Allison is still my little tough girl who will also fall to pieces if I ask Ella to get a diaper instead of her. A tough drama queen. What a combo.

It does sound like it has been busy. I can't believe how big they all are, especially Karl. I could swear that he was just born.

For some reason this post made me relive the babysitting last night. Allie-"Um are your shoes dirty because this is new carpet" Ella-"Actually it's old, we got it in January". Not so funny when I write it but I am still laughing about that and the many other hilarious things they threw at me last night. Good thing I've been around the block with them (esp. Ella. That girl should be a government negotiator-she could talk Osama bin Laden out of that cave, I tell you) I just can't believe any of them are as big as they are! What happened to Ella's little baby ear that I wanted to bite(o.k. eat-I know I'm weird)?

He's getting so big! Sam is behind Aidan as far as milestones too. He's not really sitting up yet but he's crawling all over the place and getting into everything.

All three are adorable! I love the differences in personalities.

Andrew didn't sit until 7 months, and didn't walk (like, all the time, not just across the room) until 17 months!

Great pic!

Karl doesn't sound too far behind..

Lisa said...

The kids are really adorable and growing up fast. Very cute pic...

I love the tough drama queen... it should make the teenage years very interesting. I'm sure the smart mouth will also add to the eventfulness of the teenage years in your house. You've got lots of fun times to look forward to. At least you know that the girls will never let themselves be walked all over.

They are so adorable- and getting so big! I love Karl's expression with the girls, such a ham!

Love the picture, they're all getting so big! Ours still aren't sitting up on their own at 7 months, but they're definitely on the move.

Michelle said...

Hey there! Its been a while I know..sorry. I started working! That aside, I can't believe Karl is 6 months!! Holy Shit did that time fly!

Allie sounds like a riot! And Ella starts school on the 10th!!! WHOA! We still haven't found out when Cassandra starts or what teacher she has but less if she is going in the morning or afternoon. Do they have full day kindergarten there or half day?? Which one is Ella going to?
It was nice catching up with things your way! I'll try and be a better blogger/reader. *hugs*

Gorgeous picture! LOVE it! Like everyone else, I can't get over how big they're getting! And for what it's worth, every year I have a few tough drama queens in my classes...never boring, that's for sure! :D
