It's been a long time!

A very very long time indeed. Needless to say, we have become very busy. Very. Busy. I hardly have time to do anything except clean up and make food. Or so it seems. While that does sound like a complaint, I'm not complaining. Life is great. We have days that are crazy, days that are frustrating, sleep deprived days, days filled with laughter and games and days where everyone is grumpy.

It has been a year and half (or more?) since the blog has been updated and a lot has changed. Lil is now is grade one (like when did that happen?). Aidan is in JK and loving it. I now only have Aaron at home a few days a week on his own. Some days I feel like time just sped by. Sadly, I think that this feeling will never go away - ever. That is why I haven't updated this blog for so long. I felt that I needed to spend time in the present with my family instead of waiting for the next thing to add to this blog. It sounds weird, but I just wanted to enjoy those moment for what they were and are. (so I apologize to my youngest for not recording his milestones here, but I think he will understand)

All in all we are all doing well. Things are normal, and hectic. Hallowe'en is upon us and I am hoping to have some pictures up for all to see in the near future.

Love and blessings!

Lessons in Relationships from a 2.5 year old

Aidan has been trying to understand (or make us understand) different relationships within our family. Here is what he thinks about Uncle Dael...

Aidan: Aaron is my little brother.
Mom: What is Lilly?
Aidan: She is my sister.
Lilly: I am your big sister (because she has to get that "big" part in there)
Aidan: Uncle Dael is my brother too.
Mom: No, Uncle Dael is my brother.
Aidan: He is not, he is my brother.
Mom: No, he is my brother, that makes him your uncle.
Aidan: No.
Mom: Then what is Uncle Dael?
Aidan: He is my friend.
Mom: Yes he is and he is your uncle.
Aidan: (exasperated) No!
Mom: Then what is Uncle Dael to you?
Aidan: (thinks for a second) Really tall.

Lessons in Anatomy from a 2.5 year old

We were getting ready to head out for a walk this nice sunny day. Aidan doesnt want to get his diaper changed, I am not sure how this conversation came about but here is what happened:

Aidan: Lilly does not have a penis
Mom: She doesn't?
Aidan: No, only I have a penis
Mom: That is because she is a girl.
Aidan: I have a penis, Aaron has a penis, Lilly and you don't have a penis.
Mom: That's right, we are girls and you and Aaron are boys. What does Daddy have?
Aidan: Daddy doesnt have a penis.
Mom: He doesn't?
Aidan: No.
Mom: Well what does Daddy have then? He is a boy like you.
Aidan: No he is not.
Mom: What does Daddy have then?
Aidan: He has a bum. A big bum. (then turns away obviously done with my silly questions, like geez mom...)

When kids dress themselves

I love it... the creativity of an almost 5 yr old... where does the time go?

Had to post this one...

It's not what you think... really. He hurt his finger and had to show daddy... yep that is the truth.

Baby pictures an update

Aaron is quite a happy little boy. These pictures are from February 2010. As you can see he has grown a lot! At the last Dr. appt he was 17 pounds! He is learning to crawl now and can get most places on his tummy, pulling along! Too cute!
