2011 stinks

the last month has been rough we had the stomach flu, then the flu flu, then the stomach flu again. we have had many issues with our car being written off and getting a new one. we finally have a 2008 honda civic, but are still sorting through issues with the insurance. things have just been not simple and we are stressed. so I wanted to write and remember all the good things that are going on among the chaos.

my kids are adorable pretty much.

dean sucks HARD at sleeping, but we are starting sleep training tonight so pray for us that it works and pray for my sanity the first few hard nights.

other than that dean is sooo close to walking he takes a few steps here and there between me and branden, but keeps getting sick and so gets slowed down. I'm convinced he'd have been walking awhile ago had we not had so much sickness.

Dean and Jack still love eachothr and have daily wrestling/hug matches on the floor, that are ending in tears for one of them less and less every week that passes.

He is the happiest and smiliest baby ever and just oodles of fun. you can't help but love him when you see him.

Jack is just hilarious. we were playing witht he big box for our new stroller yesturday. Branden andI were putting it over him and then pretending to go to bed. He would knock on the box and say "i'm in here" until we came. HILARIOUS.

Jack is getting attitude and its so funny we almost pee our pants. if he doesn't like what you say or do. he says fine, crosses his arms and stomps off. then comes back 20 seconds later laughing and having a great time.

He loves running behind the couch then jumping out hugging me and saying I miss you mama. it melts my heart every time.

And everytime he gets sad he comes running to me. "I need a huggie mommy" so cute.

and when I want to kiss him and he doesn't want me to he says "no no smoochie Mommy"

I just love this stage. its so funny. He's finaally starting to become aware of his bodily functions, so perhaps we'll trying potting training in a few months. but whenever he farts (or hears Branden or I fart) he says "what sound?" and then aanswers "the sound of pooing" hahaha. LOVE IT>

so although life is a bit much right now i love that I get to be home with my kidlets full time right now and most of the time (when they aren't waking me up at 3am to be bed for the 5th time or covered in barf screaming) they are totally adorable.
