My Growing Kids

0 Pensive Blurps
I love motherhood. It is the greatest thing I have ever done and will be the greatest thing I will ever do. 

It is my greatest achievement, even on my worst of days. My proudest moments are when I am watching them, my beautiful children. They truly are the best.

I cannot believe how big they are! Aiden is 3 and a half. He will be 4 come August. He is a computer whiz, the best big brother, a crazy big helper, polite, and imaginative! He thinks he's really funny! 

and I guess I have to agree :) He loves dancing and singing, playing on the computer, rough housing, playing with his play dough and playing outside! He's a great friend!! Always having play dates and hanging with his buddies! He is the best snuggler in the world and I cherish every moment he holds me! 

He is such a proud big brother! Always loving and smooching and doting upon his baby sister!! Always trying his best to make her laugh!! And he's a pro at it!! 

He is enthusiastic about just about everything!! He's energetic and passionate and creative and rambunctious!! 

And probably one of the bravest and toughest kids that I know! I love him ever so much!!

Eva, oh my sweet little Eva Ryann. She is almost ONE! I cannot believe how fast the year has flown! She is HUGE!!! My beautiful little chunk :) She crawls faster than anyone's business! She is ticklish beyond belief! Her neck especially, like her Grandma Terri :) Her big beautiful eyes remind me of her Aunt Nikki---makes me smile every time I catch it. 

She loves her big brother the most, still! But is a big snuggler when it comes to her daddy! She plays peekaboo, gives high fives, waves and says bye bye, gives kisses and blows kisses too! 

And OH MY GOSH does she LOVE her food?!?! Forget that baby crap! Her favorite is Pizza!! And has been for a couple of months now. But she also loves pasta and fruit and vegetables and well, i guess there is nothing that we have given her that she hasn't devoured!!

She's the happiest when she's eating or playing with her brother! She has the most animated expressions!! She cracks me up!

She has beautiful strawberry blond hair that I am just SOOO excited for-- I can't wait until it grows out so that I can play with it!! So much love for my baby girl!

They make me more proud than anything on this earth. They are the best! I am such a crazy lucky mom!!!

Failing, On Average.

I don't even know when my last blog was!! Yes, I could go and look, but I'm lazy, clearly, hence the no blogging. duh.

So since last time....

Pretty sure it was about my resolutions and how I am going to be a better person, better blogger, better mother, blah blah blah... yeah... I fail.

I haven't blogged since.

Ok, I'll go and look it up.... My resolutions were:

1. Watch less TV.
2. Do Laundry Weekly.
3. Maintain my Stellar GPA
4. Work Out
5. Blog
6. Date Night
7. Temple Trips
8. New Calling
9. Take time to breathe.

Lets grade my progress thus far, shall we?!

1. Less TV? C--I am watching a bit less during the day. Honestly, I am. But shows that aren't scary or inappropriate, I'll still try to watch while the kids play independently.... And I haven't actually cut any of my shows out of my weekly "must stay caught up" list.... But, I do keep many shows until after bedtime... which means less during the day and more time for my kids.. so that is better, but not my best.

2. Do Laundry Weekly. C, again--- I do do the laundry at least bi-weekly. But I still don't fold it. Gahhh, MUST FOLD AT LEAST ONE LOAD THIS WEEK!!!!

3. Maintain my stellar GPA--F. I call em like I see them and that is the grade that I will more than likely be receiving from the one class on my schedule this semester that I ONLY took to get my credit count up. I don't need it to graduate and it truly isn't even adding to my knowledge in any helpful manner. Its an online course and I just don't care anymore!! I am so ready to be done--IN ONE MONTH-- that I just, don't care. So yes, I fail this one. But my other classes, the ones I DO need to graduate, those are going amazingly. At least in the sense that I am rocking them! I don't care for the classes, honestly. The teacher somehow manages to make a 4 hour class out of 1 hours worth of content... its so pointless and wasteful... but I'm acing them,.

4. Work Out-- This week? F. A couple weeks ago? A+. I was working out daily with TK and his brother Ben. But the kids were getting the crummy end of it.. Eva was missing at least 1 nap daily because of it and being such a grumpy butt. So I had to drop out... But the weather is getting good again, maybe I can find a way to get up early and run.. or do a quick home workout during nap... we'll see.

5. Blog. F. Bottom line. F- if it were a thing.

6. Date night. F. Next month is our anniversary. Maybe we'll do something then.

7. Temple trips. F. None thus far.

8. New Calling- A+. I am loving it! I couldn't have hoped for it to go better than it is. I love it!!!!!

9. Breathing. Yes, still doing that. A. (yay for easy resolutions!)

See, told you I fail. Maybe better luck this quarter...
