Lack of Posts

I am boring lately.  I guess I am too wrapped up and busy in my life to blog about it.  I need to slow down.  First, the obligatory pics of my cute kids:
Asher is getting so big.  He will be 6 months old in a few days.  Where has time gone?  Right now he is loving hearing himself talk.  He will talk and squeal and make the most un-manly noises.  He has found his feet and he loves to try and get them in his mouth.  He is also a thumb sucker.  Reesie and Dev were never thumb suckers so I think this is an adorable habit.  I probably won't be thinking that in a few months though.  He rolled over a few weeks ago, twice in the same day, but apparently it's not all it's cracked up to be because he hasn't done it since.  I tried feeding him rice cereal but it makes him gag and look at me like he is pleading with me to stop, so I haven't tried it again in awhile.  He also loves the jumperoo.  He goes buck wild in that thing.  I will have to get a video of it on here.

Reese is such a joy to us.  She is constantly making us laugh and coming up with amusing things to do.  She loves to climb into the jumperoo and bottom out.  She loves to ride her "hee-haw," she loves to play with her Wall-e game and pretend she is Wall-e.  She especially loves chasing Devin around and doing/playing what ever he is doing.  Lately she has been calling me a "bad girl" every time she doesn't get her way.  Reesie wakes up asking for "nummy nummy nummies" and goes to bed doing the same thing.  She will bring me a cup and a can of Diet Dr. Pepper and fully expect and believe that I will actually fill her cup up with it.  We finally moved her into a big girl bed and she has done so well with it.  She is such a fun girl.

Devin is doing so well in school (minus the fight he got into last month!).  I am amazed at all he knows.  He is reading and spelling his sight words, doing basic addition and subtraction on his own, making patterns, writing stories, reciting his ABC's, you get the picture.  He is the sweetest big brother to both Reese and Asher.  He is always trying to help them and make them happy (that is when he is not making Reese scream).  He can make Asher give the biggest smile and a great big laugh.  He loves playing Lego Starwars and Lego Indiana Jones on the Wii and he is really good!  He has beaten Lego Starwars already and is working on Indiana Jones.  He loves to play outside and his favorite outside toys are sticks and rocks.  Lucky me, I don't have to buy anything.  Devin is such a daddy's boy and loves to just be with Brad.

Brad and I are good.  Not much to report on us.  We bit the bullet and bought a new vehicle because I was sick and tired of my van breaking down.  It's a 2008 Honda Pilot.  I love it, it's a cute car and not a mini-van!

There's the boring update.

PS-Kristin in TX, if you are reading this, what happened to your blog?
