mini update

I just tried to take a pic of Dev to add to this post, but I can't locate the camera. Dev will have to have his own little post to show off his handsomeness.

Reese thoroughly enjoys apples. I was hesitant to give her a whole apple at first because I thought there was no way she would actually finish it. Guess what? She did! She loves apples and I like giving them to her because they keep her occupied for a good hour and a half.

Not the greatest picture of my Asher but it does show what an angel face he has. He is the sweetest baby. He hates noise and loudness which is unfortunate, since he was born into the noisiest family ever, but I think he might be getting used to us. He is going to be 11 months old and his method of transportation is still rolling. I LOVE that he is taking his time on everything. I want him to stay a baby as long as possible.

Dev is such a SMART little boy. His vocabulary amazes me daily. He is reading like none other and even reads the scriptures for us at night. The other day I was trying to censor a word I was using out of frustration by spelling it and Devin totally sounded it out and said it! UGH!!! I need to just install a V-Chip in myself. Devin is going to be going to Montessori school next year. The school district is opening one within the Elementary School he attended last year, so we filled out an application and Dev got accepted! We are excited to try it out and see how it goes.

Summer has been busy. We are trying to take field trips and do new things so we don't get bored. All I can say is that a new level of "being a mom is hard" has been introduced to me this summer. It is hard to plan around everyone's schedules and keep the whole crew happy. I am getting better at it though. So, there's the short update. Sorry I suck as a blogger. I am debating just deleting this blog--it's just another source of my feelings of inadequacy. We'll see.

Your kids are getting so big! Reese's hair has grown a lot and I love the curls. I am amazed that she'll eat a whole apple. Kasen takes two bites and lets Murray finish the rest(0: I don't want you to delete your blog-even posting twice a year is great so we know how your family is doing and what you've been up to (and you post way more than that!)

My goodness, your little girl is so beautiful! That hair, wow. I hope you don't get rid of your blog. I love sneaking a peak at your life, even if it's just every once in a while.
