It's about time.

This week it was Monday, then I blinked and found it was Saturday. I literally have no idea where the week went. I have lots of weeks that go quickly, but it has been a long time since I lost 5 days. I am not a fan of that feeling. It really bugs me when I think about all the things that are not tucked in my memory bank, or written about somewhere. I wonder how many things I just didn't notice were happening. It's truly bizarre.

Brooklyn cut her first teeth about a week and a half ago. She is getting so big and she is so fun. She is much quieter than Isabella. I think Brooklyn is going to be a bit of an introvert. She is still social and likes to hang out but she is content to just be in the room with you. She is almost sitting on her own, she gets it and then discovers her toes again and head dives into the floor. She is almost crawling, she's rocking and then just falls over her arms instead of moving them forward. She is adorable and getting more so everyday. I took her in for belated 6 month pictures on Saturday and it was a great time.

Isabella is talking a blue streak 24/7. It's fun but man is it loud. She is also potty trained but if she should happen to be wearing a Pull Up she'll go in there as opposed to taking a break to pee in the toilet. We've put the potty top on the actual toilet now so I don't have to rinse poop off of anything. I like it, a lot. Belle truly amazes me everyday in the things she's picking up. She's also in love. In love with our friend Rory. She asks for him at least once an hour and will not be happy until we tell her we're going to see him later in the day or I let her pretend to talk to him on the phone. He was over last night and when I took her up to bed she said a general good night to everyone, and then a special good night to Rory. I can't get over this infatuation.

Nick finished his course and I think he got a high enough mark to not have to go to school ever. again. I like that. He has been working on the workshop in the garage in his spare time and it's going good. Crop nights are set to begin May 18th! It's been quite impressive to watch Nick do this project as it's his first handyman type project. He's helped a lot of other people with their projects, but he's never led one before. The floor looks fabulous, we're just painting and then we'll be laying laminate and then I get to take over to decorate it!

What else have we been up to? Just the usual day to day stuff but man has it been going by fast. I am at a loss for where the days go. I really would like to slow things down a bit. I like being busy and I like having a tonne of things on my plate but this is a different kind of busyness. I don't know that I can explain it any better than to just say it's different.

Have Belle give Grampa a call - we'd all love to hear her 'blue streak' for a while!

Take care and I hope that time doesn't fly by too quickly for much longer!
