Not much news to share

My sister emailed me today and reminded me that we have this blog and we needed to update it. Thanks Rachel. I really don't have a lot to say.  Will is starting to talk a lot more and starting to make more sense to more people, so that's good.  I can't believe how big he is!  It seems like just the other day he was born, and now he's this tall, skinny, hilarious little man.  Everyone seems to think he's 3 because he's so tall. Kids grow way too fast, don't they!?  He's such a sweet little boy sometimes, and sometimes he's a crazy, wild animal that needs to be caged. :) Don't worry we don't actually cage him!

Kaela is growing too.  Length wise, I think she's started to slow down a bit, but she's 
really starting to look and act more like a little girl/toddler then a baby.  She will sit up now on her own if I sit her up. She does fall over after a little while, which usually causes tears, but she loves to sit up on her own.  She can't get to the sitting position from laying, but she's starting to turn herself when she gets up on her knees and then sits on her bottom. She looks so cute when she sits up. She plays peek a boo which is so cute, she loves to clap and say 'yea!,' wave bye bye or "HI" and loves to laugh at her silly brother. She's almost 1 and I can't believe it!! Her birthday is June 21st, which just happens to be the first day of he LPA conference in Detroit and the first day of summer.  I found out today that Rachel, my sister, or Aunt Rachie is coming home to visit June 25-29 and we are so excited that she will be here for some of the conference and Kaela's bday party!!!  We know it's close to the conference, but we would love to have our lp friends and families in the area join us for some food, cake and fun, if you are free the 28th of June. 

As I said, not much going on right now, so I will leave you 
with some cute pictures of the kids.

I just read all of your blogs! I'm happy to see updates because I don't ever see you anymore. I can't believe there are only 84 known cases in the WORLD, thats insane. When exactly is her birthday party?

Sarah,

I love the picture of Will and Kaela cuddling! I know it is great to see my kids acting loving - becuase most of the time they are fighting! Once Trace got his balance and started sitting if we sit him up, he quickly figured out how to get to sitting, a lot by crawling over and starting to pull up on something, then sit down. Kaela will get it quickly!

Boy are you right about how much your children have changed! It's amazing. Will looks so grown up and Kaela is not an infant anymore. They are so cute Sarah! Love the bow in Kaela's hair.

Tonya said...

AWWW!! She's sitting up!!!! I am so proud!!

Will has changed since you guys were here!! What a handsome boy! Watch out for the girls!!

We will be there!! I'll email you for more info!!

Charmaine said...

Yes indeed, she is just becoming more beautiful as each day goes by!!!

I think us blog moms were thinking the same thing the past few days our little ones are not so little anymore!!!!

Katie- her party will be the 28th of June. I will send invites out. I'm guessing around it will be around 2? I should really figure it out huh??

We will miss all of you who are too far away. Hopefully one day we will all be able to get together and throw a big party :)

Tonya- I'm so glad you guys are going to come!! Kaela is very excited to see Knoah. Hannah, Jacob and Will are of course invited too!! We are working on getting some fun things for the older kids...maybe a moon bounce or something. So we can't wait to see you- I will email you with more info.

Jennifer- If you and Cat and Owen can make it we'd love to see you...(Dan too of course ;) )

I don't know why but this post makes me miss you guys so much more! Kaela does look extra cute sitting up. I wish I could steal them aways from you. They're so cute. I love you guys so much and I can't wait to see you!!

They are the cutest. I love Kaela's hair, she looks like a kid now!!!! Will is getting so big too. Wish we lived closer to come to the party. Wish her a Happy Bday from her friend JD!!!

I love the new pictures. Preston will truly be so jealous when I show him the Thomas pictures! The last picture should be in a frame displayed in your house. It is truly precious.
So sad I am no where near the area. I think next year I need to plan a trip out that way!

What a cutie! Sure, you can link to my blog. I am going to link yours to mine. So nice to meet you, and I look forward to reading more about Kaela.

Danielle said...

Hi Sarah!! I got your comment, thank you so much, I appreciate the kind words! And I've checking out yours for some time now, Kaela is just adorable! I so wish we lived close to other families, it would be so great to meet you and everyone else!
