weekly post

So I didn't get the pictures done last week, ohwell. Megan is at a hard stage.....the stage before crawling. She just will not crawl, she gets up on hands and feet and then pushes back into a sit. She does this over and over and slowly moves around in a big circle. She also rolls to things. I am beginning to think she will just stand up and walk never having crawled. She climbs all over me and pulls herself into a stand. Megan loves stories and songs, I truly mean loves. She absorbs them, she may not look just like me but she loves the written word like me! We have been very spoiled having daddy home every night for the last few weeks and Megan has decided she likes daddy putting her to sleep. The proof is tonight he is gone and she kept waking up crying (for him).

Alexis loves to help in Primary, since we have a gigantic primary we try to be fair and pick their names out each week to help. She got picked for music time and was jumping up and down in pure joy in the hall waiting for them to hide the object. Then later during sharing time she got picked again(music and sharing time use different name containers). She was told it was her lucky day, oh how excited she was. Smile from ear to ear!!! She is such a joy to have around....most of the time! Last night she sleep walked and used the living room carpet as a bathroom,, then she went back to bed with wet clothes. I heard her and went to check and found her in bed. After cleaning her up and putting her in a sleeping bag(really not going to change beding at midnight) I tried to find the puddle. Not finding it I went to bed assuming she peed the bed. Nope Britt found it in front of the TV this morning(luckily seeing it before stepping in it). So now I get to clean the carpets, fun for me!

I was spoiled for my birthday. My friend Jenn arranged a surprise birthday lunch for me on the Friday before. It was fun and nice to go out to eat! Then that night Britt also arranged a little surprise dinner. We already had plans with our friends the Pines he invited the Schaubs and then claimed he was not going to make it. He showed up with a huge bunch of balloons and a gift. He got me a Kindle...I love it. I can't wait to load it full! We had dinner with my family on Sunday. My parents got me a gift card to Amazon so that I can buy the scriptures and other books for my kindle(or what ever I want from Amazon!) I love gift cards!!!! Alexis was sad she didn't get me anything, she didn't help pick out the kindle so she didn't feel it was from her. I got her to feel better by telling her the best gift she can ever give me is a big hug and kiss. Next year Britt is going to let her help buy me a gift. I will try to get pictures done this week, but I am alone so don't hold your breathe!

Weekly update

We are on the count down to Megan crawling. she gets up on her hands and knees(and sometimes feet) she can keep her head up now and is sliding her hands forward. She has gotten back to sitting twice now from her tummy. During the sacrament she looked at me and made this little sound 3 times until I took her from Grandma. Megan is growing up so fast and will be walking before I know it. Megan has mastered drinking out of her sippy cup and surprisingly doesn't spit it out. She still has a 5 bite limit of food and prefers nursing. She is not lacking to much though so I am not worried. Megan was looking at her hand turn and poked her self in the face today. She also was holding her binky and crying, I took it put it in her mouth and she stopped, funny baby. She is so proud of herself and claps a lot!

Alexis is busy cracking us up every time we turn around. We got a new water heater and she has been playing non stop in the box and desperately wants Megan to play with her. So she puts her on a blanket and drags her down to her room and puts her in the box. When I ask her why she says Megan loves to play in the box. How to explain she is not really given a choice. Oh well I would rather they play well then fight! At least she isn't carrying her down the hall. She gave Megan a ride in the little wheel barrel that hooks onto the ride on toy and Grandma's. Oh how they both laughed. Alexis has problems walking...but only when we ask her to do something, suddenly she grows weak. She declared herself the queen and queens don't do anything. If I count backwards starting at 3 she will tell me I did it wrong because I am supposed to start at 1.

My calling is going good. It can be frustrating when teachers don't show without calling or getting a sub but well that is the life of Primary. I have never understood why people don't like it. I have always loved being in with the children. The sweet spirit they have is the best of anywhere in church, hands down. Britt has 2 callings, how that happened I am not sure since he went for so long without one and then within 2 weeks he had 2. We also have such a big ward they are doing there best not to double up callings. He is the 10 year old co-teacher and on the scout committee. Work is going great for him, huge blessing. He has a lofty goal this year to be the top hauler...I hope he can without sacrificing too much family time. A big bonus at the end of the year would be grand too! I promise to do pictures this week.
