Still here.....

I've got so much to say but there just hasn't been any time lately.
Life has been a tad bit crazy lately. 
Some good, some bad, some just life.
I've barely taken any pictures lately, but I did snap this cute one on Sunday.

Here's a quick update on everyone:
Will is 10 months old. It deserves it's own post, but that probably won't happen. He ate real mac & cheese for dinner tonight and said "dada" for the first time. The word"Dada" was not connected to anything. It had nothing to do with his real "dada" since daddy is out of town right now. But it was cute none the less and he'll figure out soon enough that his first word really does have meaning :)

Christian hates school. He tells me everyday. This situation also deserves it's own post. So I'll have to get back to it later.  It makes me sad, but honestly doesn't surprise me in the least. We're dealing with it. The thumb fairy is coming to our house tomorrow night. Bet you didn't know there was a "thumb fairy." But there is in fact one that watches you at night to see if you suck your thumb. We have a thumb sucking situation that we're going to tackle this weekend. I'm praying about it already because it's going to get ugly before it gets better! You can't take a thumb away and we've previously tried lots of different tactics but the thumb HAS GOT TO GO! Christian is about to get is front top tooth, so it's now or ....buck teeth will be in our future. I've been a little soft on this situation since I happen to have sucked my own thumb until I was ((gasp)) eight years old. I made the very, very poor parenting mistake of telling Christian that one time.

McKenna is just wild. Seriously...loud, funny, sneaky and smart. She sort of reminds me of Curious George these days with some of her antics. She can make a mess faster than anyone I know and now that she's into spelling she likes to practice her spelling on the walls or on toys or on any available flat surface. Her grandparents think she's brilliant but her mother is not impressed.

I've missed you!! Sorry ryan is gone again. I know that .makes days longer and more tiring. Love that will ate realmac and cheese - its the best!!!! Can't believe he is soon to be one!!!! No surprising about Christian "hating" school. My boys sometimes go thru a spell and say the same thing. They love it, but hear all the lids saying it, and often would rather be lazy and play. Hang in there. It's not forever. And mckenna. Cracks me up. I have one here to except her name is Callie. Also too smart for her own good. Keep hanging on with her and.pick your battles. I'm guessing she likes to be in charge so find some thing that she can be the boss of!!! I love you - and you are a great mom!!!

That McKenna... what a little joy she is! Sounds just like SW!
Reagan just stopped sucking his thumb at eight and I stopped at eight... we tried everything with Regs and it was awful. Somehow he just stopped one week. I will pray it isn't as ugly as it seems like it is going to be!
