I have been delightfully MIA these past weeks. I have needed the break. Life is just to full of things to think of and then suddenly I realized you all probably thought I had died or at least given up on blogging!
Well, I'm still around a kicking (although I have days I'm not sure). Rod got back from camp and it's been a whirlwind of activities since. We had to readjust to a schedule and get back into the swing of things (ya mean, I have to start cooking dinner again?!). We've had birthday parties to attend and friends to catch up with. And then I up and decided, as if we werent' busy enough, to paint our living room! What is wrong with me?
But just in case you're wondering, is there anything exciting and new happening at the Sills' home? Here are the highlights involving mostly my little men. I so love to talk or rather blog about them :-)
Caleb has finally decided to talk! At 16 months our little Super Bubby will at least attempt to say new words and ask for what he wants (as opposed to pointing). What can I say, his tongue doesn't co-operate much but at least he's trying. Some words he's super at: ball, baby, daddy, Isaac, cracker, juice, down. And he's an expert at nodding his head just in case he can't think of a word to say. I'm still stumped that he can say 'isaac' but not 'mommy'. Oh well.
We finally decided to get out in the sun. Summer is only half way over but it's never too late, I guess, to start getting into the Summer spirit. We've been swimming at grandma's every week, finally going on picnics and playing at the park. I'm a little worn out but I have some seriously happy kids.
Tonight is a LONG overdue date night! Whoop-eeeee! Finally some adult time. No sharing food with kids. No answering a million questions. No wiping boogers off my clothes. I smell good. I have on nice clothes. I'm eating at a nice restaurant. Can you tell, I'm a little excited!? Ok, maybe more than a little. It's been way too long since Rod and I went on a date. And since we have the most awesome babysitter in McLean Co, I have no worries (btw, thanks Emma!).
I need to tell someone besides my hubby that I am so stinkin' in love with him! Even though Rod was only gone a week (and I seriously missed him like crazy) it took some getting used to when he got home. What I'm thankful for is how patient he is with me (and my stubborn, prideful head). So here's a shout out to a great man that makes me a better person. It's so true.
Ok, gotta go! I'm going to be late for date night!
What's new in your life? Anything exciting? Please share!
