I'm Such A Slacker

Really I am. I've been terrible about trying to keep up with my blog. I have things circulating in my brain to blog about, just don't have the time to get them out.

This morning the girls and I went over to St. James and Kelley took their pictures!

Here's a couple sneak peeks she emailed me:

I just love the tutu she had for Alexis to wear! Alexis did good for the first part of the session and then proceed to completely embarrass me with her behavior. She wouldn't cooperate at all. Thankfully, I think we got some good ones before she decided to be Crankzilla.
I love this one of Isabel!! I can't wait to see how the rest of them turned out!

I've also been a slacker with getting their pictures taken. By the time Alexis was 1 I had taken her 4 times for pictures.

This is just Isabel's 2nd and she's 10 months. =( I'm planning on getting more pictures done sometime in September after Isabel turns 1. That will be the ones for the Christmas cards! (I love Christmas, just over 5 months away!)

Isabel is doing this completely adorable thing right now that I love. She shakes her head side to side when we say, no no no no. And she'll bob it up and down when we say yes yes yes yes!!! It's so funny. She's at that really fun stage right now. She took a single step yesterday without holding onto anything, so I don't think it will be much longer before she is walking!

Alexis is still going strong on the potty. Still doing diapers at bedtime, sometimes she wakes up dry, but not real regularly yet. She had an accident or two that first week after she started going. Today was a really strange day. She peed in her pants 3 times today! But then she finally decided to start going on the potty again. Very bizarre.... She's had no trouble with the poopy part of it either. It's all in the potty! Such a financial relief to not be buying diapers for two anymore, and an even BIGGER relief to not have to changer her poopies anymore! YAY!

It's been super hot lately and that makes work super nasty. Last week was just miserable in there. I was fortunate enough to get to work in the AC Tuesday night, but unloaded trailers on Wednesday and Thursday night. I stayed home Friday night because I wasn't feeling well. This week looks like it's going to be pretty much the same as last...ugh.

Our garden is thriving still and Ross is working hard to keep up with it. He's been busy making pickles every few days. I made some salsa this weekend and I'll be making more next weekend also. It was so yummy!

I think I've finally managed to get a handle on the house work, as long as I can keep up with it now. Ross usually helps out with the laundry when I'm working, but we've agreed that I've pretty much got the housework to myself and he's got the garden. It's been a lot since I went back to work, I'm having to let go of trying to keep everything perfect during the week. It's just too hard and I don't get to spend anytime with the girls in the morning if all I'm doing is running around picking up this and that. It can wait until the weekend now.

I've got to run for now, I have housework to do this evening before I start my work week. I'm going to try and schedule a few blog posts for this week. I really have missed it and all of you.
