It's been WAY too long!

My has it been a LOOONNNGGGG time since I posted here last! Life continues to get more and more busy and I struggle to find the time to fit everything in. I'd like to be better about posting more frequently though, as I really think it will be fun to look back on all of the memories one day.

Both kids continue to grow like crazy! Kaelyn is doing great without her pacifier and is of course, talking up a storm. I can't believe the intellectual conversations we're able to have with our 2 1/2 year old...it truly amazes me sometimes. I love watching her little mind work as she asked me questions about the world around her. Lately, her favorite thing to do is pretend. She'll come up to us with a pad and paper and say 'what would you like to eat sir?' like a waitress. It's too cute!

She has also started to go through that 'let me do everything on my own' stage. She is getting dressed completely on her own now...and even likes to pick out her own clothes (she LOVES dresses!). She enjoys trying to match them together. She's such a big helper.

Kaden is growing so fast! I can't believe he will be 5 months old this week already. Where does the time go?! WOW! He's such a happy baby...smiling all the time. Last month he started wanted to sit up more and more on his own. We still put plenty of pillows around him in case of an accidental tumble, but he's getting stronger and better at it with each day that passes.

He also loves the sound of his voice and will coo and 'talk' to us all the time. I just love seeing him smile and listening to his sweet little voice and laughs. It's the absolute best. He's definitely a Mommy's boy and enjoys any time we get to spend together. He's still sleeping like a champ and actually getting on to the same sleep routine as Kaelyn pretty much (with a couple more naps of course) which has been really nice!

He's rolling over both ways now...so needless to say, he's not in one spot for very long now. He's always grabbing at toys and wanting to chew on everything. I'm pretty sure one of his bottom front teeth is getting close to coming in, so I'm guessing that's the reason for all the chewing.

The other day I was reminiscing and was almost sad thinking about how fast the time has gone. I cannot believe my little girl is 2 1/2 and my baby is already 5 months. Each stage is so much fun though. We feel truly blessed to be the parents of these two wonderful kids!

As summer nears we're looking forward to warmer weather and more time spent outdoors. I can't wait as we've been couped up for far too long between winter and all the rain we've been getting.

Hope everyone is having a wonderful Spring so far!
