Its AUGUST! School starts in TWO WEEKS?? WHAT HAPPENED TO THE SUMMER I WAITED SO LONG FOR?
I haven't been blogging, the laundry room is still a heap of junk-storage, and there are baskets of clothes waiting to be folded. As i work on that, I see more evidence of fleeting time...there is ALWAYS one stack where i put the clothes that don't fit Molly anymore. Did she have a growing spurt? or was I just not paying close enought attention?
My life is still a blur...and I do not like it one bit. Work+shop+home+supper+playtime+bed....rinse and repeat....try to throw in some bill paying, signing classes, marriage tending, etc...and UNCLE!! I GIVE!!
Sometimes i feel like i barely am keeping my domestic head above the level of toys strewn across my livingroom.
This weekend though, it all comes to a stop (except for the hourly vacuuming) because my little g-baby Aubrey Jo is here. She's a mess, but a more cautious mess this time. I can't miss seeing her for more than a week, because she DRASTICALLY changes daily. She's growing too fast and that little brain is sucking up data at warp speed.
we have already taught her to say "bill" !! My youngest son is the light of her life, and is also down visiting this weekend. They play the "blubb blubb flap your finger on your lip" game...and now she says BILL!! followed by that motion/noise. (too cute)
She woke up this morning, before anyone else, and although happy to see me come to rescue her from the pack N play...her first word was "Maul" an appropriate word for her doting aunt, Molly Kate.
Molly is stingy with her toys, More stingy with her Brother and now there is a fight over the tippy cups....but still....Aubrey Adores Molly more than anyone else. :-)
AJ is still a monkey butt...but evidently has learned a few hard knock lessons, as she doesn't fly off the couch anymore but slides down, and if she should happen to get stuck on her descent...SCREAMS FOR PA PA!! lmao!
I just watched her dump her cereal bowl (no milk) on the floor, and look up innocently at bill and say "Oh Oh" For one fleeting second, with her big, bright, lashfilled eyes...and the curls at the back of her head...i saw Gabe. Her daddy, my baby.
Where did the time go???
Another year older!
