Ahhh! Now that we've been having some good summer weather the kids and I are really enjoying it! I've been watching my niece Cali for the last two weeks (4 days a week) and having a third child in between the ages my two is definitely a lot busier! It makes the day fly by and since we can be outside I can get my tan on:) I will be watching her until my sis-in-law Julie goes on mat leave, probably in Oct?
Declan will be 18 months this month and wow has he recently grown up! He's trying so hard to repeat words and talk. So far he mostly repeats sounds and voice pitches:) He does say "Lilah" but it sounds more like "ila". He absolutely LOVES the outdoors and just cries at the front door, kinda like a sad puppy. For shoes he says "shhhh". He also loves to pick berries and since we are surrounded by blueberries and blackberries he's picking all the time. Unfortunately he doesn't know how to pick the ripe ones yet.
In spring Aaron and his mom planted a vegetable garden and I am reaping the benefits now! I love going out there and picking what I want to have with my dinner. So far I've used lettuce, carrots, beets, beans, peas, potatoes, tomatoes (which are just starting:) We also planted an herb garden and from that I've used cilantro, basil, thyme, chives, rosemary, spinach, and sage. I just love it! Can't wait for corn on the cob and more tomatoes than I know what to do with!
Lilah starts preschool in Sept and she is beyond excited! I am too actually. I couldn't put her in last year because my vehicle wasn't available for me on those days so she is very ready now for some structured school time:) I am afraid she might need an interpreter though because I sometimes can't even understand her! Her r's and st's sounds aren't so good but I know she'll grow out of it eventually! Anyway I guess thats all for now! Just want to enjoy the rest of my summer. And in fall 2 new babies will be added to the family and I can't wait! Its been a while since I got to hold a newborn and I need to get my baby fix on;)
