Every day I realize that I have so much to be happy for. With three incredible children, I don't know how it could get any better.
Swae is turning into such a beautiful, smart, talented, caring young lady. She excels in everything that she does, especially school. She is one of the top readers in her class. In fact, she loves to read. Just last night she read for her homework and then proceeded to bring down a handful of books and read most of the night. She is a wonderful speller as well. It actually completely boggles my mind the things that she is able to spell on her own. And she actually loves to do math and is good at it. She also works with Seth on addition - super cute to listen to! She is honestly the best big sister that Seth and Skylar could ever ask for. She never gets frustrated with either one of them. She will put both of their needs before her own. She is always looking out for them, playing with them, and doing anything and everything to help me with them. I am so incredibly proud of her. I love snuggling with her, doing her hair, painting her nails and toes, playing, laughing...absolutely everything. Swae is a beautiful girl and so very special. She has the biggest heart of anyone I have ever known.
The man of the house is getting awfully big himself. Seth is growing like a weed. I look at him and am so often blown away with how tall he is getting, how he continues to look more and more like his dad. He is still obsessed with cars, trucks, motorcycles, jet ski's, quads...anything that he knows his dad loves. His intelligence blows my mind. The other day he was playing with his legos and he came to me all excited to show me what he made. I couldn't believe what I saw. And then he showed me the paper that he had looked at to make it. INSANE! He is definitely all boy. He loves to play rough and wrestle. Yet, he is quite the little snuggle bug. The last couple weeks, the only thing he has asked me to do is snuggle. I cherish every moment of it because you never know when he might get to the point that snuggling isn't "cool" anymore. He adores Swae and looks up to her. He wants to learn like her, do the "big kid" things that she does. It is the cutest thing to watch. He is a great big brother to Skylar as well. He might be a little rough with her at times, but he does take good care of her. He loves to play with her, wants to cuddle with her, protect her, teach her new things. Seth is such a smart little boy, such a love. He loves adventure, being outdoors and is just the greatest son we could ever ask for.
Skylar is coming up on a year. YIKES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Every day is something different, something fun. The little girl is learning like crazy. She is absolutely beautiful. She is a tiny thing. I'm pretty sure that she isn't even 19 pounds. Very petite this little girl is. When I watch her walk, I can't help but think that she is just too little, too small to be walking. Speaking of walking, Skylar walks just to be walking. She walks in circles around the living room. She will walk down the hall and back just because she can. She loves toys that she can push around. Even more so, she loves the toys with music so she can dance and shake her little booty. She is constantly babbling and trying to say more and more words. She is just so much fun. She also eats EVERYTHING. And that is no joke. She eats asparagus, artichokes, peas, carrots, broccoli, chicken, beef, pastas. We are blessed to not have a picky eater on our hands. While there are so many more things that I want to say, I will wait until her big, special day.
This my friends is why I have been so absent lately. I have been truly enjoying and soaking up every minute I can with all three of these sweet angels. I am definitely catching up though on my reading and figuring out what is going on with all of you. I have noticed though that there are a couple blogs that won't let me comment...super weird and definitely frustrating! Oh and since I am so far behind, I am not commenting on everyone. But once I get caught up, I plan on commenting much for frequently.
I hope you all have a wonderful, happy Thursday!
