Kids say the funniest things…so I couldn’t help making that the start of my post for September. And my…what a month it has been and we aren’t even halfway through yet!
Eric and I have been hard at work designing our new house for our land in the Bastrop/ Smithville Area. I never realized how time consuming this could be! Thankfully we agree on 90% of what we want in our “dream home” so it has been as smooth of a process as can be expected.
Miles and Lyla continue to fill my days with joy and at times frustrate me beyond belief. It really is a blessing and a curse when your 2 year old starts talking. Now I know what he wants. But since he knows I can understand him he isn’t too happy with me when he doesn’t get what he wants.
Miles has also started ‘interacting’ with his sister more. And by ‘interacting’ I mean, taking the toys she is playing with and throwing them across the room, rolling on top of her (this is how he plays with Travis), and even getting down on the floor to talk to her when she is crying to ask “what’s wrong baby?”.
Lyla notices Miles more now too.
She laughs at him now when he’s being silly. And watches him constantly. It is going to be a ton of fun watching them grow up together.
Here’s Lyla watching her first UT football game with Daddy.
Like father, like daughter…
We even got to visit with some old friends of Eric’s, Chris and Angie. It was great seeing them.
My dad and Eve brought Miles back some rocks from New Mexico last week. I NEVER would have guessed he would like them this much.
I have to tell him the rocks need to take a nap so he will put them down when it’s time to go to bed. He even stepped in a red ant pile today and got bitten over 100 times and the first thing he did once the screaming stopped was run to play with the rocks (don’t worry – he is fine. We took him to the doctor to be sure. I’m just very thankful he isn’t allergic or we would have had a serious problem on our hands).
My mom and I had fun last weekend dressing Lyla up in my christening gown. She was adorable.
Happy 7 month birthday!!
