March Update

March 31, 2010 2:09 pm

It’s been crazy around here lately…and that may be an understatement.  March started off slow. I went to Dallas for a week to visit family. The kids and I went to the zoo with Cameron and visited all of the great grandparents.

It was fun watching Miles and Lyla play on my grandmother’s adjustable bed and shag rug, just like my brother and I used to do when we were that age.

They also got to take a bubble bath in Gama’s tub.

Poor Lyla had a fever the entire time we were in Dallas, and then broke out in a rash the day after we got home. Classic roseola.

So glad to be home and see daddy

Then once we got home things kicked into overdrive with the land and house building.  We’ve been working on getting our house fixed up to put on the market. Our well is finally done being drilled and the plans for the new house are finished.  By next week we should have everything to the bank for financing!

Uncle Michael and “Stina” went to Japan for Stina’s 30th bday. They brought back some cool presents. 

Lyla liked the sword more than Miles did!

Miles is really into dinosaurs now.

He is full-on talking now.   Lyla is almost ready to take her first steps without holding onto something.  She has spoken a few words here and there “kitty” “no, no, no” “flower” “travis”.  She has also taken a liking to necklaces and purses. 

Loving her new purse!

I thought she was going to be a girly, girl but funny thing is, she doesn’t seem to enjoy wearing dresses.  Must take after her mommy.

Nana made sure to remind us to take pictures in the bluebonnets.

That’s all for now.  I’ll update when we know more on the house.
