I'm Back!

Swimming is over. It was a blast to work with the kids... it was very stressful on my family though. I was busy at an awkward time EVERY day. I missed dinner with my family and on days that I had meets I missed baths and bedtime. It was hard having a nursing baby at the time also. But, it's over now, so what happens...? I get called as the Young Women's President on Sunday, the day after my last meet. At least it wasn't during swim season. I'm really excited, nervous, scared...but I think it will be really fun and hopefully I'll be able to make a difference in the girl's lives. Feel free to leave any ideas about YW! I'll need them. I've decided that I am AMAZING at copying ideas, but I really struggle to come up with things on my own. So please leave any feedback you have about YW.

Brayden and Taylor are doing well. Brayden is a big boy and he's starting to army crawl around. It's fun to see. He LOVES Taylor. Anytime Taylor will "talk" to him or show him toys Brayden laughs so hard. It melts my heart everytime! Taylor has been really interested in the ABCs lately. he can tell you all the letters except for 6. (gotta get in my bragging moment :)) He's had some trouble sleeping lately. if anyone has any suggestions there I'll take them too. He's been going to bed around 8:30, but sits in his room and talks or sings for an hour and then he wakes up at 5:45!!! That is EARLY! He gets really crabby around 11:00, I feed him lunch adn then he'll take only an hour nap- they used to be two hours and I need EVERY minute! I don't knwo what to do. Should I cut out naps completely? He skipped a couple naps a few weeks ago, and was asleep on the couch at 5:45 that evening while I cooked dinner, then he didn't want to sleep that night. Hope ya'll are doing well. I;'m almost caught up reading all your blogs...keep them coming. I enjoy knowing how your life is going! I'll leave you with these pictures of Taylor and his friend "EL" as he calls her.
