What’s this? A blog post?!?

I can’t believe how mediocre I am at updating the blog now. I’ve just got so much on my plate that this is low low priority. Which is quite sad, because quite frankly, I do this for family history! But eventually I’ll start updating better and better. The 3 pics below are from my phone because I’m TOO lazy to go and get the camera and download the pics on the computer! LAZY. So if they’re blurry or whatever, just ignore it.
Let’s see. I don’t even know if I should try and catch up on everything. I have things to write about since last EASTERS. Holy moly. And yes, I said Easters. Nacho Libre, anyone? :)
The baby is growing and growing so I’m getting fatter and fatter. Yippeee. Is it June 4th, yet? Seriously? This pregnancy has gone by SO fast until Jan 16. That’s when we found out what we were having…and now, I seriously think that February (which, you know the shortest month ever!!) is crawling. What the heck?! Come on people! Let’s get this thing going!  We don’t have a name yet…but we are narrowing it down. I think there are 6 or 7 on our list but truthfully, there are 2 maybe 3 that are consistently talked about. I have one specific name in mind but Wade is the one unsure. Actually, I’ve got one but there’s a close 2nd. Ahhh. Naming the baby is the hardest!  I’m still learning Tahitian dancing. It’s a lot of fun. And holy cow, I’m uncoordinated and I dance like a white person. But oh well. It’s so worth it!!! I’m also teaching piano. I’ve got 3 students, and I’m adding another one in March! So fun! They are all so talented and excited for them to learn.
Wade is still the bishop. I know, shocker. hahahaha. Does so much for our little family.
Charlotte! She is doing so WELL in school! I’m so proud of her. She is reading! Yes, she is! And not only is she reading, but her kindergarten teacher, Mrs. Roghaar, says she’s up there with the advanced group. She’s in the group D books which means the next level is called RED level which is what 1st graders are reading. And that’s our goal to get Charlotte doing before school ends in May. She LOVES school. This is also her last year at Sound Beginnings. She’s been in the preschool since it formed in 2007 and now she will graduate from there! You will be amazed at how much she says. She’ll talk your ear off. And I love that! And I just started teaching her piano. I guess technically she’s my 5th student. It’s going SLOW. And I’m purposely going slow. She’s quite young to start but she’s really eager to learn so might as well work on it. She also is taking Hula and LOOOOVES it. I know she wants to take ballet but I don't know where to find a cheap, community class just so she can enjoy it. Any Loganites  know?? :)

Here's Jack, trying on a suit coat at Walmart. Found an incredible deal online instead. But he sure looks handsome! Even with that funny face ;)

Jack! Oh Jack! He’s a crack up. :) He is still in the awful 3’s right now (which isn't as bad as it used to be), but he is such a fun boy to be around.  He’s so SWEET and KIND and trying to help. And he says the funniest things. The other day he told me the baby’s in my bones. And instead of “motorbike” or “motorcycle” it’s a noodlebike. Oh and if you’re in walmart, he’ll say “WAAAAIT a minute!!!! Hey mom, wait!! Looooook at this!!” and it’s a completely random thing. And he does it every 2 feet. It’s quite hilarious. Just not at the time. hahaha. He always tells us he loves us. All the time. And Kate is following him in his footsteps with that, even Charlotte! I love hearing the kids tell each other and to us that we love each other. I love this boy! He loves his tools, trucks and balls but he is SO into superhero stuff right now too. Batman, Spiderman are the top ones but any superhero will do. He’s in preschool, and getting closer and closer to reading. Love the reading program they have there.

Kate undressing
(This is Kate who decided to want to change her own diaper next to the bed. She was yelling help help. haha)
Kate! This girl. So beautiful and sweet and cracks me up, too. But man! This girl is Miss Destructo. She’s my only child that writes on walls. And I don’t know how she learned that. In general, ruins things. Thankfully, it’s nothing to stress over…yet! But she climbs on everything. And I mean everything. That’s new to us too. She SCREAMS. HITS. TEMPER TANTRUMS. Plays in the toilet. And it's like every day. We close the doors and try and be on top of it, but just when we let our guard down...SLOSH SLOSH SLOSH. It's SOOOOO gross!!! And we haven’t started the terrible twos. Oh heaven help me. But gives you the best kisses and cuddles. She dances and sings. Totally has rhythm.  Can't wait for her to start hula in a few years.If you say cheeeese, she’ll give you the cheesiest smile!! She sleeps like an angel! If she gets her nap in, she goes to bed at 7sh. Literally wakes up between 8:30-9:30. If she doesn’t get her nap in, she’s in bed abt 6:15-6:30 and still sleeps in that long. She will wake up once a night, but in the last week, she’s only done that once. So thankful for that blessing. And she can speak so well. Her vocabulary is amazing!! I love talking with her.
Ummmm….trying to think of other things….we are just the same ol’ same ol’ around here. So that’s a little recap. Probably too long and boring but like I said, it’s for my family history!!! ;)
