It is easy to let the days pass by without really stopping to take notice of all that is going on when you are a stay at home mom. One day easily blends in with the next and before you know it weeks and months have passed by without any MAJOR changes. When the kids are not sick, when we don't have any big plans, when no major milestones occur, it is easy to say that we don't have anything going on. But the truth is, that everyday with Isabelle and Molly is a day with something new, something they haven't done before, and I hope I can remember these seemingly little things as well as I remember the monumental first things like crawling and walking and vacations and teeth and all those other BIG moments.
So while nothing really huge happened this past week, my girls are doing new things, growing way to fast and keeping me busy. Isabelle is currently all about puzzles. But in true Isabelle fashion, the easy ones are of no interest and the ones that are much too hard are the ones she wants to spend all day on. We are practicing her letters and numbers everyday and she has a puzzle with the alphabet that we are still trying to master.
Cait and Josh came over this week and Isabelle was so happy to have someone to play with other than her sister Molly. They had a little dance party in my room while I was cleaning and if anyone stopped dancing, Isabelle was not happy. Let me tell you, cleaning a bathroom while dancing is not the easiest thing!
Molly is not crawling, though at this point I don't know that she will. She is a very fast scooter. Just as fast as if she was crawling, so I am not sure she sees any need to crawl. I see the early signs of her wanting to pull up on things, so that can't be far behind. She is eating more and more solid foods and right now she seems to like anything I put in front of her. I can't help but be sad because I know this is just the beginning of the end of her being my baby. Jason suggested we have another, but I am confident he was kidding!
Jason's work is pretty much the same...BUSY. No one at our house is complaining! I am so thankful that he works for a company like Alaback. My business is good. Overall, we are amazingly blessed.
And while right now things are pretty uneventful for us, the holidays are just around the corner and that brings a LOT of activity for our family. So I will try to take advantage of the slow times, the times where I feel there is nothing happening. And, I will try to remember to enjoy all of it, the slow and the jam packed schedule. The small moments and the huge moments.
