I lay in bed at night and reflect on my day. All the good things and unfortunately the bad too. The worst part is that I very rarely write these things down. My blog has always been a place I can go to remember. Sometimes I come here to take a trip down memory lane and pretend for just a minute that time is standing still. My kids are growing way too fast and before I know it I am going to forget all the cute things they did when they were little. So here it is..a little catch up on each of us!
Braxton is now four and I must say four is a fun age. It feels like he is finally starting to get it. He is so smart and I am finding that he can be so fun to be around. Lately he has been contributing to what I guess I would call conversations that I have with myself. The other day while stopped at a railroad crossing (the train was completely stopped) I said aloud, "how can they just shut down at a crossroad?" Brax replied, "I think the conductor must have got out of the train." ...It caught me off guard but I suppose he may have been right. haha. He also understands that there are consequences to your actions and is getting better at trying to do the good things and apologizing, mostly to brother when he doesn't get it right. Braxton has always blown me away with how smart he is. He is loving preschool and teacher Lynda says he does great!! He is into anything completely boy and somewhat obsesses about them. Thanks to a trait mom gave to him. I can not imagine life with out him; those yummy checks and big brown eyes.
Tayven now almost two and a half keeps us laughing all the time. He is my more easy going child and keeps a smile as part of his regular dress. He also is a little more daring and seems to get into a little more trouble..latest, climbing up his dresser to feed the fish and tipping the whole thing over, barely escaping so that he could call mom to the rescue. Mom saved the fishy. I hope to get a little more video of him this year. He just says the funniest things that I am afraid words might not be enough to explain. Tayven is also my little eater, you can not tell to look at him but he has a bottomless pit for a stomach and is always hungry.While I was in the tub the other day he kept coming in with a mouth full of what looked like chocolate...also new trick: moving the chairs to get donuts off the counter. When I got out I found a box of donuts practically gone with a coke to drink. I am learning quickly that I get more out of him when there is food involved. . . I Love it!!
