We're working on getting Levi skating this year. He's really not that interested, but living out here, especially in our town and school, the kids need to know how to skate. In skating lessons he won't go without a pusher. But put him out there with Daddy, the boys, and a hockey stick and look at this!
His 1st goal!! Go Levi!!
(this was about a month ago - he's skating even better now, making it all the way down the rink by himself!)
This past week, Josh's younger brother was in town visiting. His fiance joined him on the weekend as well. We've had a wonderful time visiting with them! The kids love Uncle Mat, and their new-almost-auntie! They had so much fun playing and being silly, building legos and dancing together!
Thanks for the awesome visit, you guys. We're sure going to miss you!
Sweet Pea was 10 months old on the 13th. She waited exactly one day more to walk! I was so hoping for another laid-back, takes-her-sweet-time, baby... but nope. Definitely not with Piper! The only thing she's taking her time with is getting teeth!
She's saying mama and dada more now, says Isaac, Zech, and tries for Levi. She obviously is standing well on her own, and starting to really test her balance, bending over to pick things up and standing back up! She goes everywhere and gets into everything, and the other day even tried to blame Isaac for making the mess she made!
2 years ago today we said "hello" and "goodbye" all too soon to our baby girl, Elliana Lucy.
Today we have pink tulips to remember her, and we'll light her candle and have cupcakes for dessert tonight.
This year, this week leading up to her birthday has been harder than last year. I don't know why, exactly.
It doesn't get easier, living without her, missing her. It changes, but it's not easier, just different.
