July has been full. We’ve been swimming, visiting with family, playing, growing, working and enjoying the summer. There is so much going on around here and I’m worried that once again the summer is slipping away. There are so many things we want to do and never enough time to do them! I feel that in the past month all of my kids have grown a tremendous amount. Not just physically but developmentally. Asa has an intense interest in Pokemon cards and for the first time ever is wanting to spend time with friends rather than being home. I know this sounds silly (to anyone with older children) but it’s strange for me to see him on the phone and having a life of his own outside of our family. Finley is branching out and discovering a little more of his own self as Asa isn’t always available to him. Atticus is still our happy little farm boy but growing rapidly. His unique personality is emerging. All of our boys are so different in many ways and I love seeing the person that is Atticus. He is not a toddler anymore and the nuances that make him special are becoming more clear with each day. Bea has started talking like crazy! In just a couple of weeks time she has gone from one and two syllable words to attempting entire phrases. It’s hilarious to watch her try to repeat things and we are all enjoying her progress! Her new favorite book is “Goodnight Moon” which she read with her Aunt Nancy over and over again. She continues to keep up with the boys and make us all laugh every day.
And one more of all of them because it is so cute!
