About Time!


I know, it is about freakin' time that I updated my blog! But seriously if any of you had my children, you would understand! I love them all so much and they are so worth all the crazy days that I go through. . . People tell me to do it when my kids are napping or when they go to bed at night, but Jace doesn't nap and when there is time for just us, meaning Larry and I or Jace and I, I eat it up! Poor Jace is always put on the back burner because Connor requires so much attention. I feel so bad for him especially when all of Connor's therapists come over and bring toys and focus all thier attention on Connor. I can tell they get a little irritated with Jace, cause he just wants to be right in the middle of it. So everyday this is what I hear from Jace. "Hey mom, when connor and sissy go to sleep will you play Shrek with me or will you put Connor and sissy to bed so you can play with me and then we can watch a movie! Oh, I love that kid so much! He is turning 5 this month and will be starting school. I can't believe how quickly time flies. The picture below is one of Jace a few months ago, his cheek got real swollen and I thought that maybe it was because we had popcorn a few nights before and one of the kernals got stuck in his gums. So we just gave him some tylenol and after a few days it went away. Well a couple of weeks after that I noticed he had an absess on his tooth and took him to the dentist. The dentist said he would have to have it pulled, then not even three weeks later he got another absess just above the other one and the dentist said they couldn't save it. I was so mad, I try really hard to make sure there teeth get brushed and taken care of, and all of this was happening. I was so sad, but the dentist said he would be fine and that there was nothing you could do to prevent an absess, which made me not feel like such a crappy mom for not taking better care of his teeth. It doesn't help that both Larry and I have very sensitive teeth. Guess our kids inherited that crap!

Connor is doing a little better. He is still into everything. Every day I have to make sure that my room, the bathroom, laundry room, the pantry and the front door are locked and then I don't have too many problems with him. He still tries to get on top of the counter and throw stuff off about 3-4 times a day. I am not so much worried that he will break something or that there is more for me to clean up as I am of him falling off and hurting himself, cause he has done it a couple of times and luckily he is still ok:) He is so sweet and loving, but man I should be anorexic looking for how much he gets into! The little fart threw my cell phone in the toilet and I lost all my numbers, so if you have a chance call me or text me your number please! He will start school when he turns three and that will be good for both of us I think. I get so stressed worrying about him. It is so nice when Larry is home, I feel like I can relax a little cause he is there to help out.

I took this picture when he was trying to watch Dora in his room and he was a little irritated with me cause I kept trying to get him to look at me and say "cheese!" I was taking it with my cell phone, and couldn't get one where he didn't look part retarded.

Kendall has been crawling everywhere and pulling herself up and walking along things for a couple of months now. It is hard to believe that she will be turning 1 next month. I feel so blessed to have her in my life. If I wasn't already pregnant with her when everything with Connor started happening, she probably wouldn't be here. Heavenly Father must have known I needed her and she has been such a good baby!

I can't believe how big your kids are either. I remember you being pregnant with the first one! It does seem to fly by. Are you guys coming to SJ for all the 24th stuff or are you doing it in Snowflake this year?

Cute pictures! I can't believe how big they are. Heck I remember when you were in HS and dating Larry. You'd sit and talk to me about him at the games. :) Now look at you two! Time sure does fly.

I was so glad to hear from you. Your kids are getting so big. Time flys doesn't it. Your house looks beautiful. You know those things that your kids do that make you want to scream are the things that make you laugh and talk about years latter. We need those times to appreciate motherhood. Love you. Jen
