Rick has been working lots and long hours which I won't complain about because I'm grateful for the money we've been able to put into savings. We will finally be out of the dark this October and we'll see where we go from there. Maybe we'll buy a home to live in for a few years until we can build our dream home together. I don't know.
That's still a ways away and there are still a lot of "if's" and "buts".
As for now, the three little ones are keeping me busy. Penny is now crawling and keeps me on my toes constantly. She loves to find the smallest things on the floor and they go directly into her mouth. Lizzie fed her her first piece of chocolate the other day against my orders and Penny of course loved it! No pictures of that, sorry. It wasn't much to get a picture of; she was pretty clean about it-It was too good to waste, I suppose.
Penny's first word is Mama. She said it quite a long time ago but am just now reporting it. She's the first of my kids to have Mama be her first words but she truly is- Mama's girl. I can't leave the room without her crying these days-It's endearing and also a bit difficult sometimes. I think it's only because she's been teething and extremely needy.
Lincoln has too much energy, he doesn't know what to do with it. He loves sports which I happen to love too so we've been spending time working on them in the backyard-soccer, volleyball, basketball, next we'll get to football and baseball. We're tossing balls around all the time it seems but his indoor balls consist of balloons and the big lite air ones--what are they called? Anyway, he loves to jump too. Jumps everywhere and on everything-- All the time!! He's working on Not jumping on people though....I sound like I'm talking about a puppy but no, It's my crazy, energetic little boy. I LOVE him!
Lizzie wants to report her first loose toof! Yep, that's right. My baby girl has a loose tooth! I can't believe it. She is ecstatic about it and can't wait for it to fall out. She jumped up and down and flapped her arms around like she does and said with her face all scrunched up, does this mean I get to go to the dentist?! She was excited about this and I had to explain to her that she didn't go to the dentist for it but that we would help it or let it fall out on it's own and then the Tooth Fairy would exchange it. She was very excited about the Tooth Fairy!! But then she said to me, curiously, "How will I eat?!" She always has questions that follow more questions. She's too smart for her own good and is becoming quite the negotiator and debater.
Although she can be a bit off sometimes. She was freaking her brother out the other day with Zombie play and when he came to me, I said, that's silly. Of course there's no such thing as zombies-they're fake! Lizzie butted in and said, "Yea, Linc! You know what the difference between Fake and Real? Real is Unicorns and Fake is Zombies!" ...I didn't have the heart to break the news to her.
