Random Thoughts

Forgive me while I try to figure out what is going on with blogger.  I have not updated since September, so I have no idea what is going on in here.  If my post looks strange, sounds strange, or is strange . . . . I blame blogger.  Ha! It's really going to be a random post of little things that make me laugh, smile, or scream.

To sum up, everyone is growing and changing all the time except us parents.  I'd like to say that we are growing and changing, too, though - just in different ways.

Oh, and we moved in January.

I can't believe Soren will be a freshman in high school in the fall.  I suppose he will be considered a freshman much sooner than that. . . . you know, like in 6 weeks (!!!!) when school is out for the summer.  It's hard to take sometimes, but other times I look at him and am so impressed with the amazing young man that he is.  Other times I want to strangle him because he's a teenager.  Ya know?  Sigh.  I enjoy the moments we get to spend together, but he's so busy that they are few and far between.  I know it only gets worse from here!

Caroline is .... Caroline.  Yesterday she seriously did a flying ninja kick to Henry's head.  I could not believe it.  And yet, I could.  Those two are crazy.  They love each other to bits, but boy do they enjoy tormenting each other.  Classic!  And Soren is in on the trouble, too.  The other day while we were eating dinner and Caroline was being a stinker, he looked at us and said, "Why is she so annoying??"  HAHAHA!  We both laughed.

I downloaded a goofy app to IPad the other day with all of these voice clips from My Little Pony (Caroline's favorite show in the whole wide world.... right now).  I was showing it to Alan after 10pm and suddenly I hear Caroline on the monitor in our bedroom.  I go in to tell her to go back to sleep and she looks at me and says, "Mommy, I heard ponies!!!"  I had to stop myself from laughing and put her back to bed.  I played maybe 2 or 3 clips for Alan, totaling less than 30 seconds, and she woke up.  "Mommy, I heard Pinkie Pie!"  Oh, boy!  She has quite the ear for the things she loves.

Henry is talking in sentences.  I can't understand them, but he sure knows what he's saying.  Sometimes I catch bits and pieces.  Yesterday we were at a friend's house (Jasmine is her name and she's kind of amazing), and as we were leaving he fully said goodbye to her and I believe followed it with see you later or I'm going home or something like that.  I have never met a toddler who talks as much as he does.  Holy COW the kid does not shut up!!!

And that's the time I have.  There is so much more to say, but this is a start in updating.  At least I hope.

Hey, an update is an update! I'll take it! I am totally blown away by Soren being a Freshman, too. Isn't he like 8? Did he skip a few years in school or something?
And Henry talking... are you sure it's not Caroline who's just talking?

Hey--he and Darcy could probably have a nice conversation. Sounds about like her :)

Oh, and don't you remember Ethan as a toddler? He was quite a little chatterbox too.
