Signs & Kids

Taytum has been sick with the croup the last 4 or 5 days, so we have been spending a lot of time in "mommy's bed" watching Dora (Taytum's favorite).  So I could blame her hair on that, but it actually looks like that about everytime she wakes up, even from her naps.  I'm not quite sure what she does in that bed but her hair ends up in a huge rats nest, sticking straight out.  I have to soak it with water just to tame it a little!

Finnley on the other hand has no hair and pulls headbands over her eyes, so thank goodness it's getting cool enough for beanies, which I love!  I just took her to the doctor and she is 92% in height and 75% in weight.  To be honest I thought for sure she would be off the charts in weight!  I wonder what a baby that is 100% in weight looks like, cause Finner's is CHUNKY, just the way I like babies!

Does anyone else ever get sad when they realize that their baby is now a little kid?  Cause I took this picture of Taytum today and thought she is going to be graduating high school before I know it.  Sometimes I have sad moments when I think how fast time has gone and is going.  I wish I could just put everything into slow motion so I don't miss it.  Anyways maybe I am weird, but I keep thinking, she will go to preschool when she is 4 that is in 2 years, she is going to be 2 in about 15 days, that went fast.  Then she will be in grade school, and then she will be 18 and move out.  So I guess what I am trying to say is even though I have never been so tired, sleep deprived, and busy in my life, it's going to be over soon, so enjoy everyday because you can't push rewind! 

So I have been a little busy, with the usual stuff, diapers, feeding, bathing, cleaning, but also I have opened up a side of me I was unaware of, craftiness! Well it may not be crafty for most, but for me it is.  So here are a few of the items I have been working on.

Sounds like you are keeping real busy. I thought I was sleep deprived, but when I think about you and Anne, I have no room to complain;-) I love Taytum's pink converse shoes! You thought Finnley was chunky, Cannon is 85% in weight and 95% in height.
