We're baaaaack!

Hey all! Is anyone still out there?! I had all but given up on ever posting again to this fabulous bloggy blog. Thankfully I had my mind changed the other day when Sydney and I went back through each and every post from the beginning. We had the best time looking at all the pics, and watching the videos. Sydney could have watched videos of herself all afternoon. So we are back (for now anyway)! I am going to try to do better so Joel can join in the picture viewing fun one day.
Too much to catch up on, so I'll just start with the here and now. Syd will be starting preschool next week, which I think she is excited about and Joel is going on 7 months old:) Sydney loves being a big sis. She will stop doing just about anything for a chance to hold him. It's crazy too how much Joel looks like Syd at that age. Joel has officially starting sucking the 2 middle fingers on his left hand (longhorns, which I guess his cousin Lyd taught him). Honestly I am thankful he has something to soothe himself...he is an easy baby full of smiles and laughs!
My cup runneth over!







Can you tell who is who? Syd on top and Joel on bottom...crazy huh?! More examples to come!




My little goggle girl..she loves going under! Thank you Y swim lessons! This is her practicing in the bath.

I too am glad you are back! My kids love reading the blog which sadly is their scrapbook for the time being b/c I am so behind on that. I like that when I do get back into scrapbooking I can pull up my blog to help me remember what was going on :)
