Today we hosted our neighborhood playdate. It was raining so we all stayed inside and played with play dough and did crafts, well Ellie did crafts with Izzy. But the majority of playgroup was boys today and they weren't all that interested in our "baby" toys. So I turned on some cartoons and that's what they did? How do you get boys to play? Axl is the same way, unless he is riding something outside or in, he just doesn't know what to do with himself. Next time I think I'll have some games for the boys, like tossing a bean bag or something like that.
Still no pictures, I can't figure out how to get them off my I phone and that's all I use nowadays. I'm constantly posting pictures of our day onto instagram if you are on there find me; my username is dekellis.
I do want to catch up on my milestones and memories:
Axl is saying some two word phrases. His words are hard to make out, but he uses them repeatedly so I know what he is saying even though nobody else does. But we notice that he understands everything we say and can point out everything on the page when asked to identify parts of a story.
Stella on the other hand usually doesn't say less than 15 word paragraphs! She is an accomplished talker and says any word she hears. Most people can understand what she is saying, when she isn't rambling on and on!
Ellie cut her own hair a few weeks ago. I cried. But honestly it turned out pretty cute and she gets tons of compliments on it (probably probing to learn why I would cut my daughters hair so short). I think she learned a big big lesson on what scissors are used for, but we'll see.
I said before that Scott is working a ton, and that is because we are starting a new business...again. I dug my feet in the ground and protested all the way but life sometimes takes you in a new direction and you just have to buckle up and take the ride! Scott learned so much in our last business that he feels this time around won't be so consuming, and he thinks he finally knows when to turn off the business man and turn on the family man.... I am always preaching to him that we need to work to live not live to work! Opposites attract and that is true as far as our work ethic is concerned.
At least our new business has it's roots in fun, we are going to be promoting 5k obstacle races, called "mud runs". Have you done one? or have a friend who has? They are getting popular and I think everyone would enjoy it. You don't have to be super fit, but you can be, and they are a great activity to do with a group of friends. Here is our website. Check it out and tell me what you think.
