Motherhood = going crazy one day at a time!

Look at that face!

This is what I found when trying to get all the kids loaded into the car. Now take a step back and just think that I usually load in the babies first. Then I lift Myles up and he can press the garage door button on the wall. We used to let him use the opener in the car, but we had a problem with that so now he is only allowed to push the button on the wall. Okay, now go back to the picture. He took my keys, opened up the car, got in the car from his door, crawled into the front to push the button and open the garage door. Got back into the back seat, up into his seat and snapped his top buckle. He was sitting there just a happy as could be. He couldn't have been more proud of himself. All this was going on while I was upstairs getting the babies ready to go. Now let me just say that the keys are now placed out of reach because, the fact that the garage door was up and he could have be who knows where is a little frightening for me. Not to mention that the dog would be out too, as he loves to run out every time Myles opens the door. Can you say that Myles is just too big for his own britches. His height allows him to get into and out of many things that a normal 2 year old would never be able to reach.

Audrey and Lydia got these cute shirts from their Grandma and Grandpa Dodd. We had to get pictures in them right away because they are almost too small.
Two going on twenty. Myles loves to drive the car and he's always careful to put his seat belt on.
Myles finally is interested in his sisters. He asks to hold them all the time. It's usually not that successful, but it's important that he cares about them at all.
BUSTED! Myles was in his room taking a nap, or was he. I came into the room because I heard a big crash, it was the toys all hitting the ground. Well we've come a long way because now he doesn't nap at all. We don't even pretend to nap. It just doesn't happen. It was a very sad day for me. Now we just have "quiet" time. I don't care what he does as long as he does it in his room!

On another note, we are all doing well. The kids are all healthy now and everyone seems to be loving the extra space at the new house. The kids are growing like weeds and we continue to work on getting the house put together. Weekends come and go TOO fast. We never seem to get enough done.
