Oh, Just This and That

Well, it seems that life just keeps clipping along.  Noah looked at me the other day and said "these weeks are so FAST!!"  I don't know what it is, but it sure feels like it was Thursday two days ago and here we are again! 

  • Forrest is finishing his 4th week of school!  What?
  • It's almost September?  How is that possible

  • Quinn is talking.  We've suspected it for a while now, but the kid is talking!  Hi, Hola, Mama, Da, Bye bye (complete with hand motions) Eat (but it's not really the word eat, it's more like a monkey call) Yeah and we think he even says "what is that?"  Genius child.  We are working hard on Chao (as in bye)
  • Quinn was sick all last week, and then I got sick and then he got sick again.  It's not been a fun two weeks in that department!

  • I miss a dishwasher.
  • I am thankful for a dryer!
  • I tried the famous "blue soap" here...I think it works well as a treatment on new didn't do so great on the old one.

  • We discovered that Minga HATES being sprayed with water...I think we found our anti-barking solution!
  • I think I am going to try and rig up some sort of tent out on the deck so the boys can go "camping" for Labor Day and sleep out there.  We'll see...
  • Elliot says he can't fix my runny nose, he's only good at fixing toys.  Too bad.


  1. The weeks ARE flying! I swear Friday of last week was yesterday! :) Your list of Quinn's words reminded me that Reagan said "Wha daaat..." for "What is that?" for the longest time. Enjoy these early words - they are the best!

  2. I was thinking I can't believe September's already here either! I remember that blue soap!

  3. I agree that the time really is flying! How fun that Quinn is talking! Jethro says buh-bye, ba-ba (bath), mama, dada, mmm (moo).

  4. Love that photo of Quinn. How great that you have a dryer! When it's too rainy and my diapers don't get dry in time, we head to Kenneth's to use the dryer. Those prefolds come out feeling luxurious :) I can imagine my baby lives for rainy days.

    1. yes, a dryer is HUGE!! And that the electric is included in our rent!!


You are clever, tell me whatcha think!
