Happy 11 Months Ali!

Ali is 11 months old today!

She is walking, or at least taking a good 6 steps on her own. She can say "hiiiiiiii!!!!" "pup" "mama" "dada" "leelee (lily)" a few more that I can't think of on the top of my head.

She is growing so fast and getting such a beautiful personality. I love her very much!

I have a hard time believing that she was this little only 11 months ago.
Beautiful blue eyes

"Look! I can stand alone!"

She was yelling at her brothers and cousins, who were swimming in the kiddie pool.

Sorry about that...

I am very sorry my blog has taken a back burner lately. I am very busy with the end of school for Landon, packing (we move in 3 weeks!), taking care of my mom, and the main reason, my phone is broken, and that is how I blog 99% of the time. I should be getting it back up and running Wednesday.

Well, last Tuesday, Landon graduated Kindergarten. How big he is! The class was so very cute singing and dancing and praising God. Then his teacher read their favorite book of the year. "I'll Love You Forever" It took all I had to not bawl like a baby when the class recited "I'll love you forever, I'll like you for always, as long as I'm living my baby, you'll be." If you have ever read that book, you know at the end, the tables turn and the child is holding his mother as well as a his new baby. I am in that place right now. I believe I learned in school it is the "sandwich generation" you take care of your parents and your own family. Typically, this happens to 35-45, not 25. Ah, well, the joys of your mother having you later and you having your own kids early.

Here are a few pictures of him on his big night.
