How in the hell did it get to be nearly 2 months between posts?? Oh yeah, life got busy. Ok, I will try to sum things up so we can just move on.
-after the nightmare camping trip, Tristan somehow regained his weight plus some to make it over the 20lb mark by 12mo check up. Official stats are buried somewhere in the paperwork. He's 90-95% for head, 75% for length, and only 10% for weight.
-all the grandparents, one aunt, and the boys' cousin came out for Tristan's first birthday celebration and christening. It was a WONDERFUL visit that wasn't long enough - seriously.
-Tristan turned a year old.
-10 days later, Ryan turned five. (Zoiks Batman, really, already?)
-4 days later, I turned 35. (woah, now it's getting serious)
-9 days later, Hubby and I celebrated our 8th anniversary.
-we have been busy getting Ryan ready for Kindergarten and I am getting initiated into the world of BTS shopping from the parent's perspective. (Why on earth do the 'pretty' pencils cost $1.00 each? The plain wooden yellow ones work just as well for 12/$1.00, we're getting those!)
-I have been knitting a LOT lately. I will do a post soon (I promise) with pictures of some of my latest work. I am now part of an online store with some other great gals that I chat with online. Our store can be found here: Growing up Green.
-our dearest neighbors moved to Idaho and we miss them terribly.
-my dad got elected to the hall of fame for his university for basketball back in the day and we are all headed to the midwest in October to be there for the ceremony. (Go Daddy!!!! We always thought mom was making things up when she said you were the star of the team, guess we were wrong!)
-Tristan took his first steps yesterday. I will post a video of him 'walking' soon, hopefully tomorrow/later today depending on what time zone you are in.
-Ryan got the training wheels off his bike and is a natural. Video of this to come too.
-Hubby got promoted at work and I couldn't be more proud of him.
-Hubby bought me a new laptop for my birthday - yippee!! (It's pink. tee hee)
-Tristan is sick again, this time a double ear infection. But he was well from that last post to this one, so maybe I should take another leave of absence so he will stay well???? Nah.
Ok, so that about sums it up. If I forgot something, I will tell you later.
Sorry I have been such a bad blogger, I will try not to let it happen again. I will try to read at least the most recent posts from all my blogger friends too. Heather, I got your email, sorry I didn't reply, busy, as you can see above, and then it got buried in my inbox. My bad. Sorry.
