|2 years gone by|
|2 years old|
|Feels just like yesterday...our 1st born|
|My baby is growing up|
|Such a big boy|
So moving on to my littlest 2. And yes, I do mean 'little' literally. We are saving a bundle on clothes that's forsure! Believe it or not just a few weeks back I grabbed a 6-9 mth skirt to put on Dylan, only to have it promptly fall to her knees. Grabbing the next one in the pile that seemed to match I put it on and it fit perfect. Only to then look at the tag that seriously said, NB (new born). Yes, my little girl is still so tiny. Everything about her is small except her lungs. Everyone knows when the Wile family enters The Disney Store as Dylan squeals with delight running from Minnie, to Princess's ("cess cess" as she likes to say) to Jake the pirate. She knows them all and makes sure everyone else does too.

|Do you mind if I take this call?|

|Yeh! For me???|
|No that's not a wig!|
|Love my sweet boy|
|I LOVE the camera!|
They all keep us on our toes. One child is nothing when you add twins to the mix. I swear Blaze was a total poster child for having babies. Perfect in every way it seemed. Don't get me wrong all 3 of my kiddo's are absolutely perfect (insert biased Mommy smirk). But two 2 year old's is a handful and then some. They love to climb and get into just about everything they shouldn't. I can't turn my back for a second to find them both standing on the kitchen table. Darn they're fast, or maybe I'm just getting slow in my old age. They certainly keep us young and on our toes. We have to catch ourselves from mumbling, "Geee Blaze never did that!" They even surprise him sometimes with their antics. To which he will reply with a chuckle, "Oh they are so ridiculous!" The 'terrible two's came on like a storm, starting just shy of their 2nd birthday! Tantrums, stubbornness and the occasional swat and hair pull are all double the pleasure and of course big brother likes to not always feel left out and joins the party, just to put Mommy over the edge. :)
|Caught in the act!|
|Tell me again why we have 2 toddler beds?|
|Visiting Daddy at Work.|
Other then me being in denial that my kiddos are all growing up and keeping us VERY busy we have had a pretty busy year thus far...I have/had a horribly painful and somewhat debilitating impinging herniated lumbar disc for about 2 months (not fun with 3 toddlers AND 12 hour RN shifts ). Gerry continues to be busy between work at the Fire Dept. and military reserve duties. Blaze is counting the sleeps till Papa and Grandma come for the winter. We spent most of our savings on a new AC unit (thank you hot, hot, hot Arizona!) A June outdoor family photo shoot in 105 degree heat Neyla (the furkid) and all.
A very unexpected and deeply emotional trip home to Canada for me, to attend my beautiful sister-in-law's funeral who very suddenly passed away with an extremely aggressive form of cancer.
