Where has the time gone?

See! I'm horrible lately! I don't know why I cannot keep this darn blog updated!!! Hmmm.... could it be I have a 2 year old and a soon-to-be mobile 9 (ALMOST 10 MONTH) old running my life!!??

Hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving. We sure did! Spike and I both had a long weekend and spent a good chunk of that time cleaning the house and spending time with the kids. We ate and ate and ate on Thanksgiving :-) But who didn't!?

I, on the other hand have been making some huge life-changing decisions... the first of which is that I just submitted my application to go back to school and pursue my Ph.D!! I'm such a nerd, but I am super excited about it. This is something I have wanted for a really long time. Work is so slow right now and I figured now is a good time to do this. I kept going back and forth because I feel like the kids need me to be home, but I know it will be difficult for me to juggle my own schooling and the kids' school activities whenever that time comes. We'll see how it goes! I just hope I get in!! I should hopefully know by the end of February since I can't take my GRE until the beginning of February anyway.

Hopefully in the next few days I will get a few minutes to post some pictures of the kids up here. I cannot believe how big they are getting!!

Lilly has 3 teeth and one about to break through.

Brock is talking more each day and constantly has me laughing at his silliness!

A big fat sorry...

I can't believe I haven't posted since October 22nd! Sorry!!! I have been having what I keep referring to a "mini mid-life crisis at 29!" A lot has been going on over here with the kids and with work stuff. I'm just trying to get a handle on my life :-(

I have lots of pictures that I need to get up here, like yesterday!

Lillian is ALMOST crawling!! She's been army crawling for a little while now, but she's finally figured out the whole getting on all 4's thing. Sometimes she rocks herself to sleep in her crib on her knees. Too cute. I was so mad at myself the other day because she was cracking me up and I literally caught her on video in the Downward Facing Dog Yoga pose!  I accidentally deleted the video in my craziness to delete a stupid one :-( Sorry!

She is now NINE MONTHS! OMG! Seriously!?? Tomorrow is her well-visit so I'll post a new picture of her with her stats! She also has her two top teeth about to break through!

Brock is just getting sooooo big! So hyper and lots of talking! Sometimes I have to ask him to stop talking and have some quite time! LOL!  I've had to develop a "third eye" so to speak... So far in the last few days I've caught Brock sharing his snacks with Lilly... things like crackers, which she isn't allowed to eat by herself yet. I forget what else he tried to give her, but at least he comes to me and tells me what she is eating. He'll say "Lilly cracker too?"

What else... oh! I started knitting some mittens for Lilly, but that was way too advanced for me! LOL! So instead I'm working on a scarf for her. I made it a little wide for her size, but that's alright... I'll get over it! Pics of that to come too!
