While we try to teach our children all about life, our children teach us what life is all about.

It's been a little while, so I thought I'd fill you all in on what's going on "Up North". For those that don't know, I had knee surgery a week ago. I had my mom here to help and she was a true blessing. She's back in GA and we miss her! I'm hobbling around now, without crutches, and doing pretty well. I'm very lucky that Kyle loves to read - we spend a lot of time just sitting and reading books which is easy on me. In other exciting news, Kyle has started walking! He took his time and we enjoyed him being a 'hipster', but he is now a full blown toddler. He's also in the middle of dealing with evil teeth. About a month ago, his lower gums were swollen like jawbreakers. We thought for sure he'd be getting his molars any day, but of course they're still not here. His upper molars did come in, making the tooth count jump to 9 - 6 on top and 3 on the bottom. He certainly doesn't follow the book with teeth making. We've had some fun sleepless nights these last few days, so we're hoping the 3 bottom ones hurry up and arrive soon!! In the midst of all the craziness, Kyle still amazes us - he's pretty smart and we're wondering where that came from...He has this little people zoo set with 26 animals and I can ask him for a specific animal and he hands it to me. Even the walrus, quail, and uriel (whatever that is). We're definitely in Fall mode up here. The weather is getting cold (we're missing the south!!) and the Halloween decorations are out. Kyle has found a favorite white pumpkin that he carries around. Hope you all are enjoying Fall!
I'm a stay at home mom to an amazing 1 year old. I'm also a wife of almost 7 years to my "high school sweetheart" a sister, aunt, daughter, and granddaughter. My family is the most important thing in my life - nearly every happy memory from my childhood involves them in some way. We're currenly living back up north after 3 years in TN which we loved! If you've never been, you should visit - it's beautiful down there. We're missing the warm weather and I would love to be closer to my family, but we're making the best of it up here. We have 2 mixed breed dogs, Macy and Morgan - our first babies. They are great and unique although poor Macy is dealing with some ACL issues right now : ( I love decorating and shopping (too much according to Brad) and celebrating holidays. My life right now is pretty darn good and I consider myself to be very blessed.
