My Little Stud

I haven't posted anything for awhile and I tried to think of a quick way to play catch up. The past few months have flown by for us. Our kids are growing more and more every day. They are so much fun!

Owen is learning all kinds of things. He loves to talk about everything these days. I don't think that being two is terrible. Owen is such a cute boy. He is so good to help me with cleaning and laundry. I really hope he won't grow out of the cleaning phase. It's nice to have some helping hands.
Kaebrie (otherwise known as Sissy) is getting so big. She is already 18 1/2 lbs. Owen didn't weigh that until he was about 18 months old. Goes to show just how different my kids are. Kaebrie started crawling when she was 9 months old. Now she is starting to walk along all the furniture. She has a very distinct way of crawling. She tucks and drags her right leg under her body and lifts her left leg out front to do all the work. She is so fun and has quite the personality. Drum roll please---SHE TAKES A BOTTLE---My mom got her to take a bottle about a month ago and absolutely loves it! I'm really thankful for the break from nursing. I finally have my body completely back.
Jeff and I are keeping busy with our jobs. It really never stops with this busy lifestyle of ours. At night we just collapse from our endeavors. I'm really struggling with a decision about my business. I have a year and a half left until our lease is up. I'm not sure if I should keep it going or be done with it. I sacrifice so much to make this store work. I've put so many hours into it and in return I loose time spent with the people I love most. I guess time will tell what I should do.
This summer flew by and I am shocked how close we are to the holidays! I can't believe it...
Thanks to all who have helped me with my kids. Especially my mom! She is an amazing grandma (Bon Bon) and mother. Words truly can't express my gratitude for the love and kindness that has been shown to myself and my children. Not a minute goes by that I don't think about every blessing in my life. If I fall, someone is always there to pick me up and help me know that everything is going to be OK. Jeff has been a huge support as well. He said it best when he told me "It's 90% attitude and 10% situation". How true is that? I feel like I don't deserve to have such a great life.
Just thought I would post some cute photos of Owen. Little Angels Photography does amazing work. She hasn't retouched any of the images yet so I may post more in the future.
Well, I'll stop rambling now!
