Is he really 2?

Ok,so how many times can a mother hear those words?
In the past 2 weeks, I have heard them more than ever. I promise, not a location goes by that I don't hear that comment. No, I don't really get that tired of it. People are friendly and usually ask about how tall his dad is. It brings on conversation with complete strangers. It's just funny. There's never a place that it isn't said.

Last week when putting on Tuck's socks, I noticed he had sores on the top of his foot. That could only mean one thing with him. His shoes are too small and he hasn't said a thing. So, we went to payless to try on shoes. They don't sell 1/2 sizes anymore apparently. Not one shoe we tried on had a 1/2 size. The 11s were way too small, so Tuck's in a size 12 shoe!!! Bethy who is 5 years old, is in a 12 1/2. Apparently, girl shoes still come in 1/2 sizes.

starting young

While in the kitchen on Sunday am, getting ready to go to church, Tucker asked for some coffee. As if it was the most normal question for a 2 year old to ask when entering the kitchen. So, I poured him a very small amount in a mug with some creamer. I didn't think he would drink it. He looks like a pro. And actually, he drank the whole thing!! What can I say? Hot drinks are the best!!!

Our Wonder Woman

Our Bethy. On Friday she was watching our neighbor ride his 2 wheeler bike. She has been watching her sister for 2 months ride a bike without training wheels. So yesturday she asked Mike,"Daddy, can you take my training wheels off my bike?" Mike removed the wheels. Immediately Bethy hopped on her bike and started riding. It was amazing. All she did was watch others and then successfully rode a bike!!! It took me weeks to learn how at age 7. Our little Chickie is 5 years old. This is just the beginning of what our little Bethy can and will do. I love her spirit. Can't wait to see how she handles different challenges in life.
This is my very first blog. I decided to start this enormous deal because there are so many things going on in my life I want to talk about. I feel as though this is the best place for me to write my thoughts, stories and testimonies. It will be recorded for me and to share with others if they are at all interested.

It will be fun to family and friends to see the latest pics and stories of our lives. And with that, here it goes!
