So Incredibly Behind!!!

I'm sorry I haven't posted in SO long . . . something is up with Mozilla and it won't let me add new posts. At first I thought it was a problem with Blogger, but then I realized my friends were still updating their blogs, so I tried using IE instead. So consider this the "catch up" post, and I will try to do better!!

We've had a REALLY busy month. Lots of playdates, Summer turned 9 months, I did my first Triathlon, we went to Missouri, and the dogs saw the vet . . .

Garrett being "Froggie Boy"

Updates on the kids: Garrett = such a big boy! He had a blast in Missouri with his granparents and Aunt Stephi. His favorite part was the old cars Grandpa is restoring--the finished Firebird and the work-in-progress '67 Camero. He did great on the trip--much better than I was expecting. He's sleeping a little better since we came home. He talks non-stop, and has something to say about everything. He loves his sister and his doggies a ton. Swimming lessons are going well--he is finally jumping in to the pool with no floaties and loving it (Horray!)

9 months and petite as can be!

Summer is getting more and more mobile. She still isn't crawling full-scale--she is very efficient at commando crawling and manages to get where she is going no-problem. She really likes walking now, but you have to hold her hands. Its a little bit of a pain because she will just lean over while you are holding her so you will put her on the floor and let her walk. She says "Mama", "Dada" and "Nana." She's a very happy girl--did great on the trip to MO. She's still so tiny though, weighing in at 12lbs. I'm not worried about it, because Garrett was a shrimp too until a year.

I did my first triathlon on Father's Day-- 1/4 mile swim, 10 mile bike, 5K run. It went really well--I finished in 1:40:58. It could have been better-the run was brutal after a decent swim and bike. I'm hoping to do another one in August.

We took the dogs to the vet last week and the vet heard a pretty distinct heart murmur on Aspen. We're on the hunt for a cardiologist for him, so we can figure out what's going on there. Its worrysome because no one heard anything before, and now its very noticable. Praying its nothing major--not sure what we would do without a big sweet spoiled grey boy. Haylee got a clean bill of health, and is as rotten as ever.
Thats what is going on in our world. More to come!
