Hello all. So sorry it's been so long. This life of mine has just been a little hectic as of late, and blogging has been last on my list of to-dos. Two years ago I would never have expected to STILL be living in my parent's basement. And I promise, we've been trying to find our way out. As of today (ask me again tomorrow) we are actually going to be moving in the next few weeks to the one bedroom basement suite we own. It is just temporary, until our tenants in our condo move out, but it is time to fly the roost, even if our new roost isn't ideal. I'm dying to have a permanent abode, to decorate and call my own. Oh well, another few months and it will be so.
In the mean time, good things are happening. Just two weeks ago this little guy turned 2!!!
Oh how I love him. He's such a joy in our family. He is fearless, never hesitating to follow his older brother and cousins wherever they may go. He jumps everywhere he goes. He is talking so well, trying out new words constantly. He loves his daddy and almost every morning while eating breakfast cries, "Daddy, gone?!" In the last few weeks we have moved both boys out of our bed and into their own room, and Silas loves it. While Eli almost certainly crawls into bed with us sometime in the night, Silas usually sleeps a whole 12 hours in his big bed, only crawling in with me in the morning when he wants "mo"! That's right, he is still nursing, and when I ask him if he wants some "mo" he usually squeals with delight, "Yeah!" I love it! He loves dressing up. He has spent most of the last two weeks dressed as Buzz Lightyear (just like his big brother did at the same age.) He loves pirates and whenever he sees any pirate paraphernalia he yells "Arggg!" He is strong willed and confident, and I hope those traits will help him grow to be a righteous, obedient boy. Eli says that he loves that "Silas likes to play with me." Silas is such a blessing in our lives, and we are so grateful to have him around. Happy birthday, little man!
So that's it. Maybe I will get around to posting a few more of our September adventures. I've justified not journalling the last few years because of this blog, and recently I haven't even been blogging. I promise to get on it!
