Let's just face it, until we have established regular naps, as well as having my Ukrainian back, this blogging business is just going to be a catch up game. I am deciding right this instant to stop feeling guilty about my lack of documenting our fun eventful life, after all, the fact that there is fun events to remember is already plenty in life.
Nicky has asked me to play soccer for quite a few years. The problem has always been two things on my part: laziness for one and forgetfulness for the other. I was too lazy to have him go to practice and games, and I forgot to register him on time year after year. I realize how much sports take out of the parents, my poor mom and dad, sitting in the rain, watching me play basket-ball, with the high winning scores of 4 to 6, on a fretful early Saturday morning! At least we live in sunny AZ, where the grass is yellow in the winter and they paint the soccer lines in green, while the rest of world's green grass and yellow lines are covered in snow.
Ah the Gilbert Temple Open House!!! What hasn't been said about that gorgeous new temple of ours? My boys loved the "diamond" chandelier the best. We toured it a couple of times. I realized that if Alex isn't back for the Phoenix Temple open house (supposed to be in the fall), I won't have my whole family inside a temple for many many many years!!!
Then there was this monkey, a monkey with a banana baba, some say his eyes are creepy, but that's because they haven't looked deep into the Sam's Club Banana Baba Monkey man, he is full of soft love I tell you, and he needed a home. We adopted him, he is happily living on the floor of Mr. Liam's room.
We like to exercise, it makes for strong bones and keeps your legs sexy.
We haven't figured out how to do the manly push ups quite yet, baby steps, baby steps...
So yes, I like stripes a lot, on me, on him, on anyone that let's me buy clothes for them. I do no plan my outfit to match his, but it just happens sometimes and we look like a perfect pair!
He hates food, the baby, not Reed. He only like mommy's nam-nams (Reed likes them too), but we're trying. He makes the face of someone that has tasted poop, and a nasty smelly poop ...okay that would imply that some poops don't smell and that I have tasted some, I haven't, I promise, but I know what face I would make if I had!
We made our first trip to Grandma's house and Liam had a bonding moment with his fave Uncle Mark (he only has one Uncle Mark, so I can say that he's his fave Mark Uncle with no fear from the other many uncles - who don't read my blog anyway)
This awesome lady had a very milestonish birthday on March 3rd. She is my best friend and confidant, she forged me and prepared me to become the person I am today. She is a great example and I love her more with every year: ma maman.

And it is my job to do the same as my mom has, prepare my children to be the best they can.
