wow... I am horrible at keeping up with this blog. I blame Instgram... really. I get so much more instant satisfaction from there. I can post immediately, and I know that people are seeing it. 

And since I got a new phone for my birthday, I no longer need to constantly put my pictures on my lap top. Which means I have no pictures from the last month on my computer.... they are happily stored in my new phone that has tons of storage. So these pictures in this post are not super recent. But who's gonna complain- at least I'm doing a post, right? ;)

VEDA IS HARD. She is seriously at a very trying stage right now. She is an absolute doll and can be the sweetest little human on the planet. But .... she is two. And SO much more spunky than my other kids were. She likes to and tries to push buttons. She is really good at making stink faces and will growl or bite at you for no reason. It's awesome. So just trying to deal with her hard phase and teach her the best we all can. And a lot of the time trying not to laugh when discipling her because even when she's naughty she is just so dang cute. 
 Have you tried these? (from Costco) I could eat a whole bag by myself. They are delicious. Almost as good as candy. (almost)
 I did a mini class at church a few weeks ago (at Enrichment... or whatever they call it now). It was on decorating on a dime. ha... like I'm some sort of expert or something?! I'm not!! But it was good for me. I hate doing things like that. Plus I got to hang out with and be twins with Alanna (no-- we didn't plan our outfits. But next time I think we will)
You know that saying "When it rains it pours?" Well.. I feel like it's raining in my life. Life is stressful. Hard kids, sick kids, appliances breaking, and just some other hard 'life' things happening. I'm sure things will slow down and become normal again... maybe I'll be more inspired to blog more often :)
Until then, a few more pictures of Veda.

I'm so glad you did a blog post. i was beginning to worry that you had given it up. And how can you say all those things about my perfect little angel granddaughter? She's the cutest little thing!

Shawn AND Chelsey said...

don't give up on your blog! (ha! i'm totally the kettle here since i gave up on ours forever ago!!). but i really love reading your posts! i'm sorry it's raining in your life right now! ours too! our sunday school lesson last week was how god is the keeper of the last hour. basically, he lets us have our trials and then helps us at the very, very end. i gotta say, i felt like our last hour should've been 2 months ago! ha! so i can totally sympathize! but, keep your chin up and have faith. i know it will all work out! xo

p.s. cute pics! and i'm not on instragram, so if nothing else, keep blogging for me :)

Amber said...

I'm sorry you are going through stuff too. Life can be hard :)
I miss you!!! I'm sure I won't give up the blog completely. And if I ever think about it-- I'll remember what you said :)

Don't stop blogging! I like reading the lengthier descriptions. And it always makes me feel better when I know other people have challenges too.

Ok Am. You have a very serious problem on your hands. Veda is just way too stinking cute for any kind of real parenting to be able to happen. I mean, seriously, how can you ever discipline such an adorable face? That pic with the stink face over the grapes and the one with her standing by the manikin are just killing me!!!!
