Growing SO fast!!

Well I really should not be that surprised, but Teagan is now standing on his own. I knew this would come eventually just one more step closer to walking. I must admit I usually make him sit back down I am not quite ready to have him walking. He gets in enough trouble crawling around which he started at about 6 months. He never was a baby to just sit in one spot and play contently. He is such a cute little stinker though LOL
Then there is my sweet little Olivia,
After months of begging to go to school, the day finally arrived, Olivia went to preschool. I cannot believe she is old enough to go. Where has the time gone. Anyway enough of my sentimental mommy feelings (I really could go on and on) Olivia LOVES preschool and her teacher. She does not quite understand why she cannot go every day so we finally had to get a calendar so she can cross off days and know which days are preschool. She is making new friends and was so excited to see that her friend Paige who had moved from our ward is in her class and as of right now as Olivia puts it "My very best friend" kids are soo cute!!
So life goes on my kids are growing up which makes life a little more crazy and hectic!
Oh ya and did I mention Teagans hair is going curly.....SO EXCITED!!

Fish Anyone?

The other day we were out at my moms, she was preparing some fish my dad had caught. Olivia was watching and I could tell she was in deep thought.

Olivia: Grandma what are you doing?
My mom: Making fish for dinner, I am putting seasoning on so it will taste good when we eat it
Olivia:(long pause)Childs of God don't eat fish

Why can't I stay up on my blog?

LAME!! I set up a blog mostly because I really hate writing in journals I am awful at it, typing is so much easier. So I wanted to keep a record of my life and all the funny and crazy things my kids do and yet I have missed so much the last couple of months things I swore I would never forget and saddly I did :( So here goes fresh start, and trying to remember some stuff.
Teagan is now 7 1/2 months and is extremely mobile, what am I saying that kid has been getting himself around a room since 4 months he would literally roll himself to get to things then that merged into the inch worm butt up then down it was sooo funny to watch then came the army crawl then he figured out how to sit up and by 6 months he was crawling and pulling himself up to furniture and FALLING!! Poor kid always had a bruise somewhere because once he was up he had no idea how to get down. He has now mastered the sitting straight down part but now Teagan is starting to test out the "letting go see how long I last standing" so I guess we have a few more bruises down the road. I just can't believe that he is almost 8 months he is just so grown up. He is also the sweetest little guy and he abslolutly adores Olivia he just follows her all around the house. If he can't find her he sits on his bottom and whines until she reappears and then all is well and he crawls after her it is so cute. The other day she was sitting in her litttle rocking chair and he crawled over and stood by her and then I hear Olivia say "No Teagan I am not your binki" I looked over and he was sucking on her arm laughing it was so funny she would push him off and he would laugh and start doing it again this continued with him finding this hilarious and Olivia not so amused until I saved her and distracted him with toys. I love that he is starting to get playful he now knows the little games we play and will try and start them. The other night I was staying at my Grandma's it was like one in the morning and Teagan was not tired I was exhausted. I was sleeping on a air mattress and had Teagan a little bed made up on the floor next to me. Well we play this game where I put his binki in my mouth backwards and then he will try and get it (I am sure all you moms are familair with this game) anyway on this particular night Teagan decided he wanted to play so he kept crawling on me laughing trying to put his binki in my mouth. The more I resisted and tried not to laugh the funnier he thought it was. I ended up laughing which did not help my cause to get him to sleep but he is so stinkin cute it was worth the hour or so of missed sleep.
Now Olivia my sweet little princess who is going through her "I am the princess do what I say or I will have you beheaded" phase will be turning 4 in just over a month. I can't believe it's been that long since I held her in my arms for the 1st time so tiny and helpless and now she hardly needs me for anything. She is very independant but also very loving and she does still need her daily dose of kisses and hugs which I am grateful for. She is such a good big sister she loves Teagan and wants him everywhere she is. If he is not keeping up fast enough she scoops him up and drags him where she wants him which is usually a fort she has made. She is so creative she constantly has me laughing at the random stories she makes up and the things she says. The other day she was "reading" one of her Olivia the pig books and she looks up at me, furrows her brow and very seriously points at the little boy pig and says "Mom is that my brother when I was a pig" awww the things that go through those little brains I love it. She is always saying the funniest things and I am always so sure I will never forget but I do and I did and I am so sad about it. So I really need to get my butt back in blogging gear and write all that down. *sigh* I just love my little stinkers.
