i lied

when i said i would be posting more, i lied! who knew painting cabinets was so much work? we are now on the home stretch of our cosmetic crusade. (Sherwin Williams isn't going to know what do when our work is done.) they'll have to rip off some other poor, unsuspecting couple who didn't realize it takes up to 4 gallons to cover the living room walls.

i'm also soaking up every last hour with the twinks since i return to work tomorrow. what a wonderful summer we've had together! i'm already looking forward to the next.

finally, i got lost in my to-do list this week & forgot to celebrate the babies 14 month birthday! here's the latest on their recent accomplishments:

14 months

* they are napping once a day now. i pushed their morning nap back to the afternoon & poof, it was magic!! they now sleep up to 3.5 hours at a stretch. even berkley, my nap fighter, is comatose during this time. i just hope this trend continues for angie when they start back with her tomorrow.

* they are saying "all done". so far their vocabulary includes: mama, daddy, ball, bye-bye, thank you (tate-too),uh-oh, all done, amen, up, cracker, & that (while pointing to objects).

* they use sign language for the words more, please, & thank you. we're currently working on the word "share". :)

* davis loves riding around on his truck. he is able to climb on by himself & directs it where he wants to go. his coordination is impressive as he continues to improve in gross motor skills. he is also enjoying walking behind his push toy.

* berkley continues to build courage with taking steps, even initiating getting from one place to the other on her own. davis laughs & laughs at this strange new mode of transportation she is exploring. how funny she must look on 2 limbs instead of 4!

* they are now sleeping until 7am. these additional 45 minutes are dreamy. no pun intended.

life with davis & berkley just gets better by the day. we are so thankful for the last 14 months, even if it is all a blur now.


  1. oh we need to chat about the far back did you push it? Jayden has dropped his afternoon nap but I"m afraid of pushing the nap too late for fear of him getting too overtired. Help! :)
