Mischievous Maggie

I can't believe how much trouble Maggie can get into in one day! She looks so sweet and innocent but behind that smile we have a mischievous daughter that is into everything!

Kyler is growing up so fast! I can't believe he is 5 years old. I work graveyards and I usually try to sneak a nap in when Maggie is asleep. I told Kyler to wake me up if he needed to go potty or if he needed something else. I woke up to him yelling, "Tara! Tara! Come here quick!" I ran into the hallway and he pointed at the toilet. He went potty all by himself! One of us usually has to help him get his underwear down because of his stiff muscles and then hold him up the the toilet. But sure enough was the evidence on the toilet just like all little boys and men pee! I was so proud of him!

He is also such a great big brother! He shares everything he can with his little sister!

I was a little worried putting Maggie to sleep without the bottle for the first time. I thought it was going to be absolutely horrible! As you can see she had no problems!

She is also developing quite the personality and is getting into everything! She enjoys hiding things from us. We found Kirk's cell phone in her toy box, and we found the home phone in the closet she is playing in. She also got all the soap out and was walking around with it! The biggest thing is her shoe fettish! She take off with all of our shoes!

Maggie being cute!

Summer Fun

We enjoyed going to Blacktail with Kirk's family last Saturday. Kyler thought the boat was awesome and had a good time sitting in the front with Grandma Madge. They kept splashing each other and Kyler was begging Uncle Duane to hit more waves! Duane and Lanett brought a tube and Kirk and I had a lot of fun on it. It has been a long time since I have done that and I was very sore the next day! I could barely move my arms. Duane kept getting close to big waves and I knew his plan was to flip us. Every time he got close I told Kirk I was going to let go because I didn't want to flip! I guess I'm not as adventurous as I use to be! We had a great time and look forward to doing it again!
