Oh where to begin? There has been so much going on in the past month or so. Toby, Paige, Haley & I all got a little older.
 Toby and Paige's birthdays fall on the same day however we celebrated them both on different days this year. Sort of giving Toby back his birthday.

I have trained my kids to tell anyone that asks that (depending on the child) I am anywhere between 21 and 25 years old. Gotta love their innocence lol!
 Haley turned 17, SEVENTEEN! How did she grow up and get so old before my eyes?
I got a little smarter, I finally became a college graduate. There were times when I didn't think I would make it. At one point I was pregnant, working full time, helping Toby with his business taxes and paper work part time, and tending to a very sick toddler who was hospitalized, all while taking between 3 and 5 classes. I very nearly quit and am so glad I didn't. 

Jonas turned 8 months old, and is starting to hit all of those lovely milestones most babies his age have already mastered. With his adjusted age he is right on track but since he is so big and is often larger than most babies his actual age it is hard for others to comprehend why he isn't, or rather wasn't doing normal stuff. I am happy to say that he now is rolling and scooting all over the place and starting to enjoy finding and getting into things that he should not be playing with. Although he is not crawling yet, he is getting up on all fours and trying. And, just two days ago he surprised us all be pulling up into a standing position out of no where. I often sit and look at him in wonderment as at 23lbs and 30in he looks more like a toddler than an infant.
 Loryn played the last of her 14 games of volleyball. She did so well, I am very proud of all that she achieved. This was her first year playing and she not only learned the sport but did well enough to be put on the B team (her school has an A, B & C team).

There was so much more that went on but will add those events in on another post. Such a fun and crazy life and I am loving every minute of it!
