Update!

Wow, have about a million and a half things happened lately. Madden's walking like a champ. He said, "See ya," and "Ba-bye" to me yesterday. London's absolutely hilarious. She says and asks the funniest things. Half of the time I'm in shock and the other half I'm laughing at the maturity and comicality of her statements. I'll get to her specific comments later on...I guess our time lately has been spent walking, swimming at Mimi's, and going to the park. Madden's actually pretty good in floaties and keeps his head up by himself! He loves the pool, as does London. They're my little fishies. I miss Cherry Hill already...sigh....Oh well, next summer I guess. We've been able to babysit Gabe a couple times. It was pretty funny because London was bossing these boys around. At one point I heard her say, "Here Gabe!....Brought to you by....DISNEYLAND!!!" I'm pretty sure the commercial said, "Brought to you by Disney," But, that doesn't matter to her! I went down there and this was the mess I found with the kids playing in the baker's rack. I'm pretty grateful at how much love cousins and siblings have for each other in my family. Unfortunately, Madden and Gabe have had a cold and I was wiping noses like it was going out of style! Madden has taken to climbing and opening everything. He's quite fond of climbing on our glass, round coffee table and crawling around it in circles. Madden also stands up in his high chair and throws his tray. aye, aye, aye! Last Sunday, prior to General Conference, we went on a walk to the elementary school so London and Madden could go down the slides. Madden ate the bark, or course, and basically lounged down the slides on his back. What a character. Okay, now for the funny musings of London whilst looking at the park pics: The other day I lost my phone. I looked for three hours straight! Finally, I asked London, "Louie, do you know where Mommy's phone is? I can't find it anywhere." "Sure, I do. Follow me." She said. I was kind of shocked but, followed her to the basement where she picked up her purse. She flung it on her shoulder, paused, then pulled out my phone (My actual phone) and said, "Hello? Oh yes, she's right here." She handed out the phone to me and said, "It's for you." I was kind of ticked but, amused at the same time. Another funny moment would have to be moments while I'm driving. Some lady cut us off and I yelled, "You stupid lady!" London promptly said, "Mom, we don't say stupid." I agreed with her and apologized. She then asked why I said that lady was stupid. I said, "Because she's an idiot, London, and she doesn't know how to drive." London asked, "What's id-it?" I answered, "An idiot is someone whose not as smart as your mother." She said, "Yep, she is an id-it." When Madden is happy, London says he's being "Smilish." She told Tyler the other night that he was tacky. (No idea where she comes up with some things.) London asks me frequently what words are good or bad. Tyler and I were talking about something and London said, "Mom and Dad....we don't say boobs." Ty and I tried not to burst out laughing so we just agreed and looked straight forward with smiles on our faces. I seriously can't quit laughing sometimes. London has become a cook, a baker, and a decorator. She tells me exactly how to make her lunch, bake cookies, and the other day instructed me on our to decorate our porch. She's just growing way too fast! I'll definitely try to write these things down as soon as they happen because I just forget everything! Until next time! video video

London so reminds me of what I have to look forward to with Lily. She's done similar things with my phone. Cute kids!

I enjoyed reading your update to your family. I loved where London had put your phone. IN her purse: Of course! Why did you not think to look there! So funny! Your kids are cute and you and Tyler are good parents.

Reading this post was my reward for finishing some lesson plans. I miss your sweet kiddos! And you and Ty, of course!

Only a year ago, we were going to sushi with Tys while he visited! See you around Christmas.
