About Time

So I keep telling myself I will start my blog tomorrow. That I will have more time after I finish the laundry and mop the floor.....Well, if that were the case I don't think I would ever get anywhere so I guess I might as well get started.
When I was trying to think of a cute log in, all I could think of is something "sparkly". I am always telling Alexis that "Life is Better With Sparkle" since she is opposed to wearing anything that doesn't have some form of "bling" on it. Oh the life of a girl! I of course am the one at fault for it since I am always trying to find a way to decorate things. Alexis is such a girly girl and loves to get dressed up. Even to go out and ride her bike, rollerblade or practice her Heeley's. Alexis loves to dance and is in the Dynamite Express dance team at Dance Connection II. She especially loves to tap and tumble! She seems a little reserved at first, but loves to perform! She also loves her friends. All 500 of them. She never wants to leave anyone out and after the birthday party list from last year I am hoping we can shorten it a little this time!
Collin is also growing up so fast. He is such a character! He is going to be 5 next month and I can't believe he will be off to Kindergarten. He LOVES to go to preschool where he is learning so much. Ms. Stacey is wonderful with him and he loves being around all of his friends. For the boy who screamed every time I tried to take him to the gym as a baby and then screamed for the first 6 months of nursery (literally at the top of his lungs the whole time), he is so outgoing and loves to hang out with his friends and make new ones at the park.
Now my precious Logan. He's 2! Need I say more, except that he is such a handful. He always thinks it's his way or else. Don't take his toys or look at his toys or do something that he doesn't approve of. If only I had all the time in the world to spend with him he would be unbelievable! He loves to read and can practically recite all of "Never, Ever Shout in a Zoo" by himself. We could read all day! He just wants someone around to give him constant attention. He is also my early bird. He is up about 6 and if you don't catch him quick enough he is off to wake everyone else up too since he doesn't want to be alone. (I keep thinking I might get lucky enough to sleep when I am dead-ha ha!) Right now is my struggle with him, but I know in a couple of years he will be amazing!
And then I have my little Slade. What a precious gift from heaven! He is the happiest most loveable, curious thing. At all of 8 months he is so far ahead of the others. When is started scooting at 5-1/2 months I thought there is no way he should be movings around this early. He would even get up on his knees and rock back and forth and I though yeah right. Then, by 6 months he was actually starting to move is skinny little twigs. Of course now at 8+ months there is no stopping him. He is constantly on the run looking for the other kids.
Well, here is the on with life!
