Welcome to our newest location for blogging! I decided to change locations because I like this site better. Anyway, I am hoping to return to blogging because the hubby has been making me feel guilty that I haven’t been chronicling Mattie’s development. My days are definitely a lot more fuller than I would have imagined with two. With Yah-Yah in many activities and outings this summer the blogging had to be put on the back burner.

Mattie has been so active and army crawling all over. She’s speedy and always getting into Yah-Yah’s stuff. She’s really active and can’t sit still. The hubby and I are a little worried about what kind of toddler she’s going to turn into if she is so non-stop now. She’s also very vocal and always has a smile for you. Unlike Yah-Yah when she was little, Mattie smiles all the time. Warms our heart!!! She’s also got two pearly whites on the bottom which makes her smile that much better.

Yah-Yah also had a great week of VBS and by the middle of the week was saying bye to me before we even got to the doors. It’s bittersweet to see her so independent! We thought that she would reach her teenage years before she started being embarrassed by us but it’s already started! We were trying to videotape and photograph her dancing and singing and all we have in our recordings are her saying “no, daddy, no…” Who would have thought a 2.5 year old would already be embarrassed by her parents!!?? She’s in store for a whole lot more…it’s our privilege as a parent, isn’t it?

That’s it for now! Enjoy the rest of your summer!

PS With the addition of the hubby’s new camera we have a ton of pics! I am just trying to weed through them to post! They should be up soon!
