...And Pull Tight!

I have been so busy with family, business, church, life, etc....and this week I had 2 sessions canceled due to sick kiddos, so I made time to take pics and blog about my life! It has been a long time since I have written any thing about what my family has been up to lately! Well.....

John is more than half way through PreK and he loves it! I am so happy he is in there, and he has some AWESOME teachers! He can do and has learned so many things in PreK and at the end of this month he will be able to register for Kindergarten, and for some reason I am nervous! He has grown up so fast and has become a gentlemen...he has come a long way! One thing that I wanted to document was him learning to tie his shoes, he has been doing it since before Christmas, but he is a MASTER (double knot)at it now. He use to always ask for help and now he says "I don't need help, mama." Such a big boy! Teaching him to tie his shoes was hard for me, I would rather teach a child to read than tie his shoes any day! Sometimes I can hear him mumble under his breathe while he is tying his shoes...."the bunny goes around the tree and through the borrow and Pull Tight." (yes I stole it from a movie, but it works) I just love him so much!

Blake on the other hand.....he is just about 18months and acts like he is in his terrible twos already. I can't get anything done during the day and that is why I am up posting emailing at 1am. I am sitting at my computer and he is either under my feet, wanting to sit on my lap, or THROWING things at me. He sure does have an arm and wants to throw EVERYTHING...food at the dinner table, toys, anything he can get his hands on! I was trying to work one day and he was throwing toys up and down the stairs and I just let him do it because it allowed me to get what I needed to get done! I also documented the mess....He is coming out of his shell and for sure has a personality so different from John. He is still my lil cuddle bug!

Well, I need to make it a goal to take more pics of my family and my kids....I know I will regret it in the future if I don't get back in the habit of doing that, so I am going to make that a goal! I am going to try to post something about my family each week....or maybe every other week...monthly...LOL! I am just going to try to get something up more than I use to! Enjoy and I have more sessions I need to work on and post up and wedding season is starting to creep up on me very soon!! Oh and thanks for looking at my blog, even though no one comments-RUDE! LOL!

I'll comment, I'll comment!!! i love reading you're blog! Sometimes I don't comment b/c there are sessions of people I don't know....anyway Jack started his terrible twos at 18 months and it was hard because he looked like a devil child compared to the other kids his age...but know he is getting better and some of the other ones are still at the peak of their tantrums. I worry about Eli b/c he has so much energy...it may not work in our favor for the terrible twos:( I can't believe how much john John has grown up! Clint and I still talk about the time we came over and he was showing us how to play tennis on the wii...it was hilarious! Its good to see a post about the fam!

More posts on the family are a good thing. Congrats John John! I had a 3rd grader last year that could not tie his shoes! Can you believe that?!

Ok, so I love reading your blogs...and have two girls almost the same age as your boys. And as I am getting ready to post a comment, they are fighting in the other room. Makenzy is like John, determmined, smart, loving school and interesting to have a conversation with...we have tried the shoe thing...and not ready to tackle it. Thank God for slip on shoes for girls! :) Kyndall on the other hand sounds JUST like Blake. She has a stubborn mind of her own, throws things Makenzy never dreamed of touching and has a temper that shocks us all...I is is a great thing she is so darn cute. But I personally loved this blog because it hit so close to home with my life and girls! I also don't document enough...Thanks for reminding me I should..

I read your BLOG all the time, and love looking at all the pics. Especially when it is those cute Hewell kiddos! LOL... I totally understand putting your kids on the back burner with your hobby/profession. That is like me with monogramming. We do need to do better, or we will regret it when it is too late... Love the pics of John and his shoes... If I could just get Kayden to tie his shoes! I'm going to try your quote!
