Life Is Good

OK. I told you guys that we would keep up with this whole blogging thing. Looks like we are not doing a very good job, so I will give you a short update while my hubby is making dinner.

Zane just got back from his Mom's for spring break. He was gone for a whole week, and he was missed around here. The house is not quite the same without him in it. He recently had a speech breakthrough when he learned how to make the "sh" sound. He can tell you exactly how to make it. "Do your mouth like this, then put your tongue on the top part of your mouth were those bumps are, then blow out." He learned it in his speech class. That class has helped him so much, Sean and I are very proud of him. They are currently learning "pl" sounds and he brought home some radishes that they grew (plant).

Addison is growing at a rapid pace. She is now 4 months and 3 weeks old. You never realize how quick it all really is until you have your own child. She sprouted two teeth before she reached 4 months. She is rolling over both ways, and is working on her abs by trying her hardest to sit up from a lying position. Her eagerness to eat solids surprises me. I think that she is interested in all the new tastes. Last night she started making "ba-ba-ba-ma-ma-ma-la-la-da-da" noises for the first time. For those of you without kids, I know what you are thinking.....something along the lines of "big freakin' deal". I probably would've thought the same thing before she came along, but now everything that that little baby does amazes me.

Sean and I are still truckin'. Working full time and doing the parenting thing. We are toying with the idea of moving to Sherman. I would like to be closer to my family and the pros definitely outweigh the cons. More babysitters, less of a commute for me, a chance for Sean to expand his horizons and explore the field of graphic design........the list goes on. We are taking the kids to the Dallas World Aquarium this weekend, and I'm really looking forward to it.

To sum things up, life is great.

Until next time,
The Nortons

I'm so glad to see you posting updates. I hope you guys can move to Sherman too. Actually wish it was closer to me, but Sherman sounds like a good place to be.

Yup watching children grow is the most amazing thing, and the sad part is if you blink or pay attention to anything else, you can miss the most precious things. Its lovely to be a mother isnt it? Im glad Im not the only one whos diggin' it :)
