Chisholm Family Update

Sorry for the absence of pictures, but I have a wonderful new camera that must be installed on our computer and I haven't had the time (or the real desire) to do it, pics, just words.

We have lots of changes going on around here! Our kiddos are growing like crazy and changing drastically every time we blink.

~Talking much clearer and in sentences now.
~Favorite phrase "I don't want to"--many spankings to come
~Continued obsession with cars, trucks, and the movie Cars esp. Mater
~Loves music, esp. making it by banging on "drums"
~Loves being outside
~Just got rid of one (of the two) paci that he sleeps with, we're giving him a little break before going for the last one
~Is about to embark on potty training time! Fun fun
~Thinks that Ali Grace is the funniest thing ever! He laughs and laughs and laughs at her, and she just stares at him--he's doing it right now and I LOVE IT
~Likes giving Ali Grace a guitar (golf club) or a gun (golf club) so she can play with him--also likes to snatch said toy away from her (we're working on it)
~Loves yogurt, cereal, chicken nuggets, "fishies" (Goldfish crackers), cheese, fruit and "chee-chup" (ketchup)
~He's starting to look more and more like a little boy every day! He's so big!

Ali Grace:
~She is sleeping really well, some nights she wakes up at 2 and then 5, sometimes she makes it all the way to 4 or 5 before waking up
~We just started weaning her from being swaddled and rocked to sleep which has been hard--she's been crying it out--plus I miss wrapping her up and rocking her--but it is time :(
~Likes to have lots of attention, she will grunt, growl, cough and squeal until you look at her--so funny
~Her hair is getting longer on top and is almost long enough for a bow, and it sticks straight up, we decided she looks like a Cupie Doll
~She still will not take a bottle--now she just plays with it, I'm ok with it
~I still think she's going to be our wild one! We'll see.

Brian and I:
~We're both working hard at our respective jobs and trying to figure out how to fit it all in each day
~Brian's job has been really busy, and very stressful lately--I don't know how he does it--he works so hard to provide for us and we appreciate it so much!
~I'm still trying to find a way to get the housework all done each week, any suggestions?
~We're looking at a busy busy summer--Brian's guys weekend, going to the beach, spending time with both sides of the family, going to Memphis, and lots more--and we're looking forward to it
~We may also be doing some home improvements like putting up gutters and possibly painting a few rooms and I am itching to get more stuff up on the walls, we've lived here for almost 2 years and the house is still pretty bare

All in all we're doing great! We miss being closer to friends and family, but we like our little town. We are seeing God's grace in new ways all the time through our kids and we're both learning a lot. God is good and He is here and we're trying to walk with Him daily in faith.
