I feel like a sunflower...


...at least one of my sunflowers. Are they supposed to grow from a single stalk and sprout off in this many directions? Well, that's how I've been lately. I'm finishing up some projects and as they come to a close I'm always frantically searching for the next thing to begin. Right now I'm in many different directions but thank goodness, my kids keep me in line! Brook is now in charge of picking what little is growing in our garden and putting them into her orange shirt with matching blue pants...(haha, I'm so bad).

While at the garden I hear the tractor in the background and what used to be a pointing to the ear with a "gggg" for a learning to listen sound...is now a "hey, there's Peanut...HEY PEANUT!!! Can I ride in your tractor?" from one of the kids.
oh how things progress, so slow at first, with one sound and then another...next thing you know they're screaming...but with words! and I never imagined a tractor could mean so much...you AVT mamas know what I'm talkin' 'bout!
P.S. I'm trying to keep up w/ Loudest House we have two of B's processors out for repairs and one of the backups took a swim. She said it was slow, then confessed that "it may have easily fell in the pool by accident"...she uses easily excessively now. Anyway we are using one while the other is in dry n store.

I was playing with a lego airplane yesterday and doing the "aaaaaa" sound for Nolan's benefit, and he imitated me! I was totally stoked. It won't be long before he's asking me if he can ride on an airplane, lol.
