Has it really been since November? Yikes. My kids are growing up so fast it seems. I often wonder where the time has gone. Right now I'm busy working on my friend's wedding. She's doing a steampunk DIY kind of thing, and I think it's going to be fabulous. I'm currently crocheting the shawls in her wedding colours (peacock blue and black). We're going to be dressed in Victorian/Steampunk style dresses and I'm very excited for the pictures, Skyler is also in the wedding party as the ring bearer. It's not until July though.

Adriel is walking unassisted now. 4 or 5 steps at a time, but I think by tomorrow or the next day he will be full blown walking on his own. I found out there is a medieval festival thing going on the summer time in a little town not too far from here so I am also making a dress to wear to that. Can you tell I like period costumes? And crafting.

Skyler is doing well, we've been practicing letter recognition and phonics on his chalkboard and his whiteboard (which is actually a bar fridge). He is learning so much, and so quickly. I have little doubt that he will be reading on his own before 5 years old. And Adriel is eager to copy anything he sees someone else doing, especially his big brother. Yesterday he climbed right up onto the couch from the floor by himself. I was astounded. Especially since he doesn't really know how to get back down on his own!

My birthday is coming up at the end of the month. I'm going to be a quarter of a century. Sounds so old when I think about it that way. I've been working on my family history and I just love finding out all sorts of things about the past. It's fascinating. It makes me wish my great grandparents were still alive so I could question them about all sorts of things.

Anyway I have two wonderful little boys who need my attention. Hopefully I will be able to write more before another month or two pass by!

I always love hearing how you and the boys are making out! Happy early bday! I'm a January baby too. It'll be my 27th on the 24th! Yikes!

Wow, that's awesome. I can't believe Adriel is already walking, and that Skyler will be reading on his own. That's great!

And I saw a picture of the dress you're working on, it's beautiful. You're so creative.
