::battle stage::

Even though Luke is 3 1/2, he is essentially entering into his terrible twos, because of his delays. Everything is a battle!!

Our fourth was really fantastic other than the fact that we tried to go to the beach and discovered Luke will absolutely have no part. The waves completely freak him out. It's hard to tell what is going to have that effect on him. He used to love the waves. Now: panic. Poor little guy.

I also made the mistake of making a sugery dessert for dinner - I thought the kids might like a little treat -- Luke was hyper until 9! Like bouncy of the walls hyper!! He usually goes to bed at 6:30 or 7.

We haven't had cable in so long (just hooked it up for the World Cup) and I'm discovering shows I never knew anything about. I kind of think According to Jim is cute. What are your favorites?

I'm usually on the computer at night with Rob watching his shows.

Leila loves Elvis. Music in general. She can point to her head and said the word "up" today.

Conor loves the waves but just recently has accepted the sand. My biggest struggle with him at the beach is that it is such a wide open space that he wants to RUN and fill up every inch with his own body!

I feel your pain about the terrible two's. I've been telling everyone that Conor has been 2 since he was 18 months old (and he'll be 4 in August). He's just starting to come out of it. The only reason most parents make it through the terrible two's is because it only lasts one year. For us? We must pray for extreme patience and grace!!!

*Grin* Leila has good taste in music. But
poor Luke!

We live right next to a lake, so I'm hoping our little guy will like water, but we'll see.

I just realized that the other day - C will inevitably go through the terrible 2's even though he just turned 3. I figure he'll be going through it just about the same time as M. Oh my...
