Where in the world does the time go??? This time last year I had a baby I brought home from the hospital and now I have a one year old.
It's been so fun watching this little man grow, every stage has been exciting. He's so much like his sister Ash was when she was a baby. They both take life on their own terms and are not in any hurry.
Nash has come so far in the past few months...he crawls, pulls himself up and cruises furniture. He loves to push his toys around the house and get into everything he shouldn't. I don't officially call him a walker but he's taken at least 10 steps on his own, he just prefers to get there faster by crawling.
He's got a few words he loves to use, Hi, Bye, Dog and Night Night,mama, dada, gaaaaaa (grandpa) we all swear he says Ray Ray. I tried teaching him sign but the only thing he cares to use is the sign to eat, which he does it all of the time, he is truly an eating machine.
I think besides his sisters Loretta is becoming a favorite of his :)
I started taking him to a place got Great Play where we play with other kids his own age. We do little obstacles, and sing songs, he absolutely loves it.
He loves to eat and gets very excited when he gets put in his highchair. His favorite food is bananas at this point. He also loves cheese and any kind of berry. He loves PB sandwiches and meat is a big thing for him. He's not a fan of many veggies but we still try :) He's picky and likes what he likes but he wants it all including whatever you're eating. I even take it as far as to avoid walking through the kitchen because god forbid he see's something he may want to eat.
Still loving his car rides which makes life easy since we are always in it.
Now lets talk about Our newly eight year old buggie boo!!
How in the world did this happen?
Seemed like only yesterday I was at home juggling a newborn baby for the first time.
Ashlee is truly a good hearted little girl, super dooper lazy but a sweet girl.
She started third grade and loves it!!
She's been taking piano and singing lessons for the past 9 months and really enjoys it. She's a big Taylor Swift fan and is learning all her songs.
She is a 2nd year brownie in girl scouts this year. Just the two of us went to girl scout camp in Ft. Collins for 2 nights with a few of our troop friends. We had a great time, but most of all I really enjoyed the time I got to spend with her.
She just completed her first season of volleyball and really seemed to enjoy it. She would like to try it again in the spring, so we'll see how that goes.
I really think it's important for kids to try it all so they know what they really enjoy and want to focus on.
She is such a smart little cookie, and we're so very proud of how hard she works. She's already reading small books and her handwriting in great. She aims to please and doesn't like getting in trouble.
She still says she wants to be a mom when she grows up and I can see why.......Her little bro is her everything and she enjoys every bit of him. She carries him around everywhere, pushes him in his stroller etc. She pretty much does everything but change his diaper.
I really don't know what I'd do without her and all her help!!
Another huge thing for the Goddard family was the purchase of our new home we bought in August. I know many of you think we move a lot and I will agree we do, but this is a home we will be in for a very long time. We loved our last house and planned to stay in it, but we saw an opportunity and had to jump on it. My parents are finishing the walk out basement and will be living there. They will have everything they need down there. We have a gorgeous home in a cul-de-sac, with beautiful open space behind us.
Looking back on summer, we really had a great one!! We had a fun camping trip, and a big trip to San Diego to celebrate my dad turning 70. We had many pool days and lots of outdoor time.
I'm really enjoying Fall as it's one of my favorite times of the year. The kiddo's are all ready for Halloween and all the parties involved
Love doing life with my best friend by my side, he's a hard worker for his family and we appreciate him so much
