Wow - time is flying

Well, Mark is almost 8 months old and I have been really bad about keeping up to date. We have hit many milestones in the first 8 months, the biggest of which...he is now crawling! Yep, that's right, our daily life now involves the little bugger moving around after things. He's still new to it, but it won't take long...that's for sure. These are a couple little videos I took the other morning - he gets his sights set on something and watch him go! The 2nd one is my favorite because he looks up at me and's just one of those 'look out, I'm a comin' grins...

More updates: Mark has 3 bottom teeth and the top two are coming VERY soon (not soon enough for him or us!!). I just wish it wasn't so painful. He is starting to 'blab' in the car...blah, blah, blah is fun to hear. Matthew and I get a kick out of it when we hear it while driving around. It's like he's trying to tell us something or be a part of our conversation. He's eating like a horse...breakfast (especially yogurt) is his favorite meal. Dinner is his least favorite (or at least he eats the least at this meal). But, he definitely lets you know when he's hungry!

Other updates:
- Matthew is enjoying summer...participating in karate a few times a week, going to summer camp, and enjoying the pool (yep, we invested in an above ground pool - hopefully it lasts a bit longer this time).

- I have switched my hours and am now working evenings. I get to be home with the boys during the day and am LOVING it! Sleep...what's that? And, who needs it?!? I am just really enjoying the time I have now with the two of them. And, once school is back in session, I can actually take Matthew to school and some days pick him up...what a concept!

- Joe is busy...busy, busy. Life keeps moving forward for Skyline Productions and St. Kolbe Productions. He has long days but tries his best to make it home to be with the boys in the evening. He also helps in the morning when he can so I can get just a few more winks of shut-eye.

So, the Reynolds Four are doing well...we are enjoying the time we have with each other, day by day. We have learned recently how precious time can be with the ones you love, so we do everything we can to take advantage of it as much as we can. And some pictures below...for your viewing pleasure!

Our first family dinner with all of us at the table (kinda)!
