Life goes on...

Oh poor blog. So neglected...

Stinx keeps saying the cutest or weirdest things that make me laugh and everytime I think, "I gotta blog that" but it never happens. I'm trying to write them in a paper journal too... we'll see how it goes.

Bitta is just as adorable as the day I met her. Actually, more so. Just so stinkin cute. I love how she flirts with me when she has my attention... and I love love love watching Stinx make her laugh. It's so great that they can play together in little ways. Usually in the mornings Stinx wakes up first and when Bitta wakes up we crawl on the bed and snuggle with her. Usually she'll roll towards Stinx and "attack" him with her hands. Stinx thinks this is hilarious and pretends to be scared... ah I love it.

The weather is becoming lovely and I have been working in the garden quite a bit. It's starting to look a bit fuller now. For those who don't know, when we first moved into the house there was a HUGE pond in the backyard. It was awesome, really really nice... but I couldn't sleep at night knowing my kid(s) may fall into it and drown (typically mother worrying). So I threw some ideas at Dad about what to do with it... he finally agreed to let me put a perennial garden where the pond was. So last year we filled it up with soil and put some plants in. My grandpa, who is an excellent gardener, helped me out with some really lovely plants. And this spring they have all come back so nicely. I've also been going to some local plant swaps and finding plants for soo cheap! Either $1 or $2 a plant!! Sure beats the expensive garden centres... I did go to a garden centre once this spring and spent way tooo much money on a small basket of perennials. I have vowed to never return to a garden centre for perennials.... never again!

Guess thats all for now... I'm planning to do a cloth diaper post soon because I've been on a diaperswappers bender ! LOL.

Good bye dear blog.
