It seems between work, parenting, swimming, catching up on Dance Moms, cooking, eating and running errands, it is somewhat a struggle to update this blog. And, I know that is not a massive deal since we only get 75ish hits per day (Hello mom and dad and 73 others!) but it's a deal to me since this is essentially the only place where I record memories. When time goes by this fast, you have to capture and save as many fleeting minutes as you can. Life is too short to live and forget.

Brenna has gone from being the "little sister" to being the smaller "big" sister. Her maternal instincts have already kicked in as she cares for Hayden most of the time. She wipes his nose and even feeds him food off her plate after he devours his.
She brings him his blanket when he cries for it, and finds his yellow car when he loses it. She hugs him when he cries, and holds his hand in the parking lot.
But, despite Brenna's help, they are still a lot of work.
Luckily, David and I were able to escape this weekend to Flagstaff for a much needed break and a very fun triathlon. I will post the race report most likely tomorrow - I just need to find the time.
