So try as I may, I've not been so good at keeping up with my blog lately. The month of May was nuts and June is shaping up to be just about as crazy. Again, I am so thankful we can make little trips here and there to visit with friends and family.

Aidan was super sick last weekend. He went from having an allergy flare up to pneumonia in less than two days. Needless to say, I panicked a bit. We've got him set up to do allergy testing on the 11th which will hopefully help us get a handle on these little episodes. He was SUCH a trooper at the ER last Saturday night. Poor guy got an IV AND a shot in his bum. The IV was supposed to keep him from having to be stuck agian but the nurse messed up and took it out before giving him the injection. Obviously he doesn't work with children too much. Aidan has recovered very well and hopefully in a couple weeks we'll have a more effective plan of action.

Hannah is such a little mommy. Whether it's one of her baby dolls or her brother, she's always taking care of someone. Her "parenting" has actually had a huge impact on mine. When I hear her repeating some of the less desirable things I've said when she's correcting her babies, it doesn't sound appropriate at all. I guess that's just one more part of this learning process called child rearing.

Aaron is Aaron. What can I say? He's driven me a little more nuts than usual lately but he's a man and apparently that's just what they do. I have found that I have the hardest time dying to self when it comes to him. I want to be the wife God has created me to be but some days my desire to serve and submit are replaced with the desire to fuss and scream. Being a wife is tough work (it's right up there with manual labor and parenting) but I'd much rather put some time and effort into my marriage now than wake up one day when the kids are grown and wonder who my husband really is. Aaron is such an awesome man and I'm so very thankful God placed him in my life.
