'Time Flies When You're Having Fun'

For the past few weeks/months, Jon has reminded me I havent updated the blog since Fathers Day... I almost didnt believe him and then I thought about everything that's been going on in our lives since then and it unfortunately made sense. So for the few of you who followed the blog for kiddo updates, I send my sincere apologies. 

And to that point I am just going to put it out there.... there is no way I could adequately update you all on June 21st - November 2nd.... But I will, once again, recommit myself to better and more frequent updates moving forward.

So... here goes the latest post.... 

Saying 'times flies when you're having fun' is no exception for the Whittakers. Its hard to believe that just last week we celebrated Eva's 2nd and Kellan's 1st birthdays! I thank my lucky stars for the amazing kids they have become and that Jon and I successfully kept our sanity through what everyone told us would be the 'hard part' of having two kids so close together. While the blog suffered a bit, I must say that may be it. Yeah we dont all travel together much and maybe we dont eat out much anymore, but thats about it. Life has continued, I have been fortunate to still travel with my job, Jon always steps in as 'mom' when need be, Eva is a ball of energy, talking up a storm and fully embracing her two -year old self. Kellan, what can I say.... for all of life's many surprises, he could very well be the best one ever. He's the sweetest, cutest little man. He wakes up excited to be alive, loves giving hugs, waves, saying Dada, Momma, Ball and points at what he wants. 

As of last week we can say we're off formula, out of 'baby clothes' in most stores and have two forward facing car seats. We celebrated their milestone birthdays at the same pumpkin patch we did for Eva but with sunshine and more friends than we could ask for. We are 'that' family at a restaurant apologizing for the mess, our living room looks like a toys r us. We snuggle up and read Dr. Seuss and Goodnight Moon more than we ever imagined and go through 2-3 gallons of milk a week... my Tahoe has more crayons, goldfish and DVD's that I thought it could ever hold....but you know what.... I wouldnt have life any different than it is right now!

Even if time keeps flying by, these 4 Whittakers will just keep having that much more fun!
