Tuesday Tidbits

I just thought I'd give a bit of a McMillan update, since I've been such a blogging slacker. Here are some tidbits:* Myla is talking so much now! "No" and "Down" and "Ma Ma" and "Da Da" are her most common words. She will try to repeat anything we say. She is growing so fast. And totally thinning out. She runs around after Cade and they love to wrestle and play with each other. Her favorite game is Ring Around the Rosie and she'll hum the tune while she's playing. She started nursery in December and loves it! She is our happy, independent, sweet little girl and it is such a joy to watch her personality develop.
* Cade is learning so fast! He loves preschool and is always excited to tell us what he learned and did that day. It amazes us the things that come out of his mouth. Sometimes he seems much older than his three years. He still adores his trains and spends hours every day playing with them. Recently he wanted Kevin to paint one of them black to look like Polar Express. Kevin did and Cade was delighted! He is a very gracious, smart boy. He's always ready to help Myla and makes sure we don't leave her out of anything. Cade just started primary and loves his new Sunbeam teacher Sis. Harding. He has done very well with the transition from nursery to primary. I was worried that no toys, no snacks, and no "fun" would be hard...but it seems he still has plenty of fun.

* Kevin is working hard--both at work and around the house. He is the sweetest husband and father a family could ask for. He has picked up the slack that I dropped when becoming a prego. He comes home from work and plays with the kids and throws in laundry. Life is always happier when Daddy comes home. Kevin got released from his primary calling and is now exclusively in the Elders Quorum presidency. He had two callings there for awhile. He is playing church b-ball and staying busy.

* Christie (sorry for the lack of a picture--I am the picture taker) is doing well. The pregnancy is going very well. I had an ultrasound a couple of weeks ago and the baby looked great. We won't be finding out the sex of the baby--so we'll all be finding out together! The apron club is still in full force and I am loving my new sewing machine that Kevin surprised me with for Christmas. I am most definitely looking forward to spring coming. I realize that we live in AZ so it doesn't get that cold, but my body does not like temperatures below 70. I am a wimp.

Glad to see you no longer a "slacker". I was missing the updates. (Not that I am one to say anything - I've been slacking too).
Glad the pregnancy is going well. Your kids are adorable!! And you are one lucky gal to have a husband that will help with laundry. (Mine cooks so I guess I can't complain too much).
