Happy Holidays!



The creeper & crawler has definitely hit perpetual motion, much to our glee, so getting them together, still, for even a moment's time is a *huge* accomplishment!! :) My two little elves w/ the big guy in the red suit! Happy Holidays!

On the MOVE!!!!

May I present....our creeper & crawler! Given, she's NOT crawling a room's length @ a time, but this is a start!! I'll TAKE it, especially after there were those who cast their doubts & made it VERY clear they didn't expect she'd crawl before Thanksgiving!! Ha ~ perpetual motion here we come!!!

Pumpkins!

THIS was last year...


A year later, and look what happens...!






It's never ceases to amaze me the growth and change that happens in a YEAR in the life of a child, mine or others. Yes, I tend to favor a small walk down memory lane now-a-days, but seeing the growth, the change, the mastery with which kids tackle life and all they teach us leaves me at a loss for words (Ha, not to mention adding a whole new PERSON to the mix!). I'm so blessed to BE a parent and be able to take it all in, for better (awesome trip up to the pumpkin patch up North) or worse (coming home w/ a badly sunburned baby :( and a toddler w/ a pus-filled finger)! Ha! Here's to next year's pumpkin journey & the leaps & bounds with which they'll grow between now & next October!

Halloween Who's Who?


It's funny ~ having a boy & a girl many have commented that they look NOTHING like each other...though these aren't EXACTLY the same, I've tried to catch some of the same shots with them in/on the same things to compare at each age/stage...and the likeness is, I think, startling! Ha ~ some genes, huh?!?! :)

The Waiting Game

Where we were a month ago:


Where sweet baby E is today:




You can barely make out the scars on her right heel, and if you didn't KNOW it was her right arm, it looks almost normal...the waiting game of 6-12 months is maddening, but I'm looking forward to her first return visit to OT tomorrow to measure the progress she's had thus far (even though the neuro said we won't see progress 'til a minimum of 3 months out). Fingers crossed and hopefully this surgery will be all she needs!

Rolling Rolling Rolling...

She can roll!! After MANY hours & efforts to try to help her roll, our girl can do it on her own!! :) Not her best roll, mind you, but still, we'll take each one!! :) Go E!

Music to my ears...

Who knew that having a big brother was SO much fun?!?! Apparently, even at the 4 mo. mark, little E has discovered this about her big brother, and BOY did she ever let us know how funny SHE thinks he is...Daddy reset the camera and cut out the beginning shrieks of laughter, but I still think her belly laugh is pretty darn cute. :)

We love to READ!!!

Our evening tradition, before bedtime, is to read. Any book is game (usually) and B often stretches the books out as loooong as he can to read multiple. :) With the addition of little sister, B has taken seriously the job of "reading" to his little sister like we read to him. Thanks, Auntie Meg, for the enclosed super-cute book...last night he "read" this to E no less than 3 times, including the ladybug puppets, much to his sister's delight! :)

With no further ado, I give you B and "Five Little Ladybugs"!

Flashback....

Not so long ago, I popped little man in the basket while I did laundry & it turned into a photo op...why not?!?!



Funny how life changes yet stays the same...fast forward ahead three years, and here's the new little lady, slightly larger than big brother and barely fits into the same basket. :)

...And We're Back!!!

After a LOOOOOOONG hiatus, here we are with newest member already chatting!! Ms. E will be 3 months old in a few days and we're loving her red hair & chatty little personality!! Ha ~ she already knows she'll have to work hard to get in a word, edgewise, around her brother!

Here's a video only a parent (or grandparent) could love...nothing crazy or flashy, just cute, but Grammy & Grampie, eat your heart out!! We miss you!
