Happy Birthday Buddy!!

Our little guy turned 3 on Sunday, I can't believe it!! He is such a fun little kid, he fills our days with witty little comments and funny actions. He is a red-headed little fire cracker with a personality to match. His favorite thing to play is "tough-guy" and loves to beat up mom and dad...not so sure how I feel about that....he is generally a sweetheart though with lots of love to give.

I left the room for a second while making his cake and when I came back

this is how I found him...sneeky!

My lovely little Madi

A physical therapist from Kids on the Move has been coming once a month to help Madi with her skills of walking and crawling, and I have to say I am very pleased with her progress in the last couple of months. The other day, with the encouragement of her older brother, Madi attempted to crawl across the living room and almost made it the entire way! I am so excited that even though she is behind, she is finally making some progress. I have learned that a lot of her delay is simply her personality and the fact that she is so laid back and easy going (as well as a little stubborn). Another major improvement was that a couple of days ago she pulled herself up to the coffee table and now that she has figured that out she is trying her new skill out on a lot of things. Probably not as exciting to all of you as it is to me, but she will be going into nursery in a month and a half and I really would like her to be able to walk around with all of her little nursery buddies! Anyway,I am so grateful to have such a wonderful little girl as a part of our family. She has a smile that is beautifully contageous, and a personality to match, and I am glad to say that she's mine!

cute n cuddly

Well of course I had to do the Halloween post....It's kind of strange, but people in our neighborhood don't even trick-or-treat at houses anymore, they have a big ol trunk-or-treat in the church parking lot that lasts about a 1/2 hour to 45 min. Bing Bang Boom and we're done! Anyway lots of fun and lots of candy....
