We’ve had intermittent internet access here the past few days due to the basement remodeling going on in addition to the holiday, so I haven’t been able to update the blog as much as I’d like to. This evening, we did something I have been wanting to do a long time…the Mentos Diet Coke Geyser Trick! It was easy and fun and no one lost a finger!
Miss Saucy and her pigtails!
The formerly fat 30 pound cat is taking a self nap…
And this amazing little guy is now three months old! How did this happen? How is he already a quarter of a year old? NO WAY! He is sitting up in the Bumbo chair, can hold his head up pretty well, likes to sit and watch the people around him, coos and “talks”, laughes and smiles. Started drooling which makes me think he will get his first teeth at four months like his brother and sister did. Happy, happy, little fellow. Such a joy to have in our lives!
We celebrated on Saturday, but Miss G’s actual first birthday is today!
She’s in full-on toddler mode, walking around, talking, laughing, playing with a big smile and infectious laugh.
What a wonderful, fun year it has been! She brings us so much joy everyday!
Happy Birthday, Greer!
Sigh…can’t believe it, but this little lady turned 11 months old yesterday! We are rapidly coming up on a year! In the last week, she has made the transition to walking, leaving crawling behind.
She is a happy, healthy baby, who loves to watch her big brother, yet isn’t afraid to verbalize when he gets a little too grabby with her. She wakes up every morning with a big smile on her face and is ready to go!
She brings us so much joy, our cheery little Greery!
Getting the hang of the walking thang!
Tonight is Beggar’s Night in Des Moines, which means the kids get to trick-or-treat in the evening. The forecast said it would be in the mid-50s and sunny…it was in the low 40s, windy and spitting rain…not the most ideal weather. We made the best of it, and had a great time! Alex dressed up as a tank – and he kept the box on for two whole houses!
Mom had fun putting Jason and his ghostly gal pal on the front porch!
As you can see, Alex just…loved…his…costume…not…
And we’re off!
After 35 minutes and one block, Dad got to carry
1. the tank box
2. the treat bucket
3. the helmet
4. the child
We headed off to see Grandma Faye and Grandma and Grandpa for some more treats and pizza. We grudgingly put the tank costume back on for family members and then put on a show!
Alex on his first day of Montessori school…
Sigh…they grow up so fast!
Mom and Dad were just thinking that 20 years ago they both were starting high school (yikes!). Class of ’93 rules!
