What my little elves are up to this season

Wow these babies are growing up so fast and I am not even keeping up with their developmental leaps. So...I thought I would blog about a few of the latest developments with the kiddios.
Isaac is talking and expressing himself more and more every day. We have full-fledged interesting conversations now. He is asking "why" about everything and totally into pretend play. He is still not really into writing just yet, but I imagine once he turns 4 he will start getting more into that stuff. He is also dressing himself, though sometimes things go on backwards and / or inside out! He is REALLY excited about Christmas and Santa this year. He is a lot of help with Eden. He brings her toys and most anything I ask him to help with. He is loving Mom's morning out this year.
Eden has 4 teeth, 2 on top, two on bottom. And about to get her 5th one! She is still such an easy, happy baby. She sleeps better than her brother!! She has been crawling since about Halloween, mostly scooting and dragging herself around but she is working on the "real crawl". She can get anywhere she wants to go for sure! She is waving and clapping her hands now, started that on Wed before Thanksgiving. She can say Da-Da and knows what it means, she can say Mama, but only accidentally! She loves watching her brother more than anything else. She has been eating real food for a while now, and is pretty much over the bottle, though I guess I have to keep giving it to her for a few more months!

Funny things Isaac says

Isaac's words:
Amimals (Animals)
Lellow (Yellow)
Crown (Crayon)

"I promise I won't do that for ever again!"

Sometimes when he is standing to pee at the toilet, a fart slips out and he slaps his butt and yells "No poo poo! It's NOT YOUR TURN!!"

~ I am sure there will be more to add later

I Love Halloween

We pulled out our scary skeleton and put him on the door today and he was losing some body parts. I re-attached one hand, and 2 legs with fishing line. Isaac was totally into it, mostly because he got to use the scissors. So this evening I was at Bi-lo, returning a movie (Year One, which was awesome by the way), and they had their pumpkins on sale. There is my way-cool pumpkin, isn't he scary and awesome? Can't wait to show him to Isaac tomorrow. I think I will always love Halloween. I don't have too many warm and fuzzy memories with both of my parents together, but we definitely always had a blast on Halloween. My parents always took us trick or treating and my dad was an awesome face-painter / costume designer. He would give us a HUGE trash bag to put all of our candy in, but then send us up to the houses with tiny little empty bags to trick-or treat in, so the people at the doors would feel sorry for us and think we had hardly any candy. We would make our little sad urchin faces and get tons of sympathy candy and dump our tiny bags into the giant trash bag when we got back to the car. Yup I am TOTALLY passing that tradition on. :-) Trick or Treat!!

Another Reason I Love Him

So it is Saturday. Jason is working a half-day, from 9:30 till 1:30. He gets up with the kids, lets me sleep in then gets ready for work after I get up. About 10 minutes after he leaves I hear him pull back in and wonder what he forgot. He brought me breakfast from Dunkin Donuts. What a great Dad and awesome husband he is!

Going out on his own

Wow, so last Friday Jason had the grand-opening of his Allstate agency. I am so proud of him and all of his hard work. It has been so rewarding watching his dream come to fruition. We have been preparing for this for about 6 months. From August to September he was gone for 5 weeks (weekdays only-thank God) training in Atlanta and Chicago. We did some painting in the office and re-arranging things to make it our own before his opening. I am going to attempt to post some pictures. We think it looks pretty awesome. Some of my Dad's pottery is there on display.

I know the next few months will be intense and laden with hours and hours of work for Jason. I also know that he will find it rewarding to see his own business grow and flourish. We are so grateful for this opportunity!
