Wow! Where is the time going? I can't believe it is Mid-November. I'm afraid if I blink, it will be February and I will have missed all the festivities and birthdays to come. This year is what we call our "Big Thanksgiving." We have all of my family and Alex's family coming to our house. So it will be about 30-35 people. We will be having Turkey, Ham, Leg of Lamb and all the sides. I need to make a list to get organized of what to do so I don't get overwhelmed. Cleaning, shopping, early cooking, cleaning, finishing up some projects, cleaning. Oh maybe I should get organized first.
And as if Big Thanksgiving isn't enough, we are doubling it up with a baby-shower as well. Alex's niece, Alex, is due a few days after Thanksgiving so we are throwing the baby-shower while the family is all together. Hopefully she doesn't go into labor early, well she may be grateful to go early...
On a fun note, Katie and Sean are both in full crawling mode. Sean is actually pulling himself up to standing, but he's not cruising just yet. Soon. They are the happiest little babies you have ever seen. They are always smiling. Always. They are eating table food instead of baby food and just love it. This is such a fun age with twins. They have their own little version of Marco Polo. One will yell, "Aaaah!" and of course the other one answers "AH!" Sean is so incredibly strong, it is hard to take something away from him. He is growing so fast he will probably be Cole size by the time he is 18 months. He is in 2T clothing and Cole is in 3T. Cole can fit into 2T, they are just too short.
Cole adores being the big brother. He is always keeping on eye on the babies and afraid they will get hurt. I have to remind him sometimes that not everything they touch will hurt or choke them, mainly the toys. He must think his toys are all evil and want to hurt the babies.
Oh, and Miss Katie-Belle, is the biggest flirt with her long eyelashes and pouty lips! I can't imagine where she gets it from.Twins really are truly amazing. I love how the can be eating or playing and they just stop, look at each other, reach out and hold hands and smile at each other, then go back to what they were doing. It just melts my heart every time.
I know I need to post more pictures soon, and I will. I promise. As soon as I can catch all three kids and get them to sit still for 1 second.
One more shout out, congratulations to Eva and Thom! They welcomed their third son into the world on the 9th, Brice. He is a handsome little fellow. Hopefully one day I'll be able to meet all of her boys in person someday!
