Ten on Tuesday

1.  I am going to have a nephew this Spring!  I am not the only one excited!  When we asked Kelsea if she wanted a boy or a girl cousin, she quickly replied "a boy, I already have a girl one." (referring to Lorelei)

2. Speaking of funny things kids say, Kelsea told me when she gets bigger her boobs are going to grow like bubbles.  LOL!

3. Kelsea swallowed a penny on Sunday.  We now have to make sure it leaves her body.  Yep, that's Wallis' job.

4. Lorelei had her 9 month well check today.  19 pounds, 11 ounces (75th) & 28 1/4 inches (75th).  Big girl!  We are also happy to report that her head size has bumped up from 5th percentile to 15th!  :-)

5.  No H1N1 vaccine available yet (they only enough for high risk kids).  At least it made the decision on whether or not to get that vaccine for Lorelei easy!

6. We are heading to GG's house for Thanksgiving.  Wallis is excited about playing two rounds of golf.  I'm just hoping to get through the rest of my November magazines.  Lofty goal, I know.

7. I'm actually still in awe that it's Thanksgiving already.  I am pretty sure I say that every year. 

8. I am just about done with my Christmas shopping.  What are you hoping Santa brings?

9. Debating taking Kelsea to see Fantastic Mr. Fox.  I adored Roald Dauls books as a kid, but they seem to think the appropriate age for this move is 7.  Anyone seen it or have an opinion?

10. I hope everyone has a wonderful Thanksgiving with their families. I am thankful for the many blessings in my life, especially my incredible friends and family!

9 Months

Well my littlest love, it's hard to believe that you are 3/4 of a year old.    You have mastered crawling, and way too quickly moved on to standing.  I know it won't be long before you're taking your first few steps so we are going to enjoy this smaller range of mobility while we can! Even if it has made picture taking a bit more difficult...
You are a healthy eater just like Kelsea.  We go through 7-8 jars of food a day and you are still drinking 20 ounces of formula.  Which probably still explains those chunky thighs and round belly (which might actually be bigger than your head).

You still only have two teeth, but we hope more break through soon, because you don't seem too comfortable with the teething phase.  

You also don't like to nap at daycare (just like your sister).  Oh dear, I'm seeing a pattern.  We are thrilled when your activity sheet says you've napped for an hour, but more often than not it's less than that.

You still love the bath, Emily's toys, and shaking you booty (as Kelsea likes to call it).
And sometimes you smile like a pirate...aarrrhhh
But most of the time you have your mouth wide open
and we just love how we can always catch you with a smile

Happy Halloween!

Before heading to the Village to go trick- or-treating we took a few photos.  Luckily with Halloween on a Saturday, we weren't rushing quite as much as previous years,  so I took quite a few pictures.  One-hundred-and-two to be exact.  So here's just a few (okay so more than just a few) of Lorelei's 1st and Kelsea's 4th Halloween.
First it was pictures of Princess Belle
Our little diva
and always a princess 

Then we brought our little bee out, so that we could compare the photos to Kelsea's first Halloween.
Peek-a-boo, I see you.
Maybe I can just crawl away from this craziness...
And Kelsea's first Halloween, three years ago.

And three years later loving her own baby bee
Here's Lorelei in her "real" costume.  The one she wore trick or treating (and one that is not her big sisters).
Mom, I'm really not enjoying this thing on my head. 

Won't someone help me out here?
Ok, so I guess we think the pig hat is a whole lot cuter than she does
And some with the parents
Lorelei is under there somewhere...I think
Hope your Halloween was a treat just as ours was!
