Yesterday we spent part of the afternoon playing outside in the leaves. It was good fun!I can't believe my baby girl is getting so big! I was looking at a much newer baby in church today and I couldn't believe how big Olivia looked next to her! In 2.5 months I will have a one year old! Wow.
The boys are obsessed with light sabers and swords and play fighting. This is not something I can relate to personally since I am super-girly and I am fairly certain that I never willingly participated in a mock-fight in my entire childhood. But I'll have you all know that I did in fact pretend to be some sort of a fighter type individual for the sake of my sons. They really enjoyed seeing me flail their light saber uselessly around in the air.
Olivia really likes to carry small bouncy balls around. I don't know why. Perhaps because they fit so nicely in her sweet little hands. But she gets very frustrated because she can't crawl and hold on to the ball at the same time. She is so funny.
My boys really enjoyed being buried in the leaves. And there were about a hundred million ladybugs in those leaves! In this picture Aiden is trying to coax a ladybug out of Olivia's jacket.
I LOVE seeing Aiden happy. He has a wonderful laugh. And his eyes just sparkle. On tough days with him it really helps me to see him laugh. It reminds me that he really is such a sweet loving boy who loves to have fun and play.
And my sweet Owen... he has been such a good boy this week. He is really starting to enjoy school and he is adjusting very well to going almost every morning. Tonight is his first night without his beloved suckie (soother) and I must admit it has gone very well so far. Of course he also has a pretty nasty cold and I gave him some cold medicine so that probably helped him fall asleep. We'll see how it goes in the middle of the night if he wakes up and can't find his soother.
I think Owen has a wonderful laugh. And his eyes... wow. My kid has beautiful eyes.
This last picture is of Olivia in her church clothes this morning. I thought she looked super cute in her fun little tights! And now I think my neocitran has finally kicked in. My sore throat seems to have eased some and I am feeling drowsy. Hopefully I will wake up tomorrow morning cold-free.
High ho, high ho, it's off to bed I go.
