Whoa, I feel like I blinked and now October is nearly over, and I don't want to let it go by without our monthly update on the little dudes. It's funny, statistically speaking, this is one of my least popular posts, but it is hands-down my favorite one to write. I guess it all comes down to the reason that I blog - and it is really and truly to have a record of our lives. Of their lives.
Luke: You are walking my man! Sometimes you are running. You started to walk the week of your birthday, and then the week after that you just took off like you had been doing it your entire life. It still surprises me to see you walk past - usually you are holding your favorite red shoe.
Jack: You are SO excited for your birthday party (4 days away now). You really get it this year, you know that people will be coming here, that there will be cake and balloons. I know that even if the day is rainy you will have a wonderful time, so I am so excited too!
Luke: You are talking up a storm. Well...in one year old terms anyway. You newest vocabulary additions are 'hot' 'blub-blub'(fish), and 'downstairs'- you point to the stairs when I get you out of bed. It is precious. I didn't believe it the first few times, but it is definitely a new word!
Jack: You recently learned about germs, and how they can be different places and that is why we wash our hands. While we were at Mimi's house you opened the garbage can and peered inside, then asked "Mommy! Are there germs in here?!" It was cute to see you on a germ hunt - although I think maybe you misunderstood the germ thing in general?
Luke: You still aren't sleeping well! You little punk! I don't know how a person can be as sweet as you are without some solid sleep. Bonkers my boy. Bonkers!
Boys: It has been a pretty wild month, but you two are troopers. There a lot of things that you don't know or understand, and it always reassures me to see your sweet personalities in the midst of other 'grown-up' troubles. Daddy and I are both so incredibly proud of you two, and we are so grateful to have this wonderful little family (even if you two still refuse to take a family picture!!).
