Yawn......(waking up from my blogging break). Wow! October and November are crammed full of activities for us. For the first time in my life I am finding myself wishing we could just get through these holiday months...quick please. For those of you that know me well, that is a very uncharacterisitc statement for me to make! I am usually the one that is getting into the monthly themes full gear. However, I seem to have something, rather 4 little somethings slowing my pace down a little these days. :)
Let's see....at this point October is now over. Arik and I were unfortunately both working Halloween night so we didn't get to see our little gobblins and ghoul all dressed up ( had to write it:) We picked out the costumes earlier in the month and the boys got a little use of them throughout the month. Maddox was Thomas the train. Jax was Pumkin Whinnie the Pooh. Ty had a monkey suit and Olivia had a little ladybug dress. I will have to atleast get a picture of the twins in their costumes b/c my mom said that they just got too tired to even put them on. Plus the weather was a bit too warm, afterall they weren't intended to be sweatsuits! You know with our Florida weather it's so hit or miss. The one year that I dress them as beachbums it will be like 50 degrees out. ( Don't laugh you Northerners! )
Progress wise the twins are doing great. Olivia gets in her little walker and is all over the place! That little girl books it. Ty has zero interest in mobility. He is chubby...happy and content just relaxing with as little motion as possible.....takes just after his dad ( wink wink...III'MMMM just kiddin' ) On a serious note his therapy is seems to be helping. His little head is still womped out, but he looks both ways and sits with his neck straight now. At this point it's just a matter of his noggin taking a natural re-shaping to his new found posture.
Jaxon is my little munchkin. He is so spiteful! He told me in the car the other morning, "Darnit mom, I don't love you anymore " Before my shock at his new word set it, I had to wipe the smile off my face. He is also in a real sociable faze. You ask him his name, " Nufing " age, " Nufing" whose your mommy, "NUFING!!" ( Nothing for those that may be slow at toddler translation ) Clearly him and Maddox think that word has a different meaning b/c they both seem to use it a lot.
...( Just a side note......the boys are in the living room watching Oobi and for those of you that don't know...Oobi is a talking human hand. You know, the kind when you draw a face on the side of your hand and then make it talk??? How it keeps their interest I have no idea, but Maddox told me the other day, " Mom, Oobi's not boring. " Oops, I guess he heard me say that! But honestly, 30 minutes of a high-pitched talking hand? ) ....
Okay, onto Maddox. He is my big boy. Each day he is losing more and more of his little toddler stage. It hit me real hard once when he was walking next to Arik. He is so tall and "gets" so much. I looked at him and it was hard for me to imagine that he is still only 3. I feel like when I talk to him now we have full conversations. His memory is sharp and he picks things up so quick. Today we went to the Fire Dept Chile cookoff and he threw the balls at the dunktank and watching him ....phew what an arm! I know I am his mom and I am partial, but it's to be expected. I did have to explain to him tonight that he "finished his popsicle first" and that he did not , " beat Jaxon up " .. He came in the room holding his popsicle sticking claiming, " Mom, I beat Jaxon up! I ate ALL my popsicle."
Life is still crazy, I'm not gonna lie. I know that it will be for a very long time. But things are definately settling down. I can feel the air being let out of the crazy balloon. I want to continue blogging. However, my stinkin' camera batteries are dead and I have been procrastinating getting new ones. I take so many pictures on my camera phone throughout the day, but it is such a long prcess to load those up and I get lazy by the end of the night. I will continue, I'll try to keep up the dailies, but if not atleast a couple times a week. Until next time!!
