33 months & 17 months

No trick or treating for these cats - we can thank hurricane Sandy for that :/  But they got a lollipop and a little extra milk tonight to help them continue to grow into the big kids they are becoming.

Happy Halloween!
We got our power back tonight :)


No this is not a Halloween post.  We lost power...made it through Sandy with it but couldn't hang in the aftermath.  Been dark & quiet since 2 yesterday.

Bring it Sandy!

The first day of no power is kinda fun, anything much after that and you better believe the kiddos and I will be makin the 8hr drive to Grandma & Grandpas.  

Still keeping our fingers crossed we make it through Sandy with the lights on & a little heat to warm the babes.

16 months of her life were spent despising the swing.
Last week she asked to "go swinnnnng"
Now she never wants to get out.

Who ate your bowl of sunshine this morning, Thundercloud?

Rough day (week?) over here on Mulberry Street :/ 
Kiddos are still just as sick as they were at the start of all this.  Still getting up early.  Still not napping great and still being needy, fussy babies.

To boot Logan had an eye doctor appointment today.  Yet another prescription for him - this time bifocals.

Hands down today was Logan's favorite therapy day EVER!

Tuesday, 23 October 2012


Today was Logan's first day of school! kinda.  Kevin & I took him in for his transition meeting- his transition out of Birth to Three and into Preschool. We met the Special Education director and then sat with 3 of the schools therapist, one of the Preschool teachers and our Birth to Three service coordinator - we managed to sum up Logan in less than 2hrs. 

 Logan even got a visit from the school nurse when he ran right into a desk and busted his lip open :o  Makin' himself known he is :)

He'll have to take a standardized tests to solidify his eligibility for Special Education and then we'll meet with the school again to set up goals and arrange how often he'll receive his therapies (which the school provides).

 The first school day for real for real will most likely be the day after he turns three (which by my calendar will be Friday Feb. 1st). He has the option of taking the big school bus, the little school bus or have me drive him.  He will go 5 days a week for a half day either in the morning or afternoon.

I have a feeling the next few months are going to fly by....


Both kiddos are sick but this little lady takes the cake for looking absolutely miserable.

Not sure how I missed this picture last week!
It rained  a lot that week and Mommy had enough of the indoors so we went walkin' in the rain.  Logan was BEYOND happy about it & I feel like I might have captured it in the picture :)

This is what I know...

I know that before bedtime Kevin & I "stage" Logan's room with things we know he likes
I know that at 7pm the timer on the monkey light will turn on
I know that we will put him down around 7pm and that he will most likely get out of bed
I know he'll be super siked to see that we've turned it to the motorcycle page in his book
I know that he will pick up the two trucks as he's saying "one, two trucks"
I know he'll take either the orange truck or the truck book into bed with him
I know that he'll most likely wake up at 6:30 and lay in bed kicking his feet
I know the timer on his light will turn on at 6:45am at which point he'll jump out of bed
I know that he'll dump the bucket of pictures on the shelf out and look at them-one at a time
I know that shortly after he wakes up he'll start banging his head on the door, he wants out
I know when we open the door his first words will be "ouuuuuttt"
I know that he hasn't had warm milk in a realllllly long time but that he looooves it
I know that he will cry when his warm milk is all gone and so I go get him a little more

Rut Row

This weekend we were upstairs and  Logan was downstairs - 5mins later when we came back downstairs Logan was outback.  We couldn't figure out if we left the door open or if Logan managed to get out there by himself....

Today we figured out the answer to that question:

Wide Awake

So 2 weeks ago we couldn't keep her awake and now we can't keep her asleep.  Here she is resting on Mommy & Daddy's bed after she decided 30mins was a good enough nap.

We always try to do something fun on the anniversary of the day we got engaged.  That day was yesterday, October 6th and although having a yard sale might not seem like fun it was cause we made some cash money AND our attic is 100 times more organized.

Our profits bought us vino, cheese and bread for dinner :)

Oct 2nd

We've moved around so much that somehow I've managed to avoid the system - until today. 

Thankfully I was NOT selected.
Go figure Kevin has been called for the first time later this month.
