A little update

We are continuing to have fun!

Gordie is everywhere and into everything! Adelee too. They both love coloring and Adelee is doing such an amazing job with it! We went to the Noah's Ark Exhibit at the Skirball Center. Both kids had a blast making rain, thunder, wind and lightening...putting the animals on the ark, and sweeping up the animal's poop.

I've gone 2 nights in a row without nursing Gordie in the middle of the night...I'M FREE! (but miss it a bit) It is kinda weird sleeping through the night! (we'll see if it lasts!)

Adelee and I have been feeling crafty!

Adelee and I had a wonderful morning doing crafts. Adelee practiced sticking stickers, gluing, then moved on to coloring and play-doh. Meanwhile, I did some sewing. I didn't do all of the things in the picture today...but in the past month. From a "man-bag" for gordie (cause he is always carrying around Adelee's pink purse, to a baby pillow case for a friend, to pillow covers for our old sofa pillows. I also sewed a little tractor over a "Splendid" little boy's shirt that had an advertisement on it (got it in a gift bag)so now gordie can enjoy the soft cotton without advertising a store in Beverly Hills and that they love Tori Spelling's daughter Stella.

I am also knitting 35 squares to sew together to make an area rug for our living area. (I have 4 1/2 done...)

Here's a little photo. I took the photo with my computer so it probably isn't the best quality.

We have been having loads of fun!

We are keeping busy with trips to Flagstaff (but I forgot my camera, so check out Mackenzie's blog for those pictures), birthday parties, playdates with our friends and lots of fun with Aunts and Uncles!

Adelee is talking up a storm, loves dance class on Saturday mornings, is potty trained, and is a MONKEY!

Gordie is everywhere! He is falling less, climbing more. Starting to say some more meaningful sounds...but is still frustrated that he can't tell me what he wants. He can point to his nose, which is so cute! He is starting to really like dancing! And he is done with every meal before I have a chance to sit down! Oh and he still loves playing hockey! Unky Nelbo was playing hockey in our driveway the other day when Gordie walked over, picked up his hockey stick and started playing along side of him. It was so cute.

So here are a few photos and a video of the kids.
