It's been awhile. Something about 3 small children doesn't leave you a lot of time for blogging. Don't know why.
To update, Che is fast approaching 5 years old, and wants to talk about his birthday quite often. At this point he's thinking he wants a chocolate cake with peanut butter filling, and a Star
Wars Birthday. Of course he wants to be Luke Skywalker for Halloween too. He's very excited that he got to choose Lucy and Zoe's costumes as well (Leia and Yoda) Due to my mom being ever generous with her time we were able to take Che to the Shedd in August. He had a great time, and his favorite thing to watch was the big sea turtle in the middle aquarium. He really liked the 4-D penguin movie too.
Check out his awesome shades. (The claws lift up for a larger viewing area if necessary)
The weekend we were in Chicago was also the weekend of the air and water show, so as we were enjoying the beautiful weather outside on the Shedd Patio Che got to see the Blue Angels fly over downtown several times. It was the greatest, and free!
Lucy and Zoe are 8 months old, almost 9. Lucy is crawling on her tummy and has been seen pulling up on her knees and rocking. She is very independent and likes to feed herself, biter biscuits and gerber puffs. Zoe has two teeth on the bottom both coming in within a week of one another. She is sitting up like a champ and is still very laid back and happy (unless the teeth are bugging her)
The weather here has been wonderfully cool, to the point that we had to put an extra blanket on our bed, and the girls wore fleece sleepers a couple of nights. I love this time of year. It also meant that we got to get out some of the girls' new clothes that people got us as gifts, like these adorable sweatshirts:
And we get to accessorize with shoes...
And of course since there's never a dull moment in our house, the girls have come down with Hand Foot and Mouth (or so we think) It's a really mild case of just a few spots on the girls' hands and feet, and Che hasn't had anything... here's to hoping he doesn't come down with it too.
