@jmccall79 - can you post a link to this in the FB group and make it an announcement so it is sticky at the top of the page?
DS is doing great, he's a wild man. Running all over the place. He adores our cats, and likes to chase them around the house saying "Kee-kah" (kitty cat). Only one will tolerate him, the other is still afraid of him. He's a happy, funny, smart, and just all around generally incredible kid, and I feel so lucky to have him in my life. Watching him learn new things is one of my favorite things in life.
Thanks for asking about us!
Natalie is flourishing! She is coming along well with her vocabulary and recently started forming sentences like "Oh monkey where'd you go?" and "Where are you daddy?" It is adorable and so much fun to communicate with her. She hugs and kisses everything. She just started walking independently last week. Every day she gets better at it, and I know before long she'll be running all over the house. It's wonderful to watch her blossom into such an amazing little girl. I am loving this phase.
As for me, I am starting a new job in a few weeks. I was at my previous job for 7 years so I am looking forward to the change. I will have to go out to Cali for a week for orientation. Unfortunately, H and Nat can't come along. I am having a hard time dealing with that and I will miss them both immensely. I hope Nat copes well without me - she is still nursing - although part of me thinks this will be good for both of us. (At least, that is what I am telling myself)
Editing to add a pic of Nat from a few weeks ago. Yogurt aftermath, she was quite proud of her work...
My Colton...Growing up so fast!
And Coralee, his baby sister...On the way!
I still post here relatively often, though I am on FB more since it's much easier on my phone!
We spent an amazing 16 days in Italy this summer, where DD learned how to say Ciao! She's talking more and more every day, and we're so excited to watch her learn and change. She'll be 19 months old on Friday, and at her last appt (2 weeks ago), she was 24lbs, 33in tall.
I'm going to try to attach a pic from our trip .. also a perfect mommy & me photo

Hi girls! Life is complete chaos and excitement over here.
Logan is 4 1/2 and recently started a new preschool as well as soccer and is doing really well. He is hitting a very independent stage but also wants to be mommy's baby, so that is challenging. He is learning to read and I am amazed at how much he learns everyday. Kid is too smart for his own good He cracks me up daily with the things he says. Today I asked him to get ready for soccer and he said "how about you dress me while I play, sound like a deal mom?!" I could go on and on with the Logan quotes!
Kellen is turning into quite the little devil! He is so sweet and loves to give hugs and kisses, but if you turn your back on him he is getting into some type of mischief! He is talking so much, right now his favorite thing to say is "I go outside!" He also loves to say "No GOGO!" (he calls Logan GOGO.) They fight like cats and dogs one minute and are snuggling and giving kisses the next. Craziness!
I am finishing my paperwork to start subbing a few times a month, I have been a SAHM since Logan was born 4 1/2 years ago so this is big for me. I am not looking forward to leaving my babies but I know it will be good for me.
Below is a picture of the boys at a Giants game a few weeks ago My little blondies!
Dylan just turned 18 months and he's 34" and 30lbs. He's a big boy (98% and pedi says he'll be a minimum of 6'2"). He has, as of this week, been learning things super fast. He still doesn't talk (he does have his own language), but has probably 10 words that we understand. He is really into mimicking right now and can understand pretty much anything we tell him. He's a sensitive soul and doesn't like being reprimanded, it hurst his feelings so telling him no is sufficient and he hasn't started pushing his boundaries. He's super sweet and loves giving hugs to the animals right now. He's a comedian and the ladies at daycare are constanly taking pics/videos of him and tell me that he is the highlight of their day. They even stop by if their in our neighborhood to say hi to him!
I'm expecting Baby #2 in February so they'll be pretty much two years apart. We just found out it's a girl and I'm super excited. I think he's going to make a great big brother.
I started a cloth diapering business in February and it's been doing pretty good for only being open for 6 months. It helps feed my addiction to buy cloth diapers but then be able to resale them. I also love trying all the new products on Dylan.
Life is pretty darn good but I am looking forward to having my wine after #2 comes!
