October in Florida

Fall2012 021

Oh my little people…I love you so much. These kids…I can’t believe they are mine sometimes.  It’s hard to fathom that we created a family in 4 years.  It seems like just the other day Brad was holding their sweet little warm cheeks right after birth next to me for their first momma kiss, and now they are catching their first frogs….

Jack caught his first frog in October :) And then he started to hop away, and we almost saw tears! Brad quickly explained how he wouldn’t be able to stay forever because they don’t have “houses” like us and they have to go searching for food & water.  Jack listened intently and the next morning when Mr. Frog was gone Jack said, “It’s okay Maddy he had to go find some food!” And in Madeline’s sweet little voice she said, “Oh…” It melted my heart…oh the life lessons of preschoolers!

Madeline Grace…loves Jack.  She does everything he does, and so far he’s a good sport having his little sister always in tow!

Darth Vadar, a princess & one sweet baby!

Halloween was so much fun this year! My kids got so much candy…and truthfully I just let them eat as much as they wanted when they wanted…picking my battles & just having fun is my new motto lately.  Who cares if on Halloween night and a few days after they eat a ton of candy…YOLO!! (mom, nana & pop pop this means…you only live once!)

Baby Brennan…oh my! My little love.  My last little love btw…breaks my heart that there will be no more little babies in my life, but I know the right decision was made.  Brennan…still the happy go with the flow little guy that he’s always been who is CRAWLING now and pulling up and sitting up and clapping and just getting too big too fast!

It was so odd to me when Jack came up with his Star Wars fascination.  Honestly I didn’t know much about Star Wars (ask me now…I’m an expert ;) He wanted to be Darth Vader…and he took his role very seriously. Jack is 4 1/2 now, in love with building things, better than me at LEGO Batman on the PS3, doing great in school, & becoming such a sweet understanding patient little man!

My precious princess! Such a sweetie…she’s 2 1/2, potty trained, a snuggle bug with some attitude on occasion, still obsessed with babies & my little love!
