It's raining, it's pouring...

At 4:13am this morning, I hear the pitter patter of little feet, followed by a certain 4 year old busting into our room.  
Conversation went something like this:

"Mommy, there's a strange sound in my room!"  
Ummm, yea Lily, that's rain.  
"Rain? I love rain!  Can I go outside and play in the rain?!?!?"
Uhhhh, no.  It's the middle of the night and cold outside.  Go back to bed!
{followed by crying and a temper tantrum}
{followed by Mommy having a cup of coffee before her early morning workout, ugh}


{payback for these early morning wake up calls will be so fun when she's a teenager...counting down the years}

15 months

November 10, 2013

~You wear 12-18 months clothing, size 4 shoes, and size 4 diapers.  You have four and a half teeth.
~You go to bed around 7pm and sleep 12+ hours.  You continue to love your 'night night' and suck on two fingers.
~You are the sweetest, happiest boy and are so quick to smile.  You are such a lover and give huge hugs and kisses by choice and on command. 
~You hair is getting long but I can not bring myself to cut it. It blows in the breeze.  :)

 ~You stand unassisted and have taken a few unsupportive steps.  Just this week, you seem interested in learning to walk.  You prefer me to carry you or whine until Lily brings you a toy.  Typical, lazy male...ha! 
 ~Balls.  Obsessed.  Seriously.  Enough said.
~You also love cars, trucks, bikes, etc.  You make the sweetest "vroom vroom" noise as you push your vehicles around the house.  You love playing outside in the cul de sac and try so hard to keep up with the big kids.  Lily and our awesome neighbors are so patient and kind to you. 
~Your sister is your absolute favorite person.  You have very few words (dada, mama, thank you) but you can say both Lily and Sissy.  
~You bring our family so much joy.  We love you William Tommy!

We had a fun few days celebrating Halloween.
Lily really got into it, and had lots of ideas of activities we must do.
First off, making a jack-o-lantern.
ewww, gross!
after lots of practice, she chose this face
"ugh, Daddy, that is stinky!"
final product!
(she took a bath break while Daddy finished up)
We were thrilled to have the class pet over Halloween.
Cat in the Hat got himself into a little mischief.
While helping us bake pumpkin muffins, he climbed into our mixing bowl.  Silly Cat!

 Lily spent much of the morning creating a tiger mask to scare the Cat.
Finally, Daddy was home and it was time to trick-or-treat.
It's hard on a four year old having to wait all day long.  :)

Mema sent Lily and William a box of goodies last week...inside was a Ladybug Girl costume.
Lily was beyond thrilled, and immediately changed her costume idea.
(She originally wanted to be Cinderella, hence William is a mouse)

stop taking pics..I need CANDY now!
Lily had a blast trick-or-treating with neighbor friend Braeden and together they hit up every house in our neighborhood.
William lasted about two minutes before retiring to the stroller and cruising for the rest of the evening.

ran into the Whitson's - Kate, Lily, Braeden, William

 Mom and Dad joined in on the Halloween fun last weekend at an adult-only party.
Thristy...try a Roy Rogers or Shirley Temple!

A great 2013 Halloween!  Holidays are so much fun with these kiddos!
