Crazy Kiddos!

These two are really keeping us on our toes these days! What will we do with three????

Snuggling after their bath
Dress up by Lola - this girl is dressed up everyday from the time she wakes up until she goes to bed. Tonight I let her wear a crown and sparkly shoes that are too big to the store. Because I just didn't feel like fighting her! In this pic, Deacon's face is marked with red marker.
Lola made a "bank drive-thru" out of boxes. You will notice a makeshift cash register, hand sanitizer, and a bowl of change. Deacon is supposed to be "driving up" in the car but he didn't get it. He was looking at her like, "I just want to sit in this box and watch a cartoon, okay?"
Dressed up again.
They are hilarious and I enjoy every minute, even though I am exhausted by the end of the day!

A Letter to Santa

Anyone else thinking about Christmas? We are!

(The following was spoken by Lola, transcribed by Jessica.)

Dear Santa Claus,
Please bring me a toy car that's bigger than my pink Barbie car, but not bigger than my real car, like the ones at Wal-Mart. And then I want a big kid bicycle and a purple or pink kid chair with a foot-rest that is covered in pretty rainbows.
I want pretend baby food for my big fat baby doll. I also want more video games and a Leapster Portable.
I have been very good. I help my mom take care of my brother. I haven't done any hitting or punching. I have talked nice to my mom and dad. I try to clean up after myself.

The kids-and Dean have been all about the Toys R Us catalog the last week. Christmas can't be very far away!

Guess Who.......

Is 19 months old today?

Deacon is!

Since we were sick from mid-September until mid-October, his 18-month well check was a little late. He is growing and developing very well. He weighs 27 pounds and was 80th percentile for height. He says over 30 words, some of which are "ball" "vroom-vroom" "mama" "dada" "lala" "swing" "juice" etc........ He can point to many of his body parts, including tummy, head, eyes, ears, nose, teeth, tongue, etc. He is facinated with transportation. He loves to go outside and touch Dean's car. If he is upset we can put car racing on the TV or computer and he immediately perks up and says "VROOM VROOOOOM!!!" Two of his favorite words the last month have become "no" and "mine," so two's here we come! Occasionally he will hit or bite, then turn around and give kisses to the person he just hurt. It's hilarious. He hates for his feet to be cold and will ask for socks or "ockhhhssss." He eats ALL THE TIME. This week he figured out that he could drag the step-stool to the pantry and look for what he wants. He is very attached to his sister and they play well together most of the time.

We love you Deacon!
