Evelyn LOVES music and LOVES to dance.... I captured a little excerpt from when we were listening to some music yesterday. Don't be jealous of her moves... I taught her everything she knows! ;-)
And as I was uploading this video I found another one from August as she was watching this Disney Princess Video she loves...hahaha

This week Forest took a week of vacation and it has been awesome having him home! We planned on doing a handful of fun, local things and just doing some projects around the house. Not a glamorous vacation, but a vacation nonetheless :-) On Tuesday afternoon it was nice and sunny so we went to a place to get some pumpkins. It was a fun time, Evelyn really enjoyed it. I really enjoyed it too...until...as we were walking back to the car I attempted to put my camera into my jacket pocket while holding Evelyn and I dropped it..and BROKE THE SCREEN! Doh! I am so mad at myself. Forest told me he was already planning on getting me a new camera for Christmas- so that is good. But I am camera-less for 2 months. Sad! Ok,I don't want to talk about it anymore, I might start crying. haha :P We also then went to the zoo yesterday, it was gorgeous out and we had a ton of fun. Evelyn looooooooves to zoo! But I don't have any pictures -__- ha!
first thing we do--try to pick up a giant pumpkin..and you may gather as you look at the rest of the pictures, she did this quite frequently.
When I tell her to smile she ALWAYS says "Cheeeeeeeeeeeeeeese"- hence this face.
I can only capture a smile if it's candid!

Hunter is 10 weeks old today!
-He is 12 lbs 8 oz, 22.5 inches long
-He can hold his head up very well on his belly.
-He gives HUGE smiles and coos every time big sister gets in his face trying to make him laugh.
-He just went through a growth spurt and wanted to eat all the time, but we are back on track now & mommy and baby are happy :-)
-He is definitely mommy's boy...he melts my heart!
(I do realize most of you don't necessarily care about these regular updates on my kiddos... hehe :P but I think for me it will be fun to look back on! Hope you enjoy, too, though!)

Just though I would share several photos from an ordinary morning in our house :-)
Folding laundry...Ev's job is to pick out all of the socks and make a "sock pile!"
(which she loves to say)
Ev loves playing with her baby dolls.
She always wants me to "wapperup!" (wrap her up) and swaddle her in her blanky :)
Whenever she puts her baby in the stoller she usually informs me of where they are going. Today it was the doctor's office for a sticker! ha!
Now if I could only get this silly girl to look at me!
Why do I feel like there will be many more photos like this to come? Ev cracking up and being silly & Hunter wondering how he ended up with such a crazy big sister.
Hope you enjoyed a glimpse into an ordinary day of ours...the days I have come to love the most!

Two weekends ago, my mom and I took the kids to an apple orchard, and it was great! (Though we missed you, Amy & kiddos!) Evelyn loved it. She LOVES pumpkins...she was so excited just to see them and try to pick them all up, lol. We enjoyed apple cider, apple fritters, picking apples and other fun stuff. What a fun fall activity! Here are some pics....
((This is my first month participating in the 10 on 10 project with a handful of friends each posting 10 pictures on the 10th of every month..... Each person participating links up to another person, and eventually forming a circle of all of our posts!! Head on over to Jenn's blog to check her's out! :-)

My sweet boy is 8 weeks old today! Again, I cannot believe how quickly time is going... he is getting so big! Things have been going very well. I think he may the happiest baby, ever. He is constantly smiling, basically only cries when he is hungry, and is just an all-around chill dude. He's very laid back and content... and a little snuggle bug--which I love!! :) It is funny, when he wakes up in the morning he fusses to let us know, but as soon as he sees my face he immediately stops and gives a huge smile. Talk about melting your heart! I love his little personality and can't wait to see more of it as he gets older! He is sleeping very well, only waking once at night time (which is 8pm-7ish am) and will sleep his first stretch at night anywhere from 7-9 hours. Obviously some nights are exceptions and he will wake twice, but I am very pleased with that, and boy does it feel good to get some sleep ;-) I love this little guy!
Evelyn at his age...kind of fun to compare!
