Loving the Exersaucer

It happens too fast. 
All of a sudden that little baby who prefers my arms over anything else begins to enjoy playing on his own.
While I'm so proud...the progress is painful to watch.
It happens too fast.

Summer's End

We cannot close this season's blogging without at least mentioning the 
very activity that has kept these littles most occupied.  :)

Soaking up the last...

...of this summer's sun.
We all had a great time at the local skate park. :)

Didn't Expect... see this from my kitchen window.

So I had to run outside and quickly capture this:

Little monkey!

Hannah's favorite word lately.

She somehow tacks into or onto every sentence, and uses it correctly.

Except for one thing.

She pronouces it like this:


And it's SO cute.

Happy birthday Miles! What a birthday marathon you enjoyed this year! 
You are one special, oh-so-loved little boy. 
Not mention...Lucky. 

And the quote to remember:
Before his special party, he'd been talking about it for days (weeks, months), detailing who was invited and who, well, wasn't.
As a joke, Daddy asked "So am I invited Miles?"
Miles: "Well I guess you can come since your brothers are gonna be there."
