Here's two pics, one of Victor and one of Eve in their new outfits from Gran. Victor actually has 3, but he peed thru his diaper in two of the outfits in the same day, and the 3rd one he has on here, I remembered to take a pic while he was sleeping. When he woke up, he had food all over it. :o)
Victor has really taken an interest into making sounds. I've had a pretty nasty cough these last few days, and whenever I cough, he makes a few pretend coughs. I just tell him, "Cool it."
Gran sent Victor a touch-and-feel book. I read that to him last night, and on the polar bear, it has a nice, soft, fluffy fur. I would touch it and say, "Nice. Nice..." Victor would point his little finger, touch it and say "Eye, eye..." Well, you got one sound right! I know there was a sound at the end, but it wasn't an "s" sound, so I'm not sure how to write that. lol
He's getting better at saying "More," which right now is just "Mo!" There is no soft talking with any of my kids, especially the boys. I'll blame their dad, haha!
Ok, I have no idea what the name of the place actually was, but they sold pumpkins, so that's what I'm calling it :o) The kids had a blast! Auntie Sarah and Jeremy surprised us by being there, and then Uncle Scottie joined shortly after. Dirk keeps asking for "his boy" and Eve was disappointed "her girl", aka Kyrsten, wasn't there. But she some how got over it and had fun! lol
Cousin Jeremy, Dirk, Eve and G picking out pumpkins to paint later.
I will NOT carve pumpkins with Dirk,
that would just open a whole new can of worms
that I don't need to deal with right now.
Yes, that would be my 5-year-old standing above 4 feet tall!
Eve driving the orange tractor. I didn't get Dirk on any of the tractors bcuz he was having way too much fun with Jeremy running around picking up corn off the ground to feed the animals :o)
They had a PINK TRACTOR!
Do you have any idea how awesome that was for her!? :o)
Jeremy was really good at feeding the chickens from his fingers.
My kids got a little shy, wondering if the chicken
Victor has NOT liked Papa at all :o( When Papa would just walk past him while he was playing on the floor, he would have this scream come out of him like he was getting hurt! But, after Papa fed him some food and played peek-a-boo, all was good! Now they are buddies. Well, we'll see if they still are today, but as of last night they were. We should not take 3 months to come back and see them again. I wish I could get Ryan to move closer, I miss being able to see our family. And I LOVE having the kids be around them! Tomorrow the kids will hopefully get to see Uncle Scott and Auntie Sarah, and maybe Jeremy and Kyrsten. On Saturday Uncle Matt, Auntie Megan and Brooklynn will be coming over! The kids are so excited! Dirk keeps asking for "my boy" and Evie has been wondering where "her girl" is. AKA, Jeremy and Kyrsten :o) So cute. And they haven't played with Brooke since Fun Fest! It's been too long!
So last night, Ryan and I were upstairs putting the kids to bed and Victor was on our main level playing with toys. Well, so we thought. Next thing I hear is this squealing in the hallway. Victor was working on the 3rd step! No leaving him ANYWHERE any more :o( Little stinker. Man that kid is mobile! He's also walking around furniture and loves to "walk" if you hold both of his hands, which is a favorite thing of Dirk's. Dirk and Victor are so cute together - they both LOVE being in each other's company, as long as Dirk isn't taking off his clothes to tickle him :o) I haven't gotten it thru his head he doesn't need to strip the baby down in order to tickle him! lol
We're heading to G and Papa's house tomorrow! Mom hasn't seen the kids in 3 months! Dad and Matt swung down on their Harley's a few weeks ago. So Mom is in need of a grandbabies fix! And I need some time away. Stay tuned for a few pics I'm sure!
Well, Dirk has had a "rough" few days in Kindergarten :o( But today, he got a praise report! He did very well and I'm so excited for him! He's such a busy body that he can get into a little mischief here and there. So, we've done a few changes in how we approach him and I hope it continues to work! His teacher has caught on to how he needs to be praised, so I hope he continues to be a little angel at school :o) He LOVES LOVES LOVES to color, so he gets a new coloring sheet from his teacher after a good day. When Mrs. M told him this today, he got so excited! He was seriously jumping up and down. :o) What a cute kid! I think I'm going to go out and get some new crayons/pens/pencils for him to choose from after a fantastic day. Oh! I'm so happy he is settling into a routine at school.
