Just a couple of pumpkins enjoying the sun.
So things have gotten busy. The holidays generally do that, but I try hard to stay ahead of the game. This is more of a convergence of the time of year we have all of our annual and bi-annual doctor and dentist appointment, parent-teacher conferences, I took on some extra freelancing work, daylight savings happened, etc. But we have certainly still made some time for fun this fall season, even if it's just visiting a new park or hanging out with friends.

Levi's been somehow more trying and more sweet as time goes on. He is so proud to help with chores and to show that he's a good listener. But we've had some regression in potty training over the past two weeks without any reason we can figure out, and he's still very hit or miss with being disrespectful.

Theo, however, is (finally?) blossoming into his own little person, without having to be connected to mommy's hip. He chats to himself (he's having a conversation with his Thomas the Tank Engine sippy cup right now), he's had an explosion of using sign language and starting to say several words, of which his favorites are "bubbles" and "touchdown." He can tell you what a few different animals say - horses, sheep, goats, dogs, and pigs.

And now for the photo extravaganza!

Cheers! (one of Theo's favorite games)

Whoa... Science.

Unintentional choreography!

As cute as he is, Theo is surprisingly un-photogenic. So we settle for silly faces instead.

Two of a kind.

A rare Theo smile-at-the-camera moment is obviously accompanied by Levi blinking.

  1. Aahh! Jesse and I loved looking through these photos so much! The boys have changed a lot since we departed mid-summer, and I especially love seeing their personalities in the pictures. Plus...that picture of Theo getting his hair cut? I swear it could be a pic of little Timmy from nearly 30 years ago! Thanks so much for the great post. :)
