3 lbs.

The subject of this post is the weight differential between Sasha and Sophia. Our sweet Sasha-ball weighs 26 pounds, and the little peanut Sophia is only 29 pounds. I wondered why I felt so "balanced" while carrying them at the same time...

Sophia should take caution because I'm afraid Sash is going to start holding her own. She is not chubby or soft...rather....she is built a bit like Brian Urlacher. We'll be posting their respective times for a 40 yd dash soon, so keep an eye out for that.

Family Feast

Happy Thanksgiving to you all! For the first time ever, we spent the holiday by traveling, no visitors. Sophia helped me put up and decorate our Christmas tree today, and she was so excited. "Mama, it is BEAUTIFUL!" I loved seeing her face light up after adding each ornament. When Sasha saw it, she said "WOOOOOOOOOOOOW!" These girls are really growing up. As much as we missed seeing our families, we managed to have a lot of fun today!

Practicing for #3

We had a cute little visitor staying with us last week...and the girls had a great time. Mostly because we broke out all of the baby gear -- who knew an infant carseat could provide hours of entertainment for a toddler and preschooler?! Little Jackson is soooooooo cute, and we loved having him here. I have a feeling Sasha is going to have a tough time when her little brother or sister arrives in a few short months. Every time I was holding or snuggling Jack, she would cry and make it clear she wanted me to put him down NOW. Funny at the time...won't be so funny in March.

THANKS FOR VISITING, JACK! Tell your mohawk 'hi'. Oh yeah, Missy was here, too....forgot.

Trick or Treat 2007

This is a bit late, but we hope you enjoy seeing our little goblins all decked out!!! (by the way, we didn't buy them ALL of those costumes...most of them are from the dress-up bin in the toy room).

This one is for you, Edie

After much harrassing from a certain sister of mine, I was finally able to post our pictures from the rest of October. You'll be happy that I cut down the batch from 160 to 57...however, I did not have it in me to do any fun captions this time. They are boring, straightforward and concise. Hopefully we'll have a new video up for you soon, too.

We had a great ultrasound this morning, and the baby looks good! Michael and I had to rush out of the appointment to make sure we could pick up Sophia from school on time, so we didn't have a chance to get a picture....but this might help you get a visual. Think: Skeletor with all of the grace of the ballerinas in Swan Lake. I kid...the baby is just as beautiful as our other two babies, and we are VERY excited to meet him...or her......

Happy November - stay warm!
