First Snow Fall

So we finally had our first snow of the season on Saturday. Karson decided to take Thatcher out to play and build a snowman. Thatcher loved it. They were out there for about 2 hours just playing and having so much fun. So I decided to take Oaklee out to see the snow too. I dressed her in this cute snow suit my little sister bought her and we went and watched Thatcher and Daddy play. It was a beautiful day our street looked like winter wonderland because it is tree lined and they were all covered in snow :)!!!!

For Halloween we went to our wards Trunk or Treat it was lots of fun. Thatcher was a caterpillar and Oaklee was a butterfly. I made Thatchs costume, it was the first time I have made a costume and I thought that it turned out pretty cute. He didn't like the hat part of it but he seemed to have fun with the rest. I can't believe that October is already over I'm excited for the Holiday season to start.

Well it is already half way through October where does the time go? I thought that I would post what we have been up to lately there is going to be no photos due to the fact that we lost the battery charger for our camera, but one is on the way and I will post some updated pictures of everyone.

Thatcher is now 21 months he is just about 30 lbs and 34 inches. He is talking like crazy its to cute, some of my favorites are when we are getting ready to leave the house I will finish putting on his shoes and he will jump up and say ready, go. Another one is when he is eating he will say good, yummy. Yesterday for the first time we got him to catch a ball all by himself then he was doing it all night long. He is a quick learner :)!!!!

Oaklee is now 4 months she weighs 12.1 lbs and I cant remember how long she is, but she is getting bigger :)!!! She is now smiling like crazy, cooing. grabbing toys hanging above her and very close to rolling over. She is very cute and she loves her big brother she will watch him play all the time :)!!!! As for me I have just been taking care of my two beautiful babies and enjoying the fall weather. I have decided that fall is my favorite time of year in Chicago. The street here are basically all tree lined so when the leaves change and start to fall it is just gorgeous.

I wish I had a camera so I could take some pictures of the kids in the leaves, but hopefully my charger gets here before the leaves turn all gross.

Karson has just been mostly working, but he only has 8 months left and he will be done with residency. We are all way excited to be heading back to Idaho but it will be bitter sweet, Chicago has been so much fun and we will really miss all the great new friends that we have made here :)!!!!!!!!! Hopefully I will be able to post pictures sometime this week.

Mom Moments

So today I had one of those moments that you are so irritated when it happens but after its all over it is a really funny story. I was giving Thatcher a bath cause he loves baths and he wanted to take one. I was in the other room getting something when I hear him start to cry so I run in and he is trying to get out of the bath and hes saying yucky.

So I walk up to the bath and it is full of poop water. Yes he pooped and it was all over the place. So I pulled him out and he ran off and I started to try and clean it up, then Thatcher comes back in the bathroom and he points out the door and he says yucky. So I go out to the living room and he has pooped on the floor, so first I put his diaper on and continue to clean and sanitize the floor and the tub. When I'm all done I get Thatcher and I put him back in the tub so I can get him all cleaned up.

Once hes clean I just start draining the water but hes still in the tub playing so I'm sitting next to the bath and the next thing I hear is "Yucky!" Yes once again he pooped in the clean tub. So I once again cleaned and sanitized the tub. After it was all done I just looked at my cute little boy and laughed.

Thatcher and Oaklee

Its crazy how fast your little ones grow up. Thatcher is now 18 months he is getting so big. He is 28lbs and 34 inches long. He keeps learning new things all the time, like yesterday at church we were sitting in sacrament and he threw his toy onto the bench in front of us and he looks at Karson and says "where did it go" it was so cute. He is always saying new words and he can understand so much better it makes life a little easier :)!!!! He loves Oaklee, he is always giving her kisses and making sure that shes ok. He is always so much fun and he always has so much energy!!! Oaklee is 6 weeks now she weighed 9lbs 11oz at her 1 month appointment, she is already getting chunky. She is a sweet little girl and just so much fun to have around.
