Feeling better

We all felt more than stir crazy yesterday being stuck inside for all the bad weather. I had 2 cranky boys that eventually settled down for a brief moment in the afternoon so I could snap a few pics. William's fever finally broke early this morning and we were able to make Bear Cub Club at the discovery center for playtime. They're both down for their afternoon naps at the same time today (Praise God) because I'm feeling pretty run down again. Having all 3 of my boys sick at the same time has been a challenge I don't ever want to experience again.

William has such good head control now...may start rice cereal soon

Full body shot...he's growing so fast!!

Always has a hold of my hand or finger. This one is for sure a mama's boy :)

Nolan always trying to share his juice!

Always loving on his brother :) Hope he always will.

Lazy Morning & Bumbo

Looks like it's going to be a lazy day as we hang out through this Tropical Storm Ida watching the weather. It's been a very early morning for us. William woke up with a fever and runny nose, and Nolan is still uncomfortable with his ear infection refusing to take his antibiotic (doesn't like how they flavored it). So looks like we're going to unfortunately spend the day inside, unless we make a trip back to the doctor's office!

Where did October go?

For REAL...we have not stopped. Seems like each week has been busier than the last and we have been on the road every weekend! Whew! So glad it's November, the cooler weather is here and the holidays are just around the corner. Our biggest news....drum roll please!!!!....we are moving out of this apartment and into a 2600 sq. ft. rental home. Praise God!! It's going to seem like a mansion compared to this 1400 sq. ft. apt we've somehow managed to live in the last 8 months with our growing family. We are so ready to settle into a home and have chosen to rent instead of buying because we still have not sold our home in Birmingham. It will be 1 year this December that it's been on the market and no decent offers. I think people looking to buy a home right now really think you will practically give your home to them. We are already going to lose a significant amount of money on the house, but are really ready to move forward and let it be a blessing to another family.

The boys are great. Nolan has become a little chatter box, really starting to talk in better sentences and communicating a lot better. He still gets pretty whiny (I think it's a terrible two's thing) and we are really having to crack down on the discipline and time-outs. It works! William is 3 months and is already teething! Nolan didn't start this till 5 months, so we're a little surprised. He recently found his giggle (Nolan made him giggle so hard the other day for the 1st time) and coos all the time! He makes the sweetest sounds ever and makes me smile with so much joy everyday!

To catch you up on the last few weeks, here's a few photos:
