9 months and birthday fun

So Dylan and Adalyn both had a MD checkup this month - a 4 year and a 9 month. Poor Dylan had to get 4 shots! 😢  He turned 4 on December 1st and next school year he will be going to preschool! One of those happy but sad moments. I am happy my little boy is growing up but it's happening way to fast! I love listening to him and his daddy read at night. He has the whole Dr. Seuss ABC book memorized! 😄 I also love watching him play and interact with his sissy. Addy is 17lbs now and is pulling up on everything. I definitely think she will be walking soon! She says dada baba bye bye and bubba. I occasionally hear mama but it's rare. Which is crazy since she always wants me! 😜 Here are some pics of Dylan's birthday, birthday party, and live nativity. Also a pic from Thanksgiving when Dylan finally rode Pawpaw Al's Harley. And of course baby girl at 9 months!

7 months

So Addy turned 7 months on October 18th and will soon be 8 months! She is getting soooo big. She weighs 14lbs now and is super active! She never stays still!
For Halloween we had a Fall Fest at the church for all the kids. Dylan insisted on being a lion and Addy was a kitty! I love my lil' felines! Addy was dedicated to the Lord this Sunday past. November 3, 2013. Kevin and I made a commitment before the Lord to submit her to His will and to raise her according to His Word and His ways.
We went to the Insectarium on Tuesday. I didn't think it was going to be all that great but it was pretty fun! My favorite was the Butterfly Garden! Dylan is growing up way to fast too. In a month he will be 4! He is an awesome big brother. Always playing with his babygirl/sissy/Addy. Next school year he will be in preschool. Happy but sad . . .  I started working on him with writing his ABCs and he is doing awesome!

11 year anniversary

Today is the 12 year anniversary of the September 11th attacks.  It is a date that will forever be etched in the mind of every American. Many lost their lives on that fateful day. 
Today is also the 11 year anniversary of my brother's death. Yes, it still feels like yesterday that he was taken away from us but time has a way of lessoning the pain. He is gone but his memory lives on. I only hope his death was not in vain.  It saddens me when I see family and friends continue to live that lifestyle. I am almost positive that if Lance was alive today he would not be in prison or a rehab or bound by drugs, alcohol, and gangs. He would be with his 2 sons living for God. All of you who think you knew Lance may laugh and think oh yeah right but you weren't there the last few weeks of his life. He spent a few nights at our house. We swam, hung out, had fun that didn't involve getting wasted and not remembering what happened the next morning. He came to church with us too.

5 months

Addy made 5 months on the 18th. I am a month behind :(  Last month she had a check-up and weighed in at 12lbs! She is rolling over like crazy too. I had her on the living room rug, walked out for a second and when I came back in she was across the room! My little holy roller! lol Her and Dylan got into their first little fight too. It was funny. She was playing in her bouncer and he kept aggravating her. She pulled her toy back and it hit him in the head. He came and told on her and when he went back he hit her (I'm assuming lightly since she didn't cry) and said "Now take that!". Kevin and I couldn't help but laugh. He loves his sister though. "Put baby girl by me" is what he always says.
