Here we are on our way home today having some singing time. Keep in mind that I couldn't actually see them while doing the video, I just guessed their whereabouts. You can hear Baylor if you listen closely. He chimes in at the end twice. And then gets shy when I get him on the video. ENJOY!

The kids are loving the leaves and playing in them, much better then last year. They were raking the leaves, jumping in them, sliding in them and tossing them in the air!

Well, here we are at the end of October. It is so amazing how fast this summer and fall are flying. The kids are getting bigger and more mature every day. I love spending my days with Averie and Baylor and just watching how they interact with each other, solve problems and play so well. Averie is so busy leading and directing, meaning that she is busing coming up with ideas and games to play. She is very into taking care of Dee Dee her baby. She is so loving and considerate and like a little mommy. She is so interested in Berenstein Bear books when we go to Grandma's house. She actually has Grandma read them 3 or 4 times each. It is so cute. Now, Baylor, oh me oh my. You are so BIG. You play so much and so well with Averie. You push your trucks around all the time and carry blanket around too. You are rarely a Mama's boy...only when Averie wants me too...then you pour on the charm! You are almost popping out a third molar. And the fourth one is not far behind. They look so painful, yet you are not phased by it. You are sleeping very well. Going to bed at about 8:15pm and waking up at about 8am. You also nap from about 1:45-4pm. Averie on the other hand is in bed by 8:15pm but usually doesn't fall asleep until 9:15 or 9:30pm. And wakes at about 8:15am, sometimes later. Nap for Averie is from about 1:45-4pm, but sleep usually happens by about 2:15pm or so. Not bad for a 3 1/2 year old and 2 year old... and then the time change will, we will be rearranging the sleeping thing, that should be interesting, but typically you both have adjusted well in the past. So, I've rambled on and on now...I will have more pictures within the next few days. We just got back from a quick trip to visit Grandma Judy and Grandpa Bill for Grandpa Bill's B-day. I will post those soon!!

Baylor's cake! He requested a tractor cake...

Baylor not wanting to take pictures! Little stinker!

The Birthday boy and sissy!

He wasn't so sure about the singing...his little lip quivered and quivered...and then he tried to blow out the candle and forgot to cry, YEA!

And Happy Birthday Daddy too (we didn't forget)!!! We love you so much. You are the best Daddy! xoxoxo

My Baylor Boy,
I can't believe you're two. The time has flown by so fast. Baylor, I just love the little boy you've become. You are so sweet, soft spoken (most of the time), quirky and loving. You are so gentle to animals, your toys and most everything! But you do let us know when you don't like something! You can talk in sentences, and communicate very well. You can also jump, run, climb, ride your bike and do so many very active things. You seem to have excellent coordination! I also love the way you love your blanket. Just yesterday you started saying blanket, instead of "bank-ank." It was so cute! You have also started liking "blanket #2," when regular blanket isn't available, that is! You love cars, tractors, airplanes (pan-anes), trains and anything and everything that has wheels, moves and or flies. It is so great to hear you talk and count and answer questions. You are so incredibly smart. Your little voice just warms my heart. I also love it when you sing. It is so cute. You've been singing "Happy Birthday Blanket, AMEN" for the last couple days and it is so adorable. You love that blanket so much, it's your little baby! Just like you are my little baby boy. Baylor, I love you so much, keep growing exploring and learning... xoxoxox Your Mama
