Happy Birthday!!!



Happy Birthday to my now TWO-year old twins! Their birthday was on Friday, but we were in sunny Penfield, NY for Thanksgiving which gave me no time to post! I'll also follow this post up with some pictures of our visit with family.

My little nuggets are no longer babies...they are definitely toddlers, little people if you will. When I was pregnant with them, I remember the strong desire to at least make it until Thanksgiving, because that would only be a month early. It was my mental goal to hold on until then to give them the best possible chance. I like to think that we made it -- albeit 2 hours shy. And they did have a great start...just 2+ weeks in the NICU at Beth Israel in Boston without any need for respiratory aid.

And now Colin knows his ABC's and how to count to 10?!? He's two?!? And Ava can build block castles to the sky (until Colin comes and knocks them down of course!)













And why is it that my kids don't like CAKE?!?! As you can see below, we were thankful that someone did -- Hi cousin Katie!!!

Fall Photo Shoot



Just a few more fall photos! Colin has since had his hair cut -- boy, did he need it! If only I had 20 hands, it would be easy to get 2 toddlers to sit still, look at the camera AND smile for a picture. My advice is to put them on something -- a bench, a rock, just something that let's their feet dangle giving you a millisecond to snap your shot!

More Leaves!

One last weekend of leaf removal... although these two love it so much they'd like to do it every day!

















And here's a fantastic video of Daddy pelting Mommy and Colin with leaves:

Toy pile



In Ava's spare time, she brings Daddy her toys one by one. When he is completely covered, she climbs up to admire her work.

Leaf Pile



Enjoying our leaf piles and making the most of the last days of fall before cold and snowy winter comes...
