I feel like it's been forever since I updated...I guess it kind of has been. The last month has been crazy and still is crazy, but I thought I'd jump on real fast and give a quick update.

In Dylan's leg news...he got fitted last Friday for leg #3!! NUMBER THREE!! That's three legs in less than a year. He clearly had a crazy growth spurt since he got his second leg because three months after getting it, it's now not fitting quite right. He's thinning out a bit, so his leg is on the loose side, as well as he's gotten taller some more so he's growing out of the height of this leg as well. Crazy kid needs to stop growing so fast! Clothes and legs aren't cheap. ha! He tries on the test leg this week, so I'm guessing he'll get his official new leg next week sometime (or the next considering next week is Thanksgiving).

Speaking of next week and why our lives have and continues to be so crazy...we are moving!! We bought a house and we move in the beginning of next week (just in time to have a Thanksgiving feast at our new place!). We are SO excited!! No more mad neighbors banging on the ceiling when our kids are just being kids. Woo hoo!! No more carrying lots of bags of groceries, plus a toddler, while trying to convince another toddler to walk up the stairs at a pace faster than a snail...oh and add the pregnant belly that is growing at astronomical rates...up three flights of stairs!! Woo hoo!! We will have a backyard for the kids to play in!! And a garage to park our cars in!! And the boys are super excited about a basement (not sure why...but they think that is super cool!)!! When we first found out it was finally going to happen, Kaden kept asking EVERY single morning if that was the day we were going to move into our new house so we started a countdown...and there are only a few links left of the countdown chain. We do a happy dance every morning when we get to rip a link off! So we have been busy busy with getting house stuff in order and packing and packing and normal life and doctors appointments and packing. But we can't wait!

Packing is fun! (right??...still trying to convince myself of that) Lots of boxes to play in...
...and discoveries of old treasures that you forgot existed like this gem that Kaden so excitedly modeled for us! Fun times!!

In normal day to day life, Kaden is going to Preschool this year and I have loved and treasured the one on one time I get to spend with Dylan. The other day we went and got some smoothies together. Dylan was quite the ladies man with all the workers. He looked so cute sipping his little mini smoothie. I couldn't stop smiling...or taking pictures. I love my boys! They make me SO happy!

And last but not least...we got some family pictures taken. Figured with the new baby coming it was time to get some professional family pictures taken of our current dynamic (the last ones we got I was pregnant with Dylan...we're not so good at this whole taking regular professional family pictures thing). :) They turned out fantastic! Thought I'd share just a few.

LOVE LOVE LOVE these boys!! I'm one lucky lady!

  5. Para mi es impresionante ver que siempre estáis con una sonrisa en los alegro muchísimo de que al final cambiéis a una nueva casa.....ya no más vecinos molestos por las carreras de tus hijos, pero sobretodo, por lo que explicas....cada vez es más difícil, subir escaleras cargado de bolsas....y de niños....
    Veo que estás llevando un buen imagino que no tendrás descanso alguno, pero es muy reconfortable ver esa sonrisa y esa alegría que siempre tenéis.....
    La foto con la peluca es muy divertida, me imagino que el cambio de casa es toda una aventura para tus hijos.
    Las fotos familiares....estupendas.....muy, muy bonitas.....ya mismo tendrás que cambiarlas de nuevo con el aumento de familia......
    Un abrazo bien fuerte para los encanta leer tus entradas de blog...
    For me it is striking to see that you are always with a smile ..... I am very happy that at the end you go to a new home ..... no more annoyed neighbors by racing your children, but most because of the difficulty climbing stairs loaded with bags .... and children ....
    I see you're having a good pregnancy .... I guess that you will not rest, but it is very comforting to see that smile and the joy that you always have .....
    The photo with the wig is very funny, I imagine that moving home is an adventure for your children.
    Family photos .... great ..... very very nice ..... and have to change it again with increasing family ......
    A very strong hug for four ... I love reading your blog posts ...
