Happy Halloween! I put you two in the only orange shirts I could find! Grace, you wore one of Joshua's shirts that he grew out of. So, it was big on you but you didn't seem to mind. ;-)
Grace, you woke up at 4:40am. Daddy changed you and then I nursed you. I also got a quick pump in this morning to build up your mommy milk for wednesday. You also ate an entire container of a chicken and veggie mixture! Whoa little lady! :-)
Joshua, you did well for Kim today during speech therapy. You made your 'yummy' noise of 'mmmm' one time and Kim was so excited! We have to keep practicing at home. We did the PECS program more and you identified pictures in a book with 93% accuracy. Way to go little man!
You two napped once we were home. Afterward, I changed you two into new diapers. Joshua, you ate one and a quarter string cheeses and Grace, you ate an entire mixture of apples, strawberries, and bananas!
After you all ate, you two helped me sweep and vacuum the kitchen. Then, we vacuumed the living room. :-)
We had fun this afternoon .... we baked some chocolate chip cookies! Woo hoo! The kitchen smelled nice once we were done!
It rained this afternoon and evening. The temperature also dipped, so we didn't go out for 'trick or treating' .... in fact, we didn't even put our lights on to give out candy. We didn't even buy any. We still had one person ring our doorbell while we were eating dinner. :-)
Our contractor, Kenneth, called me late this afternoon. He and his crew are coming over tomorrow to open up that wall between the living room and the study! Woo hoo! After dinner, daddy helped us move all the furntire out and take down the pictures on the wall. The house will look nice once that's open. You two will have so much room to play in. Then, we'll have the carpets taken out and new floors placed. The carpet needs to be ripped out since the cat peed everywhere! Yuck!
Joshua, you didn't have a great dinner. You tried different things by putting them in your mouth .... eggs, veggies .... but then you spit them out. Ugh! Grace, you ate almost an entire container of fruit and rice cereal .... you had almost 3 whole containers of solid food total .... 10.5 ounces! Wow!
This evening we all played. I weighed both of you. Grace, you're 16.5 pounds and Joshua, you're 24 pounds! Whoa! You're getting heavy little man! ;-) Oh, I cut Grace's nails this evening because they were so sharp. She was pimching me each time I nursed her. :-P
I hope the weather is better tomorrow!
Sleep tight little ones!
I love you both!
