We had a great weekend in regards to sports.  The Rangers are in the World Series for the first time ever.  Texas A&M won, texas lost, TCU won, and OU lost.  Whoop!!  But we really didn't get to enjoy it too much.  I spent most of Friday and Saturday in bed with what felt like the flu.  Today it was Toby's turn.  UGH!  I hope we all start feeling better soon.  Luckily the kids haven't caught it (fingers crossed that they won't), and they have had fun playing all weekend.  Here are some of our pictures from the past few months of them playing.

When you are not looking

When you are not looking your babies start growing up too fast.  One minute I had this tiny baby boy who was completely dependent upon me for everything.  Now I have this little man.  He calls me mom instead of mommy, wants to wear "big boy clothes" like daddy (mainly belts and hats- he thinks they are for big boys), he know how to spell and read several words, and he has best friends.  He is no longer my little baby.  And then my little baby girl is growing too fast too.  She used to need me for everything, but now she can get what she wants, and she is eating big people food.  She is standing up and cruising around.  In just a few short months she will be 1.  Where has the time gone?  I want to freeze time and let them be little forever.  I want to savor every moment with my two miracles.   But time marches on, and my babies become a little less baby everyday.  I really realized this today after the photo session.  I was looking at a picture of Noah and he looks like a big boy.  I just couldn't get over it.  Here are some pics from today.

promises, promises

I keep promising myself that I am going to keep up with this, and then life gets in the way.  I am helping Toby's school with their yearbook, so that has kept me very busy.  Toby has circus going on right now which is insane.  He has barely been home since Thurs.  I am ready for this to be over!!  Noah has also started OT every Thurs.  so that has kept us even more busy.  But in between all of that, we have been having a good start to the school year.  Noah is quite the comedian now.  He is always telling me a joke, or making up a silly song to make me or Maddie laugh.  Maddie is in to everything.  She is crawling all around and loves to talk!!  Not that she says anything, but she thinks she is having a very important conversation!    Noah liked her a whole lot more, before she could get into his stuff.  Now he is not so sure about her!!  We are getting ready for Halloween.  Noah is going to be Curious George (and Toby is going to be the man in the yellow hat).  And Maddie is going to be a ladybug.  Their costumes are so cute.  My mom made both of them.  I can't wait to have their pictures made this week.  That is all from here for now.  I will post some pics when I get them, but right now I hear a little one moving all around in my bed, so I better go see what she is up to!
