So we took Lydia and Seth trick or treating with our friends Adam and Tara. She was a butterfly and Seth was a dinosaur. So I put Seth in the car to head over to Tara's house and then I put Lydia in and she looked over him and said FROG. She mistook her baby brother dinosaur for a FROG. But as the evening when on every one kept saying look at the cute frog. Well I don't have a picture of Seth with his outfit yet, but I do have one of Lydia.

Sister and Brother

This is what I found Lydia doing with Seth this morning when I ran to the bathroom.

Funny Conversation

Yesterday, Lydia was having a very pitiful day and I was trying to make her realize what she was doing and I finally I said Lydia, do you need a time out on your bed for your attitude and she said YESSSSSSSSSSS!! So funny!

I sigh of happiness

Well today makes the last day I will spend here in North Carolina with Melinda. She is adjusting well to being a mom. You can definitely see the mommy sparkle in her eye. I have however, missed Joel and Lydia while I have been here and I will be happy to be reunited with them tomorrow morning. Although, very sad to leave here with out my sister and my great new little niece. Sometimes it makes me overwhelmingly sad to not be close to any of my family and oh how my heart aches to be near them, but in this I also know that Gods will and timing is perfect. It makes my time with them oh so sweet. I wish sometimes that the time in between seeing them was shorter, but then I think maybe I wouldn't be so grateful to see them and just take it for granted. But I am sighing in happiness because God has brought into this world another sweet healthy baby to some very awesome parents. So to you Steve and Melinda I say Congratulations on a beautiful, precious baby girl, and I am very sad that it will seem like forever, until I see you and her again. Thank you for the opportunity I have had to meet Chloe and for serving you and welcoming your new baby girl into your home. I can't wait till I see you again soon, and hope that Chloe will continually grow beautiful and big.

9 weeks

It is amazing how quick time has flown by. I haven't been on here in a while to post on our lives. SO here is a quick update. Seth still is rolling over, the doctor told us that he was probably doing it on accident, but it seems to me that he is doing it on purpose. He is a lot bigger than Lydia ever was at this age. He is smiling a lot now and starting to coo at us as well. I feel like I have finally adjusted to life with 2 kids. Lydia continues to be an awesome joy to me. She is saying so much more now. She tries very hard to do stuff herself and when she does she says "I got it." She also has begun to answer her own question. For instance She says to me mommy watch George and then she says SURE. So funny. We also had our pictures taken by our very good friend Lauren and when i get them I will post some pictures. In other news my sister, Melinda had her baby. Congrats to you guys. We love you!!
