I hope everyone had a wonderful halloween. We had a good time trick or treating this year with Keagan. She really is starting to enjoy stuff like that. We would walk her up to a house and she would turn and run because she thought they were going to take her pumpkin full of candy!! Once she figured out they were GIVING her candy, she would try to to go back to the same house for a second handout! My sister came and she was attached to her the whole time....didn't want anyone else holding her, walking her, or carrying her pumpkin. So, needless to say my sisters arms got a great workout! Thanks Auntie!! Also, my sister was able to bring her friends daughter, Hannah, and she was able to trick or treat with Farren. They had so much fun running around door to door!! Deakon was a little skeleton thanks to his Aunt Stephie...and bad mommy (spank me on the hand) didn't get any pics of him because he was snoozin the whole time!! We had a great time, hope everyone else did too!

My little guy is already almost 3 months old??? Where has the time even gone....gosh. He is getting bigger every day. We broke out the bumbo and he absolutely loves it. He loves to be in an upright position, so this allows that with mommy or daddy having to stand him up all the time. He loves standing on our bellies and just being up and able to see everything. We are getting lots of cooing and talking these days, and lots and lots of smiles! He has also started blowing bubbles! One of my favorite parts! For some reason, the last 3 nights, he is getting up every 2-3 hours, mommy can't wait for that to be over with! We may have to try some cereal soon!! He is such a little pleasure, we are so thankful to have him!

Bad mommy, I missed 10 weeks. I've have just been so damn busy. Seriously. But on to 11 weeks we go. I can't believe Deakon is almost 3 months old. It is really going by so fast. He is such a little angel and growing so fast. We are trying to go through two outfits a day because we have so many clothes that he has not yet worn and needs to before he grows out of them. He is starting to coo this week along with lots and lots of smiles. He really loves looking and smiling at his daddy. And loves getting his kisses from his sister. He has a little cough this week, so we are trying to get rid of that. Poor baby. =( But other than that, he is flourishing! Not to mention he is such a little cutie!!!

Since my poor babies have been sick, I thought I would give them a treat to lift their spirits! And whats better then some ice cream from the ice cream truck! I love that there is an ice cream truck that comes to our neighborhood! It brings back memories for me when I was little and my mom would let me and my sister get ice cream from the ice cream truck! I got Keagan a "Dora the Explorer" popsicle...they were out of Spongebob, and Farren a "Ninja Turtles" popsicle! They both loved them and it was alot cheaper then I thought it would be!!

This is past being due, but I wanted to get it up here. We have been so busy with everyone being sick, I'm am very behind. Keagan is already 21 months though!! Can you believe it?!?!?!?!? Where has the time gone??? I find it hard to believe that she will 2 years old in just a short time. Crazy Crazy. Anyway, she has been wonderful. She is like a little sponge right now, repeating lots of what we say. She has started putting words together and loves peek a boo. She says "Where are you?" And then "There you are!" It is the cutest thing ever. If you ask her what a duck said, she says "Quack, quack, quack!" And does a little dance while doing it. She has conquered getting in and out of the bathtub and will not have any help from anyone. She is very independent and DEMANDS to do things on her own. She absolutely refuses to wear shoes. We are making progress though, she will now let me at least try them on her. Just won't keep them on. She knows how to take her diaper off, thus, we have really been pushing the potty. She is doing really well, and loves getting stickers for going tee tee. She has worn panties a few times, and has lasted up to 3 hours without having an accident!! We are keeping her fingers crossed the continue to make progress. She is taking naps in her big girl bed and has slept in it a number times at night, but still likes the comfort of the crib. Again, progress. She still loves her bubba, and kisses him 20 times a day. She has figured out how to climb up into his bassinett and lay down in it by herself!! And she loves to get in or play with anything that is suppose to be for him. She has started eating at the table with us, no more high chair, and she absolutely loves it! I took her in last week when she was sick and she is 32 inches tall and 22 1/2 pounds. And my favorite new thing that she is doing......
She thinks that her farts are....
It is the funniest thing in the world!!! She will look at you and start giggling and wait for you to laugh!!
Anyways, she has been such a little joy! We love you baby! Here are a couple of pics of her and her tricks.....she is into everything and constantly doing something to make us laugh!!

Well, we have had a crazy couple of weeks. Farren got sent home almost two weeks ago from school because she was running fever. I took her to the doctor and they said she had a sinus infection and an ear infection. Started her on antibiotics and some congestion medicine....and she did get better. However, last Thursday she got sent home from school again because she was running ANOTHER fever. OMG. So, straight back to the doctor we went. This time, they say that the antibiotics must of not been working for her. And switched it up. I'm pretty sure thats incorrect because she was pretty much better up until Wednesday, I'm almost positive she caught something from someone somewhere else along the way. Moving on.....Thursday night, I noticed Keagan was feeling a little warm. I waited till Friday morning to see if anything happened, and sure enough she was still warm come Friday morning. I started pumping tylenol and motrin in her, and by 2:30 her fever was 102.6! Yes, it went UP! Shortly before, I got a call from my mother in law to let me know someone's kid at my sister in laws wedding the weekend before tested positive for the H1N1 flu virus. Wonderful! So, I called her doctor and they are not accepting anymore patients for the day because the physician was leaving early, and told me if her fever is over 102.5, she needs to go to the ER. So, I call my mom to come watch the other two, and head to the ER with Keagan. OH MY GOD.....EVERYONE and there mother was there. Luckily, I got in right before the BIG rush, and only ended up being there 5 1/2 hours. This place was crazy though, I've never seen so many sick people in my life. They were making make-shift rooms to seperate people with similar problems, and passing out masks so that noone would catch anything else. INSANE!! So, after being moved to a second waiting area and getting back to a make-shift room they made out of a pre-op room, we find out that Keagan has a 103.6 fever at this point and the flu. Yuck!! My poor baby, we have been pumping meds in her, and she is showing signs of improving today. On the bad side....I started feeling OFF yesterday and checked my temp to see a 103.3 fever! So, I'm pretty sure I have it too. And.....to make matters worse, Chris woke me up at midnight not feeling well. I checked his temp and he was at 101.8. So, low and behold almost everyone in our house is sick. I am aboslutely T-E-R-R-I-F-I-E-D of Deakon getting sick and being so small. So we are on full quarantine around the baby. Masks, gloves, and hand sanitizer are our best friend right now. And so far, he is fine. I only hope to keep it that way. Please please please pray that everything passes!! I hate any of my babies being sick.
Not to mention today is our Wedding Anniversary!!
What a what to spend it!! I love you baby!
