happy start of the holidays!

Bonjour!  Ca va? (how are you?)

We are all finally feeling better and hopefully I can say that for a long while! 2 weeks ago, Nevaeh got the flu (poor thing was so scared, didn't know what was going on) and then last week Jason and I got it at the exact same time. Talk about poor timing, because we couldn't move let a lone take care of our daughter! But now, praise the Lord! and prayerfully, we are all done with that yucky stuff for the season.

So after all that, Halloween did come and I don't particularly like Halloween but it was somewhat fun this year. We took Nevaeh to Merle Hay mall, and it was fun to see a safe environment for kids to have fun with this holiday. Jason and I haven't decided if we are going to take her out trick or treating or not later on, but for now, I like the mall. We bought her skeleton pajamas (boring, I know, but people got it) and she kept calling herself a monkey. I don't know why, but we asked if she was a skeleton and she would say, "No, I'm a monkey." So, ok, she thought she was monkey, whatever floats her boat.

On that note, Nevaeh is an amazing talker! We can actually hold a conversation with her and she will answer us and talk to us with words, not sounds. Its a lot of fun, and I'm in awe of her everyday.

I feel good and baby boy Karaidos is getting bigger and more wiggly. He likes to be curled up in a ball and in one spot. Usually, its in the most uncomfortable spot for me; either on my bladder or somewhere near my spine that my back kills until he moves.

Ok, enough talking and I'll get to the pictures. Oh, one more thing, I love the holidays and I'm so excited for them and to celebrate Jesus' birth this year! So HAPPY START TO THE HOLIDAYS EVERYONE!

Pumpkin carving!! You know Nevaeh is my daughter when she goes right into the pumpkin to grab the guts! She had a blast and was so excited to see it happening. She kept saying, "I excited mommy!" Although when Jason start to cut it she said, "oh no, the pumpkin owey (sp?)" that is the first picture.

New experiences

Hello, Hello!!

Our top 4 new experiences this month.... 

Jason raked for the first time today and she jumped right in! She ran, dove, explored all the leaves. Oh yeah, and wrestled with daddy. 

I love this picture!

She has entered gymnastics this last month and seems to love it! Its perfect for energetic little self, not so good for a slow last trimester prego lady though. Its fun to watch her run on that really neato long trampoline and walk on the beam. 

Running on the really neato long trampoline thing. 

"swinging" on the rope like Diego!

She has been trying to jump all summer and she finally made it off the ground one day on these flat boxes.  She is doing a fake fall here and loves fake falling. Its so funny to see what kids come up with. 

Mid-air jump

I gave her some stickers and loves them! She puts them on the top of her feet and walk around and randomly take them off and put them on things. (We have been putting things in garage sales and seeing us price things). 

Random photos.... 

I absolutely love this age and the new things Nevaeh is doing!!! People say the best age is when they can't crawl yet, but still is interactive, but I very much disagree! I love this age Nevaeh is at and the more she grows and gets smarter, its so fun to watch! 

I am feeling good and pictures of baby Karaidos boy will up when the room gets done. I am so excited to meet him and see who he looks like!! 3 more months, it has gone by so fast!

Well, God Bless!
