Toby. Zoe.

Lets see, it's been a while since I updated you on what is happening with Toby and Zoe. So lets start now,

Toby. He is a character! He loves to laugh and make people laugh. He is HUGE into playing any kind of sport or anything on the Wii! Right now he is struggling with listening to us! Maybe it's because he hangs out with college kids all day that don't have parents telling them things they can and cannot do or maybe it's because he is 3. All we know is that it is tiring and makes for some rough days! He always wants to sleep in mommy and daddy's bed. The other day he wasn't wanting to take a nap and I had to focus on getting Zoe to sleep, this is how I found him ! :)
I guess he was tired!! ha ha!! He has been using the big boy potty for a while now and wearing underwear (when he is awake) regularly. The other morning he decided to wear them on his head!! what a goof!
You can actually have a full blown conversation with him! I don't have to translate for other people anymore! We will be in the school cafeteria and he will just be wondering the tables (well usually its running) and will talk to who ever is around!!
Over all Toby has been growing up so fast and we are trying to love every minute of it!! Some days are more of a challenge than others but he is a great boy who is loving life!!

Next on to Zoe. She is 9 months already! How is that possible? She has 5 teeth and last time I weighed her was 24 pounds! She CRAWLS!! Toby never crawled so it's very strange to have a baby that crawls. However she still loves to walk. Walk with holding your hands, walk along the couch and around the ottoman. Needless to say she is everywhere!! She loves to be on the move!
She sings and talks all the time. It is wonderful! For Halloween she dressed up as one of her favorite people of all time..... TOBY!
We didn't do anything really for Halloween, we opened up our building for the kids in the neighborhood. Toby would have rather played in some of the guys rooms so he didn't even dress up as anything! Zoe has been struggling with sleeping. Well getting to sleep and staying asleep during the day. Some naps it would take 30 -45 mins for her to fall asleep and then she would only sleep for about 25 - 30 mins!! Not worth all the crying!! We thought we had moved past this but it is still happening..... I guess we will wait and see if maybe its another tooth coming in.
She is discovering things all the time!! I love seeing her face as she studies something. She found pumpkins last night at a harvest party we were at. She had to be touching them at all times when she was by them. It was funny! And yes she still has her famous hair that sticks up!! :)

I love seeing the 2 of them interact together! Zoe LOVES Toby and could watch him all day long! He can get her to laugh so easily! I wonder if she will like to play with dolls or girly things, right now all she wants are cars and balls!! :)

We feel very blessed to have 2 wonderful children in our lives and can't wait to see them grow up (not to mention grow 'out' of the things they are dealing with right now!!) But this is our life right now and we love it!
