One and a Half


18 months! Today Jake is 1 and a half! It hardly seems possible. The last few weeks have brought an explosion of language. It seems like every day another new word comes out of Jake's mouth. I sometimes find myself looking at him wondering if "that" word just came out of his mouth! Speaking of "that", he is pointing to things saying either "is" or "at" if he wants something. Jake has started calling Papi "Papa" and says Mammo. After being with my mom and dad all weekend I thought I heard Jake saying Grampa and Gramma yesterday.
Jake continues to be curious about everything. It's impossible to try to sneak something past him. He is very aware. It can be exhausting running after him all of the time, but it is so fun to feel his sense of wonder and to watch him exploring.
When Jake really likes something he wants to do it over and over. He could sit and listen to a book being read and when we get to the end of it he says and signs "more". He could read the same book 10 times in a row. Jake's favorite book right now is "The Little Engine that Could". He loves to dump and fill buckets with toys and he loves water play.
Yesterday I had the kids to the doctor for a sick visit and Jake weighed in at 25 pounds and Samantha at 28 pounds. No wonder people often ask us if they are twins! It's hard to believe that our babies are growing up. It is so fun to watch them together as they become closer and closer. They really are enjoying playing together and running after one another.

15 Years and Counting!

We had a great time at home with my mom and dad for Thanksgiving. Despite the fact that the kids had colds (that's what we thought at the time), we still had a pretty good Thanksgiving. Luckily it wasn't until Friday and Saturday that they kids really showed signs on not feeling well. I didn't do well at all at taking pictures this time, but I do have this photo of Jake folk dancing with my Aunt Lucy, mom, and my cousins Kristie and Bethany. We had our Thanksgiving dinner at our church this year as a family, which actually ended up being very nice. It gave us a ton of space to accommodate the family, and it gave the kids lots of space to run around in the gym. My Aunt Lucy does folk dancing, and if you've ever been to a family gathering, you'd know that there is usually some type of musical activity post meal. This year was folk dancing, and Jake happily joined in!

Saturday after Thanksgiving, Chris and I went to my 15th high school reunion. I had a great time catching up with classmates. I keep saying what a great group of people ended up being there. Everyone seemed genuinely interested in talking with everyone else, and it was a lot of fun! Here are a few pictures from the night!

UBS Thanksgiving Parade Spectacular

Last weekend we headed into Stamford with my friend Aimee and her family to join them in their annual tradition of watching the Thanksgiving Parade. This parade is the "practice" parade for the balloon handlers in the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade. We had a gorgeous day and had a great time looking for all the balloons. Thanks Aimee and Pete for including us in on your fun!

The best seats for watching the parade!


Thankful

What we are really thankful for around here are antibiotics! Last week as we headed down to PA for Thanksgiving, both kids were hacking away in the back seat. Chris and I exchanged "this is great" looks, and crossed our fingers that we weren't up against more sickness. Jake had just gotten over a 3 day viral infection, and everyone had colds. Long story short, after coming back to CT after Thanksgiving, I got both kids into the doctor's yesterday morning, figuring they would tell me it was another viral infection that would go away within 24 hours. Boy was I wrong! After numerous calls to the doctor over the holiday, I am so glad I took both kids to be seen even though Samantha seemed to be on the mend. Both kids have pneumonia and ear infections! So, now we are on 10 days of antibiotics which has been really fun since Jake has decided to clamp his mouth shut and protest loudly. Pictures and updates of our Thanksgiving week are coming soon (hopefully).
