First Day of School

Here is our first day of school photos.....2 months late!

Bella got a new wheelchair right before school started.  She is able to sit in it better, but it's quite a lot heavier for us to transport around.

Oliver is quite silly now in front of the camera.  He is actually in two different preschool programs this year.  He is a child that definitely needs structure and to be around a lot of friends.

Gray at 11 Months

At 11 months, which was basically the month of September, we were busy transitioning Gray to daycare.  She really has done well and loves to play with all the other babies.  Minus the fact she is still a sketchy napper, it's been good for everyone.  Of course we still have had issues with teething and already got our first cold of the season.  With being in daycare this year, I'm sure there are many more to come.

Still busy crawling around and also, already enjoying walking around while holding on to mom or dad's hands.  Our balance is a little off, so I think it's going to be a little while longer before we start walking on our own.  Has been pulling up on furniture, but hasn't figured out how to hold on and move around while standing.

Loves, loves, loves books.  In this picture she is looking up at all her books!

A Good Day at School

Bella has adaptive PE at school.  They get to bring some fun things over for her to play with.  I believe this happens around once a month.

This week she got to ride an adaptive trike and it looks like she was having fun!

Out Crawling Around

It was a beautiful day so we headed outside to crawl around and Oliver got to fly a kite.

Or maybe Dad did most of the flying!

Gray at 10 Months

Technically this was three months ago and to be honest it's hard to remember what was going on then.  I do know Gray started crawling 3 days before she turned 10 months old.  So at this point we started to get mobile!

And we were getting in lots of teeth!!

She was a huge crab up until the point she finally started crawling, so about the whole previous month she was super frustrated she couldn't crawl and she was busy bringing in those teeth.  That made for one fussy baby....ALL THE TIME!

I'm making family costumes again this year!!!  Store bought costumes are just not the same.

So we are doing a family theme and Oliver was in charge of picking it out.  I'll give you one hint for now....Jesse's costume consists of bright green spandex.

His costume isn't much of a's more of a riddle!

I'm behind on life.  First off, my computer started to break down on me months ago.  Was waiting on a good deal to get a new one.  Got one.  Returned it.  Got a second one.  Returned it.  Got a third one, which I am using now.  Little bit of a learning curve on a new operating system, but biggest problem is most of the software I was used to using, doesn't quite work yet with the new system.  So I'm having to rethink how I do everything.  And it's taking forever.

So where it has usually been slow around here, it's now even worse.  Hoping to get things solved soon.

I'm also behind on Gray monthly posts, and she just celebrated her first birthday this weekend.  I have posts and photos to share, just have to find the time to write them.

For now, I want to share some family photos we took a few weekends ago on Bella's birthday weekend.  We headed to a local orchard on a great fall weekend.
