What a month!

October has been a very busy month around our house. I have started watching another baby that is 2 months older than Harrison. It makes life very interesting around out house. They are so busy together! Here they are in their double stroller which they love. The just kick their legs and clap their hands while they are in it.

Ben also started school. He is now working on his associate degree. He is taking Biology and then a research class that is 2 weekends in November.

Here are some new videos of Harrison. Hayden brought over a toy one day that has a microphone and the boys figured it out very quickly. They were so funny playing with it.

In the next video, I didn't know whether to beat Harrison or laugh so I just started taking pictures and videos. When I feed the babies lunch, I give them something they can pick up with their hands while I warm up their warm food. Well on this day I heard a splashing noise and I knew both babies were in their highchairs strapped in so there was no way they got down. I walked out of the kitchen and I see Harrison just splashing away on his tray and juice was going everywhere. I guess he figured out how to take his lid off his sippy cup and proceeded to pour out his entire cup of juice and play in it. He had juice everywhere. I had to wash all the padding and straps to his highchair and then give him a bath because he was sticky. Oh the joys of little boys! He is 500% little boy!

One last thing...I guess the saddest part of our month. Today we had to put Abbie to sleep. We will truly miss her, but I'm so at peace with my decision because I know she isn't in pain anymore and I don't have to worry about her. My house is so quiet without her here and I think right now that is the hardest part. I miss her bringing me toys, running all around guarding her food, and playing with Dixie. It's hard to believe I've had that little dog longer than I have known Ben. She was my baby. My very sweet and spoiled rotten baby, but she was mine. I will never be able to replace her. I'll miss you Abigail Grace...

Wow she needed a haircut, but she was a happy girl!

We miss everyone back home! Love to all!

Videos of Harrison

Here are a couple of new videos of Harrison. Just a quick update on him. He is now 10 months old. He is doing everything he is supposed to be doing. He weighs 18lbs and is 28 in long. We are working on him drinking from a sippy cup and eating table food both of which he isn't crazy about. If you don't know by now, we did get orders to Yorktown, VA so hopefully around April/May we will be moving back to the USA. We are super excited and ready to go! Enjoy the videos. Love to all!
