Today they wore this:
Despite the huge change in weather, we've been enjoying our outside playtime. Here's a few pictures of Rolly sitting up all by himself. It's not perfect, but pretty good for almost 5 months. What a big boy!

So after much searching we finally found a storytime in the community that we like. We went to 3 different locations before settling on the one we go to now, and I really like it, so do the boys. Firefighters come to read several stories, show their firetruck and equipment, and then the kids do a craft. The lady in charge is a hoot. She says it gets the week off to a great start with a little "firefighter eye-candy." (FYI: she's about 65 years old and these are mostly young, single firefighters! Too funny!)
Anyway...today we read some Halloween books, made a spider hat and a lantern, played pin the spider on the web, and went on a ghost hunt. It was great preschool fun! Lucky's still learning to sit rather than wander during reading time, but 3 books in a row is still kind of a lot for him at this point. He talked all about the stories on the way home, so apparently he listened as he wandered.

Yesterday we had some friends over to enjoy the season. We had fall pictures taken (coming soon!), painted and carved pumpkins, cooked out, and played. Lucky wore himself out with all the fun. He had no problem taking a nap today, neither did the rest of the family! :) Check out the video of Lucky's first pumpkin painting experience.
Here is the finished product! Ta-da!

Birthday's are such crazy things to me. Especially since the birth of my boys I am so much more into their birthdays than my own. I used to not only have a birth-day, but also a birth-week, a full week of dinners with this friend or that, family birthday, date birthday, school birthday, etc. Now my birthday is just another day made special by spending it with my favorite boys. Don't get me wrong I still love birthday gifts and celebrating with others, but moments like this one are the best presents. I had a very happy birthday indeed.

I took them both to the doctor on Tuesday, mostly because Rolly seemed under the weather, but decided to have Lucky checked out too. As it turns out Lucky had a severe ear infection, and Rolly a cold. Not fun but managable.
Several days have past and Rolly developed some more symptoms, so we took him back to the doctor today. He has an ear infection also and some wheezing, so he's on a steriod, antibiotic, breathing treaments, and fever reducer. The poor little guy still has no problem smiling. It makes me so sad when my boys are sick. I feel like I need my MD to be a qualified parent.
