We went to the fair last week, it was Dollar day so admission was only $1 which was good since we didn't have any money to burn! Everything in the fair of course was so expensive so we stuck with the free stuff like the petting zoo. They had all sorts of animals including a giraffe, ostrich and camel. Kristen freaked over the tiny baby goats and chicks. It was so cute to see her shrieking and pointing excitedly.
Then the next day we met up with my friend Jen and her kids Carter and Bri. We went to Michaels for the great pumpkin event. We went last year and loved "glittering" our $5 pumkins. This year no glitter =( But the kids still had fun with pipe cleaners and googly eyes. Carter absolutely adores Lauren. He calls her "Warren" and it's so cute! Jen was a trooper even though little Bri was fussy!
I decided it's time for me to document what my girls are up to these days so I can look back and remember..after all this is my only form of a journal lately!
Kristen is quite the little walker these days. She's become a real pro! She's very cautious and makes sure to take her time around any sort of obstacle. She's is fascinated by dogs, birds, and balloons...especially balloons! Anytime we're in a store with balloons she shrieks with excitement and points and says her best version of balloon. Oh and I can't forget shoes! This girl LOVES shoes. She even wants to sleep with them on sometimes. She still only says a few words at this point but everyday I hear different sounds and attempts at words. She has said pretty, ball, balloon, nana (for banana and her Nana!) Mom, Dad, and some weird sounds for Lauren. Oh and of course Hi and nuh-uh & shakes her head no. She says Baby like "bay-bay" with an accent...so cute! Lauren is quite the little learning sponge lately. She's taken an interest in sounding words out and we have gotten her a little pre-school curriculum book and she LOVES to do her homework! She's pretty much mastered most things in the book, we still have to work on her writing some of her letters better. She's getting so tall and it seems like all of her clothes are too short for her all of the sudden. She also has taken an interest in what she looks like. She wants me to straighten her hair and today when I was waxing Cory's uni-brow I did Lauren's too at her request! She asks us daily if we will play Barbies with her. Barbies and stuffed animals are her absolute favorite toys. Cory just started his first week of Rotations...YAY! This means he is done with classes...forever! Now he just basically rotates around every month or so to work with doctors in all different specialties for the next couple of years. Right now he's working with a Neurologist. We get to see him every evening now with no studying! It's been nice except for the fact he got the stomach flu first thing and had to call in sick on his second day! He's better now and hopefully good to go. We get to go home for the month of December so he can do a rotation with a doctor in our hometown. We're quite excited! Well and as for me, not much new to report other than losing 60 lbs total now! Woo hoo! I was holding steady at 57 lost but then a little bout of a stomach bug this week gave me a little extra help! =) We're gearing up for Halloween and of course Lauren changes her mind daily what she wants to be. I love Halloween. The decorations are always so cool and in the best colors. I love wandering through the ailes and of course my favorite is when everything goes 75% off after it's over!
I am a wife to a wonderful husband and a mom to 2 beautiful little girls. We moved to Miami in June 2010 where Cory started his Podiatry residency. We are so proud of our new doctor!! Now we are looking forward to the new adventures living in Florida will provide!
