Halloween and Thanksgiving



I have been so bad at updating. Things are just so busy these days. I haven't even done a post about our Halloween!

Halloween here was HOT and the costumes were like little roasting bags for my babies! They didn't seem to mind, however. William loved being outside when the sun was not as bright (he has some photophobia) and was so calm! He did a lot of staring at his Daddy, who carried him for much of the night. Margaret also had a great time. It didn't take her long to figure out that people were giving out candy and she loved grabbing what she wanted out of the bowls. She also knows no fear and walked right into a few houses and explored. Most people thought it was really funny but it kind of scared me...

Thanksgiving was good even though William had been fighting a cold. Our family took the five hour drive and spent the holiday with David's parents. Margaret refused all Thanksgiving food. William threw up about four times. It was the best Thanksgiving in a while... since 2004. 2005, fresh NICU graduate sequestered for the winter. 2006, in the hospital days from having Mister. This year was nice in comparison!

William is now over his cold. He is a baby who does the cough-n-puke so I'm sure he has lost some weight. There were several days when he kept no food down at all. Margaret has a bit of a runny nose today. Daddy is snorty and I've got a bit of a throat tickle... I'm praying this is short lived. I was hoping that this winter would be more "well" since it is M's second at Mother's Day Out. She is certainly getting over her colds faster but I still get everything she brings home. Blah!

Your kids are super cute! I love that last one of Margaret - she's very grown up now huh?

It's both amazing and slightly sad to see everyone growing up, for me.

A Big Birthday Shout Out to Mister William!

And I agree with Jennifer, Margaret does look so grown up in that pic (not that I have ever seen her in person, but just compared to your other posts).

I hope you all are on the upswing from the sickies and you are able to enjoy this important day.

Love,
Erin and Fletcher

I'm glad things are going so well for you all. The kids are getting big and you are right when you say time is flying by. Margaret looks incredibly grown up in the Turkey day pic and I can't believe William is one today. My goodness, weren't our babies just in the NICU? It's wonderful being able to enjoy the holidays this year. Give those two beauties huge hugs from me and tell Mr. William Happy 1st Birthday!!
