fall fun

I love the fall. Always have, probably cause I was such a nerd that as a kid I looked forward to going back to school and meeting my new teachers and seeing which kids were in my classes. Now, school days for myself are long gone, but there are new memories to make. Last night Levi and I got to go for a walk just the two of us after Enoch went to bed. The trees were on fire, and the harvest moon was enormous in the sky. It was so beautiful, and as a bonus Levi wanted to hold my hand the whole time so that his fingers wouldn't get too cold. He looked up at me through his glasses and said. "I love you mommy." So cute. I replied, "I love you, too, Levi." And then he said, "NO!! I love you," in a voice that let me know he was the only one showing any love.
Here are a cople pics of another walk we took this week.

bad mother

I am a bad mother, cause I let this happen to my child. But as you can see from the pictures, I think that I am the only one still suffering from the incident. Josh is real proud (of me); at least I could take a picture of the wound this time, and I didn't have to lay down on the ground at the doctor's office while they tended to my son.

snore wars

Sunday was an incredible day. It was so hot that it was Josh's idea to go for a walk; 27 degrees Celcius in mid-September will do that to any husband. Off we went and unfortunately our kids missed the entire trip. After I took this video clip, Levi woke up and was super mad that we hadn't gone for a walk yet. He thought we were trying to cheat him out of his outdoor time. Poor kid, better luck staying up next time.

thanks update

Here is a little FYI for any of you who want to know.
Levi had his eye appointment today, and his weak eye is doing much better. What was 20/70 a month ago is now almost back to 20/20 with his new glasses. Levi has been referred to see an opthamologist for an assessment to see if surgery will help straighten his eyes. We are a little bummed cause if everything didnt go so well today, Levi would have gotten a patch and we would already have half of his Halloween costume ready....we will have to think of something else.
Enoch is now happy on cows milk and I believe he is gaining weight. We do not see the pediatrician till the end of the month, so we will know for sure then whether or not he is getting fatter. To me he seems like a pig, so I think things will be in his favour.
Enoch has also taken his first step. (Not steps, just step.) Take your time, buddy, you've got ALL WINTER.
As far as potty training goes..... Levi has not had wet underpants for 2 days!!!! I just wish we could say the same thing for #2.

potty training 102

We have begun. No more diapers for Levi (daytime, anyways). Yesterday was an absolute failure, but today Levi did pee in the potty once, and pee on the potty once!!!! (but it sprayed everywhere else but the potty). At least he is not resisting and crying tlike he was before. What I dont get is that after peeing on the potty, he has peed another FIVE times consecutively in the same hour. What is up with that?

Lately Levi has been enjoying the Prince of Egypt, and it is often reflected in how he plays. When he drives cars, they are Moses' cars, when he has a stick, it is Moses' staff. He likes to use it to smite Enoch with the wrath of the 10 plagues. I hope these two brothers end up closer than the ones in the movie.

before, during and ever after

In a few short weeks we (Josh) transformed our dingy, dirty and dark bathroom into a beautiful oasis. Who knows, maybe I'll like it so much now I might do more than just brush my teeth. Hair dos here I come...
