Oliver stole Adeline's apple... I guess he thinks he's a big kid. I was surprised at how well he actually ate it though.

11 months old

X and O are 11 months old today. Where does the time go? I ask myself that question quite often. All my kids are growing and changing quickly. It is so neat to see the personalities of Xavier & Oliver developing. Oliver is genuinely a happy baby. He is almost always smiling, but when he's not...Oliver is so much like Adeline with DRAMA! Yep, he is the one that will throw himself down and sob when I take something away from him. He also throws himself back -with great force- when he's upset. I can't count the times he has hit his head on the ground because I didn't catch him in time or someone else was caught off guard by his crazy antics. Xavier reminds me so much of Augustine- the happy, mellow guy. Xavier is turning out to be even tempered and happy. Both X & O love to play peek a boo and have lots of entertainment from D'Angelo and the A Team. I am amazed by these little guys every day.

Finally Outside! Daddy is going to take them for a nice walk through our yard.

snow, snow, snow!

The snow is falling today! The weatherman was not kidding. We are getting a fair amount of white stuff. Not the pretty fluffy kind, it's the very wet, heavy stuff. Schools were cancelled today, the Starbucks as well as an entire shopping mall in a nearby suburb has closed it's doors for the day, churches are cancelling ash wednesday services. It will be interesting to see how much actually accumulates. And I just received a call that my MOPS meeting is cancelled for tomorrow morning. Bummer, I was looking forward to going tomorrow.
I haven't gotten the kids together and outside yet but once Rick gets done with his work I'll bundle the big guys up & get them out there to play. I know they want to be out there very badly but I can't take them out there with the babies. We have tried to stay busy today doing crafts, playing and cooking.
