We're 15 months old!

I can't believe the kids are 15 months old...how time flies!!! We are finally in our new house, not settled, but we're getting there...slowly. With the help of friends and family we have some time without the kids to get projects done. The kids LOVE the house. They've hardly touched their toys as they are too busy exploring and getting into trouble! They've mastered climbing stairs, now we're working on going down them (a much harder task). What I've realized in the last 3 weeks is the kids understand more than we give them credit for. When we say, "It's time for a nap" or "Time to go to bed" they go to the door that leads upstairs and if we ask, "Do you want to go outside?" they go to the back door to go outside. Little milestones I know, but big for us! We go to the pediatrician on Thursday so I'll post again with their measurements. Nathan is still a ham and Anna is still our peanut and then there's Karly :)!

This past week I lost a friend from nursing school , she and her husband were killed in a tragic car accident. They left behind a 4 year old daughter. So, take this time to love your kids and family because you never know when it's going to be the last time you get to hug or kiss them. And think about putting together a living will for your children, in case, God forbid, something like this should happen to you.

Sorry for the damper, hope these pictures lift your spirits! Take care of yourself.
