Coleman is feeling MUCH better (although now Carter has his cold~) and his two bottom teeth are really starting to come in. We were finally able to get a picture of these two little chompers!

Happy Halloween!

Happy Halloween! I hope you had a great holiday! We celebrated by attending a neighborhood festival and another festival at a large shopping center, our annual "orange dinner", and playing trick or treat in our new pumpkins that I found for them online.
Here are some of my favorite pictures over the past few days...I can't wait until next year when they can enjoy more of the "big kid" activities, but for now I don't mind carrying these cute little monkeys around :o)

Uncle Daniel

Uncle Daniel (Jared's brother) ran his first marathon today in D.C. We are so proud of him and all of his training and the boys wanted to send him a little picture message to wish him luck...Way to go Daniel!

First Cold

We have been fortunate that neither of the boys have been sick (and they are almost 8 months old!), but poor Coleman has finally caught his first cold. Poor little guy! I think it's harder for Jared and I to see but his personality definitely doesn't seem to be affected. In the past two weeks he's battled eczema, two teeth, and now his little cold! Hopefully the month of November will be a much better one for my little buddy.

Let's Go Falcons

I love watching college football, but there is nothing like being at a professional football game and in the atmosphere of it all. Jared and I were able to go to the game this weekend and watch the Falcon's win. It was such an exciting game! The boys were in full Falcon's gear to help support the team too :o)

Growing up

I took the boys outside the other day to enjoy the weather and they had a BLAST watching Nestle play fetch. They absolutely love her and would squeal and laugh every time she brought the ball and would go chase it. I know she can't wait until they are old enough to play a game of fetch with her but in the meantime she is definitely bringing them some smiles.

Here are some other cute big boy pictures from this weekend....

Carter dancing with Daddy....

...and playing with Nestle...

Visiting with Jordan, Lovey, and Big Poppa

Jared's sister and parents were in Atlanta over the weekend and we were able to sneak in a quick visit with them before our afternoon nap. Here are some of the sweet pictures that we took. We can't wait to see them again!

7 Month Shots

It's so hard for me every time we go to the pediatrician for the boy's shots! I know it is probably a lot harder for them but to see those sweet faces get stuck with a needle when they least expect it sure does break a mommy's heart! I can't hold them tight enough afterwards but the good part is that the boys quickly dry up their tears and are back to their smiley selves!

Coleman just thinking about getting his shots...

Carter, just being his normal self and looking at anything and everything he could get his little fingers on...

Monkey See, Monkey Do

Here are our monkeys in their Halloween outfits...

Trick or Treat

Look at these cute Trick or Treat boys ;o)


The boys are really enjoying their new view as they sit and play with their toys and are now able to do it more 10-15 minute stretches before toppling over AS LONG AS their toys are in front of them...otherwise they start to reach for anything and everything and over they go! Here are some cute pictures of them laying this morning and "talking" to each other about their toys...and of course putting EVERYTHING in our mouths. I usually dress them in the same pj's but one of us was a little wet this morning. ;o)


Both of the boys are trying so hard to crawl and are mainly "swimming" on their quilt as they reach for objects just out of their grasp. Over the past few days they have really started to figure out that their legs must be involved somehow to get them in the right direction...Coleman has caught on the most with this so far, but he is now going in reverse! It cracks me up to watch him reach for a toy and wind up a good two feet away from it! Here are some pictures of him reaching for his toy this morning.

Just a few little laughs to help your morning off to a good start ;o)
