Labor Day

It's been a fun filled summer since my 4th of July post! I'm sad to see Summer go, but this is the first year that I have been ready for cooler weather!! We welcomed a new baby girl H to the family at the beginning of August, she is precious!

We spent a fun Saturday afternoon at Arrington Vineyards, we took the babes and they were very good, there were lots of kiddos running around!! I was hesitant about taking them but it was very kid friendly and the wine was great!!!

We went back to the beach on Labor Day and as usual had a great time! Since the babes have started crawling and are now trying to walk, it’s almost impossible to get a good picture of them! Everyone tells me this is not unusual for 18-month old babies, so I will just do the best I can.

My best girl.....

My best guy......

We also had our 1-year evaluation with the State Early Intervention Program and it went very well. I can’t believe that it’s been a year that we have been receiving services, I highly recommend that if your children need the services, please take advantage of this program. They have made a huge difference with L & G. We are still patching Gavin’s eye to strengthen the bad and will continue to do so as long as the vision continues to improve in that eye. He is still losing contacts like the stock market is losing money!! We have lost 4 or 5 in the last couple of months, I’m sure insurance is probably getting ready to say, ENOUGH, but what can they expect from an 18 month old?!

All in all, L&G are doing great! G has started to develop an attitude now, L has always had an attitude (some say she is like her mother) and they are starting to throw temper tantrums. I wonder if the terrible twos will hold off until their adjusted age of 2 years old, which would buy me another 10 months, instead of just 6……..Probably not?!?!

We are starting a new sitter in October, they will actually be going to someone’s house on the days that I work. I am very nervous about it, but I know that it will be good for them to be around other kids. Hope everyone is doing well, we have the annual Griswold’s Family Get Together at Todd’s sister’s house this weekend, so I will have more pictures to post next week.
