We are sporting our Blue and Orange today.....though we are really watching all the good games out there! We had a great visit this morning with our cousin Emma....you can tell the angels love to play with Em! She gets in the floor with them and everything!!! I can tell they are still battling this crud stuff....but hopefully it will hurry and pass us on by as we have a busy couple of weeks ahead!!! First Birthday here we come!

Boy do I feel behind....so sorry to have not updated till now! This week has been crazy busy!!! We had an OB appt. on Tuesday that went really well and an ultrasound on Wednesday that also went well. We are still watching the kidney but do not see it as a big concern right now...doctors words. I got my weekly lecture on rest and the importance of rest with my lupus and so forth and made my usual promise to try! We also found out that we have to start twice weekly NST's.....that means twice weekly trips to Columbus...yuck!! But I know it is for the best and want to do all I can to ensure health and happiness for Morgan. We go next week for the NST on Tuesday and then another heart ultrasound (fetal echo) and NST on Friday. As for the "crud" we have all had here at home, I am thankful the children's claritin. It is helping the angels to get over this stuff.....they even went to nursery this morning while I was at Bible Study and did very well. We are off bottles except for bedtime in which we are getting a water bottle. All in all we are growing and changing daily...I can hardly keep up. Still working on the food and finger foods...but I think we are making progress. Thomas and Maddy are both taking steps....it is almost a competition with them to see who can get claps for walking....Maddy can walk and turn now and Thomas can make 7 or more steps at one time. They are SOOOO proud of themselves! Maddy is also saying "ball", "mama", "Uh-Oh", "hello", "hey", and they both do this sound of "aaank" which is their mocking me...I make the noise when they go after something they shouldn't....it is really funny....they copy whatever I do! Thomas doesn't talk too much...he does his own language though and loves to sing....he sings along with songs on the tv and when I am singing. Again...all is soooo good around here...busy but good! I can't believe our party is next weekend!!! My angels are turning 1 and I feel like the year has just flown by! God is soooo good!!!! Stay tuned...I am sure more is to come! :-)

What a ham......
Thomas driving and Maddy reading her books....she loves her books!!!!
Helping Daddy set up the sound system and DVD player.....
The cute barn dress.......not getting her way......
Wearing our orange and blue....
I know....Thomas should not have hangers in his mouth but you will do anything to distract him in order to dress him...and hangers work!
We ride on the outside of the cars now...more than the inside!
Working on our finger foods.....
I finally got this little giraffe put together....it was given to us for Christmas but we are finally at the age where we can really enjoy it....or fight over it!
Turning a one-seater into a two-seater.....
Maddy won and Thomas decided to sit it out....
I just wanted to share some pics from over the weekend. You will notice in many of them the runny noses and watery eyes. We have all been under the weather with what I like to refer to as "THE CRUD"! That yucky stuff that just lingers, no fever or serious need for a doctor, just the sniffles, runny noses, coughing, congestion...etc. We had some fun, we had some tears, we had lots of snuggling and clingy angels, but all in all it was a good weekend of togetherness!!!! Hope this finds you and yours feeling healthy and happy!!!!
