Wow, we have been busy! We are all doing great! Sam is almost 8 weeks and weighs 14 lbs. He is only 6 lbs. lighter than Stella! He is now sleeping 6 to 7 hour stretches at night, so I am only waking once a night to feed him. He smiles all of the time and is beginning to coo and gaa. He is just precious and a very "good" baby.

Stella is growing everyday. She is now 15 months and walking and dancing all over the house. She loves for us to play music and dance in a circle. Every Friday, we go to a place called "The Little Gym" for gym class with children her age. She walks on a balance beam, hangs from bars, and jumps on bounce mats. They also focus on cooperative learning skills. She just loves it! She is also talking, A LOT! She understands simple directions. She also LOVES her brother Sam. She gives him his nu-nu when he is crying and says "shhhhh". She has the sweetest disposition.

This is a picture of Sam at 6 weeks, below is a picture of Stella at 6 weeks. You can tell that they are brother and sister!!

Marla and Aunt Susan Lott put on a "Sip and See" for Sam and Eli. We had a wonderful turn out and it was so good to see so many relatives we haven't seen in a while. Thank you so much to Marla and Aunt Susan for a beautiful event that we will always treasure and remember!

There were 5 Great Grandmothers at the party! What lucky boys!

I was so excited for Halloween this year! Stella was a Lady Bug and Sam was a "Creeping Cutie"! Mom had a party at her house. We took Stella to a few houses for trick or treat, passed out candy, and had a wonderful meal. Stella LOVED the candy bowl and the children's costumes!

We celebrated Granny's 82nd birthday at Superior Grill. After the meal, Stella loved dancing to the band. We had a really good time. HAPPY BIRTHDAY GRANNY!
