I'm still at a loss as to what to write about this first picture. There are so many directions you could go, so I'll just leave it to you (be good!) Isaac is thrilled in that second picture with his new "Storm Trooper" costume. We know, of course, that it's not really a storm trooper, but a clone, but he doesn't so it's all good. And that third picture....well...I think I'd look scared if that crazy lady were holding me, too.
Fall is leading quickly to winter. Isaac has begun Occupational Therapy, but is having some serious issues with actually leaving the OT time. We're working on it, but if it continues, I wonder if it is really helpful for him to continue. Otherwise, he's doing well at school and is making some friends with some other little boys of similar energy levels (eek!). Lydia is speaking in clear and thoughtful sentences, and also exploring boundaries a lot these days. "NO!" is a favorite experiment of hers. It never ends well for her, so hopefully she'll figure it out soon. Simon has started rolling from belly to back and is taking naps in his own room now. We moved Lydia's bed into Isaac's room for the time being....and they are both thrilled. We'll see what happens when Simon can sleep in a regular bed. Simon is also favoring his left thumb, and if he follows his siblings, this means he has a very strong chance of being right-handed, as the other two sucked their "off" hand.
I can't believe that Thanksgiving is two weeks away and Christmas right around the corner. Life is moving faster than ever with three children, and I only hope I'm wise enough to savor a moment here and there.
