It has been forever since I posted some pics...
We are keeping busy.
This last July I started doing daycare . The first month I watched 2 kids. (Brothers). Ross--3 yrs. old and John Paul 6 months. Now I'm just watching John Paul.
It has been a good experience...every now and again Halle and Noah get attention deprived and turn extremely needy on me, but they have done really well having another baby in the house. Who knows--maybe it's time for #3.

Kirk is enjoying oral surgery. In January he will do 6 months of General Surgery rotation and will be very busy, so we are enjoying having him around as much as he is right now.

Noah is learning so much. He says the funniest things. One day we were driving in the car and he says to me..."Your papa Doug, and I'm papa Mike." (He's into pretending to be people)....and a few minutes later I listened to him ask Halle...."Halle, how's your day"....and then a second later, "Don't worry, it's ok." Who knows what goes on in that little mind. He's so cute.

Halle is full of personality--and mostly ATTITUDE!
Her days are full of frustration. Hopefully once she starts talking she won't feel so helpless.
Girls and boys are totally different, but at this point--equally difficult.
We love them though and are so blessed to have them in our life.

Noah being a football star!! The soccer basket is his helmet...if you couldn't tell.

Muscle man!

It is 5:00 and I can't believe both of my babies are still sleeping from their afternoon naps. I thought I would post a few pics while I had a minute.

Ross and Noah painting...a new passion!!!

We went to the beach last Sat. and had so much fun!

Halle's 1st cut...and it had to be on her face!!
These pictures were taken on our 1 year Anniversary of moving to NY. We picked up food from this little diner exactly one year to the date, so we thought it would be a fun tradition to go back there. Sometimes little diners have the best food.

I can't believe it's been over a year. I love everything about living here... I love the friends I've made and I love Tarrytown. It is so beautiful here. I have a feeling it will be hard when it's time to move!!!

This is so hillarious...
I was busy making cards for my niece and nephew's Bday, and I decided to check on Noah who was supposed to be taking a nap.
His bed was empty, so I immediately thought he went outside.
My heart started racing--I ran to the back door, but it was still locked. Then I came back to check his bed again and when I walked into the family room I saw his little feet barely showing out from under the pillows on the couch.

He looks so tall!...it must be the angle!

Halle's 1st B-day pics....Finally!

The other morning I was getting ready for our Primary Activity so I put Halle in her crib. She sat in there for seriously 1 hr and 45 min. just hanging out. She must have known I was kind of stressed and needed the time. She never even made a peep. It was unbelievable! No toys or bottle, just her blankies and her baby doll. How does that happen???
She has so much personality! I love how happy she is all the time.

The Barbie CAKE!
Noah, trying to lick his frosting...

Messy hair to go w/the messy face.

Our friends David & Jessica came over for dinner. We ate the cake outside. (A smart decision)
Campbelle, Mckay, Noah & Halle

So Sweet!
I swear it starts at once. They instantly start causing trouble when they turn a year.
Getting into drawers! Lovely.
Just looking for something 2 get into.
Birthday morning....a few minutes later the drawer was empty.
:)LOVE cleaning up the messes....
....And she helps me unload the dishwasher!
Oh, but I love her!!! Halle is such an Angel. I am so lucky to have her.

Cousin Emma's Birthday party

Noah w/his cousin Jaylee at the statue Halle's bday! We celebrated w/the 3 of us.
Kirk had to stay at the hospital...so we had a party with our
friends the next night.

Noah on my sister's pony! He fits perfectly.
Noah's favorite toy for now!!!
Halle's 1 yr check up.
Noah w/cousin Jackson
Noah's favorite bud. Cousin Ehtan.
Halle is cruising around holding on to things and standing for short periods of time. I'm sure she'll start walking some day soon and I'll regret ever wanting it to happen.
Noah is such a cute big brother. He is starting to be protective of Halle. When ever she is doing something that looks like she could get hurt he says, "be careful Halle." He walks in front of her if she is getting near stairs and says no, no Halle. I'm just glad I don't have to worry about protecting her from him every second of the day.
We are approaching our 1st year of living here in NY. Kirk is glad to be through his intern year. It has taken a little adjusting. We think about how carefree our lives use to be. It is definitley different now, but I am loving every second of it.

Last night our friends came over and Noah was showing off to his friend Claire (6 yrs. old).
He was talking her ear off, playing basketball, football, baseball, and running around like a mad man. He even pushed in his little toilet from the bathroom (don't worry--NEVER been used)...and kept on saying to her: "Poo poo in POTTY. We laughed so hard and Noah would say a few more things to her about it. Claire was getting shy from all the attention and hid under her jacket. Noah however, loved every second of the ATTENTION. It was hilarious!!!

2 years old!

I can't believe my little boy is 2! Time goes by so fast.
Noah was up at 5:30 just like every morning. I swear he has an alarm clock programmed in his mind so he can say goodbye to Kirk before he leaves to work. Since he was up we gave him a few presents to open. He loved his first baseball bat and ball...and his Thomas train. He even took Thomas w/him during his afternoon nap.
We had a very low key birthday this year...Just the four of us had dinner here at our place and then had Birthday cake for dessert.
Noah loved his baseball cake.

This is my favorite! Cross-eyed, totally mesmerized by the flame!!!

It was so hard to make the lines straight...and like a baseball. Trust me Kirk let me know just how to do them. (Several times)

Presents at 5:30 in the morning!

We love our cute little Noah!!!
