Happy 10 months and 2 years!!

Where on earth has the last 10 months gone? Alex is 10 months and 1 day old and it really does feel like we brought him home yesterday. I took him in a couple of days ago and he is almost 23 pounds!! What a big boy!
2 years ago we met Jacks birth mom for the first time. I get emotional even thinking about that first meeting. I still cannot believe that she picked us and I am thankful everyday for her decision to give us her child.
What a joy these 2 boys have brought to our lives. Sometimes I wonder how on earth we got so lucky. Now if we only had a daughter. Stay tuned for baby #3...
I love this picture of the boys, I know that it is not the best and Jacks face is blurry, but they were having such a wonderful time jumping in the crib together. We were all laughing so hard!!

Pumpkin Time!

A friend gave me two pumpkins from her garden with the suggestion that the boys paint them. What a great day!! Jack actually got into it and loved it. Now he is asking to paint more. I see a trip to the pumpkin patch in our future! I love being a mommy of two boys!!!

Another therapist

As if our schedule was not crazy enough, they are adding another therapist to Alex's team. I know that I should not complain but sometimes this all feels so overwhelming. I could go on and on and have a pity party but I am sure that there is a diaper change with my name all over it!

Lets play a game called "mind ya"

Mind your own business... Seriously!!
I was at the mall today even though I am suffering from the flu. Yuck, I will spare you the details. Mind you this is the ONLY day that I have to get this shopping done and the second attempt at it. The first attempt ended with two screaming babies who were actually fighting with each other and one mommy who was ready to get home for a tall glass of wine.
So, I was minding my own business at the food court with a bag of McDonalds. Let me first say that we NEVER eat fast food and this was a rare treat for all of us. Trust me, I am the crazy organic, sugar/wheat/gluten free mommy but today was special. As we were eating I noticed two ladies with their kids sit down next to us to eat. They both gave me the once over and then turned and started whispering to each other. Hmm... were they talking about me? My kids? I thought maybe they were just jealous of my super hot mommminess and my gorgeous kiddos, but no. They were questioning my food choices. As we were leaving one of the mommies actually said to me,"You may want to think about feeding your kids healthier food or they will grown up to be fat". And then she giggled to the other mommy. Really?. Who does that? Maybe if I knew the ladies I would of thought that they were being helpful but no, they were being bitchy. Needless to say I was shocked and annoyed, I mean they did have the apples and not the fries. Geez, who's kid has never eaten McDonalds?
As I was leaving I noticed the bitchy mommy had her 5 year old on a leash with a binkie who was eating ice cream. Really? I want to take parenting advice from her???
