Well I do since I move him every night but...like Leo tells me it's nothing you need to worry about! :)
Anyways...my favorite pose so far has been him playing cards with his buds. So every day he's here in December I'll document the shenanigans he's been up to. It will also help me remember next year what to do with him! So here we go!

As I've been sitting at home by myself with a sick baby today, except for a short time in the middle of the day (thanks mom for bringing me food!) I've been thinking about who I'm thankful for. I've already told you I'm thankful for the family I live with and even though I left those pretty short and sweet I'm supremely grateful for them. But I am close with my immediate family as well so today that is who I'm thankful for...
I'm thankful for my mom. Even though she didn't feel well today too, she came over and brought me food from the Thanksgiving dinner that I missed and hung out with me for almost 2 hours. She knew I'd be lonely and bored spending my holiday with no adult interaction (the hubby went ahead and took Leo to his family celebration). And while it's not out of the ordinary for her to do something like that I am so grateful for it. She does so much and I feel like I will never be able to repay what she means to me.
I'm thankful for my dad. He will (and does) do pretty much anything I need him to do (within reason). He helps take Leo to school a few days a week so we don't have to pay so much in before school care and he used to pick him up from the daycare and just hang with Leo one evening a week. Just the special bond he has with Leo is so awesome to see. It is amazing to see the love and admiration Leo has for his grampy! :)
I'm thankful for my brother. He and I were not terribly close as kids but as we've both grown and he moved back to our hometown and settled down we have become closer. Obviously I'm a family girl so we're not nearly as close as I'd like to be but it's nice that we see each other quite a bit and do things together. I was especially thankful when he thought to invite Leo and I to the movies with his family last night. It wasn't something he had to do, but it was nice that he included us.
I'm thankful for my sister-in-law. When my brother first brought Amy home I knew she was the one. And even though there were ups and downs I am so thankful that she has stuck around! :) She is awesome in the fact that she always thinks of the little things for the kiddos around the holidays and always has fun things for them. And she is an awesome baker. She also gives me something to strive for because she is pretty much superwoman/supermom. So I'm thankful she is in our lives because I have someone to keep me on track! Haha.
And I'm thankful for my aunt Davi and uncle Bob. While they're not technically immediate family they are my Godparents so I'm going to count them. They always are there when needed. And Davi is my walking partner (even though I've been slacking lately!). I'm so grateful that they have stayed a major part of my life and become a part of Leo and Jacoby's lives. And they're the ones that talked me into sending Leo to the Catholic school and so I'm definitely grateful for that!
As you can see I have a LOT of people to be thankful for and so instead of wallowing today I'm wishing you all a happy Thanksgiving and hope you have as much to be thankful for as I do!

Also, so I don't sound completely selfish-I'm thankful for all the Veterans who have given their sacrifice to our country so I can write this silly blog without the fear of anything. So thank you.

This year has been a rough year. We’ve had a lot of people close to us pass away in our family and it’s nice that Gretchen (http://secondblooming.typepad.com/second-blooming/2012/11/in-memoriam.html) is giving us an outlet to memorialize them. So here is my In memoriam…
My aunt Karen:
I’ve posted twice about her since she’s passed and even just last week I thought about her and how it’s so strange that she is no longer with us. We weren’t terribly close but close enough that the hole in my heart hasn’t quite healed. She showed perseverance in the last 4 years of her life. She wasn’t supposed to make it that long but she chose to ignore the doctors and do her own thing. In that time she sparked a fire in our family to push through and live your life to the fullest.
My BFF’s mom Janara:
I hadn’t seen Janara in probably 3 years but I have a lot of memories of her. I’ve known her daughter, Camdin, since I was in the second grade and we’ve been best friends since. Even though Camdin and I have drifted in the past few years we still seem to make time for each other when she comes back to town. And in the past few years I’ve tried to be a better friend and I’m vowing to continue to try to be better. I sat in the hospital with Camdin while her mom was in ICU and it was one of the hardest things I’ve ever had to do. It was so important for me to be there for her and even though I didn’t know exactly what was needed, wanted to make myself available to her. Unfortunately we had to say goodbye to her mom and with that came a lot of tears. Since Camdin has gone back home I still don’t always have the right words to say to her but I love her so much and hope she knows that.
And last but not least my little dog Freckles:
I got Freckles when she was a wee, little puppy and I was an almost 8th grader. She made multiple moves with me from my first house to my first college apartment to the next and then to my final house where we live now. She loved chocolate ice cream and French fries. She also loved to sleep between my legs on the bed. Unfortunately my time with her got much smaller after I had babies and then when we were trying to sell our house and then after I had Jacoby she lived with my parents. I always showed her love when we were around her and she was always wagging her tail at the door when she saw me. It was a very sad time when she passed but she lived a good, long (15 years) life and I’m glad she was a part of mine.

Fall. Autumn. Whatever you want to call it, it is upon us. It is absolutely my favorite season EVER. And there is so much to like about it. Not only do we get Halloween and Thanksgiving you can mix in the beginning of Christmas too. Love! Here are just a few things I am loving about fall right now!
|Any and all things pumpkin. Yum!|
|Woot woot! It's RGIII. Aka the savior of the Washington Redskins. I'm just stoked we've won some games this year. And hopefully we'll win a few more before the season is over.|
|Rock Chalk Jayhawk! Basketball season has started.|
|This outfit right here?! So stinking cute. I love fall becuase you can wear cute clothes but not have to have a ridiculously huge coat over all the cuteness. I seriously want this whole outfit.|
|Now that I get to wear real clothes to work I love to see what people can come up with. And this dress right here, with the tights? So cute.|

Today I am thankful for my church. I don't go religiously (haha-get it) but I love that I can go and just be. I also don't believe everything they say but I feel like it's good for me to go and get the message put out and do with it what I can.

1) My hubby. Even though sometimes he drives me batty I'm so thankful for him.
2) Leo. He is the most ridiculous little boy in the entire world. He makes me laugh. He makes me cry but I love him so stinking much.
3) Jacoby. He is teaching me patience. Again. Things in life really change when a baby is thrown in the mix. No matter how much you think you know what you're doing a new baby will just let you know you're wrong!

Halloween started last Friday when we got to go to a trunk or treat at my cousins school in Kansas City. It was so much fun and it gave me a dry run to do the boys makeup.
Then the real deal Holyfield was last night. Fun was had by all even though Jacoby didn't get to eat any candy!
