sad bloggin' news.

my computer is suffering from "running better than ever-itis" courtesy of the all new Windows 7. Right now it is running in "paperweight mode". Very, very frustrating.
So, until this problem is fixed i won't be able to blog with any pictures for all of you, as all of my pictures are on my laptop, and seeing that right now when i turn my computer on it immediately crashes.
It's very frustrating.
So until the Windows 7 disc arrives (because apparently the simple "download" was corrupt) I won't be blogging.
It's all very ironic- seeing that I'm writing this all to you via a Mac.

updates.


i sat down to actually write about what these 3 have been up to- and now i sit with writers block!
i am watching the 3 of them watch a movie. it's definitely been a day of more TV, because little Mason is sick with a cold, poor thing is burning up, red cheeks and leaking from her nose. But even sick, she still has a smile on her face for her baby brother as he crawls towards her feet and tries to suck on them.

Henry
My baby is crawling! He still isn't up on all 4's, but he is using his upper body and dragging his lower body behind him. It's so funny, because sometimes his little bum gets up high and he kinda flips himself over. Over the last couple of days I will be doing something and turn and Henry has suddenly moved to being inches away from me.
He is still the sweetest baby. Wherever we go, people continue to comment on just how happy he is. In our church nursery he has quite a following.
We haven't started him on any solids yet, he seems like a nice chubby size to me (not huge by any means) so we'll wait until it seems he wants it a little more. At this age Mason was lunging towards anyone with food. And Henry doesn't quite do that yet.
He still hasn't cut any teeth through his little gums, but he is trying really hard. Putting everything in his mouth and biting down hard.
And blowing spit bubbles! He has found his little voice and his tongue and discovered that he can both spit and speak.
I want to be able to use this blog as a way to remember these things for myself, and i just can't seem to stress enough just how sweet and loving this little boy is already.

Mason



Or as I call her: Trouble.
No, in all seriousness this little girl is quite the mix of both me and Sam. She isn't nearly as Type A as me and her big brother (and her Auntie Jessie) but instead she is my perfect little helper. When baby brother cries- she finds a binky and then she searches out his nigh nigh's and makes sure he is all set up. I've seen her do things like this with other kids. The last time her friend Ellia was over and Ellia was fussing, Mason found Ellia's binky, Ellia's drink cup and Ellia's
little nigh nigh's.
Quite the hostess- making sure her guests are happy.
She's started playing too! We have the Dad and son from the Incredibles (which Mason hasn't seen- soon to be rectified) and Mason walks around with them, calls them "Dada and Brudder" and holds them close to her, talks to them- has them to talk to each other. Sets them up in a line, and really, really plays with them- having them both bang into each other (telling them no) and having them kiss each other.
i love it.
and I love her. she's really starting to talk so much more, and bless her heart, she rambles off nonsense words to you at rapid speed- really believing you understand what she is saying.
Although she does have one new word that is quite clear:
Mine.
usually followed by : Mine brudder. Mine baby.
Precious.
I recently got a new baby carrying device: a Boba. I was so fortunate that the company gave me one for free when I asked them for one...
Anyways, I popped Mason into it as soon as it arrived, and my little girl remembered her baby wearing days immediately, as she nestled her head into my chest and put her fingers in her mouth.
And then immediately started screaming when I took her out.
Both Sam and i took a turn wearing her, and i am so excited for this new way to travel around with her (and as soon as i take pictures- you will see them!)
Mason's other big new news is that she at night when we put her to bed she politely requests "books". She doesn't mind going down at all, as long as she has a few good books to keep her company.
Another reader!
Campbell

Our 3 1/2 year old. He keeps getting smarter everyday. Today we all went on a drive searching for trees with the changing colors. Once he caught on to what we were pointing out to him, every time he saw a beautiful orange and red tree he would shout out "i see colors!". we would have absolute silence in the van, then "i see color!".
He and I are currently working on "at" "ot" "ad" and "om" sounds and words. And he is blowing my mind. I hope to upload a video of him saying this wonderful poem that he and I have memorized.
He really does love seeing his friends at Preschool, but he is still struggling to settle down and follow directions in the big group, he does such a great job with me and learning so i know that it is just going to be a learning adjustment to follow instruction and obey his Sunday School teachers and such.
Campbell is currently obsessed with "fall" as I am teaching him about this fun new season.
Still on the top of his loves are his trains. He just loves playing with them and moving them all over the house. Curious George is his favorite to watch. And if anyone is needing Christmas ideas, did you know you can buy the Curious George PBS episodes on DVD? they have them 8 to a dvd, and i think you can get them at Amazon.... i'm just saying....
Campbell's love for his brother and sister still amaze me. He isn't perfect by any means (but none of us are) but he was made to be a big brother.
Campbell really loves to laugh, and he's laughing right now.
