A month and a half catch up!

Holy doodle! ( this is what my Nana says and it gets me laughing every time. )

It's been over a month!
So let's jam this is quickly shall we?
I got a job at our midwife center!! How exciting! Tomorrow is my first day there alone. I open, close, answer all questions! I'm excited and a little terrified!

We're going to be moving. My mom is moving to Guelph and right now my Nana lives with her. So my Nana is left with no place to go. Which I think tells a lot about my mother, that's a whole different story. My Nana wanted to move in with us and we don't have the space ( we don't have enough for us ) so what shall we do? Move. No doubt about it. My Nana is the greatest woman you'd ever meet and I'd do all I can for her.

We have a puppy! An Olde English Bulldogge. He's quite the rascal. We love him to bits and probably more if he'd stop all the biting! He was actually born the day of our wedding! Quite the coincidence. His name is Leopold Montgomery.

Halloween was great. Mike, the boys, Leopold and I all dressed up and went trick or treating with Geoff ( Collin's dad ). Just like every year. Vaughn was pretty into it this year.

The kids are still as nuts as ever and seem to be more defiant by the day but we'll survive.

Now I am off to bathe Vaughn and then help Collin with his homework!
Family Halloween!
He walked a little too much.
He passed out before I could
get the costume off.
The giraffe and the shark!

Day we brought him home.
3 days after we got him

a few months back

bath time fun
last week
his first summer
just a few weeks old. Still had big blue eyes.
Vaughn's birth
Collin meeting his new "enemy" lol
Still a belly boy

Today my littlest man turns 3!
And for once..I can't wait ahah. The 2's have indeed been " terrible " hopefully 3 will bring more happiness!
3 years ago I phoned his dad and said " I think you better get here...I think I'm going into labour"
and about 45-50 mins later we were holding little Giovanni ( nameless then).
We couldn't decide between Jack and Giovanni so we waited until we saw him. He was big, dark and had A LOT of hair. Giovanni it was. He came into this world with such force and wasn't slowing down for anyone and he's been the same way ever since.

Happy birthday to my very spirited, beautiful, crazy little man! We love you.

The sunset was something to die for the other night.
I sat out back snapping away
watching it change
for 30 mins.


Today I actually had to carry Vaughn out of a store while he screamed and kicked me...that was fun.
I went looking for a new dress for a wedding I am going to tomorrow. I was hoping to find something nice but not pricey and have it for occasions like this. They were not allowing that to happen. They were " being kids" I know...but they were being so defiant. It's hard some times. They were RUNNING through the store and no matter how many times I told them politely to play beside me...So when they screaming was time to leave. Even with my friend in tow no one was listening. I was definitely grateful to have her help but...needless to say...I'll be wearing something old tomorrow. And I just now realized I forgot to get nylons...poo!

I got the oats I've been needed to make some apple crisps. Collin's grandma went apple picking and brought us a bag. She is literally one of the greatest people I have in my life. I love Geoff's family. They all treat me so so well I don't feel like the " ex-gf " of their son. They treat me like I am very much still a part of their family. They treat Vaughn like a grandson and he calls them " grandma and grandpa " . They're even really nice to Mike.
So possibly tonight depending on whether I fall asleep early or not...I will be making apple crisp if not ...maybe sunday sounds like a good time.

Collin and I splashed in puddles, went the the Speakeasy where they make the most wonderful breakfast all day, then we fed the ducks and took a little walk.
I wasn't ready to come home but I needed to be back before Vaughn's nap was done so he didn't have to wake his daddy who works midnights on Sunday.
I love my Collin days.

The house of ill

Today I had to keep Collin home from his second day of school.
Everyone here has a cold and the tot.lers have fevers.
So the boys spent the day snuggling on the floor infront of the t.v
or in my bed while I read.
When Vaughn was feeling a little better I had him help me with a casserole dinner.
Collin soaked in the tub and Vaughn and I baked.
Chocolate chip banana bread.
I've never made it before. It's done but still too hot.
