This morning Isak was insistent that he have the "bubble gun", aka...the ginormous bubble blower my sister bought him for his b-day this past year. I keep losing batteries for it and he really makes quite a mess inside with it so I try to hide it...obviously unsucessfully. So he settled instead for me blowing bubbles and "fighting" them with a fork. He kept saying, "poke the bubbles, fight the bubbles" over and over again, while battling them with the fork. Lucy watched in amazement...
My dad's b-day was this past Friday and Lucy wore her party dress for the occasion. We had lots of fun and had some decilious chocolate cake.

For all those who are interested, here is a video of Lucy crawling and talking with her mouth closed, one of her favorite activities, and just plain being crazy.
Lucy went in for her 9 month appt yesterday...she's 30 inches tall (just over 95%), 19lbs 30z, and her head is in the 90%. What can I say...we grow 'em big.

Lucy turned 9 months yesterday, she has 6 teeth although most of the time chooses to smile and talk with her mouth closed so we never get to see all of them. Although , I can assure you that they are definitely still there. I took this picture of her upside down in an attempt to show all of her teeth. I think Isak was getting his first tooth at this age so the fact that she already has 6 is amazing to me. She is crawling everywhere and loves to follow Isak around and try to do whatever he is doing. Isak is not a big fan of this and still refuses to call her by her name, instead referring to her as "baby" or calling her the cats names, "kiki" or "Sam". I'm hoping this changes before they get into school together.
Kevin and Isak playing on the tire in the backyard. Kevin apparently really wants this tire someday in our backyard, and since it looks like we won't be living far away, perhaps we can just roll it down the road.

Yes, the little stinker has started pulling herself up on Everything she can get her hands on. Lucky for me she doesn't have much balance yet so I don't think she will walk anytime soon but I can't believe she's already big enough to be doing this! I just found out my WA nurse's license was activated so I will probably start working soon as well which I am looking forward to.

As for everything else, we are trying to get a house here in Othello that was under foreclosure and is a pretty good deal. All we have left is the inspection this week so hopefully all will go well. It needs some work...well, a lot of work...it will give us plenty of weekend projects for the next 5 years. But its in a nice neighborhood across from the park (and the pool) so it should be fine. Hopefully everything goes through like its suppose to!

This year halloween was pretty low-key...our costumes were packed away and I realized my kids were too little to know what the heck was going on. So I decided it would be a waste of time to put a ton of work into their costumes. I made them super heroes, complete with capes, shorts, boots and identifying letters. It worked. They refused to sit still for any pictures and Isak had to be bribed. Lucy is getting really wiggly now that she can crawl and lunges for everything she wants, Isak is starting to get annoyed I think. Anyway, we took them to the trunk or treat and Isak had fun getting candy although I think all the costumes and people kind of scared him.

Isak liked people dropping candy in his bucked but didn't really get why he couldn't eat it right away. He had a meltdown (s) before bedtime and I'm guessing it was all the sugar.

Here he is nicely posing for one picture, he ripped of his cape (darn velcro), but you gotta love the optimus prime boots.

So I just wanted a few decent pictures of the kids together in their costumes. This didn't happen. Shortly after this was taken, Isak got in trouble and it was discovered he had pooped up his shirt and lucy almost flipped off the couch (I caught her).
