Sweet kids

I don't know if this has to do with it, but since Ruby started preschool, she has been very sweet and helpful. Maybe she's just growing up! She still has her naughty moments, but she is turning into a very caring little girl. She helps take care of Reid, is willing to clean up and do chores, says "I love you" to all of us, gives us snuggles, etc. We love it!!

Reid is still not doing any better in the bowel department since we went off of dairy. We're going to do it one more week, then move on to gluten... trying to figure it out, poor guy. It will be nice to be able to have cheese again though. I'm not looking forward to having to buy gluten free bread, oats, pasta, and everything in between. It's definitely more expensive. But it will be worth it if it helps his gut health!
 She has been taking him to the potty when she goes, and is trying to teach him. It's so cute! He likes to sit on the potty, but doesn't go on it yet. Hopefully soon. At least he's interested. I'm not going to push it like I did with Ruby, because that backfired majorly.
 I took Reid to an appointment for OHP. He was so cute.
 I brought him some cars and things to play with, but he had the most fun just playing with this rolling chair the whole time! Hahaha He's so different than Ruby with things like this.
 Both kids love apples.
 She was in time-out, so she called Reid over and said, "Reid, have a seat. Tell me about what you saw at Costco while I was at Preschool."
 Kissing Daddy! <3
 We got them some new jammies at Costco and they want to wear them every night. Reid fits nicely in 2T, but I got Ruby size 6! they're a little big, but not by too much.
 Story time!
 Playing Steam Roller.
They had so much fun with the measuring tape. Ruby says, "Dad, this ladder is 46 pounds!" 
 Date night! We found a dairy free bakery. It was okay, but not as good as regular. Hahaha
 Board game morning.
 And movie time.
 He likes to sit on the big potty.
 It's so fun to do her hair.
They love their little sibling already. :) They both like to kiss and hug my tummy. 
Reid doesn't know what nursing is since we fed Penelope with a bottle. He'll learn soon though!
 More game time! We love Sorry. Ruby's pretty good at it.
 We got these beautiful shelves from the Pullen's. They are fantastic! Andy worked really hard at getting them all set up and anchoring them to the walls.
 Reid LOVES tractors/mowers/anything with a steering wheel.
 And he also loves to help me cook. Making granola here.
 He got his snack, then got his tiny chair and brought it to the table. Haha!
 I had put the egg carton on the counter, then walked out of the kitchen for a minute... then walked back to this! At least he got a container out instead of cracking it onto the floor! Smart guy. :) Too bad it was a dirty container or we could have still used the egg. But at least we had no mess to clean up.
 Mmmmm.... water kefir! We've all been loving our new probiotic drink.
 They played Sorry together, although Reid doesn't really know what he's doing. Ruby decided to only play with the Sorry cards and took the rest out. Didn't get too far!!
 On Tuesday we went to Two's Together at the library. Reid was a little shy and only did some of the motions.
 Ruby loved it though!
 Helping Reid out.
 Someone found my purse... 
 They've been wanting to sit by each other at meals. It's cute.
 Playland was closed at Fred Meyer, so I kept the kids with me to get my ring cleaned. We had fun looking at the sparkly rings!
 He got the box of Life and pretended the word search was his computer keyboard! Hahaha
 Silly kids!
 He comes into our room in the mornings to snuggle.
 Poor guy has had a cough just at nights. The first night it was a very croupy cough, which was no fun. It's better now. And he's the cutest thing ever.
 Playing his guitar while he sat on the heater vent to get warm.
 I asked him what he wants for Christmas, and he said "a blue spoon." Then he proceeded to get out all of his blue spoons that we already have.
 He ate almost this whole apple with almond butter!
 Ruby had a field trip to the Fire Station down the street on Wednesday. She had a lot of fun! And it's great that they're learning about fire safety.
 Lunch with my boy.
 This happened...
 She loves our Dinner Winner game! It really helps her eat food that she doesn't love.
 Snuggles with Daddy.
 Sleepy guy. He has been refusing to nap on school days, so three times this past week. The only plus is that they go to bed super early on non-nap days.
 Like son, like father. Hahahahaha!
 More cooking. Ruby said she wants to be a cook when she grows up. And Reid regularly says, "You're a good cooker, Mommy."
 We all got a terrible night of sleep on Wednesday night. Reid was up coughing and crying every 15 minutes, so we finally brought him into our bed at around midnight. He moves around a lot in his sleep and flails his right arm... so I got hit in the face about 12 times. So we decided to make the best of a tired day and went for a nature walk in the rain.
 We walked down the street to collect lots of leaves for a craft project.
We found some huge ones! And they each had their bag of cashews for snack. 
 We love our nature area down the street. We explored the creek and found lots of different kinds of leaves.
 He loves to look in parked cars at the steering wheels.
 Then we did our craft project, painting leaves! They made fun outlines on the paper.
 I even painted my own cheek on accident...
 We had a lot of fun.
 He was tired...
 Then we made some monsters.
