Ivan turned 6 months on Tuesday! Wow, how time flies by when you are having fun! He is the best little baby, not like Elle wasn't. He is just always content, laughing and talking up a storm. We had his 6 mths photos taken today and I can't wait to see them.

I was going through old photos today and came across these. I wanted to share with you the differences between Elle and Ivan when they were both 3 months. You will have to wait for Ivan's 6 mths ones. Enjoy!

WOWEE! So I finally figured how to get into my blog to update. For the past month, my computer would not let me get in.

I have a lot to catch you up on! I took the kids to Ohio for two weeks at the end of September. We had a really fun time. The plane ride there was not bad at all, the flight was not full. Ivan got his own seat, which worked out great.

I had a wedding to attend of my dear friend Tracy. Tracy and I have known eachother since kindergarten or even before. We lived just one house away from eachother; which meant we were always together! The wedding was absolutely gorgeous and the reception was at a winery. Her are some photos from her wedding.

After the wedding, I met up with my aunt, cousin and her kids at the zoo. It was one of the windiest days, but it turned out to be so much fun. We spent like 5 hours there, not one of our kids had a tantrum and we saw pretty much every animal. It really was fun! Ivan met his second cousins for the first time.

I met up with some friends from high school. The four of us all have kids so we had a playdate! Elizabeth, Annamarie and I all have daughters around the same age; they played so well together. Kelli and I have kids that should have been a week apart, but that was not how they wanted to come out. Her daughter and Ivan met for the first time. It was really cute.

We then ventured to Patricks parents house. Its always relaxing there, we just hang out and talk.

My sister and I had been wanting to go to an apple orchard to pick apples. However we went to a pumpkin patch. We went on a hayride, fed the animals and viewed scarecrow making. The kids swang and did not want to get down, I totally need to get them a swingset!

My mom had a brunch and most of our family and her friends came over. It was really great seeing everyone and having them meet Ivan. Well for a minute or two, he slept most of the time everybody was there.
