~ Favorite Movies/Shows: Octonauts, Spiderwick Chronicles, Paranorman, Indiana Jones movies, anything with action/creepy.
~ School: can count to 100 but needs help with some numbers (50, 60, 70, 80, 90), writes Adrian Lynn Noel on all of her work at school, knows our new address in Polk City, Can write alphabet upper and lowercase letters but needs a little help with U & Q.
~ Adrian is an artist, an athlete, a sweet and loving big sister, and a silly heart ~

December 1st 2013 was when we started living in a rental townhome in Ankeny, because we sold our home in Polk City. There were no rentals available in Polk City at that time. Yesterday they finally broke ground on our new home back in Polk City. We have missed living back there so much! We will be the 1st house in the new Lost Lakes housing development close to the West edge of town. I will try and take periodic pics to add to this posting for the house.
Adrian's 1st Day of Kindergarten was Aug. 22nd. She was a little nervous arriving but did great! Adrian gets dropped off daily by Dad and picked up by Mom at Megan's (her old in-home daycare lady). Adrian rides the bus daily to Megan's house. Adrian is already busy and in the the full swing of things.
Tuesday and Thursday is running club in the morning. Thursday from 4:30-5:30 is Tap & Ballet class.
I am 2 months late in posting Lawson's 15 month appointment stats. "The Big Guy" is growing up so fast...we feel like he looks like a 2 year old already.
Weight: 27 lbs. (94%)
Height: 33.2 Inches (98%)
HC: 18.2 Inches (72%)
Some things about Lawson:
~ He is a super cute cuddly boy :) Melts my heart how sweet he can be.
~ He is the class biter at school.
~ He doesn't have a wide vocabulary but has a ton of personality.
~ He loves tractors, books, dogs, and any sort of moving animal.
~He eats anything, except we have noticed he doesn't like tacos or meals with ground beef.
~He loves his big sister and for the most part they play well together.
~ He loves running around yelling with is sister...they run laps together around the townhouse.
~ He is a good napper/sleeper and is attached to his 2 blankets.
It has been forever since I have posted anything. So I am going to do better and try to catch up on my posts. The below pics Mitch and I took this past weekend at the orchard. We went both Sat for 4 hours and 3 on Sunday.
The kids had a good time, especially since we don't have a yard because we are renting. The orchard will be our "Fall yard" I guess.
The BIG GUY turned one last Wednesday!! He is growing up so fast...this year has just flown by. Lawson is taking on average 3-4 on his own without holding on for support. With extreme coaxing he will take more. He has figured out how to open his bedroom door and our pantry door! So it is a matter of time before he realizes he can get into his sisters room! Lawson has also learned how to open the dvd player to get the little tray to come out. Lawson (aka: lamp crusher) has managed to break 1 floor lamp and 1 table lamp (just broke out the light bulb).
Lawson was moved up to the 1yr room 2 weeks now and is doing good getting used to only 1 nap and less bottles. He still gets 2 a day so we have to work on eliminating those in the upcoming weeks.
