Ahh JP, what are we going to do with you? You have figured out how to work the baby gate in your room (a long time ago now actually) so we taped the gate shut, and then you figured out how to climb over the gate by standing on boxes that we use to hold your toys, so we removed the boxes, and then you figured out how to prop up your mattress over the gate and use that to scale the gate, and then you used your comforter and draped it over the gate as traction, and then you used the door handle (we used to keep your door open) to pull yourself out of your room, and now you can just scale the gate. And what you will do is sneak out of your room in the morning and not wake us up but sneak around the house getting into trouble, like when you snuck into the pantry and took an entire box of chocolate covered pretzels and ate half of the box while hiding behind the couch - where you hide when you are doing something naughty.

Picking up sticks at our favorite mud pile.
This is how we roll these days. I take it for granted because this is "normal" for us but I snapped a quick picture because I never want to forget this. I think I'll look back so fondly on these days even though it's really hard right now.
Ready to eat again. As soon as I say "Mia, do you want to eat?", she runs to the kitchen and either sits at the table or climbs up in her high chair. :)
John Paul started his Catechesis of the Good Shepherd class this year. I'm amazed that he can sit still in the class and pay attention to the teachers so well! The class is ages 3-6 and there is one other 3 year old in the class who is there with her brother, all the other kids are ages 5 and 6. "What did you learn today, John Paul?" "Jesus loves me, and Jesus loves Steven!"
Tired out Dada. All 3 watching a movie. :)
"It's OK, Rosary. Don't cry, I am here. I gonna take care of you. Look, Mama, she smiled at me! Why she do that?"
Making spider cupcakes for Halloween, just the 2 of us. "I make 2 eyes, 2 eyebrows, a mouth and 4 legs."
This kid always wants to "sleep in Mama room". I was trying to get him to take a nap in his room but he wouldn't, so I brought him to our room and he fell right asleep. :) He also always wants to "I want to sleep in my place", which is behind a baby mattress that we prop up against the wall in our room and tuck him in behind it with his pillow and blanket.
