A post of some of our very favorite things...

Favorite November moment so far:
Babies and Mommy- being able to go to the park with no coats (Thank you Grandma! We had a great time with you!)

Favorite Toys:
Calahan-einstein star that lights up and plays music
Brooklyn- spinning wheel on einstein exersaucer
Aidan- blue exersaucer with way too much going on

Favorite Thing to Do:
Calahan-smile and flirt with the ladies
Brooklyn-suck on her bottom lip
Aidan- chew on his fingers

Favorite Features:
Calahan- long beautiful eyelashes and perfectly shaped lips
Brooklyn- chubby cheeks and innocent smile
Aidan- smooth skin and big blue eyes

Who am I kidding? I can't just list one or two things. Everything about each and every one of these babies is my favorite!!

Favorite Smell:
Mommy- Aidan, Brooklyn and Calahan's sweet skin

Favorite Sight:
Babies- bottles
Mommy- BABIES!
Favorite Time of the Day:
Mommy-walking into the nursery after a peaceful night's sleep to smiling babies

Speaking of sleep...
As the book goes (They're All My Favorites) night...there is a clear winner. A numero uno. A child after my heart. This angel sleeps not 10, not 11, but 12-13 hours a night. Straight. Not a peep. THANK YOU CALAHAN! You ARE my favorite at night!!

This week I have been a little bit short on sleep because Aidan and Brooklyn have stuffy noses. I think they may also be teething. We ended up taking Aidan to the doctor yesterday and it turns out he has an ear infection in his right ear. He is on antibiotics and seems to be fine. I think we did pretty well. The babies are just shy of their 7 month birthday and getting their first colds. We also went for our first synagis shot today. Synagis is to help protect the babies from RSV. They will get a shot in each leg for the remainder of the RSV season (ending in March).

A little backpedaling...Halloween was great fun and we were all HAP-PEA! We only went to a couple of houses in our pea pod costumes. Then it was feeding time just as the trick-or-treaters started coming around. The weather was so nice that we fed the babies outside while passing out candy. Thanks to Nana for helping make our first Halloween such fun! We love spending time with our Nana!

We hope all of you are well! Enjoy the pics.
