Catching up

It's been a little while, so I thought I'd fill you all in on what's going on "Up North". For those that don't know, I had knee surgery a week ago. I had my mom here to help and she was a true blessing. She's back in GA and we miss her! I'm hobbling around now, without crutches, and doing pretty well. I'm very lucky that Kyle loves to read - we spend a lot of time just sitting and reading books which is easy on me. In other exciting news, Kyle has started walking! He took his time and we enjoyed him being a 'hipster', but he is now a full blown toddler. He's also in the middle of dealing with evil teeth. About a month ago, his lower gums were swollen like jawbreakers. We thought for sure he'd be getting his molars any day, but of course they're still not here. His upper molars did come in, making the tooth count jump to 9 - 6 on top and 3 on the bottom. He certainly doesn't follow the book with teeth making. We've had some fun sleepless nights these last few days, so we're hoping the 3 bottom ones hurry up and arrive soon!! In the midst of all the craziness, Kyle still amazes us - he's pretty smart and we're wondering where that came from...He has this little people zoo set with 26 animals and I can ask him for a specific animal and he hands it to me. Even the walrus, quail, and uriel (whatever that is). We're definitely in Fall mode up here. The weather is getting cold (we're missing the south!!) and the Halloween decorations are out. Kyle has found a favorite white pumpkin that he carries around. Hope you all are enjoying Fall!

Kyle's brown bear - he loves him!
Our little walker!
The bookworm.
Kyle will not be a tiger for Halloween this year!
15 months old!!
