The girls can count to 15 usually, today Shiloah did 13 and Hannah did 11. Shiloah is much more interested in numbers than Hannah, and Hannah knew all 20 of her colors by Shiloah's age -- Shiloah sometimes knows about 10 colors. It's amazing how different they are!

I am so thrilled to report that my restrictions have been lifted... the second clot is basically gone and, with the baby growing and developing so well, the doctor gave me permission to resume normal pregnant activity. It was very hard to be restricted and I didn't exactly follow the directions perfectly, but I did limit myself quite a bit. So, the fetus is viable now and we are just praying that she will stay in my belly for 16 more weeks!!

Here's our new place! It's been painted and our stuff is here. Hannah's room is pink, Shiloah's is a bluish-greenish color, ours is dark aqua and the dining room will be red and white (the bottom portion was just added by my dad and will be solid white eventually, didn't he do a fabulous job?!). Now it just needs the finishing touches.

The girls dressed up as mice for Halloween. It was prompted by Hannah's discovery of the Minnie Mouse dress on Thursday, so of course she had to be Minnie Mouse on Friday! Shiloah's newest thing is to be into everything Hannah is into. This creates all sorts of new challenges around the house for Mommy and Daddy!
Instead of trick-or-treating we sat on our front porch and gave out candy. The girls loved it because we got to see lots of cool costumes. I've never in my life had that many trick-or-treaters visit my house. We live in a great area for getting candy on Halloween! Shiloah had a much harder time giving up her candy than Hannah but we all had a lot of fun!

It certainly has been a long time since any photos were posted! I have some more videos and photos but they are on David and Vicki's computer currently and I"ll have to post them another time.
We're finally "settled" into our new house! It's great to be here. We love living in this neighborhood -- we are 1/2 a block away from the grocery store and movie theatre and ice cream shoppe. It's so nice. Shiloah can walk the whole way and she loves to do so.
These pictures are of the girls eating some cookie dough I made the other day, they loved having their beaters. And we painted pumpkins for Halloween, too. Hannah spent about 30 minutes on just one little pumpkin and painted every square inch of it. Shiloah had a different approach, much more random, but it also included tasting the paint and having Mommy do some, too.
