Absent for a while

As you can tell from the date of my last post I have been absent for a while.  Why you may be asking yourself.  It's really quite simple.  Life happened!  I went back to work and school in August.  I am back in the classroom for my seventh year of teaching second grade.  It doesn't seem possible that this is my seventh year already.  I also went back to school, Northwest, to work on completing my Master's in Education in Reading!  Between going back to work and school and being a mom and being a wife, I have had very little time to do anything else.
Cole continues to amaze me at how intelligent he is.  He is saying things like, "Momma you bootiful!" and "Dat looks perfect!" and "That's terrible!"  I'm constantly amazed at how smart he is already.  He can count to ten (he says eleven for seven but the rest is correct), he's starting to sing his ABC's and he knows the majority of his colors.  We are also working on shapes.  He really is a very funny and smart kid.
Chloe continues to be an amazing baby.  She is an easy smile.  All Michael has to do to get her to smile is say her name and she beams up at him.  When she smiles she uses her whole body.  Everything just wiggles! She is getting closer to being able to sit up on her own but isn't quite there yet.  She did turn five months old this week.  I just can't get over the fact that she is going to be half a year old next month!
Michael and I are preparing for our fifth anniversary next month.  He has something planned that he isn't sharing with me, which has me both excited and nervous.  :)  I'm sure it will be WONDERFUL!
We'll I am going to start getting things ready to go.  We are headed to Haunted Mozingo tonight!
