We got some new room decor!!!! New railroad signs to go with the train pic that daddy took (and our train bedspreads). πŸš‚Β Slowly but surely decorating their room.Β

Target has been a real disappointment in the Halloween area lately. They really need to get with it. We have been counting down for MONTHS now. These boys are READY!!!! So we finally settled on some dollar bin vampires to paint. It’ll due for now. I guess.

IMG_6709

Sometimes superheros have to play their own intro songs 😜

Soooooooo I don’t know how much longer we’ll be able to keep the blog up friends:/ After Thomas is born, I honestly don’t know if I can remember. I can barely remember now!!!! We cannot express to you guys in words how much your weekly devotion to our boys means to us. It’s such an honor that you take time out of your busy lives to read about our kids-and have for years. That truly means so much to us. I will try to keep up with it for as long as I can but I didn’t want anyone disappointed when I didn’t post. Ben & I both have Instagram accounts (where we only post pics of our kids) so you’re welcome to reach out and keep up with the boys that way. Our handles are mykatabor and ben_jamin_tabor. Ben also has the facebooks too if that’s more you’re thing πŸ˜‰ Β But for now, here are double trouble…..

IMG_7001

Learning to count and roll money with Doc

IMG_6673

Practicing writing numbers and letters

IMG_6674

Tuck working real hard

IMG_6675

Charlie working real hard (Yes, with his right hand. We don’t know either). They both gave it a good hour of their attention this time and tried the whole, entire time. I was really impressed.

IMG_6692

Charlie reading my “What to Expect When You’re Expecting” book. 😜 I hope the pictures in it didn’t scar him.

IMG_6695

Playing Jinga with Aunt Sara. So since Charlie was playing and has ZERO patience, how long do you think this game lasted?! 😜

IMG_6758

A little light reading before school

IMG_6988

Watch out! These two are hittin the roads

IMG_6605

“Quietly” doing a “hard” puzzle at school. Instead of napping. Can’t decide if this is good or bad.

IMG_6607

Would you fall for this pout face?!Β 

IMG_6610

Counting their reward tickets to see if they have enough for a reward

IMG_6614

They get so excited and proud of themseves when they do. I love it.

IMG_6619

Charlie really gets the reward system. He really tries hard to get the rewards and always saves up to get a “big” reward.

IMG_6640

These boys’ sweet aunt and uncle bought them “big brother” scrubs to wear at the hospital when Thomas is born. I had to pry them off of them tonight to wash them. They have played doctor NON STOP. Super cute.

My superhero lunchdate

IMG_6546

I took my little supermen to Firehouse Subs for the first time. They had the biggest time!!! They asked 9,762 questions and we read every sign in the building but they really enjoyed it.

So this was two different nights of cashing in behavior rewards. One child went immediately to sleep. One child stayed up asking a million questions and ended up laying in my bed watching videos of the eclipse with me. I’ll let you guess who was who.😜

IMG_6565

My “worker” in his tighty, short pjs 😍

IMG_6567

I’m getting WAY emotional about them not being “babies” anymore. Love when they still act little……and sweet. Makes my heart melt.

IMG_6748

Soooo their daddy and Grumps took these boys out to play soccer today. To say they were excited is a total understatement.

Action shots……well, while it lasted 😜
