HAPPY HALLOWEEN

Candy? Yes, please! But we didn't really get any as there was no trick-or-treating for the Vincelli family. Although we did have fun handing out candy to all the adorable little cuties who ran our doorbell!

We'll save Will & Eli's first official trick-or-treating for next year when they are both walking! Crazy to think that will be their third Halloween already!

And even if we had planned on trick-or-treating, that wouldn't have happened as Elijah had a fever and was miserable. (He was sick on his 1st Birthday too and now on Halloween. It's just not fair, Eli!) Poor little monkey. He was not happy at all and especially not in his costume!

This photo captures some of Elijah's "happiness"...


But Will was lovin' being a bear!


"Waaahhhhh!!! Get me out of this!" (Maybe he wanted to be the bear?)


"Yippee!! Can I wear this to bed? And tomorrow too. And the next day and the next day!"


The happy Bear picking on the sick Monkey.


There was just no way we were going to get a good photo of them together tonight.


Maybe we'll try for some happier photos when Eli is feeling better...

HAPPY HALLOWEEN! Hope you all had a spooktacular day!

Elijah's First Steps

Elijah took his first steps on October 18th! Way to go, big boy Eli! But we didn't get it on video because I was at a friend's house. This video is of Eli walking last night. He's getting braver!

PREGNANCY AND INFANT LOSS REMEMBERANCE DAY


Today (and as I do and pray for everyday) I'm remembering and honoring all those precious babies gone too early who are dancing with Jesus in Heaven and pray for their mommies and daddies who mourn their sweet angels. I pray they keep holding on to until that day when they are reunited together again forever in heaven.

1 in 4 women experience a miscarriage in their lives. That means that every single day in the US, 2,000 women lose a baby to pregnancy/infant loss. That’s 700,000 a year, a quarter of all females in this country. The loss of a child sadly seems to be an incredibly taboo “hush-hush” subject in our society. Women are often forced to suffer in silence. But a day like today is helping to change that. You are not alone! You are loved. I am here for you and so many others are here for you!

Today is a special day to reflect on the loss, yet embrace the love. Today is honoring those babies who passed on during a miscarriage, an ectopic pregnancy, a stillbirth, or as a young infant. While these babies’ lives were so brief, they were also very meaningful. Every life, no matter how brief, forever changes the world.

God bless you, precious angel babies, you are so very loved.

I have many friends who have experienced miscarriages and/or infant loss. I will name a few below to honor them and their babies today. (Please forgive me if I should happen to leave out any names because I know I cannot think of each and every name at this moment. Know that I do pray for you.)

Niki, Cassidy, Kim, Debby, Heather, Heidi (twin babies Charlie & Savannah), Nicoleen, Angie (baby Hope), Jill, Patty, Rebecca, Tessa, Shannon, Bethany, Katie, Lori, Lindsey, Emily, and Jenny

Please go to www.october15th.com for more information. "Remembering Our Babies" was created to provide support, education and awareness for those who are suffering or may know someone who has suffered a miscarriage, an ectopic pregnancy, a still birth, or the loss of an infant.

1 YEAR, 1 MONTH, & 1 DAY OLD

No, Eli doesn't have a redneck smile, there are cheerios in his mouth! This was keeping them entertained for a few minutes, so we were all happy. And yes, I let them eat off the floor. (If you would have told me even 6 months ago that I'd eventually let the babies eat off our floor, I wouldn't have believed you.) I've entered a whole new stage of mommyhood! :) Yippee for me.

Happy 13 Months, Will & Elijah!

How much longer am I allowed to call you my babies? I know people say once you are one year old you become a toddler. But I don't believe it. You are still my babies! I consider 18 months to be a toddler, so I still have 5 more months of babies...

Although I must admit, I'm really enjoying watching you become little people and saying goodbye to the "baby stage"! I am really looking forward to your toddlerhood even though everyone tells me not too because you'll be running in opposite directions and talking back. (But I don't think they understand that I am not really a "baby person" at all.) But I love you BABIES both with all my heart and I will probably always want to call you just that...my babies. I mean, is it really as cute to say, "Hi toddlers!" instead of "Hi babies!"?? I don't think so! :)
