What to do?

Ok...I'm at a stand still.  My "free" blog is trying to make me pay a monthly fee to upload anymore pictures.  Anyone else come across this issue?  It's not a big fee it's just annoying...I'm thinking about making a new blog and starting fresh.  Any objections out there?  Speak now or forever hold your peace because that's likely what I may do unless you, my blog friends, won't be able to find me?!?!

Until I decide here's a brief update...

Halloween has come and gone along with Thanksgiving.  We had 3 cute babies dressed up for Halloween this year, Mickey and Minnie Mouse and their pumpkin.  Pictures to follow!

Underwear and panties have been purchased and we are toying with the idea of potty training...we'll get serious after the holidays...kinda like we are going to get serious about giving up those paci's!

Violet turned 4 months on the 18th and we have her 4 month check up and vaccines on Monday.  I'll post and let you know her stats then but I'm thinking she's a good 15+ pounds!  I've been giving her some spoon feedings here and there the past week and today for the first time she tried pears.  She enjoys it...but I almost think more is coming out then going in?!  Her bottom middle left tooth has officially broken through the gum!    Doesn't this seem a little early?!  Vivian had her 2 bottom teeth right before she was 6 months and I thought that was early!  Violet drools a lot and gnaws on anything she can get in her mouth.  She's still in size 2 diapers in the day but size 3 at night.  She just can't seem to give up that middle of the night feed but in all honesty I've yet to push it.  I hope once she starts with a little solid food it will magically disappear.  A mama can hope, right?!  She puts herself to sleep easily and takes 3 naps per day and goes to bed around 7:30 and gets up around 7:00ish.  She is still a very good baby.

Oliver, Matt and Violet each had a touch of the stomach bug recently.  Oliver was down for about a day with about a 3 hour episode of lots of puking...let's just say we hope next time he gets the stomach bug he will learn to hit a buck, toilet, bowel or towel.  Violet had a handful of days where she wasn't really interested in eating and had some issues in the diaper area.

We hosted Thanksgiving here again and my wonderful husband deep fried a turkey for the first time and it was a success!  We have more blessings then we can count but at the top of our list of thanks is most definitely our 3 babies.
