Dress up

I know the day will come when Gracie will love to parade around the house in my shoes and jewelry (Sawyer already does!), but today I wish I could steal her cute pink boots!

Picture Perfect

I can't get this picture to rotate for some reason and don't have extra time this morning to figure it out...sorry! The boys have been going through about a ream of paper a week with their drawings and books. Jack took it upon himself to teach Sawyer how to draw a person this weekend, and it worked! Here is Sawyer's first drawing of a person (at least the first one I can decipher). Since his lesson, Sawyer has drawn about 50 more people at both home and school. He's quite proud of himself!

We had a fun time at Amazing Acres (pumpkin patch) this weekend with some friends. The boys loved the corn maze, the fast slides, riding the tractors and picking out pumpkins. They REALLY enjoyed this zip line ride, and Grace was in awe of her flying brothers. I think my favorite part of these videos is hearing Sawyer cheer on Jack...he's such a sweet boy!

Grace "hearts" Friday...who doesn't love the weekend!!

Say cheese!

Our budding photographer, Sawyer, documented Grace's first play session in the exersaucer last weekend. The world according to See-Saw...

Kindergarten + Jack = FUN

It looks like the apple doesn't fall too far from the tree in this family...Jack loves math just like his Daddy. He brought home this paper from school the other day that he was working on independently during rest time. His "-" signs mean "=". He'll be balancing my checkbook in no time!

"Oh my Gosh!"

Sawyer's favorite new saying these days is, "Oh my gosh!!" It rolls off his tongue about 20 times a day when he is in awe of something.

In keeping with Sawyer's sense of wonder and excitement, "Oh my gosh" I still find it hard to believe we have a sweet girl who gets to wear cute socks like these...

And cute leggings like these....

OMG...we love Grace Harper Egan!!

Stay away!!

I was missing from the blog world last week because both Sawyer and Jack were sick. Thankfully, they are both feeling back to normal, and Grace seems to have steered clear of the major symptoms.

The Egan family would officially like to tell all germs that they are NOT invited to our house this winter. Germs, take a good look at you really want to mess with him??

You win some, you lose some

Good day for Mario's Tigers of Notre Dame (3/4 of the team featured below) and a great day for the Fighting Irish! The Texas Longhorns on the other get the point.

Sweet on school

Sawyer is super excited about school these days....the friends, art activities, books, songs, the bikes and scooters and of course, his beloved teachers. The 3's class is doing a study of pets currently, and the teachers just recently introduced their class pet. Meet cupcake the guinea pig...he's just one more reason that Sawyer is sweet on school these days!

Say it ain't so!

In the blink of an eye, Grace turned 3 months old this past weekend. In some ways it feels like she was just born yesterday, and in other ways I can't remember our family without her. She truly completes our family, and her smile melts all of our hearts.

These days, Gracie loves kicking around on her play mat, "talking" to her family, hanging out in her Bumbo seat (as pictured below), reading stories like Brown Bear, Brown Bear and Olivia Counts, playing pat-a-cake, watching her brothers interact/play and taking walks in the beautiful fall weather. She is quite the trooper and only protests a little about the crazy schedule of our family.

Happy 3 months, Grace Harper. We love you!

No. I am NOT pregnant! Several people have asked Scott and I recently if Jack and Sawyer are twins. They do look a lot alike these days with their super short hair cuts and Sawyer's growth spurts. They play together like best buddies, too (the highs and the lows).

Looking at this picture from Chicago's Science and Industry Museum, I think it's still pretty clear who the older brother is...and Jack always makes it clear to Sawyer that he is still the biggest man on campus. For now at least....

Daddy Daycare

I started back to my part-time job yesterday, so Scott had his first full day with all three kiddos. He is a brave man did amazingly well...even managed them all at Jack's soccer game. He took this shot of his three charges and sent it to me to lift my spirits at work. Later on in the evening, Scott was sprawled out on his back. I think they tired him out!
