Soccer time

It's fall soccer time and John is an official member of the New York Red Bulls at the YMCA. Friday night we went to Academy and bought all his gear...shin guards, shorts, socks and most importantly the cleats!!! And wouldn't ya know, my child picks out silver cleats!

I pushed him to look at the less expensive pairs  but he HAD to have the silver ones...he got lucky b/c they didn't have the less expensive pairs in his size anyway.

John and I both were a little apprehensive pulling up to the fields...I didn't know if he would know anyone on his team. He does sooo much better if he knows at least one other child. And I really wanted him to play and interact b/c I knew he would just love it.

Well the Lord heard my of his best friends from school, Mason was on his team. And the best part is Mason's grandpa is the coach! Needless to say John was SUPER excited. However he didn't play...but he did get out on the field. Baby steps!

Maybe next week?
John & Mason

Halloween has come early in the Spengel house

John got his Halloween costume yesterday and as you can see he loves it. He took the mask off long enough to eat breakfast. Crazy kid!

2 months old...already?

I can't believe Wyatt is already 2 months old. How did this happen??? I've really enjoyed my time at home with him. I'm not looking forward to going back to work on the 27th. It's going to be so hard to leave him. John, however is super excited about him being at the same school. He's already informed his teacher that he might need to go check on "brotha".

Wyatt, at your 2 month check up you weigh 13lbs and are 23 1/2 inches long. You are such a happy little boy...always smiling and laughing. You eat every 2 1/2 hours on schedule and are wearing 3-6 month clothes. You love to watch John play and John loves to watch you watch him. You are such a sweet little guy and we can't imagine our lives without you.
