What could possibly go better together on Thanksgiving than a great family gathering with turkeys and football? Especially when the turkeys are tiny and adorable. 🙂

Max understood fast that football is important in the USA on this day
Simon too did not want to be left out
A big family had gathered
Simon the boy met Simon the dog and one of the Simons wasn’t too happy
A big bath after a long day
Time for a good night bottle
Out shopping on Friday, but not for toasters or TVs, only a few groceries
It was a beautiful day in Winston-Salem and the boys got to spend some time outside.
Max playing in the leaves
Both boys busy with leaves
Simon checked out a Santa hat later that day
Max really had a good time with his yogurt today and it shows.
Last night we discovered that Simon really likes our duvet.
Simon has been taking independent steps for 10 or so days now, but he is doing it with greater frequency and confidence now. Go Simon go
Last year at Halloween Simon and Max were still in the NICU, but what a difference a year makes. Neither boy stayed up for trick or treat activities, but they still were able to experience this annual American tradition.
We had the pumpkin ready a few days prior to Halloween.
Max and Simon inspected the candy meant for the trick or treat activities.

Max was a little blue monster
Both boys seemed to have a good time in their outfits.
