Ellie LOVES playing in Solomon's sock basket.  She also loves to pull all the socks out and put them back in.  She crawled in to our room the other day and I couldn't find her for several minutes.  She was so quite.  When I did find her, she was quietly playing with the socks. :)

By the end of October, Ellie is walking across the living room!  She wouldn't do it for the camera very well though.  Our little girl is officially walking!
 
The kids continue to grow too fast!  Khaliel is trying to read all the time like his big brother, wants to help me clean or cook, and tries to teach his baby sister new things.  He is such a sweetheart.  This morning at breakfast, he randomly turned around in his chair and said "Thank you Mommy!"  And twice today, out of the blue, he gave me a hug and said "I love you Mommy."  He completely made my day.  The age of 3 brings on many new challenges as they try to assert themselves but can't quite do things by themselves yet, but it also has its moments like these. :)
Apollos is continuing to do so well in school.  He has 3 "best friends" named Jareth, Carson, and Asher that he plays with a lot.  He has also decide he now wants to build robots when he gets older.  He is always trying to come up with new things he can invent.  He also still LOVES to color and draw.
Ellie is still little for her age, but makes it known that she is 13 months old!  She will sign for what she wants but will only say the word "Mama" right now.  She wants to be doing exactly what her brothers are doing and eat what they are eating.  She is also no longer milk intolerant!!  She is still nursing, but is slowly learning to use a sippy cup.  She knows what she wants and is a very determined little girl.  She is also very loving.  She loves to cuddle and snuggle.
