Our Woodland Halloween

I have a slight obsession with woodland animal themed anything.  This is the theme in the nursery that the girls used and now Caleb.  Since Anna is still in an animal phase, I gave her a few choices and she chose to be a deer.  Haven used an old owl costume of Anna's and Caleb was a fox.  I think I said this last year, but this really may be my last year to get away with having a costume theme.
 Halloween started off with a "Storybook Parade" at the girls' school.  Which means they walked through the halls and got candy. 
Haven with her buddy Emi as Fancy Nancy.
 Aunt Karri invited us over for a fun dinner of mummy hotdogs, ghost bananas, a veggie skeleton and witches brew juice.  Anna helped me make some bones for dessert with pretzels, marshmallows and white chocolate.
 My little woodland creatures.
 All the costumed cousins.
We met up with daddy who threw on some antlers and went trick or treating around our neighborhood.  We always enjoy having a chance to get out and talk to our neighbors.  Sadly, not as many had their lights on this year but thankfully the girls are young enough to be happy after going to just a few houses.  We had to keep an eye on Haven because she was trying to sneak candy along the way and eat it with the wrappers on!

Flower Mound Pumpkin Village

In the beginning of October we went to the sweetest pumpkin patch and had such a fun time as our first big outing as a family of 5.


They had cutouts from every cartoon movie ever made and the girls wanted their picture taken with each one.

2 Months!

Another month of having a little baby in our house has passed by.  I don't take these days, weeks and months for granted.  He has come out of his newborn sleepy phase and is getting stronger and more alert everyday.  

24 inches ~ 94%
15 lbs ~ 87%
41 cm ~ 93%
 He is a flirt and has started smiling and cooing like crazy.  Seems like more than the girls but my memory could be fuzzy.
 Not a big fan of tummy time or being held in the beco!  He will have to learn to like it. :)
 Sleeping 7-8 hours a night and he sometimes takes a paci.
 The newness of him being in the house has not worn off and if he is in the room, he is still the center of attention.
  I love being forced to sit down and hold him to nurse.  If he falls asleep on me, I stay there until I absolutely have to get up!
