6 months old



It's hard to believe but Tuesday marked 6 months in DT's life already.

To celebrate, I tried to give him a little photo shoot in the backyard. It wasn't the most sucessful.

I call this series: Grandma's Camera




Look, I have two teeth!


Autum Nap


DT is a sweet little guy. He could sleep more at night, but that's the only improvement I can think of. Hahahaha.

He just got his 2 bottom front teeth
He can hold his own sippy cup and sucessfully drink, most of the time
He can scoot on his botom on the floor to get something he wants
He can sit up without falling down, most of the time
He can take all the rings off his ring tower by himself
He can babble
He can laugh, a lot
He loves his big brother
He always leaks out of his diaper at night, darn side sleeper!
He can roll both ways easily now
He still doesn't like being on his stomach too much
He drinks about 12oz of EBM while mom is at work
He is just starting solids, and none to soon for his liking!
His thighs are so big the NP had to get the bigger needles for his vaccinations at his 6mo appointment
He's sweet!

We love him!

Oh, and his stats from his 6 month appointment.
Weight 19.7 lbs 81%
Height 26 3/4" 62%
Head circumference 45cm 82%

Never Roam Alone

We installed some new garden decor.


And every garden gnome needs a Pedro. Right ?!?!?


I decided I needed a costume, too. Why should kids get all the fun? So since DT had me up at 5am this morning, I had time to scour the internet and find this idea. Then DT and I hit the stores to get some supplies and got this done in time for a 3pm party. TT just had to get makeup ... since he was in need of a haircut and already had a "Vote for Pedro" t-shirt languishing in the closet, he was set. :D

Pumpkin Patch

Immediately after LT's brithday madness comes the insanity known as "Sew-Your-Kids-Costumes" in time for Halloween. I started last Sat night and finished this Sat night. Not bad! About 5 hours for LTs and 2 hours for DTs, not including the shopping for the supplies. I'm especially proud of LT's shirt as I had to construct the pattern. I'm glad I finished them because we're pretty busy the next few weekends and we definitely wanted to go to the pumpkin patch! It's our 3rd year at this pumpkin farm.

The pirate and his parrot






Don't you just love cutouts?



The Whole Family (for once!)


The parrot flies!


LT took Grandma on the train and on the "Bootsie the Bee" path through the cornstalks. As he reasoned, she hadn't seen it before and Mom & Dad have. It was such a beautiful day!

I was hoping to see the pumpkin weigh-off, but it's next Saturday and we have our street block party. Can't miss that!

Present Surprise

After everyone left, we gave LT his present.
Eyes closed

What?

Wow!

Inspecting the present

Yes!

And finally testing it out


Meanwhile, DT was learning how to float in the hot tub thanks to Great Auntie J!
