Halloween and Fall Fun

We did lots of fun fall things in October!  Unfortunately Halloween was a rainy evening, but we made the best of it.  It was fun coordinating the boys' costumes this year...we'll see how long they let me get away with that!

My 3 Ninja Turtles!!

Bennett with the Ninja moves!

Our street hosted the block party for our side of the neighborhood, and somehow my neighbor and I ended up in charge of it!  We decided to put up a couple of tailgating tents in case of rain, we ordered tons of pizza, and everybody brought sides and drinks.  It turned out great, despite the rain!
Ready to trick or treat!

The dads braving the rain to get some candy for the boys!

A dance party before the rain picked up again.

And then it was a monsoon.

We ate pizza and hung out until the rain let up.

And then they headed out to trick or treat!

Crystal and I decided to stay dry with Parker and Will.

They knew exactly what to do!

My cute skeletons after a fun night!

Bennett also got to dress up for the fall carnival at his school one day.

And our church had some great pumpkin photo ops that we took advantage of one Sunday morning!

My 3 pumpkins!

Time to carve pumpkins!

Bennett just wanted to draw with marker on his pumpkin!

Our 3 "masterpieces".  The one on the far left is supposed to be a P.  Not so much!

Sweet Parker ready for a morning of fun at Blessington Farms!

I got my workout in!

And the boys did too!

The barrel train

Mimi was in town for a few days!


Thankfully Mimi was there to take them in the reptile house!

And we ended our super fun morning with the petting zoo!

I can't believe Thanksgiving is already next week!

Parker at 9 Months

What a fun month!  I can't believe Parker is 9 months old!  His sweet, busy personality is really starting to come out!

Stats: 19 lbs 9 oz 48%
30.5 in 99%
Tall and skinny!

Eating: He is still just drinking bottles!  7 oz at 7:00am, 10, 1:00pm, 4:00 and 7:15.

Sleeping: He sleeps great at night!  7:30-7:00.  His morning naps are still cat naps on the go.  And his afternoon nap hasn't been quite as long these last few weeks so his bedtime has gotten bumped up a little.  He usually naps about 1-3 in the afternoons.

Likes: baths, being outside, his brothers, music, watching TV, chewing on things

Dislikes: his carseat, getting his diaper changed, having a toy taken away

Milestones: He has gotten super fast at crawling all over the place!  He is pulling up on everything and cruising around furniture.  I've caught him a few times just standing by balancing his belly on the train table or the ottoman and not holding on with his hands.  He will be walking soon!  And he now has a total of 6 teeth!  They all came in within 2 weeks of each other right around the time he turned 8 months.

Clothes: Parker is wearing 9-12 month and 12 month clothes.  So many things are too small in the length.  Size 4 diapers.

Favorite Moment: Halloween was a blast dressing all 3 boys up in coordinating outfits!  Parker had fun riding around in his little red car and watching all of the craziness.

Looking forward to: Celebrating Thanksgiving!

Bye Mom!

Seriously, pictures were so hard to get this month!

He loves riding in the baskets at grocery stores!

Always pulling up!

All smiles, all of the time!

We love you sweet Parker!
