Happy Halloween!


Yes, yes, I did let my 5 year old wear a face full of makeup for Halloween. It was her favorite part.

Meet the Flintstone!

If you remember our friends have a huge Halloween party every year. Most everyone goes all out on the costumes. I like for us to have matching costumes. We've been Zeus and Aphrodite, Joe the Plumber and Sarah Palin, and now Fred and Wilma. I think it's impressive that I made our costumes out of a set of t-shirt sheets and some felt.

Pumpkin Patch

We went to Dreamfield Farms in Union Springs to pick out our pumpkins this year.

Our family on the way to the pumpkin patch. Lily got a butterfly balloon and Jacob wanted to eat it.

I love these guys. They are standing on top of a huge haybale.

Petting the animals. We got to feed these donkeys. Lily's favorite part was the baby goats.

Looking for the perfect pumpkin. We got a big one for Lily and a tiny one for Jacob.

5 Months old!

At 5 months Jacob has one tooth. He can army crawl/scoot/roll anywhere he wants to go. He's a champion eater. He seems to be allergic to rice, but love oatmeal.

He love his sister and she loves him. She let him hold her teddy bear for this picture. How big do his feet look in this picture?!?

How do I get out of this picture?

Hey puppy. How can we get out of here?

Random shots of the little man

Eating baby food for the first time. Peas. He thought cereal was good, but now he knows real food.

Trying to get all of his toes in his mouth.

Almost got them all!

Home Sweet LIttle Home

Papu (Tom) built Lily this house for her birthday. My grandpa built me a play house for my 5th birthday too. Lily's has real windows and a little front porch. She has her kitchen and some baby stuff inside.

Sitting on the front porch with her baby brother.

I think he must be trying to see what his silly big sister is doing.

We make cute kids.

I think Lily is very excited about something.

A day in the sun...

We went outside so Lily could play on her swingset. I thought it was the perfect opportunity to take Jacob's picture while he enjoyed the sunshine.

Sunbathing baby!

My beautiful baby boy!

The most beautiful baby boy

Happy to be outside

Look at the lashes on the boy

This face cracks me up. Look at his jowls. Those are smoochable cheeks.

4 months old!

These are the pictures from our 4 month old "photo shoot." Of course Lily had to help. Jacob was too squirmy to take very many good ones.
At his 4 month check up, Jacob weighed 14 lbs, 5 ozs and was 26 1/2 inches long. He's a tall boy.
He is still a happy baby, even though he never sleeps. He wakes up about every 3 hours.
He can roll over both ways.
He loves his big sister. He grins whenever he sees her.

Look at those chubby legs.

Drooling baby. His first tooth came in right after this.

Telling us about it. He wanted to talk to us hurrying up, I think.

Big sister was not to be left out. Look at the grin. I love these kids!

First food!

Jacob got to have his first bit of real food after his 4 month check up. He loved it and hasn't turned down a bit since.

Jacob goes to the beach.

Jacob didn't care about the ocean. He napped instead.
