This year for Halloween was so much fun! Jonathan was super excited and was really into all of the activities! We hosted our annual Hallo-wii Party on Tuesday with our small group. On Friday we went to Halloween Happening at Trinity and Jonathan had a blast bouncing in the bounce houses even though it was SUPER crowded we had a good time. Tonight we went trick or treating in our little cul-de-sac and he loved going to ALL the houses to get candy! Then we had fun passing out candy and seeing all of the cute costumes. Jonathan and I slipped out quick to go to Frugos for a free yogurt to add to the sugar fest. I think my little gorilla and banana were pretty darn cute!

David Smiles!

This week David started smiling! Totally melts my heart. We had his one month dr appointment on Tuesday (the one that was closer to one month was canceled so he was more like 5 weeks). He now weighs 8 pounds 3 oz and is 23 inches long. He is starting to sleep a little longer at night and is starting to go right back to sleep after nursing at night. Poor little guy is just very gassy and "spit- uppy" so sometimes he just isn't very happy. I am so thankful that he likes his pipie... it makes it so much easier to calm him down than it was to calm JT down at this age with the tummy issues. We love our little squeaker/ little squirty.

One Month Old

On the 17th David turned one month old! It is amazing how fast time is going by. I was going to post when I had his one month stats from the doctor but since that appointment was canceled I suppose I better get on it! I want to record some of the things he is up to:
* Eating - he eats every 2-3 hours and has (once or twice) had a stretch where he made it 4 hours and one time even 5 hours during the night.
* He has fallen very nicely into a very predictable schedule with his eating.... It is funny how it took me 3 months to figure Jonathan out and only 3 weeks to get David figured out. It is amazing how much having him on a schedule helps keep him and me happy.
* David is a major snuggle- bug. He is happiest being held and snuggled up. He loves being in the sling and goes right to sleep when I put him in it. I was worried I wouldn't get enough snuggle time with him while chasing Jonathan around but he is content to be carried wherever we go.
* He loves his swing and spends his daytime naps in it (even if it is turned off) just so he can be close to where the action is. He also likes to be in the bouncy seat.
* He hated his sponge baths but loved it when he first got to go in the water.
* He does not like getting his diaper changed or having clothes pulled over his head in some way. I am sure this has to do with peeing out of his diaper during the night... I wouldn't be too happy either.
* Tummy Time does not last long... he puts his knees up under himself and rolls over.
* He does not like it when I eat chocolate... booo! This might have something to do with the massive amounts of chocolate shakes I drank when I was prego....
* He is not a fan of getting buckled in his car seat.
* He takes a bottle no problem and loves himself some pipie... he prefers the one from the hospital but I am working on getting him to like the "normal" looking ones. :0)

pumpkin patch

On Saturday Afternoon it was feeling a little more like fall than it had the week before so we headed out to the pumpkin patch in Greenspot.
We got a picture with both boys in a hay filled wagon... keeping Jonathan contained for a picture holding David meant Thomas and I had to work fast! :0)
He loves it everytime he gets to hold David!
Mooing at the cow
Riding the train with the Jonathan pumpkin and the baby David pumpkin that he picked out. That was the first thing he wanted to do... get the pumpkins!!
Showing his two year old independence and sitting by mom for a picture :0).
Picking out just the right ones... I LOVE this sling I am borrowing from a friend.
Riding on the teeter totter with Daddy.
He LOVES animals... especially the cute goats.
Little David... all snuggled up!
By the hay maze.
