Oh, October

Our October was especially busy. No different than any other month but filled with what seemed to be daily appointments or other happenings...

I took both kids to the pediatrician for their physicals.  Remind me never to combine that again.  It was rather difficult.

'The Boy', who entertained himself by playing video games, is growing right on track.  He is in the 85th percentile for both height and weight.  We seem to have his allergies under control for now which is amazing.  Dr. H. continues to be amazed by his speech and communication and ability to express his feelings.  He had to have one vaccination but he was so brave because he's "a big boy now".

'Munchkin', who continues to live up to her nickname, finally reached to 20 pound mark,  She is in the 35th percentile for weight and the 75th percentile for height.  No wonder we have so much trouble finding pants that fit her well.  She occupied herself by ripping the paper liner on the exam table into tiny little shreds.  Such a toddler.

 We ran some errands one afternoon and turned around to find this.  Twinsies...I love it!

I picked up my Scentsy order from Debran and added it to my Scentsy drawer.  I might need to kick back for a while.

'The Boy' had been learning to draw letters at preschool and he loves to practice.

He very conveniently outgrew his toddler bed and we put him in his new big boy bed.  It is so much better to read stories in bed with him instead of from the floor.

I don't know what I did to deserve it but, 'The Hubs' brought me breakfast in bed for three Sundays in a row.

He also broke down and bought me and the kids a minivan.  I had been asking for one for a while and he finally realized that it is the best vehicle for us right now.  I love it!

Our friends, Erica and Steve, threw the kids a little Halloween party.  We were so glad 'The Hubs' got to see 'The Littles' all dressed in their costumes.

It took a little persuading to get this one in his costume this year.

We carved pumpkins at Mimi and Papa's a few nights before Halloween.  'The Hubs' always teases 'The Boy' with the pumpkin guts.

'The Hubs' did his best Gangster impression at his Uncle's birthday/Halloween party.

And we rounded out the month with more pumpkin carving. 

Minnie and Mickey pumpkins...would you expect any less from us?
