Happy Halloween!

We thought for a minute about actually carving the pumpkins, but why do that when you can just cover them with fancy stickers? Seriously, I didn't miss the mess at all and Emmett really liked putting the stickers on his mini pumpkin. I'm a little worried that not having a lit pumpkin on our porch is going to affect our trick-or-treater numbers. Our new neighbors have told us to expect the little kids to arrive by the van full and I'm going to be really disappointed if that's not the case! 

As evidenced by the last photo, Emmett was super excited about the pumpkins. Happy Halloween!!

First Day

Today was our first day of daycare. I say "our" because I seriously felt like it was my first day of school. I laid out all of our stuff the night before, stressed over what to wear (went with the lucky husky shirt), and couldn't sleep. All in all it went good. He was fine, like totally fine when I left him there in the morning. A little girl came up and started playing with him and he forgot all about me (this little girl will forever be my favorite). However, when I came back three hours later to pick him up, he was in a slightly different mood. He was sitting on the teacher's lap crying while she read a book to all the kids. I know he had fun today, he was just overwhelmed and exhausted. It's just going to take some time to get used to the new routine. I've always hated the first day of everything. So, I'm sure tomorrow will be way easier.

10, 11, and 12 Months

Well, as you can see I'm really on top of things around here. I wanted to finish out the completion of the sticker pictures. So here you go. 10, 11, and 12 months. It's so funny looking back on these photos.  Jordan and I took a million photos of the early months and then once he started moving and noticing the sticker...we we're lucky to catch one or two. Happy Birthday little Emmett.

Beach Bum

I'm excited that fall is officially here, but I'm going to miss spending time outside and enjoying the sunshine. Emmett loved the beach this summer. Loved eating the sand, playing with giant beach balls, and eating some more sand. One thing I won't miss about summer: sunscreen. Putting sunscreen on a baby is the worst. I hope he has more hair by next summer, so I don't have to worry about his head so much.

You're # 1!

I just got home from a work trip to San Diego.  Jordan (and my mom) took great care of E while I was gone. We skyped every night and it was so funny to see Emmett. He was a little perplexed at first about why I was on the screen and kept peeking behind the laptop.  I don't even think he realized I was away. Jordan reported that both the baby and the Mr. Big slept way better with me gone. Go figure.  I'm really glad to be home, I missed by boys.  

I finally got around to downloading the photos off my camera and I realized we've had a lot of exciting stuff going on lately. Bike repairs, pumpkin patch, Boo at the Zoo (I know that's not the name, but I think this sounds better), and biggest of all....turning one! 

He loved the carousel...

Until it started moving.
