Thanksgiving Tree at school
Elias is thankful for his BFF, Will.
WHAT are YOU thankful for???

This year we drove to my hometown to spend Thanksgiving.

His fav part. Playing in the dog crates. Who needs a crib or a pack and play.
Playing outside
My almost FIVE year old nephew, Landyn
The only thing he would eat out of all the yummy goodness: mashed potatoes.
Whats Thanksgiving without Cowboys football? Even though they lost. Sigghhhh.

Hope you had an wonderful Thanksgiving :)

Halloween Part 3: Pumpkin Patch

The day before Halloween we loaded up the babies and visited the same Pumpkin Patch we took E to last year. This year he was old enough to be able to enjoy everything that they have to offer for the kiddos...

Such a boy. He loves anything with wheels. The tractor was a big hit.

And I can take you for a ride on my big green tractor....

Sweet pic of E & A. Love them.

3 Little Pumpkins

Pumpkin Family

Llama Llama Red Pajama...E really liked the petting zoo with all the animals. I think he likes anything with 4 legs and fur as much as he likes anything with wheels.

He LOVED the pony ride, that is until the pony actually started moving...then he was over it and wanted off.

Being sweet.....

and silly on the hay ride.

In search of the Great Pumpkin...

Found One!

So did Addie.

Our Little Family of 3 soon to be 4 :)

Halloween Part 2: We are off to see the Wizard...

The wonderful Wizard of Oz, because because because because becauseeeeee.....Our Mom's group had a Halloween Fest and we decided to dress the stroller mafia up as the Wizard of Oz characters. It turned out sooooo adorable and they had many compliments and admirers....But who could blame them in all this cuteness!

23/24 weeks

Had my 23 weeks appt for 2.0. Baby is growing right on track. Strong heartbeat of 150bpm and I had a 3 lb weight gain...which brings grand total for this pregnancy to 3 lbs. Ha. I am still wearing my regular jeans and most of my shirts. I do like maternity shirts better though because they are longer. My jeans even seem like they are too big because seriously the weight is getting sucked from everywhere to go to my belly. I cant eat very much at a time, and when I do eat I feel icky. Yucko.

A few fun pics...

2.0 on the left, E on the right. I was a lot bigger with E than with 2.0

All 2.0

Our little case you were the size of a Papaya (22-24 weeks, or Month 5)

Watch what you say -- baby is now able to hear outside noise from down in the womb. Studies show that baby finds gentle music and your own voice most soothing. Nipples are starting to sprout, and that little face is fully formed. And, baby's starting to settle into sleep cycles, snoozing about 12 to 14 hours a day. It shouldn't be hard to figure out when -- just pay attention to those kicks as they start and stop.

Halloween Part 1: School Party and Pumpkin Carving

Halloween was a big holiday for us this year...we were slammed packed with events to attend which included THREE different costumes :)
We went to Boo at the Zoo which was already blogged about...Elias had his first class party where he made a VERY cute Rock Star...we carved pumpkins...we attended our Mom's Group Halloween Fest...we went to pumpkin patch...and we trick or treated. By the end of the week both baby and Momma were exhausted but it was well worth all the fun :) Elias has gotten to such a fun age and seeing him interact and enjoy things more has been amazing. Here are some pics of our little Rock Star and of some pumpkin carving....

Class party costume...Rock Star...

It was nap time and he was so OVER pictures and my camera :) Even Rock Stars gotta nap :)

We went to a local church to get our pumpkins :) Boy Scouts were selling pumpkins for a good deal. We went to a pumpkin patch (twice actually) but just for the experience and the hay rides :)

a name.

2.0 has a name. Baby Boy 2.0 will be called Nolan. We havent 100% agreed on a middle name yet but soon. It was hard to find a name that we both loved, that was uncommon, and was as cute as Elias :)

Brothers :)
