Ready. Set. Crawl.

Dad finally carved our pumpkin the day after Halloween.  Better late than never!  Somehow I forgot to snap a pic of the finished product.  It wasn't exactly like the one on the right, but pretty close (kidding).














Mimi came to watch me at dance class on 11/2.  I was very well behaved....for once ;-)
















After dance we headed to the zoo to see the new penguin exhibit.  I highly recommend it!
















































Graham has been doing a lot more and more around the house lately.  He's helped fold laundry, has learned to crawl, and can stand on his own.















On Friday 11/8 I had a birthday party to go to at a place similar to Chucky Cheese.







The weather was pretty great that weekend so we did a picnic on Saturday, Nov 9th.  Probably the last one of the year.







Graham can now take big kid baths just like me!

Earlier this week mom and dad put up the Christmas tree.  Kind of early, but what the heck.
























On Thursday 11/14 we went out for some pizza to celebrate by my grandpa's birthdays.  Dido's was a little while back and BobBob's is coming up.


















In the last month, dad had the stomach flu, then 3 days later I had it, then mom had it, and now poor Graham is sick with a fever.  Hopefully we all got it out of our system and will be well for the rest of the winter.  Knock on wood!!

Another Very Merry Unbirthday

To me.
To who?
To me.
Oh, you.  

By "you" I mean Graham.  Wednesday, October 30th was his 6 month unbirthday.  My how time flies.  It feels like only yesterday that I was an only child who didn't need to share Barbies or vie for Mom and Dad's attention.



On Thursday, 10/24 we stayed at school for a book fair.  They had a balloon guy and face painting!  I slept in my butterfly face and wore it to school the next day.












Here I am squeezing into a 18-24 month KSU outfit that aunt Brandi got me a loooooong time ago.

Saturday 10/26 was Avery's annual Halloween party.  As usual the costumes were great.  Some how I didn't get a pic of mom and dad together dressed as Sonny and Cher.





















I did manage to get in a costume change and modeled both my Garden Gnome and my Ladybug from last year.  You may have noticed Graham was missing from the action...he stayed the night at Mimi's!


Here we are doing a room to room trick or treat.

A little stackers at breakfast.  Note I'm way better than I was a year ago.  

Dinner with Mimi and Max on Sunday when they returned Graham.  Dad had to skip out due to the stomach flu.







Halloween night we headed to my friend Matthew's neighborhood to do some Trick or Treating.  It turned out to be a nice night but a little cold.


























On a side note, I had quite the tummy ache last night.  At first they thought I ate too much candy, but turns out I had the stomach flu.  

Graham had his 6 month this morning.  Dad took the over on his weight thinking he was at least 20 pounds.  Turns out he was only 17lb 12oz and 26 inches tall.  If you'll remember, at his 3 month checkup he was 16lb 10oz and the same height.  Apparently he's peaked and will be as short as mom and dad are.



Here's Graham on his first swing ride at the park:
