Sibling Love!

meeting up with an old friend

 A couple of weeks ago my sister and I met up with an old friend from elementary school, Darin.  She is one of the nicest people and she just had her first baby, Dylan.  He was so sweet and it was so neat to see her as a mom!  My parents had a great time catching up and reminiscing about the good old days!

optimus prime and a little cupcake

 Ty was Optimus Prime for Halloween along with every other boy his age and Tatum was a cupcake.  The both loved their costumes.  They both had Halloween parties and preschool and then we went downtown trick or treating at the local businesses with the Johnstons and then we went to their house for dinner and more trick or treating.   The kids had a great time and I think Halloween is Tatum's new favorite holiday, she thought it was great that people were just giving her candy!  We carved our pumpkins the day before Halloween and luckily the kids didn't ask for much with their carvings.  I did my best to carve to order and they were happy with what mommy did, thank goodness because Ty can be a little particular about how he wants things. 

Tatum's field trip to the pumpkin patch

 I went with Tatum's class to the pumpkin patch at Gordon's Farm.  It was a lot of fun and Tatum was so proud of the pumpkin she picked.  She couldn't wait to show Miss Treva her pumpkin. 

Ty's pumpkin patch field trip

 Ty's preschool went to Schuh Farms for their pumpkin patch field trip.  The kids and parents had a great time and the weather was perfect!  I took Brady along and he didn't make a peep and slept in the front pack the whole time. 

Brady: 6 Months

 My baby is 6 months old! I can't get enough of this little boy.  He is always smiling and content, he tends to get serious when I bring out the camera.  He enjoys going to my volleyball games and doesn't make a peep and seems to sleep through the noise.  He loves his binky monkey.  He rolls right over and it is getting harder and harder to change his diaper.  He is a hair puller and a pincher.  He just started eating baby food, he seems to like it, he only ate a half of a jar on his first real attempt!  Brady is really starting to play with his toys and he looks for toys when they are dropped.  He is in a size 4 diaper and blows out of those several times a day and is in 12-18 month clothes.  Tatum and Ty continue to love on their little baby brother and still haven't shown one bit of jealousy towards him.
