For my personal record:
I turn 28 tomorrow (yikes) and what is my most memorable gift? My purse, clothes, Luigi's dinner, or any other gift from my family?? (We celebrated early since Tim left town for work) nope.... I think the thing I will remember best is... having shingles. Hope it gets better soon!

Well Blake is still not 100% healthy, but at least fever free... it's been rough around here with both kiddos lately. They've both had runny noses and coughs for the past few days. Open house last week at MDO was bad since Blake didn't feel the best, we didn't go to the library Halloween party and no pumpkin has been carved... I'm just praying Blake feels better tomorrow.
At Open House:
After watching their "Circle Time" in the classroom, 3 MDO classes performed a few songs each in the gym.... with all the parents watching. I don't think she liked it very much! (we probably shouldn't have gone at all, but she was okay at the time)

Sunday morning she came in our room stating "Momma, I feel aaaallllllll better, way" (as in all the way better!)
Little man thankfully did not catch her sickness! Easton is as busy and active as ever. It also seems we're having a break in the teething because he is sleeping like normal, as in through the night! Yay! Thanks buddy!
He still loves to be standing and has even let go of the things he holds onto for just a second to stand alone a couple times. :( Not ready for that yet...
What a handsome boy!
We have a Halloween party at the library this week, Open House at MDO tomorrow night, and a pumpkin to carve. Pictures to come!

Grandma came with us! (Papa was out of town) and we all went to dinner afterwards. Saturday was a low-key day - as I mentioned Easton has been having horrible nights so this momma is exhausted! - and then we walked to Greg, Tori and Geneva's house for the party. There were lots of 2 year olds and some older kids, but this time Blake was not too scared to jump in the bounce house, even when everybody was in there!!
Blake was so ready to paint! She was very careful painting up and down over and over. It was so funny to see how some of the kids painted, all over their body, or dabbing it, fast, slow, or on their neighbor's pumpkin... 2 year olds are funny! Here's how Blake's pumpkin turned out.
We also made pumpkin popsicles! No not pumpkin flavored, but pumpkin shaped... Blake wanted to use Kool-Aid, so that's what we did. They were delicious and Blake was a great helper making them!
I'll post about our carved pumpkin experience after we do that, closer to Halloween...

My poor boy is having a horrible time teething, as is his poor Momma! Oh my gosh, the nights we have been having......... But that's ok, just more time to cuddle, right?!
Other happenings at 8 months:
-loves to squeal and babble, can say "dada", bounce on his knees, kick his legs repeatedly when excited, be outside, peek-a-boo, giving hugs and kisses, and eating!! He grabs for the spoon and likes to help put it in his mouth, tries to do his sippy cup himself, too, still loves to be held, but is doing pretty well at independent play as he explores! Easton is a busy bee!

Easton is hard to bathe these days. I've been bathing both kids together, but Easton only wants to stand up, so naturally he pulls up on the side of the tub and then grabs for me.... over and over and over. I have to keep sitting him back down to try to wash him. So tonight, I thought I'd try the kitchen sink again. My mom helped me give him a kitchen sink bath in Florida, so I figured why not?
He hated it. Easton started screaming after I put him in, then thought it might be ok until he splashed himself in the face... then he hated it again.
Easton is a mess! He's also a fast little dude when he gets going. Occasionally he still likes to do his one armed army-crawl, but mostly he books it around crawling to whatever he decides to get into next. Here he is tonight after his bath.
Silly sister Blake! She is hard to get a picture of these days with all her funny faces.
But she loves her brother, (although she gets so mad if he gets into her stuff. We're working on that issue!) Blake wanted to play with Easton, so she said she needed to crawl.

Somebody is a little too busy! This little guy is crawling all over (really crawling) really fast. Easton pulls up on anything, tables, chairs, couches, people, bathtubs, magazine racks, ficus trees... ha! I really have to stay on my toes because he is all over the place.

On that same page, Blake is getting wonderful reports from her teachers at MDO. She is excited to get to go to school, always asking if it's time yet, and this morning she told me as we were walking in that she just needed a hug and kiss and that she would see me later. Back at home, she's been singing a song she learned about "a-a-apple, a-a-a" (something like that). I'm so glad she's doing better.
Easton and I enjoyed a relaxing day at home today, after getting our flu shots this morning. He was congested/runny nosed over the weekend with very rough nights. Like I mentioned, he is currently working on his 6th tooth, so teething has been pretty constant lately. I guess he just wants to get all his teeth in at the same time and get it over with.
And just for a funny, we've been talking about Halloween costumes, trying to figure out what to dress up as. Blake told us the other day she wanted to be a pumpkin. So now when we talk about it, it comes out as, "do you still want to be a pumpkin? how about...?(and we talk about different options) Anyway, tonight she told us she wanted to be a "still pumpkin." Isn't that funny?! I wanted to laugh at the cuteness, but didn't want to embarrass her, so I held it. Tim didn't know what a steel pumpkin was, but she took the "still" and added it to the pumpkin since that's how we've been phrasing it. Too cute!
