October update

Here are some pics before all the Halloween pics we're sure to have after this week.

First: Kevin is all smiles for the mobile above his changing table. This was the best shot I could get. He kicks around and gives this HUGE smile as he watches each animal come through his area of vision.

Here's a good pic of his smile.

Here's a funny one. I was nursing him one afternoon and he had been eating for close to 20 minutes, so I asked him "Are you done yet?" He stuck his pointer finger up like he was trying to say "One minute mom!"

Here's a couple of Amanda. I found her in each of these pics like this. The first, she's wearing the Baby Bjorn I often carry Kevin in. She attempted to put her "babies" in it, but it didn't quite work out.

And this day she found my purse and wallet. Decided to take EVERY. SINGLE. THING. out of my wallet. It took me a while to put it all back together!

Another of Kevin. I decided to spike his hair since he has so much of it. He would make an adorable rocker :)

Pics from September

Sorry I've been lazy about posting here... I'm trying to enjoy Kevin's infancy and my maternity leave, as this will be my last!
Here are a few of Kevin being cute:

The "O" face (Amanda did the same thing!)

Kevin was great at holding his head up, even just a few days after birth. Here he is at about 5 weeks holding his head up like a pro!

More beach pics. After our successful beach trip with Mimi & Mark, Mike wants to go fairly often. So here we are at the beach again in September.

Mike dug a hole to get to the wet sand, and Amanda wouldn't climb in it until I did. So here is me standing in the hole, and then Amanda.

"Ok Mommy, I done"
The day after Labor Day, our daycare was closed for a Staff Development Day so I had both kids all day by myself. I attempted to take Amanda to a Children's Museum in Norwalk, but discovered when we got there that it was closed until October. So we played in the adjoining park where they had some dinosaur sculptures Amanda climbed on:

This was inspired by a photographer I saw on Oprah that poses little babies in these adorable positions. I tried to do the same with Kevin and got the following pic that I think turned out pretty good :)

And here's my best shot of the "Oh my gosh, look at me!" face that Kevin does when he sort of stands up on my lap.
