Jayden discovered PUMPKINS a couple weeks back while on a walk with Grandma Dottie and Grandpa Phil. Since then there is no stopping him. I bought him a small one at the grocery store. He cried when they took it to weigh it and he had to bring it TO the restaurant we ate lunch at that day. So, of course, like any good parents would, we took him to the pumpkin patch. Much fun ensued, including a pony ride and a petting zoo. Jayden had a BLAST!!!

"Pony rides are awesome, Mom!"

Checking out the animals!!

"Oh, baby chickens!"

"I love my dad!"

"Hay is fun to throw in the air!"

Pumpkins, pumpkins, pumpkins!!!

"And, finally, did I mention I love my mommy?"

water, water, water

Jayden is OBSESSED with water these days. He wants to play with the hose outside, in the neighbor's sprinklers, in the sink, etc. Here he is going crazy at the sink. You can tell he is in HEAVEN!!!

so in love

Eli gets cuter everyday it seems!!!! And even though he pukes all the time (note bib and burpcloth in the pic below) and still isn't a great sleeper, we are totally in love with him!!!

3 months!!

Well Eli turned three months old. My, how time flies! It literally feels like yesterday that I was looking down at my HUGE belly saying, "Get out of me!" Hee hee. We are a quarter of the way through our first year already. Praise God!!

So what is Eli doing these days?
  • he weighed in at 13 lbs, 7 3/4 oz at the doctor last week. he hasn't gained much at all since his 2 month check-up which is a bit concerning. so we are off to the reflux specialist in a week to see what's up.
  • sleeping in longer stretches. he even slept all the way through one night!! 8:30-6:45!! most nights he is up just once which is very nice for mommy. he is also sleeping in his crib in the room with Jayden now. another wonderful thing. mommy and daddy have their room back!
  • he has rolled over twice from back to belly. odd, we know. no belly to back yet.
  • still eating like a champ (and puking like one, too)
  • smiling, cooing, and laughing all the time now. he LOVES Jayden and is very responsive to most people. we love it!!!
All in all, Eli is doing great!!! Just need to get the reflux under control. Will post pics soon. We got some good ones the other day but haven't uploaded them yet. :)
