HALLOWEEN WEEKEND

MY CUTE LITTLE DRAGON PLAYING HIS PART! WE DIDN'T TAKE SKYLER TRICK OR TREATING BECAUSE HE DOESN'T EAT CANDY YET AND I DIDN'T WANT IT HERE OR I WOULD EAT IT ALL. WE DID TAKE HIM AROUND TO A FEW FRIENDS HOUSE TO SHOW HIM OFF. I FOUND THIS CUTE DRAGON COSTUME AT BURLINGTON BABY DEPOT FOR ($1.97) WHAT A STEAL I KNOW. I LOVE LOVE LOVE GOOD DEALS.

SKYLER ENJOYING HIMSELF. HE IS CLOSE TO CRAWLING BUT I DON'T KNOW IF HIS ARMS CAN HOLD UP HIS 20LB BODY.

PLAYING WITH RUBY. SHE IS SUCH A DOLL. SKYLER LOOKS LIKE A GIANT NEXT TO HER.

SKYLER WOULD RATHER ROLL TO THINGS TO GET ACROSS THE ROOM THEN TRY CRAWLING........BUT I'M NOT COMPLAINING.


MAX WAS THE HANGOVER GUY WITH BABY CARLOS AND I WAS A FRENCH MAID!

SKYLER ACTUALLY FELL ASLEEP IN THERE FOR A HOUR

MY CUTE FRIEND LORI

YES I WAS A LITTLE SHOCKED THAT SHE CAME AS A MORMON MISSIONARY

THE GIRLS. WE GOT INVITED TO THE HOFMEISTER'S AND HAD A FUN NIGHT. THEY HAD THEIR HOUSE DECORATED SO SCARY!

MY MOM SAYING GOODBYE TO HER BOYS. ITS ALWAYS SO HARD TO SEE HER LEAVE AND I USUALLY GET HOMESICK FOR A FEW DAYS AFTER. GOOD THING THE HOLIDAYS AREN'T TOO FAR AWAY. WE LOVE YOU MOM, THANKS FOR COMING TO VISIT!

LOOK HOW I HAVE FILLED OUT

THIS IS SKYLER AT 3 WEEKS OLD. HE IS ALL SKIN AND BONES WITH NO FAT. HE ONLY WEIGHED 6.5LBS. I CAN'T BELIEVE HE WAS SO SMALL. IT SEEMS LIKE FOREVER AGO THAT EVERYONE WAS SO SCARED TO HOLD HIM AND FEARED THEY WOULD DROP HIM OR BREAK HIM.

NOW AT ALMOST 8 MONTHS, THIS GUY IS ALL ROLLS AND I LOVE IT. EVERY WHERE WE GO SOMEONE MAKES A COMMENT ON HOW CHUBBY HE IS OR HOW BALD HE IS. ( AND I THOUGHT HIS HAIR WAS COMING IN GREAT)


IF YOU LOOK CLOSE YOU CAN SEE HIS 2 BOTTOM TEETH!

MAX IS ALWAYS PLAYING WITH HIM AND ITS ADORABLE! DON'T MIND MY MOM OBSERVING IN THE BACK


WE WENT TO THE HARBOR FOR FISH N CHIPS. MY MOM BEGS ME EVERY TIME SHE IS HERE. WE ARE GOING TO MISS HER WHEN SHE LEAVES. SKYLER AND BUNK LOVE HAVING AN EXTRA PERSON TO PLAY WITH.




MY MOM OFFERED TO WATCH SKYLER SO MAX AND I COULD GO GOLFING. WE USED TO GO EVERY WEEKEND AND NOW WE GO WHEN WE HAVE A BABYSITTER ( FAMILY FROM UTAH) TO WATCH HIM. WE HAD A GREAT TIME!


WHATS THIS???? OH JUST A COYOTE WALKING THE COURSE. WE WERE ONLY 20 FEET AWAY FROM HIM. PEOPLE IN CALI ARE AFRAID OF THESE THINGS LIKE THEY ARE MOUNTAIN LIONS OR SOMETHING.

SAD FACE

MAX WAS PLAYING WITH SKYLER AND WE FINALLY CAUGHT HIS SAD FACE ON CAMERA. MAX MADE A SOUND THAT SKYLER DID NOT LIKE AND GAVE US THIS FACE:
THIS LITTLE FACE MELTS MY HEART. HE DOES IT AT NIGHT WHEN I THINK HE IS ASLEEP AND I LAY HIM DOWN IN HIS CRIB. HE TURNS RIGHT AROUND AND LOOKS AT ME WITH THE CURLED LIP AND PUPPY DOG EYES. I USUALLY GIVE IN AND BRING HIM TO BED WITH ME.

MAX PICKED OUT THIS LITTLE JACKET. I WAS A BIT NERVOUS AT FIRST BUT IT LOOKS PRETTY CUTE ON HIM

GOING OUT TO DINNER


WE TRIED THE RESTAURANT HIGH CHAIRS THIS WEEK AND SKYLER SEEMED TO LIKE IT. I CAN'T WAIT TO GET A COVER BECAUSE THINKING OF ALL THE GERMS MAKES ME SICK


WE WENT TO DINNER WITH THE ALLANS

POOR BUNK

POOR BUNKERS. HE HATES TO GET A BATH. WE HAVE TO CARRY HIM OR DRAG HIM INTO THE STORE. I TOOK HIM TO PETCO YESTERDAY FOR THE 1ST TIME TO GET A BATH AND TRIM HIS NAILS......30 MINUTES LATER I GET A VOICE MESSAGE SAYING TO CALL BACK AS SOON AS I CAN. THE MANAGER SAID THAT WHEN BUNK WAS GETTING A BATH HIS TOENAIL GOT CAUGHT AND RIPPED ALL THE WAY OFF AND HE WAS BLEEDING EVERY WHERE. SO THEY TOOK HIM TO A VET. I WENT STRAIGHT TO PETCO TO SEE WHAT HAPPENED BUT THE GIRL WHO WAS BATHING HIM DIDN'T EVEN WANT TO TALK TO ME. ( I GUESS I HAD FIRE IN MY EYES) I WAS MAD. NO SORRY, NO APOLOGY, "JUST ACCIDENTS HAPPEN."
LAST WEEK WHEN WE WERE WATCHING CONFERENCE I DECIDED THAT I NEED TO HANDLE THE SMALL THINGS BETTER THAN I DO AND NOT GET SO MAD......BUT........BUNK IS LIKE A CHILD TO ME ( ALL YOU PET OWNERS UNDERSTAND) I KNOW IT WASN'T LIFE OR DEATH BUT MY POOR PUPPY WAS IN PAIN FOR SOMETHING THAT WASN'T HIS FAULT. I WASN'T TOO BAD BUT I AM DEFINITELY GLAD I WASN'T BACK IN UTAH WHERE EVERYONE KNOWS YOU OR YOUR FAMILY. NEEDLESS TO SAY I WON'T BE GOING BACK THERE AND THEY SHOULD SEND BUNK A FREE BAG OF FOOD : )
BUNK HAS A SOFT CAST THAT NEEDS TO BE ON FOR 3-5 DAYS. HE NEEDS TO BE ON AN ANTIBIOTIC FOR A WEEK. HE LIMPS AROUND AND I FEEL SO BAD FOR HIM BUT HE DOES LOVE ALL THE ATTENTION HE GETS FROM EVERYONE


HE PROPPED HIS CAST ON MY LEG SO I COULD GET A BETTER LOOK

HE CAN'T GET ENOUGH OF SKYLER. I KNOW THESE 2 ARE GOING TO BE BEST FRIENDS

LOOK AT THOSE THIGHS!

TEETH..HAIR...FACES....CRIB


SKYLER'S 2 BOTTOM TEETH ARE COMING IN. YOU CAN SEE THE TOPS OF THEM. HE HAS BEEN PRETTY GOOD ABOUT IT AND LOVES TO CHEW ON COLD THINGS AND HIS NEW SOPHIE TOY. HE IS CONSTANTLY MAKING US LAUGH. SOME OF THE FACES HE HAS BEEN PULLING LATELY MAKE HIM LOOK LIKE AN OLD MAN WITHOUT HIS DENTURES. HE HAS BEEN WHISTLING TOO. FUNNY I KNOW...MAX AND I BOTH THOUGHT THE OTHER ONE WAS DOING IT BUT IT WAS SKYLER. MY LITTLE GUY IS FINALLY GETTING SOME OF THAT HAIR BACK. I WAS EVEN ABLE TO SPIKE IT.

WHEN WE GOT BACK FROM UTAH I TOLD MYSELF IT WAS TIME TO LET GO AND HAVE SKYLER SLEEP IN HIS CRIB. HE HAS BEEN DOING GREAT! HE GOES TO BED AROUND 8:30 OR 9:00 AND STAYS IN THERE TILL 5:00. MAX IS GETTING READY FOR WORK SO SKYLER GETS IN WITH ME. SO I GUESS I KIND OF LET GO. I STILL LISTEN TO THE MONITOR ALL NIGHT LONG.
I LOVE THIS LITTLE GUY SO MUCH. HE HAS SUCH A CUTE HAPPY PERSONALITY. I LOVE THAT HE IS ON A SCHEDULE NOW. OUR DAYS ARE PRETTY ROUTINE BUT I WOULDN'T CHANGE IT FOR ANYTHING!

HE LOVES TO PET BUNK AND PULL ON HIS EARS. BUNK LOVES THE ATTENTION TOO.


I KNOW IT DOESN'T LOOK LIKE MUCH BUT HE IS GETTING SOME BLOND HAIR


THE LOVELY OLD MAN FACE! HE WAS TRYING NOT TO SMILE IN THE PIC BELOW.

IF ONLY HE DIDN'T HAVE SO MANY ROLLS....MAYBE HE COULD GET THOSE TOES TO HIS MOUTH
IT'S TIME TO EAT....ALWAYS PUTS A SMILE ON HIS FACE!
