This past Saturday morning (before the bottom fell out:)) we picked up our pumpkins. What a difference a year makes! Last year Little Robert would sit and stare and wasn't walking. This year he was ALL over the place and tried to throw every pumpkin he could get his hands on.

Crib Diving

This past week was straight out of a parenting book. The chapter would have been on standing your ground while helping to transition strong willed children. I lost you, I know.

Monday night Robert decided the crib was overrated and better used for diving out of. Luckily we were watching the video monitor and saw it coming. We both nearly killed each other trying to get up the stairs to him. It was more of a speak later, move now type moment. Rather than discuss the child trying to crib dive, just run. We spent most of the night co sleeping with him checking in on us every few minutes with a whisper, "Mama?" and then a pat to the check. "Macy?" pat to the tail. "Dada?" reach with the arm. Tuesday night was somewhat better. Half way through the night we rocked and then returned to the crib. We missed Wednesdays Library day with a teething fever and massive sleep deprivation. By Saturday night we had a serious sit down talk and so far things are going better. After putting him down Saturday night he tried crib diving while I was leaving the room. I quickly responded and told him if he tried that again he would get a spanking. He said, "Spanking." and then did a pat to his leg. Cloud and Townsend would be so proud.

We had a great Coffee club Friday and a great dinner with friends that night. Saturday was more teething fun and a missed Halloween party.

This past week Robert also started eating rice and is really into shredded cheese. He really lives on the edge.

We made these brownies for Friday nights dinner, Monkey Bread muffins for Coffee club and tried this for dinner this past week.

We went for Robert's second haircut. It was eventful to say the least.

It's a awful photo but it gives you the idea of the top of his costume.

First week of October!

Last Friday we picked up Robert's costume. I couldn't find a link for it but he is going to be the puppy from Gymboree. He and Ryland are going to dress the same and as always are sure to have a great time. This week we made Pumpkin Pie bars and have been enjoying the sudden change to cooler weather. Robert also has been continuing to do his fair share of falling and injuring himself. He weekly earns a new bruise from some form of adventure seeking, dare deviled activity that he comes up with. Last night he tried to stand in the office chair and step down onto the floor and ended up with a huge bruise on his forehead just to the left of last weeks bruise. He screamed and cried while saying, "I went weeee."

I don't have any updated photos loaded on the computer of this month but here are more photos from this time last year.

Side note: Our Eat Page is completely updated for the most part.
