I'm not sure if all babies are this way, but for us, a lot happened during this last month.
*We finally switched from Newborn diapers to size 1 diapers! Wahoo!
*One morning he rolled over, so we had to stop swaddling him and find another solution for sleeping
*He went from sleeping 8 hours consistently at night to 11-12 hours. WAHOO!!!
We had a lot of fun activities going on this month, so I actually blogged about many of them. Instead of re-expaining them, I added links! Click on the links if you want to read more about that day! :)
|17 week...this was the Friday before Halloween, so we had to dress for the occasion|
First up...the St. John Zoo Run. That was an adventure! HA!
|So proud of my friends and most of all, Trevor! Awesome job babe!|
|OSU vs Texas game. Brooks is saying "OOOO" as in OOOOOO-SSSSS-U COWBOYS!|
|Oct 3 - Such a big guy in his bumbo. I love that he can sit up in this thing now. He loves it.|
Brooks and I were featured in Tulsa Kids. Read about it here.
|This picture just cracks me up!|
|I love making him laugh!|
|Brooks had a great time during his first trip to the fair.|
|Rocking his robe. Oct. 6|
On October 7th some friends from church were having a vow renewal. This boy has been to more wedding festivities than I can count. Thankfully, we had no tears and he was really good during the ceremony.
|Play time - Oct. 9|
|Best dad in the world! He's really good at multi-tasking!|
|Best feeling in the world...excuse all the laundry everywhere!|
|Oct. 11 - Winston loves to hang out where ever Brooks is.|
|Oct. 12 - I am fully aware that I take WAYYYYY too many photos. But, I don't care, I'm having a blast!|
|Who doesn't love a bath towel pic!?|
|Our poor Winston was in a cone for a couple weeks.|
|I love my family!|
|We then made an Andy's run after the picnic...Brooks slept through the whole thing and let us eat our ice cream. We had a Pumpkin Pie concrete, of course!|
|Bath time with all his toys :)|
|We HATE tummy time! I'm lucky if I can get Brooks to be content for one minute. But, I did snag a picture before the waterworks!|
|Helping me make my mom's famous chocolate chip cookies!|
I loved getting to see them and hang out together, even if the time was brief!
|I turned around to fold Brooks' laundry and Winston is passed out on the top of the pile.|
|We are slowly starting to like tummy time.|
|They have the sweetest bond|
|Whiskey wanted to join the convo.|
|My mom swinging with Brooks at LaFortune.|
We celebrated Brooks' first Halloween, which you can read about here.
|He was a ninja turtle on Friday morning|
|Pistol Pete on Friday night|
|A skeleton on Sunday|
|Pistol Pete again on Monday|
On Saturday of that weekend, we made a day trip to Devil's Den, which you can read about here. Brooks did so good! He loves being outside, so I wasn't too worried.
|Oct. 30 - at Trevor's dad's house|
|Nightly convo's with dad|
Every month just keeps getting more and more fun. I thank God every day for choosing me to be Brooks' mom. His smile can light up a room...and he is full of smiles!
