Our little Giraffe

Owen had so much fun celebrating his first Halloween as a giraffe. We decided that he would be a giraffe because it was one of the 1st animals that he took to as a infant. He would lay in his pack and play and "talk" to the giraffe and zebra....too cute :-) We decided to stay in this year because Owen had been fighting a cold. We passed out candy, dressed his friends Elmo(mummy) and Henry(ghost) up, and had a BBQ dinner at our house. Mimi and Papa came and were equally entertained by all the trick or treaters!! Although we didn't get dressed up and go out for Halloween, we had so much fun passing out candy, watching O laugh, and spending time with family. What more could I ask for?
Our fam...right before all the treat or treaters arrived!!!

Our precious little Giraffe(take note that his costume looks a little snug..haha we tried it on 1 month before Halloween...had plenty of about how fast they grow?????)

Fun times at the pumpkin patch!

On October 19th, we ventured out to a pumpkin patch at a local church here in Kernersville. The first attempt was hilarious! It was beautiful outside Owen was smiling and hamming it up...when all of a sudden, the 12:00 church bells started to chime....the result...scared him to pieces...could not get a smile out of him after that... hahaha. We went to Target afterwards and of course he was happy as ever and laughing up a storm. The second attempt was much better!!! Made sure not to go near the hour...haha.

Checking out the hay....

Seconds before the chimes....

my little pumpkin...perfect size for a perfect boy :-)


9 months....and into EVERYTHING!!!

It's hard to believe that our little baby boy is getting closer and closer to 1 yr old!!! Owen continues to amaze me everyday how much he grows, develops, and changes so quickly. Last month, he was barley fitting in his 9 month old month later, we are packing some of them up (not all) !! He went from just starting to crawl to crawling everywhere and pulling up on every single piece of furniture in the house!!! Talk about baby proofing!!! Whew....I suddenly realized how non-baby proof our house was!

At his 9 month old check up he weighed 19lbs and was 29 1/2 inches long!!! Talk about a growth spirt....Dr. Smith could not get over how much he had grown in length....looks like he will be following his daddy in height....thank goodness :-)

Owen continues to amaze us and everyday we just love this fellow more and more. His personality has really developed...he is so funny, laughs all the time....ohhh but strong-willed too (wonder where he gets that from hahah). He is determined and a very independent baby...likes to do things by himself,...including feeding himself with a spoon...which results in one BIG mess! for the meantime, mommy and daddy have to take over that part :-) He is so much fun and we just can't get enough of him....It's hard to believe that he is 9 months old!! Where does the time go? We love you to pieces little O!!
Loving my red's not quite cold enough yet...not long though!!

Here I come....

Awww love his smile!
