Happy Halloween!



Mitchell had a great first halloween!!! He loved dressing up as a spider. His costume was so puffy, however, that he could not fit in his carseat. Because of that, we had to dress and undress him at each stop. This became rather tiresome for him and for us, so by the end of the night, he was just a skeleton!



Mitchell decided after he woke up around 2:00pm that day, that he did not want to take a nap again. He did not want to miss seeing everyone and the action that was going on around him. He was really good considering he was awake until 8:30 that night! 6 1/2 hours awake for a 5 month old with few tears is a wonderful feat! He finally had enough and passed out in our arms. We would definitely call his first halloween a success!!!

Mitchell loves solid foods!

He loves his cereal!





Well, it has been almost three weeks now and Mitchell has really liked eating solid foods. He was a little unsure of the cereal at first, but now that he knows what to do with it, he is eager to eat. We have introduced carrots and those have become a big hit! He loves them so much that he literally screams and gets mad when you don't feed him fast enough. I'm beginning to wonder when it is appropriate to start teaching a child patience...


Anyways, we will be going to green beans next with the hopes that he loves them as much as he does carrots. Maybe by Thanksgiving, he will have a whole buffet of vegetables from which he can choose!

Friends!

Friends!
This was Mitchell's first visit with his new friends! Will Zuber and Evylee & Kenzlee Terry are going to be Mitchell's buddies...when he's old enough to sit up and play!

The Bumbo Seat!

The Bumbo Seat!
We have discovered that Mitchell loves sitting up and seeing the world from a "big boy" point of view. His new Bumbo seat has quickly become one of his favorite things to do. He loves watching and listening to us talk to him while he's sitting up just like us!

Mitchell's in deep thought about something...
