Sandy & Andrew

We have done what we can to prepare for Sandy... ugh! I'm praying we do not lose electric. I'm trying to be optimistic but that only goes so far! Wishing we lived closer to family so we can all be together...keep each other company. 

I feel so bad for the kiddos that have been looking forward to trick or treat night on Wednesday...The rain may ruin the night :( We were soo looking forward to handing out candy as well! We haven't lived in a neighborhood in a long time that participates in trick or treat..and there are  TON of kids around here!

Here are a few pictures of Andrew in his costume!

I'm learning to use my camera...but still need to learn Photoshop... So I can edit the pictures..

I created a card over on Shutterfly..and they turned out so perfect!I had about 15 made and shipped them off to family.. I can't wait to make our Christmas cards!

So fingers crossed the flooding is minimal..and we keep power! We already have a mini stream in our backyard. It's been funny trying to get Kingston (our pup) to go out and do his duty! He wants nothing to do with all this rain.   

Stay safe my East Coast family!

Drew's 6 Month Update

*It's getting harder to take your milestone pictures these days!

*Sleeping exclusively in your crib or packnplay when we are at Gigi and Popi's house. You are either on your back or side..yes your side!!! It is really cute!

  *Always babbling, and you have started to laugh..giggle! It's really adorable!

*We tried rice & oatmeal..but after lots of research..your tummy isn't well equipped to adequately digest all of that :( So, we have moved onto .. Bananas, sweet potatos and carrots... you absolutely LOVE sweet potatos! You get angry when the spoon isn't refilled and ready to go :) 

*Your Doctor wants us to go to a feeding specialist..more on that later.

*Love splashing the water during your baths! I'm going to find some cute bath toys! You have grown out of the first part of your tub.. ahhh you are growing!!

*Andrew you bring us so much joy...

*When you are really happy your body tenses up and you scrunch into a ball and bury your head into my shoulder. Your Daddy & I really love it when you do that!

*Feedings down to 5 bottles a day...!

*At the church picnic (September 22) I took you down to dance the misirlou (ethic circle dance) and I held you the whole time. My arm was ready to fall off but you enjoyed it ohhh so much! I wish we would have gotten a picture!

*You are so curious.. constantly reaching for face..the bottle. Reaching for the green duck that hangs off your car seat.

*Still drooling a lot and at times more fussy than normal. We think you may be teething..but who knows! Started to use your Sophie giraffe and I see you chewing your pacifier ...teething?

*I found you a Halloween outfit!!! Oh my you look soo cute! Can't wait!

*Wearing size 6-9, 9 clothing!

*A big smile goes on your face when you see Kingston or Eli Mae. Eli is like a big mama bear to you.. Kingston is finally starting to warm up to ya!

*Rolling rolling rolling... !! It's great!

*Just recently you are able to sit up all by yourself..I don't wander too far in case to tumble over!

*Did I mention you are fussy these days :) We purchased tons of stuff to help with teething...! Hoping at least one item does the trick! Here you are chewing on the apple.

*In size 3 diapers..We really like Target and cute!  

*Went to Alexandria-day trip. You were a very good little boy! It was a beautiful day :)

*Your 6 month appointment stats: Weight: 17lbs 13.6oz, Length: 26.25, Head 45cm. Growing!

*Been going to church a lot since we are up in PA for a little bit. I love that you are able to see your Godmothers and that they are taking you up for communion. Below is a picture of us after looked soo handsome!

*You are in your big boy stroller seat :( can you believe it!!! BUT you love it! We sometimes take 4 walks a day since Daddy works soo late.You are constantly looking around...and appear very relaxed. This is my view of you now! ps.. i LOVE your stroller...

Fall Swap!

My amazing Fall Swap partner Sara from Miss V's Busy Bees sent me the best package in the world! I'm currently up in PA visiting family for the week and so wish I would have took pictures prior to leaving. I guess this is what happens when you have a little guy dictating your life :) no complains!!! :)

I received a box full of delicious smelling candles and hand sanitizer! Soo ready for fall! A cute pumpkin candle holder and a stuffed pumpkin that smells like October :) Nail polish...and a Starbucks card to top it off! Everything is placed around the house in its new home!

Thank you so much Sara for the thoughtful gifts!
