My parents came up to visit the kids this weekend... We went to the “Legend of Sleepy Howell” event downtown on Saturday. We are surely getting our use out of their Halloween costumes this year! Recent pics below:

We went to Spicer's Orchard this weekend like we do every year. We went with all the neighbors and all the kids got to try out their Halloween costumes early! Plenty of pics and a video below of Kendal on a rip cord.

Happy Birthday Aunty Mandy!!!

Man is it hard to keep up with this blog.

Our little baby is now six months old. The time is flying by. She is still our sweet little peanut. She hasn't had her official six month well visit but her appointment last week she weighed in at a whopping 12 lbs and 14 ounces (5th%), hey at least she is gaining weight. I will be happy to be out of the 0-3 month clothes hopefully soon since they are all wearing out and getting holes from being washed so often, and I refuse to buy new ones. She is rolling all over the place, sitting up supported and loves to shake her rattles. She is doing better with her bottle and is a good eater with a spoon. I think so far her favorite foods are peas and sweet potatoes. She loves to stand up, and enjoys standing up next to furniture.

Kendal is good as always. She is obsessed with princesses right now. She loves to wear dresses and princess crowns with pretty necklaces. She tells everyone that she is a princess and that her mommy tells her that. Mommy and Daddy are kings according to Kendal. I am working on the queen title for me. She loves her sister and is always giving Hayden toys, paci's, and her bottle. Kendal loves to read books; she even has one memorized and reads it back to you. We are working on the whole potty thing. She is wearing princess underwear (pull-ups), and we are getting better every day.

Enjoy some new pictures.

So what has happened over the last month...? I could likely go on and on but I will try and make it short.

- We got Hayden's ears pierced! She was a trooper and barely cried. You will see them in many of the pictures below.

- We took a trip to Toledo for Massari's wedding. Except for the Bucks getting smoked, the weekend was perfect. Marnie and I had a great time together. My parents came up to watch the kids.

- Hayden is finally growing! She is on some medicine for reflux and we seem to be managing it well enough. She is back to sleeping through the night! We (actually just Marnie) started giving her baby food as well. She seems to like it.

- Kendal is well... Kendal. She amazes us everyday with new things she figures out or new phrases she says. If we could only get her to use the potty every time… How about go to bed before 10pm... soon enough.

- We spent a day down at the lake with the Abbotts. It was nice to get in one more nice day outside before winter rolls in. We had to turn the heat on last night! On the way down we took a pit stop at an apple orchard so the kids could see the animals.

Other than that, business as usual. Take care everyone! Pics below:
