Cool Kid

Dress up time happened yesterday morning.  Pete loves putting on the glasses and the sweatband is always floating around the apartment.  I thought he was so funny that he wanted both on at the same time with the paci after his nap! A great combo to start out the morning right!

Hair Vs. Family Pictures

Our family pictures are going to be interesting this year for sure.  Phil is growing out a goatee for No Shave November and I just got my hair chopped off and when I say chopped I mean pixie!  I have been wanting this for some time and today I called to get an appointment for sometime this week and they had one open tonight, so I didn't have time to over think it.  I love it!  It is so different from what I normally do the last time it was this short was about 2nd or 3rd grade so just a bit of time has passed.  These are just a quick pics I shot in the bathroom (I use the bathroom to take the pictures so I can see what I look like in the mirror and because there is some good lighting there at 8pm)  in a hurry before my camera battery died.

Dino in the Middle

We took some family pictures to show off our new hats we got for the winter.  We decided to go with a bit wackier hat style this year.  They are really fun and mine is super warm!  Pete isn't the biggest fan of his, but everyone else is so he deals with it. Phil wore his hat to school for hat day during Red Ribbon Week.  Life is busy, but really that is just the norm around here.  We are starting to look for houses around town, though I doubt we will really start really working on it until spring.  Lately we have been thinking Eileen was lonely so today we picked her up a new friend.  I think we are naming her Millie, but that may still be undecided.  
Pete had 3 shots today, I'm finally getting around to getting his 1 year shots taken care of since they don't do them in the doctor's office.  He had too many to do in one sitting so in the next couple of weeks he get to go in for 3 more!  That is even without the Chicken Pox and flu vaccines that we are skipping. Pete has also been cutting so many teeth.  Last week he got 5 in and he is still working on some more this week.  I can't get a very good count because I value my fingers being attached to my hand when I am done!  

I've been keeping busy finishing up Halloween costumes and sewing diapers.  I had to sew Pete's outfit and knit my whole hat in preparation for it.    I've decided to do full time cloth diapers.  We have been having some issues with Luv's diapers leaking the pellets out of the diaper and onto Pete while he is sleeping.  I find it really disturbing and I've been working on building up a stash of my homemade liners and getting Pete his new size of diapers since he is right between sizes.  I'm now starting to work on some Christmas presents for everyone.  I've figured out my nieces presents and Phil's family's presents, and Pete once I finish up with a project I'm working on; but everyone else I haven't even contemplated!  It is a fun time of year and I do really enjoy working on these projects but sometimes it is daunting to get started.
