We just found out today that we're having another little boy and we are so incredibly happy about that. Everything looked good and intact and healthy. He is a mover that's for sure. He would not hold still. Luckily we got some good shots to know what he was, but every time we got a good head shot he threw his hands in front of his face or buried his head. It was fascinating to see him moving his little legs around and his arms and hands. It is a complete miracle to us that everything in the body works together at the same time to make something so amazing.

Nemo Blanket

So I am finally posting a picure of the Nemo blanket I made for Abran. It is flannel on the front and fleece on the back. Luckily it was a big hit. He made me feel like the craftiest woman on earth when I gave it to him. There was no way I was going to be able to keep this from him until Christmas.

There is a pumpkin patch out in Nibley where people love to get their kid's pictures taken. I tried with my neighbor Emily to go out there. This is one of the better pics I got of Abran with Lexi. He was just interested mostly in laying in the dirt and pooring dirt over the pumpkins.

Halloween Pics

Halloween was probably the most fun for me this year than ever in my life before. And all we did was go half way up our street and around the block and we didn't even hit every house. But Abran did fantastic...and tried to eat his candy as he went along. He sat in the stroller as we pushed him around. He'd get out and hold his own bucket...(wouldn't let me touch it)and try to knock. He even did pretty good at saying thank you. Jonathan and I just laughed as we took him around. On Friday we had some neighbor kids come down to play with Abran. Lucky for us, he was so happy to see them when he got up from his nap that he put his costume on without a fight. So I left him in it for the rest of the day. The older girls also raked my leaves into a big pile for the boys to play in and then gutted my pumpkins for me....Thank you Traicen and Atlanta! They really helped me out. We went out to dinner that night and then home to hand out candy. Trick or Treating felt brand new all over again for Jonathan and I as we experienced it through Abran's eyes. Kind of like anything we introduce him to. It is so much fun. We also put the pumpkins out and lit them up. Abran just sat there saying WHOA! WHOA! I am seriously craft challenged and he made me feel brilliant. He'd run out to the sidewalk and yell WHOA and then run up close and yell WHOA.

From left to right, we have Lexi, Tayli, Danika, and Abran. They had all been jumping on my bed and were squealing and giggling. I snapped this fuzzy picture before I cleaned all the finger prints off the lens. Abran has learned to smile into the camera and say 'cheese' from these girls.
