Happy Halloween

Tonight was the perfect night for an adventurous little monkey to set out trick or treating. The weather was perfect, there was a full moon, and it was a bit chilly with a light wind. It was very storybook-like. If that is a word. We even got to see the minister that married us again and we met the dog that sometimes greets us when we come outside.

Now onto the pictures.

Here we are setting out on our journey. Notice how excited he is.

And here he is afterward, a bit winded. We let him bring a couple cucumber slices and he didn't let go of them until he got home. He must get that from his Grammy and Great Granny. Doesn't he look a bit sleepy. Oddly enough, he saw nothing strange about us knocking on a lot of doors and getting candy.

Here is the bootie. Someone was nice enough to give us a little stuffed pelican. We even got some Teddy Grahams that he can eat. Though mom and dad might have to find some way to dispose of the rest.

And here are some random photos of the costume in more detail. Here he is trying it on and the second picture was us attempting to go to a Halloween Party at the wrong place, on the wrong day, at the wrong time. lol See what happens when your brain is addled by school, work, and babies?

Thanks for reading. I hope you all had a wonderful Halloween. I will try to post a bit more from now on, but no promises. :)

For Anyone Thinking About Birthday/Christmas Presents

Garanimals has released a new line of toys marketed at infants. These are available at Walmart. I was amazed at the cheap prices and solid construction. A lot of them are made of wood and I have not found any that are battery operated. :)

Azimuth does not know it, but he already has a small wire toy and a stacking ring toy. Please don't tell him and ruin the surprise. ;) Azimuth could really use a peg board and shape sorting toys. Also nesting things are good.

These are just a few ideas. Anything else you want to get him would be fine. Excluding guns and choking things. This kid loves board puzzles and momma likes him to have books. He wouldn't know if you got him hats, socks, bibs, or the like.

In future I will post more ideas as they come to me. Thank you for reading this.

Why do they have to get sick?

Azimuth is okay and there is no need to worry. But I just need to vent. He is all sleepy and he totally exploded last night. Literally. Four to six ounces :( We called the doc and got as much pedialite into him as we could. It is just so sad. He has fallen asleep in my arms a few times and I love being there for him. I just wish I could do homework at the same time... or not. I hate writing papers.

A New Movie

This is a video I have been meaning to make for some time now. Azimuth is a much better crawler and more adventurous. I hope you all enjoy.

I will also be uploading a clip of Azimuth crawling once I can figure out how to get it on the computer. Thanks for watching. :)

They Grow Up So Fast

Hello everyone. Sorry I haven't posted in a while. I have been so busy with school and work lately. I have also been crafting when I have the time. I have to sneak the fabric in at bedtime because, as you can see below, I have help. I am also going to become a literacy volunteer, so free time will be prioritized with family time at the top and blogging, sadly towards the bottom.

Look who finally got some teeth. When they finally grow in he will have buck teeth. lol

What better to do with new teeth than to eat a shoe. mmmm.

And an orange ring. What an awesome hair day.

Azimuth has gotten quite good at climbing.

And has learned to fall. :( He is so good at recovering though. But why do they have to bleed?

He also is very curious. He gets antsy if we don't take him out to explore often enough. Bu now that the snow has begun that will take a bit of creativity on our part.

Thank you to Great-Granny for sending this awesome riding toy.

It might have to wait for his birthday or Christmas. He is okay though. His first ouchie was not from this picture.

And thank you to Great Auntie for this fantastic bib. Momma is going to be making some once she pulls out the sewing machine to make a halloween costume.
