seven whole months

Um, where did October go??  I can’t believe this little pumpkin was born seven months ago.  He is bursting with personality!  He has so many adorable and hilarious expressions and noises.  He’s so curious and wants to grab everything he sees!  He loves jumping like a crazy man in his Jumperoo and still loves being outside, wrestling with Daddy, being snuggled, playing peekaboo, and giggling at Mom and Dad’s funny faces (and himself in the mirror!).  He loves people but has started to show the slightest hints of stranger anxiety.  We kinda sorta like this little dude. 🙂

Ashley - Those eyes. That smile. Those cheeks!! I can’t take it! 🙂 We need to see each other more often.

1/2 YEAR! (+ some)

I’m a little late posting Tate’s 6 month photos!  Can’t believe he is halfway to one.  He got to spend his 1/2 birthday with Mimi and Papa in Springfield, IL while his mom and dad photographed a wedding there.  His little (or big!) personality is coming out more and more, and he’s so interactive.  He likes to put his hands all over your face and explore it, fingers up your nose, in your mouth, eyes, etc!  He’s making all kinds of loud, funny noises – shrieks, screams, giggles, coos, shouts, sing-song noises, and more.  He’s sitting up by himself and can roll over both ways now, although he’s not moving too much yet.  He loves grabbing his feet and chewing on his toes, and is pretty much never happier than when he’s naked!  He’s still a chub – weighing 17 lbs 8 oz and sporting the super deliciously chunky thighs.  He’s enjoying his solid food and likes pears, sweet potatoes, avocado, banana, squash, and really mostly everything we give him.  He’s very social and will usually give everyone a big gummy smile!  Although speaking of gummy, he also has two teeth!  They popped through about three weeks ago.  Here’s our handsome little man:

malegra - Sorry but,

fall colors

This past Sunday we jumped in the car and headed up to the Peak-to-Peak highway to get a glimpse of the golden aspens before the leaves fall off for the winter.  It was a perfect day for leaf peeping, and Tate had one of his first “fall” experiences.  He even got to practice sitting by himself on the forest floor among the leaves and pine needles.

Ashley - The last two photos just killed me!!! You guys are so adorable and the leaves are gorgeous. Can you believe I still haven’t seen them since we lived here?? Lame!
