Just in time for Halloween... a jack-o-lantern!

With Katen being out of daycare this entire week we've had lots of fun.

She and mommy went shopping for pants one day. (For both of us.) Katen's 3 month size pants are finally too small so we need some 6 monthers so she wasn't wearing high waters anymore. We've been passing them off as fall cropped pants long enough. ;) We also found a cute book at Baby Gap that has a finger puppet built in. It's about a ladybug and the face of the ladybug is the puppet. Katen gets a real kick out of that and she's finally really sitting in my lap long enough and interested enough to read a book or two at a time.

If you look closely you can see the rash.

Another day we ran a few errands, got groceries, and brought home a couple of jack-o-lanterns. We tried taking a few pictures but Katen really hates grass. Hate might not be a strong enough word. She hasn't been exposed to much grass because of her awful outdoor allergies and sitting her in it without socks about put her over the edge.

On Friday, Daddy came home early to relieve Mommy so we all went to a local apple orchard. There Katen carefully picked out a pumpkin and we were even able to snap a picture of her standing all by herself. (My goodness she's growing up so fast! It's nuts!) We also brought home some apple and pumpkin pie.

...and just in time for Halloween, (so she can look like a jack-o-lantern too) Katen is finally getting her first teeth in. The bottom front two are working their way in which is causing the poor kid a lot of grief.

Do you think she has enough toys?

So is her Halloween costume. We tried it on to see if it would fit okay. She was SO.Not.Impressed. Good thing we didn't go with the Lamb costume.

It's Sunday night now our little pickle is peacefully sleeping. Her rash has finally receded and life has to go back to normal tomorrow. We'll get up at the crack of dawn. She'll scream like mad and wiggle in every direction while I do my best to change her diaper and dress her. (It's like nailing jell-o to the wall.) Then she'll tell me "na na" (no, no?) and crawl off as fast as she can to go find Daddy. I'll get showered and dressed while she takes a bottle and watches sports center with Dad. Then we'll head off to daycare and work. I'll realize half way to work that I'm still listening to baby songs... and love every minute of it.

Typical Katen. Running around with one sock on and one sock off. I'll find the match laying somewhere all soggy. I hope it tasted good.
