Happy Halloween!!!

It's been a while since the last time that I published a post...whoops! So, what is up with me...well...It's Halloween today. We are taking Brendan Trick or Treating tonight to a few houses that we were told he needed to make an appearance at. He is going at Darth Vader!!! Isn't that just too awesome??? While most other babies we know are dressing up as puppies or flowers or chickies or something else cutesy...We are dressing him up as a Villian. We ROCK! Then we will come home and hand out some candy...I love Halloween!
Oh and Brendan is now 5 months old. The photos above are some random shots that I have taken over the last couple of weeks. So starting at the bottom and moving to the top...the first picture shows Brendan practicing his motorboat sounds; The next picture out after a great workout in the jumping horse; the next picture, his 5 month photo shoot with mommy; another picture of him completely out after jumping in the horse; and the last photo was taken out at Great-Aunt and Uncle Anderson's Farm where we picked out a pumpkin for carving and got some great pictures with the tractors in the background!
So, at 5 months Brendan...
*babbles and laughs more each day
*has not quite perfected the art of rolling, but is almost there
*gives out the biggest of smiles for his daddy...whenever his daddy is around!
*loves to play with his toys and is really good at picking them up and getting them in his mouth
*figured out how to jump when he plays in his jumping horse and loves it!
*has eaten rice cereal a little bit...finished it all last night, which was a first!
*giggles up a storm when we sing the alphabet song and the Do-Re-Mi song from Sound of Music
*Sleeps through the night for the most part...he's had 3 nights in a row of 8 hour sleeps
*is definately teething right now...runny nose, fussy, constantly biting down hard on his toys and any finger he can get his hand on
*is wearing 6 month, 6-9 months and some 9 month clothing
*wears size 1 shoes and size 3 daipers
*weighed 18 pounds 4 ounces on Friday October 24th
Well, that's it for now...have a great and SAFE Halloween!!!

Picture Day!!!

So today we took Brendan in to get some pictures taken of him. I was really nervous that he was going to be crabby and not want to have his picture taken; I'm so glad that I was totally wrong. He was so adorable and we got some super cute shots (we ended up purchasing the picture disk...). I can't wait for our photos to come in on October 23rd!!!

Pedal Pub B-Day Celebration

The Birthday Dad!!!!

In honor and celebration of my Daddy's 60th Birthday, my mom rented this Pedal Pub. It was so much fun!!! The premis of the Pedal Pub is everyone sits at the "bar" and sits on bike seats and pedal the pub down the road. We did a route in St. Paul down West 7th Street. There were a few seats that did not have pedals and the back seat was just a bench without pedals. Also, one person was in the middle to play bartender. If you ever get a chance, you must do the Pedal Pub. Now my legs are sore, my knees are sore and my butt hurts, but I'm so glad we did this together!!!
