Happy Halloween!

So if you didn't know, I'm pregnant, and that equates to me being REALLY lazy with this year's Halloween costumes...if you'll remember last year's Halloween, I went all out and had everything planned a month before the event. This time, it was all last minute (literally). Thankfully, Wyatt never has a say in what he's dressed up as, or even cares, so he didn't mind and still ended up being super cute.

Introducing the cutest Cardinals football player around!

We've got him saying "TOUCHDOWN!" 

This year my parent's ward and my in-law's ward combined the trunk or treat activity, so Wyatt got to see everyone at was really fun! (Wyatt didn't go around collecting candy though, but he did help pass it out!)

Of course he begged for a few pieces too...
('ll notice he ALREADY has a sucker in his mouth...)

Matt and Shannon and the other cousins were there too! We've got Jacob who dressed up as Iron Man, and Lilly who was a fairy

And I didn't really dress up, except to accentuate my belly as a pumpkin...

 ...and these are the best shots your getting because I didn't think to get my face in the pictures...again, it's all about the kids, right?


The cutest little man around.

Hope you all have a good Halloween!!

keepin' you posted...

 So I was noticing this was my 100th post of the year...and then I also noticed I have less than 100 days left in my pregnancy...90 days, to be exact...and...well, that's crazy.

I don't feel like I'm getting much bigger with each week (even though I already feel huge), but I know by the end I'll be thinking, 
"27 weeks?! That was TINY!"

...anyway...not much has been going on. I had my glucose test for gestational diabetes today--and anyone who knows, knows it's AWFUL. You have to fast 12 hours before drinking the stuff...and then when you do, it's nothing satisfying, but overwhelmingly toxic. Like...super, super, SUPER sweet--almost so sweet it burns your throat going down. YECHT.
...hopefully I passed.

Well, it's definitely time for bed...Halloween is in less than a week and I've got to hurry up and finish some costumes...more to come on that soon!! ;)

bum up

I never understood why kids find it comfortable to sleep like this--bum up in the air. It cracks me up though...

So this kid here will be 2 in less than a does that happen??! 
I haven't even really begun to plan a birthday party, and I feel a little bad, but not really...I mean, he's not even going to remember it. BUT, I do already have his gifts, and I think if we do decide to have a party it's going to be super low-key, and EASY. I'm all about the easy these days, haha! My sister's wedding is also in less than a month so we've got that going too, plus Halloween and then Thanksgiving and then CHRISTMAS is all within the next 2ish months...busy, busy, busy!! Thankfully baby#2 won't be here until after the madness is over :) I can't wait though!!

I've been really pathetic with the picture-taking lately, so this is a smorgasbord of some recent happenings...

Because the weather has been so autumn-like and WONDERFUL, I took Wyatt to the park last week. He is in love with sand. I didn't get a picture of it, but he would crouch down and just run his hands through it over and over and over again. He especially like the ducks as well, saying, "cack, cack, cack" (he hasn't really mastered the 'qu' sound yet...)
He's saying "hi!!" in the picture...

 This is just funny...well, because he's a goofball. (Anyone know what we're watching in the background??)

On Tuesday my mother-in-law took Shannon and I and the kids to the Phoenix Children's Museum...
I'd never been and it's so awesome! Everything is kid friendly and meant to be touched or played with or ridden. Wyatt had so much fun in the little market with his grocery cart...thanks Grandma!!

And lastly, just showing off the progress I'm making...25 weeks down, only 15 to go!!

Wyatt's really good at giving kisses when he's asked for one...maybe not ALL the time, but most of the time...the other night I tried to see if he'd give the baby a kiss and it was the cutest thing:

...and I'm still not sure he actually understands there's a baby...he knows what a baby is, and when I ask him "Where's the baby?" he'll point to my tummy, but I don't think the actual connection is there. But it's cute all the same :)

Mommy's shoes

I really hate that I never have my camera at JUST the right moment...

...but this will have to do, and it's still really cute. Right before I ran upstairs to fetch the camera he kept saying "Shoes! Shoes! Shoes!" 
...and then when I asked him to say it again ON camera, he wouldn't. 

Oh, but don't worry, he said it again as soon as I stopped recording.

ANYWAY, this is the first time he's actually succeeded with this certain task, and I'm SURE it's because he's finally found a pair of my shoes that aren't high heels or flip flops, haha!

Oh, and how 'bout those pajamas?! Haha!
