Haley's HALLOWEEN party

This weekend we went to GA for Haley's Halloween party and a sip & see party for everyone to meet Anders (those pictures will come another day). But the Halloween party was so much fun -- Michael & Julie had set up several activities for the kids including painting pumpkins, making pasta noodle necklaces, decorating sugar cookies, and then there was a huge inflatable bouncer and the "bubble man". It wasn't the best weather for an outdoor party but the kids were distracted from the cold dreary weather & having fun anyway. Anders wore his pumpkin outfit & we did a horrible job taking pictures, so I don't even have a good one of him in it -- but trust me, he was SO cute :)

Haley loves holding Anders...

Pictures from this morning

Anders taking short nap this morning after feeding...

Todd SOUND asleep with Bella. I got out of the bed and was not gone long but when I came back Bella had taken my spot and snuggled up against Todd with her head on his pillow...

Anders happy in his swing this morning...

Dinner with friends

Todd was in Chicago this past weekend and brought home a frozen Chicago style pizza (so yummy!). So last night we had Sarah & Jeremy over for dinner. They are closing on a new home this Friday and moving in on Monday. So all of us are having to make furniture decisions and pick paint colors! I am going to try to help with some painting over the weekend and then Todd will help them move in on Monday.

Anders survived his 2 month Dr. appointment...

Anders had his 2 month check up on Monday morning. Todd was still out of town so Mom & Dad went with us to the dr's. Anders weighs 13 pounds & 1 ounce and is 24.5 inches long. He had to get several vaccinations but was such a champ. He just screamed when he was pricked by the needles but then fell back asleep very quickly and was out for awhile. Here he is with Papa still sound asleep when we got home...

Bella in her raincoat...

So these pictures are for Julie (my sister-in-law) and Haley (my niece) who wanted to see Bella in her raincoat. Bella always wears her raincoat to go outside if it is raining -- it keeps her dry & helps her not smell like a wet dog. She is so used to wearing it & refuses to go out in the rain without it on. All we need are little yellow galoshes for her to wear to keep her paws from getting muddy. Isn't she cute?!?

Anders is TWO months old

Anders is 2 months old now -- I can't believe it, the two months have gone by so quickly! On Monday he has his 2 month check up, so we will see how much he has grown. I think he is somewhere between 13-14 pounds but not sure exactly. Also he will get several shots at that appointment -- not looking forward to that at all! Mom and Dad are in town for the weekend so we had another "photo shoot" of Anders. He is wearing a squirrel onesie that Todd purchased for him at H&M in New York City...

The BEST cousin ever!

We got to spend time with Haley, Uncle Michael & Aunt Julie on Saturday. Haley was such a wonderful big cousin -- she held Anders a lot and did such a great job. She also was very helpful. She gave him a bath and assisted changing diapers and dressing him.

Anders loves his Aunt Julie -- she was making him smile like crazy (I just didn't capture it in this picture)!

Time with FAMILY

Anders, Bella and I went to GA this weekend to help paint my old bedroom and two bathrooms in mom & dad's house (that they are trying to sell). We had a great time with family.
