Ethan is now 6 months old!

Ethan's six month mark came with plenty of time at the pumpkin patch this week. I can't believe he is six months old. It still feels like he is a little tiny baby, except... He is growing to 19 pounds now and is practically out of his little carseat. Not to mention, he is reaching and grabbing everything. He is grasping like crazy and is even inching his little bottom to try and move around. He is too cute. Although, I do have to say, we have developed some bad habits with him being the third kiddo.

We are working on that this month, better sleep at night and getting better at laying him down in the crib. I just want to rock him all of the time.

Kindergarten is really starting to set in for her and I think it is this time that she really begins to settle in. The teacher has already seen her at her most tired time, it can only get better from here. We have been having some more one on one time too and we are digging that since I don't have her home until 3. We made some little ghosties for the tree after school and we are going to do some more crafts after school as some fun time.

Jackson is a talker. He wants to talk about everything. I took him with me to my brother's birthday dinner on Saturday and we had the longest conversations back and forth to the dinner.
I can't hardly hold him now too. He is three and 38 pounds. I think he will definitely take his sister in the next couple of years.

Here are some fun pictures of the kiddos. We have had tons of fun at a couple of pumpkin patches.

What have we been up to?

Well, I definitely think no matter what stage of life you are in, the fall just gets busy. Everyone feels good after a long, hot summer, when the weather cools down. Pumpkins and hay are all around. A good Baylor football game is on or so we heard about.

Well, we have had birthday parties and trips and visitors all over here. We went to Ville Platte to visit Brandon's family, we had cousin's birthday party and we went to Horseshoe Bay last minute for an ADP trip with our little family. It was a fun, quick trip. These resort hotels are great for little kids; the pools and little beach areas keep them busy for hours and wears them totally out.

Not to mention, Ethan is growing like a weed. He has a little cough we can't get rid of and he is teething big time. We are having our little issues with giving him a bottle and eating baby food, but nothing too bad. He definitely has a little sensitive stomach. I had a big glass of milk the other day and oh, that was bad. He had gas the whole day, poor thing. He just reminds me of why we love to have babies around. They are so happy and fun. He is so sweet.

Kaitlyn and Jackson are as busy bees as ever and just want to learn more and more. I think Brandon and I are having a tough time keeping up. Oh, what have we done? I always think things will slow down, but they haven't yet. When will that happen, I don't know, but sure would like a little break before the holidays come. We are going to Kansas City for Thanksgiving!

Here are some pictures from the month's activities.
