Nothing too exciting...

Mr. Sticker-nose...he kept this sticker on his nose from the time he got it (at Target) until the time we got home (about 20 minutes later).

Putting on "chapstick" with a pen cap

No, we weren't locked out of the house. Mitch had a fever and had been inside all day and was acting like he needed to get out for a while. It was raining and chilly but we decided it might be fun to read books on the porch while snuggling under blankets.

This is what it looks like when 2 parents are trying to get dinner ready and Mitch is left to play!

Pumpkin Patch etc.

"Ready to go" Pajama day at school

My sweet little boy...

We went to a pumpkin patch last Saturday, got a late start because Mitch took a long nap so we were there as the sun was setting. It was actually pretty cool, we rode on hay bales on top of flat beds pulled by a tractor which I think was the high light of Mitch's evening.

We weren't the only ones out there late though!

Mitch's pumpkin (still too heavy for him to carry back the whole way).

Happy October

So this is a rather large posting of pics, hope no one minds! Here's MItch with a pumpkin sent to him by (Kate's) Aunt Laura and Uncle Dale. It's very soft and squishy and MItch loved it immediately-Thanks!

Last weekend Mitch's friend, Elliot turned 2 and we went to a birthday party for him. It was mostly adults with a few kids (not a bad ratio if you ask me) and Mitch had a great time playing with new toys! Here are the two of them giving hugs...

...and reading a book with Brooke.

Bicycling with Mom on the floor

Mitch covered Charlotte up with his blankets the other day and wanted to snuggle. Talk about sweet! I can't believe Charlotte kept them on long enough to have lots of pictures taken. Though she does like to be tucked in at night, she probably wishes Mitch would do this more often!

And then walking home with Dad

Wearing Dad's hats

One new thing Mitch has been enjoying recently is taking his socks off and putting them on his hands. I call him Mr. Sock-Gloves and he thinks it's pretty funny. Here he was before a bath, totally naked except for his sock-gloves.

We had another playdate with Mitch's friend, Gillian from his first daycare. They still have the best time together and are pretty cute to watch run around. Here they are taking a break from playing and sharing a snack. (which for Mitch means eating all of Gillian's goldfish crackers).

Silly time and posing for pictures before going home.
