Happy OWLoween!

Crockett's first halloween was a blast! It was drawn out over 3 days which made for a lot of fun! Crockett's Aunt Emma helped Michael and I pick out the owl costume. We bought it on eBay and thought he was the cutest little owl ever! 

We spent Saturday morning at a fall party at Reid & Gracelyn Aderholt's house. Crockett spent the whole party starring and watching all of the big kids. He is very observant. 

 Allison had the perfect fall picture background set up in their beautiful backyard!

Taking a break from being an owl to swing!

I really cannot wait for more play dates with this precious little girl! 

Another attempt at a group picture. It is comical trying to get this many little ones  to all face forward and smile! 

Crockett was confused by Gracelyn's tutu. He couldn't stop starring! 

Our 2nd Halloween party was at the Garrison's house on Kitty Kat Lane. It was a blast- a true small town cul de-sac party!

Crockett was a trooper and wore his costume so well!

Crockett and Brody enjoyed playing in the leaves and grass. 

Mimi came to the party too!

Our little owl sitting and playing all by himself. I thought the back of his costume was just as cute as the front!

Cousin Eli and cousin Cullen were there too! Aunt Laura MADE their costumes... so impressive! 

Eli is such a sweetheart and LOVES his littlest cousin!

Yep. We even had a silly string fight!! 

Crockett wasn't too sure about the silly string!

After the cul de-sac party, Michael took Crockett over to the Yost's house. I went to BSF, so I missed out on the trick-or-treating. 

Word on the street was that Crockett smiled and showed a sense of relief once his costume came off... can't say I blame him!

It was a fabulous first halloween! Our little owl was precious and we got to eat the trick-or-treat candy... without having to explain to Crockett where it all went! {Bliss}

8 Months

Crockett turned 8 months old on November 3, 2011. He is at a really fun age... he loves to sit and stand {supported} but has no interest in crawling as he still HATES to be on his tummy. He smiles and laughs a lot. He sleeps 12+ hours at night and takes 2 naps every day!

He weighed 20.3 lbs and measured 28.3 inches at the doctor on Thursday. 
We went in because he has a diaper rash turned yeast infection... poor little guy!

Thursday, November 3rd will be a night I will never forget... Crockett literally did not sleep. He whimpered, moaned and cried all night. We tried everything to comfort him... we even put him in bed with us. Long story short, he has a cold and is teething. Poor little guy! 

Our little guy is eating solids 3 times a day and nursing 4 times. He loves to be outside and still hates his car seat. We go to Gymboree 2 times a week. Crockett {and mommy} love the girls that are in our class!

We move next Friday, so Crockett will celebrate his 9 month birthday in our rent house! 
{I should be packing but I'm really trying to be better about blogging!}
