Happy Halloween!

Cain had a great night trick or treating for the first time. He did great. Only got scared a few times. 
He went trick or treating with his cousins as Cat In The Hat and Thing 1 - Thing 2.

Here he is getting ready to leave

Cain and Mom

yay for candy!

Thing 1 and Thing 2

Here is they all are - so darn cute :)

edited to add the cutest picture ever - a tired little man with chocolate all over his face after a long night

These are from...

last week and I totally forgot to share them with you. Last Thursday I had the day off and I asked Cain what he wanted to do for the day. He told me he wanted to have a picnic. The weather was not cooperating  at all so for lunch we put a blanket on the kitchen floor and ate our lunch together.

Yes this is lunch and we stayed in our pj's all day :)

So happy to be having a lunch picnic.

Wanting to share his crackers - such a sweet boy!

Our Pumpkin Carving...

pictures from the other day...
 this is about as close he would actually get his arm to the pumpkin. 
Also yes my child is always in his underwear - he won't leave his pants on!

This is him "helping" me.

He wanted me to put the seeds on his "spoon" and he would put them in the bag.

Where did October...

go for crying out loud. I can not believe we are in the last week of the month already. We, and by we I mean me, carved our pumpkin the other night. I thought Little Bird would be more into it then he was. I forced him to hold a pumpkin seed and then he "helped" me scoop our pumpkin guts until his hand would touch anything and that was it for him. I will post some pictures of that super great fun time later. Our other pumpkin was attacked while sitting on our porch. I am not sure what (I think a squirrel) scratched it all up and ate a hole to the inside of it. Bastard squirrels.

Lots of other exciting things happening - Cain's first trick or treating experience this weekend. Cain and his cousins are going to be so adorable! Can't wait to take pictures of them. I am hoping that it doesn't rain.
Hosting a bridal shower in two weeks. Frantically trying to get all the last minute stuff done for that. My sister and her family will be here in about 25 days! We will all squeeze into our house somehow and pray that three kids under the age 2 don't wake each other up during the night.

Pregnancy related news:
-My thyroid levels are all normal - yay! I have to get my blood drawn once a week to check my levels and make sure they are stable. All of this to hopefully prevent the sickness that occurred during my first pregnancy. I don't want to be admitted to the hospital this time!
- I was planning on getting my wisdom tooth removed in the near future and I was planning on being sedated. Now I don't know what my options are going to be. My dentist doesn't want to do it at all while I'm pregnant unless it becomes an emergency. Kind of freaking out about it :(

Baby 2

That's right folks. We just found out that we are expecting baby number 2! Can't explain how excited we are. I debated on whether or not to let the cat out of the bag but I can't keep it a secret. I know some people think you shouldn't tell until after the first trimester but as soon as I got the positive on the test I had to call my family. I won't be plastering it all over facebook and stuff like that but this blog is essentially my journal, and I love looking back over time and seeing what was going on in our lives and I have to blog about it! So I am only just a few weeks along and here is my first baby bean picture (the day that we found out).
also Cain is attacking me - not trying to hug me

It is October in Michigan...

and the first time in my life that I have ever been to the pumpkin patch and was sweating. It is still so darn hot out. It doesn't really feel like fall but I hear it's on it's way at the end of the week. I guess I should just soak up the sun while it's here. In a few short months I will be bitching about how cold it is. Here are a few pictures from our quick trip to the pumpkin patch.
look at all these pumpkins

trying to pick up the big pumpkins

he is always distracted by something - this time it was a bug on the pumpkin
