Bubba's 1st Halloween

The week started off with a trip to the doctor's office, Bubba. You were coughing and sounded seal like, we thought you might have croup and were wanted to see if that ear infection had finally cleared up. As we were driving to the doctor's office you fell asleep in the car. You were less than thrilled to wake up at the doctor's office.

Not sure about this pony riding thing.

They had us strip you down so they could see how much you weighed. While you were on the scale you decided it would be fun to pee. You didn't pee just once, you peed three times all over the nurse, the scale and yourself. You were quite upset at this point.

I asked the nurse how often see gets peed on and she said she had never been peed on before and she has two boys at home. I guess there is a first for everything.

The doctor who saw you was very kind. She let us know that your ear infection had cleared up, it only took a month and two rounds of antibiotics. And she put us on croup watch. We lucked out and your cold didn't turn into croup.

You are such a curious little boy.

Daddy also got his braces off. We are so happy for him! His teeth look a lot better. We went out to lunch to celebrate and you found the fries on Daddy's plate. I think you love fries as much as I do.

Doesn't he look nice with straight teeth?

We celebrated your first Halloween and celebrate we did. We started the day off with a trip to the library for story time. It was so fun to see all of the little kids and babies dressed up for Halloween.

Then we headed to Daddy's work to go trick-or-treating. You We scored on the candy! They handed out the good stuff. We enjoyed watching you grab a piece of candy and then put it back in the bowl before grabbing a new piece of candy at the next desk (you liked to trade your candies). Everyone thought you were the cutest little pumpkin!

We spent that evening with friends. We ate food and then hit up the neighborhood for some more candy. Don't worry, we didn't keep all the candy we got, we gave a good portion of it away.

Overall, I'd say it was a pretty good week! We are so incredibly blessed to have you in our lives little one. You sure make one cute little pumpkin!

And we have daffodils in November...
