Halloween 2010

This Halloween was so much fun! The holidays are so different with a child, but I think they are better! We had a fun party on Friday night with our friends, but sadly didn't get any pictures. Then on Saturday we went to Boo at the Zoo with The Gillespie Cousins. Conner had a lot of fun toddling around the zoo, getting treats and seeing
a few animals. After a nap we visited my grandma and moms house and did a little bit of trick or treating! On Sunday, Conner kept walking around with his basket full of candy and eating everything with the wrappers on!

13 Months

Conner turned 13 months old last week! Not only is our baby 1 year old, but now he's over 1 year old! I think I need another baby! Just kidding! Our little TODDLER is becoming a ham and making all sorts of different faces and loves to get into anything and everything! But the best thing is...he has become a cuddler! Conner never really loved to be cuddled up until the past month. We will be sitting on the floor playing or watching TV and he will just come and cuddle me! I love it!

At 13 Months Conner...
~Wears size 3 diapers, size 12-18 month clothes and size 5 shoes
~Walks like crazy and loves to run but runs faster than his feet can go and usually falls down
~Climbs stairs well
~Likes Mandarin oranges, bananas, Spaghetti Os, hamburger and candy corn
~Likes to unroll the whole roll of toilet paper and stick it in the toilet
~Likes to throw his diapers away
~Doesn't really get how to use sippy cups but will suck out of a straw in a cup
~Loves to read
~Loves to brush his teeth (which means sucking on the toothpaste)
~Likes to do things when I tell him NO and laughs at it (or is he laughing at me)
~Is addicted to Diet Coke! Every time he sees me drinking one he has to have a sip

We love you so much Monkey and can't get enough of you!

First Big Ouch!

Conner had his first big ouchie on Friday! I was making a cake and Conner was playing on the floor in the kitchen. Our dog was just walking around the house. All of a sudden I heard the dog growl and then Conner scream and start crying. I ran and picked up Conner and saw him bleeding, smacked the dog and threw him outside! I was crying and shaking and thought our dog had bit him so I grabbed my phone and tried to call Chris and ran to my neighbors house. My neighbor helped calm me down and we cleaned Conner up. Chris finally called me back and we determined that he didn't need stitches and that it was just a scratch, not a dog bite. When I got back to our house I realized that on the floor was an Oreo Stick. So I'm assuming the dog wanted it. I took some pictures about an hour after it happened. I have been putting Neosporin on his cuts and he is doing great! Conner is also 13 months old today! I will do that post later!

Boo Game

I hate Halloween but as a child, I loved it. I always loved the cutesy part of Halloween though, not the blood and guts. I remember my neighborhood playing the Boo Game and I always loved it. I started it tonight in my neighborhood and hope everyone has fun playing it! For those of you who don't know what the Boo Game is... you make a Halloween treat, get a cute basket or pail to put your treat in and pass on the instructions and a ghost that your neighbor leaves in their window so everyone else knows they have been Booed! HERE is the link to the print offs if you would like to start your own game! You do have to create a login to print them off though.
