2010 Pumpkin Carving

A few weeks ago Issabella, Seth, Casi, Sam, Nichole, Wrigley, and Granny went over to Dad and Linda's for some pumpkin carving.

This was Issabella's first time with a pumpkin and she seemed intrested in the pumpkins.

I think she was trying to fit into the pumpkin.

Here Granny is reading Issabella her farm book.

Maybe next year Issabella will pull out her own pumpkin guts!

6 Months

Dear Issabella,

On October 21, 2010 you turned 6 months old! Mommy took you to the doctor on 10-25-10for your check up. You had to get three shots and you were not to happy about that. You were fussy the rest of the day. Daddy and I had a bet going. We always do when you go to the doctor. We try to see who guesses your weight correct. Daddy guessed 14lbs 6oz and I guessed 14lbs 2ozs. You only weighed 14lbs, so we both lost!

We had your six month picture taken on 10-22-10 and you were not super excited about it. You only gave us big smiles when Cooper the dog was playing with you. You could not get enough of that little dog.

Here is what we remember about this time...
*you are taking baths in the "big" tub
*you can sit up
*you still have no teeth
*you don't like to sit still
*you have been sleeping 10 hours getting up drinking a bottle and then going back to sleep for 2 hours
*you can pull yourself up while holding on to mommy
*you still love to swing
*You are pretty talented with your pacifier

We Love You Peanut,
Daddy and Mommy

Pumpkins in the Park 2010

Saturday Issabella, Casi, Lisa, Logan, and I did the 11th annual Pumpkins in the Park in Chicago. We had a great time and Issabella and Logan dressed up. Issabella was a peacock and Logan was a monkey! Everyone commented on how cute the were. I think they were cute too.

They were very interested in the leaves and pumpkins.

When I got done walking Lisa had already finished because she ran. She said she had to stop and change a diaper and I told her I stopped becasue I had to feed Issabella. Boy have times changed from when we ran our other races....but it is oh so good.

Issabella telling me..."Mom, please stop taking my picture and unsquish my face!"

What a Week.

It all started with you being peed on by a tree frog. He hopped on the tray of your stroller and you had no fear and reached down and picked him up. As soon as you touched him, he peed all over your neck. Daddy had to pull the little guy out of your grip.

Your first tooth is starting to poke through. You are putting anything in the left side of your mouth to chew on.

You attended your first fun fair. For the first hour mommy carried you in the carrier and you laughed and giggled while all the people commented on how cute your were and how pretty the sunflower was in your hair.

Today at the farmers market you were the main attraction. Everyone kept pointing and telling other people to look at you. Multiple people stopped us and said how happy and what a beautiful smile you had. At one point when mommy was buying something you stared down two ladies. When they finally said hi to you, you smile and babbled back. They commented on how you waited to smile til they said hi to you. I said that you get that from the dog. He does the same thing.

Here are some pictures of you in your flower head band from today.

Here is a picture from you discovering that you could see the (baby) in the reflection of daddy's note book.

Love you peanut!
