Halloween was so great this year because Easton was so excited and understood what trick or treating is all about. Easton has been so into Spiderman for some reason so he was thrilled to dress up like "Spiderman who helps people" which we taught him since he was trying to chase people {mainly Ally and Asher} with his mask on. We had to learn that Spiderman is nice not scary. Since Asher doesn't have a say yet in costumes, he was a spider.

We tried to get Easton to say, "check out these guns" but he kept forgetting...still cute though.

Bill kept making pirate faces but the rest of us look good. It is really hard to get a picture of Asher holding still!

Bill and Easton carved the pumpkins {Asher napped}.

We were lucky to spend Halloween with friends and family at the Jackman's home. Easton got to trick or treat with his best buddies and his cousin, Ellie, who was the cutest elephant I have ever seen! I absolutely love this picture!

This is a terrible picture of Blake but sadly, the best one we had! (: Easton is loving his loot of candy and so are we!

This boy is so yummy, I just had to share. Asher is 8 months old and is crawling, pulling himself up, chasing me, Easton and Ally all day, he screams and roars, he has 6 teeth, loves to eat and loves his brother.

Easton's Summer

Easton has had such a great summer even though it is deathly hot! He is so busy, crazy, energetic, mischevious but lovey and cute which save his life most days.

  • He got to do swimming lessons and learned so much. It makes me feel better since he is so fearless with the water. He can hold his breath, come up for air, kick his feet, find the wall and hold on.

  • We went to the circus as a family and he loved it. He just stared and would clap and dance to the music.

  • Easton is potty trained and caught on so quickly. We sometimes have accidents when he is playing but usually no problems.

  • He is talking so much and says hilarious things. Like we have him sleep in big t-shirts sometimes and one night he looks down and says, "i a pretty princess" HA!

  • He loves to talk to Asher and talks to him in a high-pitch baby voice.

  • He likes to be in pictures and take pictures, thank goodness for digital cameras so I can delete all the not-so-great shots

  • Easton always wants me to paint hid toenails when I am doing mine. So he is wearing a bright shade of pink.

  • He likes to help Bill with the yard and pushes the lawnmower or uses the leaf blower

  • Loves just wearing his undies around the house

  • He wants to do things for himself, he says "my do it" for everything!

He is becoming such a big and independent boy but still is a cuddler and says to me "rock you" every night for bed. {of course I don't mind that at all}

Asher: 6 months

Asher is growing up so fast that it is kinda starting to scare me! He is such a sweet boy and is a big baby like his brother was. Easton loves Asher and the feeling is definitely mutual. Here is what he is up to now:

  • Asher weighs 19 lbs 9 oz (80%) and is 28 1/4 inches long (92%)

  • He sits up mostly by himself but still needs a pillow behind him

  • He is trying to crawl, he gets on his hands and knees and rocks or in push up position

  • He can lunge forward after something he really wants {like the computer}

  • Smiles for everyone but only laughs really good for Easton

  • Has the deepest blue eyes and blondish hair with the best colic in the front

  • Asher is eating solids 3 times a day and we are starting to give him some real foods which he loves

  • He has 2 teeth on the bottom and 2 poking thru on the top {I think I can see his other 2 on the top coming next}

  • He is starting to sleep thru the night, hurray!

  • Asher falls asleep really easily, no need to rock or anything. He likes to rub his face in his blanket and with a binkie he is out.

  • He babbles, making spitty noises, loves to slap the tile floor

  • When you put him in his bumbo or if you are holding him, he frantically trys to grab at anything near by to chew on

I just can't believe that he is already 6 months and we love him more and more each day. He is so busy and interested in the world and everyone around him. We love him so much and are so happy he is a part of our family.

Laughing boy

Asher will only laugh really good for Easton which I love! I secretly wish he laughed at me too but I think it is so great how much he loves his brother. This video shows exactly their relationship. I love how Easton keeps stopping to pose for a picture too, it is classic.

Family Pics

I can't believe it took me this long for new family pics, but I LOVE them! Really, can my boys be any cuter and my hubby any hotter? I mean, I am one lucky girl!

Thanks Tara for the pics! She does a great job, here is her link.

Easton Says...

This boy says some funny things and I just wanted to quickly write some of them down so I don't forget.

  • Whenever you tell him good job for something he says, "hug" LOVE that!

  • If he gets hurt, big or small, he says, "kiss it" and then after the kiss, "all better"

  • We were playing at the park and he wanted me to go down the slide. He waited at the bottom holding his hands close together like a cup almost and he says, " go mommy, I catch you"

  • He wants to do everything for himself and he says, "mine do it"

  • When we sing songs at bedtime, his request is always "b, c, f, g's" {abc's}

  • We are on day 2 of potty training, whenever I ask if he needs to go potty he says, " no, i good"

  • We were at Target and he wants to walk of course and Asher wants out of his carseat and so I am a little flustered trying to get everything I need. A nice lady commented that she knew how I felt and I said, " it's been one of those days" and Easton looked at the lady and said, " one of those days" HA! Really!

  • He asks, "doing?" about EVERYTHING and I mean EVERYTHING! " Dirt doing? grass doing? Asher doing?" And then it goes into "going?" Oh man...

  • If he is throwing a fit and I tell him he needs to be happy to do whatever, when he calms down he says, "happy now"

The list goes on and on. Easton gives me a run for my money. He will push and test me on pretty much everything I ask him to do all day long. He used to take naps and go to bed easy but he is pushing back there too. Sheesh! (: But then he gives hugs and kisses a lot so that makes up for it! Plus he is so dang cute!
