costume fail and big baby

Hope everyone had a spooktacular Halloween!

Preston refused to wear his fireman costume, much to our dismay. The fireman costume that he fell in love with in pictures, the fireman costume we waited daily with great anticipation for the UPS man to deliver, the fireman costume that mimics the illustrations of the fireman in his favorite book, oh, and the fireman costume I ordered online and paid shipping for.

I remember how much Preston hated his chili pepper costume when he was 10 weeks old so I decided to forgo it and make Cecilia a pumpkin orange tutu to go with her little Halloween onesie. She wore it with black tights and of course looked adorable. We went to Grandma and Grandpa Erbs for sloppy joes, to see the other cousins and sneak some candy. Everyone looked darling and had a great time. Here he is coming out of Grandpa's garage without his costume. (Notice the fireman's hat in Kevin's hand.)

Cecilia is now two months old! I cannot believe it. She's smiling a lot, talking to us and starting to really notice the world around her. Kevin and I are adjusting to being up in the night again after blissful life with a toddler who was sleeping through the night. Although she really does well and sleeps in a few hour stretches most of the time. At her 2 month appointment this week, she weighed 12 lbs 6 ounces!!! 90th percentile for weight and 75th percentile for height. She's doubled her weight in just 2 months. Fatty fatty two by four, I can hardly carry her in the beco anymore. (not really, she's bundled up in it in the fist picture below, but it rhymed.)

Just a few other shots of the past couple weeks. We've tried to get lots of park-time in since it's been warm. Have to take advantage of all the sunshine we can before it's cold and gray through March. Ugh. Dear Winter in Indiana, please be kind to us this year. I have a toddler who needs to be outside as much as possible. Thanks in advance, The Erbs.

Getting ready for the holiday season ahead- lots of fun things planned to do with the kids! Is it wrong that I want to put our tree up this weekend?

Great pictures Erin! Your family is beautiful! I too was thinking just yesterday that I wanted to put the tree up :) I know Derek will make me wait until at least Thanksgiving...I might need to sneak it up one day while he is at work haha.

Erin, First I love the blog and check it daily for updates. Emily has already put up our X-mas tree and garland over our kitchen. She even puts the lights on so everyone that drives down Calhoun street downtown now knows that we are freaks and have a X-mas tree up more than 3 weeks before Thanksgiving.
