Carving pumpkins on Hallowe'en

We carved pumpkins on Hallowe'en this year instead of going trick or treating. With Tatus' busy, busy work schedule, it was hard to find an evening where we could all just sit around the table.

I started carving mine first, and then Tatus gave you a closer look:

I made a happy pumpkin, and I think you liked it:

Then we read stories while Tatus carved his pumpkin:

Finished pumpkins:

Visiting Babcia & Dziadek--too much good food!

First the blueberries and strawberries...which stained your fingers purple...
here you can see carrot juice on your shirt, and you are getting stuffed:
So you took a break from eating to plaly with Babcia's rings:

And finally, carrot cake. That's kind of a big mouthful...So instead of gagging on it, you enlisted Tatus' help. Well done!

Mama logic fails

So I picked you up this toy box from Ikea thinking that because it has a soft lid, you wouldn't try to climb on it. With a very proud smile, you proved me wrong.

Another walk in the park

We are so lucky to have such a big, beautiful park so close to our home. This is where you and I walk one or two times a day. There's always lots to explore!

Wow! Throwing leaves.

Me and my sweetheart:

Brushing teeth

We recently started a routine of brushing your teeth before bed. I probably got on this way too late, but your teeth are still pearly white so I'm not to worried. Now that you are getting molars, though, it's good we are sticking to a schedule.

Brushing your teeth is tricky. You just want to suck the toothpaste off the brush. We mash the toothpaste into the brush so you can't just eat it all in one go, but you end up getting it all anyway. So we have to be fast to get your teeth brushed while there's still some toothpaste to brush them with.

After we are done and have rinsed your brush, we let you practice and we show you how we brush our teeth. That's what Tatus is doing here. Notice the grip you have on his toothpaste tube.

A new lala

This is the lala (doll) that your pra-dziadek Kaziu and pra-babcia Zosia (great-grandfather and great-grandmother) gave you in Poland:

Who looks cuter?

I'd say it's a tie! :)

Our sleeping princess

Today you didn't want to go in your crib for your afternoon nap, so you hung out with me in the beanbag chair until you flaked. ... a much easier alternative to listening to you cry in your crib till you fell asleep.

Our little bookworm

Tip #1

When Tatus is utterly pooped from work and really needs a nap while you need to make dinner...Give your LB some metal and/or plastic things from the kitchen to bang and play with (thus imitating you in the kitchen) while you prepare dinner. Worked like a charm for me!
Then, when all the banging by your little helper wakes Tatus up and he offers to peel the potatoes and carrot, sit with your LB and relax.
