Everett's First Pumpkin Carving

This past week my parents came up to visit and one thing we did was carve pumpkins. This was Everett's first experience with this and we thought he would dig right in. It turns out he doesn't like to get his hands gunky so he used a spoon the whole time to hollow out the pumpkin. At the bottom you can see the finished pumpkin, a Super E, just like last year. I think it has become a tradition.

Everett Uses Tools

Check out this video shot by Amy the other day. Here you can see how well Everett uses a spoon to eat some cheerios. Make sure you listen for the question at the end.

What did I do???

So, I decided to cut Everett's hair while Daddy was playing his new favorite sport - wii golf. At first the clippers worked well, but then there was a fatal error and they buzzed his head. There was no turning back....

Everett had a blast at homecoming and got to spend some good quality time with his Godparents Ali and Brian. We hope we can see more of them soon. Pictures speak best, so enjoy! Love, Amy

On second thought, maybe we should reserve visitation until he is a bit older....

As you can see from the ticker on the right Amy is 15 weeks along now. Everything is going well. She is healthy and the new baby is healthy and growing. I was able to feel it move a little for the first time the other night. Amy has been feeling it moving around for about a week and a half now. She says it feels like there is a butterfly in her belly. We haven't made any progress on names yet but we haven't gone any deeper into it than just shouting them out and immediately shooting them down.

Everett is getting bigger by the minute. He is adding more and more words to his vocabulary. He has become very good at mimicking sounds so he can repeat most things we say. His newest words are CAR and UH OH. He says PLEASE now whenever he wants something (sounds like PIECE) and he also grabs us by the hand to take us to what he wants.

We have successfully gotten rid of the pacifier for all but when he is in his crib sleeping and sometimes in the car. We have also switched him over to cloth diapers to preserve the environment a bit.

This weekend Everett's Godparents, Brian and Ali will be visiting from Florida. It should be a lot of fun, pictures to follow.
