WOW! Harper is almost 6 weeks! I can't believe how fast the time has gone by! She is really growing right before our eyes. She has chipmunk cheeks that are so sweet to kiss and is starting to smile and "goo" when we talk to her! She is sleeping 6 to 7 hours at night so we can't complain! I think she might be our easiest baby so far! Happy happy baby! (Except when I eat grapes! Advice: grapes + breastfeeding = fussy baby!!!) She follows Paycos and Kyler around with her eyes and loves when they talk to her. It is so sweet to watch her interact with them! Paycos is still doing great with her and so is Kyler, but she tends to be a little spastic! Kyler has also been acting out quite a bit and doing silly things that she wouldn't normally do, like, sticking play-do up her nose, stomping a cookie on the floor with her boot, throwing the little strings off of a banana on the living room floor, etc. Each day is something new!! I know this is a phase that she has to adjust to and that she's looking for attention, but she is driving me up the wall!! Lots of deep breaths!!! Paycos has now been seizure free for 2 months and is doing fantastic! He was having some "following directions" issues at home and school, then all of a sudden, he started listening better. I'm not really sure what happened, but he is really coming out of his shell. He used to be pretty quiet and shy. Now he's fighting Kyler to get some words in! (We all know how much she likes to talk!!) We are loving it and hoping that maybe we can lower his medication. We go to his neurologist in Dallas in December for an EEG and a check-up so we'll see!

We went to my mom's house to decorate pumpkins the weekend before Halloween. This was the first year that the kids actually carved their pumpkins. Usually, they just paint and decorate them with stickers, so they really enjoyed using the "big kid" knifes! Kyler had just come from a princess birthday party for one of her friends, so she was all dressed up!
Harper's umbilical cord FINALLY fell off so she had her first real bath in the baby bathtub. I had the best helper!! Doesn't that look like fun?!?!

We went to a fall festival at Kyler's school on Wednesday, a party at Paycos' karate place on Friday, and went trick-or-treating around the neighborhood on Saturday! We had the cutest Fairy, Wolverine and Mouse in the world! It was pretty chilly on Halloween night so Marilyn came over and stayed with Harper while we went trick-or-treating.

Here's just some random pictures:

Silly Face!!

Way to go dad...
