Pumpkins and Candy

Last weekend we went to the pumpkin patch. It was a beautiful fall day, no rain, just sun. The little man did not quite know what to think about all of the people, animals and all of the round orange things.

Then when we found the right one we bought it and painted it at home.

What a fun mess it was. Paint on the clothes, on the chair, on the table, on the floor and everywhere else you could think of. The finished pumpkins looked great.

A great fall morning

The sun was out this morning and that meant the little man wanted to go outside. So at 9am we went outside to play. He put on his boots and I zipped up this coat and he was off and very stylish.

After we came inside I finally go a picture of his wonderful face that he makes.

My kite flying hubby

Yesterday we went to Chambers bay to do some kite flying. Well... what I really mean is the hubby flew kites while the little man and I looked on. The weather was beautiful. It was windy but there was not one cloud in the sky. Kite flying season will be over soon so I guess I can put up with a few more weeks of this.

The little man really enjoys watching his daddy fly and I really dont mind it that much. There is a wonderful trail all around the field and a great view of the sound.
Please pray for my hubby's mom (the little mans grandma) she is in the hospital with phenomena.

Rest in peace Grandma

It has been a year. Wow all the things that have happened. It still brings tears to my eyes to know that the little man will never get to know his Great Grandma (his Oldamor).

Oh no

Yesterday just before bed he was playing in his play room and I was in the kitchen doing dishes (like always) when he came running down the hall yelling "oh no". The first thing that I thought of was he went pee pee in his pants (that is wat he says when he has an accident). But at first glance they were dry. So I asked him where is the oh no. He went running back into the playroom and there on his picnic table was a puddle. No it was not what you were thinking it was just water from his cup. He had knocked his big boy cup over and wanted me to get him a rag so he could clean it up.

If you have not been over in a while or ever you have not seen what the playroom looks like so I added a few pictures of it when it is clean. I had to store away two boxes of toys, two riding cars and a rocking horse to fit his climbing toy in the room.

At 17 months I did not think my son would become attached to a cartoon character since he does not really watch much TV, but he is. He loves Elmo. Anything that has big eyes or is red is called "mell-mo".

Today we were driving in the car and he was playing with a little Grover toy (pictured below with the underwear). He gave it a big hug, rocked it in his arms and called it "mell-mo". He than began to kiss it over and over again. It was so cute I wanted to pull over on the side of the freeway and take a picture.

He also has so many pairs of Elmo underwear that there is no reason that he cant wear Elmo everyday. Sometimes when he is wearing Elmo underwear he points to the Elmo in the front and says "mell-mo". The fist time he did it around my hubby he got all worried that he is going to start calling his pee pee Elmo.

Just a few of the many pairs underwear

Today when we were out at the thrift store I found him an Elmo Halloween outfit for 99 cents.

My wonderful view

I was standing at the sink doing the dishes and looking out the window. It was such a wonderful view I just had to take a picture.

And when I turned around I saw the best view in the world.

Thank you Grandma

The little mans Grandma (my Mom) made him a new blanket and cute pumpkin hat. He is not quite sure about the blanket. He still wants to have his other one and if he does want to carry around the new one the has to have the original one also. I dont think we will ever be able to replace the original blanket but it is nice to have a back up.
The original and the new blankets

As for the pumpkin hat he does not like it. I think that it is so cute but he will not keep it on his head (its not just this hat it is every hat right now). I was able to get one OK picture of him in it.

Just before it came off

Thank you Grandma for the gifts they are very thoughtful.

Wet outside but dry inside

I guess yesterday we got our first fall rain. The little man and I really enjoyed it. We sat at the window and watched everything get all wet and when it stopped raining we put on our "puddle" boots and went splashing in the water. Our new sky lights that my hubby and his father put in a few weeks ago did not leak either. Wahoo!!! Bring on the rain.

Also the little man had his first day with any accidents yesterday!!!!!! Even when we were out and about when he was in the nursery at church. When he woke up from his nap dry I thought to myself "WOW, he as been dry all day" but I did not want to say it out loud because I thought I would jinks myself. Hopefully today it will only be wet outside again.

Showing off his very cool elmo underwear (one of the few that fit him)

We are on day three of underwear. All is going well.
Day one- started with many accidents in the morning and he did not care that he wet all the way down his leg.
Day two- started off great. No accidents until 0ne pm than there were three in a row. After the three accidents than he was dry for the rest of the day.
Day three- we will see how it goes. We have already made two successful trips to the potty.
I will try and post some pictures later. I have not really had time to get out the camara in a few days.
