Happy Halloween!


Here is Daddy and the boys before going Trick or Treating.  Daddy and Tia went with Niko and I stayed home with Ryker.
Niko was Iron Man.
Ryker was the Incredible Hulk.

 Closeup of the boys.

Tia Maria came over to Trick or Treat with Niko!

Pumpking Carving

Roll up those sleeves!

 Grab the guts!  He touched them and then pulled his hands out.  He then told me to pull out the seeds.  Wimp.

 Daddy carved the pumpkin this year.  Niko picked out the pattern at the store... like "I WANT SPIDERMAN PUMPKIN!"

Captain Adorable

 Ahhhh... an oldie but a goodie!  This onesie was Niko's years ago, but I love it!  Totally appropriate for not only Halloween, but for children of nerds.

 Big brother with his nerdy shirt jumped into the photo.

They were both looking at the cat.
 Awww... again....

 Tickle tickle!

 And... again.... the photo shoot is over.

For fun, this is Niko in the same onesie about 4 years ago.

Two Month Check-up

Ryker had is two month appointment today.   Doctor said he was in great health - no more jaundice!  YAY!  Best news of the day... the fact that he had to get 4 shots was not.

He's 22.5" long (35%) and weighs 11 pounds 6 ounces (45%) and his head measures at 15.5" (36%).  Not to shabby considering he was in the single digits for most of those measurements when he was born!  :)

Rollie Pollie

Ryker hates tummy-time.  I mean HATES it.  The second I put him on his tummy, he starts to scream.  Well, he has channeled his hatred for tummy-time into his first roll-over!  

This video is actually his third one...  I was shocked when he did it the first time.  Then I thought it was a fluke, until he did it again!  So I grabbed my phone and sure enough, he did it once more.  This time was much slower... but the same amount of crying.  

Not too shabby considering he's only 8-weeks-old!

Pumpkin Patch

We went to the Pumpkin Patch this weekend.  I know it doesn't look like it from the photos... this patch has TONS of stuff for kids to do... and we did them all.

 Hehhheheh... cuties.

 Little man was checking things out.

 Niko's pumpkin.

 All three pumpkins.

 Niko picked out Ryker's pumpkin.

 Tire swings.

Playing in the fort.

So we went to the pumpkin patch, but Niko's favorite thing to do was panning for gold.  Sigh.

Swing Time

Don't let these photos fool you.  I have been a very grumpy bear today - the hypnotic bird song of the swing seems to be the only thing that can lure me into sleep....

Little Brother

 Took some quick pictures of Ryker in his 'Little Brother' onesie.  I am amazed how much he looks like his brother now!

 Little feet.

   And the photoshoot is over.  :)
