Some halloween pictures...

This last Saturday Jared took us out to breakfast to this place on the square called, "Bottletree." Apparently Oprah Winfrey broadcasted part of her show once at the Bottletree because it is one of her favorite places. It's pretty popular around here too! They make pastries, breakfast croissants and all kinds of yummy bakery goodies for breakfast and lunch. It was pretty tasty.

It was so nice to get out of the house this last weekend! Sometimes I find myself going stir crazy all cooped up at home. Don't get me wrong, I am so grateful to able to stay home with my baby! But sometimes I wish we had more to do.

Anyways, the leaves have started to change colors and the temperature has started to drop. ( Not nearly as cold as Utah, thank goodness!) And the humidity seems to have disappeared. Yay! But they say it will warm up again soon. Which will be nice, I really like the warm weather. Oh yes, I almost forgot the reason for this post all together! We had heard about a little pumpkin patch at an old church and wanted to take some pictures of the baby and our family. So I wanted to post a couple of fun pictures we took. It was pretty cold that day, really windy . We didn't take a lot of pictures because of that but it was fun anyway. So here you go!

He didn't last too long in this pose!

Here are some fun pictures!

Our baby is now almost 6 weeks old! We cannot believe how fast time has gone by. He is growing so fast it seems! We enjoy every minute of being parents to this sweet little boy.

Christian is now making all kinds of cute noises but isn't really cooing yet. He seems to want to smile sometimes, but he isn't quite there yet. He loves to be held and seems to really like music. He also likes his back tickled, like his mommy! We like to go on walks through the neighborhood in his stroller. It puts him to sleep like a car ride!

He really is a good baby. Usually the only time he cries is when he's hungry or has a tummy ache. It's pretty cute when daddy is trying to get him to calm down, Jared will dance arond the house with him and Christian really likes it! And for those of you that know Jared, you know that he loves to tease Christian. ") It is one of his favorite things to tease him when he is hungry. The baby is pretty dang cute when he gets hungry.

We look forward to coming home for Christmas so those who haven't met him can have a chance to hold and kiss this sweet little guy. He is such a joy! He is mommy's little friend especially when daddy is at school. We just love him so much!
There are so many pictures we have taken and I didn't realize we haven't posted any of them really since he has been home. So here is a little taste of what you all have been missing...or should I say ya'll?

Here he is just a few days old. Petty cute, eh?

Daddy & the baby!

We gave him his first sponge bath and as soon as I took his diaper off he pooped all over me!

I love this picture! Christian is pushing Jared away!
