Halloween Fun

When we were pregnant with Wyatt, we called him WeeBe - Brendan coined the phrase "we be having a baby" and WeeBe just stuck. A lot of our friends from church still call him Weebs! Last year, we went to a local pumpkin patch and found the Wee Bee pumpkins - it will be a yearly tradition to pick out a Wee Bee pumpkin with our little WeeBe!

We spent Halloween with my dad, Quinn and Sheena. We watched a lot of football, ate some good soup, and even did a little trick-or-treating! Wyatt loved the wagon ride and even grabbed a few pieces of candy out of the bowls. He tried walking up to the doors, but the costume made him a little top heavy! Cutest little puppy ever!

Fall, Footsteps, and First Haircuts!

Here are a couple of pictures of Wyatt's first haircut. It took several distracting tactics to get him to cooperate - the mudge, a hairbrush, an entire box of tissues, and a whole slew of bathtub toys. Overall, a pretty good haircut from Wyatt's stylist - Daddy!!

Another trip to the zoo, this time with Grandpa Mark and Mama Lynn. He loves the seals, giraffes, hippos and elephants! He woofs when he sees all animals now!
Wyatt's new favorite toy (at least for the moment) - a Halloween slinky!
He likes to wear it as a necklace!
Wouldn't you know it . . . Wyatt took his first steps and I didn't have my camera with me! We were in Home Depot, in the tool section and Wyatt took a few wobbly steps to me - it made Brendan ecstatic! These are pictures from later that evening - it seemed necessary to document the day, and that he was wearing camo and overalls when he took his first steps! He is definitely Brendan's little boy!!

We got together with some friends for some pumpkin carving, wagon rides, and dirt cake and worms! Wyatt was the only kiddo who enjoyed digging through the pumpkin guts - and every now and then tried to sneak a bite of some pumpkin seeds.

Early in October, we went to a pumpkin festival and met up with 3 gals I went to Elementary school with (and haven't seen since jr. high) and their families. It was so much fun catching up with old friends, and enjoying all of the FREE fall activities!
Wyatt loved the petting zoo, especially the soft bunny!
