Today was Isaac's first halloween. It wasn't the best of days since he is getting over a stinky cold, but we tried to make the best of it. We painted pumpkins with some edibile paint. Well we tried. He wasn't really into it. And when I had taken him to the bathroom to get him ready for a bath, I came back to find Harpo had licked off all the paint we put on the larger pumpkin!


He did like his costume though :-)



Here's a blurry version of the two of us

We waited for trick or treat'ers, which we didn't really have very many. 

Isaac played a little


of course after we had been standing at the door for a while and Isaac was nearing the end of his rope, we took our costumes off and starting thinking about heading to bed... THEN all the trick-or-treaters came! lol

More soup

Wow it's been a while since I have posted. We have lots of excitement happening, he started walking a couple weeks ago, actually Oct 17th. And since those first steps he is becoming quite good, Ahhh watch out. Today he was getting good standing when he fell forward on his hands and standing from a squat.

He was sick this past weekend, yesterday being the worst of the cold/stuffy nose. But today he seems to be on the up swing and much happier! Tomorrow will be his first Halloween so I will have to post our costumes.

In the mean time, just wanted to share pictures from tonight's dinner: we tackled the bread bowl :)

They usually get jumbled out of order and if I can remember I will get on the computer later to re-order them.

Twin Cities Marathon

Sunday we continued our yearly tradition of watching the marathon and cheering on some friends. I knew 4 people running (but I think our pastor didn't end of running, so really just 3. Actually just looked him up, he ran the 10 mile instead of the marathon this year). Anyway Kyle ended up seeing a LOT of people from work and school. Isaac had fun too, even though it was a little cold he enjoyed watching the runners go by and explore around himself.



The funnest part is just searching for the people you know. Then when the pacers come by it's go time in case the person you are looking for is in that pack. Here is the 4 hour pacer and his entourage.

And I took this photo just for my mom:

Pumpkin Patch

Saturday we took Isaac to his first pumpkin patch. It was rather chilly (about 40ish), but so fun to see him discover and explore pumpkins! Of course my main goal was to get cute pictures :-)



And here he is with his pointer finger, checking things out



and here is my favorite shot from the day:

Kyle's parents were in town for the weekend. It was great for them to get to see Isaac and play with him. Isaac was getting a little cold here with grandpa (and probably tired of mom taking photos of him)


We even gave him a little wagon ride, although he was cold it cheered him up a little.

First soup - Oct 2nd

Isaac has been a great little self feeder. We skipped the spoon feeding and started with finger foods (Baby Led Solids). He's had a lot of runny food but not an official soup yet. So we had grilled cheese and tomato soup a few nights ago. Like all food, he LOVED it!!! And had fun making a mess as usual.
