5 Months

Today, Peter is 5 months old.


Ben and Anna love their little brother and begged me to take their pictures with him...


Peter has learned how to roll from his back to his tummy, but seems to have skipped the step of learning to roll from tummy to back (my other two learned this one first). Today, I was practicing with him so he could start learning to sit up on his own. I didn't think he'd get it yet, because his siblings learned it when they were 6 months old, or a bit older. I let go of him to see if and how long he could balance on his own, and he had it for several seconds! He did this several times (with cheering on from his big brother).

4 Months old!

Peter turned 4 months old on October 24, 2009. He had a doctor's appointment today and weighed in at 16 pounds 8 ounces and was 26 3/4 long.

Here is a picture I took on the 24th:

On October 21st, my parents watched the older two kids for a while so it was just Peter and I in the house for a while. He was "playing" so cutely on the floor I had to take a couple pictures:

What a cutie, he's such a charmer. :)

My brother, Dean, & his family; my sister, Becky, & her family; and my family have continued the tradition of having a Halloween costume party together. We take turns hosting and this year, for the 9th annual Halloween party, it was our turn to host.

My family did a Men In Black theme (I knew I wouldn't have a lot of time to sew with fixing up the house so I went with something "easy"). Daddy, Mommy, Ben, and Anna were all [hu]men in black while Peter was Frank the pug as seen in the first movie.

I was busy finishing up dinner and ended up missing the photo sessions for my sister's family and my brother's family. Becky's family were all from Sesame Street this year.

Here come the MIBs

A shot of our living room full of party goers

Whenever these two boys are together and there's a camera around, one is obligated to get a shot like this! Peter (as Frank) and his cousin Andrew (as a Twiddlebug -minus his wings)

This was also the first year our kids went Trick or Treating, and they had a blast...even though it was very cold and windy out. I'm not sure, but I think this might be the end of the family dressing up in a matching theme. Benjamin informed me he wanted a Spiderman costume, I'm not sure what we'd all dress as to match that...I don't know about Jason but I wouldn't want to dress as the Green Goblin! lol
