Guest Blogger - I am Natalie (3 months)

Hee hee!  I turned 3 months old this week!  And it is hilarious being 3 months!  Let's dive right in to this VERY busy month!
 I discovered my hands.  And now I really like to eat them.  All.  The.  Time. 

I also have started to smile a whole bunch and giggle.  Mommy and Daddy do everything they can to keep me smiling and laughing.  I don't mind.

My cousin Isla came up to hang out with me.  On Wednesdays we wear pink.

I had to get shots at the doctor's office, but I was so brave.  Check out my big tummy in this picture!

Isla and her mommy, Aunt Kissy met Mommy, James, and I at the zoo.  Isla and I slept most of the time, but it was still super fun!

James is touching the monkey's nipples... not sure why.

Not sure why he is doing this either.

See, everyone wants to make me smile and giggle.  :)
 We also kept up with the fall tradition of pumpkin picking.  James stopped moving long enough for Mommy to take a picture to compare how tall he is now versus the last 2 years.  Mommy got a picture with me to do the same!  (I may or may not be asleep in the Bjorn!)

Not sure that James totally understands how these work...

He thought these gourds were ice cream cones...
Daddy went to college at Ohio Northern University and they had their annual homecoming.  So the family packed up and drove to Ada to stand in the pouring rain.

When we got home from a long, wet day, we all crashed on the floor.

Next up for our fall fun was a trip to the zoo.  Columbus Zoo celebrates with something called Boo at the Zoo.  All the kids were dressed up in costumes.  James and I were a tiger and a lion.  ROAR!

I got in on the Skeeter tradition!

I started sitting in my Bumbo chair.  It's so wonderful to be able to sit up and see the world!  Life is totally different from this perspective!  :)  As soon as I started to utilize this thing, someone else decided they wanted to sit in it as well.  He isn't having an easy time giving up his toys.

Here's the saddest thing that happened this month.  Mommy had to go back to work full time.  We were all incredibly sad about it.  Mommy and I enjoyed 3 days a week just the two of us.  Then Mondays and Fridays Mommy, James, and I got to play all day.  We have had so much fun, but it had to come to an end.  The exciting part is that now I go to the same school as James!  Mommy drops us off together and we get to hang out for a couple hours before James goes to his big boy classroom.  It makes being awake from Mommy okay.  Here are James and I on my first day!

Here I am at the end of the day.  I could NOT keep my eyes open!

Halloween was this month too.  Mommy, Daddy and James painted and carved pumpkins.  I slept through it all.  Like the whole thing.  I am telling you, day care makes me sleepy.

We also trick-or-treated.  Can you tell the theme of our family costume???  Lion, and Tiger, and Bear!  OH MY!  Yup, Mommy stole that one from Pinterest.  Mommy made her bear costume herself, isnt' it silly?!  James was not into the whole thing at first.  But after he saw the other kids all dressed up and realized that you got candy, he was all about it.  No one gave me candy.  They actually tried, but Mommy and Daddy stopped them from doing it.  James got lots and lots of candy though.  He organized it all the next day. 

I wore this little get-up to school on the actual day of Halloween.  This was an outfit that used to be James!  I think I look cuter... !

Whew!  What a fun month!  On the docket for next month, Thanksgiving and the Ohio State vs. Michigan game.  And, I assume lots of other crazy adventures! 

I love this kid... & I am pretty sure he loves me too!
