Halloween Part 2

A garden gnome in the pumpkin patch....well kinda.
Not too sure about this hat. 
Trick or treat! Wouldn't have hurt them to include bloomers with this costume.
Please give this kid some candy!
Hanging with the Grandparents.
Ready for more houses!

Emerson had a great time trick or treating. I didn't even intend to take her house to house but once she did one she wanted more! She was a big girl walking up and down the street. Next year I'm sure she will love it even more since she has discovered they sweetness of candy. I didn't let her eat any that night, and she didn't really even know what it was. I'm a mean mommy but I have a hard enough time getting her to eat, I didn't want to throw her off even more. But, after a couple days of watching Mom and Dad she ate through the wrapper of a kit-kat and was pretty excited about it. Just as I expected she has asked for candy every day since then. Of course she says please in her sweet voice!

Halloween Part 1

Emerson had several days of Halloween celebration. So this is part 1 of our fun. This year she was a Garden Gnome! (Not to be confused with an elf.) I loved, loved her costume. Couldn't have been better. She did get irritated when I put the dress on her. She found it restricted. But, surprisingly wore the hat. Which pretty much made the outfit.  On Friday we went to Mark's work to trick or treat there. Emerson was a little hesitant, wondering how everyone knew her name, and why are these people dressed all crazy. She quickly got into the swing of things. Digging into the candy!

 Although she didn't get the point that you take on and move on. She wanted to sort through it, play in it, and take about 10 pieces. Luckily she is cute!
 I don't think Emerson even knows what candy is but she had a fun time with the bright colored wrappers. Her favorite was red!

 Her costume was a big hit and she loved walking around with her pumpkin.
Last it was time to head downstairs for some ice cream. Note the cute gnome shoes! Not made for good traction though.  Emerson had pumpkin ice cream and loved it. She kept asking for more and more. I think she ate more than anyone. 

Yummy! This Halloween thing isn't too bad! Next up Halloween Day festivities. 

16 weeks

Here is my poor attempt at a 16 week belly picture. It's pretty tough to get a self portrait without a tripod, in poor lighting, and in a tight space. So this is as good as it gets. I've not been feeling too great this week with a few days straight of killer reflux, indigestion, and heartburn. But, knock on wood I've felt better the last couple of days so hopefully it will stick. I've been feeling the baby move a lot more this week. Little flutters here and there. The baby is about the size of an avocado and will double it's weight in the next few weeks. So I'll will probably have to get on buying some maternity pants. 

 For point of reference here is me at 16 weeks with Emerson.

 And one last picture.
