The past few months

It turns out, I haven't been the most efficient blogger lately and now I'm a rock in a hard place.  I have a BUNCH of really fun pictures that we just took over the holidays of all the fun stuff we did that I'm itching to post and share with everybody.

But there's a problem.

I still have a huge backlog of pictures that I haven't posted from the past few months, so I gotta compress em all into a few posts instead of dragging it out like I like to do.

So, here we go.

Elliot is sitting up crawling now, but we used that dang Bumbo just about every single day before he got so comfortable with his body.

For checking Facebook with Mommy.

For sharing a snack with the women in his life.

For keeping an eye on what's going on in general.

In the meanwhile, he also discovered his fists.

"I don't care what you say, I know they'll fit in here somehow!"

He's crawling now, but before he did that, he had to learn to roll.

While he was learning, he'd get his whole body turned over, but that Farnsworth head...

...just took some time to build up the strength the flip on over.

My neck is tired looking at that!

And he's just about to reach something that always been out of his grasp...

It might be time to put the swing away (Grant will be thrilled).

And, Halloween happened sometime in there...we only went to a couple friends' houses here in our apartment complex but we did have some costumes lying around.

For this evening's performance, "Toto" will be played by Sheep.

We kept the bassinet basket out for a good while for convenience.

And that was for Elliot's use...

...but good luck explaining that to someone else.

One day, Kendra marched into the living and did the following:

It's a monkey.  That she decided should wear her boots.  Like Dora the Explorer's friend, Boots the monkey.

Also, the cold weather has set in.  Kendra's pretty enthusiastic about always wearing her hat.

We also got her some giant blocks.

It's kinda fun watching her build towers taller than her.

A while back, we introduced her to Ramen Noodles.

Forks are for the weak.

Doesn't food just look more delicious when you see someone really enjoying it?

Maybe that's just me.

But anyway, that catches us up not all the way, but quite a bit.

Fun times all around.

What darling pictures! This was as good as a visit, almost. The kids have such darling personalities. I am so glad you take so many pictures. Thanks.
