We went to the Huff's for Halloween dinner and Trick-or-Treating again this year. We had yummy pizza and Petite's Pastry donuts and cookies. Oh, and ice from sonic! (which is a highlight since it's pretty much all I eat....) It's great having VG to go and know that Tim will be safe! Brock and the rest of the dads were great this year and took the kids so the mommas could stay and pass out candy. Although I'm sad I didn't see Tim trick-or-treating at all, I just didn't think I could make the walk around VG with how uncomfortable this pregnancy has been! Sorry Tim - you're little brother is already stealing your thunder!
Tim dressed up as Mike the Knight. We bought the costume for him a few months ago as just a pretend play costume, and he was happy to wear it tonight! Makes my life easier. My mother definitely passed on the "whatever" attitude about Halloween to me, even though I swore I would always make a bigger deal of it for the kids. He's to young to remember...... Plus this is the only picture we have since Momma forgot the camera. The joys of being a photog momma. Camera=work so I really don't enjoy bringing it along!
Tim was VERY spoiled by both grandmas for Halloween, too. It was like we were our own shipping plant when I opened our front door to lots of packages today (some were from Amazon, too). He got lots of fun little toys and treats and a lego man from his Auntie Lilli and Auntie Alice. Grandma sent a Toy Story coloring book and some fun Halloween things, too! Grandma Melanie spoiled us with more candy and treats and a fun lego set for Tim. We had fun building playing with his new toys. It was so funny though because even though he got all these fun new things, he stopped playing with them after a bit and continued to play with a small popping pumpkin toy that Tanner had given him tonight. It's been his entertainment for hours. So funny!
I also had my 36 week checkup today. The doctor said nothing much was really going on - that I'm at a 1 and 50% effaced. Totally fine with me since the only "check" I had with Tim I was at a 0 and not effaced and had him 5 days later! Unfortunately, it's looking like Deacon is going to be bigger than Tim. I quite enjoyed my "Tiny Tim" and how little he has stayed, so it will be interesting to see if we have a baby with rolls this time! I still don't really buy into doctors being able to tell how big the baby is since I hear how off they are more than not. I'm definitely hoping that's the case since baby Deacon has LOTS of newborn clothes that I hope he can wear! Not to mention the 5 packs of newborn diapers.... Plus he NEVER kicks into my ribs, and Tim did all the time. So I'll be surprised if he's much taller than Tim was.
We tried to put up the Arm's Reach co-sleeper for Deacon today. Unfortunately we realized that we are missing one of the main parts, and it's probably back in Utah! I'm a little stressed now about where this baby is going to sleep, so hopefully Melanie finds the part although I'm not too optimistic. I don't remember seeing it when I went through all the baby stuff this summer, so we'll see! Just another item on the "to-do" list that seems to quickly be adding up instead of being shortened. Still can't wait to meet our boy, even if he doesn't have a bed!
