We went to my parents house for a little pre-Halloween pumpkin carving party. Kenna couldn't wait to carve her pumpkin, but when the time came, all she wanted to do was play with it's guts!

Hmmm... so that's what my dad would look like with hair!!

Zai didn't want to be left out of the fun, so he decided to try and look just as stylish as Pappa!

Here are the finished products of our fun. It's kinda hard to see, but you get the idea!

Here are Kenna and Zai's Halloween costumes. Kenna is obsessed with the Barbie's three musketeers movie, so she decided that is what she wanted to be. She is really into the sword fighting scenes and we have to act them out daily! It's quite funny how she mimics all their moves and words! Christopher's mom made the costume that Izaiah is wearing. He looks so cute in it, and how fitting, he definitely has the heart of a lion! She also made the sweater in the bottom picture. She is quite crafty!

sittin pretty

Zaiah FINALLY learned how to sit up by himself! We had been working on this for so long and he never got it, but one morning, it finally clicked! It just so happened that it clicked on the very morning that he had therapy. His therapists were so excited to see his new accomplishment! Before we know it he will be crawling! Even though I struggle with him daily and get frustrated more then I should, I am so amazed by him. I am just so proud of my son!

I know what you are thiking..... those were sooo entertaining!

Averie had her two week check up today. She now weighs 5 lbs 13 oz and is 19 in long. I can't believe time is going by so fast! It's kind of crazy, but it feels like she has always been a part of our family. After we had Izaiah and we made the decision that we wouldn't have any more kids, I felt strange and sad, but I knew I didn't want to put another child through what Zai went through, so I thought it was the right decision. I think I was so uneasy because deep down I always knew that our family wasn't complete. I knew Averie was waiting to come. I am so happy and so blessed that she is here and healthy. I love my family more then words can say. Now, I feel at ease.
