Happy Halloween!

Happy Halloween from our (not-so-happy) Tootsie Roll!

Don't worry, we removed the costume right after we got some pics! :)

It was an eventful week for Lea. Not only did she 'enjoy' her first Halloween and turn 6 weeks old on the same day, but we also introduced the bottle and pacifier. We have tried several different bottles, including Avent, Dr. Browns and Playtex Drop-Ins. Her favorite one, by far, though is the glass Born Free bottle (thanks, Melissa & Rob!!!). We also gave her a pacifier this past week. At first, she spit it out so fast is flew across the room! After a few more tries, she got the hang of it.

Lea is growing so fast (I can't say that enough!). She is super alert these days and smiles all the time. I haven't been able to get a good picture of her smile, though. Every time I get the camera out, her face turns into a blank stare. I'll get it on film one day! She loves her floor gym and we think she has actually started to try and reach for things. We got a little floor mirror for her and she loves to look at herself, too. It's so much fun to see what new things she learns every day!


  1. omg - that second picture cracks me up. You guys look so happy and then there is screaming Lea. Funny!

  2. I love that second photo, too! What a treasure. Great blog!

  3. I absolutely LOVE the tootsie roll costume and all of the animation that Lea added to it! So glad to hear that you guys are doing well...I am gonna head back that way soon and would LOVE to visit the Thomas clan!! : )
