Everything Embry: November 3

*I'm still going to do monthly posts and going to post her 13 month post this week! I just decided what I'm going to do for monthly photos....stay tuned!

Mimi, Ford, and Ruthie Visit 

Monday by noon my mom, sister and nephew arrived for a visit! With two babies, on different nap schedules, we did lots of hanging at the house playing.....which was absolutely PERFECT! Tuesday we had big plans of going to Tiny Tot Tuesday at the Arboretum (Ruthie hadn't ever been to Pumpkin Village). We made it to Pumpkin Village, but the weather was seriously so gross. It was mid 80's and had to be 500% humidity. After snapping some pictures in Pumpkin Village we were all drenched in sweat, so we didn't even mosey over to the other areas of the Arboretum. There was a photo worthy, cousin bath and later that evening Embry had us all cracking up. Ruthie gives Ford one bottle of pumped breast milk a day and he drank all but one ounce of it. We caught Embry CHUGGING the bottle and by the time we took it from her she had polished off a whole ounce. Ironic since she refused the bottle past 4 months old....hah. Wednesday we went to our usual Wednesday at the library down the street, but it was extra fun this week because everyone dressed in their costumes. So E wore her first costume....giraffe. Overall, such a fun visit! 

Let me help you with your sock, Fordy!

Ford trying on his Christmas hat we got him!

We tried on her Christmas dresses to see which one's will fit her...already plotting Christmas Card Pictures. 

Embry really loves her Mimi, and is not quite sure what to do when she holds Ford. She has Mimi carry her around quite a bit during their stay...hah!

Cousins =)

Collecting mulch...hah

Mimi and her grands!!!

So this is a pumpkin stem that fell off of a pumpkin at Pumpkin Village. It managed to come home with Embry in her purse....... and it's been her favorite toy all week. So yeah, a dry rotted pumpkin stem is her favorite thing right now.

Halloween this year we played a little dress up in the morning to get some pictures in my costume from 1987! Then we headed out on a few errands and it was such a warm day, and finally not miserably humid, that we played for awhile at a park. Sonic was offering 50 cent corndogs, so we swung by there for lunch and Embry loved it as much as I did! Who can blame her!?! That afternoon we got ready for our annual neighborhood party. Jacob came home early from work and got to go with us. There was lots of fun food, costume awards, games, etc. We then went "trick-or-treating" to two neighbors houses with Eliot and his parents. Really we stopped at two friends houses to show off the kids costumes. The kids were spoiled with toys picked out especially for them and the mommies and daddies got wine =) We definitely have a skewed view of trick-or-treating in our 'hood! Such great neighbors! E was in bed by 7:30ish as we've been preparing for the time change. Besides Halloween Jacob has worked late all week and so we've been pushing her bedtime to about 7:15-7:30p....and she's been up early... She's also been super congested all week, so hopefully this upcoming week she'll take the time change fine....

Friday she didn't take a morning nap and around 12:30 pm she kept sneaking off to her room, sucking on her pacifier from her crib and cuddling with her lovey. She's not asleep here, but close to it. Early nap for her! 

Such a good little Mommy!
