Streaker yes?

So... yesterday morning, Kellen woke up just talking away as usual. He had been up once during the night and Kyle had changed and fed him. I go in there to get the little bugger and found him standing there with one arm out of his shirt...! So he had half of his shirt off!! So I show Kyle and I ask him if maybe he had gotten frustrated getting Kellen dressed and just put him in the crib like that and he laughed like, what? Why would I take his shirt off to change his diaper? So... Somehow during the night Kellen half undressed himself... This probably means that in the future we are going to have a little streaker on our hands, running around the house naked trying to not let us catch him... Oh boy!! Ha...

Halloween!! (a little late)

Apologies for the delay for our cute Halloween monkey! This year for Halloween Kyle and I were lame and didn't do much or dress up, BUT we definitely got Kellen all dressed up. We borrowed this costume from our friend Josh, and Kellen loved it!! The first time we tried it on he got a huge grin and couldn't stop smiling!! Traxton was pretty confused about Kellen wearing his costume. He couldn't stop sniffing him, trying to see what was going on. It was adorable, but since Kellen adores Traxton he thought it was hilarious that Traxton wouldn't leave him alone!!

We had my cousin Brandi and her husband Devyn over for Halloween from Idaho, so Kyle worked in the morning and Brandi, Devyn, Kellen, and I went out to the mall because they had some shopping they wanted to get done. Once Kyle got off we all went to the new In-N-Out burger in Centerville. Kellen was all dressed up cute as a monkey!! When we got home we had our friends Nick and his girlfriend Jessica come over and we carved pumpkins! Kellen loved playing in the guts, but couldn't for too long because he kept trying to eat it... gross! Here are our amazing pumpkins!! Kyle's is the first, then Jessica, then Nick, then Brandi and Devyn's, and the last is mine. It was really fun having people over because otherwise we would have been so bored because we only got two trick or treaters for the whole night!!

7 Months!

It's that time again to give our amazing updates on the beautiful baby boy called Kellen. Now being 7 months, he has realized that he can do many more things and he definitely likes to show off :) On October 23, he started crawling, crawling, and more crawling... anywhere and everywhere he's not supposed to be! He thinks that cords are much more fun to play with than his toys that are right in front of him... Once he realized he could crawl he decided it was a good idea to crawl up on things (such as the computer...) up onto his knees like so...
Yesteray, on his seven month birthday, he decided that he could go a little further, and now he gets up to a standing position!! Oh boy, walking is only so far away now! He has now discovered his lungs as well... He talks in a little, or not so little, scream. It's adorable, don't get me wrong, until he decides that he is upset.... Then his cute talking scream turns into a full fledged scream at the top of his lungs kind of scream. The kind that hurts your ears if your in the same room or even on the same floor! I do love that he talks all the time now (babbles), but I have now realized that temper tantrums are soon to come. Kellen now sleeps through the night again!! Yay!! Usually sleeps from about 9:00 pm to about 8 or 9 am!! It's so nice!! It gives Kyle and I a few hours together at night to relax but also lets us sleep in so we aren't so grouchy in the mornings!! Mornings with Kellen are my favorite time, he wakes up not crying but babbling away. He doesn't need attention right away so it lets kyle and I lie in bed listening on the monitors to our adorable son and his cute babbles. Then after a few minutes we decide that we should go say hi. As soon as he sees one of us his face just lights up and he crawls as fast as he can to the end of the crib where we are and gets all sorts of excited!! He is breathing heavy of excitement and crawls up the side of the crib for us to pick him up. He is such a happy morning person and such a good sleeper!!!
