Happy Halloween from a Ferocious Blue Monster

That's right - ferocious. Or maybe just adorable. Either way, Emmett's costume is awesome. Too bad he's a little young for trick-or-treating and we have no place to show it off. I'm actually thinking of taking him to the supermarket today for some grocery shopping, because at least some people will be able to see him costumed in person. That is, if he can tolerate being in it for more than 5 minutes (the current record).

For mischeif night last night, I carved a pumpkin, toasted the seeds (which are DELICIOUS) and James built our first fire in the apartment's fireplace. Needless to say it was a nice little fall evening. I'm also pretty darn proud of how well my jackolantern came out. It's an owl!

In past news, Emmett had his 9-month checkup the other week. He was a super champ through the bloodwork. He didn't even make a peep - it was incredible - though he wailed when they gave him his shots. He's now a whopping 20 lbs. 4 oz. (46th percentile) and 30.5 inches "tall" (97th percentile). Again, one of the tallest kids in his class!

We had a couple of fun visits this past week. My best friend Niki stayed with us last weekend, and we had a visit from my good friend, Lauren, from high school last Wednesday. More aunts for Emmett!

I'm also convinced that Emmett is extremely close to saying "mamma." In fact, it sounds like he's already saying it (although he might not exactly know what he's saying)! Check out this video for evidence. What do you think?
