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
