So much...

So I've definitely been putting off doing a post because I've gotten so behind! I've had things to update it with pretty much every day it seems like, so I got a little overwhelmed. So this is gonna be a long one... Prepare yourselves.

Last Wednesday was TJ's night off, so we decided we needed to do something festive! So, we got together with our friends Katie and Mckay and carved pumpkins. It was so fun! I honestly don't remember the last time I did that, if I even ever did!
Saturday was football, of course, and Steven and TJ spent some time bonding...
TJ went to work that night where they were having a costume contest. He dressed up as a Mexican Banana. Don't ask...
I went with Steven over to Lyndsay's for dinner and to hang out while the kids went trick-or-treating. I didn't get dressed up, but I had to dress Steven up, even though he didn't go out with them. It's the principle of the thing! I also couldn't let this amazing cape go to waste! (thanks Katy!)
I just thought this video was super cute. He's making some crazy faces! I think he might have been trying real hard to fly away...

He also had fun while we were there playing with Andrew. I'm not sure how much Andrew actually liked it, though...

Oh, also, as I was going through his clothes on saturday night, I realized he had another halloween costume. Since sunday was technically halloween, TJ decided he had to wear it. He was so cute...
Sunday night we went to see our friends Kami and Ty and have dinner with them. They love baby Steve and are so cute with him!! Oh, and with all the pictures we were taking of him on sunday, I forgot to take an actual "7 Month" one. I can't decide if I should still take a late one...
Yesterday, I had to go to Deseret book, and while I was there, I saw this adorable Book of Mormon ABCs book. It might be a little advanced for Steven still, but there's no harm in getting them started young! And he really seems to like it!

SO, to wrap up this ridiculously long post, most importantly of all... STEVEN IS CRAWLING! We actually used the book as bait to get him to crawl to us and it worked great! We are so excited, even though I actually have to baby-proof our apartment now.

We tried it again, later, using food, and that seemed to be a pretty strong incentive too :) He's obviously not great at it yet, but he seriously is improving every time he does it. I just can't believe it!!

Hopefully everyone's still awake after reading this post, and I promise I'll do a better job of keeping up!

Finally! And I actually thought it could have been a *longer* post!

1) Loved TJ's pumpkin! So cute! :}

2) LOVED the football pic.

3) Um, I found the banana costume.....disturbing. =]

4) Hard as I tried, I couldn't figure out the first "cape" picture of BS. It looks like his head is on backwards - haha!

5) Loved, loved, loved the kiss he gave Andrew!! I also got a huge kick out of the sideways glance Andrew gives him at the end of the video. :]

6) Yay for crawling!

I just noticed David's bunny on the "kissing" video. Seriously, GROSS! Looks like it has leprosy -- or something!...........

your pumpkins were great. and i actually could tell which one was tj's before you even told us. i was very proud :)
stevens hallween costume was adorable! i love that you used the cape katy made and then created a costume off of it.
tj's costume.. not sure what story could be behind that. or where he found it...

it was fun to see the little baby cousins "playing" together. how sweet that he gave andrew a kiss :) maybe he has some saved for kate!
good luck with the crawling!!! ;)

Okay, great post. Loved all the videos. He definitely had some crazy faces, but I loved your comment about trying really hard to fly. Very funny!

The pumpkins were great. I loved all of them!

I loved that he gave Andrew a kiss. Somehow I missed that that night.

Did TJ win any money with his costume?

How exciting that he is crawling and that I got to see it in person yesterday!! Go Baby Steve. Good luck with the baby proofing!

Oh, and I was going to mention, and forgot, that you should definitely still take a 7 month picture. I've done pretty good with my last two kids about taking their picture right on their month day, but with Madison I was NOT good. Sometimes I would take her picture a week or two later. I would just always forget. But now I'm so happy that I at least have the picture, even if it's not on the right day. It is still the right month. :)
