Halloween and Getting Caught Up

Today has been one of those wonderful but rare days where I just get so much done! Chris's babysitter was here this morning, which gave me a few uninterrupted hours of worktime. And now he's napping, so I get even more. And it is much needed time, as I have really been falling behind on some basic "housekeeping" stuff!
So, in my effort to get caught up, I am going through some pictures that I have taken over the past month. Some of them are pretty cute, so I thought I'd share :)

I came in the room and caught Chris like this while he was watching one of his movies. So cute!
I took this picture for two reasons: 1. I just got Chris a bunch of new clothes, and I think he looks so grown up in them! He really isn't a baby any more! 2. Since we just got our house pressure-washed and painted, and because the weather has been cooler, I have been opening up the house and letting Chris go onto our back porch. He loves having an extra "room" to play in!

Sometimes if I try to steal a few minutes of worktime when Chris is around/awake, he'll come and stand at the gate that I keep at my office door until I come out and play with him. I can't resist him!

I have no idea why he is so serious here! But I still love the picture ;)

For Halloween I had bought Chris an adorable Tigger costume. I did this because Tigger seems to be one of his favorite characters - he can imitate his noise almost perfectly. However, he seemed a bit scared of the costume! Whenever I would get it out he would tell me "no, no, no" over and over again. I did manage to get him into it anyway, but he definitely wouldn't wear the hood! But that evening I put the costume on him and let him run around outside for a little bit. I don't think he is quite ready for trick-or-treating. But next year for sure!

In these first two pictures, the only way we could get him to smile and sort of look at the camera was to sing "If you're happy and you know it," which is one of his favorites. Otherwise he just ignores the camera completely :)

I thought the belly of the costume was hysterical.

And the tail was pretty cute, too!

Edit: I still cannot figure out why Blogger will no longer let me increase the size of the pictures. So for now, you'll have to click on them to view it larger.
