My mother gave him a few tries of oatmeal the other day and he got mad when she stopped lol He has also eaten fresh pear and he loved it. I think in a month we will definitely start trying more Smile

Either a stroller or the Ergo! It had been a little hot for the Ergo so we have just started using it in the past couple of weeks.

5. Do you celebrate Halloween? If so how? And what will you do for costumes this year?
Yes and Lucas is going to wear a vampire sleeper Smile Something super simple as Noah hated his first Halloween costume. Sometimes it's more aggravating for babies than anything.

6. What is the temperature outside right now where you are?
It is 73 right now, has been in the middle 70s or low 80s.

7. Your Favorite breakfast drink?
I usually only drink water but I do like OJ or coffee!

20-30 mins each way with dropping off Lucas and picking him up, unless I hang around at my moms when I pick Lucas up.

10. Does LO fall asleep in the car? How about while you are out about? Or do they have to be at home to relax?
Sometimes he does fall asleep if he's really tired.. otherwise, no. Usually in the mornings he's wide awake and talking up a storm!

1. LO's stats. Name, age, weight
Reid, 6.5 months - not sure how much he weighs (appt on the 14th) but the last time we weighed him (about a month ago or so) he weighed 17 lbs even. I'm guessing at least 18 lbs now.

2. LO's milestones
Can roll both ways and uses this as a means of transportation. Can sit unassisted for a minute. Can get up on all fours but seems to have no clue what to do once he's there. Babbles and clicks his tongue at us.

3. LO's favorite food if doing solids
Definitely sweet potatoes, but he likes pretty much anything but bananas.

4. How are you toting LO around? What kind of stroller or carrier?
I sometimes take him out in the jogging stroller, but not as much as I probably should. LOL Other than jogging, I just use my K'Tan all of the time. I will switch to his regular stroller once he gets too heavy to comfortably carry in the K'Tan. I seem to recall that I just wore T for about the first year, so it will probably be the same for R.

5. Do you celebrate Halloween? If so how? And what will you do for costumes this year?
Yes. DH will take T out trick or treating and I will stay home with Reid and hand out candy. T is going to be an army guy. My mom got him a super cool costume on sale for like 60% off months ago, so he is dying to wear it. I probably won't dress Reid up. I dressed T up as a chicken for his first Halloween and it was adorable but I agree with whoever said that it seems to aggravate them more than anything. Some friends just gave us a long sleeved onsie with a bat on it, so I'll probably put him in that.

6. What is the temperature outside right now where you are?
It's in the high sixties right now. I think it's supposed to get to the high seventies by late afternoon.

7. Your Favorite breakfast drink?
Iced coffee - decaf when I'm pregnant or nursing

8. Your Favorite fall dessert?
Pecan pie

9. How long is your commute if you work? How much do you drive During the week if you are a SAHM?
Oh man. Right now we are living with my ILs across town, so that adds to it, plus every morning I have to drop R off at daycare and take T to school, so we're currently looking at about an hour and fiften minutes to do everything and then get to work. *sigh* Once we move into our new house, it will probably go down to about 45 minutes, which is what it was before. Luckily my daycare lady's husband picks T up from school every day and I just pick them both up there, so at night my commute is shorter - about 50 minutes right now. Geez that is depressing to think about how much time I actually spend in the car each day. LOL

10. Does LO fall asleep in the car? How about while you are out about? Or do they have to be at home to relax?
No, like Emma, Reid is terrible in the car. The only time he falls asleep in the car is when I don't want him to (like we'll be home in 10 minutes and I want to put him down for a real nap.) The rest of the time he stays awake and gets progressively more agitated until he starts howling.

11. How old are you? How old is DH?
I'm 33 and DH is 32. I'm 6 months older, a fact he NEVER lets me forget. LOL

12. How long have you been married?
8 years

13. Are you a morning person or a night owl?
Neither? I love to sleep. Imagine my dismay at learning that both of my children are early risers...

14. Do you have pets? If so where do they sleep?
1 dog who sleeps on the bed right in between us most nights.

15. What plans do you have for this month?
We're FINALLY moving this weekend! :woohoo: Then we're getting an exchange student from Lebanon (long story.)

1. LO's stats. Name, age, weight - Julie, 6 months tomorrow, no idea but she's a chunker. She has an apt on the 15th, I'm guessing 19lbs.
2. LO's milestones - She holds her arms up to be picked up. She rocks back and forth on her knees. She rolls both ways. And her cutest thing, I think - when I sing to her, she gets this funny face and attempts to sing back.
3. LO's favorite food if doing solids- she likes sweet potatoes best I think. But she hasn't refused anything except chicken.
4. How are you toting LO around? What kind of stroller or carrier? I have a Graco stroller, one of those ones you can attach the car seat to, but we don't use the carseat in the stroller anymore. It really just irritates her because she wants to be sitting up all the time now, not laying back. I have a carrier and when DH is next door, I will carry her over there on my back because I can't "hold" her in the same place for more than a few minutes with my body being like.. NO. Haha.
5. Do you celebrate Halloween? If so how? And what will you do for costumes this year? I love Halloween, it's my favorite holiday. However, we probably won't do anything this year only because everything Halloween related is at night time and 1. the baby goes to sleep around 6 and 2. I go to bed around 8. I know, I am a such a party girl.
6. What is the temperature outside right now where you are? Cold. Mid 60's.
7. Your Favorite breakfast drink? Erm... Mountain Dew? LOL
8. Your Favorite fall dessert? Blueberry Pie. I know that's not really "fall" but I'm not a big pumpkin fan.
9. How long is your commute if you work? How much do you drive During the week if you are a SAHM? I have an 8 minute commute to work, which is fantastic. Hubby is an hour...ha!
10. Does LO fall asleep in the car? How about while you are out about? Or do they have to be at home to relax? Oh yeah, she loves to fall asleep in the car, although generally she doesn't get to sleep long because daycare and/or stores are only about 10 minutes away, so by the time she falls asleep, it's time to get up. I've been to my moms a few times and she's slept almost the entire 3 hour trip.
11. How old are you? How old is DH? DH and I are both 31
12. How long have you been married? 1 and 1/2 years
13. Are you a morning person or a night owl? Night owl, and it sucks because I have to get up at 330 in the morning for work and I'm SOOOOO not a morning person.
14. Do you have pets? If so where do they sleep? Yes, two miniature schnauzers. They sleep on a doggie pillow and/or comforter in the bedroom. Sometimes they sleep on the bed, but usually end up getting down because DH kicks 'em when he's asleep ...lol
15. What plans do you have for this month? I wanted to do Homearama, Busch Gardens, a huge Haunted thing in Virginia Beach and Peanut Fest (a small town festival we have every year, although they usually bring in a pretty well known country band). However, in true fashion, it's supposed to rain all weekend (which is Peanut Fest and it rains EVERY FRIGGIN YEAR on that weekend). And the haunted things are too late. I may still get to hit Homearama, but don't want to go by myself and my "babysitter" is the one I want to go with. So- probably nothing. Smile

3. LO's favorite food if doing solids He hasn't had a lot but he seems like chewing on broccoli, steak (lol w/ our Japanese last night), and toast

4. How are you toting LO around? What kind of stroller or carrier? Lately he does better in the Ergo than in the ring sling so I usually take that in stores. We use the stroller (w/ car seat insert) sometimes if we take walks around the neighborhood.

5. Do you celebrate Halloween? If so how? And what will you do for costumes this year? Micaiah wants to be either Tigger or a pumpkin, Noel wants to be Ariel, and I'll either dress Judah as Tigger or a pumpkin to match his brother. Not sure what exactly we'll be doing as we don't usually trick or treat. Maybe a neighborhood celebration or something.
