Atti"s 3rd Birthday Party

We ended up having his party at Peter Piper Pizzas.  I forgot that it gets dark early now that the time has changed.  I think it worked out better anyway.  The kids had a blast and I really didn't have to do anything other than make a cake.

I was actually quite proud of myself.  I usually don't make the birthday cakes but I got ambitious this time.  The birthday theme was monkeys so I attempted to make a monkey cake.  I think it actually turned out pretty good.  Don't think I'm that cool and clever.  I saw it online and I copied it, but I will take the credit for the banana cake.  I knew the monkey cake wouldn't feed 30 people so I had to think of something else so I came up with the bananas.

Spoiled much?  We didn't give him any of these toys.  Everyone must have known that Atticus loves Transformers.  He has been having fun playing with all his new toys.  Grandma Linda sent him some money and we bought him some cool Puma shoes and Grandma Phyllis and Big Papa Ron sent him an alphabet puzzle that he loves and Aunt Shanny sent a cute Sesame Street book that Emerson loves to read to him.  Thanks for all your kindness!

The rest of October

I love Halloween.  It's kick-off of the holiday season.  A reason to decorate!
I've got a rat infestation!

Uncle Matt and Aunt Brittany sent the kids a Halloween care package and this is what it was filled with.
An early Halloween treat!  The kids were very excited about this surprise package.
Thanks Matt and Brittany!

Emerson must have had a rough night of trick or treating because this is how I found her the morning after.  Oh, only Emerson!
I love this picture.  This is Laura and her boys dressed as the Beatles for Halloween.  How adorable is that!  Unfortunately, most people thought they were the Jonas Brothers.

How can this be? My baby is three!

Three years ago today at exactly 6:38 PM, Atticus was born.  Weighing 7 lbs. 11 oz. and 20 inches in length, this bundle of joy came into our lives.  I can't believe he's 3 years old, how fast the time has gone.  He keeps telling me he's not a baby and I keep telling him that he will always be my baby.
This is Atticus at 2 weeks old.  Look closely at the picture.  Do you see what he is telling me?
2 months old
3 months old
4 months old
1 year old
2 years old
3 years old.

I loooooove this kid!  He is the king of our house.  He is adored by all, especially Emerson and of coarse, the Stanton boys.  He is absolutely hilarious.  He's a joker, a lover, a snuggler, a teaser, a sports lover, a punk and a momma's boy.
