Sofia's First Bath

We were finally able to give Sofia her first full bath when she was about 2 weeks, 3 days old when her umbilical cord came off. She was not too happy about it at first but as we poured the warm water on her, she started to come around. Since then she has started to enjoy them more. I had a great helper too, Ethan loved helping give his sissy a bath!

And if there was any question that Ethan and Sofia were siblings, here's some photo evidence.

Halloween Gingerbread House

Last year at Christmastime we made a gingerbread house with Ethan and he loved it; so when I saw a Halloween house at Michael's a few weeks ago, I knew I had to pick it up. This weekend we finally got some time to get it out and put it together. While Ethan was napping, I constructed the house so it was set and ready to go when he woke up.

Michael would put the icing on and then Ethan would place the candies. He had a lot of fun decorating it!

Pumpkin Picking 2014

Last Friday we made our annual trip to our favorite pumpkin patch, Goebbert's. It's always one of my favorite family outings that I look forward to. It was a beautiful day and we had so much fun. Ethan had a ball. Sofia slept through it, but next year she'll probably be walking through the pumpkins with her brother!

On our way out the door, he was so excited for pumpkins!

We checked out all of the animals first. 

One of Ethan's favorite things last year was this corn box. He loved it again this year and had so much fun with Dado!

We took pictures on trucks, trains and tractors!

Then we had to take some pictures of the cutest pumpkins in the patch!

Me and my little pumpkins

Finally it was pumpkin picking time, Ethan picked his and Sofia's!
