We have had a week full of fun preparing for Sophia's first Halloween! On Sunday we carved her Jack-O-Lantern.
She was more interested in trying to eat the newspaper than the actual pumpkin carving but what do you expect? She's only 6 months old!
On Wednesday she had her very first Halloween party with her buddies at daycare. They all looked so cute dressed up in their costumes.
Tomorrow we will hand out candy to the neighborhood kids. I'm sure we'll have more photos to post then.

We originally were not going to dress Sophie for Halloween because we will just be here at the house handing out candy and she won't remember her first Halloween. I didn't want to spend the $25 or so on a costume she really would only wear once. However, her Nana (Phillip's mom) found a costume at a local baby resale shop and couldn't resist. When it arrived I thought "there is no way this is going to fit." It looked huge! But it worked and wooooowww is she cute!

Sophia is 1/2 today or in more common terms, 6 months! She is 26.5 inches long and 15.1 lbs. Long and lean. Although she is becoming more curious about food and cups the doctor said he would really like us to continue with the breastfeeding and try to get as close to 1 year as possible before we introduce solids. So that's the course of action we're going to take.
She is cute as can be and developing more of a personality each day. She loves to be held and prefers us to hold her than set her down. Is very strong on her tummy, enjoys storytime and trying to eat books too. Anytime we have a drink in our hand she tries to grab at it. She can roll over, find her pacifier and put it back in her mouth, and hold her own bottle.
Here are a few pictures taken over the past few weeks.
Soft doggy, yucky doggy.
Phillip LOVES Sophie in footie pjs. These jammies were a gift and we hadn't had the opportunity to put Sophie in them because she was wearing onesies to bed up until about a week ago when the weather finally turned cool. I was afraid she would fit them at all but she does...just barely.
Last weekend we ventured out to "Cows-n-Corn"-a local farm that does a corn maze, hayride, has a small pumpkin patch, and of course farm animals! We enjoyed navigating the maze and Sophie liked seeing th cow and goats. She was too cute in her first pair of overalls.
