Fall Fun at the Pumkin Festival

Got the boys dressed up in their Halloween best for a little pumpkin festival down in Half Moon Bay.

From Zacks perspective, as he said, "Dad, I had a really nice weekend"...well of course he did....lets see, he climbed a rock wall, jumped in 2 bouncy houses, went down a big slide, met some firemen and got to check out the drivers seat of a "really big fire truck", rode a pony and a train, and even got to eat a big chocolate covered doughnut.

From our perspective...$8 on parking, $5 on the rock wall, $5 on the jumpy houses, $1 on the slide, $6 for the pony, $5 for the train and $1 for the doughnut. Oh wait, forgot to mention, $20 on mimosas to make it all bearable. $51...not too bad for a sunday. HAHAHA!

Really, we went with very dear friends of ours and laughed alot...We had a wonderful time watching Zack enjoy himself and taking lots of pictures.

First bath together.
Sweet Big Brother Zack insists on helping "wash Baby Brody".
He even wanted to share "Tommy Turtle" with Brody (this is a big deal!)

Clean Boys!

Brody and Mommy watching football together. Brody was mad the Jets lost because Daddy has their defense on his fantasy team.
Big Boy Outfit. Big outing today-Target and Costco! Hehehe!

Do you like my police car Brody?

Zack is so nicely sharing all of his cars and trucks with Brody...and usually we get no reaction from the little guy, but yesterday we got a sweet!

Not the best photo of Zack but look at little Brody in this one!
And then Zack had a little chat with him...

loving all of the precious family moments!

Brody-4 weeks old

So what have we been up to?
Well, this was our first week of "tummy time".
Brody is NOT a fan. In fact, he has already taught himself to roll over just so that he doesn't have to be on his tummy, as you can see below.

We start like this....

and we end up like this!
What else? B went to his first Giants game last night. Always tough to get a good family photo these days, but here's one where Jeff and I are both smiling and have our eyes open....but Z isnt looking....oh well!

I took Brody to get weighed yesterday and was able to confirm that he is indeed a good eater. He weighed in at 9 lbs 13 oz! (At 2 weeks he was only 8 lbs) Woo hoo! Good job Brody (and Mommy too)! I am a firm believer that big well fed babies are happy babies, and tend to sleep better. In fact, last night, Brody slept from 930 to 230--a solid 5 hours! I went to bed at 10 so I was thrilled when I woke up "well rested" after 4.5 hours!

Everyone has been asking what do I do all day, and I think this is a great question. The reality is, I have no idea! Brody wakes up to eat around 530. We go back to sleep around 630, when Daddy is getting up and ready for work. Zack wakes up around 730 and comes in to "snuggle". We watch an episode of Diego (or Zack does and I continue to sleep) and then Zack and I get up to get dressed and have breakfast and let Brody sleep. Brody wakes up btwn 830 and 9 and I feed him while Zack watches another tv show, this morning it was Nihao Kilan. We leave for school some time around 930 or 10. Then B and I usually run 1 errand (yesterday doctor, today pharmacy, some days a quick walk in the park). We are home for Brody to eat again by noon. After this it it all a blur until 5 when we leave to go get Zack!

I am so excited for my 2 very good friends to have their babies this week so that in a month or so Brody and I will be able to schedule some "play dates" or walking/work out dates for Mommy. Kelly and Casey are going in on Thursday for a c section and Elaine and Dale are going in Thursday to be induced. So 2 new friends for Brody are coming very very soon! Yippee!
