Trick or Treat!
Time to go home
I should have taken pictures of our decked out Halloween decorations in our house! I am obsessed with decorating for the holidays....poor Skyler.....I tell him to keep working hard to fund my insanity! We had cobwebs outside our house, lots of lights, pumpkins, spiders, etc etc. I can't wait until my fund for holiday decorations increases!! Thanks Sky for working so hard! :-)

I've been meaning to capture Ethan and his "sounds" for a while now...he is just so cute! Do you think I'm preparing Ethan well for the life of a football player?! For some reason, I have this picture in my head of this video being played on a Jumbotron in some stadium for Ethan's first football game of his professional career! :-) Wishful thinking??
Ethan being silly with his Elmo Halloween bucket (thanks Grandma Savage!)
Last week was so wonderful because Skyler took an entire week off of work to stay home and be lazy with me and Ethan. Except-we weren't so lazy (at least Sky wasn't)....we were hard at work getting the baby's room put together, and Ethan's room got some new furniture as well--so Sky was busy putting together the crib and dressers. We also painted the baby's room. It was so refreshing to spend a full week with my wonderful husband!
How lucky am I?!
Here are a few pictures for the grandparents to see how big Ethan is getting!
We are so blessed to have a healthy, beautiful son!

Anyway, with that in mind--let me share a little story of what Ethan did last week. Sometimes, when I get ready in the morning, Ethan likes to get in the shower and shower like a big boy. He washes his hair and body and stomps around the shower while I put my makeup on. He also likes to open and close the lid to the body wash (making it a bit runnier when we go to use it the next day), take the lid of my shaving cream and spray it on the walls, and once he even completely dumped out a bottle of my brand new, somewhat expensive, shampoo! That, however, pales in comparison to what he got himself into this time.
When I was ready to pull him out of the shower, I could see through the glass door that the shower was filling up with water!! I quickly opened the door (if I had been even two minutes later, the water would have flooded up over the lip of the shower) and Ethan was sitting in the water saying, "It's ok, it's ok, it's ok." He says that every time he does something wrong. Anyway, I noticed that Ethan had pulled up the drain cover so I knew that he must have put something down there to block the water. I went to get Skyler and when we got back to the shower the water was slowly, S-L-O-W-L-Y draining itself around whatever Ethan had managed to shove down there. I looked around and thought that I had accounted for every bottle of shampoo and conditioner, body wash, and shaving cream and couldn't for the life of me think what Ethan could have possibly shoved down the drain. Then I realized that a new bottle of hair glaze was missing......yes, a bottle that was so perfectly shaped for a little boy to drop down deep into the drain. Skyler and I had no idea how we were going to get it out. We thought about waiting for the water to completely drain then blow drying the bottle and threading a roll of tape down to the lid to hoist it out--but that just seemed like so much work. We thought there had to be an easier way. Well, Sky finally decided to take a screw driver down the drain and screw into the bottle's lid and was able to pull it up that way. Anyway, it was quite the ordeal--and I am glad that we were able to laugh about it....but that will probably be one of the many memories I will keep of raising my sweet little Ethan.
Sky and I just think though, "What's it going to be like with TWO little boys?!" What will Ethan be capable of with a little accomplice?? I guess we will know soon enough--I can't believe how close we are to the end of the pregnancy! This one has just flown by. And we may be welcoming this new little bundle sooner rather than later because I have already started to experience some pretty crazy strong contractions! Ethan can't wait to meet his little brother!
