Now that the laundry is somewhat caught up, the dishes are done and the dog has been walked, I finally have time to post pics of our little Yoda...
As you can see, he was terribly excited about his costume. We had several trick or treaters, which is always fun, and Yoda enjoyed answering the door with Mama. If I'd had time, I would have found a gold bikini and dressed up like Princess Leah...now THAT would have been scary. Oh well.
In other news, I attended my second La Leche League meeting last night and it was lots of fun! I enjoyed the conversation topic (Nighttime Parenting) and the Q & A that followed. And it was just really cool to chill with some other bf'ing mommas. Maternity leave can be a little isolating at times and it was fun to get out and hang with some LWB's (Ladies with Babies). In conversation, it was discovered that at least 2 new mom's live within walking distance of our house so there may be some walking/tea/playdates to be had in the coming months. Yay for new friendsies!
Otto (or Autobahn, as we have been calling him..heh) is doing great. A little fussier but also more alert and awake during the day. And I'm pretty sure I've caught a couple of social smiles here and there...they are very fleeting but I have a hunch that they will become more frequent in the next few weeks. He's sleeping great at night (knock on wood). We go to bed around 11, he's up at 4:30 to eat and then back down until around 8:30 or so. This is a vast improvement from the every 2 hour thing we were doing in the beginning.
And now, suddenly its November...the holidays are fast approaching...I guess I should start thinking about gifts. I usually try to do something homemade or semi-homemade but I don't foresee having much time to knit/sew/make soap or candles in the near future. I'll have to do some creative Google-ing to see if I can come up with a cool project that won't turn my hair grey.
