Pumpkin Patches & Wild Things

What a wonderful weekend we had!!!

This was our first weekend to have Ella at the new house when we weren't having to move! Woo hoo!!! Friday night, she wanted to eat Mexican, so we went out to eat and to get her a few new clothes from Target...our little long legged lady didn't have a single pair of pants that came past her ankles here!! Our big plan was to go see Where the Wild Things Are on Saturday. When she was with us regularly, we read that book just about every night...and she absolutely loves it. So last year when we found out that they were making a movie of it, we told her and the poor thing has been waiting for at least 7 months to finally see it!!

Saturday morning, we got up, got ready, and I was asking her what else she'd like to do with our Saturday. She first wanted to go to a museum, but I told her there really weren't any around here...and her next idea was finding a Pumpkin Patch, getting a pumpkin, and carving it! (She also wanted to make a "calabaza pie" which she informed me was "pumpkin pie" in Spanish, but it turns out neither of us or her Daddy like calabaza or pumpkin pie, so we skipped that part.) We'd never been before, so I got online and sure enough, one of the Methodist churches in Beaumont had one! So...that's what we did! First, saw our movie...
and then headed out to the Pumpkin Patch!

After that, we came back to the house to carve Mr. Huggy Face (guess who named him?)...

And had some homemade pizzas! It was such a perfect that we will definitely treasure!

It is so funny to see Kamden with Ella. He absolutely lights up when she's around...speaking of the little man, he's already got another tooth! Just a couple days after my last post I noticed his other front bottom tooth was poking through! He's also gotten really good at scooting anywhere he wants to go. I have a video that I hope to find time to upload overnight...he's started getting up on his feet and pushing a blanket around on the floor. He is just getting way too big too fast!

So that's what's going on these days with the Breaux Fam...what's going on with you?
(Ella took that pic of Kam...and I had to include this last one in all his Little-Man glory!)

Here's what's happened since I last posted: We did go to that wedding, and we did make the trip over to Dallas and back that weekend. It was a lot of fun!
I did end up taking Kam's 4 month pictures while he was still closer to the 4 month mark than the 5 month one=) Here's one of the few where his hands were out of his mouth:

At his 4 month appointment, he was 26 1/4 inches long and weighed 17 lb 15 oz. We mentioned to Dr. Wallace how he was noticing (and trying his darndest to grab) everything we ate, and he said it'd be okay to start some cereal. He wasn't so sure about it at first...

But then he loved it! We got a little crazy with it and gave him too much oatmeal at first, but now we've got it regulated to rice cereal at lunch time at his sitter's, sometimes with a fruit, mostly with my milk or distilled water, and sometimes with formula when I don't have enough pumped. The boy is an eater. Big surprise there!

On September 24, we closed on our house!

You might be wondering why I know the exact date...we had to write it on about 15,347 papers, so it's kinda etched in my brain. The following weekend we enlisted our family members and a few friends and completely filled up this truck:

along with a couple others. Who knew we could fit so much stuff in a little duplex with 1200 sq ft??

The kiddos were fantastic while we they are in our new house!

And here is a most flattering picture of us outside of the house. Yes, we put the sign back up for this picture. I believe this was Mrs. Nell's idea? It was a great one!!!

The following week was spent getting everything sort of in its right place...and the following weekend, October 4, Kam turned 5 months and was dedicated! Yes, we waited a long time...but as you might have been able to tell by my completely sporadic blogging, things have been more than a little hectic! Not a great pic, but at least it's some sort of proof!

Like I said, homeboy turned 5 months!

He is more fun than happy most of the time. He's trying so hard to crawl...he makes it up onto his hands and knees and rocks back and forth...and sometimes flips himself over...and sometimes scoots backward...and always is adorable.

He doesn't have any words down yet...he has gotten really good at bringing everything to his mouth.

He got to attend his first out-of-the-womb concert this weekend! (First in-the-womb show was NEW KIDS ON THE BLOCK woo woo!!) Shane and Shane played in Beaumont and they were so was truly a great worship experience.

And on Sunday he got to wear his first manly pink shirt=)
I think he's saying, "I dare you to attempt to make fun of me in this shirt! My mama will knock you out!" I hear that she will, too.

Tonight I was on my way home from school and the weekly grocery trip when my phone was my fab husband telling me that Kam has officially cut his first tooth! We can feel it and see it! It's really there!! I doubt I will be able to get a picture of it...he sure does like to keep that tongue on top of it...but it is there! Time surely does fly. I'll leave you with a little bit of proof of that...
