Ghosts & Pumpkins...I love fall

I always dread the coming of fall because I know what follows it...but then I'm reminded how beautiful the fall can be too! We've had great weather the last couple of days and the trees are gorgeous. I find myself taking the long way home from work just so I can look at all of the pretty trees.

I made Sophia's halloween costume and I think it turned out pretty good for my first try! She is going to be a little ghost :) It's hard to tell in these pictures but she has a ghost face on her shirt.

We also did some pumpkin carving the other day. I didn't take a picture of my pumpkin because I'm seriously's pretty pathetic looking! Jordan's turned out good though :)

I *think* Sophia is officially sleeping through the night

As I say this, I'm contemplating running all over the house and knocking on every piece of wood that I can find! We have started a new bed time routine with Sophia that is basically a bath at 9pm (she LOVES baths, especially having her hair washed), lotioned up, load up the Desitin, fresh diaper, jammies, put her in her SwaddleMe (these are seriously a life saver, worth every penny), bottle and if she isn't already asleep by the time she finishes her bottle then we rock for a few minutes and she is totally out. So far the last couple nights she has fallen asleep at about 9:30 and sleeps until 5 or 5:30 for a bottle but then goes right back down to sleep until about 7 or 8 - amazing!

I love Etsy...

I really do! I could seriously spend an entire day looking at all of the cool stuff on there. It's starting to get cold so I wanted to get Sophia a car seat cover to help keep the wind off of her. I couldn't find any that matched her car seat, so I took a look on Etsy and of course I found one to match! I just bought this car seat cover from Etsy seller "hblackberry". Another cool thing about it is that the flower is detachable and can be put on headbands, hats, etc. Love it!

Sophia showing off her Baby Legs & flower headband!

I could be in some trouble because I've developed a really bad obsession with Baby Legs and headbands! LOVE them! Here are a few pictures of miss Sophia while I was getting her dressed on Saturday:

A trip to the pumpkin patch

Sunday night we went with a couple of friends to a pumpkin patch and dressed Sophia up in her Pea in a Pod costume :) She slept through most of it but we got some pretty funny pictures! We also picked up 3 pumpkins to carve - one big one, one medium sized one and a little one for Sophia. I can't remember the last time I carved a pumpkin so this should be an interesting experience! Here are some pictures from our trip:

**Note: I didn't have time to resize the pictures so they are cut off but if you click on them you can see the full image!

This picture cracks me up, she looks like she's throwing up gang signs!


Pretty much over it at this point...

Our first family photo since the hospital, it's about time!

A few pictures!

Wearing her OSU outfit from Steve & Andrea

I love this little pink robe on her!

Jordan hanging out with Sophia at Kendra's wedding rehearsal

Sophia slept through the night!

...and I woke up in a panic because I thought she died or something! I immediately checked to make sure she was breathing and as soon as I saw her little tummy moving up and down I was relieved, then ecstatic! She has never even almost slept through the whole night before, so this was such a nice surprise! I don't have high expectations that she'll keep it up...but I'll take that free night of sleep any day!
