I did realize however, I am pretty good at carving pumpkins! We never made it to the pumpkin patch due to bad fire weather, but found WalMart had a steal of a deal, $2.98 each! Check it out next year... I highly recommend it.

Secondly: Why am I not funny? Is it because I am a new mom and just want to post pictures of my kid? I read everyone else's blog and they tell funny stories or share interesting thoughts... where are my interesting thoughts?
Thirdly: Hey! There is my thought for the day. Is 'thirdly' a word?
My fourth point is: I have lost my ability to be creative! Maybe it was the epidural! That's it... the epidural affected my knees, my left shoulder blade and the creative side of my mind! That or else I am out of practice... or just not a blogger. I never thought of that. My mom has all of these talents, ie; sewing, cooking, guilt trips, crafting, etc... you know? And I have always said that each one of us girls have inherited a talent or two of hers (Andres says I perfected her guilt trips). Anyhow, Heidi can cook and craft, Mel can cook and sew, and I can... bake a mean cake? I like to scrapbook like them but have trouble getting started, Heidi once assigned me the green bean casserol at Thanksgiving because "it's hard to screw up 3 ingredients", and it took me almost one month and 3 trial runs to finish Connor's first Halloween costume... and the ears are still uneven! So maybe I just keep trying, right? Maybe these talents will improve with time and practice? Maybe I will not only become a great cook (Andres thinks I'm doing better... or I just improved the guilt trips and made him feel obligated to compliment) and a more precise sewer, but creative and funny! That's it, I'll practice on all of you... time will tell, right? Or maybe I'll just post another cute picture of Connor so I don't loose all 3 of my readers right away.
Saturday, Connor spent the evening with her Aunt Michelle and cousins Bradley and Daryn.
And here's a quick peak at our Sunday morning...
Oops, I got a little camera happy and missed my que.
Sunday evening was spent at the Hooties, where I finally finished her Halloween Costume while the family kept her busy!
(pictures of the costume will follow next week!)
(Connor watched Evan Almighty with Grandpa like this for almost an hour, and all we have to show is bald spots on Grandpa's legs from sudden urges she had to close her fist and jerk her arms!)
Connor had such an exciting and eventful week, she was sound asleep at a record time, 9:30!
Good job Connor, time to start a new week with a new bath.
(I couldn't resist the 'buns' shot!)

May look like a simple laundry room to you, but it is cleaner than when we moved in. He even moved both the washer and dryer and mopped the whole floor! Do you think I would be pushing it if I dreamed to wake up tomorrow and find another room looking similar?

Now that she is here, they seem to continue. Why did she move her head that way? Was that sneeze normal? Why did she spit up her lunch? Why on earth does she eat so much? Is this normal? Is she ok? What does it mean? Do we take her to the emergency room NOW?
Well, Andres decided it was time to take her in for a reason other than a well baby check up. She has been a bit congested and her breathing seemed off. So, 3 hours and 2 chest x-rays later, Dr Kwasman felt the need for a second opinion... A 2ND OPINION? Not what a new mom wants to hear! The radiologist took a look and gave his opinion, she's ok. However, the doctor agreed to refeer her to an ENT (ear, nose and throat) specialist. So we go on Monday and we'll be back with a full report.
Parenting, not a walk in the park... not this week at least!

This chair is cool! It plays music and lights up when Connor hits the keys ay her feet. It's not her favorite yet, but it has potential!

Grandpa Hootie bought Connor a new toy to get mommy to come back to work.
So far it has brought me back 2 to 3 days a week, slowly working up to more!
Last week Connor began carrying conversations... who knows what she is saying but it is pretty damn cute!!!
Here is a video of one of many conversations she has with the fish that hang from the top of her swing...I have NO idea if this will work or if you can hear it or see it, but it was cute enough to try and share with all of you!
