Lions and Tigers and...Frogs???

Each year the Nashville Zoo hosts the Ghouls at Grassmere event which provides a safe and kid friendly environment for families to go to trick or treating. They have hay rides, games, arts and crafts and even educational sessions about their animals. Oh..and lots (and lots) of candy.

Caleb and I have been volunteering at this even for the past couple of years.

2011 - Caleb and Me
We decided to take Remy with us this year, you know, to score some extra candy.

Remy did an excellent job staying in character and even managed a few Ribbits. (Ok, so maybe he just had the hiccups.)

Hope your Halloween is hoppin'!

4 (ish) Months

I had every intention of posting Remy's 4 months pictures on (ok..more like around) Remy's 4 month birthday, but we've been a little busy...

...doing this...

...and this...

We've been running around pulling socks off (so he can find his toes) and putting them back on (because we wouldn't want his cute little toe piggies getting cold). We also spent the first few days flipping Remy back over since he wasn't always amused with laying on his tummy.

But we survived!

And although Remy is still perfecting his sock removal technique, he has mastered the roll over.

He has even been sleeping on his tummy at night, with the approval of our pediatrician of course.

All this time I've been debating if I should wait to post the 4 month pictures with the 5 months pictures because, let's face it, it's almost time for those. #wheredoesthetimego

But I know you've been on pins and needles waiting for this. (You have..right?) So without further ado....

(drumroll please...)

And now for the comparison.....


Unlike last time, you can definitely tell that he's grown. He's a whopping 14 lbs 7.5 oz and 25.5" long. In addition to grabbing at his feet, rolling over and sleeping on his tummy, he's smiling all of the time and just starting to giggle. Such a happy baby!

Remy has not come across anything he doesn't want to put in his mouth. His biggest thrill was the paper at the pediatrician's office.

Where's Remy?
He's even been practicing his riding skills...

Giddyup little doggie.

Since Remy's arrival, I have learned to love a good nap.

Not for me, of course. I don't have that kind of time. 

But a good Remy nap was all I needed to tackle my (growing) list of home improvements.

Like rearranging the living room..

Bella has embraced the idea of napping when the baby naps.  I just couldn't get into it.

..adding floating shelves to the guest bathroom..

..painting the baseboards in the kitchen..

..finding a home for some of my favorite pictures..

..and organizing the office.

It's amazing what you can accomplish in 40 (and sometimes 90) minutes!

And because I'm pretty sure you don't come here to see pictures of my house...

Looks like it's time for another nap...
