October is more than two-thirds over. How did that happen??? I remember being surprised it was already August. This year is going by very quickly to say the least.

We have had a busy and fun month! Well, mostly fun. Jamie did have a cold for a little over a week which was not so much fun. He threw a fit every time I had to wipe his nose so I tried to make the rest of the time more fun for him. We even made a fort.
He loved it, but it only lasted about 10 or 15 minutes before he pulled it down.

Thomas's parents visited us last weekend. We had so much fun while they were here, especially Jamie, who loves his grandmothers above everyone else, including Momma. I didn't get too many pictures while they were here. I guess we were just having such a good time I didn't think about pulling out the camera.
this is what Jamie does now if you ask him to smile

And a little about what Jamie's up to these days. He has started saying even more words, but he has such a limited number of sounds he can make that they all sound alike. Example: He can say "moon," "more," "Elmo," and "moo" but they all sound exactly the same and really not too different from "momma" and "meow." Context is very important.

He recently has started "singing" along with me to songs that have actions like The Itsy-Bitsy Spider and Five Little Monkeys. It is unbelievably cute.

He has really gotten into trying on shoes lately.
He has become completely obsessed with Elmo. We don't let him watch TV, so he hasn't even seen him on Sesame Street, but he got an Elmo toy for his birthday and fell in love. Now when we're out and about and he sees other kids with Elmo stuff (we've seen an Elmo backpack, an Elmo book, even Elmo shoes), he gets so excited. Sometimes he tries to steal their stuff.

He spent about 30 seconds in the dryer the other day and was utterly delighted.
Thomas is at a conference this weekend, and while he was packing, Jamie decided he wanted to go too. Tough luck, kid.
I have finished making Jamie's Halloween costume! He is going to be a Jedi. We're VERY excited for Halloween this year. Last year he was so small that we didn't really do anything. We put him in his costume for a couple hours and that was about it! I don't think we're actually going to take him trick-or-treating but we do have several other Halloween activities to take part in. Should be fun!

This is actually the longest I've ever been alone with Jamie, and it's been going okay. Other than the hour or two around dinnertime, it's not too different from normal. Thank goodness for naps and sleeping through the night so I do still get some time to myself. I'll be glad when Thomas is home.
