Jamie had his first dentist appointment last week, and I am happy to report that he did PERFECTLY. We practiced a lot beforehand, taking turns being each other's dentist, so he knew exactly what to expect and opened his mouth up without even being asked. I was so proud of him! And the dentist gave his teeth a good report, so it was all around a pretty great experience!

A couple weeks ago we spent a fun afternoon at Oakes Farm, a local farm with a corn maze and lots of other fun activities. We had meant to go earlier in the season but didn't make it until their last day. I'm glad we managed to squeeze it in because Jamie had so much fun!

Here's my 20 week belly picture. We're halfway there...unless baby brother decides to pull a Jamie, in which case next week we'll be halfway there :)
Just for fun, here I am at 20 weeks with Jamie. Definitely a little bigger this time around, but the difference isn't quite as drastic as it was a couple months ago.

Halloween is Jamie's favorite holiday. He had very seriously been waiting for it for an entire year. After last Halloween, he never stopped wanting to get Halloween books from the library or talking about ghosts, vampires, and witches, so he was one happy boy when the season finally came around again. We had a ton of fun celebrating this year!
We decorated the house (a little bit, kind of)...
|some monster decorations we made together|
|This spider web was short lived but pretty hilarious while it lasted. Jamie really wanted to scare Daddy with it but it fell down before he got home.|
|my little dragon!|
|bean bag toss|
|feeling "body parts"|
|Jamie wanted his face upside down because he thought it was scarier that way. And mine originally didn't have the eyebrows, but Jamie insisted it wasn't scary enough so I had to add them.|
|decorating a robot mask|
|bobbing for apples - he totally cheated so his turn lasted all of 3 seconds|
|playing "Ghost, Ghost, Witch"|
|We took cups of dirt pudding. Jamie was SO excited about it and put all the worms in. I didn't get any pictures of them but happily we had some left over at home for later!|
|I couldn't get a very good picture of it, but Jamie loved playing with the vampire teeth he got in his goody bag. It was SO funny.|
|That was one happy boy...|
tutorials for Jamie's dragon costume -- for the hoodie (I added wings because without them he was indistinguishable from a dinosaur) and for the tail (I used felt for the spikes just because that's what I had used for the hoodie)
|Jamie's first time writing his name. The "s" didn't work out so well but the rest was pretty great! Also- if he is going to spell or write his name, he will only use James.|
|Jamie was randomly cutting shapes off a piece of paper. When this was all that was left, he said to me, "This looks kind of like Missouri!" And he was totally right!!|
|We spent a hilarious afternoon mummifying each other...and Jamie's stuffed tiger.|
|Another morning, I came out to the kitchen and discovered this! I'm so glad he was only trying to get a banana. When did he get big enough to do this?? (Also, gotta love that hair.)|
