Firsts

ET is officially a big kid. With real live school pictures and everything. How handsome is this boy of mine?!! He is so grown up. He knew how to sound out words before he started school, but being in school has given him more confidence in sounding them out. At least once a day, I will hear him sounding a word out right, but saying it wrong. So, the phrase, "That's just how they decided to spell it," is a very common one in our house.
He is so excited about Halloween this year. I am so glad that we already bought his costume, and bought it big. The pj pants I made him at the beginning of the summer are almost too short. We got all the kids halloween shirts at the store today. That with all the great Halloween stuff from Grandma and we are all set for Halloween. (Thanks for the decorations, too Rhonda. I just don't have the energy to deal with finding our and putting them up. They are super cute!)
I even bought a huge bag of hard candy that is really helping to settle my stomach but will most certainly rot my teeth! Thank you for all the nice thoughts and comments (and for dinner Marenda--it was fantastic!) I really don't hate my baby. I just hate being sick all the time! But the mother of a kid in ET's class has offered to take him to school and pick him up three days a week, so that will really help out! Thank you!

Looks like he got the family tooth gap. Teach him to shoot water out of it and he will be the coolest kid in school!

They sure do grow up fast.

What a great looking kid you have there! Watch out, girls are so aggressive these days. They'll start calling him insessantly around 4th grade!
