Well. The sickness was definitely a cold. You were miserable all week, but we're finally on the other side. We spent lots of time cuddling, running to the chiropractor, napping, rubbing Breathe essential oil onto the bottoms of your little feet, and fighting over the bulb syringe. You want to chew on it, I want to get the nasty junk out of your nose so you can breathe. But, when I try to do that, you s c r e a m bloody murder. I'm not kidding. You would think I was trying to kill you. Once I am actually able to fight you hard enough to get some of that snot clear, you are so relieved. But then you see me coming at you again with my bulb syringe and it's meltdown city.

This week, you're clapping and waving bye-bye.
We went to San Francisco for my work retreat, and you had so much fun -- you were a great traveller. More on your first plane ride and travel experience here.

Love your weekly photo this week! Uncle Andy got this for us at the pumpkin patch we went to... so much fun! You wore some festive Carharts, a puffy vest, boots, and a hunter's cap. Little farmer boy. ;)
You are such a good sport. Although it doesn't look like it, you loved the pumpkins, and exploring this farm with everyone. It was a gorgeous spot. Fox Hollow Farms in Issaquah. We'll be back for sure. Such a gorgeous drive!

You and those dang lights. You love them. I think for your birthday, I'm just going to string a zillion lights around the room -- or find special chewable lights for you to go to town on.
My new favorite picture of us! I love your Notorious BIG tee. You can thank you daddy for that one... his love of hip hop is being passed on to you.
This week, you learned how to give kisses! They're the cutest thing... open-mouthed, and you smile so big after! Like you're embarrassed, or so proud of yourself that you're able to communicate your affections.
You're walking several steps, and you're such a cheerful morning person. You are so excited when I come in to get you out of your crib!
Something funny you do: you crawl to the stereo on the TV and turn the volume all the way up. It always scares the heck out of you (and me) and I have to reprimand you each time, but you just think it's funny. I say no, and you laugh.
You woke up so early this morning, so I snuggled with you on the couch and let you eat apple straws and watch Henry Hugglemonster. I love your zoned-out face. The best thing in the whole world.
You slept in until 11:30 one day this week (!!?!?!), and your eyes are looking a little sleepy... I hope you're not fighting off a sick bug! Ugh.
On another note, Dad and I celebrated THREE YEARS of marriage this week! :) I love him so much. I hope that you never, ever doubt how much your dad and I adore each other. I'm his biggest fan, and he thinks I hung the moon. As much as we love you, we love being able to steal a few hours together, alone, too. (I know, ewwww...)

It's so hard to get a good picture of you lately. You're everywhere. Crawling, standing, perching yourself perilously on the edge of whatever else you can get on top of... holy heart attack. Oh, and you love the Christmas lights that we have strung (year 'round) around the TV. I have to vault across the living room to rip them from your little paws (and mouth) daily.
You're so fun ;)

I can't handle you. Look at that smile -- HAHA. It's probably my favorite thing you've started doing, I can't stop laughing. And you do it just like the pic shows -- you freeze, in that cheesy smile, and just let us laugh at you for a few moments. You are such a stinker -- you know you're cute.

I love this picture of you. You legitimately look like the real Gerber baby. Those big blue eyes, chubby cheeks, long lashes that I lust over, curly blonde hair... I'm not kidding, I'm convinced your the perfect child. A real life cherub.
