Kristen & I still try to watch movies on Sunday nights as were our tradition before little Jesse came into the picture.

Last night we watched the Disney animated movie "Up" and I absolutely LOVED it!

I love animated films and lately they've been okay but not great. This one I thoroughly enjoyed. I think because the soft side of me just LOVED the storyline. I would honestly say this movie could be more for adults than children.

Older children would definitely appreciate the story more so than toddlers I would think...but who am I to say for sure?!?!

Things are going well with Jesse, he's still on a rough routine which I'm liking since I like to be so organized all the time and Jesse not being on a schedule is quite an adjustment for me.
He's growing like crazy, had his first needles last week which went good.
And only a few more weeks and its Christmas!
I haven't had time to get any decorations out yet but hoping to start doing a little bit here and there this week to have everything completed by this weekend.
I've also been pumping since nursing only has really made me feel confined to home at times. And now with being the owner of a breast pump I'm actually going to attempt going to Kristen's Christmas party this Friday night for a few hours.
My Aunt is going to babysit Jesse, and I'm already nervous. I'm sure everything will be fine but it's nerve wracking for sure.
Well that's it for now....oh and to finish up a picture of our little man :)

Jesse's First Leaf's Game

Saturday night we attempted bringing Jesse to his first Toronto Maple Leafs hockey game.
He did awesome!
We missed the first period due to NO parking....ugh!
But he made it through the 2nd period and by the 3rd period he was asleep and we decided to take our time and start to head out to beat the traffic, etc.

Here's a few photos....ugh what's with bloggers new way of uploading these dang photos...grrrr
Here's Jesse at the game...yes we were WAAAYYY up in the stands

Mommy & Jesse

Go Leafs Go!!

After the game we tried to take a group photo. A nice couple with a 6 month old noticed us and offered to take the photo.
Sorry its blurred but at least we have one :) That red streak going up into the air behind us is the CN tower....I know you can't see it. But it's there!

And I would just like to say I REALLY miss blogging. But Jesse is doing better and starting to get on a "rough" schedule so hopefully I can start writing more.
I miss all of you :(

I said to a friend this weekend that I honestly feel like I missed fall.
I guess because I've been home so much that I didn't see the trees with their beautiful fall colours.
Now that I'm getting out more the leaves have already fallen to the ground and I missed it :(
However that being said, I can't wait for Christmas this year :)
I'm already in the mood to listen to Christmas music and decorate the tree.
But I'll refrain, I normally take all my decorations out around Dec 1st, this year I have a feeling it'll be closer to Nov 25th (1 month before Christmas)
I'm soooo excited.
Probably because its our first Christmas with Jesse.
I know he can't open presents or "really" understand what will be going on but it doesn't matter. It'll be our first Christmas with him and that's awesome.
----------- friend Myrna & her daughter Sarah came to visit on Saturday for a few hours.
It was great seeing them since they live so far away.
I have one photo to share.
When Sarah arrived she immediately wanted to hold Jesse.
So Mommy set her up on the couch to safely hold him.
While she looks down at him, this 2 & 1/2 year old little girl who I think is going on 16 looks at baby Jesse and says
"You're sooo cute!"
With the perfect tone of voice and expression, I totally cracked up laughing.

Sarah I think it's you that is "so cute!"

Halloween '09

A few pictures from Jesse's first Halloween.
Here he is next to his first Jack-o-lantern
I carved this pumpkin myself, and was sooooo disappointed that I missed the girls annual pumpkin carve. The first time since we started the tradition years ago :(
But its how things go once there's a little one to worry about.

Boone dressed up as a bumble bee....he, he

One of Jesse smiling at his Uncle Blaine.
Oh and thanks to Marianne & Sydney who gave Jesse the awesome skeleton shirt :)

And of course one of Jesse with Mommy.
I was going to dress up this year but couldn't find some of my stuff. So I just went with wearing black and pumpkin earrings instead.

We only had 13 kids...which still blows my mind when the next street over has around 90 kids.
Oh well that's why we give out "good" treats cause we don't have to buy as

How was your Halloween? Did you eat lots of candy?

Some of us just put on our raincoats and splash forward.
