Halloween is 10 days away! I can't wait. I'm not sure if Mason will really get it yet. We might take him out trick-or-treating but we won't take any candy since he's not allowed to have any yet. We have to show him and Ryder off though.

Last year Mason was a monkey and the costume was a little big. Luckily it still fits this year (although a little short) so I of course had to find Ryder a banana costume.

Let the cuteness begin...

Ryder 1 month

Yesterday we had Ryder's 1 month appointment. The nurse commented how he filled out and then when she looked in the chart and saw we were here for his 1 month appointment she said, "are you sure you're not here for his 2 month appointment?" My (not so) little guy is growing like crazy.

weight: 11 lbs 7 oz - 90th percentile!
height: 23.25 inches

He is now in size 6 month clothes! I can't believe I already have to pack up 3 months and only used newborn outfits for a couple days. I'm not used to having such a big baby!

Newborn comparison

Here are both my boys when they were newborns

fall photos

It's hard work chasing a toddler around the yard to get photos!

Mason painted his pumpkin with his friends at the park

Newborn photos

I attempted to do my own newborn photos of little Ryder. For my first attempt I don't think I did too shabby :)
