Happy Halloween!

Simon has loved his first Halloween! Our neighborhood stores celebrated one day early so we went Trick or Treating today in Lincoln Square with two of his cousins. These pictures, cute as they are, don't even begin to capture the cuteness in these boys!!!!! Looks like I have finally been able to post a video (last two)! P.S. Simon is on the left and Jackson is on the right.

Chowing down

Last Wednesday the 13th, Simon started eating rice cereal and he is loving it.
The first few pictures are the very first bites he took. As you can see, he wasn't so sure about this stuff.


Getting better aleady


Now it is a few days later and you can see the difference.....he loves it!

But, sometimes he still just wants to eat his bib

Fall Fun!

A few weeks ago, we went to the pumpkin patch and apple picking with Nonna, Auntie Jennifer, Cousins Will and Stefan. It was a wonderful day. Simon can't wait to go next year when he is big enough to do more (especially riding the ponies and feeding the goats!)

Simon is 4 Months old!

Dear Simon,
This was such a fast month! Nonna was gone in Belgium for most of it and we missed her a lot. You were so happy to see her when she got back.
You have changed so much this month. It feels like the tiny baby days are gone. You love nothing more than to gaze at your hands and put them in your mouth. It makes the loudest sucking noise and it is very funny when you wake up and I hear only the sucking from the monitor.
This month you started noticing Zoe the cat as well. She seems to be more interested in you as well and I think you will love to play together in a few months.
You are quite a little "talker" and your daddy and I think you sometimes sound like Gizmo from the movie Gremlins. You will think it is a super old and lame movie, but it was very cool when we were kids.
You have started holding your toys this month which makes you so happy. I'll post some pictures of that soon. I'm so happy that you can do this because you are so smart that you were starting to get bored.
You have such an adorable little personality. We actually call you "The Professor". It started because your name sounds so grown up, but you've grown into the nickname as well. You are a very thoughtful and observant baby and it makes you look "Professorish" as we say.
You're changing so much now both physically and developmentally. Everyday when you wake up, I can't wait to see what you have in store for us.
I am finally posting your three month pictures here. They are too precious and you have already grown since these were taken. It is truly amazing to watch.
I love you with all of my heart and can't wait to see what this month has in store for us.
Love Always,
Mommy
