Monthly Update

We had a very eventful month and it flew by!  Simon talks all the time and says really funny stuff.  It is so interesting as a parent when you hear your child say something in your voice.  He often says "This is crazy" or "What's happening?"  (I think those can be attributed to me).
He will also walk into a room and announce, "It's me, Simon".  The other day he told Russell he had a pineapple in his pants (twice).  He definitely understands when he is being funny and really hams it up.

Popo came to visit and brought Simon a fun farm set.  It was a big hit!
We got to celebrate cousin Will's 13th birthday.  I can't believe he is a teenager!  Time really does fly.
We went to Blake Morton's 3rd birthday party.  It was super hero themed and Simon was excited to have a reason to wear the cape Grandma Lin made for him
Super Simon in Action

Very excited about the Spiderman Cupcakes
We also went to visit our family in Colorado, but that will have to be a separate post because we took about a million pictures.

Halloween was so much fun this year.  We went to the Lincoln Square celebration with the Tyrell's.  These boys are just too cute together!
Simon the elephant and Conor the King penguin

 On Halloween, Simon decided to wear a Lion costume instead of the elephant.  Both were equally adorable!  He loved handing out candy to kids in the neighborhood.

Say Cheese!


  1. OMG - I love that he announces his presence when entering a room. Love it!

  2. It was so good to see you at Blake's party! I love how excited Simon was about the cake!! If only we could still get that excited about the little things as adults! Simon is so lucky that you record all these great memories on this blog! I was really good about documenting this stuff with Amber, not so good with Blake. Poor Lea--I've got some catching up to do!

  3. I didn't know he was a lion too! Soooo cute :)

  4. Trick or treat, he sure gave lots of treats away!!! Even to some passerby who did not want any but finally gave in!!!!!!
