Mike's Farm

Hubs took the older two to Mike's Farm yesterday for his work event. We were all supposed to go but Eleanor was still sick and exhausted from her first trip to the ER. I'm glad Dean still insisted on taking Nathaniel and Amelia because they had a great time. They couldn't wait to tell me all about their farm adventure with Daddy!

Mike's Farm has their spooky Halloween decorations up in preparation for the haunted hay ride. This apparently scared Amelia because she just cannot stop talking about it! Thankfully, Kuya Nathaniel was there to rescue and protect her because he covered her eyes :)

I love that Amelia picked a not-so-perfect pumpkin to take home. I am so used to Nathaniel picking the "best" pumpkin that I was taken aback when I saw Amelia's. She said the blemishes are polka dots. Give it to my two year old to teach me about finding beauty in everything.

I should also note that Hubs took my big girl camera with him and took these! (Edited by me). He said, "I figured it's better to have some crappy photos than none at all." And he is absolutely right. These are memories I would have never seen had it not been for him. Thanks, babe.

Breast Cancer Awareness Month

For the month of October, Nathaniel and his soccer team are sporting pink to raise awareness for breast cancer. The boys absolutely liked the pink hair. In fact, they may have liked it too much that it became a distraction! And the team who has the most "team spirit" will receive a pizza party at the end of the season.

I also want to note that October is also Filipino-American History month and Pregnancy and Infant Loss Awareness month. Both very near and dear to us.

Three Months Old

Ellie-bear is three months old! She still very much likes to be swaddled but is getting too long for the swaddle blankets. Her little toes end up sticking out, which is awesome for me because it makes for easy access for kisses. I also believe that she has been conditioned that when I swaddle her, it means food is soon to follow! She rarely fights being put on a baby straight jacket. In fact, she puts her arms to the side and keeps them there, kicks her legs in excitement and flashes the biggest smile. Time to eat!

Eleanor slept through her first movie, Ice Age: Collision Course. She slept most of our time at the beach for our Labor Day tradition, too. Eleanor is definitely an easy, happy-go-lucky baby. She easily falls asleep during car rides. She falls asleep to almost anyone from church willing to hold and rock her.

Cooing and smiling are on full force. She will talk to anyone that gives her attention, even the "baby" on front-facing camera. And ever since I mentioned that she reserves the best smiles for me, the boys like to say, "Ooooh, that was a Mama smile [for me]!" Mommy is still her favorite person (yay!) and is attached to me almost 24/7. Can you say, fourth trimester?

Eleanor has started to self sooth by sucking... her nose? Just kidding. She puts her thumb in between her middle and pointer fingers and sucks her thumb/fist that way. (Like the trick, Got Your Nose!). Kuya Nathaniel noticed it so we get a laugh every time Eleanor does it.
