Adventures in Walking! Football! and Halloween!

West took his first step a couple months ago and it seemed like he was happy enough with that for a while. Then he really started to get courageous a few weeks ago and he could walk all the way across the room if tempted by ice cream. Now he's a pro...and he LOVES it! He can bend down, pick things up, and keep going, and the second video shows another talent! He will just walk around forever checking things out. He's so curious about everything and now he can get to so much more...so much faster:)


Just your standard walking...



Taking it to the next level...



He loves putting things over his head. It's usually clothes or a blanket, but he discovered this bowl and it fits perfectly!

Go 49ers! Well, they didn't win, but they did pretty well and we had a blast. Eric was pretty excited to get to see Alex Smith and the new Crabtree in action. Eric bought tickets to the game on Ebay and we thought we'd take Weston with us (I don't know what we were thinking...the last time we took him to a sporting event he was much less mobile.) Anyway, a couple days before the game we found out that you can't take babies to the game even if you are crazy enough. So I was going to stay home and sell my ticket, but it turned out that some friends of ours want to go to a Broncos game in December so we arranged to swap babysitting and I got to go!! Thanks Mike and Laura!





And finally, we failed as parents this Halloween. Weston was a darling tiger, but the only picture I got was on my phone. At our ward party, he started screaming like something was hurting him so I tore his costume off trying to figure it out and never got a picture (I think he was just tired and hated the fact he was wearing shoes) Anyway, he had a little face paint and I did manage to get a picture of it before his bath...



That's about as good as it got with this wiggly guy!

we would settle for the ordinary, standard walking at our house! That Weston is a coordinated and Brave little boy. We try to get wynter to walk, she will stand up and shake her head no when we try and get her to walk to us. Funny, but we are getting tired of carrying that heavy body around!

Wow he is really getting around! I laughed my head off when he put the bowl on his head. He is so dang cute! Can't wait to get there and take a walk with him.

Oh, Halloween and sporting events are so much harder with little ones! He's cute, I'm sure his tiger costume was adorable.

Don't feel bad about not getting a picture... There will be lots more Halloweens! :) Looks like the game was fun!

You should put West in his costume one more time so we can see his Tiger cuteness. :) I think he will have to give Hannah a walking lesson when you come stay with us next month!
