What have we been up to???

Look how he's grown!

So we went to the apple orchard/pumpkin patch a couple of weekends ago, and I just uploaded a few pictures to my computer- so here is a preview to compare last year to this year! Look at that tiny baby and now a little boy! Still loves his camo pants! More pics to come!

I was on call 4/7 days two weeks ago so I didn't do too much exciting (although fortunately it was a pretty quiet week of call ). So nothing really to report. And no pictures.

Then last week I went to a week long training course to become a Certified Lactation Counselor- this is one of the first steps for my eventual goal to become a IBCLC (lactation consultant) - I really have been looking forward to this for a long time!

I learned SO much during that week- the teachers did a great job and I met lots of fun women! I missed my boys, and I know they missed me, but I hope that the things I learned will make a difference for the moms in my practice and it makes it totally worth it for me. It is so fulfilling as a pediatrician to help a mom through difficult times and help her meet her goals.

Of course it will be another 6-8 weeks till I find out if I actually passed my test!!!

So i have a million pics I need to blog- but I'm posting a quick video from my phone- this is Connor playing with his "see and say" the other night. Remember this toy, 80's babies??? Anyway, if you listen you can hear him saying the sounds the animals make.....

Halloween Costume is Here!!!

Last year Connor was a monkey- a very adorable little monkey of course. october 037
We were trying to decide what for him to do this year, as he is blissfully unable to make too many preferences about his costume right now (and this will soon change :)
I have a friend whose son Jackson was a dragon last year- this was the costume I really wanted for Connor last year that had been sold out.
So guess who is borrowing it this year?? Me of course!!!!
We got it in the mail this morning, and he demanded to try it on immediately. It fits perfectly!
