While Caleb and Chloe were having quiet time, Keira decided that she wanted some mommy time. So, I took her outside in her halloween outfit (not her costume) and had a photo shoot, these are some of the pictures I got. She wasn't sure of the grass, but soon enough she was trying to eat it. We had fun, and I think these pictures are cute...

So, Keira woke up with this mohawk looking hairdo...had to take pictures....I don't know how her baby fine hair got stuck like that, but I thought it was pretty funny. Of course, Chloe needed to be in the picture sporting her beautiful morning hair as well. Thank goodness I had to take the picture....otherwise, there would be three Lunn ladies with bad bed heads....

My baby girl is 6 months old. She is so sweet and wonderful. She is eating solid foods and loving them. She is not quite crawling, but scooting around pretty easily. She can sit up all by herself now. I still put a pillow behind her for those infrequent falls. She loves mom....of course because I have the goods :) She smiles at everyone and is quite the talker. She has a very loud voice, but I think she has realized that she has to speak up to be heard in this family (both sides). She is very flexible and amazingly enough, all three of my kids have quiet/nap time at the same time everyday. What a lucky mom I am .
I wanted to share a little story with you about Caleb. He started pre-school in September and he loves it. He has learned so much that surprises me. I am sure you all have had one of those moments when your child says or does something amazing and you didn't teach it to them. Kindof sad, but very cool. The other night over at Grandma's house for dinner, we asked Caleb to pray like he always does (normal prayer - "thank you Jesus for this day thank you for the food, amen"). He said "sure", and proceded by folding his hands and gets real serious, "Our father which art in heaven, hallowed be thy name (okay so I am cracking up, never heard him say this before) thy kingdom come thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven give us this day our daily bread (I am impressed now and so is everyone else)" Well, I assume he is learning the rest of it at school. I just thought it was so sweet and impressive.
Chloe is talking all the time now. She talks in complete sentences and does say some pretty funny things. When she thinks, she rolls her eyes and says "ummmmm" you have to see it to realize how cute and funny it is. And when I tell her no more, she says "just one more mommy?". She isn't allowed to get on the top bunk, but she will ask, "just for one minute?" how can you refuse her sweet smile and innocence????

We went to the pumpkin patch today and the kids had a really great time. Chloe fed the goats and loved that. The weather was perfect in the shade. It got a little warm in the sun, but overall, it was beautiful. I would have liked more shade for better pictures, but oh well, it is what it is. Keira loved her first hayride on which she decided to spit up which she conveniently does when I don't have my burp cloth with me. Thank goodness for her sock, which she didn't need anyway as it was warm enough without them. We met some friends there and that was fun. On a side note, we are thinking about selling our house to get out of the neighborhood. So, we are busy trying to paint and fix some of the odds and ends that have been needing to get done. We absolutely love the neighbors here, but we don't want Caleb or the girls going to the school right next door. A lot of things have changed since we moved here and the school isn't what it used to be. Since education is pretty important to us, we decided that we should move somewhere that we feel comfortable with sending our kids to the neighborhood school.
Okay, so the first two games for Caleb were not the best. I was beginning to wonder if he would ever play. He would stand in the middle of the field and either cry or fold his arms and be mad.
I attribute it to the fact that his first two games were at 2:00 and it was hot and during his normal quiet time AND they were getting creamed by bigger and I believe older kids..... The third game was at 8 am and he loved it. He played and ran and kicked the ball. Last night was a makeup game and he scored a goal. He was pretty excited. He and his teammates had fun and enjoyed the game amidst the soccer was lots of web shooting, playing with his shadow, and playing with his friends. Luckily, that is all allowed in the game.....I remember when I was in sports how loud my mom was and I vowed that I would never be that loud or embarras my kid like that....well, hate to say it, but I am that mom....Josh made me be quiet last night....I just couldn't though, I was so excited and had to yell. Oh well, sorry kids, you are just going to have to put up with a proud mom. And yes, I am very proud of all my kids!
