I have been enjoying this little guy more and more each day. Tonight we went to a Halloween party (pictures will come later!) and I said, 'Garrett, can mommy have a kiss?' and he turned his head and leaned in and pushed his mouth on my cheek. I couldn't stop smiling! He is growing and learning and giving kisses?! I didn't even think he knew what that meant but he's catching on quickly.
We have enjoyed his first Halloween already so much already. We went to get pumpkins, went to a party, went to an amusement park for a free fun day, and are going trick or treating this monday evening. I realize he is way too little but we're walking around with friends and i'm looking forward to it. :)
Garrett is sleeping through the night. I feel refreshed in the morning! We put him down and he is sleeping until around 7am. It took a few nights of letting him cry it out but now he understands. We spend a great deal of time together during the day and I get to love on him plenty but at night we need our time and sleep. I'm really thankful that this has been a smooth transition. I don't mind the occasional getting up for emergencies but every night for the last 8 months isn't good for our family.
I hope you have a wonderful Halloween!
