Curious George costume: Costume Discounters review!

It's almost Halloween! I always get so excited for this time of year! I love when the kids pick out their costumes. I love seeing them be the character they picked out. We don't just trick or treat. We go to the zoo Spooktacular, we do a downtown Scarecrow Stroll event, and more.

Last year, Brayden was just as obsessed with Curious George as he is this year. Last year he wore a generic monkey costume. This year he got a Curious George costume! It's from Costume Discounters

Trevor and Kaylee's birthday party!

This is wayyyyy late but here are the pictures of Trevor and Kaylee's birthday party, two of my friend Amanda's kids. It was a Ninja Turtles/Monster High party. Lincoln was so excited to go. He carried the invite around since he got it. Amanda and her family are moving at the beginning of next year. I'm going to miss them so much. :(

Brayden is five years old!

August 21st was Brayden's birthday. Not sure if I ever wrote it here but that week I drove myself to the hospital with a burst appendix. I had to have it removed. I got out of the hospital on his birthday. It took weeks to feel normal-ish again. These pictures are from August though. So, on with my baby's late update.

Birth: 8 pounds 12 ounces and 22 inches
1 month old: 11 pounds and 23 inches
6 months old: 20 pounds 12 ounces and 28 inches
12 months old: 22 pounds 4 ounces and 30 inches
18 months old: 25 pounds and 31 3/4 inches
24 months old: 27 1/2 pounds and 34 inches
2 years and 3 months: 30 pounds 5 ounces  and 35 inches
2 years and 6 months: 29 pounds and 36 1/2 inches
3 years old: 31 pounds 2 ounces and 37 1/2 inches
3 years and 6 months: 33 pounds 4 ounces and 39 inches
4 years old: 35 pounds 6 ounces and 40 1/4 inches
5 years old: 39 pounds 2 ounces and 42 inches

This year Brayden has really changed. Last year he whined/cried every single day before school. This year, wow, he is different. He's in an elementary school and not a little day care setting. He walks himself to breakfast and class. He is way more independent. He is still in speech class as well as occupational therapy for hand writing. Last year, he BARELY talked. He wouldn't even talk to his teachers. Now, he never stops talking and asking questions. It's amazing how much he knows and talks about. He can tell you the most amazing stories. He's learning sight words. He currently knows every color word by sight, the, a, I, and some more. He's starting to ask how to spell things. I just love it!

I want you to help me with an animal rescue!

As many of your may know, I sell Perfectly Posh products. I am having an event for the next two weeks. Proceeds will go to the my friend Ashley's animal rescue. They need money for their non-profit license, animal food, housing, feeding, getting shots, getting the animals fixed and much more. We tried a FB party and there wasn't enough participation.

PLEASE PLEASE, even if you can't buy share the post. That alone will help. Here's the post that needs to be shared. We need all the help we can get!

Pirate Playground date with my boys.

Saturday I decided to take the boys to Pirate Playground in Fernandina. Thankfully we made it there because Sunday my tire shredded while we were on the highway. Luckily, I was with Rj and my sister. It was a really bad day and we never made it to the zoo. Saturday was a great day though. I hesitate to take my kids places by myself usually because well, they are crazy..... Am I the only parent that does this? They were pretty good though and actually listened.

Afterwards we went to PetCo because Brayden insisted we needed to get Peppy some new toys. He's been pretty giving and sweet lately. The other day at Dunkin Donuts they gave us way more donut holes than we ordered. He asked if we could stop and give some to other people. I told him I didn't know who we could give them to. He said "we should share because we have plenty". He keeps trying to make me buy stuff at the store that he thinks other people will like. "Grandma will love this" he says. It's pretty heart warming.

I'm really trying to get better at taking photos and editing photos. I feel like I am WAY WAY too hard on myself about them. I always end up thinking they could be much better and even delete some. This time I tried to take photos with different angles.

Brayden's first day of Kindergarten!

Brayden started Kindergarten August 5th. He is doing SO SO good. Last year he literally cried and whined every single day. He went to a Pre-k in a daycare. This year he is in a big school. He walks himself to breakfast and to class. He rides a bus to daycare. He's learning to read. Oh jeez. He's so grown. :'( He's still in speech and occupational therapy (for handwriting/holding writing utensils). He's just getting so big, guys. Time is going way too fast. I feel like he'll be graduating high school tomorrow. Somebody hold me!

Oh my. He looks so little! This was his first day of Pre-K.

We just love this kid so much. He is the happiest and sweetest kid. He loves EVERYBODY. He loves hugs and cuddles. He brags to everyone when Brayden or someone hugs him. He jumps right up in the morning in a perfect happy mood. He is absolutely crazy still. He will jump off anything and everything. His favorite things ever are super heroes. and ninja turtles. He takes his little hero figures in the car, to bed, in the bath, they eat dinner with him sometimes. His favorite show is Team Umizoomi.
