Breakdancing on Halloween

Simon showed us a new skill today...apparently he has learned how to breakdance! He entertained a whole room of people when his favorite song, Dynamite, came on!

Video Catch Up

A few videos from the past few days...

Simon and Daddy wrestling...note the realistic sumo costume Simon is in. OK, it's just his diaper.

26 months

This month has been all about prep for baby brother's arrival. Simon is getting used to the idea, at least in the abstract, although we don't think he has any clue what it actually means to have a baby in the house. But baby boy #2 is scheduled to arrive via repeat c section on 11/14, barring any surprises, so this will be the last monthly update with Simon as an only child!

So what have we been up to this month...

We visited a pumpkin patch and Simon ran all over place of course.

He has learned how to use our iphones well enough to take (tons of) pictures of himself.

he is newly obsessed with the cats--he likes to "hug" Loki and feed Leia Nilla Wafers. She is happy to oblige him by eating them.

We are barely able to take a picture of him before he wants to see it, thank god the iphone camera takes pictures on the front too...he loves to see himself on screen.

Helping Daddy with the food shopping...

breaking out the raincoat

Mama and Simon were left to their own devices for dinner one night...somehow Simon ended up eating his dinner while sitting on top of the table. hey, give me a break, I'm 9 months pregnant!

And just for fun, here's my belly at 36 weeks and 3 days...we must be close!

A new favorite, falling off the arm of the couch onto a pillow (on the couch, not on the floor).

But the most delightful part happens right at the end. trust me. :)

More inside time

More fun inside...we got some playdoh and made a cupcake, so of course we had to sing happy birthday...

We bought Simon a baby doll in preparation for his baby brother, and he helped her play the piano for a while this evening...

Indoor activities

As I mentioned in the last post, we are starting to find ourselves inside more as the weather turns cool and rainy. So we are finding new ways to get Simon's energy out...both of these videos are from today...

Flopping down the steps this morning...

Olympic-quality jumps this evening.
