... and... today our little Darby girl is FOUR MONTHS OLD! Time flies! This morning I was nursing her at 9 am, I just kept thinking about how four months ago I was pushing away and we were about to meet her. Now four amazing months later, she has changed so much and is growing by leaps and bounds every single day! Four month check up is tomorrow morning, so I'll be sure to post sometime after that to update on her growth! I also need to take some "I am 4 months old" pictures! Stay tuned!

On another note, last week Eric started taking our little D on a nightly run with him in the baby jogger. She loves it! He says she is quiet the whole time - well she's only been three times, and fell asleep once! I have her all dressed and wrapped in a blanket and as soon as Eric gets home from work we put her in the jogger. He gets changed and off they go! It's great because I get to cook dinner (which I love to do) without interruption! I will have to take some pictures of Darby all snuggly in the jogger. For now, here are a few from their very first run together last Saturday

The day Darby was born, her eyes widened (I am not exaggerating!) when her Great Grandpa spoke to her. He is very special, the only Great Grandpa she has living and is one of those - one in a million kinda people. She already loves him very much, as I think it's very obvious by looking at these pictures.

On Wednesday night, we started off by carving our pumpkins, and Darby helped!
Eric carved out the big pumpkin, and I handled the carving of Darby's little one. Next year we are going to get 3, one Daddy pumpkin, one Mommy pumpkin, and a Darby pumpkin! This year Eric carved a skeleton cross bones into the big one, and I made an owl face in the small one. Eric's still looked great by Friday, but mine ended up caving in before the trick or treaters could see it!
Here is Darby's Halloween day outfit. (I got the tshirt for 2 bucks the day before!)
On Halloween night, we set up 2 chairs and a table with the pumpkins on it at the end of our driveway to hand out candy. It was a lot of fun seeing all the little kids dressed up (and some scary teenagers too!). Darby was a trooper, stayed in her costume the whole night, and everyone commented on how cute she looked - and of course we concurred!
Once there was a lull with trick or treaters, we got together with some of our neighbors and walked down to a haunted house. I opted to stay outside with Darby and the twins (our neighbors that are 3 and a half), but everyone else went inside. I'm not a big haunted house person, I actually HATE them, so I wasn't sad to miss it! Eric said it was really good, and I'm sure it was - the little girl Andrea that lives across the street from us came out crying, her dad came out laughing. I'm guessing I would have been more like Andrea then her Dad!
It was a great first Halloween for our little family. We are looking forward to next year and doing it again, plus taking Darby around to trick or treat!
