Except for this month. October was pretty crummy for Teddy. I'm actually writing this two months late because of just how rough it was on all of us. Sleep was lost, never to be recovered. Various ailments visited in sundry forms, all of which resulted in turning my laid-back, up-for-anything baby into a total fussbudget.
Now, fussbudget by Teddy's standards is still pretty easy.
But, c'mon - we've got 3 of these boogers now.
So, with all of the drama and unexplained night-waking, there must be some new teeth, right?
Pizza, bread, celery, apples, and crackers. And leaves. I'm not gonna lie, this man has had some roughage, because, hey, he's #3 and sometimes he's plopped in a pile of leaves while I'm trying to break up a fight or help somebody ride without training wheels. For some reason, he loves a water bottle and will snatch it right out of his unsuspecting victim's mouth.
He's quite opinionated and enthusiastic all around, in fact. He claps when he hears his jam ("If You're Happy and You Know It") of course, but also when he sees his favorite peeps or a toy he wants.
Young Teddy has also mastered the stair down to the den and aspires to climb to greater heights as we've caught him eyeing the steps to the second floor.
There are no cute pictures of our little Harold and the Purple Crayon on Halloween, because, well, our Harold was not up to taking any moonlit strolls.
Turns out, basing your family costume around an infant is a pretty dicey business.
Teddy and the family had a blast in St. Louis, and we had fun celebrating Mike's birthday!

Eight months are in the bag, and we can't imagine life without our littlest!
We are really looking forward to the excitement of the holidays as a family of FIVE.
