Sick :(

So Caeden experienced his first "real" sickness yesterday.  He got some kind of stomach bug that involved a small fever, LOTS of throwing up, and just plain not feeling good.  He threw up 5 times throughout the day...he was so hungry and kept wanting to eat, but of course I couldn't let him.  It was awful!  And it was so sad...Everytime he would throw up, he would just look at me like he didn't know what was happening!  It hurt my heart so bad!  But I have to mention my great friend, Alison, who stopped what she was doing in the middle of the morning and drove 25 minutes over to me to bring me Pedialyte, Lysol, Carpet cleaner :), and Desitin (for possible diarrhea).  I needed these things so bad as I was quickly going through towels and outfits, but I knew there was no way I could get him out to Walmart.  Thanks Alison for being such a selfless, great friend!  It was a long day, but he woke up mostly better today.  Still has a low-grade fever and a little fussy, but no throwing up!  So that's great!  I was a very tired mommy yesterday...thus causing me to go to bed at 8:30!  But I needed the sleep so it was good!  Now we're just praying that Reid and I don't get what he had.

Caeden the Monkey

So this post is going to be all about our Halloween celebration!  It all started last week.  We read pumpking books and Halloween books to Caeden all week.  Then on Friday, we did a Halloween craft....We made Popcorn Pumpkins!!  Caeden and Ella had so much fun!  At first, they wanted to eat more than they wanted to glue on.  But by the end, they were getting the hang of it.  Now it's hanging on our fridge. :)

Sunday night, Caeden got to go trick-or-treating for the first time.  Last year he was only 2 mos old, so while he DID dress up, we just went to hang out with some friends.  This year, he actually got to walk house to house with his other toddler friends while they learned how fun it was to get free candy. 

Here is a picture of him with all his friends before we actually started.

And here is Caeden the Monkey!!  Just so cute! :)

And off they go!!

I have to say that Caeden did a great job keeping up with his friends.  He would follow them to each door, take candy from the bowl (with mommy and daddy's help) and then put it in his bag.  The hardest part for him was actually dropping the candy in his bag.  He wanted to hold onto it and eat it right then.  I don't even know how he knew what it was!  But we finally got the hang of it and had a blast!  When we got home, Caeden's best friend Ella came to visit and take pictures.  Aren't they just so cute??  The Ladybug and the Monkey...Awww! 

Well, I guess that's it!  It was a fun one!  And I'm sure it will only get better each year!  Happy Halloween to everyone!
