Here's my five!
| O N E | If having the flu last week wasn't already enough, I also sprained my ankle this week. How? Well, my sweet, potty trained (!!!) boy sprayed a little too much air freshener out into the entryway after using the bathroom and I slipped on it when I went to check on him.
It hurt like heck! I've never sprained or broken anything before. Anyway, luckily it was the end of the day, so when I got done being in too much pain to walk and crying, we just watched a show, and then Keith came home and examined me (how awesome it is to have a PT for a husband), iced me and all was fine. I'm still limping around a bit, but it's healing up. October has not been a good month for me so far!
| T W O | I made these Mummy Quesadillas for O last year (back when he would still eat melted cheese!) and they've been featured in a round up of Mummy Themed Halloween Treats for Kids on Red Tricycle. There are some really cute ideas included in the collection, so go check 'em out!
| T H R E E | Halloween is right around the corner, and I think we've finally locked Owen in on his Halloween costume. We've purchased THREE costumes this year, with the first two being for dress up, although we'd hoped he might use one for his costume. In the end Keith and I jumped the gun and ordered him a Peter Pan costume because he absolutely loves the movie and thinks PP is the coolest. We were worried he would say he wanted to be something else because every time someone would ask him he would make something new up, but after trying on the costume he's all about it. Whew! Next year we'll wait until well into October to make a purchase.
| F O U R | I had my regular visit with my OB yesterday to check on the baby's progress, etc., and everything is going very well! She had me stop going to my regularly scheduled ultrasounds (because of my high-risk status due to a low PAPP-A result) because he's growing so well. What a relief that is! And I also have to admit it is nice to not need to drag Owen with me along on extra doctor's appointments, especially since I'll be going every 2 weeks for the next month. Also, I must note that this was the first time in either pregnancy that I had not gained an ounce since my last visit. Cue the fireworks!
Fall Scavenger Hunt Printable to share with you! Owen and I had so much fun going on our nature walk to collect all of the things, and we'll be doing it again soon since he keeps requesting it. If you're looking for more fun was to stimulate your little one's growing brain check out the First 5 California website where you will find a wealth of knowledge and free resources to help you! There are videos from the President and First Lady, a free kit for new parents, tips on selecting the right preschool and an Activity Center filled with fun things you can do with your baby, toddler or preschool to exercise their brain and enrich their day!
| S I X | And I just had to come back and edit this and ad a 6th to my 5 to share that I just saw there is a Little Blue Truck's Halloween book! Did you know? I don't know how I didn't see this sooner, but we're definitely going to go check it out at the book store or get it on Amazon today!
We have a full weekend ahead of us! I hope yours is a great one!
