Hunter has the best cousins ever! Here is a picture of his cousin Aaron. He is almost 2 years old and he is so great with Hunter. He likes to talk to him and play with him. He always points, smiles & tries to say Hunter's name every morning when I drop him off for the day. It's so cute! Hunter smiles & stares at Aaron any chance he gets. I know they will be best friends!
Here is our attempt to get a picture of all three kids.....obviously, not so good. Selah was not having it. The two boys were chillin' while Selah demanded off the floor :) Oh well, maybe next time we will get a good shot.
Selah & Hunter are five weeks apart. It is so great to have them so close in age. I am sure they will have a ton of fun as they get older. Selah is catching up to Hunter!
We welcomed home Aaron just in time for Thanksgiving. Aaron was serving as an Army medic in Iraq for the past year. We thank God that there are people like him who are willing to fight for our freedom.
We met him and his group at the old hanger bay at Sky Harbor Airport. It was really cool. They all marched in and Governor Nepolitano spoke & thanked them for their service. Then they were dismissed. It was amazing to see all the families there. I couldn't believe how many men & women had to leave behind their small children.
Hunter was only 2 weeks old the last time Aaron saw him. He has grown a ton since then! Hunter wore a little red onesie that read " My uncle, my soldier, my hero." We were all very happy to see him home safe and sound.
Here are some random 3 month pictures of Hunter. I love putting overalls on my little man. He is so cute in them! But pants make him look older than he actually is...don't know why, but they just do. We also bought him this adorable teddy bear cozy. we can put it on over his clothes to keep him warm. It has little bear ears on the hood and paw prints on the feet.
For Halloween, I went with my sisters & thier families to the pumpkin patch. We had so much fun. We searched around for the perfect pumpkin. But first, we had to get pictures! We took this cute picture of Selah hanging out with a couple of pumpkins, or at least trying to. The pumpkins are bigger than her! Jon & Sarah tried to get Aaron to pick out his pumpkin. They wanted to make this a tradition for him. Sarah had planned to use the pumpkin to make a fresh homemade pumpkin pie. Aaron kept picking out the sad looking yellow pumpkins....too funny! Finally he found the perfect orange pumpkin. We bought Hunter a tiny pumpkin, perfect for his size and of course we had to get one for each of us too (yes, I know, we will never grow up, LOL). By the end of the night, Hunter crashed in daddy's arms. He had a fun night with his cousins.
Hunter was a puppy for Halloween. His costume had floppy ears and a cute little tail. It was so funny but he absolutely loved wearing his costume. Everytime he had it on, he would smile ear to ear and giggle. He would snuggle with it too :) We went to our church's fall fest on Halloween night. They had fun games for the kids, raffles for the adults and even a petting zoo.
