Thanksgiving already??

Trying for a kiss

Reading with daddy
Blankie love - this boy loves his flannel blankets (or BB as he calls them). He doesn't care which one but he has to have his BB for bedtime and when he gets up in the morning, if there are three blankets in bed with him, he has to take all three out with him. He does not want any other kind of blankets on him...no quilts, no microfleece, nothing...just BB's. Thank goodness Granny made about 20 of them!

Look at that smile...all mischief there!

Man, I can't believe that Christmas is just around the corner! Santa will be here so soon. I have a feeling that Chase is NOT going to be happy to see Santa at the mall this year. I doubt I will even be able to get him out of my arms this time.

Chase is just growing up before our eyes...he just seems like a little man already. He is really talking up a storm and starting to string words together too. He is so dang smart, you wonder where he picks up the things he does.

He loves to have books read to him...first I read it to him then he has to have Daddy read the same book too. Then he gets another book and starts over. He loves to point out the different pictures and identify them. He is loves to color too and make sure that you don't have a pen around him, cause he wants it! His big thing now is pulling and pushing us when he wants something. He tries to pick us up by pulling on our shirt or pant leg to get us to go with him somewhere and he always has to give his sound effects to show how heavy we are.

His eating is getting better again. There for a while, we had about 4 things to choose from for dinner (if you didn't want a fight). But he seemed to get better. He definitely wants to eat like a big boy, using your fork and wants your plate. No little boy bites for him anymore. He always wants to feed himself and gets mad if he thinks you are going to try and feed him.

He loves watching me cook and imitates me alot by dragging out my pots and pans and mixing imaginative food! He likes to try and feed us and have us drink blocks full of juice. He is quite the chef!

Halloween Fun!

Our little tiger...note the tongs!

Chase had a fun halloween this year! He was a tiger! He looked so dang cute in his costume...loved the padding in the belly and butt area!

On Halloween, we went to Nana and Kay's (Famous' mom and aunt) house for dinner. We played for a while there and then got into costume. He was not liking the costume at all in the beginning. Then he found a pair of tongs that he liked playing with (I know, this kid cracks me up!) and it completely distracted him...he was fine from then on! We then went to James & Jaime's house, Great-Grandma Stokes, Granny & Grampa's house and the babysitter and neighbors. He did really good, but I could tell he was pretty pooped by the end of it all.

I finally am trying to upload some video. I have no skills with editing it, so bear with my bad taping skills. But it is too cute of Chase walking up to Granny's house! Make sure and turn up the volume and listen for him talking.
