The cutest girl in the world

I cannot tell you how excited we are to have our little girl here at last. Here are some more cute pictures of her now that her head is going back to normal. Here is her with her eyes open and alert. She loves to look around in the evenings and try to figure things out.

Proud Big brother

Porter is just in love with his little sister. He showers her in kisses and hugs all day and shares all of his toys. He even offered her his milk one time when she was crying. Now he wants her to kiss his owies better (he does this by putting his owie to her mouth and making kissing noises)

Porter didn't really know what to think about Halloween this year. He just looked at everyone funny because they looked so different. But he was more than happy to take their candy off of their hands. We had three parties to go to this year and it was so much fun. First was the ward party. Porter only wanted to play with the bean bags and tried to hord all of them.

Next we went trick or treating at the mall. It was so much fun and I didn't have to worry because I knew it was safe. But the only thing that Porter would say to people is "bye". So obviously he was not so keen on being there as I was. Maybe because I got to get out of the house and go hang out with friends and their kids.

We also carved a pumpkin and Porter wanted nothing to do with touching the inside of it. It was so funny. He really is a texture child. But when the candle was in he was more than interested in playing with it.

Then two fun things about Porter. He is learning how to dress/undress himself. He knows where all the different articles go but it is much more fun to take them off and he does it in his own way.

Then this is how much Porter likes his books. He spreads them all over the floor, reads them one by one and then puts them back. Really putting them back means giving them to me to stack wherever I am. But I thought this was so funny.
