Now, for some great, awesome, exciting, fabulous, wonderful news. We had another cranial scan yesterday and Caroline's head looks really good. Without giving you the confusing numbers and measurements, Caroline has met all the dismissal criteria to come out of the helmet. She has about two more weeks of growing room in the helmet so we're going to finish filling it out then she's DONE!! So two weeks from this Monday, Caroline will be finished with the helmet. Yay!!! We're so excited and so happy with how her head looks!!!

Caroline's smile quickly turned to a cry when she realized I was taking her picture instead of picking her up. Bad mommy :-)

- DO NOT take your 6 1/2 month old infant, who doesn't like bright, hot, sunny days to a shadeless pumpkin patch on a bright, hot, sunny day!!
- DO NOT wear long sleeves and jeans to a shadeless pumpkin patch on a bright, hot, sunny day!!
- DO NOT attempt any big outing on a Sunday with your 6 1/2 month old infant who is sleep deprived because of church and a short morning nap.
- DO NOT ever visit a pumpkin patch with children if the temperature outside is more than 70 degrees!!
- DO NOT take your 6 1/2 month old infant to a really fun pumpkin patch filled with bounce houses, hay rides, hay mazes, slides, and a fun little train when all he/she can really do is sit up and therefore misses all of the fun of the pumpkin patch in the first place.
Obviously, you see what we were attempting to do. Uh, didn't quite work...

One of the reasons we went to this particular pumpkin patch was because they have this ADORABLE pot to sit your baby in. I SO badly wanted a picture of Caroline sitting in there, smiling her sweet smile. No such luck. She HATED this thing!! When will the control freak in me learn that sometimes I don't run this show no mo'?!? Here I am pleading with her to cooperate.

Is anyone surprised Caroline is eating her costume (sigh)??
Caroline and Lucy (the Strawberry)...I don't think she could stuff anymore of that pumpkin into her mouth!!
Our playgroup dressed up all of the kids. I couldn't fit everyone into one picture so I had to break it up into two pics (and I still cut off sweet Finn...sorry buddy). From Left to Right: Finn the Monkey, Ava the Kitten, Luke the Pea in the Pod, Parker the Pony, Ethan as Ethan :-), Stone the Penquin, Caroline the Pumpkin, and Lucy the Strawberry.

Seriously, how cute is this kid?!?
Cason...the leader of the pack. He's starting to walk now, way to go, big boy!! Not one of Caroline's finer pictures. Here she is trying so hard to open her eyes and smile for the camera. Didn't come out so good. She really enjoyed the yummy straw cuisine.
"I'm gonna getcha" How funny is Parker's disgusted expression?!?
Fun buddies!! Caroline & Cason
And so concludes an exciting trip to the pumpkin patch with a 6, 10, and 14 month old :-)

Just in case you're wondering why there are a lot of pictures on the blog with Caroline NOT wearing her helmet, it's because we take it off a lot for pics. We didn't want all of her baby pictures between 5-7 months to be in the helmet. So we often take it off for a few minutes to snap some pics then back on it goes.

"Give me that cell phone!!" Is it too early to start teaching this little girl that it's not polite to grab?!? How in the world do kids know to "fight" over toys at such an early age?
Happy birthday, James!!
After the party, we drove up to Plano to visit our friends, Kara and Aaron Acker. We got to meet their little girl, Kate, for the first time. She's so beautiful!!! Caroline loved meeting Kate and kept trying to hold her hand. Can you believe Kate is only 7 weeks old in this picture? Kara and Aaron are very tall :-)
Kara, Caroline, me, and Kate
Sunday, we woke up and headed to church. Here is Caroline, dressed (minus her shoes) and ready to go.
After church and a much too short nap, we took Caroline to one of our favorite restaurants (and definitely our favorite Mexican restaurant), Chuy's!!! Caroline really enjoyed herself although she would have enjoyed it more if she could have had some of that queso. Yum!!!
We had a relaxing Sunday afternoon. Caroline took another nap that was way too short (ugh!), then woke up and watched some of the Cowboys game with us while we waited for Kalo to come babysit. Matt and I headed off to bible study once Kalo came over and Caroline spent the rest of the night playing with her sweet grandmother (thanks for babysitting, mom!)
