This past weekend we took Peanut to his first pumpkin patch with the family, and here I am sharing some pictures. Enjoy!
Another month, another IPSY package. :]
Here’s what I got:
Super cute, aqua/turquoise colored make up bag. I might actually use this one!
Four full sized products:
Epice Purifying Exfoliant – no value
Model CO. VOLUMEYES – value $20
Figs and Rouge Hand Cream in Rose Berry – $6.56
Nicole by OPI Nail Lacquer in Feeling Very Cherry – value about $8
One sample sized product:
Star Looks Lip Gloss in Guilty Pleasure – value about $3
So for $10 I got about $38 worth of products. Sounds like a win!
My verdict: I love the bag! It’s a plastic-y/waterproof exterior which I love.
I haven’t quite decided if I will try the exfoliate or not, but I’ll let you know!
I LOVE mascara, so I will definitely be testing this out. Probably tomorrow.
Who doesn’t love a good hand cream? That’s what I thought.
I’m curious to know if this color is red or brown… The name of it implies it’s a dark red (Feeling Very Cherry), but it seriously looks brown. We will see!
I probably won’t use the lip gloss. I usually stick to my tried and true Chapsticks, but this will make for a cute “throw in” to any gifts I give in the future.
Overall I’m really happy with this bag. The actual bag is probably my second favorite. (My first favorite would be last month’s bag.) I may only get around to using a couple of these products – the nail polish and mascara, but even those two alone value at $18 and I only spent $10 on this bag. It’s a win to me!
Peanut is NINE MONTHS OLD! Say what?! It’s craziness.
He had his nine month check up last Wednesday and he did GREAT! We have a happy, healthy, strong baby!
Weight: 18 lbs. 4.5 oz.
Length: 28 inches
He’s pretty petite when you’re looking at percentiles, but that really means nothing – ha! He’s healthy and that’s all that matters! He only got one shot this time around and the nurse was SO surprised when Peanut didn’t cry. Tough baby!
Let’s see… changes… the months are just starting to run together to be honest! He’s definitely saying “Dada” – he doesn’t want to say “Mama” anymore, which is sad. Ha! If you ask him “Where’s Mama?” or “Where’s Dada?” he will look at the right person, so I think he does have an idea of who we are. <3
He isn’t crawling quite yet. His choice mode of transportation is either rolling or army crawling. He is not a fan of being up on all fours. BUT, if he’s in his playpen, he will get on his knees with his hands on the rails and look over at us. He’s tried standing a couple of times too! If we stand him up next to his Exersaucer or the couch, he will gladly stand there for a while. We recently started working with him on “walking” around the furniture while holding on, and he’s doing great! I was really surprised!
If you remember from his eight month post, I mentioned that he just looooved his car seat and yada yada. Well, I jinxed myself. He’s starting to give me a hard time about going into his car seat. He cries, arches his back – the whole nine yards, but once he’s in there and strapped in it’s like he just gives up – he stops crying and just looks at me with puppy dog eyes like, “Can I come out now?” Ha! He still seems to enjoy his stroller which is great because I’m kind of skeptical about putting him in a cart (with all the germs and what not) and carrying him around the store is not ideal. He may be only 18 pounds, but he feels like he’s at least 25! :]
As I mentioned above, he definitely says “Dada” and knows who his daddy is. He has such a bond with Hubs and it’s seriously the cutest thing ever! Sometimes when Peanut’s fussy and I can’t calm him, Hubs will swoop in and BAM, all better. It’s kind of bitter sweet for me – I get sad about it because I’m like, “Hey! Over here! I birthed you!!” But I love that he is so close with his dad and I wouldn’t have it any other way. I know Hubs can’t wait until he can start taking Peanut out hunting and just for Peanut to be his little outdoor buddy.
It’s hard to believe that in just three short months our little man is going to be a year old. The time is flying by way too fast. In a way, I can’t wait until he’s a bit older and we can start taking him to things like the Children’s Museam, hiking, hockey games, etc. etc. But of course on the other hand I want him to stay the little cuddle bug that he is. <3
Nine other things to know about Peanut at nine months:
1. He loves to suck on his toes.
2. He mocks any noises we make – “muuuuuah“.
3. He LOVES his pureed baby foods!
4. He is still great at bath time. Hopefully soon he won’t need the baby bathtub.
5. His bedtime is around 9:30 PM.
6. He knows how to turn on our iPhones.
7. He’s been pretty spot on with his clothes – in 9 month clothing at 9 months. (It makes buying for him really easy.)
8. His favorite toys are mommy’s cell phone and the TV remote.
9. He is just the best, most wonderful baby ever!
Since Hubs finally has a truck, he went hunting Saturday morning while Peanut and I slept in. (Hubs got up around 4:30 AM – no thank you.) We hung out while I did all of my chores so that I wouldn’t have to worry about them the rest of the weekend – laundry, dishes, cleaning, etc.
Hubs came home around 11:30 AM (Peanut was napping) and we had lunch and just relaxed before getting ready to celebrate my mother in law’s, MV, 50th birthday! We met the rest of the family (my sister in law, her husband, and their two kids) at Longhorn Steak House for dinner. I hadn’t been there in almost three years! I got the Bacon and Cheddar Burger which was really good.
After dinner we all headed back to MV’s house for cake and a bonfire. We made s’mores and relaxed by the fire for a while and headed home around 7:30ish. (The weather was absolutely perfect for a bonfire! There was a slight breeze so it was cool without being cold.)
(I love my little photo bombing niece down in the corner – ha!)
After church on Sunday, Hubs, Peanut, and I drove up to Hubs’ cousins house and we hung out with them for a few hours. We headed home around 3:30 PM, stopped to do our grocery shopping, got home, ate dinner, got cleaned up, and watched Alaska: The Last Frontier, and went to bed.
How was your weekend?!
I’ll leave you with my double chinned baby. <3
