The Golden Days of Fall

Fall is by no means over (despite some snow fall last week), but I haven't posted in a while, so it's time to display some of my backlogged photos of Buddy.

We spent some time out in the leaves, enjoying the Fall weather and looking at some Fall color.

Buddy is in a full-blown learning mode lately. He has started learning words and copying sounds at a surprising rate lately. He seems to do this in spurts. I decided to document his current list of words. At 16 months he can say the following:
no ("nah, nah, nah"), tree ("twee"), chair ("chee"), cracker, banana ("nana"), shoes ("shoos"), clock, moo, Vroom Vroom, quack (interchangeable for duck), Mama, Dada, door, go, circle ("kurkle"), goat, car, cookie, Cuckoo (his teddy bear), uh-oh, show (as in "watch a tv show"), what's that ("wassat"), outside ("side"), peach, fry and baby ("be be").

Cute rocket ship jammies:

And finally, Halloween! Poor kid was sick on the actual day, but he was able to show off his costume the day before for some pre-Halloween festivities at D's work and the neighborhood trunk or treat. Then the day after, he got to do a private fashion show up at Grandma and Grandpa B's house.

The Dread Pirate Robert!

And he made a cute sailor too:

Stay tuned, we may have an announcement to post in the next day or so. :)


  1. That's the cutest Dread Pirate I've ever seen!

    Can't wait for the big announcement...

  2. That is the most awesome costume!

    And I can't believe he's already saying so much! Upload a video if you ever think of it - I'd love to see him in action.

  3. What a cutie!!! He's growing so fast. He's truly a toddler, not a baby anymore.
