I finally finished Olivia's scrapbook page for October...getting closer to finished (hey, she's not two yet!).

Journaling reads:

Well, little Missy, you’re now almost six months old…where does the time go?

You entered October with a yucky tummy flu. But, you finally mastered sitting up on your own with only a little bit of support from the boppy pillow.

On the 7th, we made a trek up to Apple Hill, where you weren’t too thrilled to be placed in the pumpkins for mommy to take your picture. Sorry! It could’ve been cute!

The next week for playgroup we headed out to Bishop’s Pumpkin Farm, where you seemed to enjoy looking at all the animals & pumpkins. That weekend we went to another pumpkin patch (Zittels, here in Folsom). You had fun there riding in a wagon with Brandon.

You had mastered sitting all by yourself by the time you were officially six months old. However, that was little consolation to me. You see, you had spent the better part of the month crying & clinging to me non-stop. And as much as I loved that you only wanted me, and cried for me when I was gone, I was exhausted! So, we took you to the doctors, only to find out nothing was wrong except that it was time to get you to take a bottle so that I wasn’t your only food source. And what a world of difference that was! Looking back, I think you also had at least one ear infection during this time (the first of many!)

By the time we had our Halloween picnic for playgroup, just two days after getting you started on formula, you were almost a different baby! So happy! And everyone knows, a happy baby means a happy mommy! You were so cute as a little monkey!

That Sunday we had Trunk or Treat at church, and you were a cute little decoration for our car  You did really well, even though it was a long day. And you even went trick or treating on Halloween, although you didn’t last long for that! WAY past your bedtime.

Overall it was a great month, though at the time it seemed like a very long month! Here’s to November!
