How are you feeling? c-section wise, I feel fine. Maybe the slightest numbness still in the area, but nothing bad to note.

Emotinally, I'm hitting some tougher days. I think I'm really tired and these every 2 hour feeds have finally caught up with me. I don't feel like I get anything accomplished, and most of the time don't even have much energy or desire too either. :(

Any new milestones for your baby?

She is starting to army crawl, and last night I just felt the tip of her first tooth. She's still not sitting unassisted, but she is very close.

Big events this month?
My kids are in their 2 wk fall break right now. I don't think we will will survive this. LOL

Also, I'm the Maid of Honor in a wedding this coming weekend.

Do you celebrate Halloween? If so, how?
We do celebrate. I LOVE Halloween!!! Just a fun time to dress up and pretend. I like the scary parts of Halloween too, but my kids aren't fans of that so we don't really do much of that.

Our church has a Fall Festival we will go to, and then we will trick or treat around our neighborhood. I also want to get the kids to the pumpkin patch soon.

How are you feeling?
Really good!

Any new milestones for your baby?
In the last month he's learned to pull up and is cruising around the furniture. Just this week he FINALLY decided to start waving. He's officially done it 3 times now. :) He turns 1 this month, so that's a huge deal around here!

Big events this month?
LO's 1st bday party!

Do you celebrate Halloween? If so, how?
Well I'm not sure what we do seeing as this is our first real Halloween since last year LO was just a day old. I'm making him a sock monkey costume and hopefully we'll go show it off at the fall festival at the school I used to work at before he was born. I'm not trick or treating with a 1 yr old but maybe when he's 3 or 4 we might start that. I'm not real keen on him getting candy just yet. Most of that weekend will be taken up with birthday plans anyway.

How are you feeling? Pretty good. Still have numb areas. When the baby bounces on my stomach or I bump it or something else hits it *just* right, I have pain. Still dealing with pre-eclampsia, but it's going down, so I'm hopeful to have it gone by my next check-up in January.

Any new milestones for your baby? She's started laughing out loud more and more.

Big events this month? Busy, busy month. We've got baptism class, pumpkin/apple picking (we're doing a Pumpkin Train thing), seeing friends we haven't seen in over 10 years and my niece's 2nd birthday (on Halloween).

Do you celebrate Halloween? If so, how? Yes, I love Halloween - but not the gory/scary kind. :) I like to decorate the house and yard and watch family Halloween movies (Halloweentown movies, Hocus Pocus, etc) as well as re-read The Legend of Sleepy Hollow. We go trick or treating (although my son is saying he doesn't want to this year). I like to make Halloween treats too. Last year I made my own cinnamon chips with dip. LOL I just wish I had more people to celebrate with!

I have some of my decorations on my blog:
