Koby turns one, bottle is bye-bye, and mama is growing

Well Mr Ohia turned 1 on the 14th and it was so fun! Kaleb was home that day so we made cakes, cupcakes, potatoe salad and cleaned up the house. It is fun to kind of plan a party and get all ready for it. I loved the way the cake turned out and I loved how Koby dug into it! He loved all of his presents and was way funny! Erin and Josh brought their video camera so we have most of it on tape which is so fun, thanks so much! Then on Saturday we went to Snowflake to haul wood with my family which was fun. My mom gave Koby this cute barn set that moo's and sings "old McDonald had a Farm" and Koby loves it! I just can't believe how fun it was for me to see him turn one and to have a little party! I know I'm a crazy mom.

About two weeks ago we gave up the bottle. Koby started to kind of get fussy and I didn't really know why, I was trying to limit his bottles and it just wasn't working and my mom suggested to just throw away the I did and Koby did great! Its like he knew that my mom and I were talking about it because when I went to lay him down (without a bottle) he just layed down and didn't even cry at all and did the same thing for every nap that first day so I threw them away! Yea, no more cleaning out bottles and no more buying formula!!!! That deserves like a huge Huray!

Me well, I am growing I tell ya! I'm getting excited because we find out what we are having next Wednesday, one week from today! My mother in law is going to watch Koby so not only will we get to find out but it will be a date, and a long one at that!! We haven't been so good at doing the date thing so I LOVE it when we get to. I make such a big deal out of it and I think Kaleb is embarressed but I don't care! Well maybe I will get brave enough to take a picture of my growing belly. I didn't take any belly shots with Koby and now I think it would be kind of cool to see how big I was. I mean I know I was big but you forget how big...(do I want to remember?) Well I know this is an extremely long post and I am sorry but Koby is asleep and the dishes, vacuuming, sweeping and mopping are done so lay off.

HaPpY HaLlOwEen

Having a kid puts a whole new meaning to Halloween. It even brings out the kid in me and you know I sort of wanted to dress up. Maybe next year since I'll have two that will mean double duty and I'll really dress up. Kaleb had to work so he didn't get home until 6:30 then we went over to my in laws and just hung out and had fun getting some trick or treaters at their house. Koby would run over to the door when the bell rand and would just stand there and stare at the kids in costume. He must have thought that was really weird. I'm kind of bummed, well we carved pumpkins on Monday night which was very fun, the whole time Kaleb was telling me that we were carving them too early and I thought no its fine. Well we forgot to buy candles to put in them so I regret to say that our carved pumpkins that we spent 6 bucks a piece on sat on our counter and by the time yesterday arrived we had purchased candles but I they were so moldy that I did not want to stick my hand in them...lesson for next year..carve them later...or listen to kaleb...or carve them early, remember candles and stick them outside and light them and stuff, so you do really realize the are getting so gross?...
