Happy Halloween From The Baker's!
We had a great Halloween this year! After going back and forth about whether or not to take Jake out trick or treating with us, we decided to go ahead take him. We went trick or treating in my parents neighborhood which is not very crowded and I had decided he would stay in his stroller and I would not take him right up to anyone. That was the plan anyway...
Jake like usual showed us he had his own plans. He fussed so I took him out of the stroller to carry him and before we hit the second house he was fast asleep on my shoulder. So I brought him back to my mom's house and put him to bed while we took Aidan trick-or-treating.
It was so fun watching Aidan run from house to house. The previous years we would have to drag him up to the doors. This year he was in full trick-or-treat gear. He couldn't wait to go to each house. Of course he had to go dressed as Thomas the Tank Engine. There was no deciding, it was a given. Aidan LOVES Thomas. He is so funny though because if anyone called him Thomas he would look at them straight in the face and say "I am not Thomas, I am Aidan Baker". He is funny like that. Such a serious little guy.
Aidan made out like a bandit with candy. Which means mommy and daddy made out with candy as well lol. Overall I would say it was a perfect Halloween.
Jake is rolling over onto his belly all of the time now. He still doesn't like it very much but is starting to get used to it. He is also starting to sit up much better now. I can see him being mobile very soon.
Another big advancement is for the past few days he has been taking 4 ounces of formula at a time. This is big for him since not to long ago (weeks) we barely could get him to take 2 ounces. We still have a long way to go before he does not need him g-tube anymore but its a step in the right direction.
Aidan and Jacob continue to grow closer. Every morning Aidan tells me he wants to see Jacob's Friendly Face lol. Jacob leans into Aidan like he wants to hug him and he can't get enough of watching him. Its really amazing to watch this bond grow.
Now for some more pictures...
