Moses basket

Since Levi is uber affectionate with Tatum, I can't put her in the baby swing or her bouncy seat, lest she get clobbered. My friend Kim sweetly lent me her Moses basket, so I can put Tatum down on the kitchen counter safely while I work around the house. Here's Tatum enjoying her new digs.

Tatum is One MONTH!

Boy how time flies! I can't believe Tatum is already one month. 
 She sleeps ALOT of the time, which leaves me with time to spend with the boys, who are still adjusting. 
 Tatum's head of hair. No bald spot yet! 
 Tatum is still wearing newborn size clothes. Just in the last 2-3 days has she started to somewhat fit in 0-3 month outfits. I'm eager for her to move up in size because she has so many cute 0-3 month outfits that I want her to wear.
 Trying to lift her little head. She's pretty strong already! Guess she'll have to be with 2 big brothers. 
 I feel like she's SO close to having her first real smile. That will be such a sweet day! 
 On our home scale, Tatum weighed in at 10.2 lbs today. 
 I love to kiss her chubby cheeks!
Her eye sight has really been improving. It's fun to watch her focus on or follow all the activity going on around her. 

  As for sleep at night, about 3 nights a week, she's been sleeping "all night" (or just wakes up to eat, then goes right back to sleep). The other nights she may be fussy, or gassy, or just awake, so one of us (usually Ty because I'm a grouch in the middle of the night) gets up with her.
I love it when she stretches like this. She looks like Super Woman - flying through the sky! 

Halloween 2010

Here's a recap of our Halloween. I didn't really buy costumes since I didn't know how old Tatum would be and if we'd feel up to going out. Plus, I really don't like my kids to eat all that candy, so would pass on this holiday if it wasn't such a great chance to meet our neighbors and spend some fun time together as a family. I love those people who give out packages of crayons or other creative non-candy gifts - one guy this year gave Colt a plastic green finger with which to pick his nose! Levi was a UT football player this year - he wouldn't stay still enough for me to get a good picture. A scary costume this year :)
