Halloween and fun with Mr. Bear
Patrick experienced his first October 31st today. I say that because he really had no idea that it was a day when lots of kids run around and get sick on Candy. He simply allowed us to dress him up in his outfit that Vivian's cousin Denise gave him and eat and sleep like normal while the festivities began around the cul-de-sac.
It is exciting seeing him grow, notice shapes and colors, and generally enjoy life as long as he is changed and fed. Those 2 simple ingredients along with sleep can make the biggest difference in his world as all parents quickly find out. He enjoys Mr. Bear, a musical wind up bear, that was also played for him in the womb as he has playtime or up-time in the morning and evening.
He is 1 month old on Tuesday November 4th. 1 year ago we had no idea that he would be coming into our lives. How quickly time can change.
Thanks for reading
