Brandon and I were born 10 days apart, so we celebrate our birthday together. It's really nice actually because my birthday feels more important. ha ha! Just kidding...well, sort of. My mom made this AMAZING meal for us last Sunday. She also made Brandon's request for a homemade fresh berry lattice pie and my permanent request for plum couken (cheesecake)! It was a lot of fun! Brandon's family couldn't make it, but we celebrated with them earlier in the month. :)

Today after Brandon got home from school, we bought a pumpkin and a carving kit! While our lil punkin took a nap, Bran and I tackled this pretty impressive Haunted House in 40 minutes (aka the exact amount of minutes Bay Bay gives us usually)!? I think we did a pretty good job.

We're putting the baseball season BEHIND us...

Life has been awesome lately...I've started Bayer on real foods. Yes, he's not quite 4 months yet (don't judge me) but this child is HUGE! How am I supposed to sustain this bulldozer myself! Brandon and I actually have a "date night" once a week now because Bayer's grandma Annette is so close and willing! Yay! So it's been a nice break and Brandon and I look forward to spending time with each other each week. The first date night we went out to eat and shopped around. The second we played tennis, I won't brag about the results (**stretch**killed him**yawn**sigh**).

Things about Bayer at almost 4 months...

He's still an awesome sleeper at night
He smiles if you smile at him
He seems very mature for his age...sounds weird but true
He likes to sit in his bumbo while i do my make up
He loves to have the most crazy blow outs ONLY
He hums when he eats (I used to do that too)
He is frantic with his fingers in his mouth
His left tear duct is still clogged-lol
He rolls over like a pro
He's started grabbing for toys
Brandon and Bayer bond while I sleep an extra hour between 7:45 -9ish everday almost
He giggles if you fake laugh at him

Bayer's 4 month stats:
Bayer is 17 pounds (95%)
Bayer is 26 3/4 inches (100+%)
Bayer's head is 17 1/4 inches (95%)

The office

Let me preface by saying this was a while ago when I started this post...but it's taken some research and what not...

Brandon and I have recently discovered the netflix instant streaming disc for playstation 3. Basically you can watch a bunch of movies and tv shows instantly (usually movies that are little bit older, but pretty new tv shows). Anyways, this has been a life saver for me because lets be honest I'm not going a lot places with an 8-week old and TV has been a friend. So Brandon and I have watched the entire 5 seasons of the office over the past month I'd say. Hilarious. To watch them back to back gives the show the justice it deserves. Some of the best episodes are...

Season 1

Season 2


Season 3
-Back from Vacation

Season 4
-Goodbye Toby

Season 5
-Moroccan Christmas

Season 6
Koi Pond


Car Accident

Holy annoying. Two Sundays ago I got into a car accident in our apt complex. I was fine, the baby wasn't with me thank goodness. Anyways, this guy was driving in the middle of the road and wasn't paying attention. I however had stopped and had time to honk at him! Needless to say this is what happened...

So I called the cops, blah blah blah. Turns out he can't write a citation (normally this is how you assume fault for insurance purposes), because the complex is private property. Thank goodness the cop could clearly see that I was driving on the correct side of the street and wrote up a nice police report, which we had to order later in the week to prove my innocence. Check out this sweet diagram he drew.

I filed a claim with the other guys insurance and let me tell you this guy was definitely in good hands. They fought and fought Brandon and I over the course of 11 days! Telling us to just put a claim in with our insurance-meaning, accept fault and have to pay our $500 deductible--I don't think so. So Brandon hounded the insurance representative who was handling our case like nobody's business. I think it was the "I will call you everyday until this is resolved" and the "if liability isn't accepted by your company by tomorrow I will be contacting your superior." Needless to say the next day they decided to cover 100% of the damages! YAY!

We did learn a lesson that I want to share. Always have renters insurance because being carless until they accepted liability wasn't any fun. Also, don't move your car if you don't have to after an accident. Lastly, take video of the scene.

Tummy Time

Just waking up. Bayer tired.
