Only Treats this year!

Happy (belated) Halloween to all of you! I tried to post last night, but wasn't able to get my pictures to load and didn't want to come without the good stuff - lest I be lashed out against. So, here it is!

Before we get to Donavyn's pictures, I just want to share that we got Gabriel's October medical report. As of Monday, our boy weighs 17 lbs and is 27 inches long! I can't believe it! He's getting so big now! He has two teeth now and is eating solids. And of course he's sitting up on his own too. I can't believe he is 7 months already. Will you all be praying fervently that we get a call within the next week? Every month we get new pictures, we fall more in love and yet our heart breaks a little more also b/c he is not here with us. We want Gabriel and Donavyn to be together and we want our family complete - until we decide to have more kids. Ok, so here are his pictures...

He's getting so big!
He looks like he's just amazed by something...
I remember getting pictures when he didn't even fill up this scale!
Sitting up so big and tall!
Zach had duty for Halloween, so he didn't have to go in until the afternoon, which allowed us to go for a walk. We took her out for the first time in a stroller. She seemed to like it until we got to the really pothole-y part. She was just jibber-jabbering and then fell asleep and started talking again. It was so cute.
We dressed her up as a chili pepper during the day. Doesn't she just look so cute? Of course, Zach had to keep making silly comments that she must be chilly - get it? chilly? (yeah, he said it). He's a goob, but he's cute and I think I'll keep him.
Then after her bath I put her in her BOO outfit with the cat hat and socks Aunt Dee (I got it right this time!) sent. They were a little big, but she looks SO cute. Of course, I'm a little biased, but she is, right?
I tried putting the hat on before the bath, but she was tired of me getting up and down with the trick or treaters and messing up her feeding and taking so many darn pictures. Oh well, she better get used to it! I'll be taking her picture for a looong time.
Oh, and she just loves her swing, which is where she's chillin' here in this one.
This last one is what she went to have lunch with Daddy in at work the other day. Fitting, no? I'm glad she'll be able to wear it for a while. One day soon we'll take her up there in it and have pictures made with her daddy in front of a 60.
Ok, that's enough for now. Happy Harvest! Enjoy November and remember to be thankful for all you are blessed with, I know we have plenty to be thankful for. Please remember to pray for Gabriel's quick arrival home too! Thanks so much for your thoughts and prayers!

Gabirel is gorgeous! You know we will keep on praying for him to get home to you quickly! Donavyn is too precious in her costumes! Where did you find the boo outfit? Loved the screaming photo! Remember the one of Conley and Olivia screaming in their first costumes? We love you all!
