Happy Halloween!

We are kicking off trick or treating early!
Our zoo had their Boo at the Zoo this weekend and we definitely had to go.
It was a beautiful day today too, so we lucked out!
Drake was so excited to be a tiger and he loved that Sonja was a ladybug.
We had a blast at the zoo, enjoy the pics!

Drake of course couldn't wait to see the tigers.
He kept copying what the tiger was doing,
crawling like the tiger,
wagging his tail like the tiger,
it was so cute!

Craft time!Thankfully Chris was able to help out with all these crafts
because of course Sonja wanted to eat right in the middle of them.
Drake loved painting the pumpkins, but it took him a minute to warm up to carving them.
He was a little weirded out by the inside of the pumpkin,
but after a few minutes he was loving putting his hand in there and getting the seeds out.
He started pretending he was a crane grabbing the seeds and dumping them in the garbage.

We are going trick or treating at Chris's school on Monday
so I am sure I will have more pics of that too.
Happy Halloween!

Visitors so far...

We have been so lucky to have many visitors come out to see Baby Sonja!
So far my parents and my sister and her daughter have been out here.
Next we have Chris's parents, then his sibling, and then one of my best friends.
We are so blessed to have such loving and supportive families.
Here are some pics of the visitors we have had so far.
Thank you so much for all your help!
We love you!
My dad with Drake.
Drake would not leave my dad alone while he was here.
They definitely were little buddies and had so much fun together.

My mom with Baby Sonja.
(who is named after her mom)
My mom came out for 3 weeks which meant so much to us.

Teisa and Emie also came out to help me adjust to two kids.
Drake and Emie had so much fun together and
Teisa and I had fun spending some much needed sisterly time together.

They just love each other so much!

Teisa was nice enough to paint my kids nails.
Well, it started with just Sonja's,
but Drake had to get in on the action too!
Isn't she perfect?

Drake Meets Sonja

This was Drake's first time holding Sonja. It is a bit long, but Drake is pretty funny (listen closely!).

Baby Sonja

Here are some more pics of Baby Sonja for our families.
Sorry I have been slacking on posting pics, I will try to do better.
She is amazing!
She is a pretty calm baby (at least so far),
she sleeps alot, eats pretty well and handles the loudness of Drake really well.
More pics of her and some of Drake will come soon!

She's Here!!!

Sonja Leilani Anderson
Born October 7, 2011 at 915am
8lbs 1.4oz 20.5in

Drake has been a sweetheart for the few minutes he has been around Sonja. His ability to be gentle and sweet with her when he is rough and tough with everything else is amazing. And, Drake surprisingly understands a good amount of whats going on with the new baby. He told us Sonja needs to come sleep in her crib in his room. He also said that she is gonna be a princess when she grows up, a tiny princess like on Super Why. Hopefully his good big brother instincts continue this way for a little while.
