It's October and that means pumpkins! Antonio visited the pumpkin patch with his cousins this weekend! It was so fun and there was so much to do and see.

The only thing better than pumpkins are his big boy cousins. He loves to see them and be like was fun day!

After all that fun, you just have to find a place to sit...sometimes a pumpkin is the best.

Happy Bir-dir-day Grandpapa

Antonio wanted to send Grandpapa an e-card video for his 'bir-dir-day' and as I asked him to say Happy Birthday Grandpa, he ended it each time with "CAKE!" - obviously he has made the connection, birthdays=cake! Funny kid.

Lucky for him it does mean cake! Grandpapa shared his cake and then they both had a sugar high!

So Sad to be Sick

Antonio is sick. I got sick on vacation, came home and now poor Antonio and Jeff are sick. And Antonio is miserable. He is not a happy boy. But, as Laurie always said, sick days are for TV and eating ice cream...though right now he won't eat anything, the Wonder Pets still seem to make him calm. Not happy, just calm.

Two years ago when Antonio was born, his cousin Preston called him Baby No-No, and at the time Preston was two. Now that Antonio is two and learning to talk himself, he is also calling himself Oh-No-No. Sometimes it is A-No-No but lately it is Oh-No-No.

Antonio in Palm Springs, Part 1

Antonio is in Palm Springs with the Barges this week. He's having so much fun swimming, painting, playing, swimming, being spoiled by Grandmama and Grandpapa. Really, it doesn't get better than this.

Here are just a small sample of the pictures from the week so far. Internet access is very spotty, and these are from the only batch Deb could send out. I'm sure there will be more to follow.

Oh, and in other words, Mommy and Daddy officially need to start watching their mouths. Since Antonio repeats pretty much everything we say, he said his first cuss word on the drive over. It was cute. Now Deb needs to stop talking like a sailor.

UPDATE! Happy Birthday Mamma!

Today is Mamma's birthday and as her special present she came to see Antonio! They had a wonderful visit but just as exciting, Mamma met Potsie!Now we've got some more pictures from Mamma's birthday visit. From reading to Antonio to opening gifts with Havana, Mamma did it all. We think she had a good time. We know Antonio did.

Antonio is counting the days until Mamma can make another visit to his new California home.
