Just a few pre- Christmas pics that I had to share :)
Funny faces in mirror part 2! He loves mimicking faces!

Alright, starting Christmas eve at Zielkes! We had so much fun with family-food, games, and the kids running wild! Micah especially enjoyed Dale's fish tank!

Goodnight kisses :)
Christmas Day-goofing around with great Gramps!
Micah is his little buddy
Just woke up from his nap (excuse the no pants thing!) to open presents

Loved this toy! However, it belongs to cousin Gabe...
Matt, exhausted after presents!
Micah really started to get the hang of opening gifts.
Thanks to all the people who got Micah balls...
Double trouble hit Grammy Tami's tupperware cupboard!

It was a great couple days of celebration. Even the 23rd we had my sister's b-day party, and then left there to have the Maier-Bergman Christmas! It has been so good to be with family.

And the excietment keeps building...we are going on a cruise to the Bahamas next week! Very excited. We will post pics when we get back :)

Maier Christmas

I should have taken more pictures! Last Saturday was our annual Maier family Christmas. Micah and Teague had a great time, mainly wanting to play with each other's toys and run amuck. Poor Finn was so sick though. She really toughed it out for us!
The beloved Elmo that was fought over (belongs to Teague)
My silly boys!
Mama Maier and Lissa prepared a couple holiday piano pieces for us. Micah tried to join in.
Tonight-just a little mirror fun after brushing his teeth for bed!

Wow, I can't beleive it has been a month since I've posted! Here are some pictures to capture some key moments...

The tech-y side of our boy!
Micah had an incident one Sunday afternoon-he wanted to play in the tub, and before we knew it, we found him with a brand new bottle of baby wash, which he somehow opened and poured all over himself!

Micah has a brand new big boy bed! Now, he hasn't slept on it yet, but we will work on that soon. Right now the cats think it's theirs!

Trying out the new bed

LAst Saturday we watched Teague and Finley for a few hours. This is a shot of them when we put in the Elmo DVD...Teague saw it in our video cabinet, and we know we wouldn't here the end of it until it was watched...

Car gazing out the window

Brotherly love

This is how Micah normally plays in his room...everything must come out of the changing table!

TA DA! Matt has graduated the MAster's program! His diploma came in the mail today!!!

This morning we went to cut down our Christmas tree. Micah rode in the tree cart on the way out!

This is our tree!

Kramer's first Christmas...

Micah went on and on about all the "balls" on the tree.

Oh yeah, they love Christmas!

Halloween week!

A little slow on posting about Halloween...but here it is! On Monday I took Micah into Matt's classroom for some "Fall Centers" (they don't let the kids dress up, but they have a fun day with activities and they go from room to room.)
In Matt's room they read 16 Pumpkins and Micah liked to pretend he was the student and was sitting at the tables. And yes, I dressed him in his outfit, a tease to the students I'm sure!
Later Matt's students had a break and came to the room and Mr. Maier read The Chocolate Touch (with voices and everything!). We were trying to leave, hence Micah's coat, but had to sit on Daddy's lap while reading a story! He is so into books right now!
Monday night we decided to trick-or-treat in my parent's neighborhood. This was right before hitting the streets!
Micah loved the houses he could dig and pick his own candy.
Going up to doors and getting candy. I think he even told this lady that a cow says "boo"
Took a break to go down the slide at the tots park!

Handing me his "punke"-it was getting way too heavy for him. Also Matt had to carry him part of the way because he was going too slow...
Tuesday when I picked Micah up from my mom's, he was out walking the dog! How cute!
Wednesday was a sick day. Not sure what Micah had, but there was a fever and a cough involved.
But here is Thursday, and he is looking his crazy self again!
Friday night we went to my parent's for a birthday dinner for my dad. Jenn, Josh, and Gabe were there, and Jess too. It was cute to see the boys together again!
Busy week! We also got news from the Doctor on Friday and we have medical clearance to start trying for a baby again! Very excited about that news. Please be praying for us!

Fall Family Fun Fair

Wednesday night was Fall Family Fun Fair at our church. Micah played games to get candy, which he sees our pumpkin on the counter with candy and is always whining for some.

The Laughing Cow!

Don't they look excited??

He can't keep his hands to himself-always messing with something!

One of the games he enjoyed!

Also good news. We got the result of my blood draw this week and my HCG is 6, so it means no more blood draws! Now I have a Dr appointment to discuss where to go from here next Friday, so hopefully it will be good news!

Apple picking at Stovers

Last Saturday we went to Stovers to go apple picking! Micah had fun identifying all the punke (pumpkins) and all the balls (apples). He even saw some kitties and took a hayride!

He even put them in the bag after he picked them!


Later that day at home he was helping Opa with the shed....

Monday night I came home from BSF to this....

Matt left him with his milk on the couch for a few minutes to check something on the computer, and he fell asleep! He must have been really tired!

Just some fun stuff he has been doing the past few weeks- he can take a piece of trash to the garbage when we ask, and now he can put dirty clothes in the laundry basket. Today I finished putting away the clean laundry, and he picked up the dirty laundry in the corner and put it in the basket :) He is such a big helper!
