While I do like living in a mostly shaded yard bordered by trees, it turns into a pretty big mess of leaves in the fall! Blake bought a leaf blower when we were in Iowa because we had a few big trees, and he uses it even more with this yard! Brooks got a little red rake from Ace and had a blast helping Daddy with the leaves!

Our little Keely Jane is now 6 months old! I can't believe how fast it has really gone with her! It seems like we just brought her back from the hospital like 2 months ago, but yet it's hard to remember life without her around!
Keely loves to smile. She is such a happy baby! She loves to laugh and smile at (most) anyone who will pay attention to her! She is especially all smiles for her Daddy when he comes home from work.
Keely also learned to roll over from her back to her tummy probably a couple months ago already. However, she just figured out how to roll back to her back from her tummy last night! She used to just lay on the floor on her tummy and scream until someone would help her. She likes being on her tummy, but just not for too long! (This is completely opposite of Brooks. He never rolled from his back to his tummy until he was old enough to crawl, but he rolled from his tummy to his back probably around 3 months!)
Keely also loves to be outside. We have had a great fall so far, and she has enjoyed it along with the rest of us! She likes to watch Brooks run around with Cheyenne, and she gets super excited if Cheyenne comes close to her. I think we'll have 2 kids who love their dog!
Keely also loves her exersaucer at this age. It has been so great for me to have a place to put her where she is confined and can be eye level with Brooks. He actually does a great job 'watching' her for me while I shower real quick or start some laundry downstairs. He'll hand her toys and talk to her or sing to her to keep her entertained. She loves it!
We have started Keely on rice cereal for supper. She has not done as well with it as Brooks did, so I'm struggling to keep with it! (It doesn't make it any easier when I have to handle both kids eating, and myself during meals...I usually end up eating a cold plate of food! oh well, it'll get easier someday...maybe!)
It has helped that she can sit in her high chair during meals and at least be able to be up with us instead of on the floor or on my lap!

Again this year we went to Henderson to go Trick or Treating with Brooks' cousins, Lane and Katy. Brooks didn't seem to have as much fun with it all this year as he did last year. He has been really clingy to me lately and just whinier. He acts like he is teething or something, but he has all of his teeth, so I'm not sure what the deal is! We had a little trouble getting Brooks to put on his costume this year. He said for the last month that he wanted to be a lion again until about 2 days before Halloween, then he changed his mind and was completely against the lion. Luckily my mom had a puppy costume that he agreed to wear. It was a little small, but it still fit. He was excited to look like Grandma Jost's dog Chilie. Keely got to dress up as a cow thanks to a costume I borrowed from Cody. She was so cute!
