There isn't much I can say about the little one this time because he hasn't changed much. He still can't really talk too much. He can say little things like "more", "baby", and "ma". He can also say a few words in Chinese but he cannot put words into phrases or sentences. He has learned how to do the blow kiss and he always will associate his baby bag with bye-bye. He loves to watch Barney. Every morning when he wakes up, he'll usually watch Barney for a while. We have over 5 different Barney tapes at home and sometimes, Michael and I get some of those Barney songs stuck in our heads. He seems to get along with his cousins pretty well. One thing that he loves to do when Erik (my youngest nephew) is around is go over to him and kiss him on the cheeks. Then if Erik is in his car seat, Nicholas will start rocking the car seat. He seems to really like babies that are smaller than him. It was the same when Kayla (May's daughter) was over. I have been shopping around a lot since it is starting to get cold. He needed a new wardrobe. Things that would keep him warm over the winter. I found some really cute clothes for a very good price. Michael also got him new shoes and they look really cute on him. Lately, he has been a bit fussy but we don't know why. I am guessing that it might be another tooth coming in. Oh, yeah, by the way, he has five teeth now: two on the bottom center and three on the top. My father jokes around about those teeth, saying that he look cuter now when he smiles because he has some teeth.

Mike and I are doing fine now. For a while there, I had a sinus problem or something like that and I had headaches, backaches, neck aches, stomachaches, and my eyes were very heavy. I went to the doctor and she gave me some medication for them and also, I have to attend physical therapy for six weeks. Michael has been getting headaches on and off. I guess it must be the weird weather. We are planning to go take a Christmas picture sometime within the next few weeks because we want to get them out before everyone else starts rushing in for the holiday season. One of my younger sisters (Karen) was going to get married at the end of this month or beginning of next month but the wedding has now been postponed due to a death in her finance's family. I think the wedding will now be held during the beginning of next year. And guess who's going to be the little flower boy? Yep, Nicholas! I have to find him a tuxedo for the wedding and I am still trying to figure out if renting one would be cheaper than buying one since he would probably only wear it once.

We do not plan on taking him trick-or-treating. (At least, I don't think so because if we are, he doesn't have a custom yet.) I think it's better for him to stay in that night. We will see how he's going to handle all those kids coming over to the house for Halloween. Maybe afterwards, I will write to tell you guys about his first Halloween experience. (The one last year didn't count because he was still too small).

Well, that's about all I have to say about this month. Maybe next month there will be more interesting things to write about and he will have more teeth. Like I said, I might write after his experience with Halloween right afterwards, but we'll have to see. Until next time, good health to you all (especially with this cold weather)!
