Now that our Christmas cards are out, I can post these. I have been waiting because I didn’t want anyone to know that we took these. The timer on my camera worked pretty well and we really did have a great time taking these pictures.

A couple of weekends ago we took Guyon to ride his first train. We spent the morning visiting the Railroad Museum of Pennsylvania and then rode the Strasburg Railroad in the afternoon.

Sean was super excited for this visit because Engine 460 was making its debut after being restored over a six year period of time. In honor of its debut, the Pennsylvania Heritage unit was also visiting and we were able to get up close and personal with an engine that runs on the rails today. It was really cool!

It also happened to be right before Veteran’s Day. In the aisle ways around the trains, there were displays of war memorabilia and people dressed in period clothing. It was a neat display. After the museum, it was off to ride the train.

Guyon loved it! So did his daddy and his grandpa! I am sure we will do many more of these in the future!

We got Guyon his first wooden train too while we were visiting. He seems to really like to play with it.

How Big Are You?
About 22 pounds and 28 inches long. These are just estimations.

What’s Your Temperament?
Pretty chill unless you have an ear infection, you are teething, or not feeling great. You also let us know when you are bored. You will whine just so that we move you to a different part of the house or give you new toys to play with on the floor. You love sitting where you can see everything going on in the room.

What Are You Eating?
This month we transitioned to eating 3 meals a day and more solid foods. You may make a face the first time you taste it but you do eat like a champ.

What Are you Sporting?
12 month clothes all the time. You do have a couple of 18 month things that you wear too.

How Are You Sleeping?
This was a continuation of last month. It was a little rough again with another ear infection but you seem to be transitioning out of not waking up so much.

Guyon’s daycare hosted a Trunk or Treat on Friday, a week ago. We were super excited about it since this is his 1st Halloween and also because Sean hasn’t ever really handed out candy before. His mom and dad’s house never had Trick or Treaters so it was fun for everyone.

We decorated the truck like a train with a smoke stack and tracks under the tires and a cross hatch sign but completely forgot to take pictures of the truck. Our little Engineer was pretty cute though!
