Just when you think your son can't get any cuter, you end up with photos like these:

We are entering the wild world of solid foods, and the results are a little hit and miss (more on that later):

Shayne has been having a ton-o-fun performing in "Forever Plaid"

Shayne volunteered Heather to make some of the props used in the show, and she ended up taking on the role of 'props mistress.' They even listed her as the props person in the show's program. Here is one of the record covers that Smudge uses during his monologue:

Heather's mom helped us with the huge project of making these arm bands for the Calypso number...

...and here's the finished product. Heather got my fruit hat from the person who threw Emily Seamons' baby shower:

This is an in-progress shot of making the gold records...

...and what they look like on stage:

In addition to Forever Plaid, Eclipse had a few shows in September. This is us after a concert at the Spanish Fork Arts Festival. October's shirt says, "I'm with the band." His face, on the other hand, says, "It's way past my bedtime."

The day after the concert in Spanish Fork, we did a fireside at the Assembly Hall on Temple Square, which was pretty darn cool:

Here's Toby with a couple of other kids from our ward:

And here he is watching a Bears game with his dad:

And, finally, a video of Toby frolicking with his dad's hat:

Apparently we caught October by surprise when we snapped this photo.
His pack-n-play has a bar that has little elephant heads hanging from it. It's a little creepy if you ask me, but he seems to enjoy it. They are velcroed on, so he reaches up until he can get a good hold and then...

...he rips off the severed, shrunken elephant head.

And that makes him happy.

Look at that cute little naked baby!

Kevin & Joni Huff (the same people that blessed all of our lives with Toby's awesome, powder blue suit) sent him this onesie when he was born.

We think he's the cutest baby in the whole ward.

If you've looked at our other posts, you'll know we're big fans of re-creating shots of October from when he was really little. Here's another example:
