ten months

Oh, Charlie. You are getting so big! Now that the crawling is perfected, he has already moved on to pulling himself up and has even started a little bit of cruising. This is all going way too fast. Please stay my baby for a bit longer!

happy thanksgiving

We spent Thanksgiving with Todd's family. It was an extra great day because it was the first time all of us were together on a holiday in quite a while.

Imani collected what everyone is thankful for. Mine was that Audrey is potty trained!

Time for dessert. Kieran was way too excited about the novelty pie.

Audrey stole Papa's attention after dinner for lots of book reading.

Charlie is a crawler! He has started moving on all fours in addition to the army crawl.

brief stop

Erinn and Kieran were in the area and came for a visit.

Even though she never wants to, we always make Erinn hold the baby. Look how happy he is to be with his aunt Erinn.

As always, uncle Kieran isn't afraid of any babies.

number of the day

I peeked in at Audrey during her class today. Instead of being at the table with all of the other children working on the day's craft, she was by herself cleaning up toys. I'm not sure if that has something to do with being the only girl in class or not. We only have her number painting to show off today.

smelly job

Audrey and Todd worked hard this morning raking and playing in the rest of the leaves in the yard. I wish I would have heard this myself, but Todd says that while raking Audrey said "something stinks - it smells like a skunk pooped out here." Hmmm.

Audrey and mama are at a campfire

The second session of Audrey's pre-preschool started today. Audrey headed straight for the baby dolls and didn't even care when I left.

thirty-five months

What a goofball. I had to bribe Audrey with a popsicle to let me take any pictures to mark her thirty-fifth month. She has been all about princesses, fairies, tutus, wings, pink and sparkles lately. I fought it for as long as I could and have lost the battle.

happy birthday, channy!

Channamom's birthday was last week and we took her out to lunch today.

Back home, Audrey models the poncho Channy made for her.

Audrey wasn't much help getting the yard ready for the cold, especially after she found this stick to play with.
