October Catch Up

October was a busy but fun month for us - at the beginning of the month, we went to Applefest with Tata, Grandpa Nick and the Duker's. The following weekend, Aunt Sa watched Kira while we celebrated our anniversary and had a garage sale. Then it was pumpkin picking with Melody and Amanda and celebrating Jeff's birthday (along with Brooks and Rose (happy day!). Finally, we went to a halloween party last weekend at Sharon & JP's. What a great month! We are all doing well - Kira amuses us every day and exhausts us as she pushes every boundary she can find. She has found some "fun" ways to express herself and is full of challanges but we love every minute of it.

Here are some pictures to enjoy:

Climbing the activity center

It was pretty high - she was scared to go to the bridge when she got to the top but she did it!

Silly Kira

Some silly pictures of our darlin'

Kira likes to pretend the space under her high chair is a "car" - she has a spot for her keys, a spot for her purse, etc. Tonight, we brought in the "steering wheel" that came on her new stroller.

Kira with our "red" project.

Kira found the headlamp to be alot of fun.

Checking daddy for nuggets.

Fingerpainting is fun!

Nicky's 60th!

We ended September with a fun weekend at Tata's to celebrate Grandpa Nick's 60th Birthday.

The Terrible Two's !!!

Well it's been a while since our last post, Things have been pretty busy around here. Kira is growing by leaps and bounds, Physically and Mentally! Probably too fast for us..Everything is always a question followed by "OHH MAN"! She started gymnastics a couple of weeks ago on Saturday's and she loves it. Potty traing is going pretty well although "number 2" is a challege..Vic and I are doing well, she's very happy now that she is not a "Golf Widow" anymore! Until next year lol..

Already gettin some from Daniel Duker!

She's a very good helper when she's in the mood

Her princess slippers that go everywhere with her including bed
She decided to dress up my co-worker Don with her headband and her earrings
In full effect!

This one's for you Aunt Danielle and Uncle Rudy.. Until next time..............................

Kira update & first mani/pedi

Kira had her 2 yr check up recently and is currently 35 inches tall and almost 28 lbs. She is talking up a storm, developing the 2 yr old attitude and that sense of adventure that is just...scary.

Daddy gave Kira her first mani/pedi this weekend - blue nail polish to match her eyes.

Be sure to keep scrolling down for other fun things we did in July and so far this month!
