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:

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 found the headlamp to be alot of fun.

Fingerpainting is fun!

Nicky's 60th!

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