Evelyn - 11 months

Little Evie has exploded again in the last month! [September 20-October 20]

The biggest change is Evie's movement, standing, walking, etc. Here are a few pics.

Oh yeah, and climbing stairs. (ahhhhhh)
No, she didn't fall off....
September 23 -- cruising. We thought we saw this before at the end of August, but this is true cruising around furniture (like the length of the couch).

September 25 - she walked behind our little push walker toy, a sweet gift from my friend Janice for Ella, way back when.

September 25 - found her with the kitchen drawer open and tupperware all over the floor after being upstairs for 4 minutes putting Ella down for a nap...oh boy!

September 29 - Living Treasures with our friends Landon & Calleigh.
October 5 - saying "Momma"!!!!

October 5 - Pediatrician appointment to check weight. She has gained 5 ounces in 5 weeks - the doctor is pleased with this - but says if she doesn't start eating finger foods by one year we will need occupational therapy. -- This Momma likes a challenge -- I'm on it!

October 10 - 7th tooth coming in! (top right, her right).
October 18 -  General cuteness. My two girls wearing my dresses from when I was their age. My mom strikes again!

October 19 - 8th tooth! (top left)
October 20 - Meet cousins Debbie & Ibrahim

Love this sweet little girl - so blessed by my great Father!

Peek-a-boo - a new favorite.

Fabulous Fall Fun!

If you know me - you know I LOVE fall! Pumpkin. Cider. Leaves. Apples. Apple Pie!!! Ahh. I can hardly handle it!

In my experience as a mother, (almost) anything you love is 10x better when you get to share it with your own little pumpkins! This fall has been so fun -- and warm! Thank you Lord for your blessings.

Here are a few snapshots of our fun!

Fall Walk. Here we are playing in the leaves of our favorite tree by our house. 

Thanks, Gram, for my pumpkin coat! Ella just ran around laughing and screeching "Ebee pumpkin!!"

Yeck's Family Farm - A new local treasure found this year. We went 4 times! 

Corn Maze!

small group friends! 

Oh goodness, could I be any more blessed? 

Evie's first Halloween. 
Yes, she hated it. 

Sleeping Beauty. This was what she wore to small group the week of Halloween. 

about to start Trick-or-Treating. 

I so happy I got her to wear this Sully costume. She has recently been watching Monsters, Inc (Thanks Yaya for the gift) and I went out on Halloween to use a coupon for a birthday gift - and saw this 75% off -- so snatched it up. Yippee for warm costumes!

She got the hang of it. Eventually. 

This house has, no joke, 20 blow up things in the yard. Every time we drove by in October we would stop and roll down the window to let her look.
