Progress of the bathroom renovation: getting all the outlets and light switches in place. (It looks so big when it is wide open.)
Coloring with Bro while the dads work.
Our first attempt at finger painting. More like, paint eating and butt painting.
Getting that 20 week ultrasound! Tuco (that's the baby) is perfect as can be seen and has a gender!
Libby Mill Library
Our first trip to the new library. And now our favorite rainy day activity.
One of them appreciates fall (or just laying down) more than the other.
Libby Mill Library
Making a habit of this library thing and dressing smart for the occasion. (Don't be distracted by the missing sock, it's the blazer that counts.)
Celebrating Molly and Kha's baby girl-to-be with some serious cotton candy.
A visit from Gramps means a new puppet!
Grandma & Grandpa Smith's
Playing "name that facial feature" with Great Grandma Zena.
Surprisingly, plenty of beets still made it into her mouth.
Holy cannoli, we all survived one year! This little chunk is the sweetest, happiest, best (most of the time) part of our days!
All the gingko leaves.
We are now at the point where I put something away that she wants and she cries and tries to get it back herself. In this case I'm talking about crayons that she prefers to eat instead of color with.
Cousins starting a band. With one giant xylophone.
Practicing drinking milk from a sippy cup. I don't think she got as much in her mouth this time.
Taking care of all six of her chompers.
Birthday party preparations: the obligatory monthly photos and then some. Andy's response, "We can stop doing those now, right?"
Crazy sunset made for crazy colors!
More birthday party prep! Molly, the cake genius makes this masterpiece.
Come Dressed as Your Favorite Sea Creature Birthday Party was a success! At least one person loved the cake and three people dressed as sharks. (Mabel being one of them.)
Story time with Kiki.
The Japanese Maple makes the most fiery red leaves!
Bath time for all the boogers!
Getting ready to say goodbye from our quick mini Roller reunion. Nothing like refueling with an old friend, even if it is for less than 24 hours.
Dinner at the station with the other firefighters and their families. Leena got to fully enjoy Thanksgiving and all it has to offer this year.
Ducky and Bunker's
Thanksgiving Round 2. More turkey and plenty of toys.
Early Olympic training in progress.
I wish this kid liked to wear hats (or barrettes or headbands) more. This is the millisecond of half-wear that we caught for Tim, the giver of the hat when LB was born.
The first of about thirty books to end up on the floor. To her credit, she does look at them at least a little bit before getting the next one.
