Nicky and Sophia

Nick and Sophia are only 2 months apart  - Nicky turns 1 year old November 22nd!  It has been fun getting together with our great friends Luke and Christine over the last year and watching these two grow up together.  This last weekend they actually played together a little, which was a first.  And then they were good babies and went to sleep so the adults could have fun for the rest of the evening :)

Officially Walking!

Sophia probably officially started walking about a week ago.  I actually really don't know when it is "official", but now she can go from sitting to standing on her own and is walking much longer distances than before.  We are such proud parents!  She is still wobbly though and is much faster at crawling than walking. :)

p.s. I am aware that I need to get better at taking videos. :)

Loving Swinging

Our sweet Sophia got to swing in the backyard for the first time last weekend!  Why was it the first time, I don't know?  But she loved it!

Happy Halloween!!

This was technically Sophia's second Halloween, but last year she was only 6 weeks old!  This year we dressed her up as a pumpkin and she looked just precious.  Our neighbors had a block party for everyone which is where we spent most of our time on Halloween night.  Sophia had fun checking out all of the big kids in costumes and riding around in her wagon.

Pumpkins at the Arboretum!

We decided to go take pictures at the Arboretum pumpkin patch again this year.  I love looking at the display they have, and walking around to enjoy everything.  This year we didn't really get to do that because Sophia still takes a morning nap, so after breakfast we had to pack up as quickly as possible, drive down to White Rock area which for us is 35 minutes and then park and unload, take pictures, and by that point it was time to head back.  I was willing to let her miss her morning nap, but we also had to feed her lunch pretty soon (the joys of staying on a baby's schedule!).  I'm just glad we got to do it at all and next year maybe we can spend more time.  We went last year when Sophia was just one month old, and she slept the entire time, see below:

Here are some of the pictures we got this year!  She was tired at first but then perked up and started having fun in the pumpkins :)

Excited to be in the house of pumpkins!
"This is crazy, why am I sitting on pumpkins?!"
Apparently being held is not exciting :)

Sophia and her stash of pumpkins

Sophia's nanny Sandra did a pumpkin craft with the kids and helped Sophia make a really cute pumpkin.  Sophia loves it!  Also the other day at the pumpkin patch we bought her several pumpkins since she liked the little ones so much.  I think she thinks they are balls.  Here are a few pictures of her with all of her pumpkins.



Pumpkin Patch!

This weekend we went to the pumpkin patch in Frisco with my sister, Warren, Conor and Juliana.  We got some great pictures of the kids together.  Hopefully we can make it a yearly tradition, I love pumpkin pictures!

yum, yum..

It is so much fun getting these two together :)

Such happy girls!

Conor thinks he is too old for pumpkin patch pictures, ha!

A few more birthday pictures
