Let it Snow!

I'm 8 months old...
... and I'm ready for the snow!

Some other photos of me from this month

I'm 8 months old today and I'm ready for some snow! I'm off to Colorado with my family to celebrate my first Thanksgiving. Even though there is no sign of any teeth coming in, I will still be eating my share of turkey and sweet potatoes. While I'm away, I will be practicing my crawling. I'm not there yet, but I like to roll around and scoot on my butt to get to my toys. I also can get on all fours and rock back and forth. My mommy and daddy better watch out because I will be on the move in no time. I'm still a chatter box and if you aren't paying any attention to me, I'll let you know it... as if I don't get enough attention already. Mommy loves that I can entertain myself for longer periods of time so she can get stuff done around the house. But I make sure she doesn't spend too much time away from me in another room. I love to show off my bouncing skills in my Exersaucer and I'm curious about all noises (big and small)... I also like creating them too. The most fun is at night when I get to climb all over my daddy and grab his beard with my death grip. He makes me smile with his funny expressions and the sounds he makes! Well, I sure hope there will be some white stuff on the ground for me to explore this weekend. I know it will be chilly, but I'm prepared since my crazy parents like to keep the windows opened year around... mommy finally turned on the heater today!

Thanks for checking in on me and I wish everyone a Happy Thanksgiving!

Playdate with Kyra

Playdate with Kyra

Last week my mommy and I drove up to Culver City to hang out with Kyra and her mommy, Jackie. We walked across the street to the mall and had a yummy lunch. Then we went back to Kyra's house to play with all her toys. She wasn't too sure about me playing with them, but I don't blame her... they were lots of fun! It was a great day and next time we get together we will be all dressed up in pretty dresses for my Uncle Matt and Auntie Lizzy's 30th Birthday Celebration!

Halloween Night

We said so long to October with many fun and festive events and are continuing the fall celebrations into November. Instead of music class today, we had a potluck party. And once again, Natasha got to sport her pumpkin tutu. As for the Halloween events, our Babies 2010 Halloween party was last Thursday. It was so much fun and it was great seeing all the cute babies in their costumes. We managed to get a few pictures of the babies together, but we had to act fast! On Friday, after my workout with Stroller Strides we did stroller to stroller trick or treating with all the kids. Unfortunately, Natasha was still napping so she missed out on that, but woke up in time for another group photo. It was a little bit easier to get these kids together because they are all a tad bit older than Natasha. Saturday, we had a break from the Halloween costumes and dressed up in our UCLA gear for tailgating and the game. We won't discuss the outcome of the game, but I am glad that USC lost too. Sunday was Halloween and if you have ever been to our neighborhood you know there are lots of kids around. Natasha had fun helping pass out candy to all the trick or treaters. I think she thought it was a game since we were constantly opening and closing the door. From 6pm to 8pm we passed out 250 pieces of candy (give or take, since I may have indulged a bit this week). The streets were so packed with kids and parents, that you had to be very careful driving around. It was a great night and next year we plan on taking Natasha trick or treating!

We hope you all had a great Halloween too!
