The Bread Monster

Caught in the act!
Hannah took complete advantage of my divided attention and snagged some bread while I was on the phone. By the time I found her bread was everywhere!

Hannah attempting to shove even more bread in her mouth as I take pictures!

A present only a mother could love... the chewed up bread Hannah was gagging on.

Potty training

We heard that potty training Hannah would be difficult.....
so we thought we'd practice with the dog!

11 months old today!

Can you believe it? 11 months old today! Hannah is getting so big so fast. As you can see above we even let her test drive her first car today. She did pretty good until she had a passenger...she just couldn't keep her hands on the wheel after that!

The latest fashions

"I've seen a lot of people around with shiny things in their I thought I'd try it with my macaroni noodle! How do I look?"

"My mom told me all the girls wear their hair in pigtails and I should hold still just a little bit longer.... The only place I have enough hair is on the back of my head and I'm really not sure how pigs will fit back there?"

Yeah Fall Harvest!

To celebrate the harvest we had a party! (Well thanks to Jenny and Danielle...I also think it may have been a great excuse to get together because Danny, Jamie, David and Lorelie were in town!)

Hannah and David loved pushing the chairs around together. It was so awesome to see him again. David is so close to walking! He stands steady on his own as everyone holds their breath to see if he will take that first step!

Hannah Joy is sitting up so good! It is just a matter of time before "The Hannah's" are chasing each other around!

Sam is working on the whole hand eye coordination thing. Here he had pacifier in hand, open mouth... he just had to figure out how to make his arm move exactly where he wanted it to go!

Sadie's friend Honey even came over to celebrate the harvest! They ran around for about 4 hours straight, the above picture is of one of their brief resting periods! We love having Honey exercise Sadie!

Enjoying the weather

The weather has been awesome! Cool days and even cooler nights! Hannah loves playing outside on her swingset. She enjoys her slide the most but will scream unless you let her go down head first....aaargh!

Happy Birthday to my Dad!

Happy Birthday John!
( So is it a wig? Or a fake beard? Either way Hannah didn't like it!)

Happy Birthday to my dad! We celebrated last night cause Mom has to work tonight. It was good practice for me because my birthday is coming up fast! I wasn't too thrilled with very much because it was past my bedtime by the time we got to cake and presents.

I did help dad open his cards. Grandma got a card that plays music so I sat on the table and danced to it while dad opened his cards from me, mom, Sadie, and Mystic.

Finally I helped them pop popcorn for the movie they were planning on watching without me! Can you believe it? That's ok though cause I was pretty tired!
Happy Birthday Dad!

Illinois photos

Here we are on the plane. Hannah wasn't too sure what to think at first.

Our flights were pretty empty so Hannah got her own seat most of the time! They say there are no rules when flying with children and I agree! Anything to keep her from screaming!

We arrived in Illinois and had a blast with family! Here one of Hannah's cousins is training her early to become a cheerleader. Hannah loved all of the chaos and children running around. I think it was the first time she could care less if I was around!

Here is John and Hannah's Uncle Jeff. I think the picture speaks for itself!

Here Hannah got to come face to face with goats! She loved all of the animals!

Here Hannah is playing with her Aunt Nancy. She is so much fun!

We spent a day at the pumpkin patch. Hannah loved the horses and playing in all of the pumpkins.

We also spent a day at the Brookfield Zoo. This is a rare photo of Hannah awake. She fell asleep after the dolphins and didn't wake up until we left!

Here Hannah has her first taste of a Portillo's Italian Beef Sandwich! Boy do we miss those!

Hannnah and Daddy

We carved pumpkin's with Hannah's cousin Jack. She wasn't very helpful though, while we were gutting the pumpkins she kept putting it all back in! New textures, tastes, and smells...always fun!

We had a great time in Illinois but are glad to be back home. It was an awesome time spent with all of our family and we loved it! We sure do miss all of you!

An adventure to the midwest

We just got back from visiting family in Illinois. I did so many different things and had so much fun. Mom and Dad had to go to work as soon as we got home, so it will be a couple of days before they can post more pictures. Boy it sure feels good to be home again!
