On Oct. 7, Emerson turned 10 months. She is pulling up and testing her balance but still no indication that she will be walking any time soon. I think she likes being carried better.
What's a birthday party without a playground theme and poop in the sandbox?
I was also super busy with Junior League obligations in anticipation of the League's Shopping Spree! I had to makes tons of samples for the cookbook table at Shopping Spree! But, it gave a great opportunity for Ella to help us do some of the cooking . . .
Just because she's making Mommy and Daddy wine slushies doesn't mean she isn't cooking?
An October isn't complete without a trip to Hillridge Farms for a hayride, pumpkin picking and tons of other activities. With all the fun activities, Ella's favorite thing to do was apparently the swings. We did manage to peel her away for some other fun, including Mommy's first time down the huge slide!
We ran into our friends the Smiths. Ella drove the school bus for Ally and Ashley.
We also had to find time to squeeze in a Fall festival at daycare. Al and I both missed the fun event, but luckily the teachers captured a few pictures of all the fun we missed.
And last but not least, we finished off the month with some trick-or-treating in our new neighborhood. Ella definitely understood it much more this year around, but she got some candy and decided it was time to go home and hand out candy instead. How adorable are they?
Until next time . . .
