Sarah Loves her Bouncer

I thought this was so funny. She had already been doing it for a while before I got the camera out. So funny!

Scooting is on the horizon!

In the last week or two, Sarah has really started trying to figure out how to scoot. She gets frustrated when something is just barely out of reach. She has started using this method where she leans all the way to one side and pushes with her feet while reaching with her arms and then leans to the other side and does the same thing. It's slow going, but she does make progress! I've noticed in the last day or two that she is starting to get her knees underneath her from time to time. Before we know it, she's going to figure it out!

This is one of those videos that really only family will probably like. It's on the boring and long side of things. But I noticed that she was moving towards the blocks James had been playing with, so I ran and grabbed the camera as quickly as I could. I just caught the tail end of it on the video. Hopefully you can get the idea of what she does.

Crazy, crazy! Her older brother was just about this age when he figured out the army crawl. Maybe Sarah is more like him than we thought!

Still Halloween?

I know, I know, next week is Thanksgiving. I just couldn't move on to the next holiday before sharing our pumpkin carving adventures with you all. On the Friday before Halloween, Natalie and her roommate came over and we had a good time carving our pumpkins.

We all dove right into the gross pumpkin guts, except for James. James needed a bit more...coaxing.

Aren't we terrible parents for posting that video online? I know. I just couldn't help it. He warmed up to the idea after that.



And here are the pumpkins!


Paul and I took our inspiration from Becca and Katie's halloween costumes, and went with a Mario theme. This was the first time we tried anything fancy together. I did the drawing, and Paul did the cutting. :)


Ok, now we can move on to Thanksgiving!

There was a farmer, had a pig...

...and Sarah was her name-o?

You know, it's really hard to get good pictures of a toddler and a baby at the same time. Exceedingly hard. Here are the best pictures we got before we went to our ward's trunk-or-treat last Saturday.




Sarah made a really cute pig. And she even kept the nose on the whole time because she figured out that she could suck on the bottom of it. :) James liked dressing up like a farmer, mostly because of the cowboy hat.

Maybe we'll get better Halloween pictures next year...
