Caroline two-steps!

Caroline took two steps today completely unassisted!! We have three witnesses! She'll be 9 months on the 2nd of November! I had to document the momentous occasion with a post today. I could not post without a picture. This is Caroline last week after church. She likes to talk to her reflection in the fireplace glass.

Sweet baby girl!

Here is Caroline in her busy bee costume with Aunt Becky. She doesn't seem to sure about Aunt Becky's hat! Thanks to Baldwin Church of Christ for a fun night.
(I had my first s'mores of the Fall season!!!)
I will post more Halloween pictures next week!

Our friends, Adam and Julie, invited everyone over for a cookout at their new house. We had so much fun! Caroline is really into dancing to music and she can even keep a pretty good beat! She really gets going bending her knees, I've even watched her jump in the air!
I only have these pictures of Aunt Becky and Uncle Travis' nieces and nephew! The babies were not being very cooperative during the picture taking time. I think Caroline caused trouble by taking Lakyn's fun toy (in the top picture we have evidence that Caroline waited until Lakyn looked away and then moved in on the toy!) We're working on sharing.

Caroline still enjoys standing on her own. I can hardly believe she will be 9 months old next week! Here she is in her sailor outfit Grandma Tracy got her. Her feet are on the bigger side and I can't find shoes that will not leave marks on her poor feet. My friend Amy let me borrow these neat socks that look like shoes! So clever!

Caroline is also making the funniest smile lately! She squints her eyes, wrinkles her nose and smiles the biggest smile ever! She knows that it gets Grammy, Mommy and Daddy to laugh every time. It's really hard to catch on camera. Here's the closest I have so far!

Our little pumpkin

Am I small or is this pumpkin big?!

My friend, Aly, told me all about her adventure to the pumpkin patch, so I made mama and dada take me! We had fun posing for our family picture and I found a little pumpkin just my size. We finished off our trip with a hay ride around the patch. Next year I will be running through the patch!

Big girl...

So many mini-milestones (say that three times fast!) Last weekend we put in her big girl carseat which is huge, but more importantly very safe, comfy, and has a girly pattern. We also finally purchased a forward facing stroller which Caroline loves. (Thanks, Tara and Bailey, for your advice!) We put sunglasses on her for our first trip in the new stroller and after a few minutes Thomas noticed she somehow pushed them up on top of her head and was snoozing. She continues to be a super fast crawler and says "ma ma," "da da," and "bye bye." Aly Claire is giving her lessons on how to put the words together to make a sentence, but right now Caroline is just enjoying screeching at the top of her lungs to get her message neighboring counties. It's funny and cute at home, not so much in church or any other public place. It literally makes my ears ring. I am cherishing each second I spend with her (even when she dramatically falls to the floor crying! Is it mean to want to get that on videotape? :-) ) We love squeezing her and kissing those chubby cheeks!!!!
