Rain, rain.

Another rainy day here in Redmond. Leah and I are busy getting ready for her halloween party, and getting excited about Grandma Lauren's visit in a week from tomorrow!

great weekend with grandpa!

This past weekend, Leah's Grandpa Tim was in town. So so fun. We went for a walk at Grass Lawn, played some guitar, went out for dinner, went to Top Pot, and did lots of playing and giggling. This week we're getting ready for Leah's first Halloween Party!

catch up

We've had a pretty good week so far - lots of backward crawling (she's getting really quick) - and lots of snuggling at home. Leah (and mommy) got an early Christmas present from Grandma Lauren and Grandpa Mark - a maclaren volo stroller! It's super lightweight and great for little trips. We took a spin in it yesterday, and it was great.

big (girl) weeks.

These last couple of weeks have been huge for Leah. Sitting, rolling, swinging at the park... and this weekend was really huge. She went in her big girl carseat - which meant no more infant seat in her stroller, or infant seat at the restaurant - she rode in the shopping cart at Costco (and loved it!) and sat in the booth with us at the Ram last night with BFF Lisa. (We had a highchair too but she was having too much fun sitting in the booth.)

It's been rainy here the last few days, so we've been doing a lot of reading and snuggling. :)

Leah got a flu shot today - didn't cry, didn't wince. What a girl.

half birthday!!!

Today is Leah's first half birthday! We're going to celebrate by cuddling, going for a rainy walk to the park, and playing with her half-birthday drums.

Great great great day.

giving peas a chance.

We've had a great weekend so far. We went for a walk with daddy to the park yesterday, and Leah went on the swing for the first time! She loved it.

Today, Leah tried peas for the first time, even though I thought it was cruel and unusual - turns out I didn't pass down my veggie-angst to her. She loved them, probably even more than sweet potatoes.

Doctor doctor, give me the news... I've got a bad case of loving you.

Leah had her *gasp* 6 month checkup today. 6 months. She had some shots - didn't even flinch for the first two, and whined a little bit for the last one. She was too busy chewing on sophie the giraffe, which has become an overnight baby fave.

Her current stats are:
29" (the nurse couldn't figure out how to document "not on the growth curve, so she wrote 100% ++.)
16.0 lbs (50%)
17" head circumference (25%)

Time to get out the big girl carseat.

party animal.

We went to our friend Joel's FIRST birthday party today! Leah was sort of overwhelmed by all of the big kids, but eventually found some great toys to play with.

Leah is definitely getting some teeth in. I can't see them poking through yet, but I think I see them through the front of her gums.

We've had her icy-teethers in a constant cycle of mouth-->freezer-->mouth-->freezer-->mouth.

wowie weekend

We had a great weekend. Really great. We celebrated Luke's birthday on Friday at Ram Restaurant... Super yummy. On Saturday, we picked Grandma Dianne up from the airport, went pumpkin picking, went to Build-a-Bear, and PF Changs. Sunday we went to Luke's race (he got 3rd place, which was great!) and made pizza at home with Grandma.

Leah is also a big backward mover now. :)

A couple of great days.

Yesterday we had our playgroup at our house - we had brownies, strawberries, and twizzlers... Our guest was an infant massage specialist, so it was a spa day for the babies. Today is daddy's birthday! Leah gave him a water bottle for his bike rides.

We had a coffee date with Leah's friend Clara and her mommy Liz - it was a chatty morning for all of us girls.

And then, we found out that Leah is really cute. Well, we knew that already, but today she won us $50 for our Tiny Prints Christmas cards. Thanks Leah!

grandma sue!

Leah's Grandma Sue was in town on Tuesday-Wednesday... We went hiking at Coal Creek Park yesterday - it was so fun, and so nice to have her around. Leah got lots of cuddling. :)
