Dress Up Part 2

The snow has stayed in the mountains so far, but Leinna's ready with her new boots. She was so excited to put them on and stomped all over the house.

She also found it quite entertaining this weekend to put her socks on her hands and try to pick up her toys. I thought for sure she was going to get frustrated, but nope- she just kept trying and would laugh at herself when she couldn't do it.

While I was brushing my teeth, I told Leinna to go get her shoes so we could go to church. When I came out of the bathroom she was stomping around in my walking shoe. Too funny...

She also has a new game of putting my hat on and walking around the house. I don't know how she can see where she's going...
but she comes running (no joke) around the corner of the kitchen into the living-room and pulls the hat off with a look of - ha,ha... I scared you!

Such a silly girl ...

15 months & 15 weeks

October 6th marked 15 months of life for Leinna!

I thought the "independent stage" wasn't suppose to start until age 2, but we definitely have 'little miss thang' ruling the house right now. I love the picture above - looks like she's got so much attitude! We are definitely experiencing some 'terrible two' symptoms. I love it when Leif looks at me and says, "What's wrong with her?" HA, HA, HA!!! Poor Leif has very little experience with young children. I usually reply with, she's testing us to see if she can get her way everytime - so when she throws herself on the floor and screams because she didn't get her way - walk away and don't give her any attention. Leif tells me he's glad I know what I'm doing. HA, HA - again -- if only I did know what I'm doing.

More times than not though we have our happy, smiley girl!

Her 15 month check-up went well. She's almost 25 pounds and 31 inches tall.
Yah, she's no small child that's for sure.

We also celebrated 15 weeks for "Nugget" on October 6th.
I'm already slacking on my photos for "Nugget" compared to my pregnancy with Leinna. I suppose it's due the fact that I'm so tired by the time Leinna goes to sleep - the last thing I want to do is take a picture. Fortunately, I snapped this one before going to work - a rare morning that we had some extra time :O)

Old Man Winter - Just around the corner
Finally - the weather is changing in our part of the world. We had some heavy frost on our deck this morning. While it was a sunny, beautiful day in Cordova, the sun did not hit our deck and we had the same level of frost when we got home. We know it's getting closer to winter when the direct sunlight doesn't hit the house anymore. :o( Although, I'm looking forward to Leinna playing in the snow. She loves being outside and I think she'll have fun playing in it.

Exploring With Dress-Up Clothes

Where do I even begin to tell this story... Papa was off to a training for work and Momma was taking a shower. As long as Momma leaves the door open, I'm happy to entertain myself until she's done. Today, I decided I would try her clothes on.

Momma laughed so hard when she saw that I put her shirt on by myself. I was a little upset that I couldn't get the shirt back off, but when I found the arm holes, I thought it was pretty fun to play dress-up!

I also like to pull open the shower curtain while Momma is in the shower. She's finally got smart and holds it closed with her toes until I find something else to amuse me. Anyways- it was fun wearing Momma's shirt this morning.

Momma also wanted me to share that "Nugget" is doing well. She's feeling good and getting a bigger tummy. When Momma asks me, "Where's Momma's Baby" - I'm so smart and point to her tummy. We head to Anchorage on Friday for a check-up for me and my "Nugget" (aka - Baby #2). Happy October 1st and have a wonderful week!
