First Hair Cut

We took Autumn to get her hair trimmed. It was 5 inches long! Now it's about 4.5 inches long, when its stretched out at any rate. She was fine until the scissors came near her head. Then she let the whole world know how she felt about this new form of torture. She stood in my lap while I wore a cape and she wore a cape. We tried sitting her in my lap but that was worse. At least standing up there was less arching of her back.

Bed Swimming

This is the newest Olympic sport and Autumn is getting an early start at it. Bed swimming works best if the cover of you bed is fleece or micro-fiber (softer textures). The blue color lends authenticity to the sport (looks like water). Autumn loves to wiggle and squiggle and roll and flop and swim and pet and just wallow in the soft feel of our bedspread.

Another Reader in the Family

Literacy is important and it is good to introduce books to children at a young age. We've been reading to Autumn since she came home with us and she has always been very interested in the books. (ok, I'm off my soapbox now) She's really into reading lately.

Our Little Cook

Autumn has learned the joys of wooden spoons and tupperware. No loud noisy metal pots and pans yet. I'll let her find those on her own when she's on the move...which may be sooner than we are ready for! So you want to hire her Shawn?

New Beau

Here is my sister's new boyfriend. She goes for the brainy sort. His name is Ben and he likes to play with kites in the rain.

Strawberry Pickin'

We went to pick some strawberries. Yummmmmmm! Autumn is a good leaf picker. Here are a couple of pictures, the guy holding her is Marc, Kurt's cousin's husband. She's too young for the shortcake so we ate her piece for her. It was delicious!
