Lilypie Kids Birthday tickers

Autumn likes to pose for pictures and thinks it funny to say cheese. She'll say it when requested and then giggle. I don't know what's so funny about that word but something sure is. We are getting closer and closer to the "terrible twos". I don't think they are really going to be all that terrible but she is definately starting to um......assert her independence and hmmm.......advocate for her rights (or what she thinks are her rights). A friend of mine went to a class where they were shown how to put their child's behaviors in a more positive light. So I'm trying.......I'm positive she's more silly and assertive and funny and cute and loving every day.

New Exhibit

We went to see the new exhibit at the children's museum: Ball-O-Rama. Autumn had a blast. She enjoyed playing with the huge balls and putting the golf balls on the different tracks.

New Dance Moves

Autumn loves to dance, here she is trying out new moves, I wouldn't reccomend these for just anyone!

Guitar Hero

Autumn likes to do what her Daddy is doing so when he took a break from playing guitar hero to do a couple things for me, she decided it was her turn to play. Eventually we took a page from a friend's book and gave Autumn her wiggles guitar and they both "played" guitar hero.

Burnsville Firemuster Parade

We walked in Burnsville's Firemuster Parade yesterday for our friend Jerry Willemburg who is running for Mayor. Autumn had lots of fun. She rode on Kurt's shoulders for about the first half and then tried walking a bit. But even though the cars drive very slowly it is much faster than her little legs can go. Towards the end she was dragging and resting in her stroller. She loved waving to all the puppies and babies she saw. I brought a camera that I had just put new batteries in, but apparently they were new dead batteries. Toward the end I rememberd that my phone has a camera so we got a couple pictures.

The Budding Photographer

A friend gave Autumn a digital camera. We weren't going to get one for her until she is a bit older but you don't turn away free things! So she has been playing with it. Here is a view through Autumn's eyes.

The Intrepid Explorer

Autumn has been exploring her new home and some new additions to it. She got a car from some friends of ours from church, this has to be her absolute new favorite thing, she spends hours playing with it. Also we put a cat door out to the garage so that the cat's can get to their food and cat box and Autumn can't. :) See what she has been up to lately. We may not be able to get Kurt's car in the garage, but Autumn's fits nicely.

Autumn likes to play in the cupboard, she pulls all the pans out so she has room then opens and closes the door saying "Boo" and giggling. It is so funny to watch.

Autumn tried to go through the door just like the kitties but she doesn't fit. Her head it soo big (thank goodness!) and she even tried sitting in it but that didn't work very well either.

The Water Baby

Autumn sure loved playing in Glen Lake or the 'wake' and the 'wawer'. She wasn't crazy about the life jacket but after a couple of dunks we decided it was for the best and she tolerated it because it was the only way she was going to get to play in the water by herself (without an adult hovering). Again, I really did narrow the selection down but it was hard as they are all so cute.
