Avery Chase turns two!

Our niece Avery turned two today, so we naturally celebrated with an Elmo themed party. The birthday girl seemed to have a great party, but quickly loss focus on opening her presents. She loved the gift her Uncle Chad gave her, and decided that I needed to open it up for her to play with. Alexander was happy it was opened up too, because he quickly started to play with the toys as well. We sang Happy Birthday to her, and then we had to cut into the cute Elmo cake that my sister's friend made for Avery. The cake looked and tasted great! I now know how to make a Elmo birthday cake if we ever need another one! Here are the pictures from today:

Apple Picking

Andrew and I had decided that we wanted to go apple picking this year as a family, in hopes this would become a new tradition for our family. We decided to go to Styer's Orchard since they had the Stayman apples we were after for pie baking. Alexander decided that eating the apple was more fun than picking it, and Andrew did a great job on getting a whole bucket full of apples for us. We then took Xander over to see the painted pumpkins. We were not there too long today, but we did have a great time. Here are some pictures of our trip:

What a strong baby I have!

Alexander decided to show us just how strong he is today. He decided to push his two year old cousin in her toy car. She loved being pushed around and he was so proud of himself! Sorry for the clip being sideways.

10 months

10 months old already, where does the time go Alexander? Alexander is close to walking on his own, he continues to crawl faster everyday and can now stand without holding on to anything. He looks more like a little boy than a baby each day. I can't believe we will be celebrating your birthday in two short months! You loved eating Mommy's birthday cake, and made a mess doing so. I can't wait to see what you will look like at your birthday! You are learning to do more each day and it is great to see the changes happen.

  • You are starting to love having Mommy and Daddy read your books to you. You like to skip the pages so you can look at the pictures.
  • You are becoming a pro with a sippy cup.
  • You love to push your walking toy around the whole apartment and are so proud of yourself. 
  • You have become tired of the pureed baby foods and only want to eat foods you can feed yourself, but you are still letting Mommy spoon feed every once in a while.
