Our October

October is always one of those weird months for me, trying to enjoy the fall but getting so eager for the upcoming holiday season!  We've been enjoying the warmer fall temps - it makes it so nice to bring both the girls outside to play, Ells loves it and Lo loves the fresh air too!

My hands have felt a tad extra full during the day since Lo has officially two teeth popping through and her can't be put down for two second mentality is kind of hitting an all time high.  Naps are approximately 10 minutes long if I do put her down, but she's still sleeping pretty decent at night so I'm not complaining about that.  Lo is also so close to sitting up all by herself!!  I'm not trying to rush time here, but this is one of those milestones I'm feeling extra excited for since it will allow her and Ells to play even more together.

Ellie is loving her dance class, she's an expert at rolling like a "lolo" (yellow) crayon down the mats and I'm kind of obsessed with watching her learn her dance positions at the toddler sized bar they have set up for the girls.  She's also doing really well with speech, adding more words into her daily vocabulary and really finding her voice lately. :)

We've also been working on crossing some of the things off of our fall bucket list!  We picked pumpkins and I gave their girls their "boo basket" a couple weekends ago - a new book, paints for pumpkin painting, cupcake decorating supplies and a festive teether for baby Lo.

I'm looking forward to squeezing in a few more fall festivities (and as many apple ciders as I can!), but "Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays" dance parties are scheduled to start promptly on November 1st and I have a feeling my favorite two year old isn't going to argue with me about it! ;)
