Thanksgiving 2010

We spend the entire week of Thanksgiving in Minot with Kim (Kris' sister) and her wonderful family. It was a super week full of absolute laziness, wonderful food and some of the best people on earth.

I tried to do a super neat collage with the Thanksgiving pictures, but blogger made it really, really tiny. So, for the holiday in pictures, check out my photo blog:

Fifteen Months Old

Who needs television when you have a 15-month-old? This month has been a hoot as Edie's personality has really shown through. She is happy and active, curious yet careful... oh, and if you ask her she's absolutely hilarious. We think she's pretty funny too.

Her vocabulary has about tripled over the last month and she knows the sounds to about seven or so animals (including an owl, a lion and Onslow the cat). She has put a few words together but our favorite, by far, is "where is it?," which she picked up while looking for my missing phone last week.

She has really started to become attached to objects within the last few weeks and insists on having two of her favorite blankets with her when she sleeps along with her doll and her puppy (a super adorable corgi stuffed animal).

At her doctor appointment today, we found out she is pretty tall (in the 72%) but still a string bean (weight still below 22 lb). I guess it makes sense why she has been so hungry lately! All that cheese and peaches have gone straight to her bones.

Oh, and did you know Edie can dance?

Halloween 2010

This year, our little Edie dressed up as a wee Owlet for Halloween.
Kris and I posed as trees.

The costumes were all handmade and pretty darn easy at that. Edie's Owlet costume was a inspired by this costume from AlphaMom, the base of the bonnet/hat pattern was found at Made by Petchy and her wings/capelet pattern was found (and altered a bit) on my fave sewing blog Grosgrain Fabulous. Kris and my costumes were even easier... fake leaves from JoAnn's Fabric hot glued on to thrift store finds.

I'm already brainstorming for next year!
