Stella Times…46 Weeks

Dear Stells,

You continue to grow and change every week. You constantly explore every nook and cranny, and if you can create a mess while you’re exploring, you do. πŸ™‚

Fall weather is definitely here, and we spent last weekend hanging out and enjoying the weather before it gets too cold to go outside without being all bundled up. You LOVE being outdoors. If you’re fussy, we just go outside with you and you’re happy as a clam.

Our favorite new face of yours – squished up nose, right eye shut, and tongue sticking out! LOL

Loving the leaf pile Daddy raked up for you!

It’s hard to look at the camera with a Daddy as cute are your’s around, isn’t it? πŸ™‚

I still get Wednesdays off of work to hang out with YOU, which is totally awesome. After KinderMusik this week, we got together with a few friends to hang out in the hot springs. You splashed and laughed for almost an hour straight!

The Class of 2030!

Oh – I almost forgot to say that you started saying “Uh oh!” this week, and it’s pretty much the cutest thing ever. I’m not sure if we’re calling it your first official “words” or not, but it’s pretty awesome to hear actual words come out of your mouth. πŸ™‚

We love you so much, baby!!

  2. I love the pic of her with the tissue around her. She is looking at the camera with the look of “I didn’t do this”. Too cute!

  3. haha love the photo of her with the tissues!!! Reminds me so much of Alidia right now. She is into EVERYTHING too! Swimming in the hot springs sounds awesome! I want to come visit your world!! In fact, as Anthony saw me reading this and asked, “Who are they?”, I said “Those are our friends we are going to visit in CO!” haha someday!! Well I am loving all the new photos and your new blog header photo. You look great! You all do! πŸ™‚ Love the new ‘uh oh’… I bet that is super cute!

    1. You guys are always welcome!! We have some great hot springs around here. πŸ™‚ The pool we were in on Wednesday has multiple areas at different temps, so we were in the part that was around 99-100 with the kiddos (which was perfect with the cool fall air!). My sis-n-law was with us as well, and she held babies while we took turns doing dips in the hot part too. πŸ™‚

  4. So cute! Love the picture with the tissues, she looks pretty proud of herself! Also love the squinty face!! It is so cute that Charlie was excited about the leaves – the picture of her watching Daddy is priceless!
