Finally! Here was our October:
Daphne watched much of General Conference in this position:
Olive Garden in our first restaurant booster seat. You could tell she felt very grown up.
Family photo shoot
Daphne drew a picture for her Uncle Peter (my brother) who is on a mission in Mexico. Daph was born 2 weeks after he left, so she'll be meeting him for the first time when he comes home on December 31st!
Painting our Halloween pumpkins! Daph took it very seriously. She spent about 30 minutes on hers.
She loves to sweep and is a very good helper.
Helping Grandma with our Halloween costumes
We went on many bike rides, and Daphne loves it! She says "whee!" as we go down the driveway. She often says that when we are backing out of our driveway in our car, too.
Helping with laundry
First time painting her nails! Twins.
Showing off her mittens.
Mama-Daughter date at the Tracy Aviary
Nothing says winter like Elmo moon boots. She loves wearing them.
Visiting Grandma Lola
Daph loved trick-or-treating! She loved knocking and would say thank-you after someone gave her a candy. Her favorite by far was a sucker.
Also this month....
~Started saying "Love you." It's so sweet. We laugh because it sounds a lot like "yee-hoo."
~When we are putting her to bed at night, she will tell us "nigh-night, yee-hoo."
~Asks often to have "a turn" with something that we are using or holding.
~Loves the color yellow
~Asks multiple times a day to see the camera so she can look at all the pictures
~Says "toot" after she... toots.
~First 3-word phrase: "I don't know." First 4-word phrase: "Where did it go?"
~Ends most sentences with the word "baby." I always call her "baby," so she will say things like "okay, baby" and "uh-oh, baby."
~Oct. 6th: While she was playing by herself, I was listening to her and she counted 1, 2, 3, 5, 6, 8, 9, 10. Smartie pants. We're working on 4 and 7.
~Oct. 23rd: Did her first somersault
~Each morning when I go in her room to get her out of her crib, her first request is for her "toys." One night this month she woke up at 11 pm ready to go see all of her "toys." Only about 8 hours early.
~We were walking around Costco, and Daph went into the cold produce room and wouldn't leave. She wanted to stay in there so she could keep saying "Brrrr."
~One of my absolute favorite moments with Daphne was when we were walking along the shops at Station Park and passed Zumiez. Daphne could hear the music playing and walked right in like she owned the place and danced her little heart out to the heavy beat of some rap song I'm sure I've never heard. She danced and danced, and was putting on quite a show for the boys working there. It was absolutely hilarious and sweet, and the employee with dreads even joined her.
