Weekend Adventure

I think she tuckered him out a little bit.
And my baby's new 2 front teeth!
In other news...Lisa and I were super vigilant about not getting spiders in the back of my car, so we put each piece of wood into a sealable bin, 1 piece at a time. We even inspected for spiders as we picked the wood (which made the process take incredibly too long!) Well, we must not have been that great because on my drive home, going 70 miles an hour downhill on the freeway, I noticed a ROGUE spider crawling towards me on the dashboard. I had a momentary heart attack, tried to decide if I could kill it and not kill the three of us in the car. I immediately pulled onto the side of the freeway, managed to pull myself together in time to watch the spider JUMP on to the door! It took everything in me to kill that sucker (sorry but I don't consider spiders to be animals but Satan's minions.)

I was a little jumpy the rest of the way home.

And I vacuumed the entire car wearing gloves.

Fall News..

A lot has been going on around here. I have a job...(2 days a week nannying, Ashby helps me :)

Here is a quick pictorial review of the last few months..
Auntie Kate moved up to Seattle....and in with us!!! (I am so thankful, especially after an exceptionally long, daddy-less night.)
Ashby started crawling...timidly at first, but now she is all over the place.
 Her first Halloween came and went. We decided to have her be a giraffe. Her dad said its because she has a long neck..
 She didn't really eat the candy, but it made for some really cute pictures.
And she was a very cute little giraffe...
 And what giraffe should not have a tutu when they are 8 1/2 months old?
 We have actually had a fall. I forgot how beautiful the fall is here. This is from the blueberry farm down the hill from my house and along the trail that Ashby, Kuma, Kate and I walk.
 We went to visit the family in LA, and took the kids to the pumpkin patch.
 She still looks just like her daddy.
 She discovered that she absolutely loves the swing!! Loves the swing...and stays in it for as long as I will push her.
And finally, it is officially time to start baby proofing.
Tuesday nights the Seahawks let the families come and have dinner at the facility. Bonus because Dave gets to see daddy in the daylight, and I get a night off from cooking.

This is just a peek. But I feel proud to have even done this much. Happy October...
