Too cool for words!

October has been an amazing month in terms of milestones, accomplishments, and changes. Here is what is happening with Baby Ash:

1) First of all, her bottom left tooth is about cut through. I can feel it!
2) She is talking! That would be baby talk of course. She says, "ma-ma, da-da, and bah-bah." She started saying "da-da and ba-ba" last Friday. It is so cute. She started saying "ma-ma" a while back but she still only says it when she wants to eat or is crying. She says "da-da and ba-ba" constantly. She also tries to say "hi."
3) She gets around all over the place - the soldier crawl and scooting. She does it so much that her knees are red. She sometimes lunges and it cracks me up.
4) She is trying to wave - she takes her arm and flaps it against the side of her body really hard and fast.
5) She growls/roars. Hubby calls it a "demonic roar." When she does this, it sends me into uncontrollable laughter. I think she learned if from KK's baby.
6) She now eats mixed vegetables and likes them. She also loves oatmeal cereal. During the hours of 7 a.m. - 4 p.m., she drinks four 7-ounce bottles, eats rice cereal twice, and gobbles an entire jar of veggies.
7) She drinks water out of a sippy cup - we love watching her! She really likes to bite on the mouthpiece.
8) She grabs and wants everything out of reach.
9) She gives the biggest hugs. We love getting those from her.
10) She smiles and laughs all of the time. Big Sister loves to make her laugh. Big Sister is the best!!!

Baby Ash is such a great baby!! I took her to the doctor on Monday for her 2nd flu shot. She weighs 18.2 pounds. She will go again for her 9 month check-up in December.

As for KB...what can I say? She is great! KB loves kindergarten. She is learning to read and loves doing "homework." Along with going to kindergarten, we have paid for her to take karate, ballet/tap, piano, and jazz/hip-hop. All of these activities are offered at her school. All we have to do is provide the appropriate attire and pay the tuition. All of these classes take place after school for one hour each day (nothing on Thursdays). She is so adorable. I can't believe that my KB is in kindergarten. I love hearing her stories about her daily activities and learning her new songs.

Well, that is it for now.
