Guess who's crawling?

Motivated by her desire for the Blackberry (the electronic device, not the fruit), Caroline crawled her first three consecutive steps - and repeated it several times. Imagine what she would do for an iPhone!

Eight months old!

Today was the perfect fall day - crisp but not cold, and sunny. And last week's cold snap brought the leaves to their peak colors. Caroline planned to celebrate her 8 month old birthday jamming to some accordian music, noshing on a bratwurst, and leaf peeping at Bear Mountain for Oktoberfest. But apparently all the other infants and toddlers in NY and NJ had the same idea, and we couldn't get close to it or the any of the other Bear Mountain attractions. The drive was beautiful though, and we stopped to enjoy a local nursery's petting zoo instead.

Hi Grandma and Grandpa

Grandma and Grandpa Brooks came for a visit this week. We played a lot and had lots of fun. We sure will miss them, but we'll see them in just 2 months for Christmas!

I love ice cream, and even more when I share it with Grandpa!

Leaf peeping

Last weekend we trekked to Vermont to look at the leaves and enjoy the fall weather. It was brrr cold, but we had a great time. Caroline went to her first Oktoberfest, and Annabel ran through her first corn maze.

On the way up, we stopped at Marcella's and Roger's to meet baby Max. He's 10 months old!

In other news, Caroline got her first tooth about two weeks ago. She's scooching backwards, and has the crawling position down. Now if she could just get those knees to move. Annabel is talking up a storm and finds new things to climb every day. She scaled a toy storage unit at Ikea this weekend.
Grandma and Grandpa have been visiting since Wednesday. Pray for good weather so they can enjoy their last few days with the girls.
