4: Me and My Parents June 2009

5: Look Who's Standing With Support | June 23, 2009

6: June 2009 We seemed to keep pretty busy this month. The ice cream man came to our neighborhood, we played in the big tub, we napped in our highchair, we played with toys, and we found that if we stared in the monkey mirror hanging in the car that we could see outside.

8: First Independence Day July 4, 2009

9: July 4, 2009 Dad had reserved a spot at the lake for us with a tarp early that morning. It rained all afternoon. We sat in the car and watched movies until it let up. Then the sun came out, the ice cream man came around, and we got to watch a spectacular fireworks show over Lake Loveland. Mikaela slept through the show, however, as she was exhausted from all the commotion.

10: July 2009

11: Tasty Bananas July 4, 2009

19: No Explanation Needed August 10, 2009 Mikaela had made a motion in the potty, so Dad put her on using Addyson's potty seat. I don't think this is what she had in mind...

23: After lunch had been eaten, we took some time to sit and enjoy the free music (the basic essence of New West Fest). The girls really enjoyed dancing and we all had a great time laughing and enjoy each others' company. On the way back to the car, Mikaela fell asleep with her face down in the wagon. It definitely scared us at first, but once we realiz were okay with it. In fact, Addyson kept dropping popcorn on her head and she still didn't wake up. | August 16, 2009

61: Let's Get Carving October 25, 2009 Mikaela was there for the initial slicing of the pumpkins, but then fell asleep. After waking from her nap, there were these strange orange men staring her down from the fireplace. Her curious nature couldn't keep her away.

63: Trick-or-Treating: Day One October 30, 2009 In what has become an annual tradition, we trick-or-treated at the grandparents' houses on Halloween Eve. That way, the girls get to go trick-or-treating around the neighborhood on Halloween night and the grandparents get to see how cute the kids are. Needless to say, Mikaela loved all of the attention.
