New Coat

Thanks to Auntie Cath for sending us this warm coat that Caitlin can wear in the car. I was having trouble figuring out how to keep her safe AND warm in the car since we're not supposed to wear puffy winter coats in carseats b/c it's not this was a perfect solution. Thanks to Auntie Ella, we presume, for initially buying this for Conor--what a wonderful handme down. Caitlin loves new-to-her stuff right now and talked about her new coat all morning.

Family time

We had fun visiting Grandma Joanie and Grandpa Buddy one more time before they left. We also got to spend time with Uncle Ron (who Caitlin talked about all the way home even though she acted scared of him the whole time we were there).
With Aunt Rebecca and Uncle Don...(note the cheesy smile with eyes closed--it's her new "smile face")
Four generations...
Grandma Joanie and Grandpa Buddy with Caitlin (I took 6 pictures and got ZERO with everyone looking at the camera)

Playing with Grandpa
With nana..

Playing a bit of catch up

Playing with great-grandma Joanie and great-grandpa Buddy for the first time in over a year! Caitlin loves her gamma and gapa.
A little cold weather couldn't stop Caitlin--still loves playing outside--even playing in the sandbox when it's 40 degrees.

our little daredevil

To say that Caitlin had a ball on the beach at Elberta would be the understatement of the year. she is such a daredevil now, that it is scary to be near the water with her--she will just run straight into the lake without hesitating.

new pictures

we got to babysit jack--caitlin liked having him around even if it was just for a short while.

frankfort beach this weekend--we went up north with some friends--thankful to my mom and dad who let us stay at their wonderful place--the weather was freakishly HOT (>90) an we did not pack appropriately...
Our dear friends, who have a little girl about 2 months older than Caitlin joined us--I'll post a few pictures of the girls having fun together.
throwing water over themselves in the bath

OK--these are going to be out of order, but I'll post the beach pictures on a new post above....

Random Pictures from September

playing daddy's harmonica
looking bored with her veggies :)
pushing her lion around on the train--she always says "sit down lion...ready?" then pushes him around the kitchen

putting a bib on lion (It is actually a coin purse, but caitlin liked it better as a lion's bib

the masterpiece....
playing mommy to her elephant and her lion--she has recently gotten very into mothering her stuffed animals--she will put them in her highchair, pretend to feed them, offer them her sippy cup, set them up at the little table (pictured) with crayons, give them timeouts, etc.
