Happy Halloween!!!

Well this is our first Halloween in Germany, and Kyra's first EVER!! It has been pretty uneventful so far aside from a party or two this weekend. But as for today I dressed Kyra up for pictures for you all to see her costume, but since its pretty cold outside she is going to be wearing her Eeyore costume for trick or treating and we are only gonna go to the like 8 houses on our block plenty for year one. Than my neighbor Cristina and I will sit out front and hand out candy to kids until we run out :) Sounds like a fun evening it only last 2 hours so it should be good.

But here is a few pictures of Kyra in her costume, and our carved pumpkins!!!

And for an update on what we have been up to the only real exciting thing we have done this month is we went and experienced picking apples from an orchard on a perfect fall day!! Kyra had a good time and has been devour them :) Here are a few pictures from that trip also.

And just to make this post even more random I shall post another super easy recipe!!! Sorry this is about how organized I am in every aspect of my life lol. My mind goes in like 500 directions at a time.

3 Ingredient Brownies

1 cup Nutella
10 tbsps flour

7 months

Nicknames: Kyra Bug, Kyra Boo, Crazy girl

Clothing Size: Mostly 6-9  some 12 months

Personality: You are a little ball of energy, you are always going or napping. It is nearly impossible to get you to just sit still anymore. You are a very talkative little one and love to look at everyone!

Things I Could Do Without:  I miss you sleeping 8-12 hours a night IDK where those days went. Apparently going on a long trip like that followed by jet lag, a growth spurt, a cold, and now teething could be part of it. I think after your second tooth gets in we may go back to normal.

Item/Toy We Love The Most: Broom and the camera, with you growing so much the past month you are now crawling all over so I gotta keep clean. and Take pictures of everything new!!

Item/Toy You Love The Most: Toadstool stand up toy, and the Alligator blocks.

Things I’m Loving Most Right Now: Those big smiles, that you finally have a tooth, playing with your hair, and watching you learn

Things You’re Loving Most Right Now: Crawling crawling crawling and getting into everything...I am so glad we baby proofed!! And you now like to stand up to everything you can, like your crib the couch the tv stand all over me etc....

This last month has brought so many changes to Kyra's life and man did it happen fast, my little girl who just last month was immobile and played with her toys is now going anywhere she pleases, and is not far from doing it on only 2 legs no doubt.

Kyra crawling around nakey!!! Look at that smile!!

Ich Liebe Germany

I am so excited because it is fall time. I know to most people that isn't all that exciting but after spending the 3 last falls in Hawaii the state that doesn't really have seasons. So the little crispness in the air and the amazing colors that the trees are changing to are a great change for us!!! It actually feels like it is almost Halloween and holidays are around the corner!! Along with the beautiful weather comes beautiful pictures :)

I was honored to take pictures of my neighbors ADORABLE daughter Lilia!! She just turned one and was a great little model!!! I am no professional but had a great time working on my photo taking skills!! Although it was a bit chilly so we made it a quick photo-shoot!! Here are a couple of my favorites from the day!

She was a fantastic little model and I was glad to give her mommy some new pictures of her to print off!!! Hopefully the next time I go take pictures will be of their whole family!

Also in the spirit of the season we of course got Kyra's 6 month pictures taken and they are very much fall themed also!! Here are the ones we have gotten back so far!! Thanks so much to Ashley Berry who has been the worlds greatest photographer for us!!!

I will post more once we get them!! As there are some really cute family pictures also!! So stayed tuned for those in the next day or two!

Today we got out went downtown and walked around but after not too long decided it was a bit chilly and we weren't exactly dressed appropriately and chose to go for a little drive before we headed home to clean. Here are a couple pictures from our day...

The colors were a lot prettier than I was able to capture in motion.

And now for the video you have all been waiting for. The magnificent Kyra crawling on wood floors....Guess who is gonna be spending a lot more time chasing a small child around. This Girl. But I don't mind I am just so proud of her and her accomplishments!! And next without a doubt is gonna be pulling herself up to things. I give it a month before she has that one down!!

The Creature is moving.

             Well the day we have been waiting for has arrived!! It took longer than expected but she decided she was ready and off she went! We even had to rearrange the living room to make cords less accessible to her. And what everyone says about them going mobile as far as they will go for what they shouldn't is so true. It's like all that time when she was laying on the floor looking around she was scoping out all the things in the room that she isn't allowed to play with and goes straight for them as soon as she could. But really it's not a big deal since I am always in the room with her when she is free on the floor. And she can't really crawl on the wood yet it is too slick for beginners so she is kinda trapped on her own on the rug in the living room for now. Although I am sure that too won't last. And we will find new area's that need to be baby proofed but until than I will just enjoy her new found skill!!!

              I realize that most of you if not all of you that read my blog are also friends with me on Facebook so the video I am going to attach to this is old news to you. But that is my job as a mom to BRAG!! So I am gonna attach it again anyways!! So here you have it ladies and gentleman the little creature on the go on Video
