12 month check up

What a whirl wind of a weekend! Our health insurance would only allow us to see our doctors in San Diego and Afton needed to get her one year old shots. We ended up having to drive all the way down to San Diego for shots. So lame! We drove down Thursday night, had Afton's doctor appointment Friday morning, had my doctors appointment right after Afton's, then drove right back to Fresno in time for cousin Charlie's costume birthday bash. It was a couple of very long days. But we survived and both of us are healthy and happy.

Weight: 18.14lbs (10th percentile)
Height: 30in. (73rd percentile)
Head: 18in. (65th percentile)

Afton was pretty fussy for this appointment. I'm sure it was from all the driving and sleeping in car seats she had to do.

Not so sure about the Dr.'s cold hands. Her regular doctor was out of town so we saw someone else.

We made it to Charlies birthday party and even had time to go pick out a Star Wars present for him! It was a costume party (since it was the day before halloween). I lived out a childhood dream this year and dressed up as the paper bag princess! My costume took maybe 30 minutes to make and a felt all giddy inside wearing it that night!

This is one of my favorite books. I never tired of reading it when I was little and I still love it just as much today!

Logan was Michael Phelps. He borrowed his awesome costume from Emily Holliday. He hears so much from people that he looks like Michael Phelps so we figured it would be a great costume this year for him.

Looking hot in spandex pants!

And Afton was a cute little skunk. At 12 months her two favorite things were blueberries and her plush skunk(stinky) that she carried all over the place and took everywhere with her. I just didn't have enough time to make her a blueberrie costume so I order this skunk one on ebay for cheap. It definitely simplified our Halloween not having to make a costume!

Pumpkin Patch

What's Autumn without a visit to the pumpkin patch!? We stopped by one but ended up not buying any pumpkins... they're cheaper at the super market and we're lame. So Savemart thank you for your 3 for $10 deal. We did however make sure to go down the super slide while we were there. I think Afton held her breath the whole way down. haha. The things we make her try!

Still not quite 20 pounds!

Climbing through the pumpkins

Grandma took this pic... it was a nice try. :)

Family Pics and Afton at 1 year!

It's football season...

... and when dad came back from his last stint in San Diego he brought this jersey home for the little girl. He loves seeing her wear it.

And recently Aftons been eating a lot of PB&J's. She loves them but I don't love cleaning her up afterwards. :)

Playing with Puppies and Hot Rods!

Ok well maybe not hot rods but she acts like it sometimes. She gets on Mazurs 3 wheeler and acts like she owns the world and has a need for speed! She loved those puppies while they were here.

October, October, October... you never let me down. That's why you are and will always be my favorite month! Her are a few pics from October.

Getting ready for Halloween to come!!! I can never get her to leave her bows on!

She always immediately takes her bows off and then tries putting them back on her head... what a weird girl.

And this was cut off!!!! I am free! (Don't worry you can't see anything)

Eating more raw vegetable. Cucumbers in this pic.

One sad little princess. The day after her birthday dad had to leave and go to San Diego to work two more weeks at his job. We both missed him. Thanks to Kris and Emily at the Holliday Inn for giving him a place to stay!

Now she's happy. What a cute girl.
