E has been all about puzzles lately, as soon as she wakes up, she wants to go downstairs to do some puzzles. When she gets home from daycare, she wants to do puzzles. When its time for dinner, we have to drag her away from her puzzles. She's getting really good. She has moved on from the puzzles with pegs to jig saw puzzles and just finished her first 40+ piece one tonight.

Our new addition

Someone new has been coming to our house lately, meet Princess Hurley. Here she is wearing her "favorite uniform"

Princess Hurley does a lot of dancing and jumping. She is also quite the bead twirler. My favorite part is the fact that when Princess Hurley is here, dada becomes Grandpa Hurley. It is not yet clear if I am Grandma Hurley!

Aside from Princess Hurley, there has been a lot of drumming lately. E has been using my birthday balloon and a knitting needle as a drum.

And, finally, we've been taping. Its been a while since there has been tape at our house, mostly because E likes to use it to tape EVERYTHING. We run out in a day. But, she found some painter's tape and has been putting it to good use.

Mommy's birthday

We celebrated my birthday, E was ready for a party and ice cream from the minute she woke up. We stalled her until evening. We had a great day celebrating with our family.

October was a busy month. Nothing in particular happened, but we were hopping all the same.

A look back at our pictures reveals a pretty normal month. Our biggest news is that E is going to be a big sister! She is hoping for a baby sister named Adaline and thus far, completely rejects the idea of a baby brother. We are going to cross that bridge when we get to it.

Other then that, we have been playing quite a bit. I finished this doll, and E has been sleeping with it ever since.

She found this purse of mine and has claimed it as her own, she filled it with her favorite toys, and carries it around. My favorite part is the way that on an adult, this is an over the shoulder bag, but on her, its a cross body style.

E loves these Aerial PJs, and wears them all the time! Sometimes even to daycare.

She is also developing an interest in music. She has been drumming a lot and singing all the time.

One highlight of the month was celebrating Great Gramma's 92nd birthday. E got to see some of her second cousins who she hasn't seen since she was a baby, at Great Gramma's 90th birthday.

We also made sure to get the most out of Halloween. We went with Grandpa Ada to the Halloween at the zoo, E wore her Captain America costume.

We carved pumpkins, the activity held E's interest for about 5 minutes and that was all he further we got.

On Halloween night, we were shocked, when instead of Captain America, E insisted on going as Cinderella. But she loved her costume, and had a great time collecting candy with her friends.

E is busy trying to find someone to marry. When I picked her up at daycare the other day she told me that she was going to mary Colin because "he played with me in the house." The house is one of those plastic play houses.

Later that same night, she asked Andy if he would marry her. She was a little miffed when he said that he already was married!
