September was a full, and exciting month for us!  We played outside at parks, made a couple of trips to Folsom to see cousins and attend an Indian wedding (AMAZING), enjoyed the Reno balloon races (ALSO AMAZING--think hundreds of balloons), went to birthday parties, took walks around the temple, and splashed around at splash pads.  I think the most memorable part about this month has been all of the changes that are taking place in Bubs.  This month he pulled himself to standing, noticed and played with his own shadow, started kissing baby dolls, etc.  We love him more and more with every passing moment.  One milestone we wish he would hit is sleeping through the night..(zzzzzzzz)...but he really is the most pleasant baby during the daytime that we can forgive him this one weakness;)

a 'practically perfect' birthday party...

thanks to their aunt lindsey, the girls had a mary poppins party that was one for the books...avery and tilly have been somewhat obsessed with mary poppins lately, so when they found out we were going to be flying kites, drawing with chalk, and having horse races at their party, they were in heaven. we were so glad that most of our family and a few friends could join us for the celebration. by far my favorite part of the party was watching the girls ooh and aah over each gift they opened. you would think they had won the lottery each time--it was hysterical...and totally worth the planning...
it was a jolly holiday indeed!
