Cheeks and Chins

Can you tell why I titled the post "cheeks and chins"? :) It's hard to tell, I know! Obviously Aine is growing well and getting big. Leah is still loving her...constantly giving her kisses and hugs. She likes to go into her room in the morning with me and say "good morning Baby Aine". Leah's vocabulary increases daily, and she's always saying something that makes us laugh. 

It was an eventful week: we went to the Baytowne Wharf Beer Festival last weekend. The weather was perfect...just cool enough with enough sun cover.  Eric also had an ORE (Operational Readiness Exercise) at work this week ...he was working from 6 PM until about 1 AM (so all of our schedules and internal clocks were a bit off). Then Tracy had her baby on Thursday...all 9 lbs 10 ozs of her! Then we went to the pumpkin patch this weekend. We let Leah pick out a small pumpkin. She picked out one for herself, Aine, Katherine and baby Libby (Tracy's new addition). She walks around the house with it and insisted on bringing it to church yesterday! "MY baby pumpkin!"

The pumpkin patch had a hay ride. At first Leah was a little hesitant, but fully into it once it got going.
The fam...
Hmmmm...so many to choose from!
She didn't quite understand the concept of throwing the bean bags through the holes and chose to stick her hand through the hole and drop them. She enjoyed it though!
LOVING the bouncy castle...surprise, surprise!
She decided Boo needed a pumpkin.
Sugar kisses...
How nice of Aine to plump up in order to provide her sister a pillow...what a thoughtful baby!

At the Beer Fest...

There was also a Corvette show. LOTS of gorgeous vettes!

Passed out (errr sleeping) on the way home from the beer fest.
"I hold Baby Aine"...
Tracy's new angel, Elizabeth Grace (Libby)

Great pictures! Thanks for posting. I can't believe how big Aine is getting and what a big helper you have in Leah (I have the same "help"). I will try and call sometime so we can catch up!
