11 Months Old!

Cosette is 11 months old now! I say this every month, but I can't believe how quickly time is flying by with her. She is such a sweetheart but also mischievous. Meaning that when she comes to crawl into your lap, you never know if it's for a snuggle or a poke in the eye!
Here are some recent pics:

Unlike her brother, when Coco is quiet in another room, she isn't usually destroying something. She's reading. I caught her in the act!

I have been trying to get a good tooth shot. Cosette's front teeth came in this past month, and they are so cute!

A rare, being-still moment:

Playing with the big toys!

I can not even believe she will be 1 next month!

Kelsy and I went to Macey's the other night and were so excited to find a huge bin of different kinds of squash! You know you are Joan's daughter if you get super excited about seasonal produce!

I have never tried any of these varieties. Here's a closeup:

From right to left:

I love root vegetables and usually roast a big pan of them a few times a month. Has anyone tried any of these? Any good recipes?

His Father's Son

Cash is definitely a daddy's boy. Aside from the obvious love of Batman, Cash kept this costume on all day Friday and handed me an imaginary "remote control" so that I could play the Batman video game with Cash as the star!
Our local zoo had "Boo at the Zoo" this weekend, which is a little carnival of booths and prizes for kids. Here is Cash checking stuff out:
The bean-bag toss. Gotta get in close!

Batman can fly!

Batman and Two-face. Cash kept saying, "Let's go, Toothpaste!" Heehee.

We had a fun time, but it was so cold! I think I might retire Batman and make Cash a Santa costume instead. It's all about wearing warm sweatpants!
