They were taken a few months ago back in late July on a hike up Kamiak Butte. When I saw them I couldn't resist doing a post. Especially when I found this from the year before:

Just a reading away.
This is her new "cheese" face.
This year was no exception! My sister-in-law Erin, our friend Joanne, and I decided to brave it and carve pumpkins with our three little ones on Friday night. It was actually pretty fun, but definitely a lot more work than in years past. I'm sure it didn't help that we were close to bedtime when we decided to start.
Dillon had a blast! He was totally into digging in and finding the pumpkin guts. While Isabelle, on the other hand, wasn’t too sure sure if she liked it or not and if she did, she sure wasn’t going to let us all know. Cassidy enjoyed having these big orange things to support her in standing and had fun crawling through all the mess. =) We didn’t exactly get finished products when it was all said and done, but it was fun to get together to visit and watch the kids interact. I can't believe how much little Cassidy has grown! I'll have to post a picture once we finish our pumpkin, hopefully sometime this week.
But once she warmed up decided Cassidy needed a... pumpkin scrub?!
(Sorry if you had pumpkin goo to wash out of her hair, Jo!)
Having fun digging in! (Check out that messy dress!)
Diggin' in some more with Mama!

At 14 months old:
She weighs 20 lbs. 8 oz. -- 20th percentile
She is 30 inches long -- 50th percentile
And her head is 46 cm -- 75th percentile
Within the past two month Izzy's love for reading has quadrupled! She will read books morning, noon, and night. She's always loved to sit down and read a few books, but now she will read for hours, literally. Her interest in baby dolls has also increased. She kisses them, pats them on the back and when she lays them down she says, "Nigh, night." Her vocabulary is increasing daily as well. She will try to repeat anything we ask her to say, although you can't always make out what she's saying. Some of her newest words are flower "ower", apple "papple", bite please "beat peas", and monkey "mumkey". She loves to tell us the noises that animals make -- her favorite is the lion and cow. =) She still enjoys climbing, but not as much as she used to. She no longer tries to climb everything in sight. Her newest trick is climbing up onto something and bending her knees while she says "Dump!" (jump). It's amazing and so neat to see how much she is learning and picking up on lately. She's just a little sponge!
And this was after her shots that afternoon (you can see the band aid on her arm). She ended up getting five shots... four booster shots and the flu shot (one in the arm and two in each leg). Poor little girl! :( She was a trooper, but had a bit of a fever that evening and next day.
Other than the shots her appointment went well. The doctor says she's perfect, but we already knew that! =)
Welcome to another Not Me! Monday! This blog carnival was created by MckMama, where mothers, wives, and other bloggers from computers around the world deny doing the things that they did during the week. A sort of confession-type therapy, only we're not really confessing are we? Well you might be, but I'm not. Nope, not me! You can head over to her blog to read what she and everyone else have not been doing this week. And feel free to join in on the fun!
I most certainly did NOT forget about the spaghetti sauce that was cooking on the stove the other night. I was not off snapping pictures of Isabelle while the RED sauce splattered all over my WHITE stove top! Nope, not me!
