I finally ventured off to the pond that my husband has told me about. The pond is about five minutes from our house and there's a one mile walkway around the perimeter. I was pleasantly surprised at how pretty it was and I wished that I had taken advantage of it being there sooner. In any case, I found a new favorite place to walk when the weather gets cooler.
Aiyana has become quite the little helper around the house. Dana says she's just like me and I have to smile to myself and think "yep... she is". Aiyana might even exceed my level and need for cleanliness and even I find her a bit over-the-top about certain things. For instance, she will not continue eating if she spilled some of her food on her place mat; she will insist it be cleaned up before she takes another bite. Things like that make me crazy at times, but I am thankful that she picks up after herself at such a young age and she is very pleased with herself when she helps mommy clean around the house. Gotta teach 'em young ;o)

I love this girl... She is such a sweet little one and although I look forward to all the wonderful milestones ahead; I don't want to see these baby years go by.
Clara is just about ready to crawl, in fact I think she will be all over the place in about a month. Initially I was concerned about Clara's lack of interest in babbling and using consonants. Don't get me wrong... Clara is loud and she lets her presence be known, but her communication has thus far consisted of this wrenching "ehhhh" noise, an ever-so precious "ohhhh" noise and not much else. That is until today. Now we can add "thah, thah, thah, thah" to the list. I guess I cannot expect both of my girls to reach their milestones at the same age. Aiyana babbled earlier than Clara, but Clara has outdone Aiyana in the sitting department.
Here's a video of Clara's new sound...

I am most interested in purchasing a Nikon... I have always wanted one. This is one that I found on sale at Cosco CAMERA. I'm not even sure if this is a good one to purchase for someone with little lens experience or if it has too many limitations for me to continue learning during my photography journey.

This picture was actually taken on our way to the canyon. A forest fire that started from lightening caused a large area of trees to burn :o(
My mom took this picture... we decided that Aiyana must have been deep in thought.
Clara is all bundled up for the cooler weather. It dipped into the lower 50's that night... brrrr. That's too cold for us Phoenix folk.
