Catching Up!

On a recent trip to Iowa, my dad reminded me that it had been months since I updated the family blog. Ok, so that was in May and it's now July...The Erkel family has been busy! Here's what Aissa has been up to. Yes, I know that's really who you all want to see!

 Aunt Sara knit this gorgeous "newsboy" hat for Aissa's 2nd birthday and she wore it everywhere this winter. You can order your very own at Sally HP Knits!

 Spring cleaning and Aissa was in charge, with the help of Daddy's old drill sergeant hat!
 Finally, the snow melted and she could try out her birthday present on the open road..
 Bye bye crib, hello freedom...what were we thinking?
 Oral hygiene: Live it, love it.
 Topless Easter egg coloring
 Aunt Tam came to visit in May and showed Aissa her latest toy...and then had to share!
 Granny and Papa showered Aissa with love and undivided attention for two weeks in May!

 Wood chips? No...confetti!
 Finger-turned-body-painting. Or, as I like to call it: 30 minutes of distraction so I can make dinner.
 What is this magical, sweet, fizzy liquid in the chilly can? Soda!

 Don't be fooled by the pose into thinking she is potty trained...
 Like mother, like daughter, this girl loves to bake

 Chillin' at the Zoo with mom and dad

Braving the carousel for the first time, with Daddy by her side.
