Sorry that is video is sideways!!! But, it's definitely worth the watch. Make sure your volume is turned up so you can hear Minya yelling down the hill. And this is not the instance where her dad dumped her out of the sled. That came later, but like the superstar that she is, she just got right back into the sled, the next day, without any problems. We can't wait to go sledding again - soon!
Minya is still learning about hugs and kisses - a pretty spectacular thing for us to experience. She mostly enjoys making all of the sounds and motions, like an overexaggerated "MWAH" that she smacks onto the head of her stuffed bunny. She is getting better at applying the right amount of force when leaning in for a kiss, which is great for us since knocking heads with her was not too much fun. In the video below, she is practicing her eskimo kiss with her cousin Amira.

she wasn't super excited about the snow suit
Also in October, we celebrated with Minya's Nya-nya's (auntie's) as they tied the knot. Zayan and Beth were married on October 18. It was a beautiful ceremony, with good food and drinks, and at one point Jonathan and I both turned around to see Minya tearing it up in her high chair! Aside from the brides (in our humble opinion), she was the cutest one there.
And of course, this was Minya's first Halloween too. As the story goes, Minya and I were at the store shopping for items other than a halloween costume, when we happened to pass the rack with all of the costumes. Jonathan and I had been thinking that she would make the cutest lady bug or bumble bee, but Minya had her own idea - a lion! She saw it hanging there, and immediately reached for it and growled. So, needless to say, she had to be a lion. Hope you enjoy the rest of the photos of her just swinging. These are truly some of my favorite photos that I will cherish. Hope you enjoy them too.
