Handsome Guy

I was watching Will this weekend goofing off in the backyard with the football and it just surprises me how quickly he's changing and growing up before my eyes. He's no longer a little boy and becoming a teenager. I know we clash at times as we're so much alike but I sure do love this kid a lot. He's a good one and you couldn't ask for a better big brother. Isn't he just adorable?

Lost Paci

Lily was getting so sleepy laying up on daddy's shoulder and all of a sudden her pacifier (paci)fell out. I saw her wiggling around and feeling her ear and then her neck and then she stopped. I got a little closer and realized she decided to suck her thumb. She couldn't find her paci and I guess figured this would work in it's place. We haven't seen her do it since so maybe it was an accidental sort of thing but isn't it cute? I'm so glad I ran to get the camera.

Gymboree and Wow!!

I got the items shown above yesterday for Lily. I love Gymboree and these things were just too cute to pass up. Pictures will be coming later with her in the actual outfits.

I just love this!! It's from Pottery Barn and isn't it just fabulous!! I love the color and everything about it. Too bad my checking/savings account won't like it. A girl can look, right??

ATC Card Swap

I participated in my first ATC (artist trading card) swap. It was different trying to figure out what to do on something the size of a baseball card. Our theme was to do our favorite season. I like Spring and Fall but I ended up chosing spring as I really like my tulip rubber stamp.

Little Miss Hot Stuff Sittin' On the Bed

First Cereal

This is Lily eating cereal for the first time on August 21. At first she was a little confused but quickly got the hang of it.

A Picture of Me

Hayden drew this picture on his Magna-Doodle. He told me that it was a picture of me. Hmmm...I think I might be having a bad hair day according to him.

Six Months Old

I can't believe that my baby girl is six months old already. Time is passing too quickly. She's just the sweetest and most snuggly baby.

Here's some facts about her at the moment:

- Sitting up on her own. We have to sit her up but will sit for a long time playing with her toys and bouncing around.

- Now that we're sitting up we don't like to lay on our back or sit in the swing too long. It's boring and she's got better things to do.

- Eating cereal and starting the Stage 1 baby food. So far bananas and applesauce are her favorite.

- Drools all the time but still no teeth.

- Weighs 16 lbs. 14 oz. and 26 3/4" long as of Friday 9/19.

- Outgrowing her 6 months clothes and beginning to wear 9 months clothes.

- Her hair is getting thicker and a little longer. It's remaining a dark brown color.

- Now that she's 6 months old, we believe that her eyes are going to remain the beautiful blue-grey color.

- Loves her big brothers so much. Smiles and giggles at both of them. You can just see it in her face that she's crazy about them.

- Starting to give slobbery open mouth kisses to us.

- Likes to fall asleep holding onto your hand or fingers.

- She has chunky little thighs that are so cute.

- She is tickelish and will squeal if you say "I'm gonna' get her" and wiggle your hands in her direction.

- She still loves to take a bath and splashes and kicks water everywhere.

- Likes to watch Fritz walking around and giggles when she touches his fur. Fritz just looks at her and isn't too interested in her though.

- All items that she can get her hands on will go immediately into her mouth.

- Still likes her feet and will use them like little hands. Likes to kick her toys and pull her socks off.

My Favorite Page

I have to say that this is one of my favorite pages ever.

Corn Shuckers

If anyone has a need for two good corn shuckers, please give me a call. The oldest will work for food. He claims I don't feed him enough food but it's hard to keep a bottomless pit full 24/7.

The little one will work for gum. Yes, the thought of getting a piece of gum will motivate this little one to great lengths.

Any takers??
