Last Weekend

It was a fun weekend...although we missed Justin, since he was hunting.  

Friday after school, Justin and I met with Collier's teachers to just be sure he is where he is supposed to be.  No surprise, that he is doing great and is sweet in school and right where he should be.  I know he is smart but I never know how or what he is doing at school and it was a good confirmation from his teachers that he is doing what he is supposed to do!

Collier is in the 'don't take my picture' phase.  As soon as he see's my camera he does stuff like this...

which makes me crazy since I am trying to do better about taking more pictures and capturing what we are up to.  Be warned, you will probably see more toy's than Collier.  But sometimes I can bribe him to put the toys down and let me take a picture of his sweet face...sometimes I'm successful other times, not so much!

Saturday we made a quick trip to the grocery is my new effort to shop on Saturdays instead of Sundays.  And Saturday morning are GREAT time and not crowded at all....unlike the mass chaos that is all day on Sundays.  And then after Kenley woke up from her afternoon nap we packed up a picnic and headed to Aldridge Garden's for some outside fun.  We took a soccer ball and football to play with after we ate our lunch.  It was such a nice day and perfect for us to enjoy the outdoors.  We fed the fish, packed up and went home in time for us all to get a good nap!  

 Kenley wanted Collier's sandwich and he doesn't share his food [much like his Daddy]

 She is even trying to climb the fence... while Collier was feeding the fish
 Quack Quack

Sunday we went to church and relaxed for the afternoon waiting for Daddy to get back home!  We were all glad to have him back home.  It is way better when Daddy is home!

Circus Fun

We went to the circus...the first time I have been since I was tiny and Collier's first ever.  Ringling Brother's does a great job and it was action packed with lots going on.  Collier enjoyed it but I thought at times it was either over his head or lost interest...but then they would do something else to grab his attention.

You could go a little early and go onto the floor and see the people and animals...this guy on stilts was extremely tall!

 these elephants both painted a picture!

 They are certainly about music, as is this little man.  He did a lot of dancing in the tiny space he had to work with.  He told me one time he wanted to go down on the floor with them and dance!  

 It was a fun and different experience....Certainly a fun night out with Justin, Collier and me.
Nammy gave Collier some money and this was what he chose to buy with his money - I had gone to the bathroom and I came out to him with this gun in his hands...He told Justin that was what he should buy and it couldn't have made him any happier.  He wanted to hold it and play with the the entire circus, I had to put it away until intermission!

10 months and growing

She is Cute! Yes, I am biased

even if she is drooly

and has cute cheeks: 

She is busy

She likes to climb

She knows when she is doing something she shouldn't be and she laughs...HARD
especially when climbing up the stairs at Mom and Dad's. And just for the record Christmas Day she disappeared and we found her in my mom's room which meant that she climbed all of the stairs and went all the way down the hallway by herself.  We are lucky she didn't take a big crash.  But really she has some good balance and can make it up stairs really well!  She has good balance**see above!

She likes bubble baths the best.  But also likes to sit under the faucet. But doesn't really like it when I pour water over her head.  Which makes no sense at all!
She likes to snuggle with her lovey's.  Lamby, blankets and a bear
She walks and even started running....she is fast

This was the first time I put hard-bottom shoes on took her a little bit to adjust to them on feet!

She hasn't taken well to table food and prefers baby food

She thinks her brother is really funny.  She is right about that.  she adores him and wants to do all that he is doing.  

 She has 6 teeth ALREADY: 4 on top and 2 on bottom

She is 10 months!
My baby keeps growing. Such a sweet baby girl.  Thankful for her every day!
