A Little Late, But...

We love you Meagan!!!!!!!!!!!

Our State Fair is a Great State Fair...

If you've seen the musical "State Fair," that title may have you humming now.

We took Nathan to his first Fair tonight. We had so much fun! He really enjoyed being outside all day, and all of the activity going on around him. His little neck may be sore from swinging his head from side to side trying to take it all in.

He got to pick a duckie. I remember doing this at the fair every year when I was a little girl.

He won a red rubber ball. That reminds me of another song...

We also shared one of my favorite fair treats: Dippin' Dots. I was afraid Nathan wouldn't like them because they were so cold, but he went nuts for them!

And this is the face we make when the Dots are all gone.

That sour face only lasted for a minute, and that was the only fussiness all day. So all in all, we had a really good family outing. I can't wait for next year so Nathan can ride the carousel!!

This last photo I'm posting just for my sis, and she will totally get it.

That's all for now! Tune in next time...

I Heart Yo Gabba Gabba!!

Wow! I've never watched this before, but it's my new favorite show! I was trying to get ready for work today, and Nathan decided to be a little clingy, so I turned on the tv. I know, I'm a terrible mother for parking my baby in front of the tv, but I just needed a little time to get some stuff done. Anyway, Yo Gabba Gabba was on, and Nathan was just mesmerized! He wouldn't take his eyes off it! I think I'm going to have to Tivo a few episodes.

We're Back!!!

We made it back okay from our trip to Auntie M and Uncle Dave's. It was a really great trip and we had a blast. We travelled at night on the way down, and Meagan had breakfast for us when we arrived at 5am. Now that's sisterly love! Bacon, eggs, biscuits and gravy, hash browns, it was fit for a king. In a nutshell, we shopped Friday, swam Saturday, went to the zoo Sunday, and came home Monday. I'll be sharing more photos in the next few days, but i have to share this video. I guarantee you, you've never laughed so hard at linguini in your life. This is Nathan eating (or trying to eat) his very first pasta, and trying to figure out what in the world we're all laughing at. We're all just trying not to pee our pants.

Just a quick update!

Not a whole lot going on around here. I just wanted to post a Nathan-update. We went to the doctor on Wednesday, and our little man got a glowing report. He's up to 19 pounds, 7 and a half ounces, and he's 27 and a half inches long. He's growing wonderfully, and ahead on most of the milestones. (i.e. reaching for things, sitting up, rolling over, etc.) We already knew he was doing fabulously there. He sits like a champ and within the last couple of weeks, he's started pulling himself up on the furniture and crawling on all fours. Cousin Matthew's got him beat for teeth, though. He's got two already! Mom and I decided he needed those to help fend off all of those brothers and sisters. (5 of them!!)

Nathan and Mom and I are going to visit Auntie M and Uncle Dave this weekend. We're all so excited that we're counting the hours. Well, all of us but Daddy. He keeps saying, "You're taking my boy for four whole days?? That's such a long time!" He's really going to miss his little buddy!

Well, I know it isn't much of an entry today, but I'll write more later. I know I'll have tons of new photos to scrap and share after our trip, but here are a couple of new pages I've done recently. Enjoy!
