Pumpkin Patch Fun

*Tuesday, October 30 - I have added a couple more farm pics.

Ryan and I took Julianna to a little farm with a pumpkin patch today. We had a great time. It was a beautiful day with temps in the mid 60's. They had all kinds of animals there. The goats were talking really loudly and scared Muffin. But she loved the little piggies (or maybe they were my favorite and I'm projecting :) I tried to get pics of her and the animals, but pretty much none of them turned out. It is hard enough to get pictures of babies or animals on their own, but together - FORGET ABOUT IT :) Here are some pics from the day:

This one is my favorite, I think. So sweet.

Fun In The Apple Box

If I've ever in my entire life had as much fun as Julianna looks like she is having, someone please remind me what I was doing - I need to do it again, soon! It's amazing - You can buy them toys with bells and whistles and it is the boxes that they love! Hee.

Hi. I really just wanted to drop off some pics. All is well here. Not much new going on. Aunt Stephanie had a layover in Charlotte on Sunday so we went to see her at the Airport. Julianna seemed a little over stimulated by the whole thing. She was cute nonetheless. Muffin is getting increasingly brave and trying to climb in, under and around EVERYTHING! You really have to keep your eye on that one. She has gotten stuck under our ottoman more than once :) Daddy finished up most of the baby proofing last week. He actually carpeted (temporarily, of course) our raised brick fireplace hearth. He also put styrofoam pipe insulation around anything resembling a sharp edge. I do admit that I feel a bit better. Not complacent, just less hyper-vigilant. On to the pics:

Petting her horsey.

Daddy gave mommy a break and took Julianna over to the park to swing!

I was letting Juianna crawl around in the bathroom while I was running her bath. She LOVES magazines!

With Aunt Stephanie at the airport.

Doing a little light (upside down) reading... She is sitting on our newly carpeted and styrofoamed fireplace :)


Good Morning!

Daddy's Little Pumpkin! (It's what her shirt says.)

Thanks to everyone for voting. The candidates really are neck and neck. A few votes are still trickling in (though I have my suspicions that some are voting more than once :) so I will call the winner in a couple of days. If you haven't voted yet look at the last post and leave a comment. Thanks! I am just dropping off a few pictures.


Adorable Little outfit Nana Louise sent to Julianna last winter. Our tiny little thing is finally able to wear it!

Reading new book that Aunt Stephanie sent.

Halloween Costumes

I bought 2 Halloween costumes for Julianna thinking that I would try them both on her and Ryan and I would decide which one to keep. Well, what do you know, Ryan and I disagree. We have decided to leave the decision up to you guys. Take a look at the following pics and then leave us a comment telling us which one we should keep. You can just vote anonymously if you want. THANKS!

Little Chicken:

Kitty Kat
*Note: If you guys decide on the kitty she will wear a little black turtleneck underneath (if I can find one).*

October 3, 2007

Sorry it has been so long since I updated. We have had a pretty busy week or so. My dad has been out of town so Julianna and I stayed with Grammy a couple of times this week to keep her company. Julianna also had her 9 month check up. All went well although I would not say that Muffin was on her best behavior. She decided that she didn't want the doctor to look in her ears and that was that. She cried and put together a pretty good little tantrum - maybe her worst one yet! Oh well. She is once again in the 90+ percentile for length and only the 10-20th percentile for weight. She is just a teeny tiny little thing - only 16 lbs 8 oz. The doctor assures me that she seems perfectly healthy and it is not uncommon for their weight to slip on the scale a bit once they get mobile.

Oh and also, my fairly new (May) camera was stolen. I went to Target to print out a few pics straight from the camera on one of those kiosk things. Well Julianna started to cry and I started to give her a bottle and walked away without it (I left it plugged right into the machine). I didn't realize I had left it there until I got home. By the time I called Target it was gone. I was REALLY bummed. It was a fairly expensive tiny little camera and as you know, I carry it EVERYWHERE with me. Also there were quite a few pics that I hadn't yet saved onto the computer :( So anyway, I've got a new one on order. In the mean time I have taken a few pics on Ryan's VERY old, VERY slow digital camera. By the time the thing is ready to take pics Julianna has moved on to something else. Luckily that is usually equally cute. Anyway, here are a few pics from this week:
