Queen Bee

Happy Halloween!!! This year didn't go quite as I expected. I totally planned on going to the Hartley House to greet the trick or treating children and have a cute little family costume. Unfortunately they moved, yesterday. We are very sad. Rosalie is our little queen bee. She is so cute. Enjoy the pictures I took this morning. She is going through a phase where she makes this really weird face instead of smiling, so I did the best I could.

1/2 a Year!

I can't believe my baby is six months old. She is so much fun and is growing too fast. She can sit and roll and sometimes she scoots backwards, but not too far yet. She definitely says "mama" when she is upset, and she reaches for me when she wants me to hold her, it is so cute.
Some things she loves:
All of her baby foods, she has tried all of the basics and seems to enjoy it all
The bulb syringe, but only when I'm not using it on her
Cell phones, we even got her a fake one to play with
Sitting and playing with all of her toys piled on her lap
Being part of the action, she hates being left alone in a separate room, even for a minute
For me to hold her when I do just about anything
Her Einstein jumper
Eating paper
Drinking our water, and playing with a sippy cup
Playing with anything that is not a toy, jewelry, spoons, purses, shoes
Watching other kids play
Smiling for the camera, she is a little model
Playing with her monkey toy, I always find her eating it when I go to get her after a nap
Petting Lucy, the Hartley's dog
Her medicine, she has her first ear infection and she just loves the pink stuff, weird
She is just a very happy, social, fun little girl and we are so lucky to have her

More reasons to love October

Pumpkin Patches and Witches Night Out!!! Those are two amazing reasons to love October.

We had so much fun with Marci and Ellie while they were in town, we already miss them a ton. All of the girls went to the pumpkin patch and the little ones sure looked so cute exploring everything. Rosalie had her first taste of dirt. I think she loved it, haha. Pumpkin patches are just so beautiful, we totally enjoyed picking out our own pumpkin and riding on the hayride. I picked a huge pumpkin, bigger than Rosalie, and I plan to try something very fun with it. Here are some pictures of the beautiful patch.

We also attended Witches Night Out at Gardner Village. It was so much fun. I wasn't planning on taking Rosalie, but Sean was really sick, so she tagged along. I'm so lucky to have such a happy baby, she enjoyed the whole thing and was a very good sport. We started the evening at the Cheesecake Factory with a scrumptious dinner, then we made our way to the event. We danced, we shopped and we just had a blast. Rosalie even tried out the limbo. I'm so glad we could have all of the girls together for this, including my sis.

October - The Best Month of the Year!

I love October, the fall weather starts to appear, the pumpkins, the apple cider, the colorful leaves, the hot chocolate, the warm heater in the house, the crisp feel to the air, Halloween, costumes, parties, My BIRTHDAY, and so much more. But mainly my birthday. I love celebrating.
Birthday Goodies!

my pretty earrings from Sean.
However, this year it was a little anti-climatic, I feel like it wasn't that exciting. I don't know what was wrong with me. I did have a wonderful dinner with Sean and Rosalie and Good Wood. And I also got some really great gifts from the family. I just guess I am more excited about Rosalie and her milestones than myself. She is so funny, we totally enjoy her. She has been trying all of the solid foods lately, and she loves everything, today she sucked on Sean's apple and started yelling at us when we took it away. I think she loved it, and was very mad at us for saying all done. She also says "mamamama" when she is crying. Sean says that she is calling for me, it makes me wish that she said "dadadada" that way I could use the excuse to say that she wants him and then I can have some peace. She is definitely a busy body, always needs to be entertained. It is fun and exhausting. I can't wait for Halloween to dress her up, I hope we have some sort of event to go to. Anyways, enjoy my pictures of October so far.

Pumpkin Head!

What will I do?

What will I do when Rick and Linda and Mimi move? Today I was sick, and I mean really really really sick. I could hardly take care of myself, let alone Rosalie. I was so lucky to have such an amazing and caring family so close by. Linda and Mimi came to my rescue and brought me crackers and gatorade and soup and took care of Rosalie for a couple of hours so that I wouldn't have to expend the little energy that I had. I just don't know how I could have managed without them. Sean had a really big test and was on campus almost the entire day. I am really going to miss them. It is just so sad to me. I have been very upset about this move since the beginning, and it is just getting worse and worse in my mind. I am going to miss them a lot, and so will Rosalie. Thanks Mimi and Linda!!!!
