Do you think she's growing??

... Or perhaps she wanted a little air conditioning in those toes last night???

Partying, Buster style!

We love our friends! The Buster's hosted us last evening and we had a delightful time.
It was great to see the Jones' as well. Love these people!
Three goofy teachers...what lucky students!
Caroline had such a good time she stayed up til 10:30! Lots of giggles and crawling after those handsome Buster boys. What fun!
Two of my favorite girls! We must get together more often!

Fun with Friends Poolside!

Our friends, the Harwood's, hosted a Saturday party for Chris & Patrick. It was so nice to see our dear friends from Florida and get together with a few choir pals to catch up.
Caroline enjoyed playing with cousin Jack and Elinor King.
Ellie has a new little brother, Alex. What a cutie at ten days old!
Giggling girl!
A good time was had by all. It was a glorious fall day- a bit too cold for the pool, but great fun nonetheless.

Bad Hair Day Update...

What can I say?
This girl is one of the most talented sleepers!

Diaper bag scavenger hunt

This is what happens when Daddy unloads the pool bags and diaper bags from the car...
...and leaves them in reach of little hands!
Looks like someone found her snacks!
And helped herself! Well, wouldn't you?

How much is that doggie in the window?

Now that Caroline is on the move...she is simply fascinated by the dog. She even had to go to the patio door to watch Tilly outside. I guess her parents are just that entertaining, huh?

And the doggie in the window is....FREE~ to a good home. It's official...the Smith's have to make some changes. Any takers?

Bad Hair Day?

Apparently someone had a rough nap today! She woke up with the funniest hair yet. The picture doesn't really do it justice. Grandpa thought it was so funny he left it like this so I could see it when I got home.
Almost a faux hawk of sorts. I guess she comes by it naturally. There's a reason very few people in the real world have seen me sans shower. I believe we call it crazy hair! Gee...Grandpa doesn't have that problem! It must be a girl thing!

My girls

Rick captured this shot yesterday while watching 'the girls.' I think it turned out pretty cute. I'm amazed the dog sat still for it. She hates the camera flash, but I guess she must have been thrown off by Rick actually using the camera instead of me. We're definitely keeping the cute girl above...not so sure about the furry one lately! Anyone??

As promised, here's our tutu photo shoot.

I'm lucky to have gotten any of these shots. All Caroline wanted to do was crawl away! Yes, we've been crawling officially for about a week and we're into everything!

I had to sing "If You're Happy & You Know It" to get her to stop crawling and clap her hands!

This is what most of the shots look like...of this or of her back side wandering away. She doesn't want her toys...she wants the speck of dust, trash, or dog hair she finds on the floor. Nice!

She also now dances if you ask her to. She is definitely a music lover. She'll bounce at even the slightest rhythm.

Here's one shot on her quilt. Every time I put her on it, she just crawled away too fast!

...unless somehow distracted!

At eleven months we are eating a lot of table food now. She loves mac & cheese- eats it two fisted, likes bananas, watermelon, beans, meats, cheeses, cheerios, puffs, and more! She's still sleeping great and taking two good naps a day. Not one tooth yet, but we can see one budding on the bottom, so it won't be long. She loves babies and kids and giggles out loud when she sees them in a book or on tv. She waves bye-bye way up high above her head and even says bye now. She loves her Daddy and says Dada all the time. She also says Mama, but mostly says this when she's cranky. If she picks something off the floor she shouldn't have, she'll hand it to you if you say "Thank You." She's also learning the meaning of no, as she often crawls into areas she shouldn't. She is still a delight to all around her and is the happiest baby in the world. We feel so blessed, and can't believe in another month we'll have a one year old. What a ride it has been!

I had to end with this one! Classic!

Go Bucks!

It was a fun day at home. We started out with a trip downtown for the Festifair. Daddy got himself a Brutus to display, and he purchased a hair bow for Caroline in honor of game day.
Mommy made a purchase as well....a pink tutu set for Caroline - watch for this in a future blog post. I couldn't let the entire day be about sports!
And I love this final pic of my family. Caroline was all giggles as Daddy tickled her! We enjoyed watching the game later on with family and friends. A Buckeye win, and a great day together-what more could we ask for?

Reds Fan?

Or perhaps we're hiding due to embarrassment??

Eating the hat now...interesting choice.

And, voila! Yep, I guess she's decided to be a Reds fan afterall!

Labor Day Photo Shoot

Mommy's been itching to do an outdoor photo shoot - so here it is!
Not so sure about crawling on this prickly stuff.
Caroline absolutely loved being outside. She just looked all around and talked to her surroundings. It was so cute. These are just a few of my faves. Going to go back through them again to see if I missed any! Enjoy and Happy Labor Day!
