October in Review...

birthday3

bday2   bday1

Welfare Wednesday's at the mexican restuarant, and by welfare... that doesn't mean cheap beers, that means replacing our entrees with a few tall beers and free chips and salsa because we`re broke; homemade apple butter and grape jelly; cabin party for jessica's birthday (note all these silly pictures); wagon rides and crocheted afghans under beautiful shades of red and orange; waking up in the middle night and watching the deer walking around underneath the street lights; painting the kitchen 3 different colors, still not being happy with it and realizing our marriage can quite possibly survive anything... even a fourth coat; a rainy trip to virginia beach to visit kelly and brandon for my 24th birthday and late night chats spilling the little secrets of our hearts- some to take to our graves, some as silly as the jonas brothers; virginia tech football games; a splendid workout regime consisting of an elliptical machine, funny breathing methods and lots and lots of bottles of water and unspoken motivation from 70 year old women; haley speaking in 4 word sentences, singing the alphabet, and putting on her own shoes (usually backwards, but ya can't help but love her!); a stinkin' raccoon the size of a small dog having a little roundevouz with nick's front bumper and causing us to live off ramen noodles for about a week; an expanded bladder infection that had me wanting to tear my insides out and never want to fornicate again; several unsuccessful drunken attempts at learning the hoe down throw down by miley cyrus; driving the blue ridge parkway and taking in God's Country; plenty of Avett Brothers on repeat; Cameron holding her own bottle and about outgrowing Haley (3 more pounds to go...) and last but certainly not least... picking up the fancy sport of golf!

I'm glad all is well and it sounds like you're having a great time! August also is about to outgrow Libby.. 1 more lb!! What's with thin 1st babies and chubby 2nd babies?!

oh, my life... it is such a roller coaster... october has actually been a pretty bad month in the grand scheme of things, but atleast there was a lot of silliness to help us keep our heads up.

I do not know what it is with chunky second babies... but i do know that my arms are getting pretty buff having to lug 20 lbs around in each one! <3

it sounds like things are going really well. lillie is so tiny, i'm glad cameron is actually a squishy chunky baby. i'm really hoping that will happen for us soon. i need more to squeeze on!

I am not sure where the shirt is originally form, it was a goodwill find. the tag looks like it could be one of those featured target designers they have every so often.

Lillie is perfect, don't worry about her being little. Haley was that way, and still is... she can fit into some of cameron's onesies and vice versa! I think it's some sort of fact that your second baby is usually bigger than your first, especially if you have them back to back! <3
