Here are some pictures of our Lily baby smiling. She's usually a happy girl. It's so nice to see those smiles now and know when she's happy. The outfit in the second picture was the first 3-6 month outfit I put on her. I've been putting off switching her to that size because I just thought they looked so big, but she was really outgrowing her 0-3 month ones, so it was time. I was a bit surprised and saddened when the "big" clothes fit her just fine. I can't imagine how I'll feel when she reaches some actually milestone when a new clothing size made me feel like she's growing too fast.

Jamie tagged me to post the fourth picture from the fourth folder on my computer, so here it is.

This is Josh at some apartment industry conference before we ever even met. It was taken when he lived in Houston, hence the Texans jersey.

Cute Fall Pics

Sorry, I don't have time at the moment to do an actual post. We just got back from Ferriday this afternoon and we took a few cute pics of little miss Lily so I thought I'd post them. She obviously wasn't too happy about being put on the ground with the pumpkins. Enjoy!

First Pigtails

Well, I'm at home with a sick little baby girl, so I've had time to catch up on some blog reading. Since Lily is nowhere near the point of having her first pigtails, and I didn't want to be outdone by Jezebel's adorable pigtails courtesy of Momma Clare, I decided to post a picture of my nephew Lyndon's first pigtails. Back in June when we were all in Shreveport for Connor's birth, Lyndon's hair was getting pretty long in the back because Gabby was waiting on his Daddy to go get it cut. I decided that since his Dad wasn't around, now would be the perfect time to "play with his hair". You can't see them too well in the picture, but they were some cute pigtails. He was surprisingly cooperative and didn't even try to pull them down. I think he just liked all the attention he was getting from his Mom, Aunt Erika, and Nonna for having such a cute new do. Anyway, enjoy the pics and don't tell his dad. I'm sure he'd kill us!!

Our Weekend

This weekend, Lily met a new friend, Luke, at his first birthday party. It was a super fun and very cute party. Luke is so adorable! Josh used to work with Luke's dad, Javier, at the Casino. He and his wife, Katie, are super nice. Javi's family is Mexican, so Luke's grandmother got a pinata and put a few Mexican candies in it. One of them was this chile watermelon sucker. It looked like they took an innocent sucker and rolled it in all sorts of spices. I tasted one, and Josh ate almost half of one. It was definitely different. After the party, we went over to Scott and Vicky's and watched the LSU game with Vicky and the girls. We finally had a chance to get a couple of pictures of the three of us as a family. Notice the matchy clothes at the party and the LSU colors for the game? I was so surprised that Josh went along with that. He will usually change clothes if I happen to put on something that matches him.

Another big event happened this weekend! Little Connor FINALLY got to come home!! I haven't gotten to talk to Victoria much since then, but I know the are doing well. When I tried to call her, she was sleeping. I'm trying not to bother her, but I also don't want her to think that I'm not thinking of her. Anyway, we're all glad that Connor is finally home where he belongs.
