Rewind to Labor Day!

Caroline, William and John Thomas

Caroline, Thomas and I were able to take a trip down to Texas to visit family. Thomas and I are honored to be John's godparents! We all had so much fun catching up and eating Aunt Laura's yummy food. Caroline had such a great time playing with her cousins. John Thomas and Caroline laughed and "talked" to each other (they were born only three months apart!) She can't wait until she is old enough to play with William's Lego crane! Uncle Skip took great pictures of the adventure.

Splish splash I was takin' a bath...

I remember my dad singing that song when I was little! I've been singing it to Caroline ever since her second bath (I don't think anything could have been heard over her screaming during her first bath!)
We spent a night at Grammy and Poppy's a few weeks ago and Caroline loved having a bath in Grammy's nice, deep sink! Here's video of the event!

Crawlin' Caroline

Grammy is so sweet to capture these videos on her camera! The top video is of Caroline crawling (and crying at the end.) The video on the bottom (if it looks black, click on the small sideways triangle and it should play just fine) is of Caroline pulling herself and standing without holding on while her BFF Aly Claire cheers her on. As you can see, Caroline is not lacking in the toy department! Sweet girls!

Busy Baby (and Mommy)

School is back in session! My free time is spent playing and kissing on this precious little baby, but right now Daddy is holding the sleeping angel so I can update my blog. I am sure everyone is anxiously awaiting a new post. :-) I'm posting two today, because I never know when my next chance will be!
We have been hearing "dadadadada" over the last few days and she is crawling all over the place! She pulls to a stand from anything she gets her hands on: her exersaucer (which she is strong enough to pull on top of her,) the couch, daddy's leg hair, her changing table and her new piano!Caroline loves music! Daddy bought this piano for her and she absolutely loves it! She lets Grammy and Aly Claire have fun with it when they take care of her during the day. Caroline loves to turn the plastic music sheets (it makes a paper turning sound when she turns them and plays the corresponding song.) We sing along to the tunes and she loves the slide that changes the pitch of the song from high to low.

Aunt Becky came to watch Caroline while I had a meeting. This is how I found them when I came home...I think she loves her niece quite a little bit!

Football season is here!

We had a great time at Tara and Canaan's house at their football season kickoff party. Until I get our video uploaded, you'll have to see Caroline crawl from this succession of pictures showing her getting into the spirit of the season by trying to tackle Canaan. Lakyn is cheering her on!

Tara and Canaan are cheering about his great defensive strategy!
Adam is helping Caroline hydrate after a tough game.
