Lotta Stuff!

I often go through my day saying "I need to blog about this." By the time I get to updating the blog, either I forget it completely or I just leave it out in fear of "blabber poison" to my blog. But tonight, I'm just letting it go. I'll even need subtitles! :)

Someone's Eight Months!

Yep, our baby girl turned eight months yesterday. It's just so fun to see her grow and develop in all these different ways. She's a creeper -- not quite crawling, but something between scooting, going backwards, etc. She manages to get across the room in the blink of an eye. She does all these weird things with her legs and arms that let me know that I need to start babyproofing. And she's obsessed with the legs on the those little tables we use to eat dinner in front of the TV. We now have to put those up as soon as we're done. They're so light -- she could easily tilt them over!

As far as her eating, she gets lots of fruits and veggies. She still loves oatmeal. We don't even have to add fruit to it for her to eat it. She's not in love with fruit, anyway -- we have to add it to a veggie for her to eat it. Sweet potatoes and carrots are her favorite. And she started meat (chicken) today -- and hated it. Speaking of food, I'm still making her food. She's yet to have a jar of store-bought baby food. I've even managed to travel a few times and use the food I made at home. And that speaks volumes, 'cause y'all know I've traveled three hours with no formula before. Which reminds me I really need to add a jar or two of (store-bought) baby food to my diaper bag for WHEN I forget again ...


Overall, we're just still smitten with our little girl. I have a feeling that'll never change...

Summer. Is. Over.
Yep, I officially go back to work Monday. I remember last summer feeling so content because I managed to accomplish a whole lot. Of course I did all kinds of baby stuff -- ordering nursery stuff, registering, etc. I finished my masters. I taught summer school. I organized all kinds of things in my house (nesting, I guess). This summer? Please. Remember that list of stuff I wanted to do? Well, I just did the fun stuff. All the stuff I needed to do? Ha. I'm a little bummed about it, to be honest. But what's done (or NOT done) is done , and I'll just have to get over it. Overall, I've had a GREAT, GREAT summer staying home with Morgan!

Coaches' Family Pic Day
The other day we took our family pic for the football program, and it felt weird having a child to include this year. :) Morgan did so well. She liked looking at all the kids, and even let some of the faculty hold her. The pics below were taken with my camera. Hopefully the one taken with the photographer's camera shows my true, slimmer self (yeah, right).
The Kids
My child probably sees a bug crawling on the sidewalk.

Other Happenings
DK's been out of town for camp, so Honey Gran (Danny's mom) has been kind enough to stay with us. Mo also got a chance to see her MeMaw (my mom) today, who she doesn't see as much. Before that, she saw her cousin Alteria. Alteria just started cheering, so we went to peek in on her practice.
Helping Daddy pack.
With her big cousin, Alteria.

Boot Camp
And now, with only a weekend left before going back to work, I have to organize my house (one of those things I didn't do over the summer). So, it's 1:39 AM, and I plan to stay up all night and at least get one room done (or started -- I'm not THAT motivated, LOL). Pray that I get some order to my house before Monday. Besides a little get-together at my boss's house tomorrow evening, organizing is all I'll be doing all weekend!

I hope you have a great one!
