General Update & "Guess Who's 11 Months!"

No post since since last Saturday, I know.  Very busy week at work.  My department is preparing to go through this state-review-like thing, and our first "check" was Friday (glad it's over). Now preparing for another one in two weeks...

As far as what we've been doing...nothing much.  I have pink eye!  Yuck!  I woke up Saturday morning with what I thought was an irritated eye.  As the day went on, I knew it was an infection.  To no surprise, I woke up the next morning with the other eye red and irritated.  So I spent three hours in a doc-in-the-box Sunday; I got antibiotic drops that I have been only halfway putting in.  I'm feeling the pain today, though, 'cause they feel just about as irritated as they did a week ago.  Why can't I ever take my medication right?  I take medication to replace the metabolism hormones that my (now removed) thyroid would produce, and I probably haven't taken my medication right in a whole week.  And this happens all the time!  And I wonder why I'm so chunky these days (besides my irresponsible diet -- haha).  Anyway, so I can't wear eyeliner or mascara (which are the only things I put on my face to spruce it up a little!) or contact lenses.  I hadn't seen my glasses since we went to the beach in July.  Luckily I found them.  Certainly didn't miss 'em.

We tailgated today and the weather was SOOO beautiful!  And we had a little cajun food this time-- jambalaya and gumbo (I wonder if it's because we played LSU...I'm just now seeing the connection).  Anyway, it was so good!

And last, but certainly not least, guess who's 11 months today!  Just one month before Mo is a year old!  Time is going waaaay too fast! At 11 months, she's just becoming more independent every day.  She's trying to walk, but hasn't quite mastered getting past four or five steps.  It is SO much fun watching her try.  She rarely likes to be held these days - she loves to play on the floor.  She'll stand, bend over to get a toy, then try to take some steps.  She does this a lot -- it's so funny.  Another thing she does a lot is want you to hold her hand so that you so you can accompany her on her walks -- and she goes really fast and expects you to keep up.  TOO funny!  Her favorite toys are anything that's not actually a toy -- remote control, cell phone, mama's purse, etc.  I try not to let her play with these items so much, so she often has to settle for her second-favorite toys -- some mini board books, a talking bear, and her Leap Frog table.  Her favorite game is "Where's Morgan?  There's Morgan!"  It's basically a game SHE starts -- not me.  It's usually after a bath w/the bath towel.  She'll hold it over her face until I say "Where's Morgan?"  And then, she quickly reveals her little face and squeals when I say "There's Morgan!"  And we have to do this over and over while I'm lotioning her up after a bath!  Best game EVER!

Here are some pics from tailgating:

Dragging Daddy again! Haha!




Morgan and Her Daddy (Mama sort of cropped herself out of this picture. 
Hey, I told you glasses and no eyeliner!  You don't wanna see that mess!)


Everybody!







I hope everyone's enjoying their weekend (I know some of you are after today's big win)! Have a great Sunday (and rest-of-the-week in case I don't post again)! 

Please excuse any errors!  I am SO tired.  My attempt at proofreading was suddenly interrupted by my nodding off!  Goodnight!!
