September was a fun and busy month for us - as evidenced by my lack of blogging! I'm determined to get caught up, though!
Here's what we were up to in September. Y'all might want to prepare for a long post!
My little patriotic princess on Labor Day! She's standing "at attention."
We spent a lot of afternoons outside in the backyard playing in the pool and making a huge mess for Justin to clean up. : )
We were so thankful to have a good friend who has a neighborhood pool where we spent many many mornings playing and swimming. How cute are these swim babies?!
Emory and Cammie = best friends! These two are so stinking cute together.
We had a baby shower for our dear friend Madison and her soon-to-arrive baby boy. Of course I slacked and didn't take any pictures other than this, but it was so much fun! It's so nice having a good group of friends here finally! We can't wait to meet baby C!
Emory spent a Saturday shopping with my parents while I napped after working and she had so much fun. She loves going to Sears and riding on the lawn mowers - she must take after her daddy!
We celebrated our friend Abbie's first birthday! It was a party in the park and the sweet babies had so much fun. I can't believe that Abbie is one already! She was the tiniest little 9 month old when we first met her, barely walking. Now she's a (still tiny) one year old walking everywhere!
Who doesn't love a huge ball pit?!
Emory and her friend Lucy - how cute are they?! I think they look so similar!
And in the MOST EXCITING NEWS of the month...
...Candace got engaged!!!!!! She showed up at work to show me her bling bling! Congratulations Candace and Karl!
We have Mommy and Me play dates each week and they are some of our favorite days! I took Emory, Cammie, and Charity on a nature walk at the park and they were the cutest, even if our walk took forever after all the stops! Haha!
At least one baby knows what "say cheese" means!
Story Time at the library is another of our favorite activities! It's a good place for Emory to practice sitting still and listening. And she gets to sing and dance and blow bubbles, too!
Grandma and Emory say GEAUX LSU! I have to be honest, I'm not really a huge football fan, but I do love dressing Emory up for game days! Priorities. : )
When grandma and grandpa are in town, we go over to Gigi's and play with Ginger. Emory likes to help her eat and Ginger is nice enough not to mind!
These two love to walk the neighborhoods and act silly together!
Bubbles at Story Time with her friends! It's so neat watching these little people interact together! Well, when they aren't pushing or biting each other. Haha!
We made it out to Sci-Port one day to explore and absolutely loved it! It's a little pricey to visit frequently, but it's definitely worth a splurge every now and then. They have tons of little things for the kids to play with and do, including these huge teeth!
Beep, beep - get out of the way! This makes me almost hyperventilate thinking about them driving - I know the years will fly by!
Sitting on the table and playing with blocks! She loves to build towers and then push them down!
Emory's first corn on the cob - which I felt needed to be documented. She loved it!
These two are so funny. They just plopped down in the middle of the road and played for a little bit. We are so glad that they live on a dead end street with minimal traffic...and that their neighbors don't mind when these two come knocking on their doors!
Emory has developed a "silly" personality and it's so cute. Once she figures out that something makes us laugh, she loves to just keep doing it! Cammie was telling her to "Get up, Emory Grace!"
More from September to come! So thankful for this beautiful life!!
