Thanksgiving 2010

I have been wanting to write a blog about the black deep fried turkey my dad brought home for Thanksgiving or that my daughter got her two stuffed animals, ran to her Pottery Barn chair and said cheeeese for a picture. Butttt my pictures are on the other laptop and I haven't gotten around to getting them to write a post.

Two Weeks

Our baby girl already weighs 7lb 8oz! It is hard to believe in two weeks Madeline will be a big sister! I can't wait to see if they look alike!

Madeline and I have camped out in Lynchburg until baby arrives. We got moved into our new house last week but there is still lots to do there. I realized Madeline went from preemie size, to newborn, just about skipped 0-3 months and went into 3-6 months for a long time. So this baby will start in 0-3 so I had go buy some 0-3 month sleepers! It is amazing to me I am going to have such a big baby! Who would have thought?! Life is good!

Moving Weekend!

We started moving our things into the new house yesterday! Madeline is staying with my parents for the weekend which has been a huge help. I am not sure why I thought moving at 8 months pregnant was a good idea but we are almost done now! I am at the old house taking a break because my husband was having a mini breakdown so I decided to give him some space! The majority of things are at the new house so now it is just a matter of cleaning and sorting! Pictures to come soon!!

My "baby" girl is growing up! Our actual baby has a habit of acting up at my non stress tests, which I get every Monday and Friday. She has failed just about every single one so on Monday I wound up in the hospital monitoring the little stinker. She was just fine and I went home about two hours later, but while I was there I was thinking about how much EVERYTHING is changing for Madeline. We have been at my parents for about two weeks now and she loved it here. Papa and Gran are her favorite two people and I think she is going to be very distraught when we head back to North Carolina. Her favorite teacher at school, Ms Erin, had her last week this week and Madeline wasn't even there to say goodbye! I am very upset that when she returns to school Ms Erin won't be there and I hope Madeline handles it okay! Also we will be moving into a new house and she will obviously have a new baby sister! It is going to be a lot happening to her in a short amount of time! But I know Madeline is a very tough little girl so I just hope it won't bother her too much!!

Halloween 2010!

This was Madeline's first "real" Halloween! I used her same bee costume outfit from last year and it was just as adorable! We started the day off at MeMe's (Taylor's grandma's) house! We had lunch with his family. We then headed over to his dad's house to hang out with him for a little bit! Madeline got lots of sweet treats from those two stops! We went home and had dinner with my parents at Applebees. Then we went down Timberlake Rd making our visits! We stopped at Harriet's house, which was beautiful as always! She had fixed Madeline up a gift bag FULL of goodies. Madeline was SO excited about getting princess dress up, Goldfish and crayons! Then we went my mom's childhood best friend where Madeline scored candy and two little outfits. And ended the night at Taylor's grandparents and aunt and uncle's house. Margo got our girls adorable matching pj's (I can't wait to dress them up!) and our baby girl a Christmas outfit! We ended up getting home too late to do actual trick or treating (Madeline fell asleep in the car on the way home!) Once home my mom turned on our porch light (at 8:30!) and her and Madeline were able to hand out some candy to a few late night trick or treaters! We had a great day and I am so glad Taylor got to be home with us. We are so blessed with such amazing family members!
