May I please just say that I had a delightful day?!
|The above three images are from Ellie's nine-month photo session, taken by my son, James. |
I wish I could have posted *all* of them!!
Ellie was napping when I got to Jocelyn's (which is typical). One of my favorite things is to call to her, after she's woken up and Jocelyn's tended to her, just before Joc brings her downstairs. Since it had been over two weeks since I'd seen her last, I wasn't sure how she'd receive me (that's a long time in the mind of a nine month old!), but I needn't have worried. She came down the steps with that same look of expectation and grin when she saw me . . . the one that charms my socks off!
|Sporting the new socks Neesey brought her back from her trip to Maryland.|
She's grown ... in two weeks she's gained a pound, added hair, and had a third tooth come in! And she gets cuter every day.
I had another surprise waiting for me at Joc's, too. My birthday present from her family!
It had gotten in before my birthday, just not before I left. It was a biggie on my wish list. I'm anxious to try it out!
I had to laugh when I realized that it came from a place in South Pittsburg, Tennessee -- we pass it every time we travel up 72 E to Chattanooga!
Leia was anxious to try out the box it came in:
I've told you I've created a fabric monster, haven't I?!
She just loved the print, so she had to order a yard of it. "You can make a dress for Ellie, right?"
Believe it or not, the birthday fun continues today. Todd and I are headed out to lunch with the staff from the Madison Baptist Association. They are celebrating the October birthdays at Connor's Steakhouse. YES! That will definitely be one awesome meal!
We're still waiting on June . . . Kim says she's stubborn! She was moving around the other day and when I put my hand over to feel, she gave me a little 'pow-pow' with her foot. I'm so excited!
And don't forget to check out today's offerings in the Wicked hop!
