A Quick Update

For the first time since Monday, my child is asleep during naptime!  Here are some cute shots taken by our SID.  The first is from Fall Festival at WBC, clearly Langley is minnie mouse this year!  The second, I really have no idea when/where this was taken,but it turned out good!

We had our 3rd scrimmage last night.  Things are looking better each time, so hopefully we can get our first real win next Saturday!

Langley and Josh got flu shots this morning (I've already had mine.)  It drives me insane living in a place with nothing to do and nowhere to EAT, but there are advantages like no wait at a flu shot clinic, super nice health department workers, and free shots.  It was so easy. 

We have a full Saturday planned with family time, what's that?!  A birthday party, another fall festival, and the Iron Mountain Festival, it should be fun!  Plus, I have to go on my big monthly shopping trip, such a pain that I have to drive to Jonesboro.  Really all I want is to take a nap and have some peace and quiet for like an entire day.  I can dream, right.

A Visit to the Pumpkin Patch

We went with some friends in our neighborhood to Taylor's Nursery.  They had lots of fun things to do for the kids.  It was cold!

All bundled up...
 Picking her own pumpkin...

 Sharing while they listened to a story...

 Duck races (we just watched these...)

Some Things I Want to Remember

- Langley eats a banana for breakfast every morning.  When I put her in her seat she starts yelling "nana!"
- She is obsessed with shoes and socks and says those words with a lisp.
- Her favorite game is playing chase with Henry.
- She likes to lead the song "head, shoulders, knees, and toes" by putting her hands on her head and singing "hea......" (no d.)  While I finish singing the song she points to her head, toes, ears, and nose.
- I can tell she gets frustrated because she can't talk.  I'm sure this leads to her whining and tantrums.
- She needs another haircut. 
-  I have to lay her on the floor and sit down with her in between my legs to brush her teeth.  She has 10 teeth.
- She doesn't eat very many vegetables these days.  I'm sure it doesn't help that all I want to eat is junk :-)

It was super bright and windy, hence the squint.

Fashion Statement

Langley wore her shirt like this for over 2 hours this afternoon.  I would fix it, then she would "fix" it.  Funny girl!

Classic Sick Girl Pictures

Langley is better!  Woo-hoo!

However, I took these last week during the height of the yuck...poor baby!

End of the Week Thoughts

- It's been a hard week.  I've done nearly every meal, bed time, tantrum, bath, and nose wipe by myself.
-  I'm tired.  Isn't it funny how a baby the size of a grape can make you feel the size of a whale and more exhausted than anything in the world?
-  I never blogged about Langley being sick.  Since Monday we've dealt with croup and a sore leg.  She finished her steroids and we are now just covered in snot.  She is still lethargic and has a nasty cough (not a bark anymore.)  I am so ready for her to be well again.  I am thankful that her leg is fine, she has stopped limping, the bruising is going away, and her scab is healing.  I am so thankful it was not broken.  The x-ray people made me feel a little weird, they were definitely questioning me and trying to figure me out...I understand, though. 
- I also never blogged about our trip to Dallas last weekend for the game.  It was fun.  We sat across the aisle from the A&M student section.  We saw more civilization than we had in months.
- The mosquitos are gone from the most part, but now we have gnats.  Oh the joys.
- October is always the hardest month of the year.
- I'm going shopping tomorrow by myself.
- I've had dreams this week that the baby was a boy and that we rented out our house for $425 a month. Boy = ok; the rent = um, no. When I was pregnant with Langley I dreamed I gave birth to a litter of kittens.  I was disturbed on every level.
- I want to go on a date that includes a meal and watching Courageous.  Langley has to get better though, I don't really leave her when she's sick.  It's probably for the best this week, though.  I've been pretty emotional and I would be likely to continue crying for hours after the movie was over.

Baby #2

I'm pregnant!  I went to the doctor today and everything looked great!  I'm 9 weeks along, with a due date of May 6.  I've already asked if the doctor could guarantee me an April baby...we'll see.  Everyone was very impressed with my delivering a 9#3oz baby in 33 minutes of pushing the first time.  Lord, please don't let this one be bigger!

Here she/he is...
Heart beat was 169.

So blessed.  Excited, overwhelmed, tired, a little scared.  Thankful.
