Life Lately

22 Oct

We had a busy and fun weekend.

We fit in a trip to the zoo, which may be the last of the season. It was quite chilly and most of the animals were napping or tucked away in a nice, warm spot. Lila insisted that she wanted to get in the water at the splash pad. Luckily, they were already closed down and we didn’t have to break her hear too badly.

It was a jam-packed day because we not only went to the zoo but we also went to the Oakes Farm Pumpkin Patch.

And these two were too cute together.

In other news, Josh and I were able to have a little getaway for our 5 year anniversary last weekend. Our friends let us stay at their cabin for the weekend and we watched movies, read, napped, lazed around….it was fabulous.

I am currently 21 weeks with Miss. Lucy and feeling pretty good. My pants are getting quite snug and I am about to convert to stretchy pants 24-7:)

Lila Chatter

2 Oct

People tell me all the time I need to write down all of the cute things Lila says because I will soon forget whether I think so or not. I thought I would start highlighting her little gems here so I can have them in a safe place.

Recently, anytime she wants me to pick her up and carry her, “I hold you mommy.” 

Anytime there is any kind of boo boo, “It whooots mommy, it whoooots.”

Apparently I tell our dogs to quit barking quite a bit, everyday when we get home “hush puppies.”
