5 Months Old & First Shopping Trip


Our big girl is 5 months today! Judging from the above photo, I think she was surprised about how quickly the time has gone by. She is still a sweet and generally happy baby. She is sleeping well again at night, but really fighting those naps. She would sleep for hours if we held her, but the crib is for napping so Mama can get something done. She has been really sweet at bath/bed time, giving big smiles and kisses. She opens her mouth wide when excited and has started sticking out her tongue.

This past weekend we went on a girls shopping trip to Birmingham (my Mom, Grandmother, Kristen, Cousins Kim & Wendy, Lola & I). To say the least, I think we have a shopper on our hands. We were at the mall all day on Saturday and the only time I took Lola out of the stroller was to eat or change her diaper.

My grandmother made us all matching aprons, she made Lola a little apron too.

Sweet Mess

Lola is my little sweet mess, with messy hair. I think she does something new everyday, it’s amazing. Last week I was able to have a girls night with some friends from college, we had so much fun at dinner. Kate, Rebecca, Chris Anne & I got together for a play date on Friday. The kids had a great time, below are a few photos.



This is the only photo of Kate's little Sam (far right) I got all day!

Campbell was so good at holding Lola

This week we were able to go to Colton’s house to play. It’s fun because they are so close in age. Here they are flapping away!



Below is a video of Lola trying to sit up...

This past weekend we were in Atlanta for my cousin Brian’s little boy Beau’s first birthday party. It was a great visit and a fantastic party. They went all out with a “Beau for President” theme. Here are a few pics of the birthday boy!

Happy Birthday Beau!



While we were at Beau's party, we tried out his swing... Lola loved it! (sorry for the blurriness, it was an action shot!)

Lil' Turtle



Lola had a great first Halloween! We were really busy last week but managed to make it to trunk or treat & a Halloween party. Below are a few photos of Lola in costume, she actually didn’t mind the outfit.
