7 months old and going to the polls….historical day!


Today we all woke up bright and early and headed to our tiny town’s voting polls and casted our votes!  Millie was the youngest voter in line!  She wanted to go with us to experience this great day that will someday be in our history books. 🙂  With Stephen being the history buff that he is…we just had to let her be a part!  She got to watch daddy vote and see how the voting process works!  She even got a Georgia Voter Sticker and has worn it all day!  I also wanted to catch you all up on Millie’s milestones as she is getting much more advanced!

Millie is now:

~sitting up by herself

~eating table foods

~trying to say mama, hey & dada!

~standing up by herself while holding onto something

~cutting two more teeth

~hmm, lets see what else….well i think that just about covers it for now!  i will fill you in later if i think of anything else.  

So today is special in that 1- it is one of our country’s most historical elections in history, and 2- that Millie is now 7 months old.  What a special day!!  Hopefully McCain/Palin will pull it off…actually, hopefully enough people will get out there and VOTE!!  Happy Election Day and please vote.  May God bless our country no matter what the turnout ends up being.  Lets all continue to PRAY!

Also, below are a few pictures of Millie’s first hand painted portrait.  A family friend surprised us with this picture…it’s amazing that she painted this from a picture!  Thank you Barbara for blessing us with your “hidden” talent! Who knew you were such an amazing artist? 🙂 We will cherish this now and many years to come!!!

  1. WOW she is growing. Thanks for the update you have been slacking lately. Still need to send that shirt down, I think I posted a picture of AMelia in hers but if not I will fwd you one.

  2. Miss Millie – your granddaddy and I just looked at you voting for the 1st time and the beautiful portrait of you. Aren’t you beautiful and something. Your Pop was over here for a meeting and said come look at precious Millie. You are so pretty.

  3. love millie’s website. it is so special just like she is. can’t wait until we can start quilting for her. tell stephen i am making a quilting “care package” for you. i’ve put my old cutting mat, one of the rotary cutters i don’t use anymore and a clear ruler. i also ordered a book last night on the internet with different versions of cathedral windows…we might find something new to do. we do need the measurement of the bed so we can figure out how big to make the spread. excitedly waiting for january!

    love aunt barbara
