Litchfield Beach 09′ Faves!

Standard

Last week we spent 7 days at Litchfield Beach with all my extended family, plus Clarke & Bob (who graciously let us use their beach house each summer), Abby (our photographer, nanny, water balloon girl) and Bobby (Griffin’s friend the chef and Millie’s new buddy!)  We went to the beach the first couple of days and realized that it was much easier to take Millie to the pool…although she did love the sand I think she was content hanging out in the clean and refreshing pool too!  It was a fun week and I was sad to come home.

I-scream, you-scream, we all scream for icecream!

Standard

Here are some pictures from yesterday after church.  Stephen, Millie and I went over to Papa and D-dee’s to visit and they surprised us with some “amazing” homemade icecream!!!  What any pregnant girl loves right?  Dad changed it up a little this time and made mint chocolate chip and it was divine. (His vanilla homemade icecream was a tradition when Jason, Justin and I were growing up!) (It’s a secret family recipe though)  🙂  As you can see in the pictures, the kids loved it just as much as I did!  Thanks again dad and Danielle for having us!  We had so much fun hanging out with you both and Josie and Simpson!

MAB Week In Review~

Standard

Here is a little briefing of our week last week! Oh and just some fun facts about Millie:

-She has 17 teethe

-Can walk but would much rather crawl

-Weight 25lbs

-33 inches long

-No longer eats vegetables, prefers fruit (sugar)..we are working hard on changing that!

-Loves swimming, waving and saying “hi” to every big kid she encounters

-Loves to crawl under tables, into drawers, and to stand up in her highchair..also working on that! 

She is definitely on the move and into everything which is keeping me busy for the time being.  I am giving her ALL of my attention right now and I hope that this won’t bite me in the butt when Brooks is born!  She is the sweetest, most loving & well mannered child I’ve ever seen and I am not partial by any means… 🙂

I will now tell you about our week!

We stayed at home the entire day watching the MJ Tribute-such a historic day I wanted Millie to be a part of it-after all, her daddy had the sequined glove, the red zipper jacket, & the moon-walk down to a T!

Purse-Check

Stroller-Check

Baby Mae on her head-Check Check!!  This is the only way Millie will push her baby in her stroller?  I promise I never pushed her around like this as a infant!

Here she is playing in the sandbox!  She loves throwing/shoveling/scooping sand out of her sandbox!

Yesterday we decided to do a little baking for Grand-Bob and Mema and Millie was right there with me licking the spatula every step of the way!  Such a good little helper!  🙂

And Last but not least,  here are some pictures from the sunflower festival we went to on the 4th of JULY!  It was so much fun, the weather was perfect, a lot of things for Millie to do, shopping, good food and just a fun day to spend with my two faves!  This will definitely be a family tradition for years to come!  

Just the 4 of us!

First pony ride-she did not like this either. We put her on the pony, got a picture, then asked for our money back…she didn’t make the ride!
