The Fair!!!

Election year at the Neshoba County Fair... as if the midway, Penn's chicken-on-a-stick and sippin' something cold on the porch swing was not a big enough slice of heaven, good 'ol Southern politics was a welcomed addition.  The Black family added yet another slice of heaven to the fair experience this year... Miss Ely Reed!  She was one happy camper!  I think she enjoyed the horses races just as much as Coco (Uncle Caleb)! 

 And she was oh so cute against the red clay, wet green grass, colorful cabins and patriotic political signs!  Of course, she brought a little bit of all of that home with us! :)
Thursday was our only day at the fair with our little bundle in tow, but we were thrilled to share the experience with her. Happy 1st Fair ER!!!

Patiently Waiting...

If you are like our adorable little girl, you have been patiently waiting for a blog update.  After nine months with no blogging I have decided to pick it up again. Yay! 
So, life has changed alot in the past months... I have a new job (hence no blogging); we built a deck; er moved up to the young toddler class; we bought a boat; er is walking and talking up a storm; i am more ocd than ever; and our baby girl is now thirteen months old!!!  Time really does fly by when you are having fun!

eat it girl

This morning we tried rice cereal with a spoon!!!  ER loved it!  We started with about two ounces of milk in her bottle just to give her something in her tummy.  Then we moved to the highchair (which was also new - and she loved)! I mixed a few ounces of milk with the rice cereal, and we tried out the spoon!  She moved her tongue all over the place, but I think she swallowed some!  Ha!  If nothing else, she had lots of fun!  We had to get to church on time so after about 30 minutes I gave her the rest in her bottle!  Good job Ely Reed!

happy girl!

This is Ely Reed in the morning... she is such a morning person like her Mommy!  Daddy gets up her, sings to her, changes her, feeds her her first bottle of the day, watches Boy Meets World with her then sits her in her swing where she smiles and talks (and sometimes naps) before Daddy returns to put her in her school clothes!  She is one happy girl!  We are truly blessed!

infant baptism

Congratulations Ely Reed!  Our little girl was baptized this morning along with her friends Ella and Emma!  She was a little angel... mostly bc she was exhausted and really wanted to just sleep!
Today ER is officially four months old!  Wayne and I took her to her four month appointment on Friday morning!  She weighed 16lbs 12oz and measured 24.5 inches in length!  She is in the 97th percentile in weight - she loves to eat like her mommy!

the cabin

Wayne, Ely Reed, Dean (MIL) and I traveled to the cabin this weekend for the guys to do some last minute preparation for the upcoming hunting season.  The girls did lots of sleeping!!!  ER even wore her cabin p.j.'s with bambi and bunnies!!!  Too cute!  
Of course, we also watched the BULLDOGS play LSU!  Wayne & his COW BELLE made lots of noise!  ER loves watching sports with her daddy!

big truck

My husband is so happy... he brought home a new truck today!  We have been talking about the purchase for months, but we decided it was time when we had to take two vehicles to the cabin.  He is thrilled!

msu vs auburn

Wayne and I traveled to Starkvegas last night to cheer on the Bulldogs against Auburn.  Wayne was a cutie in his official MSU shirt... My maroon dress was comfy (Thanks Jess)... Tailgating was fun... The box was fabulous (Thanks Lukes)... The game was a bit sad... I hope we can attend a WIN!!!

1 year and $865 later

Yay!  The stand is up, and we are officially ready for deer season!  Wayne designed the deerstand over a year ago!  Then several of his buddies got together and constructed the floor.  Last week the guys built the box in our garage in one night.  Wayne painted the next night.  And this week the structure was put together!!!  It looks great, and I cannot wait to shoot a big deer out of the window.  Good Job Wayno!
