the fair!

A big thanks to the Luke's for inviting us to the fair again this year!  Chris and Melanie joined us!  The festivities began with the horse races.
The guys had a great time cooking and entertaining! 
Such a fun group of girls... we were ready for the midway!!!
We could not get Wayne to ride the Ring of Fire this year, but he held all of the stuffed animals!
Another great year at the fair!!!

Two Months

Ely Reed is two months old!  Time truly flies when you are watching a little one grow.  Speaking of growth, ER now weighs 13lbs and is 23 inches long!  Everyone says she is starting to look more like me, but I hope she keeps the long and lean look like her daddy!  :)  She is talking up a storm and moving like crazy!  She loves watching the Atlanta Braves with her daddy!  She is truly a daddy's girl! 
I offically go back to work on Monday which is bittersweet!  I am excited about adult interaction, but I know I will miss her like crazy!  
We are so in love with our little princess - or our booger if you ask Wayne!

Sweet Baby Garrett

My beautiful best friend, Leigha, had her little boy on Friday... YIPPEE!!!  Turns out Baby Garrett was actually a big boy, weighing 8lbs 12oz.  Today the Black family traveled to Memphis to meet the new addition to the Dawkins family.  Garrett is a doll!  He has chubby cheeks, loves to be cuddled and has as much hair as his mommy had when she was born!  We could hardly believe the difference in Garrett and Ely Reed's size - they are only two months apart!  Congrats Leigha and Jason!  We love yall!!!

Ranger Ride!

Ely Reed went on her first Ranger ride tonight!  I think Nova and Neeli were more excited than she was about the adventure!  When you say Ranger at our house our black girls go crazy!  We had a great ride around the neighborhood (and I got to go in some new houses that have been built in the last couple of months)!!!  It was a great family outing!  :)

6 weeks

I can hardly believe that Ely Reed is 6 weeks old!  She got her shots today, and they gave her bandaids with characters I know nothing about!  I am sure I will be learning soon enough!  :)  So, the shot deal was not fun!  She cried like she was dying so I started crying... it was just a mess!  I was by myself this time, but I will be recruiting WB for our next visit!  :)  On a positive note ER is growing like a weed!  She weighs 11lbs, 7oz which puts her in the 95%.  She is 21.25inches!  She is sleeping most of the day away and wanting me to hold her (which I love)!  Now I need to start mentally preparing myself for her 4 month shots!
