Some more pics from our FL visit ... a photo session with Dad.

We had a morning photo session with Dad as photographer at Wickham Park. It was sooo cold!! I don't know i fyou can tell how windy and cold it was from the pics ... but we were freezing while taking pictures. Thankfully, braving the cold was totally worth it! The pictures turned out great. :) The top pics is me with me three sisters, Natalie, Katherine and Sarah. The middle picture is my niece, Breana, and my nephew, Jacob, along with Rosalie and lastly, of course is a family photo of the three of us.

A visit to Florida ....

Rosalie, Josh and I flew to Florida for four days to visit family. We had a great visit with everyone! Rosalie enjoyed all of the attention and had a blast! We had a wonderful trip!

Our little lamb

Rosalie got this hat for her birthday from her friend Parker. The pictures of her in it were just too cute not to share.

Football time!

The Tigers are having a good year so far and Rosalie has done her part cheering them on every week. So far, they have not lost a game when Rosalie wears her cheerleading uniform. So now, no matter where she is, Rosalie's father requires her to change into her uniform before kickoff. Lucky for her, and thanks to her grandparents, she has two cheerleading uniforms and does not have to wear the same one every week. War Eagle!

Our little Tinker Bell had a wonderful time trick or treating with the kids in the neighborhood. She got lots of candy and really enjoyed hamming it up in her fairy costume.

Happy Bday Baby Rose!

Happy bday baby Rose! She will be one year old on Tuesday and we had a bday party today for the munchkin with family and a few close friends. She had a wonderful time playing and eating cake ... and just having fun with all the attention. :)

A visit from the grandparents and a dip in the pool

Rosalie's grandparents dropped by for a visit and Rosalie was so glad to see them. We had a nice weekend and Rosalie got to spend a little time in her pool. Mom provided the waterfall and Rosalie splashed and played--smiling, as usual.

Running with the pack and tickling the ivory

Rosalie has started cruising and loves to run with the puppies (but it seems to frighten Scoots and Lucy a little!). She has started pulling up on any and every stationary object she can find inlcuding the drawer of dog food. As you can see, she also recently discovered the piano and likes to tap out tunes for us.

A day at the zoo. Rosalie hasn't picked out a favorite animal yet but she seems to enjoy the play area the most. As you can see, Rosalie made a new friend and enjoyed a ride on the carousel. She is just getting bigger everyday and will be a big girl soon!

Rosalie is getting so big! She has changed so much since my last post--which was forever ago! I try to keep up with it but being back at work full time has certainly changed how often I remember to post! So apologies to all who check this regularly!!! Rosalie is crawling around now ... and pulling up ... already! She is getting so big! She now weighs 17 pounds and will go in for her 9 month check up soon. She is such a joy to be around--I don't know what we talked about, thought about, or did before we had her around to entertain us. :) Here are a few new pics. :) She loves the pool! Enjoy! Hopefully, my next post will be sooner than the amount of time it took me to post this one!

Rosalie and Parker

Rosalie and Parker are quite the pair! For those of you who don't know, Parker is our goddaughter ... she is absolutely precious! Liza, Parker, Rose and I spent the afternoon and early evening together today while Josh was out of town. We went to the zoo and had so much fun! Then, the girls took a bath together-I have never seen anything more adorable in my life ... they love each other sooo much!!!!!!!!

Lions and Tigers and Bears ... oh my!

My first official Mother's Day started out great with some yummy butterscotch pancakes and bacon ... and then I started feeling sorry for myself because all the flood stuff ... we really didn't do anything for our anniversary because of it ... and it looked as if we weren't going to do anything for Mother's Day either and I had just had enough of flood stuff for the week! We ended up going to the zoo and getting a membership and had so much fun--it was Rosalie's first trip to the zoo! She especially liked the fish. :) We had so much fun! What a great day!

New chair ... and flood recovery

Rosalie has a brand new high chair seat ... and seems to like sitting in it though not when she is fussing! She likes to attempt to drink out of cups now but can't quite figure it out and screams uncontrollably when you take the cup away. She is growing so much ... and getting smarter every day! She sat up on her own for the first time (without leaning over) today ... she is getting so big!!!!! We are slowly recovering from the flood and are luckier than most--thanks to the great neighbors we have our house is back in order though we have to wait on an insurance adjustor before we can make any of the necessary repairs. Thankfully, we still have flood insurance. For the time being, the only effect on us is the lack of air/heat! So Rosalie is sleeping with us for now so we can make sure she stays cool/warm depending on the night.

More flood photos

More amazing photos from the recent flooding. In the first picure you can see our next door neighbors swimming out to their shed to rescue their gardening equipment. The shed eventually washed away. The rest of the pictures are just photos of our house and our neighbors' homes. Luckily, other than trapping us in our homes, the water has not caused too much damage in new homes on our street. Unfortunately, several of the homes further down the street were flooded.
