Fall Photos at the Park

These are from last week - a night after work at the playground. Miss Personality!

Running to the playground

Fun with Daddy

Soaking up the time with just the three of us. Seems like yesterday we were doing the same with "just the two of us". The Little Green Family is growing!

36 weeks tomorrow. Due Date is Nov 25th, but we've scheduled an induction for the 19th if she doesn't come on her own before! Three more weeks at most... crazy!

We've been SUPER busy working on the back of the house addition... pictures coming soon. Sheetrock is being finished in the next day or two and we are so excited. Chris has had many late nights doing the electrical. He's the best.

I've washed the baby clothes, and now Chris and I have been in a nesting mode...

Zoo with Friends

A couple of weeks ago, Bella and I joined Esther and Anderson for some fun at the zoo. The carousel and train are still favorites.

Look how big she's getting!!

Chelsie is 21

This post is almost as belated as her present. Almost.

Chelsie turned 21 on Oct 6th! She has been planning forever a dinner party with the family to Taqueria (they just opened one in Athens this year). She wanted a margarita. And I don't blame her. They are so good there. And I can't wait til I can have one...

This party was complete with a family picture, cookie cake shaped like "21", and plenty of "Tardy for the Party" singing and dancing.

I love you, Chelsie!! I am sorry this is so late. But you know you are my #1 sister, and always will be! Thanks for being YOU!

Here are a couple more posts about the night:

Melissa is my brother Ryan's sweet girlfriend. I wanted to write an entry about her because:
1) She has a new blog: http://melissagouge.blogspot.com/
2) Her and her family thoughtfully let us borrow the moonwalk Bella used on her birthday (Thanks guys!!)
3) She and Ryan hung out with her the night of her birthday while Chris and I went to small group. Check out some great pics here!!

4) She is doing the 3-day walk this weekend in memory and honor of so many! We are so proud of her, I know Ryan is!! She has worked so hard and surpassed her $2300 goal, but She also had a personal goal to raise more, so if you'd like... you can order a cookbook from her!

Melissa, we'll be cheering you on!! :)

Bella's 2nd Birthday Party


Again, my little girl turned 2 this weekend. Crazy.

She is basically communicating every thing you can think of these days. Tonight, for example, she told me how there were "old raisins on the floor" (from this morning), and how they should "go in the trash, but they were in her mouth." She cracks me up and amazes me.

My favorite things she says right now are "heart" and "yeah". Nothing special about the words, but the way she says them are great!

She's also quite the hugging and kissing fool. She is constantly grabbing my hands to kiss them. Or even better, when she grabs our face with both both hands and kisses us. She also likes EVERY boo boo kissed immediatlely. If we are not right there, she will kiss it herself and say "all better". Love that.

I could go on and on, especially since I have not been blogging regularly. But I will get to some pictures from her birthday!

She LOVES moonwalks. Couldn't get enough. Before the party, during, and after. Here she is with Noah:

With Dad:

And with Granddad's:


The kids also really enjoyed the chalk and the fish in the pond at Kristy & Pauls. Thanks for hosting again, guys!!!!!!!!!

Awesome Minnie Mouse cake by Morgan

Some great pics!

Morgan and Uncle Brian

Bella and GG

Awesome one of Bella's Great-Grandmothers! (Grandie and Grannie)

And look at these adorable personalized aprons that Nana got Bella and I. Who knew I'd get such a cute gift (that I've secretly been wanting!) as well?

The chances were that is was going to be raining on Saturday. But it ended up being a beautiful day. Thanks to ALL that celebrated with us. Bella had a great time, and she was given some great toys. And a special thanks again to Kristy and Paul for letting us use their great home to celebrate!

Happy Birthday sweet Bella Reese!

Farrah at 34 weeks

I had my 34 week appt and an ultrasound yesterday! Seems Miss Farrah is still measuring 2 weeks ahead (so about 36 weeks!) I may have as few as four weeks left... ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhh! I am so ready and so not ready at the same time!! :)

Here are some stats on Farrah:
* She's already about 5 lbs 15 oz. That's like 6 lbs, people. (Bella was 8 lbs 2 oz)
* She has atleast a little bit of hair
* Looks like chubby cheeks and big lips (seriously, her lips were the first thing we noticed!!)
* She's perfect.

Yeah for big babies! I'll have an appt in 2 weeks where we'll measure again, then schedule an ultrasound for the following week. From there, we'll see how big she is and maybe schedule an induction (we just don't want her to be too big). They didn't actually change my due date yet (Nov 25th).


I have a couple of friends that just had babies within the last week, check them out if you want:
