I have been so bad about updating this blog that I just decided to post some pictures. I am sure this is making some hard core bloggers about sick! Most of these pictures were taken in early August. I can't believe how much the girls have changed. I will be back on Wednesday to post a bear picture. Caroline will be 6 months old. Is that possible?!?!?
Gosh, I can't believe that Caroline will be six months old in just a couple of weeks. I did remember to take her five month picture with "the pink bear", but of course didn't post it until today! She is growing so FAST! We have tried rice cereal and oatmeal. Not sure she liked them. Lydia really never liked them either. She does however like vegetables. We have tried all the stage one vegetables. Green beans seem to be her least favorite and really liked the rest all about the same. About a month ago I started giving her just one dose of your medicine. I did that for about two weeks and then just stopped giving it to her all together. She seems to be doing great without taking it. Hopefully we are finished with that.
Lydia had to have her picture taken as well :)
A close up!
LOVES being on her tummy! She is army crawling and so very close to the real deal. She is also setting up..what a big girl.
I had to take Caroline to the Dr.'s today. She has had a very runny nose. I guess she just has a cold. Her ears looked good and clear. So, hopefully she will get to feeling better soon. Last night was NO fun for baby or mama! I did get some new stats on her: 18 lbs. 14 oz and 28 inches. She is a growing girl! I can't believe that she is already wearing 9-12 month clothes and I just bought her size 4 diapers..what?!?! I am pretty sure that is the last size Lydia wore before wearing panties!! I did feel like I won the lottery last month. Caroline was running out of clothes..so, I went and checked out some clothes in storage and she can fit in A LOT of Lydia's old stuff! YAY! Like this pink outfit Lydia wore when she was 8-9 months old. I know that Caroline will slim down a bit when she starts moving and groving. Til next time.........
Last Saturday marked the first weekend of college football and the first Wildcat home game. We have season tickets and this year along with some great friends got a parking spot. We were able to get three spots together and they are sweet! So, we left home early enough to get in some major tailgating. I mean that is part of the experience, right?!?!? Well, we at least think it is. It is a lot of extra work and makes for a super long day...but, totally worth it!! I am not sure if I have ever mentioned this before..but, Manhattan is one of my favorite places. I just LOVE it!
It was a beautiful day in the "Little Apple". It is always great to see friends and of course celebrate a Wildcat victory.
It was REALLY HOT this year for our county fair. I mean over 100 degree...AND I don't do over 100 in fact over 85 is really too much for me :) So, needless to say we only made it down to the CCF once. Lydia loved the animals this year. We actually went to the hog and beef shows (which were held in the a.m) and were a little cooler. The pigs were her favorites! We left Caroline with grandma and papa..it was too hot for her.
Wearing her shades ready for the animals, food and rides!
Eating in the 4-H building (it had ac)!
Pink Lemonade really hits the spot!
Checking out the pigs
A cute little bunny
Keatons' cow or heifer (not sure)
Checking them all out!
Lydia really enjoyed the round robin
A funnel cake of course
Loved Lydia's smile..not sure what she is doing!
Time for the rides or should I say RIDE. Lydia only wanted to ride one ride..over and over again. AND she had to drive the purple jeep.
Hopefully it will be a little cooler next year for all parties involved.
The last weekend in June (I think) we had some VERY special visitors. Jeff, Angie, Casey, Segen, and Jeffs' mom Debbie were headed to OKC and made a pit stop at our house. The little girls were able to play a little and then we headed to town for lunch. Segen turned three in August. She is such a sweet little girl and has the most amazing eyes! Segen's big sister, Casey had a dance/cheer contest. If I remember currently they did awesome! We missed seeing big brother Cade but hope to see him this football season!
The girls swinging...they had a great time.

Thanks "S" family for stopping by. It was great to see you guys! See you on Saturday....GO CATS!!
I am soooo behind on blogging. Not sure why?? We really haven't been overly busy. I am also behind on reading others..so, hopefully I can catch up soon :) I have so much to share. I am not even sure where to start!
This summer was full of fun for Miss Lydia Grace. She was enrolled in two art classes, a rec class "Wiggles & Giggles, and swimming lessons. I only remembered to take my camera to W & G. She LOVED it and we were excited the Rec offered a mini session in August.
Lydia was a perfect mixture of shy and willing to participate. She was often timid when the teachers called her name and kinda shy to walk up but did an awesome job up at the front solo. Baby Caroline came with us so Lydia had to be a BIG girl while I stayed back and sat with sis. Caroline did an awesome job as well! I was pretty impressed with the way they both acted.
Lydia getting ready to hit the road for class. She even insisted on a bow (she never wants anything in her hair)
Little sis watching and being oh so good :)
Lydia doing some stretching!
She of course had to have a PINK and PURPLE marker. Her two favs
Love this picture!
Norah Kate taking a turn.
Barrett drawing an awesome picture! This dude will be so creative!
I unfortunately wasn't able to take any pictures at swimming lessons. It was just too HOT for Caroline to be out so Kane stayed at home with her. Next year Lydia will have lessons in the a.m. and I won't have to get in with her...but, it will be Carolines' turn for that!
I am a stay at home mom to a spunky little girl named Lydia Grace and a beautiful baby girl named Caroline Reid. I have been married to my wonderful husband, Kane, since June 2002. I hope you enjoy keeping up with our busy lives through this blog!
