7 3/4 Months Old

Lydia is almost 8 months. She has had a very fun and playful time during her 7th month. This has been one of my favorite times to watch her grow, play and interact. She has a very fun personality and loves to entertain and be entertained. She gets very excited to be with friends, cousins, and grandparents. She is going through a hair pulling stage (so sorry to all her friends) because she gets so excited to see everyone that she just can't contain her happiness. She is rolling, sitting up, saying "hieeee" and smiles most every moment. She loves to fly in the air, splash in the bathtub, listen to her daddy read books, and put everything in her mouth. Her favorite two things right now are her Johnny Jumper and Pappy (The O's family dog). We fall more in love with her each day and am sure that everyday will be our favorite with our very happy bundle of JOY!

Santa Claus is Coming to Town...

Today we took advantage of a free picture with Santa at Walmart. It wasn't a great Santa, but it was free and there was not a line. I believe that they are doing free pictures with Santa the next 3 Sat/Sun. from 10-2. They print your pictures right away in the photo lab. We are so excited to have our first Christmas with our baby girl!

"It's Beginning to Look a Lot Like Christmas!"

Josh and I decorated this past weekend. Boy is it a chore decorating the house for Christmas. I was so glad to be finished late Sat. night. I believe the new parents in us made us eager to get the tree up and ready for Lydia to explore. She likes it but thinks that the singing snowman is the coolest decoration in the house. Here are some pics of Lydia enjoying the tree!

Owens and Waldo Clan

Here are two fall photos of the Owens and Waldo families. This time last year we were just finishing up with Sara and Darren's wedding and beginning to plan for the arrival of Lydia to our family. What a busy (and wonderful) year it has been.
Thanks Jill, once again, for capturing great photos of our family!

Halloween Night

Lydia had a great Halloween Trunk or Treating at church. She thought her Aunt and Uncle looked more cool than scary. Zoe, Garrett and Brayden looked cute too with their costumes! Our little Zebra got tuckered out pretty early from all the fun!

And the tag continues

Here are the rules--
1) Each player starts with eight random facts/habits about themselves.
2) People who are tagged need to write a post on their own blog (about their eight things) and post these rules.
3) At the end of your blog, you need to choose eight people to get tagged and list their names.
4) Don’t forget to leave them a comment telling them they’re tagged, and to read your blog

Ok, so here are my fun 8 facts:

1. I love the singer Kasey Chambers,, I even considered naming my child (if it were a boy) after her boy's name: Tallon. I have seen her in concert twice, front row both times and adore her!

2. I taught fifth grade for two years and first grade for four years. Loved them both and loved each day of teaching.

3. I have a crazy fear of storms (especially tornado watches/warnings).

4. I have traveled to 8 countries: Canada, Mexico, Belize, Costa Rica, England, Scotland, El Salvador(for a short five min.) and Hong Kong.

5. My daughter's bedroom was also the room of her grandmother (in the 70's) and my room during college.

6. I enjoyed pregnancy and labor and can't wait to do it again! I can attest that breaking a leg in three places is more painful than labor....ok, I did have an epidural.

7. While dating, Josh and I spontaneously left BG for Atlanta, just to eat dinner- Pappadeux's, try it if you are ever there.

8. I do not like fried chicken! I will not eat it with a goat, I will not eat it on a boat!!!

I tag Tonya, Heather, Ashley and Carrie

Half a Year Already!

Our Lydibug is already 6 months old! I can't believe it and am a little sad that she is changing so fast. I am proud and happy for her milestones that she reaches, however I know that the little bitty thing I brought home from the hospital isn't as little bitty anymore. She has richly blessed our lives and has been a joy each day. We love her smiles and laughs and everything that she is!

Scoot, Scoot!

Lydia is scooting everywhere. In no time she is off her blanket on the floor and rolling and scooting all over the place. Crawling will come next and oh, how are our lives will change!

At one moment she is in the middle of her blanket, and the next she has found her way off to new adventures.

She soon discovers that the coolest place in the room is under the couch.

She understands "crawling position" but can't get the motion just yet!

Louisville Zoo

We have had a great couple of weeks! Josh has been on fall break and we have traveled to the Louisville Zoo with the Lowe clan and also to Gatlinburg with the Owens clan. Lydia has loved being around her Grandparents, Aunts, Uncles and Cousins. We are so blessed to have made such wonderful memories. Enjoy the slides of both trips.

We had such an awesome time catching up with everyone, I wish I could have captured a picture of everyone we saw on our quick tour. We miss everyone so much and hope they can visit us sometime soon!

Here are some cute recent pictures of my baby girl...she is starting to sit up and play with her toys now! She is such a big girl.

Oh and by the way, the cute jeans are from none other than Aunt Sara!
