10 months old!

It's hard to believe Emory Hart is already 10 months old.  Time flies!  She is such a sweet, silly, wild little one.  Not laid back like Tanner was at all.  She gets into everything.  She hates watching tv.  She gets spats on the hand all the time, but does not seem phased by them.  She loves anything electrical...cords, outlets, telephones, you name it.  She loves to pick up every tiny thing she sees on the floor, especially bugs.  If I look away for a second, I can count on her putting something in her mouth.  Last week I seriously found a roach in there.  Gross!  She knows what she is doing is bad, too.  She looks around to see if we are looking and then takes off the other way giggling when she sees us coming.  
This little lady is crawling and pulling up everywhere, walks along the edges of furniture, and occasionally lets go for a second to grab the next piece of furniture nearby.  No steps yet though.  She did weigh 21 pounds a couple of weeks ago, but is now down to 18.5.  Poor thing hasn't caught a break recently.  She had what seemed to be strep throat earlier this month, got a rocephin shot and took a round of antibiotics.  Now she has bronchitis and is taking another antibiotic.  She is usually a good sleeper and eater, but is neither of those at the moment.  I'm not sure how much is her not having a good appetite due to being sick and how much is her deciding she no longer likes baby food.  She has decided she only likes to feed herself.  We've tried out some table foods over the past couple of weeks.  She's been eating peas, butter beans, fish, french fries, apples, peaches, bananas, and pears.  Oh, and cheese puffs thanks to her big brother. 
She says mama and byebye consistently now, and has also said dada, bubba, and papa.  Her little voice is precious and melts my heart.  I know I have said this before, but I watch in awe when I see Hart with her.  Smitten is not the word.  The picture below shows them dressed alike.  He won't even dress like me!  WHAT?! When we accidently put on the same color shirt he changes.  Now he goes looking for his pink shirt with the purpose of looking like his baby girl.  
Emory Hart has had so many nicknames since she was born.  The poor girl isn't going to know what to answer to.  She was first chunky monkey, then chunky chicken, which turned into chicken wing!  Then she was emmy lou, then lulu, and now she's lucy!  We call her lucy more than we call her Emory Hart.  Don't ask me why, but she knows she's lucy for the moment.  I'm sure it will be something different next month.  We sure love this little girl and think she's the prettiest blue eyed girl we've ever seen.  She keeps us on our toes, but she has brought us such joy!  We love you lucy!

The Mims

The Mims family came to town to escape hurricane Isaac, so we got to spend time with them one night before they headed back home to Destin.  It's so fun getting our kiddos together.  Poor Mrs. Judy, she probably hates us for taking them away from her.  Hart and I wish they lived closer so we could see them more often.  Matt is one of the funniest people I know, and Janelle is just one of those friends that's as good as gold.  Tanner and Judith picked right back up as if they play everyday, and he still calls her his girlfriend.  They are too cute together.  Emory Hart and Hank had fun playing this time, too.  They are total opposites.  Emory Hart is the wild child like Judith is, and Hank is so laid back like Tanner.  Can't wait to see them again!

This Time of Year

We love fall weekends in Oxford.  We didn't get to go to many games last year since I was pregnant with Emory Hart.  This year we plan to go to nearly every game.  The kids do great, and we love the grove atmosphere.  What's better than good food, frosty beverages, and fellowship with family and friends?!  Of course it wouldn't be as easy or fun without Honey and Otto's help.  Hart and I typically tailgate all day with his parents and then we go home during the game and watch it on tv.  Honey decided to go to the house with Hart during the Texas weekend, so I got to go with Otto to the game.  At one point the jumbotron did it's little "kiss someone" time where it puts the camera on different people and they are supposed to kiss.  This is when David Hudson leans down and says, "uh oh Bubba, here's your chance!"  The camera never landed on us, so no worries Hart!  It did, however, land on Leah Hendrix and Tal at that time...and then on beautiful little Cobb two more times.  Who knew those Hendrixes were such superstars!  Here are a few pics from the past couple of football games.

Sweet babies!

We put down visqueen in an attempt to keep EH from eating grass.

Little cheerleader! 

My fave! These 2 can't get enough of each other.

We got to see Ashley both games, too!

Tanner loved seeing Colonel Reb
