Aunt Devee and Cousin Lexie Visit

Devee and Lexie came in to stay with Grandmama for the weekend and they came over to watch Sophie while Chad and I went to Nashville. We met up with Amanda and Allen to watch Michael McDonald, better known as Stewart on MadTV, at Zanies comedy club. We went to the 9:45pm show so it was a late night for us. Worked out great to spend the least amount of awake time away from Sophie. We had a fun time!

Nathaniel's Baby Dedication

We went to Nathaniel's dedication on Sunday night. It is so cute to see Sophie interact with her cousins. I can only imagine how much fun they are going to have when they get a little older.

Sophie's 37th Sunday

I think Sophie is going to be a piano player. She really enjoys making music:)

Grandmama and Grandaddy give Sophie Baby Dolls

Grandmama and Grandaddy got back into town after traveling up North for work. They brought Sophie 2 new baby dolls that she immediately loved. Grandmama fed her and gave her a bath. I don't think Grandmama will be traveling with Grandaddy anymore since she missed Karlee and Sophie so much.

The Youell's Come to Visit

David, Carrie and Trey stayed with us for a couple of nights while they were in town for a wedding. When David was out with the boys Carrie and I put Trey in one of Sophie's dresses (my idea). My mom did put David in one of my dresses when he was about Trey's age. He is definitely all boy and just looks like a boy in a dress. It didn't take him but about 5 seconds of being in the dress before he spit up on it....guess he let me know what he thought about that:)
We went to Miller's Grocery on Friday night. It was the perfect place for taking the kids. We made a reservation for 6:30 and had a seat right when we got there. There was a band which is great for any crying (very little of that), the food was fast and so good! We were in the car on the way home by 7:30pm. Aunt Joan and Mom - you will appreciate that David and I ordered the same thing because of the same reasons we are definitely your children with our love for cole slaw and pinto beans together:)
Sophie had a great time with her cousin Trey and Aunt Carrie and Unlce David. I woke up sick on Saturday morning and didn't get out of bed most of the day and made it through church on Sunday but slept for 3 hours between that and Nathaniel's baby dedication. Yucky sinus infection!

Sophie's Second Tooth Breaks Through

On Wednesday, just a week after the first, Sophie's second tooth made it's way through. We knew it was getting close and Nanny noticed it during the day. Hopefully I can get a good picture soon. It is the two bottom teeth.

PaPa's 83rd Birthday Party

We celebrated PaPa's birthday on Sunday evening. Pam and Brad brought Jay and Brenna to the house to ride to Eagleville with us so they could stay the night with Nanny. Sophie got to spend all day with them on Monday. They had so much fun!

Sophie's 36th Sunday

Grant has started asking to "hold" Sophie. It is pretty cute!

Cousin Reunion

Don's first cousins all got together for a little reunion. Contrary to what y'all might think, there are some family members that don't live in Eagleville. Granny had 3 brothers and a sister and some of their children moved away. There is a picture of the cousins and our "Lamb" family that was able to attend (or still there when we took the picture). It was fun to hear stories of their childhood together. Sophie got to play with Lane, her first cousin once removed (or second cousin...however you want to say it).

Sophie Gets Her First Tooth!

The picture is not actually of the tooth...I don't think we will ever manage to get a picture of is hard enough for us to see it! Sophie's tooth has been so close for about a week and it finally made its way through on Thursday evening. Nanny had been checking for it all day so it must have popped through as she was biting on the coffee table that evening. She hasn't been fussier than normal. I just assumed she was wiped out this week from the busy weekend and was tired in the evenings after dinner. I think she and I fell asleep on the couch around 8pm for three nights in a row. Somehow we would wake up around 11pm and I would feed her and put her to bed. One reason I haven't been good about updating the blog.

Sophie Started Crawling!!!

We stopped by Grandmama and Grandaddy's on the way back from the airport. Karlee was there too so we put them on the floor and Sophie took off crawling. She had been "almost there" for weeks but never got the movements down all at the same time. She loves to pull up on everything and it is hard to keep her still. We were definitely not "child proof" yet and it has been a bit of a challenge this week. Why is it that she only wants to go after things she shouldn't have? 

Mama Likes Nice Things

At a good deal. We were fortunate to have Viral's family discount on the room at the Marriott and I bid on priceline for an SUV and got a good deal. Well...I kind of paid a little more to upgrade to the Yukon but it was still a good deal.

Out After The Wedding

We went out to Fox Sports after the wedding to hang out with the Vandy crowd. Jordan, Viral, Lindsey, Brandon (Bundren) and his fiance and Darren (Bjoke) and his girlfriend. Sophie was such a trooper...we had her up till midnight every night. 

Aunt Meghan's Wedding (and Uncle Mark)

The wedding was absolutely gorgeous and everything went so smoothly. The reception was lots of fun. Sophie had a good time dancing and playing with all her new friends. She and her Daddy joined Meghan and her Dad with all the other fathers and daughters half way through their dance. It was so cute! She and Porter, Meghan's friend Ashley and Coit's 7 month old, were the youngest in the crowd. Lindsey took her out to the dance floor to catch the bouquet...the music was "All You Single Ladies". Sophie had fun with her Uncle Viral blowing bubbles. We had such a good time!
