First Library Card

Today Catelyn and I went over to the Vestavia Library, where Catelyn was able to get her very own library card.  To say she was excited is an understatement!  In order to get a card you have to be able to sign your full name.  She was so cute signing her name and then picking out books.  She does such a great job at reading and I hope she continues to grow in her love for books.  Congrats Catelyn on your library card... proud of you!!

She signed her name beautifully proving she is ready for her card!

Signing the actual card.

I love that she added dots to her name. She is so my child. :)

In the children's area, they let you choose a key chain to put your card on when you get a library card.  Catelyn LOVED this and chose a dolphin key chain.  Here she is posing with her new cards and chain.

All of her books and movies in her library bag! :)

Boo Boo's

In the rental house we are living in, there is a metal vent grate on the hallway floor.  Yesterday, Tripp took a nose dive on accident and scraped the top layer of skin off of his nose.  He was a tough little fellow...but I know that hurt!  We put a mickey mouse band aid on it, and that seemed to help some.  :) Hope it heels quick big guy.

The first band aid after the accident. 

Feeling a little better the next day.

We got a smile!  Yay!

10th Anniversary Trip

Back in November of 2012, Will and I celebrated our 10th anniversary.  We had every intention of taking a trip to commemorate such a big mile stone. . . however, we moved to Birmingham instead.  As happy as we were (and still are) to have made the move, we really wanted to set aside some time to get away together.  We finally decided to take advantage of the Fourth of July week and head to Orlando, FL.  Pops and Jack were so sweet to take Catelyn and Tripp so Will and I could hop on a plane.  We stayed at the Hard Rock Resort  and got passes to visit Universal Studios and Island of Adventure.  We also took a day to get massages and lay at the pool.   It was a fantastic trip that was exactly what we needed.  We were able to get some much needed rest and had such a fun time hanging out.  Happy 10th babe!

 The only picture Will and I got together the entire time we were there. least we got one. :)

I think my heart is still on that coaster.  I don't think I quite like roller coaster like I used too. Ha!

I Think She May Be Bored??

I'm thinking Catelyn may be a little board.  Today she entertained herself in some rather comical ways.  First, she decided to rearrange the shoe shelf to make it "more exciting" to find their shoes.  Second, she decided to dress in one of Ann Wilson's newborn footed sleepers.  I knew my girl was small...but good grief. :)  When I asked her to change, she willingly complied, but came out in a shirt and "shorts." These "shorts" are actually pants from an outfit from when she was 3 months old.  We use some of her baby close to dress her dolls.  Never thought they would make a round in her wardrobe again. This girl is a nut!  Definitely got a good laugh out of me.  :)

Comparison shot of sleeper vs Catelyn's size now.

Just to show how tiny she was when she actually wore the "shorts" she's wearing above, the below picture is the same "short's/pants." **picture taken Sept 2007.
