August 18th

Eight months ago the Ladybug was born. 8 MONTHS??!! Are you serious??!! Yep, she's 8 months old and still an extremely happy baby...despite having cut her first tooth (not a fan of orajel, by the way). She is a fan, however, of veggies, Maxx, the Doodlebug, my jewelry, exploring the house, playing with anything other than her toys, pulling up on everything, going on walks, taking baths in the big girl bathtub, squealing, babbling....she's pretty much a fan of everything except orajel.
I'm back at work so both bugs are back to being spoiled by the grandparents on a daily basis. And speaking of being spoiled, they received a package today from their aunt Carrie. Bath time body paints!! How fun is that??!!

P.S. I realize the quality of these two pictures pretty much stinks but you can still get the bug cuteness regardless of the quality.

I have to get better at this.

Let me look at my calendar here and see what we've been up to since we last met...on August 1st...long time ago.

August 7th - me and my brother and my sister-in-law all stole my dad's car (we actually borrowed it) and headed to Arkansas to the farm to see my aunt and my uncle and my cousin and his fam. It was a lot of fun. I don't think Leah (SIL) had ever been on a farm...ever. She had a great time - we all did. We hung out with the cows and she rode a tractor and we played in the hay and the corn. I sat out on the second round of farming and from what I hear that was a smart move. Leah got pounded with, as she says, grasshoppers the size of cats and other various bugs. She even had a tick on her at one point. We brought Trey back with us so he could do his back to school clothes shopping here because they apparently don't sell cool clothes in Texarkana....but they do in the Galleria.

Chad is switching jobs - by choice. He had this week off before he starts his new gig on the 17th. He got to play Mr. Mom a lot this week because I was very busy getting ready to go back to work - also on the 17th. I don't really want to go back to work. Actually, that's not true. I don't want to go and sit through all of these meetings that I'm going to have to sit through this week. I wish I could skip this week and go to the 24th when the kids come back. Did I just say that out loud?

The bugs are great. The Doodlebug still has a couple of weeks before he starts back to school. One more year and he will get to start kindergarten. The Ladybug has been working awfully hard on getting some teeth and one finally broke through this morning. Yay! Big girl!

Have I ever told you how much I heart Sarah and Jason?

I love them because they love my bugs and my bugs love them.
I love them because they will get on the floor and play with the bugs...not many people do that.
I love them because they put up with the Doodlebug's silliness and don't seem to be bothered by it.

I love them because they let me over serve them on fajita and margarita night.

I love them because they always bring ice to fajita and margarita night because my ice maker always seems to run out of ice (it's small). Last night we even got a cake....mmmmmmm......

And I especially love them because they are going to go to Las Vegas with us in November. They haven't actually agreed to this but peer pressure is a bitch.
